Can You Trust Apple? Facebook? Google? - YouTube May 2019
"Right now, three of the biggest companies on earth - Facebook, Google, and Apple – are telling vastly different, conflicting stories about your privacy. So, who can you really trust? Marketing 101: Every company is telling a story."

"Today, the only difference is that each company is much more actively trying to step on the other, with their mutually-exclusive stories about collecting your data.
First, Google, embraces it - arguing that you shouldn’t just tolerate their using your data, you should want it. One because giving your phone more information makes it more useful. … And, two, because all this data, in aggregate, makes these services better, cheaper, and more accessible to, say, people in poverty."

"Apple, meanwhile, rejects the whole concept. Tim Cook argues that’s a fake trade-off designed to justify a business model where you are the product, not the customer. Not only does your iPhone not need your data to be useful, it says, it doesn’t even want it. For Apple, storing your information is only a liability.

Now, whether you buy that logic or not, you have to stop and admire its genius. Because, if Google says your data is what allows it to sell cheaper products, then Apple can argue it’s higher prices are a feature. You should feel good paying more for an iPhone, because it’s proof Apple doesn’t need to sell you out to advertisers."

"While Tim is busy waxing poetic about privacy, Google just points to the price tag – everyone wants to save money. And, finally, Facebook, denies it. … Notice, by “private” it means ‘exclusive’ or ‘separate’, not necessarily “your data stays between you and your device, or you and the receiver”. In other words, it gets to capitalize on the buzzword - like ‘Cloud’, ‘AI’ or ‘blockchain’ before it, without having to make any significant changes."

"The priorities of a growing company, like Facebook in 2010 when it got caught sharing your private information, are very different from those of an established, dominant one, like Facebook today. A growing company is much more willing to move fast and break things because that’s what it takes. It’s easy to do a bad thing, get big by doing it, and then say “Look at us, aren’t we cool for not doing that bad thing anymore!” See: Uber. It may be strategically smarter to fix a problem later than do the right thing all along. Facebook got where it is today by eating up your data. But, now, it’s an open question whether it really needs it anymore."

"So, follow the business model. The only thing you should trust is that a company will try to do what’s in its best financial interest. So, make sure their’s is, at least, kinda aligned with yours."

"Whenever there’s a big hack, Tim Cook will, predictably, do a few interviews about privacy, trying to convince you that Apple’s interests are most aligned with yours. With every update, Google, will try to do the same, by giving you more features and more value in exchange for your data. And, Facebook, will… keep apologizing. Now, it’s just a question of whose story you buy."

"Can You Trust Apple? Facebook? Google?" on YouTube
"Right now, three of the biggest companies on earth - Facebook, Google, and Apple - are
telling vastly different, conflicting stories about your privacy. So, who can you really trust? Marketing 101: Every company is telling a story."

"Today, the only difference is that each company [Apple and Google] is much more actively trying to step on the other, with their mutually-exclusive stories about collecting your data."

In practice, the "stories" he's rehearsing here are theories/models in the Shiller vein.

"First, Google, embraces it - arguing that you shouldn’t just tolerate their using your data, you should want it. One because giving your phone more information makes it more useful. [...] And, two, because all this data, in aggregate, makes these services better, cheaper, and more accessible to, say, people in poverty."

"Tim Cook argues that’s a fake trade-off designed to justify a business model where you are the product, not the customer. Not only does your iPhone not need your data to be useful, it says, it doesn’t even want it. For Apple, storing your information is only a liability.
Now, whether you buy that logic or not, you have to stop and admire its genius. Because, if Google says your data is what allows it to sell cheaper products, then Apple can argue it’s higher prices are a feature."

"And, finally, Facebook, denies it. “The Future is Private”, it says, so while the old website emphasized the News Feed – an open, public place to talk, the “Town Square” is becoming more like a “living room”. Now, with the redesign, it’s all about private groups and communities. Notice, by “private” it means ‘exclusive’ or ‘separate’, not necessarily “your data stays between you and your device, or you and the receiver”. In other words, it gets to capitalize on the buzzword - like ‘Cloud’, ‘AI’ or ‘blockchain’ before it, without having to make any significant changes."

Amazon's playbook for crushing startups - YouTube, Nov 2019
"And that's the PlayBook: With (1) an unfair advantage in access to information, (2) capital and (3) sales channels, plus (4) strong ecosystem plays like Prime and Alexa as well as (5) a lack of pressure from investors to show short-term profitability, it's no wonder Amazon is one of the scariest competitors on Earth "

The Unacclaimed Accompanist - YouTube, Jul 2019
Graham Johnson examines a problematic profession that continues to attract many gifted young pianists to its ranks and asks why.

A lecture by Graham Johnson, Classical Pianist and Accompanist 7 May 2019

https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-an...

There is far more to piano accompaniment than meets the ear or eye. Vocal celebrities are reliant on an accompanist’s skills in indisputably great music composed for an equal partnership of voice and piano, and yet the hard-working pianist’s public profile seldom matches that of the singer. Skills developed over many years are often accorded faint praise and small fees.

Omniwerk: Instrument builders in wonderland | by Bachtrack for classical music, opera, ballet and dance event reviews
Via David Bruce, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0GJ1D10zro

"At last summer’s BRQ Vantaa Festival, audiences were introduced to a remarkable new instrument: the omniwerk. Jonte Knif and harpsichord builder Jukka Ollikka combined two historical keyboard instruments – the geigenwerk (or viola organista) and the lauternwerk – into one totally new instrument."

The Harpsichord's Historical Pickle - YouTube, Jun 2018 - David Bruce Composer
"The harpsichord has certainly suffered from the slings and arrows of historical fortunes. In this video I look at how the rise of the piano and later the early music movement left us with a historical pickle which needs some clever players and manufacturers to find a solution for. It remains an amazing instrument which I've enjoyed writing for several times in recent year. "

(6) 100 year old Polyrhythms Vs. New Polyrhythms - YouTube - David Bruce
I look at the musical reasons composers use polyrhythms, taking two composers over 100 years apart - Chopin and Ligeti, both wrote music filled with polyrhythms. Although their music sounds very different, their aims were surprisingly similar.

In Search of Lost Time on YouTube - The New Atlantis, Laurence Scott, Summer 2019
"But while there are few things more clearly of-the-moment than our biggest video-sharing site, YouTube is also the closest thing we have invented to a time machine: Its channels open new routes back to the past. Over these years I’ve come to understand that my YouTube, what I make of it, is one of the most melancholy places I’ve ever visited"

"The French theorist Roland Barthes was sensitive to both the melancholy and the spectrality of images from the past. His concept of “the punctum,” which he formulated in his meditation on photography, Camera Lucida (1980), predicts some of the angst of inhabiting YouTube’s emotional landscape, its world of resurrected moments. The punctum is a detail in a photographic image that pierces the viewer’s imagination. For Barthes, it is “that accident which pricks me (but also bruises me, is poignant to me).” The punctum is never part of an image’s intended meaning, never a planned, conscious detail but rather an accidental, tiny storehouse of emotion. Watching old YouTube videos originating from my childhood years is guaranteed to leave me feeling like a pincushion. The puncta are everywhere."

"Much of my YouTube nostalgia is explicitly, tenaciously sought. With eyes wide open, I’ve gone in search of a specific scene from the 1980s cartoon Ulysses 31, a sci-fi retelling of Homer’s Odyssey."

' “What are you doing here?” carries with it an air of trespass that can accompany any journey into the YouTube Time Machine. The controversial Article 13 of the new digital copyright law, just passed in the European Parliament, seeks to make YouTube and other platforms responsible for policing the illegal use of copyrighted content. '

"The digital, unbloody ease with which YouTube revives the past, so much more nimbly than its DVD and VCR predecessors, invites us to become re-watchers of the same content. Indeed, quick repetition is a main feature of our new digital aesthetics. Whereas we use GIFs — those twitchy, looping clips — as public illustrations of our feelings or responses to events, an oft-repeated YouTube video is the GIF’s private counterpart. Re-watching familiar videos can be a kind of secular prayer. There is comfort in the repetition, and the videos to which we give this repeated attention can feel deeply personal."

"The way cameras capture sunlight — how sharp or powdery or white or golden — or the subtle changes in tone that microphones give to voices, are historically specific."

"For Freud, melancholia and mourning are both connected to a loss, but differ in how the loss is perceived. While a mourner is vividly aware of why he despairs, the source of a melancholic’s lamentation can be harder to identify."
