Humans Need – Not Apply

If you, like me, love #technology, you’re in the right place.
The world is changing, faster, always, infinitely, unpredictable for the current mindset and stronger than any thought or belief.

Rebooting the World

Are you ready for the new?

It’s coming

{Infinite Loop} Begin;

Macrowikinomics is the story of a world with two starkly contrasting realities. On the one hand, many of the institutions that have served us well for decades, even centuries, seem frozen and unable to move forward.

On the other hand, we see sparkling new possibilities as people with drive, passion and expertise take advantage of new web-based tools to get more involved in making the world more prosperous, just and sustainable. It’s a story of atrophy versus renewal, stagnation versus renaissance. And now every organization, and every team budding leader within them, must grapple with a profound choice: participating in reboot all the old models, approaches and structures or sit on the sidelines and risk institutional paralysis or even collapse.

We’re not talking about tinkering in the margins, but about reinventing and overhauling crumbling institutions and outmoded ways of working.  Inded, ……

Luck

Luck is an event that meets three tests:

(1) some significant aspect of the event occurs largely or entirely independent  of the actions of the key actors in the enterprise ,

(2) the event has a potentially significant consequence (good or bad), and

(3) the event has some element of unpredictability.

Return on luck. Great by Choice, Collins and Hansen

The new consumer and its choice alternatives

“As we get deeper into filters and how they work, it helps to get an overview of their many types.

Let’s start with music.

Here are some of the many different filter types a typical user on Rhapsody might encounter in a single session as she or he looks for new music.

From the front page, a user might start with category, wich is a form of a multi-level taxonomy.

Let’s say you begin in Alternative/Punk and then choose the subgenre Punk Funk. In that category, there’s a best-seller list, wich is led by Bloc Party… If you click on Block Party, you’ll find that pattern matching has created a list of related artists, wich includes the Gang of Four. A click on that produces the list of “followers”, wich is a form of editor recommendation (you may also be pesuaded by the editorial review).

Among those…

Mind Theory

…the desire to find there three psychic agencies had been sparked by a diagram Freud published in the course of summarizing his new structural theory of mind, which he developed in the decade 1923 to 1933. That new theory maintained his earlier distinction between conscious and unconscious mental functions, but it added three interacting psychic agencies: the ego, the id, and the superego. Freud saw consciousness as the surface of the mental apparatus. Much of our mental function is submerged below that surface, Freud argued, just as the bulk of an iceberg is submerged below the surface of the ocean. The deeper a mental function lies below the surface, the less accessible it is to consciousness. freudstructconsc-2 Psychoanalysis provided a way of digging down to the buried mental strata, the preconscious and the unconscious components of the personality. Picture of Freud’s structural theory

What gave Freud’s new model a dramatic turn was the three interacting psychic agencies. Freud did not define the ego, the id and the superego as either conscious or unconscious, but as differing in cognitive style, goal and function. According to Freud’s structural theory, the ego (the “I”, or autobiographical self) is the executive agency, and it has both a conscious and an unconscious component. The conscious component is in direct contact with the external world through the sensory apparatus for sight, sound, and touch; it is concerned with perception, reasoning, the planning of actions, and the experiencing of pleasure and pain. In their work, Hartmann, Kris, and Lowestein emphasized that this conflict-free component of the ego operates logically and is guided in its actions by the reality principle. The unconscious component of the ego is concerned with psycological defenses (repression, denial, sublimation), the mechanism whereby the ego inhibits, channels, and redirect both the sexual and the aggressive instinctual drives of the id, the second psychic agency. The id (the “it”), a term that Freud borrowed from Nietszche, is totally unconscious. It is not governed by the hedonistic principle of seeking pleasure and avoiding pain. According to Freud, represents the primitive mind of the infants and is the only mental structure present at birth. The superego, the third governor, is the unconscious moral agency, the embodiment of our aspirations. Extracted from: In the Search of Memory, Eric Kandel

Changing perspective

Well, well, well, it’s always time to think about change, eventhough change is not an easy thing, it is inevitable, and is happening all the time, despite efforts from established forces, economic and social forces, to make their predictions valid, evolution is an unquestionable path. Will always be.

If you believe that changes are harder that ever, believe me, you’re wrong. In fact, things are changing faster and faster at every year, and even if society cannot make the hard changes to improve life quality, this changes are also in course, propelled by every little change that happens every time.

What am I talking about?

I’m talking about technology. Yes, technology, the ultimate expression of change and the spring that pushes us ahead. When a child, I always felt that I had to surpass the success of my parents, because I started from where they dropped me, where they “ended”. And even if they did not end at all (my mother is still a very productive person), I was somehow right. It’s not easy to overcome a smart person as my beloved mother, but it is a natural path, once I started learning things from a point she presented me.
To say, I started from a point they put me. And my kids, our kids, are doing the same to surpass our logic in the very near future.

They are different because they live in a different world than the one I lived when their age.

No one can stop evolution, or even control it. Even if the economical and legal models try to interrupt disruption through questionable laws, people will organize themselves craving for change. To me it sounds like the new technologies that are somehow supporting the Digital Era at the beginning of the 21st century.

Once again, huge changes won’t be easy, disruption is also a pain, but a new paradigm solve old problems as well as bring to light new ones.

So, don’t be afraid, don’t be negative, keep believing in things you love, be honest with yourself, seek the best balance between collective and personal welfare, because inevitably technology will change it somehow. It has nothing to do with actual standards, priests, politicians or regulators. They will pass away. It has more to do with science, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, robotics, genetics and life reengineering.

Evolution is a recursive algorithm. Old people fear the new. Keep dreaming, this is a virtual world.

Netflix stays in the picture

I have Netflix at home, my kids prefere it than cable television, as well as I prefere to get rid of commercial intervals. I basicaly watch kids content.The content is of good (average) quality, even though I think it have to get better, especially in the kids section. Over all, the price factor is really attractive, and the hardware independence is something very subtle and interesting.
The best part is to eliminate conventional broadcasters and their sponsors.

Long live to technology.
