The Crummy Pillow Paradigm

Noted

Bob Borson writes

If you think that you can’t be a part of the solution, you never will be. In fact – and possible even worse – you stop seeing the problems.

Mindset is everything.

I’ll add that I am always saddened when I work hard to find a solution to problem only to learn that the problem was ill-defined. What a waste!

A clearly articulated problem liberates the mind.

The Rise of Distributed Autonomous Companies

Commentary

David Morris has a thought provoking post about Distributed Autonomous Corporations (DACs) on Aeon:

When everything from your alarm clock to your car is managed remotely through the global network, autonomous cloud robots will run free.

DACs should make us think about the immediate consequences of the rapidly accelerating automation of our economic system.

They sound like science fiction, but we may all have DACs soon due to an increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment.
