The original sin of tech boosters and critics is an undue focus on what a technology *does*, rather than who it does it *to* and who it does it *for*. When it comes to technology's effect on our daily lives, the social arrangements matter much more than the feature-sets. 1/ An altered version of J.C. ...

This is the premise behind my idea of the #ShittyTechnologyAdoptionCurve: if you want to do something horrible to people with technology, you must first inflict it on people without social power. 3/

Discussions about #FreeSpeech are misguided in the information age.

Even before our voices are drowned out by the noise on social media, or overwritten by information combatants, we lose our agency and decision autonomy to manipulative complex systems we don’t fully understand.
The whole point of the #enlightenment, the scientific revolution, our educational and #epistemic institutions was to empower individuals to find a way out of their self-imposed #immaturity, to take #agency over their lives and make informed decisions.
We need #epistemic clarity about reality, for without it, our agency will be blunted & our freedom a charade

It is public-interest education, journalism & science that truly make individuals in a #democratic society free, not the right to cast a vote or to elect a representative

Let me start with #insulin. In the 1970s, insulin was extracted from the pancreas of animals. In the 1980s, @Genentech, working with Eli Lilly (@LillyPad), developed insulin using a new technology that I call #PrecisionFermentation. It wasn’t animal insulin. It was human insulin.
The mainstream would say: “health care is slow, it can’t be disrupted.”

Well, here’s the S-curve of #PrecisionFermentation human insulin. Human insulin disrupted animal insulin in about 13 years.
#PrecisionFermentation is a concept that I coined in my @rethink_x report ‘Rethinking Food and Agriculture’ with @CatherineTubb in September 2019.

I got my Prius in 2004. The car cost $30,000 but over the 17 years I owned it, it saved me $35,000 in fuel costs (compared to my prior #auto)

I was a BIG fan. Now I'm a big Toyota critic

#automotive #disruption #disruptiveinnovation #CES2023 #WEF23 #COP27 #climate #EV
From Leader to Laggard
Toyota has sold ~5M globally. Sales peaked in 2010 at 500,000 units

For the last few years Toyota has been campaigning against EVs. Why? 1) Because it's far behind in the #tech; 2) It's working to promote hybrids

#disruption #ElectricVehicle #CES2023
I've gone from being a major fan of Toyota to a major critic

Toyota has chosen to be on the wrong side of history. EVs outsold hybrids for the first time in 2021

Toyota has gone from darling to villain for environmentalists

wie sich erklären liesse, warum es keinen "professsionellen informationsjournalismus" @foegUZH gibt, welche die arbeit @elonmusk nüchtern einzuordnen getraut?
zunächst?

wäre es nicht über jahrzehnte wünschenswert gewesen - in so manchen branchen - dass nicht nur von #disruption hip, hippster, hyperventiliert gequitscht, sondern auch tatsächlich durchgeführt worden wäre?
wieviele jahre haben sich universitäten für ihren umbau gekauft? #wissenschaft

“Solar is the cheapest form of #EnergyGeneration on the planet, unsubsidized. Solar is the cheapest source of #energy in history. Nothing else is as cheap as #solar — today.”
“Solar is so cheap that the total costs are lower than just the #OperatingCosts of #coal, #nukes, #oil, or #gas generation… that’s today! Even if you get that gas #PowerPlant for free, the costs of running that power plant are higher than all the costs of #solar.”
“For purely economic reasons, #solar is already disrupting everything else.”

By introducing 'Shopify Audiences', the e-commerce services provider used by >1m online shops turns into a consumer data broker, exploiting data on purchases from across 'opted-in' shops to 'find' (single out) likely buyers for targeting on FB/Instagram.

"By enabling Shopify Audiences, you agree to contribute certain store and customer data to the audience network that all participating Shopify merchants contribute to ... This collective data is used to to develop an audience of potential customers"

Cross-context personal data sharing at scale to profile and single out individuals, but 'securely' and 'encrypted' and 'designed for privacy' 🤖

It seems that Shopify considers shopper data as its own 'first-party' data. Analysis on a data-industry blog:

1/ Dear all, before everyone freaks out complete re the #supply #disruption of #natural #gas to #poland and #bulgaria which was initiated by #gazprom yesterday, i thought i'd make a little explanatory thread.
2/ first, consider poland. it exports about 10 bn m3 annually from russia. Image
3/ however, natural gas is not so important for its primary energy supply. poland still heavily depends on #coal, in particular for its electrical energy production. Image

1/ Yes, #Academic reasoning of value proposition. I have over 11+ years as an academic & professor. Most academics are good at analyzing & assessing things, as to building #DisruptiveTechnology The hungriest & most talented #entrepreneurs who designed from 1st Principles $eGLD ⚡️
2/ They have sold public that somehow you can have #Academics analyze something that has NEVER been done before. The very premise of value proposition is faulty at its core. $eGLD & $ADA You don’t know what you don’t know in #DisruptiveTechnology that is what makes it disruptive
3/ Many people don’t even understand what the #DisruptiveTechnological cycle looks like, behaves like or that this is what they are investing in. #CriticalThinking has all been lost among some. The level of comfort & deception is powerful. $ADA will do well but any one believing

Ready to organize for #disruption? Start here (and now). by @charleneli via @LinkedIn linkedin.com/feed/update/ur…
Great theme, @charleneli ! #TMO #Leadership is even more essential at this highly anxiogenous times of sanitary and economic upheavels. Had a chance to #brainstorm a few thoughts with my son, @Leo_Ferret, here:
Back in Dec. 2017 we conceived a #branded #message to stimulate commitment towards “Resolution Quotes” to help people think about their own and help them start off to a New Year by revisiting and strenghtening your #purpose, #mission, #vision & #values.

While lockdown has been slow for some, it's certainly not been for others who have smelt the winds of change!

#SPACs are bypassing Direct Listings & IPO's in a race to market - Sucking up all that 💰 hunting for returns 📈

#Fintech joining 'Democratise & Digitalise everything'
#China seem poised to become the worlds leading power - #US are on guard! 🧐

Little bit like their former communist friends (Russia) the leadership are getting their Oligarchs/Titans in-line & on-message before their potential big push.

Part II of the $CRSP $SGMO comparison will hopefully be a bit less dry now that Part I updates are in place. This thread will focus more on valuation, outlook and why the valuation cycle should matter to investors.

The 'buzz word' in business - Footy is soon to get it's dose

What's this about though?

#Control #Money #power

These 'Elite' club owners will point to #UEFA & #FIFA chequered pasts & say "We'll do it better"

Despite massive numbers in revenues💰💱 Football clubs are so bloated, the top guys feel they need more!

For long term planning, they need control of the rules of competition too.

The huge swathes of capital hoarded by the investment banks/rich are willing to fund this new comp
The #PremierLeague will end up a place for the 'Elite' teams in the new #EuropeanSuperLeague to play their so called reserve squads - Because the rewards on offer merit that.

That said, with the huge revenues they will dominate, those reserve squads will still be the best ⚽️🤯💁

After the most unpredictable year of all, get set for another one. Here, in handy A-Z form, are a few pointers and things to keep an eye on across the global sports industry in 2021. #sportsbiz.
A - Action: With global movements gaining real momentum, this has to be the year for more tangible organisational action - staff training, recruitment practices, coaching, mentoring schemes and leadership education - across the industry to make sport a more inclusive place.
B - Bundesliga and the big 5: Across European football, getting fans back into stadiums remains the top priority, but there are challenges everywhere as clubs flex their muscles, the @Bundesliga_EN searches for its new CEO and Ligue 1 tries to sort out its TV and financial mess.
