How Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google manipulate our emotions | Scott Galloway

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 19:06

The combined market capitalization of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google is now equivalent to the GDP of India. How did these four companies come to infiltrate our lives so completely? In a spectacular rant, Scott Galloway shares insights and eye-opening stats about their dominance and motivation -- and what happens when a society prizes shareholder value over everything else. Followed by a Q&A with TED Curator Chris Anderson. (Note: This talk contains graphic language.)

It’s a good, no, great talk about principles of leadership by Bryan Cantrill. At turns hilarious, angry, and poignant, it is quite simply one of the best talks I have ever seen about what we’re building in tech and why and how to do better. We need to move forward, take responsibility and begin to tear down a culture in which “always be hustlin'” is a leadership principle. A frank, harsh look at Amazon, Uber, and techbro thinking, with some eulogy to Sun baked in. It’s a great talk. Please watch it.

Fun times with low code and case management

1 Comment

I recently held a webinar on low code and case management, along with Roger King and Nicolas Marzin of TIBCO (TIBCO sponsored the webinar). We tossed aside the usual webinar presentation style and had a free-ranging conversation over 45 minutes, with Nicolas giving a quick demo of TIBCO’s Live Apps in the middle.

Not the long tailAlthough preparing for a webinar like this takes just as long as a standard presentation, it’s a lot more fun to participate. I also think it’s more engaging for the audience, even though there’s not as much visual material; I created some slides with a few points on the topics that we planned to cover, including some fun graphics. I couldn’t resist including a visual pun about long tail applications. Smile

You can find the playback here if you missed it, or want to watch again. If you watched it live, there was a problem with the audio for the first couple of slides. Since it was mostly me giving some introductory remarks and a quick overview of case management and low code, we just re-recorded that few minutes and fixed the on-demand version.

I’m finishing up a white paper for TIBCO on case management and low code, stressing that not only is low code the way to go for building case management applications, but that a case management paradigm is the best fit for low code applications. We should have that in publication shortly, so stay tuned. If you attended the webinar, you should receive a link to the paper when it’s published.

The Evolving Developer Advocate Role — A Conversation with Google’s Kim Bannerman

1 Comment

At this year’s Cloud Foundry Summit Europe, the story was about developers as the heroes. They’re the ones who make the platforms. They are akin to the engineers who played such a pivotal role in designing the railroads, or in modern times made the smartphone possible. This means a more important role for developer advocates who, at organizations such as Google, are spending a lot more time with customers. These are the subject matter experts helping developers build out their platforms. They are gathering data to develop feedback loops that flow back into open source communities for ongoing development.

On this newest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, TNS founder Alex Williams sat down with Google Program Manager of Developer Relations Kim Bannerman to discuss her role, and how working in the cloud continues to shape the way today’s organizations are doing business.

In her interview, Bannerman noted that while many companies have already completed a migration over to the cloud, some have not yet done so, and platforms such as Cloud Foundry are helping them to bridge that gap.

“So often, even now we’ve got systems folks on one side of the fence, and developers on another side of the fence, and it was always, ‘their problem’ and they were never really involved,” Bannerman said. “We spend so much time arguing about what level of abstraction our customers should focus on, but so many of them are just trying to get to the cloud still. That’s why I think Cloud Foundry is a good place for that.”

In This Edition:

1:00: Highlighting Kim Bannerman’s role at Google.
4:09: What brought Bannerman to the Cloud Foundry Summit.
7:08: How to delineate between Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry.
10:22: How is Google changing from an enterprise perspective and a cloud-native perspective.
14:31: Why foundation participation benefits Google’s customers
16:37: Taking customer feedback on products back to foundations and open source companies to continue its progress and build them out into products.

The Cloud Foundry Foundation sponsored this podcast. Google is a sponsor of The New Stack.

We're building a dystopia just to make people click on ads | Zeynep Tufekci

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 22:56

We're building an artificial intelligence-powered dystopia, one click at a time, says technosociologist Zeynep Tufecki. In an eye-opening talk, she details how the same algorithms companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon use to get you to click on ads are also used to organize your access to political and social information. And the machines aren't even the real threat. What we need to understand is how the powerful might use AI to control us -- and what we can do in response.

How we'll earn money in a future without jobs | Martin Ford

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 14:38

Machines that can think, learn and adapt are coming -- and that could mean that we humans will end up with significant unemployment. What should we do about it? In a straightforward talk about a controversial idea, futurist Martin Ford makes the case for separating income from traditional work and instituting a universal basic income.
