  1. SAP and German Telekom, commissioned to define a standard for Industry 4.0, an initiative by the German government, marks the opposite of a solid decision. Both businesses have made a name for themselves with proprietary software. The web as we know it, owes much of its dynamic development to open source and the acceptance of a standard of usability defined by user behavior accepting such usability.
  2. Can algorithms do the math?
  3. End all sedate, self-indulgent twaddle, all eyes on usability.
  4. Knowledge transfer is broken.

Move over citizen journalism: here comes a much smarter future

 

 

First off or perhaps there is a simultaneous development underway, the consumer is returning to being a citizen and continues to take on responsibility. When did the citizen become a consumer anyway?

 

 

Can I still post cat pictures?

Yes you can.

 

 

A little souvenir

A Little Souvenir

A little souvenir from the German/French Arte tv documentary:
Wünsche werden wahr. Die Entstehung des Kaufhauses
(whishes come true – the rise of the department store)
.

 

 

“The customer is not dependant on us – we are dependant on her.”

“The customer is not bothersome, she doesn’t disrupt our work, it is her what it’s all about.”

“We don’t do her a favour when we serve her. She does us a service when she offers the opportunity to serve her.”

Aristide Boucicaut, Bon Marché

 

 

This Idea must die

March 2nd, 2015 Comments off

 

A compendium of answers Edge founder John Brockman collected by posing his annual question — “What scientific idea is ready for retirement?”

“To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes even better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact,” — Charles Darwin.

A catalog of broken theories that hold us back from the conquest of Truth.

 

 

Much effort and rigor goes into what idea we must dispose of. Is it time to consider that in the early 21. century we are picking up where the age of enlightenment left of in the 18th Century?

A belief that animals where without foresight and empathy is what we fifty-somethings grew up with.
We believed that fishes won’t feel pain since they were not equipped with a voice we could understand.

German design walking dead

Was it Anthony Bourdain who during a tv sequel on Germany suggested,
that they are all dead?

 

 

Terrible!

As long as our perception is dominated by digital, “terrible” must be the most used word in front of any display. Huge praise for German television, many stations are set on transformation in early 21. century.

 

 

Clear

A welcome best practice demonstration of German design from Hamburg. Product design by design agency Korefe. Subtle and simplistic as is, it clearly stands out from the over-ambitioned design confusion are confronted with on the supermarket shelves.

Today more than ever, design offers a passage to integrated marketing. Design is a more capable a problem solver where politics, education and businesses have lost their way.

 

 

People simply want it more simple

People have problems and businesses are here to solve problems (Ana Anjelica). When a product on a shelf, piled with design cluttered products, get’s our attention for its lack of design, then it resolves into behaviour (Naoto Fukasawa), gets taken of the shelf and brought to the cashiers.
