A pointer to the lost infrastructure of social media

August 15th, 2016 Comments off

More than a decade ago, the earliest era of blogging provided a set of separate but related technologies that helped the nascent form thrive. Today, most have faded away and been forgotten, but new incarnations of these features could still be valuable.



lost infrastructure
As social networks grew in popularity and influence, the old decentralized blogosphere fell apart and those early services consolidated, leaving all the power in the hands of a few private companies. That’s left publishers and independent voices even more vulnerable to the control points of a few social networks and search engines.

Passion and purpose of indie music


Beyond its DIY approach and aim for a more independent approach to producing music, passion and purpose of indie music is to produce music of a quality that is not universally compatible with mainstream audiences.


Music of mass destruction quality


Today a highly commercial product sells a riskier set of sophisticated high quality to the mainstream audience than indie music can claim. It’s a lesson of the strong individual capable of collaboration and market a sophisticated package to a more capable mainstream audience. Music of mass destruction quality.




Now that the more experimental, progressed music is accepted and consumed by a broader mainstream audience, do we still need underground or indie music?

Digital is just getting started

Longtail has just gotten longer



“Vanity trumps privacy,” as already proven on Facebook. “Wherever attention flows,
money will follow.”

just getting started
Uber owns no cars; AirBnB owns no real estate.
Access replaces ownership for suppliers as well as
consumers. On-demand rules. Sharing rules.
Unbundling rules. Makers multiply.

Countless artificial smartnesses, will be added to everything, all quite different from human intelligence and from each other.

We are at the beginning of the beginning — the first hour of day one. There have never been more opportunities. The greatest products of the next 25 years have not been invented yet.

You‘re not late.

The car that didn’t make it through ignorance

The noble Lancia Thesis, that didn’t make it through ignorance in 2003

Neither elegance nor effectiveness helped this Italian car pass through ignorance.



On a stroll through Frankfrut, I could sense a limousine turn into the street I was on. And there it was. The Lancia Thesis.

An upper class sedan the kind Mercedes claims for its brand. But with a way better price-performance ratio. That no competitor offered in its category.

Some 13 years later, I feel the same sensation when a Tesla comes down the road in my posh Munich neighborhood.

When something unusual is about to happen, people can sense it before they get to see it.See more Lancia modelson Spiegel Online
