I. This Week’s Analyses
- A Bragi Dash Retrospective [Antoine RJ Wright]: there’s been a lot of talk about the Apple AirPods, but this competitor has some novel features that the 800-pound gorilla is lacking.
- The Threat to Science No One Talks About [Joe Brewer]: interesting take from a new friend, closing in on 1000 recommends.
- Just Go With The Flow: The Math of Fluid [Mathspace]: if you haven’t seen complex physics and math topics boiled down onto a napkin for a normal person, you haven’t lived.
- Night Owls Are Smarter & More Creative, According to Science [Melissa Chu]: the title says it all, with citations by academic researchers.
- Limits of Growth — Weber’s Law & Its Implications [Selim]: learn a new scientific law today, then apply the concept to startups and cities, or even humanity at large.
- 12 Tech Theses of the 2030s [Sean Everett]: replublished on The Mission, give it a fresh look if you haven’t in awhile.
II. 180 Fountainhead Analyses, Now For Free
As promised in previous Diary’s, I’ve gone through and unlocked nearly all 180+ fountainhead analyses. The collective set will be fully unlocked by the end of this week. If there’s one specifically you want but hasn’t been opened up yet, just give me a shout and I’ll do it. Unfortunately, it’s a manual process as Medium has no bulk unlock feature so that’s the issue at the moment.
III. Newsworthy News for Emerging Tech
More proof of the 12 Tech Theses of the 2030s:
- Biomimicry: the future of skin.
- Humanism: trust those who are trustworthy.
- Music: something new, to bob your head to.
- VC: as defined in the beginning from the documentary Something Ventured.
- PE: global activity for Q2 2017.
- Startups: $1.5B of wasted capital on mis-understood futures.
- Futurism: earning a living 150 years out by our friends at WEF and Kuka.
- Space: what is it? As a platform. Nuclear power on the moon to break ice into Oxygen, Water, Hydrogen. That’s life support, folks. The US Air Force is already gearing up to protect it.
- Biologic Intelligence: imagine not having to obtain 30,000 samples, but just one. Sigh… Connectomics is the answer.
- Self-Driving: dirty secret: every car is using the same AI model. One fails, they all fail. Wouldn’t you rather have one that adapts?
- Mathematic AI: history of quarterly funding. The mathematic approach is a very manual, unintelligent process: “assists non-technical employees with preparing data, calibrating parameters and determining the optimal algorithms”.
- Chips: high-performance computing at the edge is going to be increasingly important. The cloud can’t do it all, everywhere. But molecular-scale computing is already here.
- Video: Amazon Prime now has 85M subs.
- Cryptocurrency: “Connecting to peers…”; doesn’t cryptocurrency feel a lot like Napster back in the day? Thoughts on Tokens.
- Health: you go to a vegan restaurant to eat healthy and you get served Seitan. Which, you read later, is pure gluten. So that health thing? Yah…
- Design: I’m a little teapot, dope as hell.
- Japan: population is aging with fewer babies being made. Service bots are the answer. They need a brain + nervous system.
- China: just keeps iterating towards space.
- Business: the US corporate mindset is overwhelmingly to focus on the customer rather than shareholder value or social good.
