Uber and the Coming Disruption of Finance – Bloomberg View

In analytical terms, Uber is a growing P2P (peer-to-peer) platform that is dismantling barriers to entry in a comprehensive way — so much so that even the old-style limousine services and taxis are starting to sign up with Uber as a means of supplementing their traditional business.

What Role Does Technology Play in Record Levels of Income Inequality? | MIT Technology Review

Inequality in education is not only hurting the chances of poor children to get ahead, says David Grusky. It is also affecting the supply of high-skill labor. By stifling opportunities for countless talented individuals, it artificially restricts the potential pool of those with technological expertise. As a result, Grusky says, “we overpay for high-skill workers,” which is damaging to the economy.

Grimly Letting Go of the Old Story « how to save the world

While I believe most of these trends and emergences are complex collective responses to changing realities, and either well-intentioned or unconscious (i.e. without malicious intent), taken together they would seem to evince a broad, intuitive shift in our collective gestalt, our way of coping with the world. They reveal more than anything, I think, a giving up of the belief in fairness, justice, controllability, understandability and consensus as means of “making sense” or taking action reliably to achieve desired objectives in the current reality of how things work. They reveal both the incapacity of our now massively-overgrown, fragile and unwieldy systems to function sustainably or effectively, and the incapacity of ourselves and our broken communities to function effectively within their purview.

The Real Reason the Poor Go Without Bank Accounts – CityLab

At commercial banks, the account itself often maintains the relationship between the customer and the institution. I might not be satisfied with my bank, but it’s an enormous inconvenience to switch everything over to a new one, and there is no guarantee any other bank will be more efficient or better.

Software Is Eating the World, and It Could Eat Your Business | CIO

All deployment is automatic. Etsy has built an IRC-based communication system connected to its source code management system that, when triggered, deploys one or more code check-ins to the production Etsy system. This isn’t, however, a matter of an individual developer checking in code and pressing a button to deploy code into production. A designated operations person decides what to deploy and when; when that individual triggers the deployment, Etsy backend systems automatically move code into the production system. No humans need to take any action.

Decentralized information networks and the transcendence of space-time

Decentralize – Web 3.0 News & Opinions | Decentralized information networks and the transcendence of space-time. Or: Why things are about to get weird very soon.

It might sound pathologically optimistic, if not straight out insane, but this new ability we are developing – to create autonomous complexes made out of information that exist in some kind of digital hyperspace and that have the ability to execute themselves and self-regulate while abiding nowhere and everywhere at once, with no servers or strings attached, might not just revolutionize governance and modes of production, but might very well transform our very understanding of nature itself.

Why So Many Hate Bitcoin | Bit Blogger

The very existence of bitcoin challenges their values. It’s not a coincidence that so much of the hating comes from the statists, socialists and Keynesians. Bitcoin itself challenges not just their identity, but their values and what they’ve built their very lives upon. It’s no wonder it causes so much anger. Either how you’ve lived and believed is wrong or bitcoin is wrong. Which path do you think most people take when their identity is challenged?
