Angry Bear » Private ownership of public infrastructure… A doom of inequality

As private money begins to own infrastructure as opposed to paying taxes, so that the public owns it, the American economy we once knew will be gone. Inequality will become so entrenched, that it will be very hard to reverse the process. Once private companies own a greater percentage of infrastructure, we will see laws passed to protect them. We will see subsidies when needed. We will see costs rise for using public infrastructure.

New roles for technology: Rise of the robots | The Economist

One is that robotics R&D is getting easier. New shared standards make good ideas easily portable from one robot platform to another. And accumulated know-how means that building such platforms is getting a lot cheaper. A robot like Rethink Robotics’s Baxter, with two arms and a remarkably easy, intuitive programming interface, would have been barely conceivable ten years ago. Now you can buy one for $25,000.

Why Buffett Doesn’t Invest In Technology – Business Insider

The key to investing is not assessing how much an industry is going to affect society, or how much it will grow, but rather determining the competitive advantage of any given company and, above all, the durability of that advantage.

Trigger Warnings Trigger Me – The Conversation – Blogs – The Chronicle of Higher Education

Trigger warnings are a very dangerous form of censorship because they’re done in the name of civility. Learning is painful. It’s often ugly and traumatic. How different my life would be if I hadn’t read Crime and Punishment because it’s misogynist and violent. How terrible my teaching would be if I hadn’t spent years researching spectacle lynchings and eugenics and freak shows in order to teach courses on race and American culture.

The Sweet Irony Of Popcorn Time | TechCrunch

But it strikes me that this is exactly the kind of thing that will need to happen for the movie industry to come to its senses. There will be no major shakeup of the back-room deals (though powerful people like Apple’s Eddy Cue have been at it for years). Instead, someone will find a way to make those deals obsolete entirely.

Bank profits hit new high in 2013 | Investigative Reporting Workshop

It’s hardly “news” at this point to report that the nation’s banks have recovered strongly from the financial crisis, but the results for last year provided even more evidence:

·       Profits for the year hit $154.7 billion, according to reports filed with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. That is the highest level ever.

Revolutionaries add new social media networks to tech toolkit

When we think about the Arab spring, what people were really focusing on were Facebook and Twitter.Now, those tools are still incredibly important, and you saw them being used to great effect in Kiev and elsewhere.

But now, at the same token, activists understand that these social media tools can also be used as a weapon against them.And they are very concerned about a surveillance state and having their own activities monitored.

7 charts on why Canada’s middle class is doing so poorly

By looking at individual rather than family income, we see that wage gains from this period were largely thanks to rising commodity prices and increasing number of women entering the labour force. These are not trends we can expect to continue indefinitely.  Furthermore, these trends served to mask slow Canadian productivity growth.

NekNominations Are What This Generation Has Instead of Punk or Rave | VICE United Kingdom

But due to a variety of factors – ranging from the post-iPod acceptance of all music, to rising shop rents that equal a monopoly of big chains and their uniform stock – young people feel they have very little ownership over anything. In consensus, coalition, resolutely capitalist Britain, youth subcultures are processed in the same way as veal. They’re snapped up by trend forecasters before they’ve had a chance to grow, locked in a dark room, sold to the high-street butcher and flogged back to the kids at inflated prices.
