    I loved this article as it connects the dot of his the behavior of the young affluent will continue to cause a shift in traditional business models. Why? Because instead of companies forcing their business models on customers, the lifestyles and preferences will dictate the business models...as it truly should have been in the first place.

  • These articles always focus on 26 and under demographic when everyday more and more the 30+ years old demographic is growing in percentage of overall users. I’d love for the writers to seek out opinions of changes on platforms of diverse demographics both from the user perspective and the mental health

    These articles always focus on 26 and under demographic when everyday more and more the 30+ years old demographic is growing in percentage of overall users. I’d love for the writers to seek out opinions of changes on platforms of diverse demographics both from the user perspective and the mental health professionals weighing in. That would make the articles so much more informative and well rounded!

  • Only in our modern times are we correlating freedom of speech with hate speech towards another person. They are not the same thing. Freedom of speech is to protect ideas and dialogue. Hate speech is to attacking individuals based on human characteristics. Again, not the same thing and I don’t know how

    Only in our modern times are we correlating freedom of speech with hate speech towards another person. They are not the same thing. Freedom of speech is to protect ideas and dialogue. Hate speech is to attacking individuals based on human characteristics. Again, not the same thing and I don’t know how the owners/leaders of those sites (knowing they are breeding and giving a platform to racists) can sleep at night. I would not be able to.

  • Points like this makes me think of Taleb’s Black Swan way of thinking: Our world will need coders and programmers (Black Seans), not kids trained to work for an Industrial Age that no longer exists (White Swans).

  • The jobs noted are interesting because what took 50 years to become obsolete in the past are now being made obsolete at a faster rate today due to technology. This is going to put a much larger amount of pressure on the people occupying those jobs to pivot and gain new skills faster because they don’t

    The jobs noted are interesting because what took 50 years to become obsolete in the past are now being made obsolete at a faster rate today due to technology. This is going to put a much larger amount of pressure on the people occupying those jobs to pivot and gain new skills faster because they don’t have 50 years to adjust...they’ll have 5-10 years, at best.

  • Moving from a monetized information model to a productivity model is not without consequences, including the awareness that Google will want to monetize (after they’ve gained your trust of course!) and so monetizing your trust is a default of their productivity model, no matter how they are marketing

    Moving from a monetized information model to a productivity model is not without consequences, including the awareness that Google will want to monetize (after they’ve gained your trust of course!) and so monetizing your trust is a default of their productivity model, no matter how they are marketing it today. I’d be cautious and just stick to their other productivity tools like Google Sheets that requires no privacy sacrifices.

  • What’s interesting to me are the small businesses creating Blue Oceans in balloon sales: they spend resources on creating designer balloons, ship them to you un-inflated, thus making customer responsible for blowing up with helium (the most expensive part). This is right out of the IKEA playbook. PartyCity

    What’s interesting to me are the small businesses creating Blue Oceans in balloon sales: they spend resources on creating designer balloons, ship them to you un-inflated, thus making customer responsible for blowing up with helium (the most expensive part). This is right out of the IKEA playbook. PartyCity balloons are un-interesting (non designer) AND they cost a lot (helium, staff to manage, inventory, carrying costs). Interesting times we live in and more collateral damage to retailers will happen from Blue Oceans changing the supply chain and delivery models.

  • Articles like this is why I’m an Evangelist of Demographics and expanding the information beyond “marketing and sales”. Marketing and sales will always follow numbers but giving demographic access and insights to operational and financial teams will make Influencer activation strategies more effective.

  • This study echoes my own journey towards earning my Economics degree. It took me transferring to a HBCU 3,000 miles from home to stick with Economics after struggling in my freshman year at a majority white, 500 students per class environment.

  • Even though it hasn’t been highlighted as much as other countries, the US has always been a global money stashing haven.
