Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed

'The culture of the eight-hour workday is big business’ most powerful tool for keeping people in this same dissatisfied state where the answer to every problem is to buy something.'

and

'...the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.

Western economies, particularly that of the United States, have been built in a very calculated manner on gratification, addiction, and unnecessary spending. We spend to cheer ourselves up, to reward ourselves, to celebrate, to fix problems, to elevate our status, and to alleviate boredom.'

Cities in America are finding useful ways of handling a torrent of data. One approach is to give them to the public. For example, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago are or soon will be sharing the grades that health inspectors give to restaurants with an online restaurant directory http://econ.st/1817mEK

You are not Steve Jobs

A young CEO storms though his start-up, a tiny Godzilla, crushing the feelings of his staff like so many Japanese paper maché buildings. He rubs his forehead in meetings and loudly ponders why no one is as smart as he is. No ideas are to be considered for the product unless he initiated them. He is trying his damnedest to be just like his recently departed hero — Mr. Steve Jobs.

Looks promising
 
My first Google Glass photos and videos

As a photographer I'm already in love with Google Glass. It lets you capture images without even touching. All you need to do is turn on the glass by looking upward. Then, when it comes on you say "OK Glass, take a picture." Then it takes a picture within a second. Painless and because they are always ready to go I find I'm capturing moments and images that I just wouldn't before.

Another cool thing? No one poses for photos anymore! This is magic and transformative for a photographer. 

Look at how my son treats me while I was videoing him. Far more natural than I would have gotten if I had pulled out a smartphone and started recording him. If I did that he'd want to see his image on the screen. 

He also would want to pose for the camera. 

This is a REALLY BIG DEAL for photography and videography.

A not so camera shy Goat. I shot this picture in the evening and there was heavy back lighting but these days cameras are so advanced to even capture so much from the shadows.

Tictail, a ten-month-old Swedish start-up, aims to radically simplify the process for businesses to go online. It takes no more than a few minutes before a new virtual store is ready to accept orders. Owners only need to follow a few simple steps, link their shop to a PayPal account, and set a price for their items http://econ.st/12PPJKI
