Genome sequencing price, charted against Moore's law curve. Today, you can get your DNA sequenced for $1400 in 2 days. The first human genome sequenced cost 3 Billion dollars and it took 15 years. In the future, it will be possible to screen your blood for DNA damages in a routine annual check up, and to detect cancer in its early stage.

+Visnja Zeljeznjak yes, they all want, they all announce, they all publish articles, and the final result is - nothing. Or at least nothing that non-millionaire can afford. But usually just a lot of cheap advertising and no results.

This insightful article claims that, as we develop more accurate attribution models for measuring advertising, Google's empire might crumble if they don't adapt: "Google is deeply dependent on search during a shift to serendipitous discovery and ads designed to interrupt the user’s attention are being replaced by advertising designed to engage them. Its competitor, Facebook, is on the right side of all these trends."

This important survey concluded that "while using a pop-up form on your website may increase sign-ups, this study suggests that it may also significantly reduce those visitors’ desire to trust or buy your business." I can't stress enough how important trust is today on the internet. I am strongly against popups and I never use them on any of my websites, nor would I advise my clients to use them. Does that hurt the conversion rate? YES. But I bet you if TRUST was a metric you could track precisely in Google Analytics, marketers would finally understand how much trust they're losing with popups.

"Talking about Socialism is a huge luxury, a luxury that was paid for by the successes of capitalism." I rarely post about politics, but when I do... It's the best political article I've read this year. It comes from Garry Kasparov, and it talks about the nature of socialism as compared to capitalism.

My friends with anti-capitalism / pro-socialism tendencies should read this, it really makes you think.

Unlike so many 21st century socialists, Garry actually lived in a socialist country turned totalitarian state, and knows what he's talking about when he writes this:

"While inequality is a huge problem, the best way to increase everyone’s share of pie is to make the pie bigger, not to dismantle the bakery."

"Socialism sounds great in speech soundbites and on Facebook, but please keep it there. In practice, it corrodes not only the economy but the human spirit itself, and the ambition and achievement that made modern capitalism possible and brought billions of people out of poverty."

"The idea that the solution [to inequality] is more government, more regulation, more debt, and less risk is dangerously absurd.”

"A society that relies too heavily on redistributing wealth eventually runs out of wealth to redistribute."

"Even the most socialist of the European countries only became wealthy enough to embrace redistribution after free-market success made them rich." (You've probably read how Norway proclaimed that not a single tree would be cut in their country anymore; only a hugely rich capitalist country can afford to care about the environment like that).

"Innovation requires freedom of thought."

Garry proposes a solution to hugely powerful capitalist companies (if that's the thing we're afraid of). The solution is not socialism, it's anti-trust laws. They fucking work.

I was born in socialist Yugoslavia, and while it was not a totalitarian state, I don't ever want to go back there. I'd rather live in a society where it's important to catch all the Pokemons.

Now excuse me while I go back to work, using hardware and software and jobs created by government-run socialist countries. Not.
Why my rant against the Democratic candidate’s prescription for America went viral.

+Zex Konjina I don't believe it's socialism that changed the USA (this is the country you're referring to). I believe it's 100% capitalism. Smart companies have figured out that if they treat their employees better, that they'll create better output for the company. It's for the love of productivity all this has happened, and productivity is praised everywhere where capitalism thrives.

This is heartbreaking: what the world wants, and how to pay for it using military expenditure. On this link, you'll see annual costs of various global programs for solving the major human need and environmental problems facing humanity. Their combined total cost is approximately 30% of the world's total annual military expenditures.

More data (source: http://www.globalissues.org/article/75/world-military-spending):
- World military expenditure in 2012 is estimated to have reached $1.756 trillion (39% of that is USA)
- This corresponds to 2.5% of world gross domestic product (GDP)

USA spends so much on its military to protect its energy interests in the Middle East. My hypothesis is that reduced demand for oil will reduce USA's military budget. It won't happen overnight.

Therefore, electric vehicles. I'm more and more convinced that the coming EV revolution is the single most important point of success toward the future of abundance.

+Olivier Malinur I agree with everything, public transportation is one of the solutions. However, we have to make public transportation desirable, so that most people prefer using public cars than their own. I believe this will not happen until the world switches to 100% autonomous electric vehicles, owned either by the government, or a private company.

A 1000x YES to this: “Car as a Service: An 'autonomous Uber' (or equivalent) will be 10x cheaper than owning a car. When the density of these vehicles reaches critical mass, you’ll be able to hail a ride in 60 seconds."

Also, VR will make certain travels obsolete, such as traveling for business meetings and for shopping. I already stopped traveling for groceries shopping (there's a highly advanced web shop with everything I need in my city). I can't wait the future when I can buy a summer dress that perfectly suits me, from the comfort of my own home.

I'd be willing to relocate to another country, for good if needed, which will have car as a service in the future.

Imagine not owning anything, and having access to everything you could ever possibly need. That's the future I want to work for. We're living in a wasteful society in which people buy things they use once or twice a year (how many times a year do you go skiing? How much did your skiing gear cost you?) That's why we sometimes struggle financially: our money is locked in owning assets we don't use.

Instead, Imagine "subscribing" to a Universal service which delivers clothes, tools, food, cars, personal aviation for traveling, everything you need - and does so quickly and reliably.

Poverty, and not wealth, is the default state of human civilization. Poverty exists because future is not well distributed yet. Technology and science are our best bet for that future.
In the future you will own nothing and have access to everything

'I subscribe to several food lines. I get fresh produce directly from a farmer nearby ...'

Not answered: where does the farmer live? The article allows for a flexibility of life choices, but so too does the governing 'whatever it will be'. It has to happen naturally through personal choice.

Introduction
★ I'm a writer  

I wrote a business book called Recurring Revenue For Web Agencies. It helps web professionals skip months of indecision, avoid common mistakes and build profitable recurring revenue services in the fastest way possible.

I'm writing a weekly newsletter about the business of website development for Simpfinity. Articles I publish there I don't publish anywhere else, so subscribe. It's free and the readers love it. 

★ I'm an entrepreneur  

I have spent 12 years acquiring experience. I will spend the next 12 sharing it through my books, articles and the products my company makes.

Now I work on Simpfinity: a sales proposal + project management + client support web application for web agencies. My company developed Simpfinity in 2010 for internal purposes and my team is currently working on releasing it as an all-in-one software product for everyone to use. Follow our Google+ page and subscribe to Simpfinity email newsletter.

I'm passionate about building my own expertise in website architecture, web usability, conversion rate optimization, sales, lead generation, writing, copywriting and digital marketing in general. The Internet is in my DNA.

I always loved witches and witch stories, and when I heard that there was an "in real life" game available in Zagreb related to witches, it was a no brainer to go there and see for myself. Loved, loved the atmosphere, the puzzles, the interior, everything. I've never been to an escape room before, now I hope for more stories to play.
