Wonder why I say the Singularity is here? No it hasn’t literally begun, but the process directly leading to it is already underway. When you see a chart like this one here http://28oa9i1t08037ue3m1l0i861.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Edge1.png it’s hard to say we haven’t arrived yet.
Whether or not this is your first time hearing of the Singularity, check out this post by Tim Urban http://waitbutwhy.com/2015/01/artificial-intelligence-revolution-1.html

#Zalando   bezog 35 Millionen Euro Zuschüsse aus #Steuergeld  
Es ist ein rasanter Aufstieg, den Zalando hingelegt hat. An der Börse ist der Online-Versandhändler emporgeschossen. Nur fünf Jahre nach seiner Gründung erzielt das Unternehmen inzwischen 2,2 Milliarden Euro Umsatz. Zahlen, die für eine beispiellose Erfolgsstory stehen. Zahlen, die jedoch auch eine Wahrheit vergessen lassen. Die Wahrheit, dass sich Zalando seinen Aufstieg kräftig bezahlen ließ – vom Steuerzahler.
