To start with, the very abundance of digital data exacerbates the most fundamental constraint on information commerce—the limits of human comprehension.The Information Economy
Software costs nothing to copy, but someone still has to create it. The costs of development may approach zero as copies approach infinity, but there is still a very-non-zero amount of time and capital needed for activation energy.Software scarcity
When you communicate on mass media, whether it’s a 30 second spot on prime-time TV, a press ad in a National newspaper, or a 6 sheet in a city centre, you will reach a large number of those who are in your target market.

Very often, this new behavior involves breaking the rules. Then, a winning strategy for founders is to build products that make these new models more accessible to a wider audience.The Ownership Economy: Crypto & The Next Frontier of Consumer Software
On the other hand, life isn’t always hellish. We experience love, friendship, adventure and heartbreaking beauty. Could all this really come from random collisions of particles?
This is also where it pays to remember that your goal is not always to make the other person feel as comfortable as possible.
The value of the web is not embodied in its technology, so much as in the network of relationships that make up the ecosystem. Ecological networks take a long time to evolve, and can’t just be ported over.
Not all employees are interested in a ‘traditional’ growth plan (working up the ladder). Uncovering where employees want to develop, whether it’s taking on more responsibilities or moving into a different role, helps managers better create career development paths to get them there.
If you still feel shame about an incorrect or poorly perceived contribution to a team meeting, it is time to stop dwelling on it. The remark might be holding you back, but it is likely that everyone else forgot about it months ago.
The news didn’t make your opinions more rational, it just made you more confident you were right. Rarely do we read things we disagree with. It’s much easier to just put our walls up and tune out.

In a way, the biggest advantage I had was not knowing anything. Starting with a “blank slate” approach was extremely valuable, as many prior conceptions of how a virus operates did not necessarily apply in the case of this novel coronavirus.
What I believe has served me well is something that’s often overlooked when you think about being the “best” – being easy to work with.
A snapshot of someone’s life on Instagram tells you nothing about that person’s actual life. That’s how we should treat all those things: As pure entertainment, not as inspiration for life.
Usually if I learned a concept a long time ago, it means that I’ve lost touch with what it’s like to learn it for the first time today. So running an explanation by a few people who don’t already know the concept helps to catch incorrect assumptions I’ve made.
Step one is to create space between emotion and action. It’s OK to have fear and trust issues. But it’s not OK to let them hold you back.
People who practice self-compassion treat themselves with kindness, care, and concern in the face of negative experiences.
But they often lie; elite opinion often overrules expert opinion, especially on topics with strong moral colors. And elites are selected far more for prestige than expertise.
