After the Gold Rush: Rolls-Royce Ready to Embrace Minimalism

We’ve covered how mainstream automakers rose to the coronavirus challenge ad nauseum, but what about companies whose customers dream of rich mahogany and yachting off Cannes all night? Well, just like a Silicon Valley tech mogul, Rolls-Royce spent these past few months reflecting, peering deep within its soul, all to learn how to become a […] The post After the Gold Rush: Rolls-Royce Ready to Embrace Minimalism appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

When Driving Becomes Just Data

Driverless cars are catnip for the Silicon Valley monopolists. The average commute is dead space because their target is too busy driving to take in advertising or interact with any information-gathering devices. But what if the car becomes one of those devices? – New Statesman

Ammunition and Gantri collaborate over a series of 3D-Printed lights

SF-based design studio Ammunition Group is adding Gantri to its list of collaborators/clients, as the two companies get together to launch a series of lights designed for the Gantri platform.

Radha Mistry's Job at Autodesk is to Explore and Provoke Possible Futures

For this year's Core77 Design Awards, we're conducting in-depth interviews with some of our 2020 jury captains to get in a glimpse into their creative minds and to hear more about what they'll be looking for in this year's awards submissions. You could say the general purpose of an organization's collective body is to ask the question, "what's next?" In other words, any one person's job at a company is to help contribute to moving it forward and make it a success. But not everyone can say they...

Is resurrecting Google’s BookBot the need of the hour?

Everyone in Silicon Valley is trying to design something straight out of the future. We treat science and technology as the end all be all of our issues and rightfully so, but here is an unpopular opinion – do we REALLY need technology in every aspect of our lives to make it better? A decade ago, robots doing all our tasks were just a thing of movies and today we don’t go a day without interacting with a robot – think about it, even if you call a place there is a 99% chance an automated voice ...

frog's Most Surprising Tech Trend Predictions for 2020

Last week frog dropped its annual Tech Trends report, this time looking at what awaits us in 2020 and where the end of the “twenty-tens” leaves us. There are a number of predictions within the report pointing to both an energetic optimism for future innovations and the darker consequences of our technological triumphs over the past ten years alone. After all, we’ve seen events like the 3D printing revolution that delivered professional quality fabrication to a consumer level at dropping price p...

What Passes For A Soul (Or Conscience) In Silicon Valley

What happens after you admit you might have ruined the internet, or helped elect a lunatic, or undercut Western democracy? I suppose that, like with any confession, you feel relief. Nothing is worse than keeping a secret. Then, to borrow a cliché, you might take some time to work on yourself. Unburdened, perhaps, by their No Good Very Bad Election Year, the elite of Silicon Valley have discovered a new depth of self-reflection that they didn’t realized they possessed—and a new opportunit...

Improv Comedy (Live and Otherwise) Examined on Pretty Much Pop: A Culture Podcast #20   What role does improv comedy play in popular culture? It shows up in the work of certain film directors (like Christopher Guest, Adam McKay, and Robert Altman) and has surfaced in some of the TV work of Larry David, Robin Williams, et al. But only in the rare case of a show like Whose Line Is It Anyway? is the presence of improvisation obvious. So is this art form doomed to live on the fri...

Pinterest’s Audience Algorithm Is Awesome. Now It Has To Change

The company’s leaders say they want to map a different route to success in Silicon Valley, one that’s less meteoric and more humane. But in its first year as a public company, it faces a pivotal challenge: How to grow beyond a user base that has historically skewed toward white, suburban women without alienating loyalists, stereotyping newcomers, or potentially allowing for the spread of misinformation and radicalization. – Medium

What The Wild Success Of Silicon Valley Says About The American Success Story

The question of fixing Silicon Valley is inseparable from the question of fixing the system of postwar American capitalism, of which it is perhaps the purest expression. Some believe that the problems we see are bugs that might be fixed with a patch. Others think the code is so bad at its core that a radical rewrite is the only answer. – The Nation

Silicon Valley’s Miracle Tech Was Supposed To Make The World A Better Place. What Happened?

These magical machines were supposed to provide a solution to the economic and political problems of the late twentieth century, a way to transcend and break free of the confining aspects of postwar capitalism. This was a feint, a way of imagining a miracle fix to tensions and conflicts that had no easy resolution. Computers, Margaret O’Mara suggests, have long been metaphors as much as machines. – The New Republic

The Tech Revolution Was Supposed To Be Fun. So What Happened?

For many years, Silicon Valley and the machines that came out of it were presented as personally, economically, and socially transformative, agents of revolution at both the level of the individual and the whole social order. They were democratizing, uncontrolled, anarchic, and new. Most of all, they were supposed to be fun—to open up a space of play and freedom. How is it, then, that just a few decades in, we find ourselves trapped in a dreary spectacle that seems to replicate the old p...

Sure, You Can Play That New Movie At Your Own House – For Three Thousand Dollars

Where previous attempts to serve the one percent by showing new movies to them for a high price, a new venture may work because the founders have decades-long relationships in the industry – they’re not some random kids from Silicon Valley. One says, “We are a niche offering — I’m too old for disruption — but even if a studio makes $25 million to $50 million annually from us, that’s found money.” – The New York Times

Appodeal Goes Mondrianesque for their New Offices in Minsk

Thanks to giants like Google and Apple, Silicon Valley companies have a reputation for having some of the coolest offices in the world, complete with nifty in-house amenities like games rooms, fitness centres and relaxation zones that upend conventional office spaces. But contrary to popular belief, it’s not just Silicon Valley where the workplace is being re-invented.

These Educators Are Using Hip Hop to Change Silicon Valley's Representation Problem

CodeScty uses hip hop to teach computational thinking. "Say your ABCs," Armando Somoza says. "It's usually in song form, right? Across countries and languages, we've seen the power in this mnemonic device, the power of call and response, the power of communal, creative learning experiences." Somoza and his cofounder Chenits Pettigrew have been artists and educators for nearly 20 years, and have long wondered why technology training programs so often ignore the simple structure that informs so ma...

Apple’s Plans To Compete In Hollywood Are Becoming Clearer

Apple didn’t need stars before, but it needs them now. Although the company was the first publicly traded American firm to be valued above $1 trillion, its most recent earnings report showed flat profits and falling revenue. So the plan now is not only to sell devices, but to fill them with content. That has led the company into the alien territory of Hollywood, where local customs can clash with Silicon Valley folkways. – The New York Times

An ambient-music-playing ambient light

Now this is a purely personal opinion so don’t @ me, but when I think of a good smart-light or a good smart-speaker, I’m thinking of a product that’s ingenious and creative, not internet-connected. I personally think Alexa-enabled speakers are great, but they’re not something I’d own. I don’t need myself a speaker or a camera in my house that spies on every single thing I do or say in the interest of ‘internet connectivity’ and convenience. I’m saying, if I want to play a song, I’ll play a son...
