It Will Change Everything…

The bitcoin and the ethereum: via Dilbert Yup, it’s going to change everything! Remember… we grossly underestimate the long-term effects while overestimating the short-term: Amara’s Law Amara’s Law is especially applicable in the blockchain and decentralized space because we’ve seen it in near real-time! The excessive and irrational exuberance where folks believe that blockchain is going to change the world… tomorrow… and when it doesn’t it suddenly drops out of ...

Marketing and the Tension Between Contrarianism and Traditionalism

I started and stopped this post four times as I tried to find the right way to open. Eventually I got tired of searching and figured it was easiest to just jump off the note I wrote to myself in Google Keep after the idea popped into my head: That might not make so much sense (yet), but like any good note it captured enough of the concept that I remembered what I was thinking when I wrote it. I jotted it down as I was prepping for a webinar I did last week offering up some predictions for marke...

Bringing in the Sheaves: Harvest Table Inspiration from Caro of Somerset

Holiday table forecast: botanical clouds ahead. Suspended like rustic chandeliers, artful bundles of grass have been cropping up all over Instagrammed party spreads from Berlin and Amsterdam. This season we’re taking inspiration from a Nordic supper staged by Caro, Natalie Jones’s design shop, a favorite Remodelista pilgrimage stop in the town of Bruton, in Somerset, England. Jones collaborated with stylist Hana Snow on the natural party decorations. Breath in: the room is subtly perfumed with s...

Happening Without Us

I love this so much: In fact, Microsoft would never have happened without Paul. In December 1974, he and I were both living in the Boston area—he was working, and I was going to college. One day he came and got me, insisting that I rush over to a nearby newsstand with him. When we arrived, he showed me the cover of the January issue of Popular Electronics. It featured a new computer called the Altair 8800, which ran on a powerful new chip. Paul looked at me and said: “This is happening withou...

Hiring: Community & Social Media Manager

I don’t do this often, but, I may start doing it more because my little project that could… is growing up a bit (not too much and not too fast… maybe…). I’m looking to hire our very first Social Media and Community Manager. It’s a hybrid-role that’s going to be a huge part of our early-stage team! So, outside of the outlined responsibilities you’ll be a huge part of building the overall company as well, delivering results around process, programming, people, and production… pretty much everyt...

‘Get Shorty’: Season 2 Teaser And Synopsis Released

Epix has released its first-ever promo clip for Season 2 of “Get Shorty.” The 27-second video teaser is something of a fake-out as it starts as a red-carpet photo op that suddenly transforms into a police lineup. Much to Miles (Chris O’Dowd), Rick (Ray Romano), Louis (Sean Bridgers), and Amara’s (Lidio Porto) surprise, those who are telling them to “move to the left” and “move to the right” aren’t professional event photographers, but rather members of the police.

‘Get Shorty’ Season 2 Spoilers: EP Teases What’s Next For Rick Moreweather

Rick struggles with his secret life as an FBI informant in Season 2 of Expix’s “Get Shorty.” In an interview with TVInsider, executive producer Davey Holmes said that Rick’s (Ray Romano) decision to aid the FBI’s investigation into the criminal organization of his lover Amara (Lidia Porto) puts him in a very restless situation. “Sleeping with Amara while working with the Feds has him in a perpetual state of high anxiety,” Holmes said of Rick.

Add subtitles to your web videos with Amara

Think of a foreign-language movie or song that you'd like to understand more deeply. Imagine being able to watch the movie at an airport with the sound muted to avoid interference with announcements. Wouldn't a subtitle improve your viewing experience (and your tiring layover)?read more

Amara’s Law

I can’t stop thinking about Roy Amara’s adage about forecasting future technology: We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run. This couldn’t be more true in bitcoin and blockchain. The hype cycle is real and most of the projects that are coming up online will not be here in 12-18 months. Why? Because folks overestimate the effect (i.e. monetization potential, business opportunity, getting rich af…) and simply do not have th...

‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Spoiler Review: The Saturday Morning Cartoon Blockbuster Warm-Up We Need

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Steven S. DeKnight’s Pacific Rim Uprising.) When it was announced that Guillermo del Toro wouldn’t be coming back for a sequel to his 2013 sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim, fans of the original movie were understandably worried. Sure, the idea of giant monsters called kaiju battling against giant pilot-controlled robots sounds l...

The Connected Museum of 2040

I hope you've had a chance to read your print copy of Museum 2040, or to download a digital copy. If you’re a little confused about why the magazine is set in the future, read my introduction to this special issue. As I noted in that post, one of the hardest things to project is the rate of adoption of a given technology. (Roy Amara at the Institute of the Future encapsulated this truth in Amara’s Law, which states that we tend to overestimate the impact of new technology in the short term, und...

Meet The Love & Hip Hop Star That's Sparking A Heated Conversation About Race

Since the very first episode of Love & Hip Hop 's latest franchise edition in Miami in January, Amara La Negra has clearly been the breakout star.

She talks quickly and loudly, using her hands to emphasize her points (traits we joke that many Latinas share), and has the kind of magnetic energy that's made for television. And on the sh...
