The map that shows you how prosperity is changing

The map that shows you how prosperity is changing | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
A picture of global prosperity from 1950 to 2015.
nukem777's insight:
"Three leading economists and academics all agreed that we need a new way to measure growth. As MIT professor Erik Brynjolfsson argued, the man behind the concept, Simon Kuznets “understood that GDP is not a welfare measure, it is not a measure of how well we are all doing. It counts the things that we’re buying and selling, but it’s quite possible for GDP to go in the opposite direction of welfare.”"

Google's winning card against Europe: time

When a verdict is reached, any Android charges could be obsolete.
nukem777's insight:
"The Socrates-style question surrounding the European Commission’s new case against Google’s Android operating system is not whether the company abused its power over mobile devices, but whether people will even be using smartphones and apps in five years."

Hopefully not, should be to voice commands on any chip...no more keyboards, no more devices...sweet, how it should be...real question is who's going to make money off that? The real trend is toward no cost computing.

nukem777's insight:
This is not a world requiring or expected to be driven by mobile apps. Developments in artificial intelligence, deep learning, analytics algorithms and the like instead point to a more pervasive and yet more subtle type of software that more easily adapts to us rather than the other way around.
