The Information Age Is Over. Welcome to the Infrastructure Age.

The Information Age Is Over. Welcome to the Infrastructure Age. | VPRO Tegenlicht | Scoop.it
Nobody wants to say it outright, but the Apple Watch sucks. So do most smartwatches. Every time I use my beautiful Moto 360, its lack of functionality makes me despair. But the problem isn’t our gadgets. It’s that the future of consumer tech isn’t going to come from information devices. It’s going to come from infrastructure.

The Techies Who Are Hacking Education by Homeschooling Their Kids | WIRED | VPRO Tegenlicht | Scoop.it
The Cook family are not just homeschoolers but unschoolers. They don’t prefer homeschooling simply because they find most schools too test-obsessed or underfunded or otherwise ineffective. They believe that the very philosophical underpinnings of modern education are flawed.

The Pro Dumpster Diver Who's Making Thousands Off America's Biggest Retailers | WIRED

The Pro Dumpster Diver Who's Making Thousands Off America's Biggest Retailers | WIRED | VPRO Tegenlicht | Scoop.it
Matt Malone doesn’t mind being called a professional dumpster diver. He tells me this a little after 2 am on the morning of July 7 as we cruise the trash receptacles behind the stores of a shopping center just off the Capital of Texas Highway in Austin. Given the image that conjures, though, it’s worth pointing out that Malone has a pretty good day job, earning a six-figure salary as a security specialist for Slait Consulting. He is also founder of Assero Security, a startup that he says has recently been offered seed money by not one but two separate investors. Nevertheless, the 37-year-old Malone does spend a good many of his off-hours digging through the trash. And the fact is, he earns a sizable amount of money from this activity—more per hour than he makes at his Slait job.
