Robin Good's curator insight, January 12, 2013 7:13 PM


Hamish McKenzie, on PandoDaily, paints a possible future for "an end-to-end reader experience that centralizes, simplifies, and at the same time diversifies the consumption of longform journalism, while offering deep social features that increase readership and bring magazines up to speed with the digital era."


From the original article: "The first problem is that there is an app for each magazine.


To subscribe to the New Yorker, Wired, Vanity Fair, GQ, The Atlantic, Details, New York, and Time, you’ve got to have seven different apps, many of which are bloated. Some issues of Wired, for example, have weighed in at 500MB each. And what do you get inside? Aside from the occasional animation, or supplementary audio and video, they’re basically just digital facsimiles of the paper product. Worse – you can only get the stories if you get the whole magazine.


So here’s an idea for how to do it better and make money from it.


Break up the bundle.


Present stories on an individual basis. Do to the magazine what iTunes did to the album, but do it with a Spotify model. And put it all into one app.


In short: build a platform not for magazines, but for magazine stories.

Here’s how it works. You have an app called something like Mag Reader. When you open Mag Reader, it shows you a list of the latest works from your favorite publications, as well as ones that align with your interests, or the stories currently most talked about on social media."


Unbundling content is very likely the way of the future.


Vauable analysis. Interesting vision. 7/10

The Adaptive Cycle Diagram

All complex organizations have a life cycle. They are born, they grow, they age, and they die. Often, a new version of the old system is reborn and goes through the life cycle again.

 

The model that has proven most useful to me in considering how to change these complex systems is the Adaptive Cycle (pictured above; for more versions of the model see Variations on Adaptive Cycle Model), also called the Panarchy Model. The adaptive cycle, slightly modified, is a useful  template for understanding how the purpose of an organization and its use of resources change throughout its life cycle.

Leadership Consultant Jim Shipley über Erkenntnisse der Neurowissenschaft und ihre Bedeutung für Führung. Interessante Punkte:1: Gedanken, Gefühle und Bewusstsein entspringen alle demselben neuronalen Mechanismus – eine Trennung von emotionalen und rationalen Aspekten der Führung macht daher wenig Sinn.2: Es gibt neben dem Erfahrungs-Selbst auch ein hochsubjektives Erinnerungs-Selbst, das Objektivität vortäuscht  – Führungskräfte können demnach zu besseren, holistischeren Entscheidungen gelangen, wenn sie lernen, mehr im Jetzt zu sein und nicht so sehr aus ihrer Erinnerung heraus zu interpretieren. Netter Text, allerdings predigt er auch die fragwürdige These von der unterschiedlichen Ausrichtung der linken und der rechten Gehirnhälfte.
