Out With the Old? Blockchain Requires a New Regulatory Approach | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
The internet is once more in a period of transition.

The "cloud era" that served consumers and firms so well so far, little by little, gives its place to the "era of decentralization," or the era wherein the end-users of computers will not only own and manage their hardware in a decentralized way, but also own and manage their own data in a decentralized way.

Staying Human-Centered in a Technology-Focused World

Staying Human-Centered in a Technology-Focused World | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When Procter & Gamble was looking for ways to innovate and grow its business in the late 1990s, it found the answers not in technology but in human behavior. P&G started by watching how everyday people cleaned their floors, and noticed that a lot of effort was put into cleaning the mop itself, an unwieldy and often messy contraption. The solution? A simpler tool than the original—one that solved an everyday problem in a different way: the Swiffer.

There’s a Gender Gap in Internet Usage. Closing It Would Open Up Opportunities for Everyone

There’s a Gender Gap in Internet Usage. Closing It Would Open Up Opportunities for Everyone | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
We have all heard about a gap when it comes to participation of women in the tech industry. Facebook, Google, and Apple have 17%, 19% and 23% women in their technology staffs, respectively. Multiple surveys, such as the “The Elephant in the Valley,” have documented systematic discrimination against women. And there’s a continuous barrage of news stories regarding the challenges that women face across a raft of iconic Silicon Valley firms. No more than a quarter of U.S. computing and mathematical jobs are held by women, consistent with the data that around 26% of the STEM workforce in developed countries is female. In developing countries, those differences are even greater.

Communication and repetition are vital for innovation

I was working out this morning before work and as usual, watching the breaking news.  At 7am there are a range of news choices, and strangely each network seems to have the exact same advertisements on during the breaks.  As I was working out I realized that I knew the side effects of several medications that I don't need and don't take.
