Another attempt at ruling out personal responsibility and self decision making... can we get back to real thinking now?
You know what, on second thought- why did you say that?
Of course, but the article doesn't attempt that (am author)
Someone reverse this.
Did that. The result isn't what you'd expect - it doesn't follow Newtonian principles (action -> reaction). Seems like the gif is real, or it's been tampered with so that it seems real. Honestly, I think it's a mash-up of reversed and normal footage.
Here are some of our takeaways (taken from recode):
Global smartphone growth is slowing: Smartphone shipments grew 3 percent year over year last year, versus 10 percent the year before. This is in addition to continued slowing internet growth, which Meeker discussed last year.
Voice is beginning to replace typing in online queries. Twenty percent of mobile queries were made via voice in 2016, while accuracy is now about 95 percent.
In 10 years, Netflix went from 0 to more than 30 percent of home entertainment revenue in the U.S. This is happening while TV viewership continues to decline.
Entrepreneurs are often fans of gaming, Meeker said, quoting Elon Musk, Reid Hoffman and Mark Zuckerberg. Global interactive gaming is becoming mainstream, with 2.6 billion gamers in 2017 versus 100 million in 1995. Global gaming revenue is estimated to be around $100 billion in 2016, and China is now the top market for interactive gaming.
China remains a fascinating market, with huge growth in mobile services and payments and services like on-demand bike sharing.
While internet growth is slowing globally, that’s not the case in India, the fastest growing large economy. The number of internet users in India grew more than 28 percent in 2016. That’s only 27 percent online penetration, which means there’s lots of room for internet usership to grow. Mobile internet usage is growing as the cost of bandwidth declines.
In the U.S. in 2016, 60 percent of the most highly valued tech companies were founded by first- or second-generation Americans and are responsible for 1.5 million employees. Those companies include tech titans Apple, Alphabet, Amazon and Facebook.
Healthcare: Wearables are gaining adoption with about 25 percent of Americans owning one, up 12 percent from 2016. Leading tech brands are well-positioned in the digital health market, with 60 percent of consumers willing to share their health data with the likes of Google in 2016.
Did you know that there are known locations to have bicycle traffic jams. I`m just imagining someone taking a car to work in order not to be stuck in a bicycle traffic jam every goddamn day.
Sounds wonderful to me. I'd rather be in a traffic jam with bikes than one with cars - also imagine road rage manifests itself in a much more polite way
That's interesting, I would have thought summer would be the most popular time to get married.
Though I guess it helps that Columbus day is also dia de la Hispanidad/raza (for us Latinos) so I guess if you're having a big party anyway, may as well chuck in a marriage in there :D
I like where you're going with this
