SXSW · How to Make Moonshots
Astro Teller, Backchannel
Closing keynote, given by Astro Teller, Captain of Moonshots, Google[x]: „The faster you can get your ideas in contact with the real world, the faster you can discover what is broken with your idea. Seeking out contact with the real world means hearing and seeing things you don’t want to hear and see — because they’re discouraging and disheartening when you’re pouring your all into something.“

SXSW · Bruce Sterling Closing Talk
South by Southwest Interactive, Soundcloud
Komplett gut, wenn es sein muss, kann man erst bei 8:40 einsteigen. Später dann: „The Internet of Things is about things, physical things that are in real cities. They’re under legislation, they’re in town, they’re in counties, they’re in states, they’re in nations. They’re very heavily policed. They’re not Internet objects, they belong to real territories. So as you create an Internet of Things you start importing these legal structures.“

The Invention of the Perfect Cup of Coffee
Steven Levy, Backchannel
Ein Gespräch mit dem Erfinder der AeroPress, Alan Adler: „I began just by tasting the coffee, and I found that 175 degree water made the best-tasting coffee with a pour over, which is well below boiling. But I was troubled by the fact that the drip-through took about four or five minutes. I believe that if lower temperature makes the coffee sweeter, a shorter time will as well.“

That Way We’re All Writing Now
Clive Thompson, The Message
„You’ve likely seen this style of writing all over the place — on Tumblr, Twitter, Snapchat, Yik Yak, or anywhere that people communicate in writing. (…) What’s going on with it? How does it work? Why do people employ it so frequently? It turns out there are four big reasons why.“

Der Fall Jung und die Empörung über die Empörung
Patrick Gensing, Publikative.org
„So wie Jung & Naiv nicht sonderlich kritisch ist, verhält es sich auch mit Jungs Posting: ‚Herrenwitze‘ sind im schlechtesten Sinne stinknormal. Was sich verändert hat: Solche Sprüche bleiben nicht mehr ohne Widerspruch. Die Kritik wird dann aber gerne als ‚Shitstorm‘ bezeichnet, wodurch die Reaktionen disqualifiziert und unterschiedliche Argumente eingeebnet werden.“
