Found on the Web: The 3 hot trends in Silicon Valley horseshit

  

I am not a fan – at all! – of the Silicon Valley culture that is a big influence in my work domain (actually, scratch that: in our entire life!), but this article points out a lot of beef I have against the start-up/IoT mindset. Interesting read I am sharing.

It was also just one of a whole constellation of companies that now operate under an ingenious model: take some banal product that has been sold forever at low margins, attach the disposable part to a proprietary system that pretends to improve it but really just locks pepole into a particular vendor, add a touch screen manufactured by Chinese tweens, call it “Smart,” and sell it to schlubby dads too indebted to buy a midlife crisis car and too unattractive to have an affair.

My 2017 Online Sources: Web/Tech edition

  

Last week, I was asked at work to share with the team all my current online sources of news in my work field, and I was thinking “Hey, that’s something I could also share on my blog! I never actually shared my sources, could be useful…”. And thus, this list.

For now, I am sharing only my 2017 Web-related sites and newsletters links, but I will also create another one for all my other interests not tech-related.

Enjoy!
