Munich – June 17, 2017 

Do you check the same sites over and over again pretty much each day for news? Do you get bored every now and then by the ever repeating style of most news sites? Are you in business and looking for inspiration? Do you need compelling charts for your presentations?

Check out – digital, highly informative and creative with a fresh look and feel. „Quartz is a digitally native news outlet, born in 2012, for business people in the new global economy. We publish bracingly creative and intelligent journalism with a broad worldview, built primarily for the devices closest at hand: tablets and mobile phones.“

Quartz developed an interesting app that acts like an SMS conversation, suggesting different news and it looks like this at the very beginning after installing the app:

And if you’re looking for charts: calls itself „The new home for charts and data, powered by Quartz.“
The following chart is taken from the article The internet has been quietly rewired, and video is the reason why

Paradox – wie es Wikipedia beschreibt:

Ein Paradox(on) (auch Paradoxie, Plural Paradoxien oder Paradoxa; von altgriechisch παράδοξον, von παράpara ‚neben‘, ‚außer‘, ‚daran vorbei‘ und δόξαdoxa ‚Meinung‘, ‚Ansicht‘) ist eine Aussage, die scheinbar[1] oder tatsächlich einen unauflösbaren Widerspruch enthält.

Das „daran vorbei“ trifft es hier in diesem Zusammenhang am besten. Am Sinn und Zweck vorbei. Bei der GEMA handelt es sich – leider – auch tatsächlich um einen „unauflösbaren Widerspruch„.

Was ist auf dem Screenshot los? Fink (heute – sehr zu unserer Freude in München live zu erleben) integriert auf ihrer eigenen Website ein – eigenes – YouTube Video. Die Jungs von Fink WOLLEN dieses Video auf YouTube. Sie WOLLEN, dass ihre Fans das Video auf der ganzen Welt sehen können. Und die GEMA sagt nein.

Sachdienliches Zitat aus einem sachdienlichen Artikel auf t3n:

Im vergangenen Jahr haben die Datenjournalisten von Opendatacity die 1.000 beliebtesten Videos auf YouTube ausgewertet und festgestellt, dass in Deutschland weltweit mit Abstand die meisten Videos gesperrt waren: 615 der beliebtesten 1.000 waren bis zum Januar 2013 nicht verfügbar. Danach kam der Südsudan mit 152 blockierten, der Vatikan mit 51 blockierten und Afghanistan mit 44 blockierten Videos.

Die GEMA mag ja den Musikern im Grunde ja sogar tatsächlich helfen, wenn Videos 3. ohne Einverständnis mit der Musik von GEMA Mitgliedern hinterlegt werden. Aber wenn der Musiker offensichtlich selbst YouTube als Kanal nutzt, sollten die Herren unterscheiden.

PS: Was der Titel bedeutet? Eh klar, oder?

„Stop trying to be something you are not.“

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather


„Stop trying to be something you are not.“ Right, that’s what I’m thinking when seeing TV ads of especially large(r) brands and companies – the difference between reality and claim tends to be frickin‘ huge.

Here are some categories of companies that keep trying to make you believe that they are different than what you think they are, who are trying to make you believe that they driven by something „good“ while doing their business: Energy, oil, FMCG, banks, telcos …

One quite remarkable example: GE. Guess what one of their claims is? „Wir sind das GE in GErmany.“ (We’re the GE in GErmany.) How bold is that? A qoute from their website: „GE arbeitet an Themen, die die Welt bewegen. Mit den klügsten Köpfen und den besten Technologien stellen wir uns den schwierigsten Herausforderungen.“

GE claims to have the smartest brains working for them with the best technologies and they claim to represent two seventh of a country that was the place of birth of companies such as Siemens. Not that Siemens is acting that much differently.

Are the smartest brains working in the largest corporations? They will say: „That’s a misinterpretation of what we’ve actually said. We’re working WITH the smartest brains.“ Ok, are the smartest brains working with the largest corporations? The smartest brains will accidentally work for a large corporation … for a while – but rather sooner they will resign because they can’t stand it any longer working with mediocre brains in superior positions who hate to see someone not only being really smart but doing /trying to do something really smart.

But wait, there ARE great minds and brains working for large companies. I get to work with some every day. They tend to be the guys who won’t act bold. Who have made a decision to spend more time trying to do something that appears to be impossible – change something in their own environment, something they actually have influence on, for good. Let’s find them and listen to them. What they are doing is not as black and white as it sounds. It’s about the shades of grey in business. Some of them are not a luxury but a necessity.

The quote „Stop trying to be something you are not.“ is taken from an article on OMNIPOLIS by Martin Oetting – go for it:
