Interesting Things on the Internet: July 7th 2014 Edition
- Retail futures, mediated through our phones. Premature monetisation risks ruining the future city. The slick user story of personalised service, smoothly delivered to the wealthy relaxed consumer as they browse the aisles is seductive. We told ourselves we were “improving” the experience. The reality is going to be every single store, shouting with a desperate digital screech, delivering invasive messages and insta-deals.
- You and your research. Text of a great speech about the discipline and techniques required to do great work.
- The Disloyal.
- Can we stop talking about transformation? Julian on fine form. Looking forward to discussing smarter cities with him at an event on July 10th
- (Not only) Women sailing on a new holistic business wave. Contributoria continues to attract good work (and they've just introduced an option to subscribe to a printed version too)
