YouTube Music’s Head Quits, a Setback to Paid Service - Digits - WSJ -
LaRosa is the second person in charge of YouTube’s music service to leave over the past 12 months. The other, Nikhil Chandhok, left last fall according to his LinkedIn profile. Chandhok was a director in charge of music, paid subscriptions and live streaming, according to the profile. Both departures resulted in part from frustrations that YouTube has been unable to launch its music subscription service in the year-plus since the first version of it was developed, according to a person familiar the matter. Those delays have resulted from internal arguments about how the service should be designed, including what features YouTube should charge users for and how the service should be integrated with the rest of YouTube. [Is another testament that YT is 4 Larry Page only 2nd Class [no urgency]. GOOG wont be hurt by those incidents, but moral & motivation suffers. The cash cow is & will be running in perpetuity (Google Search (A Portal) with AdSense & AdSense across the web).] - Michael Jung

Rethinking Economic Theory: The Evolutionary Roots Of Irrationality : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture : NPR -
Research into behavioral economics has shown, for example, that our assessment of what something is worth to us can be directly, and predictably, influenced. This is the illusion of the free lunch, something humans are known to fall for even when economic theory would clearly suggest we select a more valuable option at a small cost. Ariely also beautifully elucidates how we sometimes operate on social norms, while other times we fall into market norms. The difference is in whether there is a price attached to something. - Michael Jung

The Tulisa Sting Wasn't Just Classist, It Was Informed by a Racism That Associated Her With Criminality | NOISEY -
Yesterday Tulisa walked free from a drug trial that had the potential to destroy her career. It was collapsed by a judge who deemed that the reporter who led the sting had lied at a pre-trial hearing. There was always something trap like about it - a cynical show orchestrated to drag a successful woman through the dirt. [...] || & - Michael Jung

Memo to my daughter: “Keep your eye on the ball and hit hard” | PandoDaily -
What I love about Abramson’s [...] she’s named it, she’s owned it, but she doesn’t make herself a victim. She knows she lives in a sexist world and that makes her victories– and even her defeats– that much sweeter. This is how we should talk about women in the world. Not stupid debates about having it all. Taking the world as it exists, naming it, shrugging, and continuing to fight. // +++ // "entrenched short-sightedness and sexist cruelty of male-controlled media [...] Yay, thanks for some crumbs of enlightened thinking, for some slightly nuanced improvements in the daily, punishing business of publicly evaluating and then reevaluating women’s worth. [...] 'I don’t fucking care if you like it.' [...] Social Media [frictionless, not thinking twice or setting something aside for a day]. [Women's] life['s and worth's] are up for public evaluation. [To this day.]" - Michael Jung
