Summary of “‘The Basic Grossness of Humans'”

Roberts has been studying the labor of content moderation for most of a decade, ever since she saw a newspaper clipping about a small company in the Midwest that took on outsourced moderation work.
It paired two people who had been content moderators: Rasalyn Bowden, who became a content-review trainer and supervisor at Myspace, and Rochelle LaPlante, who works on Amazon Mechanical Turk and is the cofounder of an organizing platform for people who work on that platform, MTurkCrowd.com.
There are very few full-time employees working out of corporate headquarters in Silicon Valley doing this kind of stuff.
“The workers may be structurally removed from those firms via outsourcing companies who take on CCM contracts and then hire the workers under their auspices, in call-center environments,” Roberts has written.
“Such outsourcing firms may also recruit CCM workers using digital piecework sites such as Amazon Mechanical Turk or Upwork, in which the relationships between the social-media firms, the outsourcing company, and the CCM worker can be as ephemeral as one review.”
Most pressingly LaPlante drew attention to the economic conditions under which workers are laboring.
Yet the people doing it are lucky to make minimum wage, have no worker protections, and must work at breakneck speed to try to earn a living.
These thousands of people have been acting as the police for the boundaries of “Acceptable online discourse.” And as a rule, they have been unsupported, underpaid, and left to deal with the emotional trauma the work causes, while the companies they work for have become the most valuable in the world.

Summary of “Processing My Struggle With Depression And Imposter Syndrome in Silicon Valley”

I didn’t have that skill in 2011; I wasn’t processing my emotions, how I was feeling and even worse, how I was making others feel around me.
While working to overcome my depression, I was still in San Francisco, going through the life cycles of entrepreneurship, working for a startup, launching a startup,, meeting with investors, raising money, looking at job opportunities, launching hackathons and winning hackathons.
Thinking about each of those meetings, I know how the Silicon Valley network effects and culture works.
Some Lessons learned from depression: 1) Be honest with yourself 2) Once you start feeling depressed, acknowledge it and seek help 3) Find out what makes you happy and repeat it 4) Get out of your comfort zone and do something fun 5) Talk to and trust real friends 6) Work towards security 7) See professional help, therapist.
Slowly I started feeling better emotionally over the last three to four years, but I noticed another emotional roadblock, impostor syndrome.
Impostor syndrome is a feeling that you’re a fraud.
Feelings of failure, a sense of not being satisfied, feelings of not knowing your strengths.
Once you combine depression, imposter syndrome and introversion, it’s like creating a mind poison.

Summary of “Austin’s legacy of neon signs”

There may be no designer who’s left so deep an imprint on downtown Austin as the antiques dealer turned neon restorer turned neon artist.
“You’re breathing neon right now. It’s.00046 percent of the air you’re breathing, but neon is everywhere.”
Claude brought neon to the U.S. in 1923; neon as we know it arrived in Austin about 10 years later.
“It’s getting harder and harder for us to get supplies, to get glass, to get neon tubes.” Many U.S. cities have regulated against exposed neon in their sign codes over the years, leading to a decrease in demand-and in manufacturing-nationwide for the materials needed to create neon signs.
The disappearance of Austin’s most iconic neon signs speaks more to the difficulty of keeping a business in Austin open today than any dwindling interest in neon.
Greg and his team removed all remnants of the old neon; completely gutted the inside of the porcelain enamel sign, including the electrical wiring and neon transformers; shoved out 79 years’ worth of pigeon poop; replaced the electrical components; made the majority of the neon from scratch; and polished the porcelain enamel.
On top of creating hundreds of pieces all over town-like the marquees for Austin-born movie theater chain Alamo Drafthouse, and a roping cowboy riding a bucking rabbit for legendary antiques store Uncommon Objects, where Voyles sold his first original neon sign 24 years ago-Voyles maintains much of Austin’s remaining pre-1960 neon.
The irony, Voyles notes, is that Austin’s uniqueness-and yes, weirdness-lured outside developers and investors to the city, and Voyles’s neon signs are, in part, responsible.

Summary of “Is the age of management over?”

“The key to management is to get rid of the managers,” advised Ricardo Semler, whose TED Talk went viral, introducing terms such as “Industrial democracy” and “Corporate re-engineering”.
It’s important to point out that Mr. Semler isn’t an academic or an expert in management theory, he is the CEO of a successful industrial company.
The World Bank estimates the size of the global workforce at about 3.5 billion people, and by no means would I expect, much less advocate, that those who are employed today will transition into a management-free structure in the near or even medium term.
Today, we define management as the process of dealing with or controlling things or people.
Controlling things no longer appears plausible, and controlling people is downright counterproductive.
Steve Jobs hit the nail on the head when he said: “It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and then tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.”
Non-standard, creative, experimental work, on the other hand, doesn’t naturally lend itself to management.
The bottom line is that the hierarchical management mode is no longer suited for the challenges of the modern economy.

Summary of “The Human Cost of the Ghost Economy”

The distance between the main employer, the company that hires the temp agency, and the worker who fulfills these gigs, allows for the same type of casual cruelty that is exchanged between people who meet on online dating apps.
Temp jobs began after the second world war, offering work at companies like Kelly Girl, a billion-dollar staffing company based in Michigan, on a short-term basis.
As temping has grown, the quality of jobs has deteriorated, and temps now earn 20 to 25 percent less an hour than those who work as direct hires, according to government statistics.
As temping has grown, the quality of jobs has deteriorated, and temps now earn 20 to 25 percent less an hour than those who work as direct hires.
The permanent staff worked a good city union job but they hired temp workers to fill in the gaps.
Two months prior, a worker for Remedy Intelligent Staffing, 21-year-old Lawrence Daquan “Day” Davis, was crushed to death during his first day on the job at a Bacardi Bottling Corporation facility in Florida.
An examination of wage and hour violations for the years 1980 to 2010 for subcontractors, temp agencies, and primary employers of the industries that are most predominantly temped out shows that temp agencies have a substantially higher rate of failure to pay health benefits – 34 percent of workers don’t receive them – and failure to pay at all – a whole 29 percent.
While not all temp agencies are committing wage theft, lack of contact with one’s primary employer creates a dehumanizing work environment.

Summary of “Will Robots Take Our Children’s Jobs?”

Any legal job that involves lots of mundane document review is vulnerable.
Then there is Wall Street, where robots are already doing their best to shove Gordon Gekko out of his corner office.
Who knows what the jobs marketplace might look like by then.
Artificial intelligence is different, said Martin Ford, the author of “Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future.” Machine learning does not just give us new machines to replace old machines, pushing human workers from one industry to another.
Since Mr. Ford’s book sent me down this rabbit hole in the first place, I reached out to him to see if he was concerned about all this for his own children: Tristan, 22, Colin, 17, and Elaine, 10.He said the most vulnerable jobs in the robot economy are those involving predictable, repetitive tasks, however much training they require.
“A lot of knowledge-based jobs are really routine – sitting in front of a computer and cranking out the same application over and over, whether it is a report or some kind of quantitative analysis,” he said.
So do jobs emphasizing empathy and interpersonal communication.
In their vision of a post-A.I. world without traditional jobs, everyone will receive a minimum weekly or monthly stipend.

Summary of “Jim Simons, the Numbers King”

“Every day, he walks into the lobby and sees his mother’s picture,” Jim Simons, the institute’s founder, told me.
Simons works out of a top-floor corner office across the street from the institute, in a building occupied by its administrative parent, the Simons Foundation.
Simons has amassed the same processing capacity as would normally be present in the computer hub of a mid-sized research university: the equivalent of six thousand high-end laptops.
Marilyn Simons told me that her husband is an “Information processor,” adding, “Whatever it is, he’ll chew it up.” Jim Simons told me that he’s more comfortable discussing astronomy than biology, because he understands the presentations better, but he seemed adept at following abstruse discussions in both fields.
For Simons, ideas and money have always been intertwined.
His chairmanship coincided with the era of Nelson Rockefeller, the ambitious governor of New York, who wanted the school to be the “Berkeley of the East.” Under Simons, the department expanded and gained in prestige.
Jim and Marilyn Simons became major charitable donors in the nineteen-nineties, when they launched their foundation.
“My concern is that the generosity of Jim Simons will let the rest of us off the hook,” he said.

If you’re a creative person, I’d recommend giving yourself time to work on a project is a great “Treat.”
Setting aside real time to just READ. An investment of time, rather than money.
As long as it doesn’t feel like a chore, making the time to exercise can be a way to reconnect with your body and set aside time for yourself.
Time is my best “Free” treat, specifically time away from something.
Spending time outside has the double benefit of getting you out of your stresshole and into nature.
Nov15-22 suggests “Carving out time for yourself. There is always going to be something that needs to be done. But it doesn’t mean it has to always be done NOW.”.
IMO, the times I feel happiest are having social situations that don’t require any work of me.
Yes, it’s food, but it’s a meal I’d already be making and eating, so instead of trying to get work done or truly multitask during it, I make the cooking time time for myself.

Summary of “The False Narrative of Damien Hirst’s Rise and Fall”

The rise and fall of Damien Hirst is an oft-told tale of hubris and nemesis.
I can watch, for example, how auction prices for the once red-hot artist Damien Hirst have declined and then decide to do a story on his recent attempts at a comeback.
Hirst has been happily selling hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of art to more-than-willing collectors while effectively sidelining the auction houses, where collectors sell their works.
To evaluate Hirst’s fortunes by examining the visible market for his works made sense only until September 15, 2008.
Hirst started selling his work directly to collectors, at scale, and stopped playing by the established gallery-system rules.
Freed from gallery constraints, Hirst could make the work he wanted to make, and sell it at whatever price his collectors were willing to pay.
Museums aren’t supposed to work that way! But for Hirst, having sold straight out of an auction house, the obvious next step was to sell straight out of a museum show.
There’s no death spiral here: Damien Hirst is living large.
