Slow down



Estamos na última semana do verão e por aqui o tempo continua bem bom. Claro que não está mais tanto calor como em Agosto, mas ainda consigo andar de camisolas e tops de alças, t-shirts, vestidos e saias. Num ou noutro dia lá precisei de um blazer ou quimono de manhã cedinho ou de noite, mas ainda está calor. E o que é que eu quero com este paleio todo? Não, não é conversa de circunstância vir aqui falar do tempo. Só me chateia um bocado ver imensa gente já cheia de frio e em colecções de outono dos pés à cabeça quando ainda temos muitos dias com máximas perto dos 30º!! Really!!! Eu já dei uma olhada nas novas colecções e já me apetece o frio para vestir-me em layers, cores mais escuras, malhas, mas calma... O chinelo no pé e a sandália ainda estão mais do que permitidos! Porque já andam de botas, camisolas com gola e manga comprida, casacos de couro... se está tanto calor? Estamos em Setembro, ainda está bom tempo, não andem por aí cheias de roupa da nova colecção, qual vitrina da Zara, quando o verão não virou costas ainda! Não gosto deste corrupio que algumas influencers e celebridades imprimem na moda, parece que estão sempre à espera da nova tendência, usam sem pensar, até à exaustão, até enjoar e já não conseguirmos ver mais aquela peça na frente, mesmo que ainda estejam 25º vestem o casaco de pelo, querem sempre ser as primeiras, as pioneiras, as vanguardistas daquela tendência, mas depois acaba por ficar tudo meio descontextualizado e irreal, ou acham que faz sentido andar de gola alta com umas botas acima do joelho agora? O que vão vestir quando estiver a cair neve? Não sei, mas não me agrada esta pressa toda. Pronto, era isto, estava a precisar desabafar! Enquanto isso, e até o frio voltar (e eu quero que volte), podem contar com coisas assim, mais frescas!

We're in the last week of summer and the weather here still very good. Of course it's not as hot as August, but I still can wear sweaters and tank tops, t-shirts, dresses and skirts. On one day or another I needed a blazer or kimono in the early morning or at night, but it's still hot. And what do I want with this whole talk? No, it's not a talk of circumstance to come here to talk about weather. It only annoys me a lot to see immense people already full of cold and in autumn collections from head to toe when we still have many days with maximums near the 30 degrees!! Really!!! I've already taken a look at the new collections and I want colder days to dress in layers, darker colors, knits, but calm... The sandals on the foot are more than allowed yet! Why are so many people using boots, sweaters with a collar and long sleeves, leather coats... if it's so hot? It's September, it's still good weather, don't walk around full of clothes from the new collection, like Zara's showcase, when summer hasn't turned back yet! I don't like this rush that some influencers and celebrities print in fashion, it seems that they are always waiting for the new trend, they use without thinking, until exhaustion, until we get sick and we can no longer see that piece in front of our eyes, even if it's 25 degrees they wear the fur coat, always want to be the first, the pioneers, the avant-garde of that trend, but then it turns out to be all decontextualized and unreal, or do you think it makes sense to walk in a turtleneck with boots above the knee now? What will they wear when snow is falling? I don't know, but I don't like this whole hurry. There it was, I needed to vent! Meanwhile, and until the cold comes back (and I want it to come), you can count with fresh outfits like this!

Digital news killed print news, right?

A common argument, accepted by many for its simple narrative, is that digital news killed print news. But the reality is more complicated. Newspaper print circulation number rose until about 2005 in most Western countries, along with rising populations. That increase, however, masked the fact that household penetration began declining in the 1970s, reaching about 25-35% in those countries at the millennium. This household trend began 3 decades before the appearance of the internet news and led to advertisers to progressively reduce newspaper advertising. Advertisers were unhappy with newspapers long before the internet. The internet made it possible for many to use it capabilities for inexpensive marketing and personal marketing that cost little and took the place of print real estate, automobile, employment and other classified advertising. Internet advertising became free or low cost. The growth of internet advertising revenue never matched the amount of money leaving print because

The rapid loss of Silicon Valley naiveté

Digital tech and platform firms are rapidly losing the Silicon Valley naiveté that has characterized their activities in the past 20 years. Billions of dollars of fines and lawsuit losses for abuse of dominant positions, misuse of personal data, workplace harassment, securities violations and a host of other offenses are shaking their world. Company leaders appear aghast and paralyzed by the developments, often unable to comprehend and effectively adjust to the forces of regulation and litigation that are acting on them globally, but especially in Europe and North America. A good part of their bewilderment is due to blind spots in their perceptions of themselves and the place of digital firms in society.   For two decades their founders, the companies themselves and digital gatherings and conventions have repeated the mantra that they are revolutionary, different, and old rules don’t apply.   They have argued that digital tech frees users and firms from the constraints of national regu

Digital media incapable of privacy self-regulation

Digital media firms have long argued against privacy regulation asserting that regulators don’t understand the ways they work, that digital firms have strong incentives to protect the privacy of users, and that the firms do so through self-regulation. Unfortunately, for years we have witnessed major digital players continually apologizing for their lapses in protecting the privacy of their customers, often violating their own policies and promises, and for not ensuring that others with whom they do business protect the privacy of the data they access and use. There has been a constant failure to put their customers’ privacy interests first and digital companies have dismissed criticism and call for regulation as misguided or perilous. The regulations that have appeared, such as the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), have improved transparency and the abilities to control how some of their personal information is used, but is doing little to control the ma
