The popularization of tech is a good thing in some ways. Now, more brilliant people with brilliant ideas who work hard, persevere, and have luck on their side are getting the recognition they deserve. That's encouraging for the next generation of genuine entrepreneurs. Trouble is, now for every Zuck, there are many more who serve little more value than industry flotsam and jetsam.
Some, however, question whether low cost is an advantage in the long term. "Cheap beer and rents don’t necessarily make the Berlin start-up-crowd the world’s most ambitious and hardest working", warns Thomas Ramge, who works for Brand Eins, an edgy business magazine based in Hamburg.

Freeway Rick Ross as opposed to the rapper known as Rick Ross, a blubbery former college football player and corrections officer whose birth name is William Leonard Roberts II. When Roberts entered the music game, he appropriated the name and tattooed it across his fists: RICK RO$$.

There’s really no established etiquette for wearing a computer on your head, but after a few weeks, the rules became clear: in a restaurant, in a meeting, in a conversation, Glass has to come off.

Die in den letzten Wochen ohnehin schon schlagzeilenträchtige illegale Download-Seite boox.to ist um eine Attraktion reicher. Ein bislang bei so renommierten Verlagen wie Bastei Lübbe und Aufbau publizierender Autor verbreitet sein neues Werk exklusiv über boox.to und hofft auf Spenden.

In der Summe sehe ich die Fünf-Prozent-Hürde als ein nach wie vor wichtiges Element unserer Demokratie.
