Yet Another view About Organizational Secrets, Episode 1

No Comments

The short answer is that as the many stories by the IntlSpyMuseum in Washington demonstrate, organizational secrets are a very unreliable tool even, if all, who are authorized to get access to them, are screened properly, because in addition to spies the authorized personnel can be just plain stupid, careless or their political views can change …

Droone õhku lennutava kahuri idee, versioon 0

No Comments

Kunagi, kui ma teismeline olin, 90-ndatel, oli mul üheks lemmik-mänguasjaks, mis paraku küll kunagi eriti kaua vastu ei pidanud ja mida mul tuli aeg-ajalt uuesti kingituseks lunida, selline ragulka-laadse, kummipaelaga, asjaga vertikaalselt üles lennutatav lennuk, millel oli plastmassist kere, maandudes kergesti purunevad, üles-lennutamise ajal kokku-volditud, vahtplastist tiivad. Üles-lendamise ajal hoidis õhuvool kokku-volditud tiibu koos, kuid kui …

2015_10 versioon minu arusaamast teemal, mis asi on majandus

No Comments

Kuna mulle meeldib oma enda mõtteid ja (väheseid) teadmisi süstematiseerida, üldistusi teha, ebaolulist minema visata, siis kritseldasin kunagi oma enda mõtete korrastamiseks järgnevalt viidatud joonise. Tegu on kokkuvõttega, mis kajastab nii ärimudelite temaatikat, müügiga seonduvat psühholoogiat, igasugu turu-analüütikat, suurkorporatiivset diktatuuri-temaatikat, suurkorporatsioonide ja väikefirmade ja vabakutseliste tegutsejate erinevusi, turgude erinevusi, vaba turu ja konkurentsi temaatikat, niiöelda "makro-ökonoomikat" …

Thoughts on the Internet-of-Things (IoT), Episode 0

No Comments

The main message of this article is that the idea of combining software, cheap-enough computing and every-day object is NOT yet another stupid marketing hype, but a practical trend that probably increases demand for firmware development services.

Selgitus, miks New York'i kesklinn on "Lollideküla"

No Comments

Arutelu dominant seisneb üüri-hinnas, New York'i kesklinna ümbritseva piirkonna linna-planeeringus, globaalsetes kaupade/teenuste hindades. Antud arutelu kehtib väiksemas mastaabis ka Londoni ja Tallinna kesklinnade kohta. Kui odavama otsa üüri-hind 2015. aasta New York'is on "keskmiselt" 100€/m^3, piltlikumalt öeldes, nõuka-aegse Tallinna korteri suuruse korteri kuuüür on odavaimal juhul ~5000$ ja seda mitte vaid interneti-andmetel, vaid tean seda ka …

Summary of the Blue Ocean Strategy

In stead of playing a null sum game in the "blood-red" ocean, where sharks fight with each other for the market share, the blue ocean strategy is to look at the "red ocean" and list as many segments of "non-customers" of the red ocean as possible. The non-customers are all of those people that are not …

About in 2001 I dreamt of a coffee shop, where people can listen to music all the time without ever needing to listen to the same song twice. I did not like, how radio stations repeat the same songs all over again. In 2015 there is mobile internet and YouTube that brings that dream into reality …

The videos on YouTube about the Dijkstra's algorithm are almost all very nice and helpful, my gratitude to the people, who created them, but at the time of writing this blog post, I'm dumb enough to not understand the "shortEST" path side of the story.

Some Thoughts on Stupidity, View 1

No Comments

It's easy to say that aren't the crooks stupid to ruin their collaboration opportunities by committing their banal acts or that violence is not a smart way to resolve disputes. On the other hand, it's pretty stupid to explain philosophy to the shark that is chewing Your feet or to the soldier, who is turning his/her …

Sales, Smarts and Scale (SSS), Episode 1point5

Probably it's not possible to sell math related consulting services or language courses to apes in the jungle. The apes just do not feel that they need that, even if they had something to pay with. Penguins could use some hunting harpoons to defend themselves against Orca whales and other predators, but they probably do not …

The Future of Security Audits, Episode 0

As software grows larger and larger, there is no chance that people are able to manually audit code. Just like people make syntax mistakes, people make semantics mistakes, mis-design and mis-understand design patterns.

If groceries is looked at, then clearly the buy-sell-exchange activity is amiable, honorable, activity that clearly benefits everyone. The same with exchange of other, premanufactured(!!!), simple-to-use, goods like clothing, home …
