Communication is always something that involves multiple parties. An interrogator may yell something to the person, who is tied up to some chair and is being tortured, and the person being tortured may even do some parroting to answer something back, but it is always the prerogative of a person itself, whether he gives a true …

My thoughts started to wonder around the Donald Trump's propaganda slogan, the "Let's make America Great Again", but not in the context that his Public Relations advisers probably thought of it, but from the perspective of a person, who has lived in the Soviet Union (I'm an Estonian, born in 1981), seen the transition from a …

Yet Another Stupid idea About Business, Episode X1

No Comments

That's an everlasting topic and this won't be the last of my posts on that topic, because I'll probably never figure out how to earn huge quantities of money without delivering crap or ripping off my clients in some other way. That limitation might be even called "Philosophy Induced Economic Handicap". After all, look how prosperously …

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" …

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 …

List of the most Worthless Terms in IT

No Comments

In the context of this article the worthlessness is defined as a lack of limits. For example, if the words "horse", "lion", "wolf", "red-head", "granny", "snow-white", "prince", were all replaced with the word "animal", then what would the stories be like?

Who cares about (and pays for) "quality"?

No Comments

According to marketing people "quality" is a subjective measure and it is not necessarily a synonym for "reliability". On the other hand, if the amount of "functionality" is constant and markup is a fixed percentage of the price, then the reliability tends to correlate with price, e.g. the higher the reliability, the higher the price.
