When HBR is talking about design thinking, you know it is all gray, blue & straight lines! it is always easy to bet against US, just not easy to win that bet in the long term.

@abrams candidly I am sick and tired of reading shit articles which don't do the basics right. It is disrespectful of readers.@harper everyone has a book like that. Don't pick sides :)@abrams explain to me what newsfeed management and development means in English and not some bullshit corporate speak!@abrams I see you belong to "headline" school of readers. I didn't get what they do. I edited for a living & I would have killed this pieceIt would have been good if the writer/editor could tell us what the company did. Simple explainer is all I ask. than $5 trillion has been wiped off the value of global stock markets since Beijing devalued the yuan a fortnight ago #GreatFallOfChina
Retweeted by Om Malik@hblodget by the way enjoying your commentary and tweets!@hblodget never thought I would hear you say that but hey the older we get, the grumpier we get about certain thing 😜It seems like market declines are Prozac for @hblodget 2.0FYI The ability to stay private longer (by raising $) is wholly dependent on the public markets for technology thriving.

Retweeted by Om Malik@iankennedy explains Nokia vs iPhone?I wonder if @Finnair has an explanation for many many bags I see that are way over 2 lbs over weight limit. much focus is on what new features the next iPhone will have. Instead why not ask, what Apple can remove from it? yeah... @Finnair is a really expensive budget airline.
Retweeted by Om MalikDamn @Finnair you know how to screw with a traveler's mind. Causing unnecessary drama over mere 2 lbs on carry on luggage.This! reminder for @Twitter why it needs to have a longterm view of their platform & developers chart that shows growth in US Cable Broadband & slow decline in PayTV @fredwilson@eric_analytics don't worry -- more tariffs are coming.Skeptical of Pew survey of mobile apps 'cause sample size too small for a large market Broadband is winning & PayTV is not + the sate of the US Broadband
Darwinism At Your Doorstep: Why You Only Care About Amazon Now #thoughful @TechCrunch@Jason I want you to articulate a response to what @mayoredlee should do. For now he does nothing except for keep buddies happy@Jason As a long time resident, i have paid taxes longer than you have as a new comer. Don't get sanctimonious unless you wanna do something@Jason Love your trash talk about the city, but when was the last time you even picked up a piece of trash from the street. Seriously?@Jason sometimes you should ask these questions to yourself - can I be the change that I want to see@Jason by the way why aren't you going after the corrupt mayor we have in SF. Start by getting rid of @mayoredlee or is he too close 4uWhat have you done personally to make Df better? I don't think tweets absolve one of civic responsibility. no it doesn't - it just is a lot of shouting and posturing for attention. Respectfully disagree with you & @brezina@Jason @SupeJaneKim my idea of dialogue is not 140 character grandstanding, which is what you believe in. If you are serious, get involved@brezina @Jason if you want change, engage in dialogue, find time to meet @SupeJaneKim & talk about issues instead of doing tweets.Forgot @Snapchat & @Spotify also not public :) dude you are a faux hipster and it is time to come out as a "suit" now that you work for PayPal 😆Well looks like @harper can finally get a shave. You are no longer required to have facial hair black girl takeover of fashion's September issues is beyond anything I've seen as a journalist.
