Author David Graham in an article in the Theatlantic.com isn’t doing the press, nor himself for that matter, a favour with his one-sided piece on the bad relationship between the press and Donald J. Trump.
Yes, the attacks of the US President on his advisories, including journalists, are often a bit childish; his latest video bashing CNN isn’t the most ‘presidential’ response to the problems the station is currently facing due to its continual hammering on the Russia conspiracy that simply doesn’t want to materialise. However, this is the price you pay as a news organisation if you prefer to report based on sympathy and dogma, instead of limiting yourself to reporting and explaining the facts.
In his article, nowhere is Graham even mentioning the continuous, vicious attacks on the President by the press, nor the unsubstantiated claims about him colluding with the Russians to steal the election. Graham wants to make you believe that until now the press has only rationally and factually written about Donald J. Trump, which makes it completely unfair of him to attack them so viciously.
The other day, I was reading a book about Product Management called Aptitudes of an Energized Product Manager, written by Linda Gorchels. She has written several internationally acclaimed books, of which The Product Manager’s Handbook 4/E is probably the best known. In a way, “Aptitudes of an Energized Product Manager” can be seen as a […]
Ever since the Snowden revelations privacy is a big subject. A recent report from PEW revealed that Americans did take action to protect their online privacy better. On the other hand, companies like Facebook and Google, who mainly make their money by selling your, anonymised, private information to anybody, are still showing healthy profits. The […]
Recently, I was reviewing some new concepts and noticed something strange. Normally, this is the fun part of Product Management (especially road mapping), but this time I got more and more irritated. Endless documents, mainly powerpoint slides (which I hate so much), with meaningless one-liners. Graphs with the most crazy predictions on how these new […]
It was the marketing trick of the year 2013, when the original Mailbox app was launch for Apple’s iPhone. After a couple of raving reviews, the creators of the App put up a waiting list. So, you could download the app, but not use it right away. You had to wait for your turn. That […]
A while ago, Dan Dana, the author of „The Reason Revolution: Atheism, Secular Humanism, and the Collapse of Religion” sent out an invitation to review his upcoming eBook. The title was very inspiring so I signed up. The book is available now. After reading it extensively, find below my review. As the title suggests, the […]
One of the most powerful word in any language in the world is „why”. There is no better way to increase your knowledge then by asking „why”, nor is there often nothing more challenging than to answer such a question. The word „why” is the key to innovation and as such to human progress. Maybe […]
Some time ago, I felt that I had to upgrade my computer. It was at the same time the first tablets were appearing. The iPhone has started its rise to fame. I had an Apple before and I liked it a lot. It made me think of that old Atari 1040ST I owned a long […]
Originally, I thought it was a joke, as the tweet announcing it was dated April 1st. I’m referring to a post that I came across while curating for Strategic Design. It was a tweet from a man called PZ Meyers. He normally writes about or links to pretty decent articles, but this one turned out […]
As a content curator for two internet magazines, Strategic Design (via Flipboard) and Liberalism (via Paper.ly) I read a lot of different articles everyday about a variety of subjects. Probably it is not a surprise that I come across a lot of weird stuff. To be honest, ever since I started using a browser on […]
