And that’s really it for Google+

... To complicate matters, Google kept Google+ around, even after the launch of Currents, but in an email to G Suite admins, it has now announced that Google+ for G Suite will close its doors on July 6, after which there will be no way to opt out of Currents or revert back to Google+.

And with that, Google has driven the final nail into Google+’s coffin. The Google+ mobile apps will be automatically updated to Currents. All existing links to Google+ will redirect to Currents.

Going forward, Google+ will only live on as a hazy memory, filled with circles of friends, all of which were forced to use their real name (at least at the beginning), +1 buttons everywhere, sparks and the promise of fun games, ripples and more. ....

Can social media platform optimization strategies move from purely quantitative metrics ("time on site", "daily active users", "engagement" etc.) to qualitative metrics like "time well spent" or "social responsibility".

And who gets to decide what time well spent is? - H/t to ZEIT ONLINE

Results from this weekends ballot issues in Switzerland. The ability of the Swiss electorate to seemingly vote against its immediate self-interest continues to puzzle outside observers... who could be against more paid vacation?

Explaining the seeming contraction that post-gentrified cities like Zürich increasingly vote for a red/green government: the new urban elite likes quality of life and good government services. The traditional middle-class has been pushed out by gentrification and the wealthy who prefer low taxes have long left for tax havens like SZ or ZG.

Business ideas of the day:
- electronic shareholder voting systems specialized for Swiss securities law
- voting compliance management software for Swiss pension funds

Background:
According to a new article in the constitution, publicly traded Swiss companies must offer electronic shareholder voting and pension funds must exercise their voting rights and publish their voting record.

Chancenland statt Freilichtmuseum?

Despite near unlimited funding, a well tuned political propaganda machine and an army of loyal party soldiers the SVP was defeated today on its home turf, the "bad foreigner" issue.

Largely abandoned by the traditional political parties and interest groups, the fight was led by rag-tag alliance of public officials, business leaders, intellectuals, artists and generally concerned citizens.

Among the winners of today is Operation Libero, a new kind of political movement which is trying to re-invent with youthful optimism the principles of liberal democracy for the 21st century and defend it against the rising forces of populist nationalism.

As a friend of enlightened rationalism, I am happy to see our side joining the fight with renewed vigor.

Today was a good day for the friends of The Enlightenment. The Swiss voters have stood up for a vision of the state that is based on sober principles like human rights and the rule of law rather than the passions of a frightened, angry mob.

This reads like a script for a movie about a dedicated teacher unwilling to give up on his students in a dead-end school in some US inner-city district - maybe another remake of The Principal... (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093780/)

Today, Switzerland has nearly twice the level of immigration then the US and the schools are often academically failing immigrant students from lower social classes, who might hardly even learn the language they are supposed to be educated in during 9 years of public school.

What does seem to work though, is the apprenticeship as a motor of social mobility (https://infocus.credit-suisse.com/app/article/index.cfm?fuseaction=OpenArticle&aoid=370796&coid=371616&lang=EN).

+The Economist is adding a new weekly section for China, as it did last for the US in 1942. This was about the time when the US (re)-invented large-scale industrial mass-production. Reading the recent +The New York Times article on Apple's supply-chain, it looks like China is in the middle of bringing that to the next level.
