Moog Synthesizer company says Trump's China tariffs will hurt business


This post is not directly related to music technology (sorry about that) but it does go to show with economics when you adjust one variable there is a cause and effect relationship and the big thing is to carefully consider what sort of an effect there is in a global economy.

In this case, it is now proudly US made music tech that is also feeling the effects. The effect was seen in reverse years ago when earnings taxes were cheaper outside the US and Microsoft, Apple, etc established headquarters outside the USA to declare their earnings. When import duties go up a similar effect is seen a global economy where it will be cheaper for you to direct your raw material to, and manufacture, in a foreign country especially when you are selling worldwide outside of the USA.

It's certainly good news for other countries who will increase manufacturing outputs and of course employ more people as a result.

Instagram will tell you when you're 'caught up' so you know when to stop scrolling


Once upon a time, this is how all social networks worked... you scrolled back chronologically until you found the last posts that you had previously read.. equals all read and caught up!

Not so anymore with many social networks (like G+ and Facebook) who mix up what they think is important (via some alogorithm) along with articles you read yesterday. At least give users an option to choose between chronological vs "tweaked". Not knowing when to stop means I just bother to go back three or five screens and no further as I'll never know when I've reached my previously read articles.

So really good going Instagram on giving the choice!!

I think there are "citizen programmers" today but not enough in numbers, and not organized well enough.
"Nelson talks about how he and his fellow pioneers thought the future would be a world of citizen programmers, how the Web omits much of the architecture underlying Xanadu, and his advice for breaking through the current limits to new conceptual ground."
