Say Media Rebrands ReadWriteWeb as ReadWrite

first_imgIn his note, Lyons adds that coverage will double down on mobile: “Mobile devices combined with social networks are evolving into a new mass medium that will displace television and define our age.”Content will also be contributed by a growing base of writers, including readers, says the company. Say Media, which operates a number of digital properties across fashion, technology, food and living verticals, has rebranded the web trends and tech reporting site ReadWriteWeb to the shorter ReadWrite. The site has also hired Dan Lyons as its new editor-in-chief. Lyons was previously a columnist for Newsweek and was responsible for the Fake Steve Jobs blog. The rebranding comes about 10 months after Say Media bought the site and includes a new tablet-first, responsive design built on a proprietary CMS called Orion.Lyons replaces founding editor Richard MacManus who started the site from New Zealand in 2003 and left mid-October to begin work on a book.  In an introductory editor’s note, Lyons says the new name reflects a broader focus: “As for our new name, the rationale for the change is pretty simple. Technology has evolved beyond the Web, and we’re adapting to keep up with the changing digital media landscape.”last_img read more

Helado Negro Announces New Album Tour With Beirut

first_img Twitter News Email Facebook Helado Negro Announces New Album, Tour With Beirut center_img Helado Negro Announces New Album, Tour helado-negro-announces-new-album-tour-beirut The musician and producer will bring his Latin-inspired electro/experimental music on a world tour with indie group Beirut, in support of his upcoming sixth studio album, ‘This Is How You Smile’Jennifer VelezGRAMMYs Nov 14, 2018 – 2:49 pm “Young, Latin And Proud” producer and singer, Helado Negro will soon be bringing his dose of electro-infused, Latin-inspired music to a city near you. He recently dropped a lead single, “Please Won’t Please,” shared a release date for his upcoming album and announced a 2019 tour with Beirut.  The Miami-born, New York-based musician, born Roberto Carlos Lange, will tour as direct support of indie rock/folk group Beirut in North America and Europe in the winter and spring as well as play additional select headline shows. The tour will bring music from his sixth studio album This Is How You Smile, out on March 8, to fans all over the world.Known as the creator of Latin pride anthems like “It’s My Brown Skin,” his latest album continues to explore his identity more introspectively, looking at both the past and the present. While his last album, 2016’s Private Energy, was Lange’s self-love response to the social and political experiences faced by people of color in the last years, his forthcoming album This Is How You Smile gets more personal with music inspired by his upbringing. One song, “Seen My Aura,” tells the story of his hot pavement walk alongside his brother to the community pool. Other subjects he explores include his relationship with his father, childhood relationships and love. In his words, the album is “a person approaching you, slowly, for 40 minutes.” “Please Won’t Please” is the world’s first taste of Lange’s newest material and the album’s opening song; the only one on the album that tackles a collective experience. Like many of his songs, “Please Won’t Please” poetically tackles heavy, socio-political realities faced by immigrants and people of color. The song is reminiscent of Private Energy and highlights the sacrifices people of color make just to exist in a world that oppresses them, but also their unwavering ability to keep going. “History shows that brown won’t go, brown just glows/And we’ll light ourselves on fire, just to see if anyone believes,” he sings.A portion of the proceeds of his album will go to United We Dream, an immigrant rights organization.

What Will the Future of Work Look Like After the Robot Revolution

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. People often fear that a robot will take their job. Unfortunately, that fear might not be so far-fetched.The idea of a robot revolution is becoming more and more realistic. On average, one robot can do the job of 5.6 persons in the manufacturing industry. However, artificial intelligence threatens more than just manufacturing. From IBM’s Watson, which can specify cancer treatments for patients, to the rise of self-driving cars, AI is infiltrating nearly every industry and diminishing the need for the human touch.Related: Automation Is Not Tomorrow — It’s TodaySo what does this mean for the future? According to research compiled by Online Schools Center, by 2025, the amount of robots in the U.S. could quadruple, and by 2033, nearly half of all jobs in the country could be at risk of automation. In order to accomodate a world where robots make up half the workforce, some professionals suggest a universal basic income with heavy corporate taxes be implemented along with the removal of employment-based income. Of course, that’s easier said than done, but imagine a technology-driven world where most things are free and luxuries such as driverless cars, AI personal assistants and smart home tech are common.Related: Advancing Automation Means Humans Need to Embrace Lifelong LearningAs scary as it all might sound, a robot revolution doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Like the industrial revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries, by having machines take over human labor and humans to contribute more cognitive labor, the AI revolution could have similar outcomes. People will have more time to pursue hobbies and passions, volunteer and learn about new technologies. That’s not so bad, right?To learn more, check out Online Schools Center’s infographic below.
