Syret tænkt, smukt udført

Vores lokale kunstgalleri i Svendborg, SAK, har en ny udstilling med en stribe af de gamle rock-musikere, som har kastet sig over billedkunst på deres gamle dage: Troels Trier, Erik Clausen, Franz Beckerlee etc. Det er ganske finurligt, men når det kommer til virkelig at kunne tegne, så rager Ole Fick langt over resten. Det er både mesterligt udført - og temmelig syret tænkt. Check hans website.

Glassholes and drones

Drones and Google glasses may be a lot of fun for the person controlling them, but for everybody else they are likely to be a nuissance. 
They are technologies whose use obviously affects others. Being allowed to use them at a given location is not just a matter of individual freedom, since using them affects the freedom of others not to feel spied on, or not being disturbed by the buzzing overhead. 
It will be interesting to see how it plays out. How will we enforce drone or glass – free zones?

Newsletter on Chinese mid-market; Relations between HQ and subsidiary

To what extent should the subsidiary in China be allowed to act differently than the mother-company in Denmark? It’s a delicate balance: The Danish headquarter needs consistency and
coordination among its divisions – but the subsidiary in China needs freedom and resources to pursue opportunities in a rapidly changing market.
The latest newsletter from the Suitable for Growth project at the Universe Foundation focuses on how to manage that balance.
