Talks of new technologies stealing our jobs are not a 21st-century thing. One could say the kickstart of unemployment fears was the Luddist movement during the industrial revolution in the UK, but we find evidence of technological unemployment even in Aristotle or during the Romans! For instance, in the 1st Century AD, Emperor Vespasian refused to implement a technology that cut the costs of transportation since this could affect employment in the Empire.

On November 29, 2018, after years of silence, the anonymous creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, gave signs of activity on the social P2P Foundation, when Nakamoto friended another user — Wagner Tamanaha, a Brazilian cryptocurrency enthusiast, according to his about me bio on the social — and posted the word “nour” in parenthesis. The meaning of such a word is still debated.

And it doesn’t really apply to GameStop alone…

How can I even start an article whose topic is that a bunch of Reddit users violently startled the American establishment — to the point that the CEO of NASDAQ proposed to halt trading due to unusual activity in the stock?

Can we conceive beauty as an objective parameter — and thus achieve corporate communication goals— or is it merely subjective and out of an agency’s understanding?

At the end of the day, digital communication centres around two main goals: to pass a message on the audience effectively and beautifully.

Non tutto è perduto. Serve solo un po’ di umanità.

Non c’è bisogno di dire quanto il coronavirus ha trasformato le nostre vite, sia professionali, che personali. Il lavoro e il rapporto coi colleghi oramai è principalmente digitale, le comunicazioni interne sono incentrate sulla sicurezza e il contenimento del danno, le newsletter mostrano gli sforzi delle aziende e di come stanno gestendo la pandemia.

Not all hope is lost. It’s just a matter of humanity.

There’s no need to say how the coronavirus has reshaped both our personal and professional lives. Coworking is now mainly digital, internal communications are centred on safety and damage control, newsletters show the brands’ efforts to cope with the pandemic… I mean, how many of us have received emails even from the café we’ve been to that one time on the other side of town just to get some wifi?

Arguably, what made cryptos so successful in the first place is the possibility of having a recognised valuable asset without the hassle of complying with banking and legal regulations.

Many of the readers and investors interested in cryptocurrencies and blockchain do the common mistake of picturing them as the same blur, undefined, structural trading system.

The hype for blockchain and decentralised currencies does not seem to stop.

The Sharia-compliant Islamic financial systems — that is, Islamic Banking — were conceived in the 1970s and are gaining more and more ground in the sector, given their potential to attract a very large number of clients, since Islam is the religion that is spreading fastest in the world.
