A FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE MONTH FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: ´´ Nothing Mr. Gilder says or writes is ever delivered at anything less than the fullest philosophical decibel.. . Mr. Gilder sounds less like a tech guru than a poet, and his words tumble out in a romantic cascade.´´ ´´Google´s algorithms assume the world´s future is nothing more than the next moment in a random process. George Gilder shows how deep this assumption goes, what motivates people to make it, and why it´s wrong: the future depends on human action.´´ - Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies and author of Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future The Age of Google, built on big data and machine intelligence, has been an awesome era. But it´s coming to an end. In Life after Google, George Gilder-the peerless visionary of technology and culture-explains why Silicon Valley is suffering a nervous breakdown and what to expect as the post-Google age dawns. Google´s astonishing ability to ´´search and sort´´ attracts the entire world to its search engine and countless other goodies-videos, maps, email, calendars....And everything it offers is free, or so it seems. Instead of paying directly, users submit to advertising. The system of ´´aggregate and advertise´´ works-for a while-if you control an empire of data centers, but a market without prices strangles entrepreneurship and turns the Internet into a wasteland of ads. The crisis is not just economic. Even as advances in artificial intelligence induce delusions of omnipotence and transcendence, Silicon Valley has pretty much given up on security. The Internet firewalls supposedly protecting all those passwords and personal information have proved hopelessly permeable. The crisis cannot be solved within the current computer and network architecture. The future lies with the ´´cryptocosm´´-the new architecture of the blockchain and its derivatives. Enabling cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether, NEO and Hashgraph, it will provide the Internet a secure global payments system, ending the aggregate-and-advertise Age of Google. Silicon Valley, long dominated by a few giants, faces a ´´great unbundling,´´ which will disperse computer power and commerce and transform the economy and the Internet. Life after Google is almost here. For fans of ´´Wealth and Poverty,´´ ´´Knowledge and Power,´´ and ´´The Scandal of Money.´´

As product managers, we all want to become better at what we do. However, sometimes we can find ourselves in a rut: we´ve solved the immediate problems, our product is doing well, and we´ve just lost that drive that we need in order to reach the next level. This is when the power of competition comes in. We all like a good challenge. When we are faced with a situation in which we might not be the best, or we might not know exactly what we should do, that´s when we can become our best. What You´ll Find Inside: To beat the competition, product managers have to do some homework How Yahoo product managers are kicking Google’s butt Case study: what to do when a large competitor shows up on your block How product managers should go about doing business researchCompetitive situations for product managers can take on a number of different forms. They can be as simple as placing ourselves into a setting in which we are called on to network with others. Maybe it´s as simple as challenging us to pay closer attention to what´s going on - easy to say, hard to do. Mastering competition requires us to become experts at a lot of different skills. These include managing other people, finding mentors, and continuing our education. Throw in things like learning to stop multitasking and how to create an effective resume and all of a sudden you have some fairly challenging tasks ahead of you. The good news is that every product manager can rise to meet these challenges. No matter if it´s learning how to find your next product manager job or how to deal with a situation in which you´ve been passed over for a promised promotion, your ability to deal with the competition that comes along with your product manager job will be the key to your long term success. 1.

´I remember how well I liked to turn the pages of my childhood atlas and travel the world to find out where countries and cities were. But there was never anything about why the maps were created - or who drew them. Theatre of the World was my big chance to tell the stories of all those men and women map makers whose amazing work deserves to be celebrated.´ (Thomas Reinertsen Berg)Beautifully written and rich in detail, Theatre of the World reignites our curiosity with the world both ancient and modern. Before you could just put finger to phone to scroll Google Maps, in advance of the era of digital mapping and globes, maps were being constructed from the ideas and questions of pioneering individuals. From visionary geographers to heroic explorers, from the mysterious symbols of the Stone Age to the familiar navigation of Google Earth, Thomas Reinertsen Berg examines the fascinating concepts of science and worldview, of art and technology, power and ambitions, practical needs and distant dreams of the unknown. 1.
