    06. Human Res…ponses

    To make any project come true, “to do stuff” – as Carlo puts it – you need loads of things: money, time, knowledge but most importantly….you need a team! And as natural as it is for all of us, getting that team among your immediate friends circle might not be that bright idea after all. And once you have a team, growing it might be the highest-rewarding challenge you’ll haver get to face!















    As this is a really dense topic, this time around we have more notes to include other than just links.







    Reid Hoffman on how to Hire For Culture Fit. – YoutubeTeam Management – some take away:







    * Having a team is essential in any endeavor, think politics, think an ngo, think everything in which it’s up to you to take the initiative. (think of creating a platform rather than a standalone environment)* HR is both a fascinating challenge and something you never spend enough time on; it usually becomes painfully evident once things are not gearing up the way they should with your new team mate.* The hard task is understanding when it’s right to have that gut feeling or simply the other person’s mindset is different than yours.







    Some more keywords:







    * Culture definition comes before hiring;* You should really hire only when “it hurts” – Hiring is a complex process to manage any time;* It’s ok to have frank conversations with your peers;* You’ll need a Blueprint of your team as well, before you go on the look out

    05. Digital Sovereignty for and by dummies

    The World Wide Web is becoming a National Wide Web, were stark differences begin to emerge between ecosystems and “block” in our Digital Life. Digital Sovereignty has in China its main champion, with several Countries beginning to follow its example of tight control over technologies development. This creates huge consequences in the Economical, Political and Strategical spheres for everyone. Listen to our podcast to discover some hands-on examples!















    As this is a really dense topic, this time around we have more notes to include other than just links.







    The cybercrime resolution at the UN, seen as a Milestone for D.S. – AxiosWorld Internet Conference – WikipediaNew Cross-Border Opportunities in China – SCMPDigital Sovereignty has larger implications:







    * Economical: it’s the responsible of the beginning of the digital service economy in China (800+ mil internet users) where simply inferior – at the time – web services had no competition from foreign developed once, except for those that accepted Govt. requests of data access -> Quote data about the worth of the Chinese SV.* Freedom of information: when a service is good enough, quite simply, the user won’t look for something else outside his/her bubble. Almost no need for a VPN. Besides VPN are controlled too. (China’s pragmatism over foreign services)* Further incremented by the ecosystem wars launched by Trump: Huawei now developing it’s own app ecosystem with its own sourced hardware, as a total alternative to Google’s or Microsoft. As a matter of fact it doesn’t just affect the web: Digital Sovereignty includes HW and SW alike -> here’s why everybody’s hot on 5g* It’s an immense tool for soft power for the foreign service: from digital fostering programs, to technological assets released over the so-called BRI (belt road initiative). * It has a poster-event which catalyzes every year major players (Allen, Google, MS, Murdoch): the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen which ironically offers unmitigated access to western services, for a time.







    Offers several opportunities too, mostly related to arbitrage:







    * Not everyone is willing to pay the price to access a huge market, leaving few “foreign bodies” to do the work of architecture re-conversion so that services and products can be sold in  china and countries alike. See eCommerce, see  products import, see faster market testing and market driven innovation.* Special economic zones are created (not exactly a plus), where restriction are less pervasive for foreign business to test the water before plunging
