The journey started from the cloud to arriving on the multi-cloud. Nowadays, every IT department in an organization is heading towards the multi-cloud era. Let's first get our heads clear, What is multi-cloud? What is a hybrid cloud? As we are hearing, these two terms are sometimes interchangeable. So multi-cloud is where an organization uses the cloud services from two or more cloud providers, such as the Oracle Cloud, AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. A hybrid cloud is where the organization uses on-premises services, or “private cloud,” and a few from any of the cloud providers – public clouds, such as the Oracle Cloud, AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. Distributed cloud: organizations want to have their own decision and choice for the cloud resources that they want to have. It could be multiple public clouds, or even an Oracle cloud@customer, an AWS outpost, etc. The point is that services will be like a public cloud and managed, and governed by the public cloud vendor. Now the first question that comes to mind is, why multi-cloud? A few areas to think of… Vendor lock-in (in other words -multiple cloud vendors lock in) Data center availability – this is also linked to the compliance requirement that you need to have an in-country data center Utilize the best services from the cloud vendor, who specializes in certain services. Low latency requirements for certain applications and that vendor doesn't have a data center in that region. Price optimization By accident, they opted for multi-cloud (within organizations, the different departments opted for different cloud vendors). Resilience (I need to have a backup site with other cloud providers) The multi-cloud strategy brings several benefits to organizations, however, implementing a multi-cloud also brings challenges, few to mention: Compatibility Increased complexity Security Interconnection between different cloud providers The learning curve for the IT teams (to learn about different cloud providers) Cost estimation and reporting.

Mark Willis discusses his upcoming Distinguished Instructor Short Course, "Distributed acoustic sensing for seismic measurements – what geophysicists and engineers need to know." Geoscientists and engineers are very comfortable using seismic data sets acquired with geophones, hydrophones, and accelerometers because they have a long, well-defined set of standards for acquiring, processing, and interpreting them. However, distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) seismic measurements are rapidly augmenting and, in some cases replacing the data from these conventional tools. In this conversation with host Andrew Geary, Mark helps geoscientists and engineers build intuition and understanding of DAS seismic technology's value, limitations, and applications. Mark also discusses the most common objection to DAS, when DAS is better than conventional seismic acquisition, and tips for someone planning their first DAS seismic survey. Mark will be teaching this course for the first time at IMAGE, and this is a great preview of the valuable, insightful, and helpful tools and resources you will gain from this course.

Economics For Business

Economics For Business

The traditional approaches to the structure and management of firms are becoming barriers to customer value. The Austrian capital theory approach recognizes that all value in the corporation flows to it from the value experiences of customers. Therefore traditional organization design — centralization, hierarchies, divisions, bureaucracy, command-and-control — insofar as they are poorly aligned with customer value actually detract from the value of the firm. There are alternative approaches to business organization, several of which we have highlighted in Economics For Business. One well-articulated alternative is The Flow System (Mises.org/E4B_181_Book). We talk to one of the authors of the concept, Brian Rivera. Key Takeaways and Actionable Insights The first principle of all business organization is the delivery of customer value. The superiority and broad applicability of the Austrian business model emanates from its value-dominant logic. The purpose of business is to facilitate a value experience on the part of the customer. Only value matters, and all else (resources employed, raw materials used, production costs, organization, supplier partnerships, etc.) follows. Austrian capital theory enables managers to identify value drivers (i.e. what resources, raw materials, production costs, organization, partnerships result in the most value for customers). The focus of the Flow System is to deliver the best value to the customer through FLOW: the interconnection of complexity thinking, distributed leadership, and team science. Flow is another term for entrepreneurial judgment. In Brian Rivera's book, The Flow System, flow is described as “a narrative of in-the-moment decision making of judgments”. It is entrepreneurial action and interaction with the environment, irrespective of structure. It's goal-oriented adaptive and collaborative behavior of teams and firms. The Austrian perceptions of the market as a flow, value as a flow and capital as a flow mean that the Austrian business model is perfectly consistent with The Flow System. Mastering complexity thinking is fundamental to implementing the flow system. Many business environments exhibit high variability and uncertainty. We've used the term VUCA to characterize them: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. All business managers and entrepreneurs can benefit from adopting a complexity world-view, and understanding business as a complex system. Complex adaptive systems are open, continuously dynamic, evolving, learning, and responsive to external changes. They can oscillate between order and disorder, they're non-linear and can't be predicted or controlled. Brian Rivera highlights a number of techniques to manage in such an environment, including: Sensemaking: the development of narratives or storytelling to conceptualize the complex environment and develop an appropriate set of mental models. The question to ask is, “What's the story?” — the story that can unite the firm and its partners around a shared understanding and shared purpose. Weak signal detection: in complexity, signals are never clear; uncertainty is the norm and errors are always a possibility. Weak signal detection is simply intensifying the scnning of the environment for insights and noticing more, so that both threats and opportunities can be detected earlier to avoid surprise. Action: the only source of real knowledge about the world is experience, and experience results from action. Therefore, The Flow System emphasizes action — the D and the A in the OODA loop. The Flow System employs a new definition of leadership: distributed leadership. Distributed leadership is described as leadership that extends horizontally, vertically and every place between. The tools of leadership are not structures (such as hierarchy and top-down management) but methods: Psychological safetyActive listeningIntentShared mental modelsBias towards actionCollaborationMentoring. Perhaps the most essential factor is psychological safety among team members. It's a group property — a shared belief in which the team is safe from interpersonal risk taking. Individuals can speak up, take risks, and experiment without fear of criticism or reprisal so long as every action fits within the shared belief framework. There is no command structure, and teams are the building blocks of the organization. There's a new field of team science for collaborative functioning in the workplace. Team science is multi-disciplinary. Teams are necessary for the development of solutions in many problem areas, and the research behind team science has been conducted in many fields (ecology, healthcare, organizational science, psychology and more). A team is a collection of individuals with a shared goal, who interact and are interdependent in their tasks, who have different roles while sharing responsibility for outcomes, and constitute a social entity embedded in a larger system (a business unit or corporation) requiring them to manage relationships across organizational boundaries. A major section of the book The Flow System is devoted to an overview of the current state of team science as it relates to business organizations, covering team size and composition, teamwork, team processes and team transitions, team culture, team effectiveness, and combining teams for multi-team scaling. Here's a sample concerning the functions of shared leadership in a team: Compelling team purpose — exceeding individual goals.Members work jointly to integrate their complementary talent and skills.Outcomes are collective, joint efforts.Members adapt their working approach to each other.Mutual accountability plus individual accountability. Core principles and attributes of The Flow System.

The number of successful consumer applications in the web 3 space is still few and far between. Against all odds, Audius, an open source and decentralized music discovery and community platform was somehow able to strike a chord and gain mainstream adoption. They have racked up 7M monthly listeners and 50,000 artists, including heavy hitters like deadmau5, Nas, Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki and many more. So what exactly is Audius and how were they able to gain so much traction? Initially, it looks just like any other web 2 music discovery and streaming product, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. All data on Audius is open source, which means as a developer you can take the music library and build your own unique music application.Beyond that, listener data is open as well, which means that artists can have unfettered access to their fan base and use it like a CRM. They can create fan clubs, share exclusive streams, but more critically, if a platform like Spotify or Soundcloud goes down or changes their algorithms, artists will still be able to have a direct channel to their listeners. Finally, the governance structure of the Audius community is unique and Robust. Audius the startup is just one small piece of the entire ecosystem. There is also an Audius token, which is managed by the Audius Foundation, and stimulates the economic activities and incentives of the ecosystem. Finally, contribution and decision making is all done by the community in a decentralized manner.ABOUT THE GUESTRoneil Rumburg is co-founder and CEO of Audius, a digital streaming service that connects fans directly with artists and exclusive new music. Audius is fully decentralized, owned and run by a vibrant, open-source community of artists, fans, and developers all around the world.

For anyone concerned about the current global state of Democracy, which should be everyone, Audrey Tang, Taiwan's Digital Minister, may be our greatest hope:“I'm not here to make citizens transparent to government, I'm here to make government transparent to citizens.”She has flipped Big Brother, proving that this very same unprecedented internet connectivity can be harnessed to cultivate and manifest the very best of us as well — connecting instead of isolating, confirming truths instead of spreading lies, distributing power instead of consolidating it.Very much due to Audrey's work, Taiwan shot from 31st to 11th on the Economist's Global Democracy Index to become a “Full Democracy,” and Asia's most advanced democracy. At the same time, the U.S. dropped from 8th to 25th, now a “Flawed Democracy,” also due very much to one man.Here's a foundational story of how she started down this road. During the 2014 Sunflower Revolution in Taipei, students and dissidents peacefully occupied the Taiwan Yuan, or parliament, for 22 days protesting a trade deal with mainland China, or the PRC. Audrey flew in from Silicon Valley, borrowed a laptop, plugged into 300 meters of ethernet cable, and connected over 500,000 citizens and over twenty NGOs in a real-time dialogue towards what she would ultimately call “rough consensus.” The demonstration won the day and resulted in a new trade agreement, very much due to Audrey's remarkable and unprecedented real-time connectivity. The students remained completely peaceful throughout and respectfully cleaned up the parliament before they left, unlike other Congressional occupations of late. Powerful people in Taiwan's conservative government took note of what Audrey was doing, and called her in to talk… and so it began…I've listened to this interview countless times while editing, and I'm still hearing new things, so the odds are she's going to just lose you, both with the technology and her philosophy. So here are two quick shorthands for each.Per the tech: Virtually everything referred to, from Distributed and Polycentric ledgers to Multi-dimensional spaces to reverse accountability assures transparency, and empowers citizens, inspiring openness, real-time action, and the deployment of people's different viewpoints. It all encourages plurality as a way to demonstrate, as she puts it, “our shared values are hiding in plain sight.”     And all her philosophy, from calling herself a “post-gender, conservative anarchist” to the Lao Tzu and Taoist quotes sprinkled through this interview, are about cycling and returning power and voice to citizens, re-energizing the deepest, most fundamental precept of democracy: Power to the People.View our complete show notes here: http://zioncanyonmesa.org/podcast-archive/steer-the-wind-audrey-tang-is-saving-the-worldhttps://oftaiwan.org/social-movements/sunflower-movement/https://g0v.tw/intl/en/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audrey_Tanghttps://theasiadialogue.com/2018/05/23/tsais-second-year-the-emergence-of-non-partisans-in-taiwan/https://wtfisqf.com/?grant=&grant=&grant=&grant=&match=1000https://www.snopes.com/articles/386830/misinformation-vs-disinformation/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadratic_voting#:~:text=Quadratic%20voting%20is%20a%20collective,voting%20paradox%20and%20majority%20rule.

Today's guest is Wil Barnes, CEO, and Co-founder of Jet Protocol. Jet is a borrowing and lending protocol built on the Solana blockchain focused on innovative lending products and cross-chain interest rate arbitrage. Most of the widely used DeFi protocols used up until this point have been built on top of and supported by the Ethereum ecosystem. Jet is ready to take borrowing and lending to the next level using Solana's bleeding edge tech, low transaction costs, speed, and scalability. Users can also look forward to Jet's innovative interest-bearing products, which will be used to create markets on Serum DEX. The goal of Jet is to build a borrowing and lending protocol with market-driven interest rates, instead of the utilization curve-based interest rate models currently seen on Ethereum and Solana. Solana's low fees and high throughput network gives Jet an opportunity to create an interest rate market-making experience that not only matches, but improves upon the centralized experience that everyone is familiar with. Wil is a Blockchain developer, Distributed systems software engineer with years of blockchain and software development experience before Jet at MakerDAO, ConsenSys, Kauri, PwC, and Booz Allen Hamilton; Wil brings immense engineering management and financial expertise to his broader team at Jet. Wil's interests include open finance & geopolitics. We discuss various topics, including Jet, Solana, Ethereum, Maker DAO, the dynamics of debt markets, and much more. We begin our conversation by discussing Wil's background and how he fell down the crypto rabbit hole. Wil shares how it is tough to break into traditional finance, especially when you want to work in the debt markets. He explains without a degree from a prestigious university or having a preexisting relationship; it is virtually impossible to get a job in traditional debt capital markets. He goes on to discuss how this is antithetical to crypto's ethos and how in crypto, he was able to get various opportunities through hard work and merit. We transition and focus our discussion on his time at ConsenSys and Maker. Wil explains how Maker works and how it evolved over time. We discuss the DIA peg mechanism and address the various misconceptions about DAI. Another major conversation topic was bear markets. We discuss how to survive a bear market and how bear markets are for builders. We discussed his journey from working on Ethereum to eventually launching a project on Solana. We discuss the challenges he felt prevented him from building what he envisioned on Ethereum and why Solana was the ideal place to build Jet. We discuss the path to decentralization and the issues blockchains face when scaling. Our final discussion topic centered around Jet. Wil explains the importance of fixed interest rates for debt markets. We touch on the perils of CeFi. We discuss Jet's mission and the future of DeFi.

Verónica Rodríguez Tribaldos, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory In recent years, there has been growing interest in the seismological community for regional characterization and monitoring of subsurface processes at high temporal and spatial resolution, for applications as varied as fault identification, near-surface characterization or hydrological process monitoring. However, it has become evident that the utilization of permanent local or regional seismic networks for these purposes is limited, mostly due to sensor sparsity. The cost of running large-N, long-term temporary experiments is almost prohibitive. Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) re-purposes telecommunication optical fibers as dense arrays of seismic sensors. This developing technology enables recording ground motions for long periods of time across long distances (10’s of km) at high spatial (~1 m) and temporal resolution at frequencies ranging from the mHz to the kHz. Recently, the deployment of this novel sensing technique on existing, unused fiber-optic cable networks, known as dark fiber, has offered an attractive alternative to classical seismological studies, as it facilitates acquisition of high-resolution data at regional scale. However, some challenges still exist before we can fully exploit the capabilities of this technology, the main challenge being the large data volumes derived from these several km-long, high density arrays. In this talk, we will show some examples of using dark fiber DAS for basin-scale characterization and monitoring using ambient seismic noise at a variety of scales in the Sacramento Valley, CA, and present preliminary observations from an ongoing experiment aiming at characterizing geothermal systems in the Imperial Valley, CA. We will also discuss some of the challenges associated with regional, high-resolution characterization using this novel technology and our recent attempts at developing effective data management and processing strategies.

Stephanie Wong and Carter Morgan are back this week learning about Google's Distributed Cloud Edge for telcos with guests Krishna Garimella and DP Ayyadevara. Launched last year, Google Distributed Cloud Edge has benefited companies across many industries. Today, our guests are here to elaborate on how telecommunications companies specifically are leveraging this powerful tool. Because telcos deliver essential services, they tend to create detailed plans for their infrastructure in advance and stick with this setup for many years, DP tells us. Identifying the right tools for their project is vital, and Google has created and improved on many services to aid the telecommunications sector. Contact Center AI, for example, helps with customer service needs. Specifically, our guests elaborate on the modernization of telco networks through managed infrastructure offerings. We learn more about Google Distributed Cloud Edge and the managed hardware and software stack that's included. Container as a service for optimal network function is the first focus of Google in supporting telcos companies with Distributed Cloud and has been used for 5G rollouts. Google has been working behind the scenes to make Kubernetes more telco friendly as well, so that projects are more portable, scalable, and able to leverage Kubernetes benefits easily. Krishna gives us some great real-life examples of telecommunications companies using GDC Edge in areas like virtual broadband networks. In order to dedicate maximum resources to customer workloads, the team chose to keep the Kubernetes control plane in the cloud while worker nodes are at the edge. With superior security protection, minimal service disruption, and more, GDC Edge boasts fleet management as a core capability. In order to continue satisfying telco's needs, Google collaborates with many businesses to grow with changing customer needs. Krishna Garimella Krishna is a technology evangelist who has worked with service providers across the globe in the network and media areas.

Dental students and young dentists, it's a lot of things that we discussed that might stretch your mind a little bit. So if you're new to the world of occlusion, you might have to listen to it a couple of times, you have to hit the books, you have to speak some mentors.

John is a Partner and Co-Founder of Mazarine Ventures. Mazarine is an impact investor backing young technology companies with innovations that address some aspects of water risk, including quality and quantity.  When you're working in the Water Industry, it is tempting to go for broad quotes like "Water is Life." Sure, that's true. But it might be a bit too general of a statement to be translated into concrete business. That's why John and his founding team at Mazarine have been clear from Day Zero when they wrote their investment thesis: in the Age of Climate Change and its extreme events, galloping urbanization, or increased water scarcity, water is a risk. New technologies can help our World mitigate that risk, and this, in all the dimensions of the ESG framework. Hence, speeding up the time-to-market of these emerging solutions induces an impact, turning Mazarine Ventures into an Impact Investor. In my conversation with John, we'll explore how that twist in the definition of water-related challenges and opportunities translates into concrete steps and how Mazarine articulates its actions from its Labs to its Fund I, Fund II, and Bluehouse investment funds.  You'll get to understand why the exit is fully part of the impact process, which type of capital is the most important at which stage of a company's development, and how Mazarine ambitions to find entrepreneurs that have been to the future and came back.  There's much more to unpack in this week's conversation with John, so we'll swiftly take off.

Heat pumps are the hot new thing in climate tech right now. The fastest way we can slash emissions out of the economy is to electrify as much as possible. And the fastest way to electrify is to deploy heat pumps. If we want to decarbonize our homes quickly, we need to start replacing existing HVAC systems. A good place to start: installing heat pumps instead of conventional central air conditioners. Turns out, the cost of making a two-way heat pump instead of an air conditioning unit is only a few hundred dollars per unit. What if the government incentivized manufacturers to make the switch?

Is this the long-awaited market correction that never quite materialized during the bull market of the last 13 years? And what does it mean for climate tech? In this episode, Shayle talks to Saloni Multani, a partner at Galvanize Climate Solutions and former chief financial officer for Joe Biden's 2020 campaign. Shayle and Saloni place the current moment in historical context.

We hear a lot about “vibe” these days: Vibe check, a shift in the vibe, catching a vibe, don't kill the vibe. With the help of scholars and researchers Ellen Dissanayake, Connie Bainbridge, and Maria Witek we'll define this feeling by drawing a fun, evolutionary line from the sweet sounds of baby talk and lullabies, all the way to adults vibing to the music they love. To put our findings to the test, musicians Phil Cook & Ally J help Saleem write a new lullaby, and DJ Zephyr Ann & DJ Rang demonstrate the power of experiencing “distributed emotion” through music. This is the last episode of the season but we'll be back a little down the road.

We're more than three months into Russia's invasion of Ukraine and you don't have to look far beyond your local gas station to see the global impact – the average price of a gallon of gasoline topped $5 this week.  The conflict has complicated the flow of energy at a time when supply chains were already jumbled up because of COVID. But it's not just oil. The war is leaving its mark on all kinds of commodities – including the global supplies of minerals and metals. Geopolitical shifts are causing high spikes in prices of lithium and nickel, two key components of the lithium-ion batteries used in electric cars. But this supply mess could actually be boosting a positive trend in the battery space: Battery recycling.  This week: Batteries are a pillar of the zero-carbon economy. But are they sustainable? And will technical advancements and geopolitical shifts alter the battery-based economy for the better? Guests:  Julian Spector is a Senior Reporter with Canary Media. Check out his latest report on battery recycling. And you can access all of Canary's recycling week coverage here.   The Carbon Copy is a co-production of Post Script Media and Canary Media.

In this episode, Dave and Jamison answer these questions: I'm currently working at a FAANG in Europe, and seriously underpaid. I recently got an offer from a US startup (Series C funded) to work remotely. Two big pluses: I'm gonna get a 2 times pay bump, and I can finally work remotely (and travel across Europe since they support work from anywhere, now that COVID restrictions are relaxed, something I wanted to do for years). Two problems: Their tech stack is Ruby on Rails, something that no “big” companies use so I may not be considered seriously because of last X years of working on a not-so-famous tech, and current tech environment screams of a recession, so I'm safer at a big company than some startup. Do you think 2.5 years in a FAANG provides enough of credibility to take care of both of these problems if things go south? Any other factors I should consider when moving from FAANG to a remote startup job? So I've been working at this big-tech company for around 4 years and working as a mid-level engineer. I recently got approached by a Google recruiter for L5 or Senior engineer position. I've led a few projects in my current company, but I don't consider myself a “senior” level. That and the fact that I've worked majorly in Frontend and the role I'm gonna be getting interviewed for is Full-stack (interview rounds seem to be focused on Distributed systems mostly). I've two questions: Is this some dirty trick in recruitment I gotta be aware of? I hear about downlevel a lot, but never “uplevel”. If say I do prepare like crazy and pass the interviews, do you think I may not have any luck with the team matching Google does? Like no team may wanna hire a “junior” senior? Love the show!

Five years ago, Puerto Rico's grid was decimated by Hurricane Maria. Out of the destruction, many hoped that Puerto Rico's new grid could be built around solar and batteries – replacing centralized gas, coal, and oil plants connected with remote transmission lines. That's not how the recovery played out. Today, Puerto Rico still relies heavily on centralized fossil fuels. And the island's utility is still facing long blackouts and accusations of mismanagement. But a bottom-up movement has emerged supporting tens of thousands of rooftop solar and battery installations. These systems are being installed with minimal support from the government.  Will this distributed energy help make Puerto Rico more resilient? Or will the island lock in more fossil fuels? We'll speak with Canary Media reporter Maria Gallucci, who just got back from a reporting trip there. Read her feature. The Carbon Copy is a co-production of Post Script Media and Canary Media.
