The rule of law

 I can't imagine a society without laws. There is no such thing in the modern world. But it is even harder to imagine a prosperous society without fair laws and trusted system.

This is how big organizations work as well. The HR are not your friends; they are here to protect the senior management and the company. So when you want to make a change or to report a problem, usually you will be the one to be blamed.

No wonder why most of the company's defects and problems are found by end users or fraudulence entities.

Can we change that and can we make a fair system where people will be truly encouraged to report misconducts?

This is something we still need to see. There are many examples of organizations that have an ethics department, just to be fired when they were doing too good job.

So next time when AI organization or big media site tells you they comply with ethical standards, first see who are the people who enforce those standards and you might be for a huge surprise.

The rule of law might be there, but the law might be not the fair law you and I expect to see.

To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
