Asteroids that Hit Earth last 20yrs - Threat/Opportunity

Map showing the bolide events from 1994 to 2013
Picture: All asteroids that hit earth - 1m-20m in size. Nasa, Near Earth Object Program.

Roughly 600 object during 20years = 30/yr. With better sensors, roughly 1/week. Dark matter?

An Opportunity

Picture: Planetary Resources see this as an opportunity, now when it's legal to mine.

Profit Influencing Factors: 
1. Is it Technically feasible?, 
2. How much will it Cost/Risk (spread)?, and
3. Expected Revenues/Risk (spread)? 
=Profitable return ?

Quantum computer now possible

A team of Australian engineers has proven -- with the highest score ever obtained -- that a quantum version of computer code can be written, and manipulated, using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip. The advance removes lingering doubts that such operations can be made reliably enough to allow powerful quantum computers to become a reality.

Scientific search engine & Visualisations - an normal Saturday on Internet

A normal Saturday on internet, published just for fun ;-) ...
Here is where it started (found via FutureTimeline, from my Feedly feed)

semantic scholar ai search engine 2015 technology
Picture: Search engine for Research&Development papers - built on Machine Learning Technology

Picture: Search word: "Business Model". Similar conclusions (pdf), but not yet there.

Picture: Semantic clusters - Dimensions, Measures, ... you understand, right ;-)

Conclusion: We'll get a Linguistic-convergence + a Unified Language either by general (is so good it can be used for several cases), or specific (optimised for specialised case). A function that serves a special purpose. Example; a hammer has a specific function + it include a bi-directional function (do and undo) - which is essential for all progress; political parties, trends, + and -,

Subjective = value by an evaluator precedes the Objective = un-valuated.

Note: You save the Unified Language components in ppt (under download).

Picture: Shares (continuous/distribution or non-c.), Compares, and Relations (incl. co-relations + to time). Almost right.

Charts can be classified into
1. 'Shares/Parts of a Group': that can be non-continuous (left), or continuous/sequential (-->distribution). Shares always compares, and usually benefits from being ranked, and accumulated (pareto).
A second Group can be Overlayed (continuous or non-continuous); like a Target, or a Years.

2. Relations: means input-output relation; that is algorithmic/processual. The purpose is to visualise a correlation.

Colors can be used, but are somewhat limited; try do a subtraction (grey75% -grey50% = grey 25%).

There are several type of engineers; process (mtrl, money, time, info, ...) - the fundamental dimensions/measures.
They all process something for a specific purpose. Logistics - the movement, process, efficiently (at low "cost"), effectively (at high revenue).

Picture: Fundamental Physical units (dimensions/measures) - how about Fundamental (business) Value units.

The reason the Business Model Canvas is wrong, is because it doesn't contain the basic business dimensions and measures.

Picture: The Business-model and the Data/information-model must coincide. 

It's closer to right than wrong - like the first map-makers of the world - but still not right. For instance Yes relationships are important but not just with the customer . and it's definitely not one of the basic dimensions in a company.
