A Tech Riff on Incorporating Drones into our Lives. 

we go again,

A tech riff on incorporating drones into our I’ve been sitting on this understanding for quite some time now. So I appreciate drone tech (& innovations in general) so I decided to ponder on what it would actually take to incorporate drones into commerce and have them viable for retail. This is what I came up with.
First there will need to be some air traffic control in case of theft and drones knocking into each other. You see amazon alone does around 1.6million deliveries a per day let alone all the other parcel delivery companies out there. The air space will be filled with a number of drones collateral damage and shrinkage needs to be kept to a minimum so ‘parcel patrol’ is warranted – Receive your parcel will be significantly quicker depending on weight – something that also needs to be factored, the weight of a parcel and it’s contents must have a limit in weight or be contained in such a way that it will never drop. Because at 100m in the air the drop of a 5kg let alone a 30 or 50kg parcel will do significant damage. Another thing and the most intriguing for me on this point is. Routes, just like a commercial aircraft has routes so would these drones as well as controller hubs and communication devices. It will be quite the spectacle to analyse what would be the legal minimum for a drone to have to be used for retail.
Second point being the architecture. This is the reason I even started thinking about this and the most interesting part. The whole landscape of the architecture across the world needs to change. A fair majority of the population in major cities live in massive apartment complexes. This means enclosed spaces. There are a couple ways to go about this, create platforms for drones to be able to drop in a specific apartment. Get drones to go through the entrance like all normal human traffic. Or the most considered one in my mind have a reception depot at the top of most buildings – This one idea here will indeed create millions of jobs as respective parcel personnel would have to be hired, a significant amount of construction will have to be done for “parcel ports” to be created on top of buildings.
This covers much of my thinking on how I believe it will go down. The last one would be law consideration because all in drones are a very futuristic idea and will create a massive amount of tech jobs and business opportunities. For – and it a big ask – the government create law & consideration way out my expertise for the construction for most of these things for the sake of commercial viability. Because just as much as it is dangerous how I see it is that a closest step towards the next frontier of innovation that will happen within the next ten years.

For the Culture

Being raised by Hip-Hop and seeing the different artist grow and develop through my development as a person. Literally growing up with these artists and learning living life vicariously through them I have seen the Rise & Fall Pain & Profits of success, fame, celebrations, and the vehement criticisms of artists. Of all genres encompassing Rap and Art (Self Development & Self Actualisation)from the past 3 decades of my existence.

The boom of the internet and transformation into social networking bought an even higher criticism of artist along with a wider spread group think, This is ultimately bad; This is ultimately good. Putting my take on things I’ve seen that people the average person is influenced by these so called “Influencers”. The exchange and repartee of people over social networks people just love to shit on art. Now me with my just serious view slightly witty and creatively endowed wordplay I feel my opinion matters on these subjects. Yes. I feel it and no one else needs to be involved with this opinion. I am happy being the person out there on my own “Banging” for an artist that I love can’t get enough of and just don’t  talk about the ones I feel need more time to breathe. My self-proclaimed ability to pick out talent and A&R is just one of those things that I play about with but can’t do anything about so in me deciding to use this platform to share what I love why not talk about the creatives that catch my eye and impact thought. I have seen many artist that I have loved in their early stages from Drake & Weekend in the late 2000’s to Migos & Chance The Rapper of today, Lil Uzi, XXXTENTACION the list goes on.

My self-proclaimed ability to pick out talent and A&R is just one of those things that I play about with but can’t do anything about so in me deciding to use this platform to share what I love why not talk about the creatives that catch my eye and impact thought. I have seen many artist that I have loved in their early stages from Drake & Weekend & Kendrick in the late 2000’s to Migos & Chance The Rapper of today, maybe just maybe I can put something in people’s minds as artists’ to watch or look out for. Also, I will be looking at ARTIST Creative Directors, Sculptors, Painters, and Artisans of the like that work with the  Physical realm who catch my eye hip hop influenced or not shine, however, dim my light is right now, is well deserved whenever it gets to me. I have love of other people in creative fields so why not give them whatever I can give them too, I would love to be suggested people, but, for now, it’s just me.

Writing this there have got to be blogs that do this already but I don’t write for them haven’t heard of them nor have they seen my writing to do such things. So I’ll have it, I have got many artist that I am looking at and listening to already so there is a great base for me to at least start. There is also the thought of Albums I listen to where I know in the old climate they used to let them breathe so there is a flavor in their eyes to talk about the work as a full body which is the sound of something I love to let an album cook and sit with it to listen in all moods let the albums “cook” to at least to be able to give myself a solid mindstate to write about this thing that people call abstract and artsy. ‘Frank Ocean – Blond‘, ‘Solange Knowles – A Seat At The Table‘, ‘Chance The Rapper – Coloring Book‘. To again name a few of the people whose work took me a while to understand.  Part of the repertoire of things that the industry force love or just haven’t clearly depict (to me) what the thing they made truly meant to me as a listener.

I, myself take after Will Durant in his essay ‘A Shameless Worship of Heroes‘ where he spoke only of greatness and propped the people up as they needed to be. The only difference would be these guys are alive and I can give Just do’s not being lost in the stew of the industry to be nice for the sake of it. These are things I truly like and enjoy to listen to, looking at, and people whose works I really enjoy.

So this has been

A Thought: MICRO-INFLUENCER

We go again,

What I want to talk about isn’t a new thing, it’s not an astounding thing, it’s just something that exists. And exist in many forms. The micro-influencer is a cultural icon and must be applauded for their placement and strategic influence in the social space. Whatever you like on Facebook, retweet on Twitter, or reblog on Tumblr it is because a micro-influencer allowed you to see it.

Just like one of my favourite orators, Pulitzer Prize-winning Will Durant, this is a shameless worship of heroes, a light on these social heroes that stand high above the rest with their newsworthy exploits, like how they are literally exploited by “True Media” & “Real News”. Such big media outlets are not fast enough to actually pick up on such stories as these men women and trans people.

In a space where there is cultural relevance, there is a micro-influencer in the wing to cross the ball into the box for these misguided behemoths. All trends were made and given to the youth by the youth, when you’re of the old guard respect and play your position and listen to what the youth tell you.

The youth create, good or bad in your opinion it is a fact it was the cause of the old guard it is that way. You see descent and decay it was the cause of the old guard. Greatness and Potential, the old guard. The micro-influencer sheds light on them all, and when you have a cluster of them together the effect is Virality. It is a simple fact that a few or more “Mavens” (in the words of Malcolm Gladwell) have the potential to create phenomenon so much so quality is only a matter of taste.

For what it’s worth I find it all beautiful as a 20SMTHNG, the potential of my generation’s ability to connect across continents. Simply astounding and can’t wait to see where it goes. As long as the people’s media lives so do the micro-influencer.
