About Words From Web Worker

Back in 2004, new terms were being coined as we tried to understand this phenomenon and its participants: “virtual workforce,” “web workers,” “freelance economy.” It was enormously disruptive — both to how work got done and to workers’ lifestyles. Words From Web Worker(WFWW) was started to address all of that and share our views on these trends and take advantage of the software to find ways to work more efficiently and get more done with technology.

At WFWW, we’re quite content to be the odd blog out.
We don’t have a fancy logo to go alongside our name in the press. We don’t make the same ad deals or shake the same hands as everyone else.

And all of this is fine by us.

We’re independently spirited, fiercely unconventional people who do things a little differently. Where others may value the bottom line, we value—well—values. We answer to no one but you. And we don’t operate this way for the fun of it, even though it is incredibly fun. We operate this way because we believe it’s the right thing to do.
We believe in principle over profit margin.
We believe that secrecy is trumped by honesty. And personal interest by community.
We believe that the web is more cared for than owned. But most importantly, We believe in you.

We’re all about making technology meaningful for everyone, with subscribers from many backgrounds: marketers, lifehackers, high school teachers, software engineers, designers, students, and more.

Have some questions? Feel free to get in touch with me directly -- I love hearing from people.

Bachpan se bada koi school nahi, curiosity se badi koi teacher nahi.
There is no greater school than childhood and no greater teacher than curiosity.

Parle G(the largest selling brand of biscuits in the world) asks parents to encourage their child's curiosity and creativity in its campaign called 'Kal ke genius'. While the song has an '80s feel, it is the soul of the film and is written, sung and composed very well. The song aptly encapsulates the philosophy of the campaign. It is urging people to let their kids be just kids and let them explore if they are curious.

Parle-G's Glucose biscuits always evoke a sense of nostalgia. The ad in a nice way talks about the increasing parental control and societal pressures that make kids these days spend more time in study classes than learning through exploring new things. Curiosity is actually the best teacher. Unfortunately, it is just the kind of a thing which parents often discourage. In fact, we keep stopping children fro…

How automating feedback with AI powered conversations can aid decision making in real-time

How automating feedback with AI powered conversations can aid decision making in real-time

All systems need feedback to learn, improve and course correct. The autopilot functionality in driverless cars is a perfect example. Sensors measure the desired speed and position of the vehicle — among other indicators — and send that data to control systems which adjust accordingly.

Gathering rich, organic feedback on a continuous basis is necessary for managers and regulators to make informed decisions. Robust feedback means honoring people’s authentic voices, rather than shoehorning them into a multiple choice format. It means taking the time to find out how many others share what may be a surprising opinion (to management) or understanding of a situation. It means preserving minority opinions. It means listening well.

But getting rich feedback from a population usually starts with in-depth interviews of a representative sample. Surveys are then created based on the interviews to see which idea…

Email tip: Read Once, Then Decide

The most unproductive thing you can do when it comes to e-mail is to read the same messages over & over again. This has the effect of doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling your workload. Instead, you should read each message once, then decide what to do with it. Read-decide. Read-decide. This is the pattern of effective e-mail processing. The goal is to end up with an empty inbox daily or, at the very least, every couple of days.

According to author David Allen (Getting Things Done), you need to first decide if the message is actionable. There are only two possible responses to this: yes or no. If the answer is no, it is a Non-Actionable Message. You then have three possible choices:

- Delete the message. It is no longer needed. Spam, most ads, & many e-mail newsletters fall into this category.

- File it for later reference: It may be useful later. However, you don’t want to let it sit in your inbox consuming psychic energy. Instead drag it into a folder. Personally, I drag eve…

Google Assistant: There is no better search engine of answering

Google has brought a powerful set of data tools to the home assistant category that it’s going to be hard for Amazon Echo to match.

Unlike today’s search box, the Google Assistant learns about you from your behavior. It will know you’re a vegetarian, so won’t recommend steakhouses for dinner. It will understand context: If you’ve just bought Golden State Warriors tickets, the next time you mention Curry, it will know you’re talking about Steph and not Thai curry.

80% of those polled said their own job will "probably" or "definitely" still exist at that time

80% of those polled said their own job will "probably" or "definitely" still exist at that time

​Most Americans Think Robots Will Take All the Jobs, Just Not Theirs. Some two-thirds of the Americans believe that in fifty years, robots and computers will "probably" or "definitely" be performing most of the work currently carried out by humans.

While we might believe automation is a threat to the workforce at large, individually, we seem mostly confident that we're irreplaceable. This natural strain of narcissism could create a blind spot, enabling workforce automation to take us by surprise.

Younger people (ages 18-29) and people who work in the public sector (including educators and government employees) were both slightly more likely to believe their job is secure. Both groups were also slightly more skeptical of workforce automation in general.
