僕は十年後も二十年後も、十五歳だった時の事を思い出して胸をかきむしるに違いないんだ。幸福であることがどの様な状況なのかを知った。そのせいで自分のみすぼらしさに途方にくれるだろう。 『百瀬、こっちを向いて』 中田永一 (via strast)

Cat Taxi Posts Disappointing Quarterly Earnings
Kitty Kab, the on demand feline taxi service, reported disappointing quarterly earning this morning.
The company made waves last year when it launched in Portland, OR, named in 2013 as the most dog friendly city in America. Critics were skeptical of the wisdom of launching a cat taxi in a city dominated by canines, but the move paid off. 
"As it turned out, a lot of cats didn’t want to be out alone with all those puppies on the loose, so they’d call a cab," said tech analyst Trish Patel of Business Insider. That early success led to rapid expansion to other cities — San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Atlanta — and an IPO in the fall.
But the very thing that drove success for Kitty Kab initially has been a hindrance to its growth. 
"It was just a mirage," explained Patel. "The large concentration of dogs in Portland increased demand for the taxi service, but in other cities cats don’t want to be driven around.”
Kitty Kab’s user base in cities outside of Portland has stagnated as a result, while marketing costs have skyrocketed, leading to a $12 million shortfall this quarter. 
The Fluffington Post  hears that the company is exploring raising a $20 million round of venture financing to stay afloat, as well as considering a pivot to on-demand catnip delivery.

非社交的で孤独な人も、そうでない人と同じく一人の読者人として尊重される場、それが図書館です。本の前では社交性の有無は問題ではなく、人はみな平等です。そこに「コミュニティ機能」などというものを持ち込めば、図書館の外と同じように確実に疎外が生じます。図書館人はそれをよしとしますか? Twitter / aNmiNreNtaN (via subdub)

多分その空気を作った戦犯の一つを知っています。あれですよ、「機能対応一覧表」。機種を横軸、機能を縦軸に並べて、●/▲/×をつける、アレ。日本人、本当にアレが大好きなんです。アレをやるためだけに、大して変わり映えもしないモデルを複数作ってでかいマトリックス作ってニヤニヤしてるんです。悪意のある書き方なのは本当に申し訳ないけど、私からはどうしてもそうとしか思えないんです。 ニッポンの引き算恐怖症 | 無線にゃん (via gkojax)
