What are some of the best skills for the future?

Tänkvärt om framtida arbetsmarknaden!

Answer by Auren Hoffman:

You want to optimize for skills that computers are unlikely to do in the future as it is no fun competing with a computer. 
Of course, it is really hard to predict what computers will be good at in the future, but there are things that are more likely than others and you should stay away from those.  For instance, there seems a good possibility that computers will be pretty good at driving cars, doing accounting, flying planes, understanding radiology, document discovery, and more.  So best to stay away from these fields unless you plan on being one of the best people in these fields (where you become the person helping to write the software for the computers). 
It seems less likely that computers will (at least in the next 50 years) take over sales, creative disciplines, etc.  So if you can choose, you should optimize for something as far away from computers' strength.
One broad skill that will likely be very good to have in any profession is the ability to work well with computers as a team.  If we look at the winners of Freestyle Chess tournaments (where teams of people + computers compete with one another), the teams that win are usually made up of good (but not great) chess players using cheap computer programs that run on normal laptops.  These teams beat the grandmasters + amazing computational computers because the grandmasters are not as adept at working closely with computers. 
If you are going to college now and deciding on the right major that will help you in the future, there are a lot of great choices but I would suggest Philosophy and would not suggest something like accounting.

Allt fler kvinnor blir ”gamers”

SvD skriver idag (bakom betalväggen) om att spelvärlden är på väg att bli mindre mansdominerad. Det bygger på en studie från Göteborgs universitet av bland annat Anna Maria Szczepanska som intervjuas i artikeln.

Med en vidare definition av ”gamer” där även spelandet på mobiler och surfplattor räknas in blir spelandet en mer allmän företeelse och kvinnliga spelare är inte längre i minoritet. Anna Maria Szczepanska menar att detta kommer att skapa ett tryck på spelindustrin att skapa fler spel för kvinnor och därmed ökad efterfrågan på kvinnliga spelutvecklare. Det är goda nyheter ur ett jämnställdhetsperspektiv men speglar samtidigt hur fler och fler riskerar ett osunt eller överdrivet spelbeteende på gränsen mot datorspelsberoende. Min förhoppning är att denna breddning leder till att vi så småningom lär oss kontrollera och hantera frestelserna på ett sunt sätt.

What does the average YouTuber with 1 million subscribers earn?

Det är lätt att charmeras av ungdomar som spenderar mycket tid på nätet. Vem vet – de kanske blir en framgångsrik youtuber. I detta Quorasvar får vi veta mer om hur Youtubeekonomin fungerar. 20 kronor per 1000 tittare. Ekonomisk succé vid en miljon följare. Men vägen dit är lång och mödosam.

Answer by Ryan Stevens:

There's a website called SocialBlade.
You can easily enter the name of a YouTube channel and see the real estimations.
Generally, on YouTube you make around $1.5 – $4/1,000 views. When you hit 1,000,000 subscribers, at least 10% will go immediately to check out your new uploads.
If the topic is a trending one (such as tech reviews), then even more than 30-40% can go check your videos. What's even more interesting, the more viewers you have, the higher the videos will rank and so you get more exposure, more views, new subscribers, and thus, more money.
YouTube pays from their ads and to receive payment you will need a Google AdSense account, too.
Assuming that 10% of your subscribers check out your videos and assuming that you earn $2/1,000 views, a channel with 1,000,000 subscribers should earn  ~ $200/new video.
Keep in mind that when you have 1 Million subscribers, the growth of the channel is insane. I've been following a guy – MKBHD (Marques Brownlee) since he was a kid. He uploaded nearly 100 before he started to make any money and progress. He worked and worked until he made his fist 100,000 subscribers. From there, things grew fast to 1,000,000 within 1 or 2 years and from there…. within another 2 years he grew to 4,000,000+.
After you hit 1,000,000 subscribers, you will make another 20,000-50,000 each month organically if you upload at least 1-2 videos per week.
The boom in earnings will come from Amazon Associates if you review products (anything that can be bought from Amazon). For instance, tech reviewers (such as MKBHD) make tons of money by reviewing flagship smartphones, tablets, laptops, accessories and then including affiliate links to Amazon.
Think like this – the new iPhone is released – 2,000,000 views and affiliate links to all the versions. He makes $2,000 just from Ads and assuming that 0.1% of viewers purchase the iPhone (which costs $700 – $800 on Amazon) will convert into 2,000 customers, so 2,000 x $800 = $1,600,000 in revenue from which the tech reviewer gets 8% commission = $128,000.
Take a closer look below
I suppose that most of such YouTubers aren't seeking for views, they're seeking for traffic to send them elsewhere (an affiliate link, a blog, an email list, etc.).
The short answer is = between $2,000 and $100,000 / month, depending on what you do and what you record.
If you want to learn more about money, productivity and you have some time to read my 20 page booklet, check out my blog – EntrepreneurEnhanced. It's not the fanciest one (it's at the beginning), but it has lots of useful information. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
