Facebook’s logo problems
Facebook recently announced a new pseudo-cryptocurrency, called Libra, along with a digital wallet service, Calibra, that will launch in 2020.
The internet was quick to point out the similarities between the Calibra logo and the logo of an online bank, Current. A comparison made easier because both logos were created by the same San Fransisco design agency, Character.
The whole situation is somewhat baffling.
The Calibra logo is meant to be a tilde and Libra has adopted a stacked tilde, ≋, as its currency symbol. As Fast Company points out, “using a tilde in front of a number implies its approximate value. So the logo strongly implies that the value of the currency Facebook is selling us on is uncertain in nature.”

They sell a ton of stuff, but to think of Amazon as a retailer is really to miss the nature of Jeff Bezos' ambitions and what this company is really about. Amazon is interested in controlling the underlying infrastructure of the economy. One big piece of that is the online platform. What has happened now is that most people when they go to buy something online, they don't start at a search engine like they used to. They don't go to Google and put in a product and come up all sorts of different retailers, including Amazon. They just start at Amazon.
