Ollie Robinson inspired by Flintoff’s Ashes tourists, but with a different result

Ollie Robinson caught the Ashes bug after Andrew Flintoff’s England team around Australia as a teenager, but is convinced that he can deliver a different result this time.

Robinson, who is inked to take the field in the series opener in Brisbane on Wednesday, took an extended Christmas break from his private school Canterbury to travel Down Under for the 2006-07 game.

A 5-0 whitewash may not have been the score he hoped for, but the journey proved a formative experience for young Robinson, who was particularly drawn to Flintoff’s combative style.

Fifteen years later, he will be the man in the middle at The Gabba and is optimistic about the prospects of getting the urn back.

“I haven’t been here to play before, but I saw the test match here when I was 13,” he said.

“That was quite special and I was lucky to be here. There were moments in that series that I remember, I think ‘Freddie’ got 80 one day (in Sydney) and I remember thinking he was just taking it to the Aussies.

“Growing up, that’s what I wanted to do and how I wanted to play my cricket. It’s really inspiring to see that as a youngster and now hopefully try to emulate how Flintoff and other players did. I feel like we’re definitely the underdogs, but we can take the urn home.”

Though a five-cap rookie, Robinson has already proved his quality with 28 wickets at an average of 19.60 and also showed in a highly charged run against India this summer that he is no shrinking fiddle on the international stage.

He was happy to exchange a few words with Virat Kohli’s men and it looks like he won’t back down in the coming weeks either.

“I don’t think, as a person, I could keep my head down if I tried,” he explained.

“They are just home fans here too, so we have to be prepared for them to come at us hard and the challenge will be tough.

“I’m definitely going to try and get under their skin and kind of upset them, basically batters and bowlers. If I can get them out of their rhythm we’ll be winning, so it’s something you’ll definitely see and hopefully we’ll come out on top.”

I’m definitely going to try to get under their skin and shake them up a bit. The Aussie chat is pretty atrocious.

Asked about the attention he expected in return, he was no longer conciliatory.

“The Aussie chat is pretty awful if I’m honest,” he added.

Both teams have had little meaningful training, with continued rain in Queensland reducing the warm-up schedule to a few chaotic sessions rather than the scheduled multi-day matches.

But while England have had a typically busy year of test cricket at home and abroad, Australia have not put on their Baggy Greens since their defeat at home to India in January. With their multi-format players also arriving at the last possible moment due to their win at the recent T20 World Cup, Robinson believes England have their noses up for when it comes to preparedness.

“Obviously it wasn’t ideal preparation, it was tough, but as a group we feel like we made it with what we were given,” he said.

“We feel in a good place and we have an edge over the Aussies, which is the most important. They were at the World Cup (final) and in quarantine so they are probably a few weeks behind us. We feel we have a good job in us since we’ve been here and hopefully that will give us an edge in the first test. ”

Facebook’s ‘meta-existential’ hub for survival – TechCrunch

Published

Facebook beschuldigd van het blijven controleren van tieners voor advertentietargeting - TechCrunch

Facebook is fighting for its life, but it won’t be regulatory pressure that will kill it. Zuckerberg relies heavily on “metaverse” as a lifeboat to rescue a dwindling user base. He has long known that Facebook’s future is rooted in owning a large hardware platform.

Facebook’s brand pivot to “Meta” last week is the third round of a multi-billion dollar game of balance roulette. Let’s see if consumers adopt and realize it – all of Meta/Facebook is at stake.

As an investor in VR and AR since 2016, I find it cautiously encouraging to hear all the talk about “metaverse” on trending business channels today. Could this really be the time for VR?

The world’s most valuable companies own the metal on which their software applications run: Apple and Microsoft have had their fingers in the hardware pie for years, and even Google was able to build a robust OS business with Android. Facebook’s $1 billion acquisition of Oculus in 2014 showed more than Zuck’s hand, though it would be another seven years before the pivot actually took place.

In the years immediately following the Oculus acquisition, there was a wave of investment in VR across the industry. Hardware platforms from Google, Microsoft, Sony, HTC, Steam and others were announced with much fanfare, although these investments were largely scrapped or rolled back a few years later, leaving a lack of VR hardware platform options.

This is when Facebook struck. It increased its investment in the Oculus/Reality Labs platform, innovated to create high-performance mobile VR hardware devices, started seeding capital for game developers, and eagerly acquired the most compelling games on their platform. Taking an ecosystem approach to developers through acquisition is a long-term investment to solve the cold-start content problem that all these VR platforms had to deal with.

Zuckerberg started gaming because it is the earliest category of consumer excitement and high engagement growth, increasing consumer comfort in a headset. Zuck then moves VR/AR into the enterprise to drive hands-on, 3D collaboration from remote teams to a dispersed workforce that is ready for the pandemic.

Lucky or good, he is known as a farsighted strategist. He has shown excellent strategy in response to market movements and timing, not all of which he had under his control.

The “metaverse” already exists in Fortnite and Roblox. Zuck bets we want fully immersive experiences through head-worn computers and be able to power an older user base.

If Facebook’s acquisition history is any guide, Zuckerberg’s strategy will succeed, even though Facebook’s most successful acquisitions, including WhatsApp and Instagram, were already proven social successes at the time of their acquisition. Going all in on the “metaverse” is creating a new platform and paradigm that has been adopted woefully slowly despite multiple hype cycles over 30 years of excitement.

Given the balance sheet, this will probably work – but today it’s still a masterful move of strategy and opportunity that exist in a vacuum.
