I just ran across this video in a very well-written Atlantic.com piece called the Ballad of Mark Zuckerberg, here. This is a must-read and must-watch.
"Zuckerberg, Jeff Jarvis has declared, "sees Facebook as a next step in the net's evolutionary scale toward humanity." And so the young CEO has become a kind of evangelist for the future he is helping to create. "To get people to this point where there's more openness -- that's a big challenge," he told David Kirkpatrick. "But I think we'll do it. I just think it will take time."
Google is the master of keeping us happy by constantly rolling out new features that add serious incremental value to our experience - but probably don't cost them very much: see the latest innovation in gMail, the priority inbox. I will add this to my future presentations on The Future of Business.
This is a rather lengthy (but worth it, I hope:) 90 minute+ video of my June 23, 2010 presentation on "New Insights: The
Future of Business - trends, future scenarios and key insights" at the
Fundacao Dom Cabral (FDC) in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The PDF with the slides can be downloaded via this link (30MB PDF); as usual all material is
creative-commons-licensed (attribution required / non-commercial). Topics include: broadband culture and mobility, social media, the link
economy, the culture of participation, open economy paradigms, cloud
computing futures, the network vs the networked, selling 2.0, privacy
and much more. You can download the FDC's STC program description here.
Here is the official event description: "The pace of change is
constantly accelerating, everywhere and across most industries, whether
it's in technology, communications, marketing, media, manufacturing,
services or consumer goods. Disruption is becoming the norm rather than
the exception. B2B relationships are deeply effected, as well, with new
and often challenging standards of openness, transparency, collaboration
and inter-connectivity quickly emerging. The future is likely to
require hyper-collaboration rather than (just) competition, non-linear
thinking, crowd-sourced innovation, and circular business model
I will be teaching, presenting, giving talks and delivering speeches in Brazil on a regular basis, both for FDC's many executive training programs, and events, as well as for their own staff and internal training. Some of my previous work for FDC can be found here: The Future of Business (slide-show) and Shifting to the Open Network Economy (slide-show).
At this point I also want to thank some of the key 2 people that have egged me on to do more work on Brazil: leadership guru, innovation expert and fellow FDC professor Didier Marlier and music business entrepreneur and iMusica founder Felippe Llerena - thanks to both of you for bringing me to Brazil! Going forward, you can track my travel dates and plans (incl. most of the Brazil trips) via Dopplr, or via my Twitter stream; my next trip is June 21-26. When teaching at FDC in Sao Paulo or Belo Horizonte I may also be available for think-tanks and various speaking engagements in Brazil - just ping me if you are interested.
This is the complete, 75-minute video of my appearance on Brazil's most popular talk show on Public TV, called Roda Viva (on the TV Cultura channel). I was delighted to be invited to the show, and really enjoyed being 'grilled' by the super-smart journalists and Brazilian media experts in the studio. We could have talked forever! The show was originally broadcast on April 26 (on Brazilian TV as well as online, see the Twitter buzz here) but unfortunately the webcast did not work very well so this is the first time I have seen the video, myself, and thanks to Roda Viva / TV Cultura I am delighted to be able to share this recording with you, as well.
More information about the show is here. Duda Groisman made some great photos during the recording of this show, embedded below. Related activities on this trip include: my presentation for NBS Brazil "The Future of Communications and Business", and my presentation at Fundacao Dom Cabral (one of Brazil's best business schools) on "The Open Network Economy". Please note: the video is half Portuguese (the questions) and half English (my replies)
I just did this presentation at the Fundacao Dom Cabral's CEO training series - take a look. I will have another post on this later but the big news is that I have just been appointed Visiting Professor at FDC, yesterday (FDC is the 6th highest rated business school in the world). Cool!
