Networked Society 'On the Brink' - Emerging Opportunities Enabled by Technology [Video]

I rescooped this from one of my other topics because I thought it might be of interest to you. What these people are talking about effects all of us personally and professionally.


****On The Brink is a discussion the past, present and future of connectivity with a mix of people including David Rowan, chief editor of Wired UK; Caterina Fake, founder of Flickr; and Eric Wahlforss, the co-founder of Soundcloud.


**Each of the interviewees discusses the emerging opportunities being enabled by technology as we enter the Networked Society.


**Concepts such as borderless opportunities and creativity, new open business models, and today's 'dumb society' are brought up and discussed.

Where Do Good Ideas Come From?

Here's something from Steven Johnson to get your creative juices flowing. (He is one of our most innovative, popular thinkers)


Steven takes on-in exhilarating style-one of our key questions: Where do good ideas come from?


With Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson pairs the insight of his bestselling Everything Bad Is Good for You and the dazzling erudition of The Ghost Map and The Invention of Air to address an urgent and universal question:


**What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen? Answering in his infectious, culturally omnivorous style, using his fluency in fields from neurobiology to popular culture,


**Johnson provides the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of how we generate the ideas that push our careers, our lives, our society, and our culture forward.


Beginning with Charles Darwin's first encounter with the teeming ecosystem of the coral reef and drawing connections to the intellectual hyperproductivity of modern megacities and to the instant success of YouTube,


**Johnson shows us that the question we need to ask is,

What kind of environment fosters the development of good ideas? His answers are never less than revelatory, convincing, and inspiring as Johnson identifies the seven key principles to the genesis of such ideas, and traces them across time and disciplines.


Most exhilarating is Johnson's conclusion that with today's tools and environment,


**radical innovation is extraordinarily accessible to those who know how to cultivate it. (Inspiring, an exciting time to be alive)!


Where Good Ideas Come From is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how to come up with tomorrow's great ideas.
