Rebooting Elle - BoF - The Business of Fashion

Rebooting Elle - BoF - The Business of Fashion | African media futures | Scoop.it
LONDON, United Kingdom — “I’ve got one word for you today: buffering,” says Lorraine Candy, editor-in-chief of Elle (UK), to her staff at their Monday morning news conference, as she reminds them to keep lining up content for the magazine’s multi-platform presence. The meeting — which kicks off with digital director Phebe Hunnicutt, formerly managing editor of AOL Women’s Group, giving a run-down of stats from the previous week, highlighting which “packages” Elle “users” were picking up on — felt like it was taking place at a tech start-up rather than a pillar-of-the-establishment monthly style publication. Today, there is no … More
Rudolf Kabutz's insight:

The fashion magazine Elle in the UK has completely rebooted itself from a print-focussed publication to a media house that tells stories through videos, photos, and text on a variety of platforms. How can we become strong in telling the African story on all available channels using effective teams?

Facebook's 10-year plan: To build what comes after smartphones

Facebook's 10-year plan: To build what comes after smartphones | African media futures | Scoop.it
Talk about playing the long game. 
Rudolf Kabutz's insight:

What does the future of interaction look like between people themselves and between people and their environment? Augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence can be playing an increasingly important role in blurring not just our real relationships with virtual relationships, but even our physical perception of the world around us with the virtually enhanced perceptions of everything around us. While Facebook is striving to become a leader in this augmented world, each individual will need to ask the age-old question that Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, "What is truth?" as a blurring variety of realities will be presented.

Rudolf Kabutz's insight:

Media specialists are greatly skilled in communicating. Futurists specialise about understanding the future. When both work closely together, then media production houses become more informed about telling storing that are relevant to our human future, and futurists learn to tell better stories about the future.
How could you help communicators with better futures, or futurists with better media?

Rudolf Kabutz's insight:

What do really brave technical engineers do to enable others to enjoy their media?
They free-climb up broadcasting towers of a height of 539 metres, which is higher than the Empire State Building and the Sears Tower!
This "scary" video shows you how it's done!

“a crossplatform four-quadrant action-adventure franchise!” And Now There Will Be 'Choose Your Own Adventure' Movies | African media futures | Scoop.it

"For readers of a certain age and disposition, the words “Choose Your Own Adventure” conjure up immediate memories of hours spent behind the cover of a thrilling white paperback with red trim, carefully selecting the right path to lead you to a treasure, or the solution of a mystery, or the depths of outer space. And now, 20th Century Fox would like to exploit that nostalgia, if you don’t mind.."

Number of Facebook friends linked to size of brain regions, study suggests

Number of Facebook friends linked to size of brain regions, study suggests | African media futures | Scoop.it
Scientists have found a direct link between the number of "Facebook friends" a person has and the size of particular brain regions. In a new study researchers also showed that the more Facebook friends a person has, the more "real-world" friends they are likely to have.
Rudolf Kabutz's insight:

Media organisations that have in the past unsed uni-diretional communicated are transitioning towards multi-directional interaction with their audiences. If the real-world relationships correlate with the virtual relationships as this study suggests, then the media organisations will need to move beyond social media to interact with their media users, listeners and viewers. Do we need to move back towards live media events hosted by these media organisations?

There Are 7 Billion Mobile Devices On Earth, Almost One For Each Person | African media futures | Scoop.it
The adoption of new technologies is accelerating, and nowhere is the trend more obvious than in mobile computing. It took telephones some 45 years
Rudolf Kabutz's insight:

By the end of 2014 there may be more mobile devices on earth, but they will not be evenly spread. While some will be over-connected on multiple devices, others will struggle to even have a single point to connect. Mobile media becomes more accessible, but may result in new social stratification.

Words. Sentences. Paragraphs. Stories.

Words. Sentences. Paragraphs. Stories. | African media futures | Scoop.it

"The most common style of public speaking, one that’s often used by politicians and is surprisingly common among investment pitches, is based on sentences. At the end of each sentence, the voice goes up a bit, the speaker pauses, as if waiting for an applause line.

I’ve even seen corporate CEOs be trained to do this, mostly because they lack the guts to trust themselves and their audience. It's my least favorite part of the Techstars pitch training, in fact.

The sentence is not a natural building block of public speaking, and it’s tiring, for both the speaker and the audience. It’s hard to maintain any sort of energy in either direction."
