Encapsulation, Tree Rings & Why the Future is Driven By the Past

Encapsulation, Tree Rings & Why the Future is Driven By the Past | African media futures | Scoop.it

People often think new technology replaces the old. In reality it rarely does. To Sid Mead’s point, the problem is that it arrives, but not all at once.


New technology has– to some extent– to be compatible with the past. So rather than replace it, it often lays over the old system and encapsulates it. In doing this, it has a firm foundation but it also means it inherits some of the characteristics of the old technology.


It’s exactly the same process with trees. Every year a ‘new’ tree encapsulates the old tree like an overcoat, yet it relies on the old tree to support this new layer. Every knot, branch and imperfection is reproduced by each successive layer.

Africa and the Six ‘I’s: Independence, Investment, Infrastructure, Innovation, Incubation, Inspiration | Str8Talk Chronicle

Africa and the Six ‘I’s: Independence, Investment, Infrastructure, Innovation, Incubation, Inspiration | Str8Talk Chronicle | African media futures | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that Africa has become a major success story. In 2012, six of the world’s 10 fastest-growing economies were in sub-Saharan Africa, and this trend shows no signs of slowing. In 2012, growth hit 5.3 percent and it is predicted to increase this year. Meanwhile technology is transforming the continent. With 650 million subscribers, Africa’s mobile phone market now exceeds that of the U.S. or EU — a development that is changing lives. In addition to these startling figures, there is Africa’s young population, which, according to projections, will double over the next four decades.

These findings are a source of enormous excitement but they also require thoughtful consideration. I suggest that in looking to Africa’s future, six principles should govern decision-making in business and policy: independence, investment, incubation, innovation, infrastructure and inspiration — the six ‘I’s.

Infographics are fast becoming the way to share details and analytics that move way beyond the standard pie charts used by many businesses in terms of "telling the story".

 

Here's another good example that highlights the importance of social media for content creators and how the smartphone platforms must be considered when creating content. It's not just a smartphone anymore, it's become the canvas!
