THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) ECOSYSTEM: FOUR WAYS IT WILL IMPACT HEALTH

THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT) ECOSYSTEM: FOUR WAYS IT WILL IMPACT HEALTH | Business Video Directory | Scoop.it

My vision of a digital health revolution is in four parts, those being:

Access to information (the internet age)Access to each other (the socialised internet)Access to ourselves (the rise of quantified self, expressed through mobile and wearable health technology)Access to everyone (the subsequent development and application of big data)

 

What is interesting is that it is really a revolution in five parts, the final one is not as noisy as the previous four. It could even be called silent, but there is good reason to believe it will be the most important for the future of medicine, healthcare and well-being. This is the connectivity to everything.

Robin Good's curator insight, April 30, 6:24 AM



"If you can be a guide, a clearinghouse, a trusted place from where to learn, appreciate and understand more, there is no amount of outbound links that is going to counter the magnetic force you will express to those who are interested in what you are pointing to."


This is why the fear every company has about content curation -  talking about *others* in the same field - has not only no reason to exist, but it is also downright counterproductive as soon as others start using it.


Content curation is a venue to make sense of existing information to facilitate access, discovery, comparison, understanding, both on the side of who curates as well as on the one of those who benefit from it.


Part of my inspiration in becoming so passionate and interested in content curation, has been ignited by a post that appeared in 2004, on Robert Scoble's popular tech blog. 

In it, I read: "It's the new marketing... Instead of being desperate and saying "look at me look at me" you tell your readers to get lost.

Go someplace else.


What's the philosophy?


Those sites will take you to the coolest stuff on the Internet. And by doing that, Engadget and Gizmodo have BECOME the coolest places on the Internet. Just like Craig's List, Google, eBay."


Takeaway: The more valuable resources, info and tools you share with your audience/community the more trustworthy and reputable you will appear in their hearts and eyes. 

"Send your visitors away" is a simple but valuable content marketing advice and it is at the heart of what a good content curator does. Finding and sharing great resources that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.

What It Takes To Change Your Brain's Patterns After Age 25

What It Takes To Change Your Brain's Patterns After Age 25 | Business Video Directory | Scoop.it

"In most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again."

 

That quote was made famous by Harvard psychologist William James in his 1890 book The Principles of Psychology, and is believed to be the first time modern psychology introduced the idea that one’s personality becomes fixed after a certain age.

 

More than a century since James’s influential text, we know that, unfortunately, our brains start to solidify by the age of 25, but that, fortunately, change is still possible after. The key is continuously creating new pathways and connections to break apart stuck neural patterns in the brain.

 

Simply put, when the brain is young and not yet fully formed, there’s a lot of flexibility and plasticity, which explains why kids learn so quickly, says Deborah Ancona, a professor of management and organizational studies at MIT.
