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.

Brian Rice wrote this piece for Business 2 Community



"What is in store for 2012? With only two months remaining until the end of the year, there is no better time than now to pause and take a look towards the future."




Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Elias Roman, CEO and co-founder of Songza

In 2012 and beyond, savvy marketers will need to cross promote between all channels.
