Humanity remains at the wheel in the second machine age - FT.com | Digital disruption, evolution and social change | Scoop.it
It is easy to be pessimistic about jobs and pay these days. More and more work is being automated away by ever more powerful and capable technologies.
Sally Duros's insight:

Older workers and others who are digitally adept bring strategic insight to the table. That skill set is often overlooked and under valued.

"Many have concluded that the era of large-scale technological unemployment has finally arrived."

A growing obsession with viral content exposes the weakness of most digital media

A growing obsession with viral content exposes the weakness of most digital media | Digital disruption, evolution and social change | Scoop.it
Everyone from BuzzFeed to the Washington Post seems to be chasing after viral content because of the traffic it brings — but all this does is reinforce how doomed the pageview-based model really is
Sally Duros's insight:

"the value of incremental pageviews is sinking inexorably towards zero." Engagement is the key, and we have not found a good way to quantify this intangible.

This Chipotle Ad has most beautiful animation we've seen all year

This Chipotle Ad has most beautiful animation we've seen all year | Digital disruption, evolution and social change | Scoop.it

Interesting. A great piece of branded content. By bringing us this animation, Chipotle gains some halo and tells us it supports antibiotic free livestock and humane farming practices in its food. It doesn't say outright it does but by bringing this animation to us it makes us remember the Chipotle name and what its tands for. A simple Google search, however, shows that according to Businessweek, Chipotle "is considering bending its rules on serving only “naturally raised” beef amid a supply shortage."

How the News Got Less Mean | TIME.com | Digital disruption, evolution and social change | Scoop.it

A young agency executive asked me recently why my LinkedIn Profile headline says: Digital storyteller seeks to share your tales of love lost, found, forgotten and renewed. The reason why, as I told her, is because I believe the Social Web is fueled by love. Not to say that difficult info is not shared or that the online world should only consist of fluff. But in truth, the stories we share are the stories we love. Evidence mounts.    

 

The more people get their information by sharing online, the more positive stories get. New research underlines a growing trend in media

This So-Called Digital Life: Re-Evaluating the Value of Time Spent in Social Networks

This So-Called Digital Life: Re-Evaluating the Value of Time Spent in Social Networks | Digital disruption, evolution and social change | Scoop.it
Believe it or not, this isn't anti-social...it's a norm of a then analog society. Whether we like it or not, it happens with every media and technology revolution. It's happening again right now
Sally Duros's insight:

Knocking off what Brian says here: Here is why I spend time on social networks. Here is the VALUE I seek.
1) Vision
Yes, I want to share a vision. I want you to join me. I want you to ask me to join you, I want us to build something together that has positive and permanent value.
2) Validation
If you share my vision, I then know that I am not alone, that I might be on to something. Together, we might in fact be on to something of value.
3) Vindication (I’m right, cleared);
If you thought I was wrong before, you now know that I am right. We are right. What we build together is of value.
4) Vulnerability (I’m open);
I have nothing to hide. You can see me here clearly. Join me. Let's build something important together.
5) Vanity
I'm vain enough to believe I know something that is of value to you and together we can build something even more valuable for both of us.

The thing is for this thing I post about to really matter, it has to be based in IRL, it has to have an impact on the world.

Young and Naive YouTube Questions for German Politicians | Digital disruption, evolution and social change | Scoop.it

Applause!

 

Freelance German Journalist Tilo Jung says this about his homegrown show with the tagline "Politics for the Disinterested:"  


"The format is meant to appeal to those who are fed up with politics, who feel overwhelmed by the current political situation or have shut themselves off from it. But it's also meant to appeal to those interested in politics: for them the possibility of gaining insight is in the background, entertainment is at the forefront."

An antecdote to Digital Distraction? Meditation, of course.

 

"Meditation is the original neuroscience, the world's oldest conscious exploitation of neuroplasticity, and it's a twenty-five-hundred-year-old answer to the twenty-five-year-old problem of digital distraction. It helps you restore cognitive abilities that electronic overindulgence can erode."
