The Story of Solutions

Published on Oct 1, 2013

Annie Leonard's back with another animated video, six years after the Story of Stuff came out, and after eight other short films. This time, she's talking about what we need to do to solve problems—and how we really need to reframe goals so we're looking at the whole system.

 

The Story of Solutions explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal.
In the current 'Game of More', we're told to cheer a growing economy -- more roads, more malls, more Stuff! -- even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing and polar icecaps are melting.
But what if we changed the point of the game? What if the goal of our economy wasn't more, but better -- better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet? Shouldn't that be what winning means? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpkRvc-sOKk

What is the Future of Work?

What is the Future of Work? | DIY Vertical Gardens | Scoop.it

Social media is relentlessly chipping away at the power and control that companies and governments have long enjoyed almost exclusively over the rest of the world. Supply chains, talent management (hiring), customer service, product development, and just about every function of business is being transformed by things like 3D printing, social recruiting, customer care communities, crowdsourcing, to only name a few of the more important examples.


That’s not even looking at the macro changes (example: Arab Spring), in which digital/social is impacting the fabric of entire nations. In all of these cases, the power and control is shifting to the other side of the network, to what many now call the ‘edge’, where most of us are.

Max Follmer "[...] with rapidly increasing competition for viewers, growing smartphone and tablet penetration, and the emergence of new platforms, marketing and creative teams are increasingly playing an important role in developing “storyworlds,” experiences that bridge the gap between marketing and content and lay out the mythology, characters, setting, backstories, and events that drive a show."

Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, March 29, 2014 7:46 PM

“As the battle for viewers’ attention becomes more and more intense, we’re seeing marketing teams start to build their storyworlds earlier and earlier ahead of launches.”  


Popular television shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Dallas, and others do a great job of using transmedia to turn viewers into disciples and also attract new viewers.

"Essential tips from the transmedia producer [Jay Bushman] of online video phenomenon The Lizzie Bennet Diaries!"

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 25, 2014 1:56 PM

Bushman's 3 keys is a great article because there is compelling psychology underlying all of them.  My favorite of Bushman's three keys are 2 and 3.  Key 2 is setting and keeping expectations.  However innovative your project, he speaks to the importance of creating rhythms and patterns so the audience can develop expectations.  From a neuro-cognitive perspective, the brain seeks patterns and derives pleasure and comfort from finding a structure and therefore can anticipate with pleasure new developments rather than feel frustrated.  In Key 3, Bushman says trust your team.  We often see articles about how you can't control your audience, but few about the same for the internal team.  Controlling people takes a lot of effort and at the end, nobody's happy.  Key 3 indicates how well Bushman has inspired his people and established team purpose and affiliation so that they can further the project with autonomy, increasing, no doubt, their own emotional investment it the characters and the project's success.  I would argue that right after having a good story comes having a good leader to achieve success.

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist | DIY Vertical Gardens | Scoop.it

A recent article in The Economist quotes Bill Gates as saying at least a dozen job types will be taken over by robots and automation in the next two decades, and these jobs cover both high-paying and low-skilled workers. Some of the positions he mentioned were commercial pilots, legal work, technical writing, telemarketers, accountants, retail workers, and real estate sales agents.

 

Indeed, as I’ve predicted before, by 2030 over 2 billion jobs will disappear. Again, this is not a doom and gloom prediction, rather a wakeup call for the world.

What steps can one take to make an infographic more interactive? How about creating one that will allow the users to interact with data? This post explores this concept, providing information on four tools that will help with the process. Learn more about:
* StatSilk and StatTrend are both put out by the same company. It appears that they offer some free software and some paid software. Both of these were free at the time I checked.

* Many Eyes is a free tool that IBM provides.

* Google Public Data allows you to use data from Google or upload your own and create interactive content.
