Fireside chat with Google co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin | Khosla Ventures

At the annual KV CEO Summit, we were fortunate to have both Larry Page and Sergey Brin sit down to discuss a wide range of topics including the acquisition that never was (although not for lack of trying!), why computers today are still pretty bad, their partnership over the last 16 years, the future of Google, government 2.0 and how machine learning and technology will shape our future of abundance.

The full transcript is included

WIth big data comes big responsibility http://om.co/2014/07/08/with-big-data-comes-big-responsibility/

 

"Whether it is a billions of photos that carry a payload of emotions, relationships and location data, or status updates announcing the arrival of a new one or those searches for discount Prada shoes or a look-up about a medical condition — there is someone somewhere vacuuming our data droppings and turning them into fodder for their money machine."


"...The question is will the gatekeepers of the future rise to the challenge?"

Altimeter Report Refines ‘Digital Transformation’ Definition

Altimeter Report Refines ‘Digital Transformation’ Definition | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Investing in digital technologies--such as social media, mobile, big data, and the cloud--is all well and good. But doing so does not mean a company is in the midst of a “digital transformation,” according to a new Altimeter Group report. 

 

“The State Of Digital Transformation” is aimed at executives and digital strategists to help gauge where they are relative to other companies. The key finding: While 88 percent of marketers surveyed said their organizations are currently undergoing a digital transformation, just 25 percent of them have actually mapped out a key componenet of the change: their targets’ digital customer journey.

 

Altimeter defines digital transformation as the alignment of, or new investment in, technology and business models to more effectively engage digital customers at every touch point in the customer experience life cycle. According to Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter, companies need to undergo a digital transformation to make it in today’s world.

Wil je het geluid van YouTube video opnemen dan is Peggo een mooie manier om een mp3 bestand te maken. Kopieer  en plak de link in de zoekmachine en de video wordt opgezocht. Met een paar handige instellingen (verwijder stiltes, audio normaliseren) maakt Peggo in een handomdraai een prima mp3.
