Hi Oliver, Pretty amazing stuff right? It really gets one thinking about at all the possibilities, innovation and things that haven't even been created yet. Exciting times to say the least:-)

The emergence of Talents Networks

Absolutely fascinating - this is the future and it's happening now.......


by Didier Marlier


Intro:


In the true spirit of P.F.E. (Proudly Found Elsewhere), so typical of the Open Source Economy, I borrowed the title (and a lot of the content) of this post to Neil Perkin, one of my colleagues in Gerd Leonhard’s “Futures Agency”. I’d like to thank him for the source of inspiration his article was for me and hopefully will be for many of you.


Neil enthusiastically describes the emergence of Talent Networks and the way these start to organize and work. One of them is a new New-York based advertising agency named “Co”. “The name deliberately evokes their business model of co-creation, collaboration and co-venturing, of a small, agile organizational hub that works with and draws from a list of 40 agencies, businesses and consultancies that are specialists in particular services ranging from digital marketing, to PR, Social Media, Design, technology, gaming, events and media” writes Neil.


**This to him is symptomatic of a broader trend: the rise of Talent Networks.


The principal causes for that emergence is to be found in the digitization and the recession (which) have combined to create en environment in which the value of much of what we know is depreciating, and which increasingly requires a culture and a pace of innovation that is consistent with start-ups (…) Corporate down-sizing and technology have combined to create an influx of highly talemted individuals into the market with the ready means to turnthat talent into real value (…)

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it
We asked Mark Cuban, Dennis Crowley, Gina Bianchini, and more than a dozen others. Here's what they said.


This article by Dan Frommer and Jen Ortiz for Business Insider links to a slideshow with quotes from major Social Media company CEOs and co-founders, intellectuals and a Curated Twitter persona, among others about their takes on the future of Social Media. 


Here's just one of them, from Dae Mellencamp, CEO of Vimeo:


**** "The future of social media is the loss of the distinction between media and social interaction online. Mass media and social media will be seamlessly integrated across devices and platforms to offer relevant, dynamic, personalized experiences for people anywhere.


**Discoverability and the import of editorial curation will not be lost, but rather inherently incorporated into the environments for richer and more customized experiences."


The full article has many more gems and is well worth a few minutes of your time!
