Great example of what Prezi can do.

Ian Korman's curator insight, February 3, 12:19 AM

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

The Top 5 Tech Biz Stories of 2012 | TIME.com | Hesperia Business | Scoop.it
For the first time ever, smartphones outnumber basic mobile phones. Apple's iPhone and Google's Android devices -- which are more powerful than the top consumer PCs of just a decade ago -- are changing our habits.
Hesperia Chamber's insight:

Interesting look back on tech in 2012. I forgot some of the big stories. Even as a technophile, I am amazed at how far we have come in the past decade with technology. I wonder if the tech growth is outpacing our human ability to adapt to all of it.

Why Millennials are Difficult to Mentor

Why Millennials are Difficult to Mentor | Hesperia Business | Scoop.it
Millennials or Gen Y are more difficult to mentor than employees and peers of the past. Since they're less motivated by money and more by their individual career experiences, they require a different mentoring style.
Hesperia Chamber's insight:

Do you feel challenged when attempting to mentor young employees? Although I am a Gen Xer, I understand the Millennial thought process. My peers often say they feel overwhelmed with the amount of info at their fingertips, but I am early adopter of new technology and love that I can get answers to almost anything in an instant. I believe this access to information creates shorter attention spans and the need to continually move forward whether it's in a career track, education, or personal development. The next generation has grown up with the technology, and as a result deals with information very differently, and they are fairly agile in their careers moving about when they tire of one scene or get new opportunities.
