The City Startup: Tony's Hsieh's Downtown Project

As a filmmaker, I have documented other social experiments, like Josh Harris' underground bunker in We Live in Public. Just as A TOTAL DISRUPTION is the flip side of that dark look at our future online (which is now), Tony Hsieh's Downtown Project is, in many ways, an ambitious, opverse look at bringing people together around technology - with a Buddha-like optimist at the center instead of a big-brother Oz behind the curtain. I think that's why I keep coming back. The bigger the project gets, the smaller and more like a community it feels - because as the ideas come off the famed wall of Post-its and go from being dreams to reality - so the founders become pillars of this community - invested in making it the greatest place on earth. Tony has assembled a team to bring the best and brightest creative entrepreneurs to Vegas, determined to build out a utopian community within a major urban center. It's the most fascinating and ambitious project I have ever witnessed, and I feel lucky to be documenting it as it unfolds.

Rising Sea Levels – Can Sustainable Energy Help?

Rising Sea Levels – Can Sustainable Energy Help? | iGNITION! | Scoop.it
  • For a start, people living in low-lying areas may benefit from standalone power supplies, like solar home systems.  This has already been shown in areas of Bangladesh that were struck by cyclone Sidr in 2007, where solar home systems installed by Ashden winner Grameen Shakti maintained crucial phone communications and lighting when mains infrastructure had been destroyed.
  • It also makes sense to increase the use of local generation on electricity grids, and so reduce dependence on large coastal power stations. Sharing out generation between different locations cuts distribution losses and shares out risk. If the generation is from renewable sources like hydro, wind, solar PV or biomass, then it also cuts CO2 emission. “Local” can be at different scales, from solar PV on individual homes, as exemplified by Ashden 2013 winner WREN, up to community-scale wind farms such as those developed by 2007 winner Ecotricity.

Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council #Crowdfunding Resources | iGNITION! | Scoop.it

Small business owners and entrepreneurs are excited about changes in federal law (the Jump Start Our Business Startup Up Act – JOBS Act) that allow for equity and debt-based crowdfunding.  What is crowdfunding and how can you prepare for it?  While SBE Council works to get JOBS Act rules finalized, we encourage you to learn more about the “how to’s” of crowdfunding and how your business can benefit from this financing strategy.  Small business owners and entrepreneurs are already raising capital through rewards-based and gift-based crowdfunding.  See how and if your business can begin to raise funds through this innovative strategy starting now.  UPDATE:  On September 23, the SEC rule lifting the ban on general solicitation (Title II) took effect. Title II allows entrepreneurs and startups to broadly market and advertise their offerings. - See more at: http://www.sbecouncil.org/resources/crowdfunding/

Béatrice D.'s curator insight, October 28, 2013 2:54 PM

En France, le temps moyen passé sur un site internet tourne plutôt autour des 4 minutes 40, comme l’indiquait le rapport de Google Analytics en 2011. 

Journaliste 2.0, depuis sa mise en ligne sur le site de France 4 le 1er juillet dernier, garde les internautes en moyenne 7'30". En l’espace de trois mois, plus de 9.500 visiteurs uniques se sont attardés sur ce site.

Faut-il en conclure que plus c'est long, plus c'est bon? Je dirais plutôt, plus c'est bon, plus on peut faire long.

Un web-doc interessant dans le cadre d'une "éducation aux médias"

Philippe Villette's comment, October 29, 2013 3:22 AM
Je dirais aussi que la longueur d'un webdoc n'a pas de sens en tant que tel. Si le sujet et son traitement sont intéressants, les internautes prendront le temps de les visionner, si besoins est, en plusieurs séquences. Rien n'empêche non plus de rédiger une synthèse pour les pressés ... A vouloir tout formater en fonction d'un supposé temps de disponibilité, on nivelle par le bas.
