Why journalists love Reddit for its brains, not just its beauty

Why journalists love Reddit for its brains, not just its beauty | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
For years Reddit has been used by journalists as a source of stories and ideas — but most outlets have preferred to keep their addiction quiet. Now, thanks in large part to President Obama, it doesn't have to be their dirty little secret any more.

De opleiding communicatie (FEM, IB&C) heeft onlangs haar vierde studiejaar (semester 1- G-cluster) volledig vernieuwd. Dit heeft geresulteerd in een innovatief concept waarin studenten, docenten en het werkveld met elkaar samenwerken. Zij vormen een leergemeenschap die zowel online als offline vorm krijgt. Nieuwe manieren van communiceren en verbinden komen uitdrukkelijk terug in het onderwijsconcept. Kortom: practice what you preach! Op 3 juli gaven Saskia Houben en Pim Kraaikamp, docenten bij de opleiding, in hun eigen lokaal aan de Laan van Scheut in Nijmegen een kijkje in hun toeCOMst

Process Is Being Told What to Do by Someone Who Has Less Information than You

Process Is Being Told What to Do by Someone Who Has Less Information than You | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
When Peter Deng emerged from Stanford’s d.school — armed with Post-It Notes and the desire to do something meaningful — he knew he didn’t want a typical job. He wanted something as fluid and flexible as the academic environment he was leaving, where ideas were championed and given space to thrive.
With this in mind, he took a chance and joined as the fourth product manager at a growing company called Facebook. “It was small. People cared about building things that made an impact — and they wanted to do it all fast. I immediately felt at home,” says Deng, now Director of Product at Instagram. But, as often happens when you get a bunch of ambitious people together, the urge to establish hard-and-fast process wasn’t too far behind.
“It’s not that process isn’t necessary, you just have to be extremely mindful about it,” Deng says. This principle has guided his work over the last six years at Facebook, and today as he shapes product at Instagram. “I’m always striving to give my teams an environment where they can focus on building and nothing else.”
At First Round’s CEO Summit, Deng shared the steps he’s taken to thoughtfully remove structure at Instagram in order to maximize and sustain creativity.

Creating a Learning Society

Creating a Learning Society | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

It has long been recognized that most standard of living increases are associated with advances in technology, not the accumulation of capital. Yet it has also become clear that what truly separates developed from less developed countries is not just a gap in resources or output but a gap in knowledge. In fact, the pace at which developing countries grow is largely determined by the pace at which they close that gap. 

Therefore, how countries learn and become more productive is key to understanding how they grow and develop, especially over the long term. In Creating a Learning Society, Joseph E. Stiglitz and Bruce C. Greenwald spell out the implications of this insight for both economic theory and policy. Taking as a starting point Kenneth J. Arrow’s 1962 paper “Learning by Doing,” they explain why the production of knowledge differs from that of other goods and why market economies alone are typically not efficient in the production and transmission of knowledge. Closing knowledge gaps, or helping laggards learn, is central to growth and development.

The Content Economy: 3 Reasons Why Knowledge Worker Engagement Is Decreasing

The Content Economy: 3 Reasons Why Knowledge Worker Engagement Is Decreasing | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Due to the technological development with the Internet and social media, markets are no longer created and controlled with broadcast marketing. People can now find and connect with people like themselves all over the world – and no longer limited to the people in their close proximity and to existing ties such as family members, friends, colleagues or neighbors. They can connect with anyone, and they all influence each other, immediately and with multiplier effects. The power is shifting from companies to consumers. It is a radical shift, but it was predicted already in the mid 90’ies by marketing guru Philip Kotler as a consequence of the Internet. So we shouldn’t be too surprised. Yet a lot of companies are. And they haven’t prepared at all for this. Companies and organizations are waking up to a new reality, and the wake-up call can sometimes be harsh. A number of things are changing, and I will mention four of these here.
