A more united United States of America: Sally Kohn's liberal views on Fox News & Today | TED Blog

A more united United States of America: Sally Kohn's liberal views on Fox News & Today | TED Blog | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

Sally Kohn is both liberal and a lesbian -- and she worked at FOX News, contributing to the conservative network for three years. During that time, sparred with some of the most conservative minds on television.  In this TED talk, she gives a bold idea for pushing past political polarization.

She feels strongly that the only way to address the issues facing our country is to sit down and have a real conversation — no more talking past each other or walking out of press conferences.  


She comments:  If people come up to me on the street, it’s: ” I don’t agree with you but I really like you. You seem really cool, you seem fun, you seem nice.” And to me, that’s huge. That’s 90% of the way there. As opposed to, “Oh you’re another one of those crazy, angry [people].”


Her current articles for 2014 are listed on The Daily Beast. 

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This 2013 article has lessons for our 2014 news and social media, which has all kinds of filter bubbles built into it.  For example, have your heard more about July 2014 Miley Cyrus' tattoo of her dog lately than about the recent July 4th gun violence in Chicago?  82 people were injured, of that 14 killed, yet few news organizations covered it in prime time compared to a star's tattoo.

If Sally was a token liberal at FOX news, her message is still getting out, via TED's blog, as well as her record of exposure at FOX.  

What do you think?   ~  D

The Internet
Aside from the computer itself, the Web is the most important technological advancement of the 20th Century, and its centrality to our lives is only increasing.  


For example:  online education – A democratizing force ?  A way to keep up with your field? Advance your education on your own terms? Connect advanced students into accelerated classes?


Social Media
If the Internet is a giant global brain, then social networks are the actual signals being sent


The others are Portable Devices and Desktop Publishing.

Innovation and Effectuation. Are they siblings? | LinkedIn & Reveln

Innovation and Effectuation.  Are they siblings? | LinkedIn & Reveln | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

Additionally, you are only going to invest what you can afford to lose - no more.

 

I'm very curious about Effetuation as a focus of a newly opened LinkedIn group because:

 

1) Effectuation popped up in my curation screen, including this new open LinkedIn group,

 

2) that "good fit" as described in this curation post is another angle to Effectuation that is news to me, and fits work that many of us do with leadership teams and leader development, and

 

3) Innovation and Effectuation, if not married, seem to at least be relatives in the same close family.

 

I'll post more about Effectuation in this ScoopIt curation stream as it connects to institutions and innovation as I'm able to see & share the linkages.   In the next few days, I have a new LinkedIn group to check out.
