World’s first internet opera opening at Savonlinna

World’s first internet opera opening at Savonlinna | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
A production conceived by an international online community staged by opera professionals will premiere at the Savonlinna Opera Festival this weekend.


The brainchild of the Opera by You project, Free Will is the first-ever opera crowdsourced online.

As the name implies, anyone who wanted to could join in the effort—and the opera's creators number some 200 participants the world over. They've come up with ideas, composed music and selected the best proposals by voting.

When director Jere Erkkilä was invited onboard the project, the whole system was a complete maze to him, he says.

"Art director Jari Hämäläinen called a couple of years ago and asked whether I’d want to take part in this. I said ,'sure, I’ve no idea what you’re talking about, so I’m joining'," Erkkilä quips.

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom

How I Became The Most Followed Nobody In Finland via @JaanaNystrom | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

@Jaana Nyström is a great curator and she just beat me to the punch :). When she shared her EPIC journey of using G+ to move from "nobody" to "somebody" I planned to blog about her amazing journey. The content and message was too good to be trapped in comments.

Read this post CAREFULLY as you may recognize where you are on Jaana's timeline of personal brand development. There are several "inside baseball" tips to pay particular attention to including:

* Don't worry about perfection, start publishing.
* G+ is an AMAZING and vastly under used tool (start there add more social nets later).
* No matter what, keep turning the crank (keep going) since the only sin you and your personal band can't recover from is NOT PLAYING.

Great stuff from an amazing curator. What lessons did you learn from Jaana Nystrom? What similar lessons have you learned as you create a meaningful personal brand?
