The End of Wall Street As They Knew It and the 2nd Wave of Silicon Valley

The End of Wall Street As They Knew It and the 2nd Wave of Silicon Valley | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

“If you’re a smart Ph.D. from MIT, you’d never go to Wall Street now,” says a hedge-fund executive. “You’d go to Silicon Valley. There’s at least a prospect for a huge gain. You’d have the potential to be the next Mark Zuckerberg. It looks like he has a lot more fun.”

Is Facebook A Miracle Of Capitalism or the power of the human brain?

Is Facebook  A Miracle Of Capitalism or the power of the human brain? | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

"1,000 new millionaires will be made in a moment."


While I agree Facebook could not have happened in China as the environment is not condusive to innovation, perhaps we need to take into consideration the power of Zukerberg's mind to manifest all this!


Clearly he had an entrepreneurial vision and passion that attracted the right players to him in order to make his dream a reality. Western world loves to focus on the external factors but it was the thought that took place in the the four inches between each of his ears that really made the difference.

Woz on Creativity: Work Alone

Woz on Creativity: Work Alone | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

"Groupthink, the origin of originality, and why most inventors are like artists."


This article really resonates with me - as I am an artist first and foremost - and struggle constantly with the pressure to join groups and conform or stand on my own and innovate. Using McLuhan's definition of the artist as being the "attennae of the race" and the one who "wakes people up to the NOW, the present moment" this is a role that requires, at the very least, time to think and play and brainstorm far from the maddening crowds of "groupthink".

The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption

The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

Cook book book on why consuming information is actually good for you and will not rot your brain! Of course it follows from ancient days that "Know Oneself" can be enhanced by learning, openess and awareness and in the 21C by the idea that "knowledge is power - SHARE it" is in full effect through social media. 


"an intelligent manifesto for optimizing the 11 hours we spend consuming information on any given day (a number that, for some of us, might be frighteningly higher) in a way that serves our intellectual, creative, and psychological well-being"

Twitter Is Not a Media Company, CEO Says. oh yeah and what exactly is it then?

Twitter Is Not a Media Company, CEO Says. oh yeah and what exactly is it then? | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

Clearly someone needs to go back to Media Studies 101 aka Media Literacy a la McLuhan or just re read the book he wrote called Understanding Media - the Extensions of Man. ( and woman too!) 


I cannot believe that Mr. Costolo actually said this. There must be a mis understanding here.  A quick Wiki look up show the definition of media as including "advertising".


http://bit.ly/yWMGUo



That is a base level knowledge of media --- you want to get to a higher level conversation, one fitting perhaps for a CEO who must hold the vision for a company -- then you have to review what McLuhan the 21C media guru -- said about media being an extension of our nervous system.


http://bit.ly/w9CMF9


Last time I checked content/media was being distributed on Twitter.  I know it is a bit confusing for some folks---- but according to McLuhan even a chair is a form of "media'. Sit down Mr. Costolo and read this book, please for yourself and the rest of humanity...I beg you...the masses are confused enough as it is...for "like fish in water they do not recongize the environment that they inhabit"! --McLuhan

Startups take turns telling their stories in New York City store

Startups take turns telling their stories in New York City store | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

Interesting concept: "A Startup Store is a retail space in New York City that helps startups gain exposure by giving them a place to tell their stories and display their wares." I guess a location in NYC gives one access to people passing by. On a smaller town it would have the effect of really opening up the eyes of the local population who might not be online but in a city like NY you would think that they would reach more people online. In this case I think it is all about the juxposition between community, physical location and giving birth to new ideas.
