In The Particular Lies The Universal - Old media vs Social Media

In The Particular Lies The Universal - Old media vs Social Media | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

"We recognize that any truly new idea is met with fear, will never pass "marketing" or the Nielsens or Hollywood or even the Joneses. But the few brave ones, both companies and individuals, who risk comfort and safety for a chance at beauty or being able to move someone — they have a potential to gain so much more. Loyalty, respect, and awe." 


The quote above -- which I took out of the linked blog is ironic when you consider that today - American Censorship Day - the world is face to face with the power of US politicians who want to destroy the internet by pushing through a few bills that support the mindsets of traditional marketing, the Neilsons , Hollywood and the Joneses - the status quo in their so call protection of IP and copyrights. In essense they want to put an end to sharing, to personal creativity, to begin "social"...


They want to destroy "The brave few who risk comfort and safety" to start something new...destroy those who have created for us a new way to communicate - built on social networks and platforms...social media...way and means that ultimately connect us all and in doing so make us all more empowered in ever aspect of our lives from banking, to shopping, to sharing, to creating, to envisioning a better future for the planet - all these companies and individuals are now under fire and about to be sued and fired and broken should these bills pass.


People, What are we going to do to stop this insanity?

Women in Tech: We Really Do Need More!

Women in Tech: We Really Do Need More! | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

What's wrong with this picture? "While women make up 48 percent of our workforce, they hold just 24 percent of the jobs in science, tech, engineering and math."  Women are raised to be techno phobic for the most part, rasied to be "Barbies". The double whammy comes when they try to "be creative" and are told that more science is needed to validate their position - when in truth being an tek entrepreneur like Zukerberg requires alot of creative thought as well as the technical skills. This blog post reminds me of the same arguement that goes around in the field of sales. i.e. women can't sell cars, or technology or techincal services when in fact at the end of the day it is more about building relationships that boring the hell out of your potential client with the "specification dump". It was a woman from CNN who worked her way up the corporate ladder wrote the book "women are the best salesmen" and if a woman believes in herself - this is always the case! Switching back to social media we must remember that is is based entirely in relationship building and being "social". My "Thank Q Social Media" campaign is dedicated to the woman who wrote the first lines of code - Ada Lovelace, daughter to a famous poet and lover to the man who created the first analytical machine we now know as a computer. Babbage. And yet, how many women know this? Hopefully social media will help to right this wrong over the long term..

Pusha T Talks about his music and Twitter’s Greatness

Pusha T Talks about his music and Twitter’s Greatness | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

I enjoy Twitter a lot. The thing is, I’m really late to Twitter. At one point I wasn’t even running my Twitter. My manager was. And I don’t like his dialog, so I was like, “You’ve got to stop this.” When I got on it, it was such a great way to find out and gauge the response of the public. I honestly think it’s a better gauge than blogging, or blog comments. If I post a record and they immediately listen to it, you’re getting the instant reaction.

Twitter: the 21st Century Haiku? | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

Love the concept of Twitter being the 21st Century Haiku. yes it is short and sweet. While the brevity is so very cool it is the fact that is dynamic that keeps me so fully engaged! I once heard  web design described as "writing on water" and while most web sites are homes for dust bunnies, Twitter is indeed a constant stream of new bits and bytes!

American Censorship Day sees old media ads about new media restrictions | MILE HIGH Social Media | Scoop.it

It is ironic but true that in order to get the attention of the ruling elite in Washington - the masters of Social Media would have to secure print ads.. It is as McLuhan said in his book "Laws Of Media" new media looking back through the rear view mirror to its distractors -which, in this case he dubbed "the Print Bastards". For a great overview on the power of print media in western culture - aka "the Gutenberg Gallaxy" check out this link http://byronik.com/diss08.html
