Tim Cook Takes Leadership Role by Changing His Compensation Package

Tim Cook Takes Leadership Role by Changing His Compensation Package | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Apple's CEO was set to get a lot of shares, no matter how the company performed. New rule: If Apple slumps, he can lose hundreds of millions in stock.

 

NOTE:  I need to make a CORRECTION.  Tim Cook suggested this new plan.  Therefore, my previous title was both misleading and sensation.  I am sorry and I will be more caredful.

Ken Morrison's insight:

Here is the quick version:  Cook was promised lots of stock options. He now needs to outperform the market to earn those stocks.  This could cost him 40% of his income.

What's On Zuck's Mind? - An Interview with Wired Magazine's Steven Levy

What's On Zuck's Mind? - An Interview with Wired Magazine's Steven Levy | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Steven Levy chats with Mark Zuckerberg about Facebook Home, News Feed, and building stuff the Hacker Way. Part of Wired's 20th anniversary issue.
Ken Morrison's insight:

One month later,

Facebook Home - It appears to be a bust, but it is still important to see what is on Zuck's mind.  This directly relates to "The Great Tech War of 2012" which I have posted many Scoops.

 

Big Takeaway:  Mark Zuckerberg now realizes that many people are moving toward the desire to share more but with a smaller percentage of people.  I am certain that this is why he has integrated Google's concept of putting friends in differeent groups.

 

He also mentions the newsfeed. I really don't like his comment about a cousin's pregnancy not being worthy of being at the top of your newsfeed.

 

He claims that the rollout of Graph Search was more accepted by the public because he was more active in getting beedback (feedforward) from the public. He mentions that the technology was ready to be rolled out months before it was announced. He chose to wait due to previous privacy concerns.

I also enjoyed their talk on wearable gadgets and the shift in tech devices.  We will not longer watch them.   They will watch us.

Steve Jobs knew the world would look like this. He knew that we would develop an intimately personal relationship with our computers, and he knew it as far back as the early '80s.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Here is a gem of a video from 33 years ago as a young Steve Jobs discusses his hope for the future based on what he sees from young students, his accounting assistants at Apple, and a farmer in Nebraska,

It is interesting to see Steve Jobs not in control of an interview.  at about 15 minutes, Jobs talks about how he is trying to build Pixar, his relationship with Disney, and he pretends to not be bitter about being kicked out of Apple.  More Phds worked on toy story than any movie in history..  jobs put $50 million of his own money in Toy Story.

An Eye On New Media 2013

Here is the 2013 version of my textbook that I curated for my students at Hannam University's Linton Global College.  Next year's vesion will include more of the teacher's notes that I share with my students.  I hope that it is helpful for you.  If you would like a free PDF version of the book, send me an email at kenmorrison30 (at) yahoo (dot) com or download it at the slideshare site.

 

I put a lot of work into the 2012 version.  I feel that it passed the test of time. There are some updates and additions in this version.  I also decreased the size of many images to make it less expensive to print.

 

Please please please support the real authors of this content.   I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

  

Would you like to see the output of this class?  Here is a collection of the Scoop.it curation sites which my students created to help them prepare for their future goals or research topics:

켄모리슨 교수님이 자신이 제작한 2013년 교재 "An Eye On New Media" 를 공유했다. 소셜미디어와 구글 아마존등 온라인 거물들의 역사와 지도자들을 간단하게 담아냈으며, 어떻게 하면 개인이나 집단이 이런 소셜미디어의 세계에서 성공할 수 있는지에 대한 많은 기사와 정보들을 모아놨다.

 

My professor from Linton Global College, Ken Morrison, has made his 2013 version curated book "An Eye on New Media". This curated book contains much information about how current social media was established and how  our new meida trend will change over time. 2012 version of this book really helped me a lot understanding the fundamental knowledge about media.
