Because everything is better in The Netherlands,... | Sisu Bento Box | Scoop.it
Because everything is better in The Netherlands, a library information desk made entirely out of books. Best thing since the Bibliochaise chair.
Annie Talvé's insight:

With libraries around the world clearing out books to create more flexible spaces, here is a great example of what can be done with the discards.

The food of the future is not what you’d expect

The food of the future is not what you’d expect | Sisu Bento Box | Scoop.it

On her own admission, Li Edelkoort says she’s in a strange profession. As a trend and lifestyle forecaster, her clients come from a diverse range of industries — fashion, cars, cosmetics and even food. So what inspires these predictions? Is there something the rest of us are missing? “The signs are always available,” she says. “I just learned to train my intuition, learned to listen and tapped into it as early as possible.” Recently in Toronto for the launch of Samsung’s Chef Collection, we decided to pick her brain about the culinary trends she’s picked up on that we should all be paying attention to right now and those that will affect us in the near future.

Must Read Report: The Internet’s Latest Disruption – Knowledge. | Sisu Bento Box | Scoop.it
Know or die: risk and opportunity of Knowledge 2.0
“And the web stormed the enterprise and disrupted roles, tasks and jobs: it cast speed, openness, flexibility and efficiency throughout, sparing no business processes: manufacturing, logistic, accounting, customer relation management, lead generation…”
The digital mutation is also profoundly disrupting how knowledge is acquired, organized and shared. Knowledge is an intangible, yet strategic asset of any enterprise. With businesses becoming more virtual and dematerialized, its value is patently and rapidly growing. Continue reading →

I was in Africa when last week’s #frightbat Twitterstorm broke. The term itself, clogging my Twitterfeed, meant nothing to me. Plus I had a speech to give. So it was the next day before I discovered that ''frightbat'' is Daily Telegraph blogger Tim Blair’s pejorative for smart, articulate female.

Arts in daily life: Australian participation in the arts

Virtually all Australians engage in the arts, in some way, each year—by attending performances or exhibitions, contributing time or money to arts organisations or by their own creative work. Two-thirds of those surveyed say the arts are important for child development and the 85% agree that the arts make for a richer and more meaningful life.

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | Sisu Bento Box | Scoop.it
 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis? Continue reading →
