28 Major Trends for 2012 and Beyond – Part 1

28 Major Trends for 2012 and Beyond – Part 1 | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

Futurist Thomas Frey gives us some fascinating predictions for the very exciting year ahead. It's a great post with essential information to shift your thinking and get ready for 2012.

 

My intro:

 

There were so many things that I could comment on but my primary focus in 2012 is the future of content curation, the evolution and its impact on how we utilize and digest data in our business and personal lives. How will curation be perceived in 2012 and what will the monetary value be for content curation? 

 

Having said that, this is what particularly caught my attention:

 

Information Doesn’t Want to be Free– In 1984 at a Hackers Conference, Silicon Valley futurist Stuart Brand was the first to use the phrase: “Information wants to be free” in response to a point made by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak but continued

 

“On the other hand, information wants to be expensive, because it’s so valuable.

 

**"The right information in the right place just changes your life."

 

**This set the stage for an entirely new era of free-thinking “free” advocates"

 

****My commentary: One of the reasons trusted content curators will become a very valuable asset to the information economy:

 

****"There is always a cost to “free.”

 

****While it may not extract a payment from your bank account, there is always a “time” cost involved.

 

****Without some amount of friction, the volume of information you have to sift through skyrockets and even with good search technology, your time-costs climb dramatically.

 

****The days of “free” thinking are numbered. Look for this mindset to shift over the coming years. More details here. This article is from 9/2/2011 - Two things that caught my attention....

 

**While it is true that the Internet is eliminating many of the gatekeepers, people trying to break into a field without going through gatekeepers find it far harder to gain credibility and foster a “trust” relationship with their audiences.

 

****In the end it still boils down to trust. Can I trust the person I am reading or listening to? Are they an accurate source of information? Will it be worth the time and brainpower I’m investing?

Entrepreneurship is Our Revolution

This inspirational post was written by Steve Blank,  who teaches entrepreneurship to both undergraduate and graduate students at U.C. Berkeley, Stanford University and the Columbia University/Berkeley Joint Executive MBA program. author of the incredible book "Four Steps to the Epiphany" and so much more.

 

I wanted to share an article before Thanksgiving that really spoke to me and the hearts of many. I have been looking for days and felt when the right one came along, I would know it. This is that piece. No disrespect to the author, I moved things around and broke up paragraphs into smaller bites. They were so inspiring they almost jumped off the page.

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. So grateful to have this platform and a wonderful community of fellow travelers on this path to share the journey.

 

Intro:

 

"This Thanksgiving season, it might seem there’s less to be thankful for. One out of eleven of Americans is out of work. Many pundits say the American dream is dead and see further decline of the West, particularly the US."

 

"When it's darkest men see the stars.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

My prediction:

 

"this decade may well be our country’s finest hour


the beginning of an economic revolution as important as the scientific revolution in the 16th century and the industrial revolution in the 18th century.

 

**This entrepreneurial revolution will permanently reshape business as we know it

 

**More importantly, change the quality of life for all who come after us."

 

**It’s possible we’ll look back to this decade as the beginning of our own revolution.

 

**It may even be the dawn of a new era for a new American economy built on entrepreneurship and innovation.

 

****Our children will look back on and marvel that when it was the darkest, we saw the stars.
