Watching television with Second Screen apps | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Don't Worry -- Snapchat Is Not the Future of Journalism

For the past ten days, I've been getting my news from Snapchat. I've learned stuff about internet dating, celebrity plastic surgery, Ukraine peace talks, and Bitcoin mines. But mostly, I've learned what old media thinks app media really wants. And it's not pretty.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, February 2, 7:19 PM

Quote "Well, wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering. Think of activity-specific clothing, like Hexoskin, that monitors workouts. Or medical devices like Vital Connect, a patch that tracks your vital signs and lets doctors access the data. Or earbuds that aren’t quite hearing aids but which you can wear when there’s too much background noise."

Richard Platt's curator insight, February 3, 7:08 PM

The title of the post says it all, real need and delivering value to the user.  "Wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering. Think of activity-specific clothing, like Hexoskin, that monitors workouts. Or medical devices like Vital Connect, a patch that tracks your vital signs and lets doctors access the data. Or earbuds that aren’t quite hearing aids but which you can wear when there’s too much background noise."

Vivalist's curator insight, February 5, 4:53 AM

"Intel thinks wearables will be more ubiquitous than computers or phones. And it’s right. You won’t have just one wearable—you’ll have dozens. The biggest mistake everyone makes is assuming we’re going to wear the same one all the time.

That’s because, traditionally, wearables have done bits and pieces of what our phones already do. Aside from tracking movements, what are these bands and glasses besides proxy screens for our phones?

Well, wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering."

Big Ideas Are Made Better by Organizing Ideas

Big Ideas Are Made Better by Organizing Ideas | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

"Most of us have worked to either help come up with that awesome “big idea” or perhaps support a big idea after it’s been created and sold. The purpose of a big idea is to get consumers to look up and think, “Wow, that’s amazing!” So, of course, this is still a necessary component in marketing today. 

Storyscaping helps pinpoint a new type of idea that has the ability to help define how your brand interacts with the consumer. We call it an “Organizing Idea,” and one of its main purposes is to organize the connections between the consumer and the brand story in a way that builds emotional association and inspires behavior. Think of it as an idea you use to curate your content and tactics around. ..."
