New images and movie of Konza Techno City masterplan in Kenya by Manhattan-based firm SHoP Architects.


Work is already underway on the pavilion that forms part of the first phase of SHoP Architects' masterplan for Konza Techno City, a business and technology hub that's been dubbed Kenya's "silicon savannah" 40 miles from the capital, Nairobi.


The $14.5 billion project will transform an area of grassland into a city of 250,000 residents. The city is expected to generate up to 200,000 jobs by the time its final phase is completed in 2030. The first phase, to be built over five years, will house 30,000 residents and be shaped like a row of "stitches" in the overall masterplan. The east-west axis of the first phase includes a boulevard of green spaces with bridges over the wide motorway leading to Nairobi. The four initial north-south axes will comprise, from west to east, a university, a residential area, a technology and life sciences district and a business district...

Why Brands Must Embrace Visual Social Media in 2013 [infographics]

Why Brands Must Embrace Visual Social Media in 2013 [infographics] | Speculations and Trends | Scoop.it

Two infographics provide data and tips to explain why brands must leverage visual social media in 2013 to stay relevant and grow.


Today, the marketing world is still hot on the social media marketing trail, but the trail has diverged. There are different paths with cheerleaders along the way no matter which path a marketer follows.

Leerzame infografiek over het gedrag van consumenten online en hoe (klein - middelgroot - groot) bedrijven daar mee omgaan. Het managen van social media is kennelijk nog steeds een kwestie.

Meest opvallende stijger is Instagram, dat door het mobiel delen van foto's deel uitmaakt van de grote visualisering van het web. Hoewel het moeilijk te geloven is met een upload volume van, naar verluidt, 72 uur video per minuut, las ik ook voorspellingen dat video dit jaar nog 'groter' gaat worden. 

Onderaan staan trouwens de links naar een aantal goede bronnen voor dit soort info
