New Digital Influencers: The Coming Youthquake

New Digital Influencers: The Coming Youthquake

Elements of inspiration that went on to become my new book, What’s the Future of Business, Changing the Way Businesses Create Experiences Blame it on the youth they say. Indeed, there’s a great assumption that the future of technology falls in the hands of emergent generations. The youth of today will someday represent the majority of consumers, employees and citizens. That’s always the case, but what we don’t yet fully appreciate is just how different young adults think today. We…

A Social Publishing Model from Intel: “iQ”

Guest post by Bryan Rhoads, global content strategy, Intel Today’s web is an endless 24/7 cycle fed by content and social actions. In this cycle, brands are realizing that content is currency and social actions are the transactions in this marketplace for eyeballs and attention.

2009: A Few of My Favorite Things

What follows is a repost of my contribution to Intel’s Inside Scoop blog. As an Intel Insider, I advise the company on new media as well as share my thoughts and views on tech… CES 2010 is the next stop for all gadget lovers and technologists.

Active Listening on the Social Web; It’s Overrated

by Michael Brito Getty Images Wikipedia tells us that active listening is an intent to “listen for meaning”. Others suggest that active listening should “focus on who you are listening to, whether in a group or one-on-one, in order to understand what he or she is saying.” These are excellent definitions. But as it relates to customer interactions on the social web, active listening is only one half of the equation. Take for example, this brief illustration. A man gets…

What Inspires You?

The Social Revolution is Our Industrial Revolution Intel is also inspired by education. The company recently created Inspire, a new community that spotlights education through innovation.

There are just too many new things to introduce to people and even more reasons why they should care. The discussion usually centered on the…

Today I had the opportunity to attend Intel’s launch for its new Core 2 Duo processors. It had the “humbled,” yet significant importance, in my opinion, as the launch of the orginal Pentium chip, while still tapping into the power of next gen media.

The event celebrated the launch of the company’s new processor that runs faster, but uses a lot less power….
