The New Kodak Moment and the Rise of Experience Innovation

The New Kodak Moment and the Rise of Experience Innovation

I live several lives. As a digital analyst and futurist, I study disruptive technology and its impact on businesses and markets. As a digital anthropologist, I study the effects of disruptive technology on societies and us as individuals. In both cases, I am frequently asked to share the “state of” industries and also play out defined scenarios over the next several years. Recently, I took a break from my industry work to focus on the personal side of digital disruption…

Mind, Body, Spirit with Dr. Kayte

One of the things I love most about the Lifescale experience, is the entirely new adventures on which I’m whisked away. One such experience was the result of attending “The Rising Glen Collective” in Hollywood recently. I was asked to present on the story behind the book to a curated group of artists, entrepreneurs, athletes, experts and executives in an intimate setting–in a beautiful Hollywood Hills home over looking Los Angeles. Boy, was I nervous. Following the event, I met…

There Isn’t an App for That: The Formula for Productivity, Happiness and Creativity Starts Within

There Isn’t an App for That: The Formula for Productivity, Happiness and Creativity Starts Within

We didn’t lose our ability to focus or be creative, we were programmed away from it, toward a direction where our attention is heavily monetized. It’s by design.  The challenge is two fold. For those who remember life before smartphones and social media, memories serve as a benchmark for comparison. We tend to remember our analog lives and activities with a sense of nostalgia and also disbelief. After all, we’ve since learned to become digital-first in most things we do…
