While aggregation and syndication are the some of the watchwords of the internet, in an interesting article in Wired magazine, they’ve given me another phrase to think of: Crowd Accelerated Innovation. That article, written by Chris Anderson, made me start thinking of my own Center’s website, and the website’s of so many companies that I’ve visited lately. Here at the Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship, we’re capturing everything we can on video and getting ready to use them in our soon-to-be-updated website. I’ve also passed on the information to two of my daughters who are thinking of launching their own business. No matter what you’re doing…video makes things so much more interesting and exciting for the viewer/reader of your website.
From the article:
I believe that the arrival of free online video may turn out to be just as significant a media development as the arrival of print. It is creating new global communities, granting their members both the means and the motivation to step up their skills and broaden their imaginations. It is unleashing an unprecedented wave of innovation in thousands of different disciplines: some trivial, some niche in the extreme, some central to solving humanity’s problems. In short, it is boosting the net sum of global talent. It is helping the world get smarter.
