Globalization in an Information Age
A great video created by Karl Fisch, and modified by Scott McLeod, regarding globalization and the information age:
glumbert – Shift Happens
The video gives us a lot to think about. These are exponential times. Although the population is growing, American does not have the educational nor the technological dominance a world power should have. Today, people have more jobs in ten years than our parents had in a lifetime. New jobs are flooding the market, and we are struggling to keep up!
Socially, we’re getting closer and closer to a community of cyborgs. People meet their spouses online, MySpace is one of the most-visited sites. And we transmit and create information in larger quantities than ever before.
The times are a-changing, in ways our hippy parents couldn’t have dreamed. How do we, as a socially conscious business, react to this cultural shift?
Notice the trends: education, social entrepreneurship, a desire for authenticity. React accordingly, consciously, and meaningfully.
