I find these two images go together very nicely.
Kudos to Holstee for having such a vision to begin with.

Everything’s changing. Scary for many yet the opportunity is there for real change for good. Get some context on what’s happening, why it won’t be stopping and how causing some disruptions of your own can be the change we all need.
About Podcamp Halifax
On Sunday, January 22, 2012 Halifax, NS will be showing its true colours as the interactive, wired city that it has quickly become. The fourth annual Podcamp Halifax being held at Alderney Landing will feature blogging, mobile, podcasts and online video as its stars, bringing in experts and hobbyists alike to revel in social media’s glory.
Podcamp Halifax was founded by Ryan Deschamps, Jon McGinley and Craig Moore and first launched 2009. In 2011 we added Bessy Nikolaou to the organizational team. Now after its fourth iteration, we’ve got Tracy Boyer Morris and Joanne Macrae from the Hub Halifax on the team, and friendly neighbourhood web designers at hi there. We are looking forward to 2012 for a bigger and more exciting event.
A Podcamp is meant to have an open, participatory, user-generated series of presentations, discussions, or workshops. The people who attend are the presenters. In typical unconference style, audience members are encouraged to make the most of the experience by following their interests and allowing the conversation to flow both in and outside of the presentations.
I have some issues with the person Steve Jobs was – the abandoning of a young daughter tops the list – but for all his flaws when he had the right idea: he nailed it.
I hope everyone that sees this can keep this in mind through the coming year and be the kind of influence they think the world needs.
When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you’re life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.
That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.
Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

A life plan for disruption!
10 minutes of ads worth your time.
Carlsberg stunt with bikers in cinema
I kept forgetting to share this anywhere so finally I remember it and decided to add two other ads that recently made an impression .
This is just hilarious. I love the people that leave hahaha…Great concept from Duval Guillaume Modem agency.
A moving and extremely effective ad regarding marriage equality. You hate, you’re a monster.
Kenny Powers – K-Swiss CEO video (Uncensored)
Smart Branding; Kenny Powers, MFCEO of K-Swiss – Wired’s Geek Dad – “pure advertising gold. It’s also an extremely rare and unorthodox ad”.
I intended to find out the back story of this ad one way or another. Geekdad has the answers direct from 72andSunny.
This one won’t be for everyone. If you don’t know who Kenny Powers is and dislike – questionable humor – you may want to skip this one. But I didn’t even think this was a real company when I first saw the ad. Next time I see their shoes in a store I will definitely remember them and at least have a look. For some it really worked: It was actually successful in convincing me to go out and get a pair of K-Swiss Tubes. – Total Pro Sports
This ad was produced by agency http://www.72andsunny.com/ – a new fav now.
My friend Aaron Cooper suggested I check this out. And I owe him big thanks for doing so.
I just finally got around to watching this late last night and I thought it was great; entertaining, informative – an easy introduction to people not fully familar with the changes being brought about by digital culture.
The creative landscape is changing. Some talk about a revolution. Others talk about a natural evolution. These changes affect everything. From creation to distribution, from artist to consumer.
And in the spirit of the film’s topic, you can download the film for FREE from their website. (As Seth Godin says ideas that are free spread faster.)
Also have a look at the interactive version – that’s now on my to do list.
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
This quote from his Form and Function blog post today, appatly sums up our goal in helping business deal with ever changing technologies:
The question that gets asked about technology, the one that is almost always precisely the wrong question is, “How does this advance help our business?”
The correct question is, “how does this advance undermine our business model and require us/enable us to build a new one?”
When you talk to managers in the Japanese automotive industry about their worst rival, it is often not another car manufacturer that is on their mind, but the mobile phone. Even before the 2008 world economic crisis, passenger car sales in Japan had been shrinking for years. According to an industry insider, one reason was because the vast majority of young men who used to spend significant sums of money on cars now prefer shelling out $ 100 or more per month for the voice and data services of their mobile companion.
This little anecdote shows that something quite extraordinary is going on in Japan. While physical mobility is taken for granted, the mobile phone is about to supersede the car as a symbol of freedom. The attraction is understandable. The car offered people in the analog age the dream of individual mobility — to go everywhere, whenever you liked. Whereas the mobile phone enables people of the digital age to communicate and to link with almost everything and everybody on this planet from anywhere anytime.
From: The six immutable laws of mobile business by Philip Sugai, Marco Koeder, Ludovico Ciferri.
That last sentence needs to be considered by everyone in business, working for a non-profit, artists – anyone that needs to connect with other people. There is a such a profound shift under way that many people may not even notice it happening. Entire countries that missed the PC revolution are coming online for the first time via mobiles.
And it is not just happening in Japan:
Young people today would rather have the latest smartphone than a flashy car. And the number of them who can drive is plummeting. Is Britain’s love-affair with the car really over?
“Car manufacturers are worried that younger people in particular don’t aspire to own cars like we used to in the 70s, 80s, or even the 90s. Designers commonly say that teenagers today aspire to own the latest smartphone more than a car. Even car enthusiasts realise we’ve reached a tipping point.” – Tim Pollard, associate editor at CAR magazine
Improved, more environmentally friendly transportation systems built around access instead of ownership – all managed via your mobile – is just one scenario that will impact car manufacturers.
What industry are you in?
If mobile phones can take the place cars in the eyes of youth – what will mobiles do to your industry?
What can you do to embrace the opportunities pro-actively?
