Rise of the Technology Class

These conversations are between students from Ecuador, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the US who see technology serving a higher purpose: A counter-culture to their predecessors. This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

New art – meets old:

Thousands flocked to Carrousel du Louvre on Saturday, the scene of France’s first Apple Store opening.

Beneath the Louvre Museum in Paris one can find a host of high-end shops and eateries and can now also find France’s first Apple store. Saturday saw the store’s opening, and thousands were on hand to peruse Apple’s current products – take advantage of the Genius Bar’s knowledgeable staff.

During a press briefing at the new location, Apple executives noted that France will see the fastest rate of new store openings of any other country to date. The Montpellier store will open Nov. 14 and in 2010 a store near the Opera Ganier.
