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.

Everyone in the world is conversing about the Apple iTablet.

Here is speculation from the Wall Street Journal.

  • Focused on the home and the classroom
  • Shared by multiple family members [Um, sorry sis, get yer own!]
  • Apple has explored electronic textbooks
  • Has virtual keyboard
  • Working with print media on text content
  • Working with CBS/Disney on video content
  • Working with EA on video game content
  • Talking with Microsoft about search and maps
  • Cable/TV providers resisting giving Apple “best” content (4-6 shows per channel), would rather it be “all” content
  • $499  price point
  • iTablet UI meant to be shareable; Apple has explored “sticky notes” as a way to share messages; facial recognition as a way of knowing who’s using it
  • Apple planning web-based version of iTunes called iTunes.com
  • “Buy” buttons would go wide on as many websites as possible
