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.

Salvador – Duel of Titans

Nokia launches its most advanced mobile, the N97 – and Apple launches the new iPhone 3GS in 75 countries, the third generation iPhone. The N97, is the “crown jewel” of Nokia, the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile devices.

In this world, a very big duel.

But there are many good phones now on the market, very similar to these two mobiles. LG, Blackberry and Samsung have very good touch-screen phones, like the new LG Sand (“LG Arena” in Spanish)

Michael – Innovation vs. Invention

VHS Tapes?

This is hand-drawn

All of it. It’s not a photo and was recently created by an artist. I’m still trying to find the artist. So, someone will be drawing CD covers in 10 years since we download all our music. I am sure innovation trumps invention. With every new device people think the world will change overnight. The iPhone could be an exception. Things did change overnight. Otherwise, very few inventions changed the world as quickly. There was another tape format that looked just like these VHS tapes called “Betacam.” It didn’t last for home use, but was a breakthrough format for documentary makers and television stations. Most of us are innovators. Occasionally we think of something simple that hasn’t been made before. As this blog populates with more of you, discuss your innovation here. One of you will invent something new someday. The innovation that you collaborate with others will probably lead you there. Bill Gates. Steve Jobs. Sergei Brin. Inventors or Innovators? Or just great leaders?

Joshua – Apple killer? Nope!

1984 this “keyboard” was the computer!

I bet people in high school had no idea what a computer was…old old old (old) school. No wonder my mom can text! I look forward to the students from around the world checking in next week. Cool.3581592834_36f4a24811
