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.

Cristo – San Fermín

“At first the bulls were not on this journey, but unspecified date in the butchers, to get the guild won (that is why they were reserved for the section of Santo Domingo), began to accompany the shepherds at work to guide the Bulls to the square and halter.”

Over time this became popular entertainment as men began to run in front of the animals. In 1852, the bull-ring built a stable at San Fermin location. Since 1899 spent the night in the Santo Domingo corrals.

This is a typical song of san fermín…

“Uno de enero, dos de febrero,
tres de marzo, cuatro de abril,
cinco de mayo, seis de junio
siete de julio, ¡SAN FERMÍN!
A Pamplona hemos de ir,
con una media, con una media,
a Pamplona hemos de ir
con una media y un calcetín.”

or from Google’s rough translator:

“One January, two in February,
March three, four in April,
Cinco de Mayo, six in June
seventh day of July, ¡SAN FERMÍN!
In Pamplona, we must go,
in half, with half,
We go to Pamplona
and with half a sock.”

In Tokyo we choose to pay for products and food with money or phone credit. We use mobile phone that have RFID. (Radio Frequency Identification) Many stores allow scanning of phone device on the reader. Payment is automatic. On this blog the girl from Ecuador asks “if we replace phone often?” In Japan, some older students do. however, I do not. Too expensive. We buy accessories for phones. Too much accessories. We could buy another phone for all money for items.  I am sorry if this english is broken, I use Google Translate. Please enjoy the video. Thank you.  It is 20 seconds in length.  本当にありがとうございます = Thank you very much

Aruna – Bittersweet but connected

Do we take things for granted? I wonder how students our age who live in underdeveloped countries would feel if they had to all of a sudden use a computer everyday? Or own a TV? OR watch a movie? That we take for granted. We know all about kids in Africa because we are connected. They probably know very little about about us. Let’s invent some way to let them know who we are.

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?
