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.

Kaito – breaking sterotypes…being the artist

Hammer

Some of my friends in the US do not know how much the center of culture can start in Tokyo. Imagine please New York, Paris, London, Berlin and San Paulo all of them in to one city. That is Tokyo. Japan is an island. It is difficult for Western people to make the trip. Culture in form of art and music begin here and develops. Invents itself. Yes, we are also the influence of the eastern and western world culture. The force of artistic culture is so powerful here that it is feeling more than the technology advances of our culture. Please see the following link for a new movement to share artistic talent through expression and content. Thank you very much.

Nikolas – Bitter Sweet

To me technology is bitter sweet. It has allowed for great success and has made life easier. On the flip side it has also consumed peoples lives and has, in some ways, made us lazy as a society. I have seen people go crazy without their cell phones and feel like they are missing out on something big whenever they do not have it. Whenever I don’t have my cell phone it is a very liberating feeling and Im not checking something every five minutes. So I love technology and the doors it opens, but I try not to depend on it too much.
