É Preciso Inovar o Marketing


Tecnologia & Gestão

O marketing que conhecemos, com suas idiossincrasias e desgovernanças irá acabar logo. Por quê? Porque é antieconômico, porque não gosta de indicadores, porque tem alergia de controle, porque gasta demais, porque tem entregado de menos. Exceções à parte, o que era para ser o motor mercadológico e de inovação das empresas, acabou se especializando em engordar e se entender mais importante do que realmente é.

O mercado demanda mudanças drásticas, impondo a inovação como resposta para este “Novo Marketing”. Essas mudanças para o marketing atual serão conceituais, de expectativas, de estrutura e de orçamento. Ou seja, será mais governança e menos festa! Mais raciocínio e menos energia!

As principais tendências que nortearão a inovação para este Novo Marketing compreendem a fatores ligados a questões econômicas, sociais, de consumo, de tecnologias, mídias, canais e de modelos de negócio, dentre outras. Vejamos algumas das principais:

–  Globalização -> Meta-Concorrência -> Agilidade ->…

Literature, Ethics, Physics: All In Video Games At This School


Two years before the school opened in 2010, principal Lin Holvik was mandated to build a school for the future, and she focused on creating both the physical and curricular space for teachers to experiment with video games.

Video Games at Norwegian SchoolWe have a sociocultural view of learning,” explained Holvik, “and believe in sharing and constructing knowledge together. We also strongly encourage innovation and believe that freedom to fail should be much more emphasized.” And so fittingly, video games have been used to help foster collaboration and an appreciation for the art of failure.

“We have been well aware of and interested in the potential of games in school for a long time,” Holvik added, describing how video games were part of the school’s DNA.

A Philosopher’s Mind Trip – Jason Silva


The Atlantic describes futurist and philosopher Jason Silva as “A Timothy Leary of the Viral Video Age.A self-professed “wonderjunkie” Silva is the creator of “Shots of Awe,” micro-documentaries that explore creativity, innovation, futurism, technology and the human condition. In this episode, Jason dives into the ritual of experiential design, a visceral practice he uses to spark creativity during a “flow state” in order to reach a deeper awareness.

Can China Become a Leading Global Innovator?


BusinessWorld

Assembled in China but designed in California, Japan, or Europe.

Thats been the story of Chinas economic rise for the past 30 years.

Few if any of Chinas companies are considered innovative by global standards – and Nobel prizes for science remain frustratingly elusive.

But China wants to be more than the factory of the world and its government knows it has to move on from a “beg, borrow or steal” strategy on innovation if it is to keep growing its economy.

Will it be able to do this?

City Leaders and Tech Entrepreneurship


David Cummings on Startups

Nationwide there’s a real push right now among city leaders to brand their region as a tech entrepreneurship hub. Tech has been hot for several years and every city can point to a local success story within the past 24 months. As tech becomes more pervasive and more industries are affected by it, it only makes sense that cities want to capitalize on it.

Here are a few thoughts on why city leaders are so excited about tech entrepreneurship:

  • Cities are either growing or shrinking, so it makes sense to focus on a growth industry
  • The internet provides for amazing distribution, collaboration, and innovation anywhere, so the need to be in a major hub has been greatly diminished
  • The majority of new jobs created over the next 10 years will come from companies that aren’t in existence today
  • Tech jobs are much higher paying than normal jobs
  • Tech entrepreneurs that…

Disruptive Technology Is Changing How Kids Learn


TIME

In a few weeks, the halls of a school in Nanuet, N.Y., will teem with mini race cars. The vehicles will sport custom-designed wheels, each set carefully tuned in diameter and thickness to achieve maximum speed.

But the cars’ makers aren’t college-level engineers; they’re middle-school students attempting to learn about physics and technology by using a device that combines both–the school’s 3-D printer. “It’s rewriting what’s possible” in education, says Vinny Garrison, the teacher who organizes the races.

It’s not the only innovation doing so. Nearly three-fourths of U.S. teachers use technology to motivate students to learn, according to a survey by PBS LearningMedia. And that tech is getting smarter: students can now virtually tour ancient worlds to learn history, take quizzes via smartphone and more.

Most of the changes are designed to better prepare U.S. students for careers in fast-growing fields like science and engineering. But they can come…

Tim Berners-Lee’s Campaign for Open Data


ideas.ted.com

Think back: Before Yo, before the cloud, before ubiquitous mobile connectivity, you first interacted with the Internet in your desktop browser. Sir Tim Berners-Lee and others who built the first database of linked information that later became the web haven’t stopped thinking about those early days, and how we can defend the open culture the Internet had then. For Berners-Lee (Watch: Tim Berners-Lee: A Magna Carta for the web) we have to be more than passive consumers: “We can’t just use the web; we have to worry about the underlying structure of the whole thing,” he says in his 2014 talk. That’s why Berners-Lee is focusing on a network of open, linked data. To find out more, explore 12 resources provided by the computer scientist.

Polaroid’s Cube – The Camera That Wants to Take Down GoPro


 Update (July 6, 2015): GoPro releases Hero 4 Session, “a cube-shaped camera that measures less than 1.5 inches long on every side”.
Nice try GoPro.
«$400 for a $130 Hero? Specs similar to a Hero2? GoPro really is losing its edge in the action camera market».
 You can’t deny that GoPro is losing its edge in the action camera market for other low-cost with better price/quality racio than GoPro’s +$300 cameras. Not everyone wants and is able to spend more than $300 on an action camera.

Polaroid recently launched the Cube (August 13, 2014), a block-like video camera with a magnet that clings to any metal surface.

Polaroid CUBE“The $100 camera records 1080p wide-angle videos, uses microSD cards for storage, can record 90 minutes of video on a single charge and can also be mounted on other services, like GoPro’s cameras, with various mounting kits.” –  Leo Sun
