Supernova 2009: Taking Data Seriously [video]

Andreas Weigend talks about the revolution of the web and how important it is to “take data seriously”

The amount of data created by each person doubles roughly every one or two years!

Furthermore, 10 billion pieces of content are shared per month through the Facebook share button?!

Taking data seriously is dividing into categories: (1) Customer to Business, (2) Customer to Customer and (3) Customer to the World.

Based on the video above, I would like to know what you think: Are we really taking data seriously? Are we using it efficiently to attract customers, build loyalty, maintain friendships, educate and learn?

Verizon CEO: “Technology Will Make Hulu Irrelevant” [video]

The companies that continues to innovate will be able to extend their brand and their business model longer than the people who don’t innovate“. Ivan Seidenberg, Verizon CEO

Hulu connects the physical world with the digital world yet through certain, often less than simple steps. Therefore, and logically speaking, Hulu is bound to become obsolete in a few years because there definitely will be other technologies which will certainly provide even simpler and more innovative grounds to allowing for a more integrated connection between our world and what’s on the web.

Verizon’s CEO refers to the Sixth Sense concept, which was introduced to the world a few months ago. According to him, concepts like these will render other available technologies useless in a few years, and I totally agree: who needs to sit at home to watch the news when it can be streamed at any time and place and projected on to a wall?

Finally and to wrap up this post, I’d like to ask you a few questions: Have you ever used Hulu? Do you agree that it will soon vanish? What other technologies do you know of and which have the ability to take over our world in a few years?
