Brainwashing: ¡desnudando la propia mente! - Consumer Psyco “No intentes desnudar la mente del consumidor, si no desnudas primero la tuya propia”. Cuando decidimos empezar la aventura empresarial de Consumer Truth no teníamos idea de que íbamos a terminar – entre otras actividades- diseñando y dirigiendo Workshops Empresariales para desnudar la propia mente y accionar consumer Insights. La verdad que hasta ese momento, el único concepto de desnudez que yo tenía era el del consumidor de afuera, no el del ejecutivo de adentro. Pero resulta que la mente del ejecutivo suele ser – a veces- la más complicada, la más difícil de cambiar, y a veces, la menos dispuesta a “desnudarse” (desaprender). Los Insights consisten en mirar adentro del alma humana y activar estrategias a partir de estos descubrimientos o revelaciones Los inicios del Brainwashing personal Bueno un día todo cambió. Los Insights surgen de la disrupción mental, de la capacidad de ver diferente o detrás de lo obvio. ¿Como desnudar la propia mente? Si no experimentas, no te convences.

Cisco: 50 Billion Things on the Internet by 2020 [Infographic] The Internet of Things, when real world objects are connected to the Internet, is a trend that we've been actively tracking since early 2009. So far a lot of big technology infrastructure and solutions companies have gotten behind the trend, for the simple reason that they see a huge market opportunity. As more and more 'things' go on the Net, it creates more demand for network infrastructure like sensors and routers. Enter the likes of Cisco and Verizon Wireless. Likewise, more technology solutions will be developed to upload and manage data from real world objects. Cisco has designed an infographic that offers a simple example of how Internet of Things will affect you in your everyday life. There has been some contention about the number of connected things and by when. Regardless, as the infographic below shows, the number of things connected to the Internet has already exceeded the number of people on earth. Infographic via All Things D

Millennials' Judgments About Recent Trends Not So Different This is part of a Pew Research Center series of reports exploring the behaviors, values and opinions of the teens and twenty-somethings that make up the Millennial Generation As might be expected, members of the Millennial generation are enthusiastic about the technological and communication advances of the past decade. They are also highly accepting of societal changes such as the greater availability of green products and more racial and ethnic diversity. What may be less expected is that, in many cases, they are not much different from the age groups that precede them. And on at least one issue — the advent of reality TV shows — their views differ not at all from those of the oldest Americans. A recent survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press found that most Americans, young and old, offer a gloomy assessment of the past decade. When asked about internet blogs, a plurality of Americans (36%) say they have not made much of a difference.

Almost All Millennials Accept Interracial Dating and Marriage This is part of a Pew Research Center series of reports exploring the behaviors, values and opinions of the teens and twenty-somethings that make up the Millennial Generation Over the last several decades, the American public has grown increasingly accepting of interracial dating and marriage. This shift in opinion has been driven both by attitude change among individuals generally and by the fact that over the period, successive generations have reached adulthood with more racially liberal views than earlier generations. The Pew Research Center’s recent report on racial attitudes in the U.S., finds that an overwhelming majority of Millennials, regardless of race, say they would be fine with a family member’s marriage to someone of a different racial or ethnic group. Compared with older groups, particularly Americans ages 50 or older, Millennials are significantly more likely to be accepting of interracial marriage. Shift in Public Attitudes over Time

La carte d’un monde espionné OWNI en partenariat avec Wikileaks vous propose cette carte interactive permettant d'identifier toutes les sociétés à travers le monde qui développent et vendent des systèmes d'interception massives. Depuis le mois de septembre dernier, OWNI, en partenariat avec WikiLeaks et cinq autres médias, a mis à jour les activités et les technologies des sociétés – souvent proches des services de renseignement et des institutions militaires – à l’origine de ce nouveau marché de l’interception massive. Pour une part très significative, ces industriels discrets sont implantés dans des démocraties occidentales. Ils fournissent en matériels d’écoutes et d’interception de masse leur propre gouvernement mais aussi de nombreuses dictatures. Ces matériels appartiennent à cinq grandes catégories : Les Spy Files sont diffusés par WikiLeaks à cette adresse.

The Millennials: Confident. Connected. Open to Change. Executive Summary Generations, like people, have personalities, and Millennials — the American teens and twenty-somethings who are making the passage into adulthood at the start of a new millennium — have begun to forge theirs: confident, self-expressive, liberal, upbeat and open to change. They are more ethnically and racially diverse than older adults. They’re less religious, less likely to have served in the military, and are on track to become the most educated generation in American history. Their entry into careers and first jobs has been badly set back by the Great Recession, but they are more upbeat than their elders about their own economic futures as well as about the overall state of the nation.(See chapter 4 in the full report) They embrace multiple modes of self-expression. Nearly one-in-four have a piercing in some place other than an earlobe — about six times the share of older adults who’ve done this. They get along well with their parents. They respect their elders.

Social Bookmarking and Annotating The driving force behind the Web 2.0 revolution is a spirit of intellectual philanthropy and collective intelligence that is made possible by new technologies for communication, collaboration and information management. One of the best examples of collective intelligence in action are the wide range of social bookmarking applications that have been embraced in recent years. Social Bookmarking Overview Designed as information management tools that allow users to categorize web finds through the use of tags---keywords that allow for easy searching and grouping of content---social bookmarking applications take advantage of the wisdom of millions of users to identify resources worth exploring. When users make their bookmarks and tag collections public, however, their favorite resources become instantly available---and searchable---to anyone who cares to look. For example, I'm always highly motivated by Will Richardson. Well, you can....and I do! And we don't even know one another!
