Following on from Drayton’s insight’s this video features a series of interviews with four NYC based experts talking about the future of “the website” have a view and see what you think.
I like “It’s no longer about page views and visitors, It’s about who is online now and what they are doing” shows hwo we are moving from the richness of archival data to the immediacy of the live data.
The video above features my friend Drayton Bird, talking about the Internet and how he has seen things change and develop over the years and how he has used these insights to help his businesses and those of his clients.
It really is worth a viewing for some plain common sense business points of view.
This video shows the “Human Mic” which the people who are occupying Wall Street have had to use as New York City requires a permit for “amplified sound” in public places something that the people in Occupy Wall Street surprisingly can’t get hold of.
This means that microphones and speakers are banned from Liberty Plaza, and the NYPD has also been interpreting the law to include battery-powered bullhorns. Violators can be sentenced for up to thirty days in prison.
Another interesting point is that Liberty Plaza is not actually a public park. It’s privately owned by Brookfield Office Properties, landlords to Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase, and in addition to amplified sound, they’ve also sought to ban sleeping bags, tents and other equipment from what they call “Zuccotti Park.”
However coverage of these interesting events finally seem to be picking up around the world!
The video above is a clip featuring Michael Moore and he has some very interesting points of view I will leave you with one “All great movements start with just a few people!”
