Really enjoyed this presentation from from Dan Calladine of Carat’s Next Generation media series.
I enjoyed it as a link-smorgasbord of interesting sources that fit into various digital trends.
Particularly pleased for the prompt to take a look at stories like:
- Twitter predicting the success of the movie New Moon (implies that people’s reactions on social media to movies will be as important as opening weekend box office tickets in indicating the success of films).
- The complexity of breaking up with someone when your digital lives are inter-twined (especially when, as Dan highlights, US teens often give their partners their passwords as a token of trust).
- Finland’s declaration that access to 1MB broadband is a human right.
- China’s 124 million social network users across 100 platforms.
