日渐崛起的个人

我们正以前所未有的方式见证个人的崛起。

巨大的技术进步和互联互通正在大幅提升世界各地个人的能力。

近50亿人在使用移动电话,在这些设备中,超过一半是智能手机。

社交平台从根本上改变了人们交流、互动和组织生活的方式:从在维基百科(Wikipedia)、微信和推特(Twitter)上分享信息和组织知识,到在Kickstarter上资助新项目,或在Airbnb、Uber或Airtasker上的p2p市场。

移动支付在中国的使用率是美国的11倍。

中国的科技公司阿里巴巴、腾讯和百度在创新、客户规模、盈利能力和社会影响力方面可以与Facebook、谷歌和亚马逊相匹敌。

人们越来越期待体验和个性化,而不是消费。

获取信息不仅改变了我们的消费方式,也改变了我们与公司互动的方式,改变了我们对产品和服务的影响。

这个大趋势在不同的地区会有很大的不同。

那些无法接触到大多数人都能接触到的技术和网络的人,将感到越来越没有力量。

“零工”经济等新的组织形式,也引发了有关企业责任、工人地位和权利的新问题。

随着越来越多的个人接入互联网服务,以及大型社交平台发明新的方式吸引人们进入自己的生态系统,这种大趋势正在加速发展。

在给予人们话语权的同时,同样的数据操作和商业模式也放大了错误信息和虚假信息、有害的和极端的内容。

青少年中抑郁、压力和焦虑的比例上升与社交媒体的使用和智能手机的引入有关。

然而,社交媒体也可能成为改善、个性化、传递心理健康信息的机会。

随着这一趋势继续扩大我们的声音,政府和个人需要理解访问和隐私之间、授权和孤立之间的权衡。

Blank Post-It notes affixed to a wall. A hand is taking one of them off
You say invention, I say innovation

When is an invention not innovative, how do innovation ‘hubs’ kill the very spark they seek to flame and why women may have the best innovative mindset.
