The Future of Education, Technology, People & Innovation

February 2, 2013

memories-of-tomorrow_1In our regular look ahead James Lush of ABC Perth and I looked at what’s over the horizon for:

Education
– students will have 6 distinct careers, 14 jobs and live 100+ years; 60% of the job tasks they will do in the next 10 years have not been created yet; the traditional 3r’s – reading, writing, arithmetic- are great foundations, but our kids also need the 3 C’s – communication, collaboration and creative problem solving.

Technology – we have only just begun our technological journey and haven’t seen anything yet; and the imminent rise of the Internet of Things.

People – what will living to 120 mean?; will man and machine meld to the point where it is hard to recognise where flesh ends and machine starts?

Innovation – how Collaborative, Crowdsourcing and Co-create is changing the way we work play and live and why innovation is now a constant in our everyday world.

This is a great interview touching on lot’s of tomorrow’s horizon questions so have a listen now and let me know what you think tomorrow’s big questions are.


It’s good to be back

This weeks segment marks my sixth year on 6PR Perth radio and we kicked off with Jason Jordan and I talking about the world of possibilities that exist online and offered through our nearly 7 billion people on this planet.

We chatted about CrowdFunding and the ability to get loans and investors for your projects, ideas and brands. It is the online equivalent of traditional joint venture partners, angel investors or hitting up your family for your great can’t lose world changing business idea.

We also chatted about CrowdIdeas and the growing online industry that let’s you pay other people to do your thinking; before wrapping up talking about that enormous industry of CrowdBuying or buying online.

All in all a great start to the summer season of FutureTech.

What’s Crowdsourcing all about?

September 30, 2010

Morris Miselowski's Crowdsourcing Interview on BTalk

What does outsourcing, insourcing and swarming have to do with crowdsourcing? Lots.

Phil Dobbie of BTalk on BNET and I talk about a whole new way of getting things done. If you need an expert or an extra set of hands to perform a task, then crowdsource it.

As you’ll hear, in many cases the crowd is being used to create a solution they ultimately buy — even to the extent of building a motor vehicle. It’s given rise to the term “prosumer”.
