We are launching this Hub Generation blog to explore the practical, philosophical and cultural impact that the rise of social media and cloud computing is having, and will have, on our lives.
It will reflect on issues such as: how social media is making the world more transparent; how rapid knowledge sharing continues to make commercial playing fields even flatter; how the opening up of discourse is changing the nature of influence and the balance of power between businesses and consumers; it will look into how crowdsourcing models can be used to improve decision making; the power of the web to enhance social entrepreneurship; and many other fascinating topics.
Being part of the Hub Generation is the willingness and commitment towards exploring ways to harness the power of social technologies and cloud computing to make the world a better place; while not shrinking from exposing the negative sides. In this space we will mix down-to-earth practicality with a healthy mix of future thinking and philosophizing – so that we are free to boldly explore the outreaches of Hub Generation potential. And the blog posts will either be summaries of the discussions in the open Hub Generation Linkedin Group or written by invited guests.
We hope you find it enlightening, inspiring and entertaining.
