This post presents the content and discusses the process in my journey to create the “This Can Change Everything” presentation for iMedia Breakthrough Summit on March 21, 2011. It was a 30-45 minute discussion where I covered So|Lo|Mo, Gamification, Maker-movement and Social CRM/Caring after a hat-tip to Moore’s & Metcalfe’s laws combined with the “People” coefficient. With an extra 15-minutes allowance, I may have added connected TVs as a potential “return to the Family Room” theme. Regardless, these themes are ones that I believe can change everything in the coming years.

VP of Engineering Vic Gundotra delivered an Android demonstration during his keynote at Google I/O conference today at the SF Moscone Convention Center. There’s a fair amount of flattery to the Apple iPhone/iTouch user interface and definitely signals progress for handset makers, content providers/media and perhaps carriers. My verdict’s out on the carriers as their data plans make little sense to the consumer, add little value (not much benefit over wifi) and feel short-term–lots of dislocation potential within these technologies demonstrated today.
And a quick demo of “streets” view–check out what happens when he flips it into compass mode. Location based content gets a big boost when this becomes the expected consumer outcome.

In true 2.0 style I’m scribing this from my iphone about 30 minutes before 12/25/07. Ever notice how most tweats, posts, facebook messages and even emails happen “after hours” with friends in the 2.0 ecosystem? My quick theory: the Internet stack is getting so stable and rich that two guys alone in a room over a weekend can wipe out 6-months of a well funded team of 30’s first-mover advantage. The fear and urgency is real and warranted. Anyway, back to the point of the post. Our team has been so immersed in 2.0 that it took over our holiday greeting card. And like a good google app, it’s in perpetual beta. So give it a spin, pass it onto 5 friends and spread the 2.H0 cheer. Welcome to The Holidazzlr:
All our best from our families to yours. Happy Holidazes & New Year. Here’s to a healthy, happy & prosperous 2008! I’m signing off for a couple weeks. Look forward to reconnecting next year. Cheers! Silva
