Universal Design Thinking

Having lost his ability to walk at age 5, and the ability to breathe solely on his own later in life, Dr. Victor Pineda has grown to become the consummate multi-hyphenate: scholar, professor, activist, filmmaker, international guest speaker, social design thinker, and White House appointee under President Obama. His day job affords him the ability to travel the world, working with governments, businesses, and locals on inclusion initiatives for persons with disabilities. His passions afford him a creative twist on everything he does, from adapting and creating new technologies, to working with the likes of Microsoft and the UN. On Innovation Crush, Victor dishes on several principles of innovation from universal design thinking, to the power of simplification, to policy change. More at worldenabled.org.

Businesses Behind Bars with Chris Redlitz

5 years ago, Chris Redlitz walked into San Quentin prison for the first time. He came out a changed man...luckily only 3 hours later. The serial entrepreneur and technology visionary had reluctantly visited to speak to inmates about entrepreneurship, but the passion he witnessed in that room convinced him to start The Last Mile, a business and technology incubator inside San Quentin, the oldest prison in California. On Innovation Crush, Chris walks us through his passion, personal transformation, the differences between incarcerated entrepreneurs and free businessmen...oh, and that one time he sailed from California to Hawaii.

Social Media Inflation Index

"Call it social media inflation. Nominally, you may have a lot more followers this year — but if your audience growth didn’t outpace the competition or the industry average, then the value of your social audience likely depreciated.

Sure, some brands grow “smarter” than others. Sweepstakes and giveaways, for example, might result in more followers, but are less likely to convert “likes” into loyal customers. But without historical and competitive context, reporting on follower growth is an empty, self-congratulatory exercise.

Enter the 2016 Social Media Inflation Index. We used the TrackMaven digital analytics software platform to analyze a sample of 26,965 brands across all industries. The results, presented in the summary graph below, display the median monthly follower growth percentage per brand on five major social networks — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest — across 2015."

Just how good is your growth? As more people join social networks worldwide, is the value of your brand audeince depreciating?

What is Culture Track?

"Culture Track is the largest tracking study focused exclusively on the ever-changing attitudes and behaviors of U.S. cultural consumers, as well as the trends in attendance and the motivators and barriers that affect participation. It has been fielded six times since 2001.

Culture Track 2014 is the product of over a decade of LaPlaca Cohen’s research and dedication to producing a current, highly-actionable resource for the leading cultural institutions across the nation.

The 2014 edition of Culture Track arrives at a pivotal moment for cultural organizations nationwide. Audience behaviors and expectations are changing rapidly, driven by ever-multiplying and diversifying options for spending leisure time, and by technology developments that are fundamentally altering the way we interface with our world. The implications for cultural institutions are significant and, without close study, difficult to determine." [Introduction p. 1]

LaPlaca Cohen worked in partnership with research firm Campbell Rinker to field Culture Track 2014. The study was conducted using a nationwide online survey with 4,026 respondents, representing all 50 states. Respondents were U.S. residents ages 18 or over who were double-confirmed for interest in cultural events and attendance to at least one cultural activity in the past year. The study defines cultural participation as attendance to a specific range of cultural activities, such as museums/art exhibits, theater, music, file festival, opera, zoos, botantical gardents, and more.

Predict This!

Video

Under the alias of Dr. Data, Eric Siegel, Ph.D., founder of Predictive Analytics World and author of the popular and critically acclaimed "Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie or Die," today released the first known rap video about predictive analytics in existence.

While nerdcore and other sub-genres of hip hop may tread upon niche topics, “PREDICT THIS!” is the first pop song to feature infotainment value via legitimate academic/tech content with Gangnam Style (from Psy) humor, and media-blending 80’s throwback visuals.

Featuring green-screen technology, a faux TED talk, and choreographed dance routines featuring "sexy geeks," the video aims to spread the word about both the power of prediction: nerds are the new cool, data is the new oil, and predictive analytics is the latest evolutionary step of the Information Age.

When asked to comment, Dr. Siegel said, "I only answer to 'Dr. Data' now." After we apologized, the award-winning author graced us with, "Look, I’ve dropped my iPhone a million times. But today I dropped a rap video for the very first time." Siegel then muttered something about his friends and family suggesting he not quit his day job.
