Nokia’s IdeasProject site contains this week a video interview with Don Tapscott, and four feature articles that integrate some of the ideas presented thus far on the site:
- Head in the Cloud: computing becomes virtual
As the costs of sending, storing, and processing information descend, these services are moving into the fabric of the Internet.
- Can technology actually make us more human?
Humans are tool users, and hi-tech tools can isolate us. But in the brave new world of connected communications, they can also reinforce who we are.
- Crowdsourcing and open innovation
Businesses and institutions must now recognize that innovation is no longer confined within company walls.
- Blurring the virtual and the real
Technology is increasingly connecting the real and the virtual, in real time- and making it difficult to tell the difference between the two.
Also of interest is this reflection on virtual communications by Valerie Buckingham, Nokia’s director of technology marketing.
