We live in such exciting times. New waves of productivity are quickly eroding the establishment and creating opportunity for the small guy everywhere. Individuals can now be multi currency investors. Multi currency businesses can now be started by a single person.
A recent message entitled Multi Currency Realities looked at some of the fundamental ways the world is changing due to the internet. We saw how Google, Napster, Carig’s List, You Tube and many internet evolutions have rocked the establishment and their old ways. This all helps us small guys be multi currency and multi nationally involved.
This destructive technology will bring more people to higher standards of life, but those who do not adapt will suffer as they try to hold onto old outmoded methodology. A large chuck of society will be hurt.
Politicians will blame others for the pain. A favorite political trick to thwart anger is to use nationalism to blame other nations for negatives created by change. Yet the change is from technology and is global…no one’s (and everyone’s) fault and it is good!
Wise investors and businesses know this and look beyond these managed perceptions of the old guard. They ignore the noise in the daily media and do not trust manipulation of information by governments.
We live in a global multi currency economy. We are global, multi currency spenders and those who prosper in the era ahead will have global views and business.
We can see this future in the present.
A great example of this new era was seen last week when broadband swept away old era of broadcast in the Olympics.
I am not much of a spectator but am keen on the Olympics this year because our daughter’s significant other, Ben Marsden is competing, a member of Great Britain’s field hockey team. Go GB Go!
Here is our daughter Eleanor and Ben at our farm last summer enjoying more relaxing pursuits.
So I wanted to see the opening ceremonies as they opened!
NBC however decided (I am assuming for advertising purposes) to delay the show.
We, the market objected. A New York Times article by Brian Stelter entitled “Tape Delay by NBC Faces End Run by Online Fans” explains what happened:
“NBC, which owns the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in the United States, spent most of Friday trying to keep it that way.
“NBC’s decision to delay broadcasting the opening ceremonies by 12 hours sent people across the country to their computers to poke holes in NBC’s technological wall — by finding newsfeeds on foreign broadcasters’ Web sites and by watching clips of the ceremonies on YouTube and other sites.
“In response, NBC sent frantic requests to Web sites, asking them to take down the illicit clips and restrict authorized video to host countries. As the four-hour ceremony progressed, a game of digital whack-a-mole took place. Network executives tried to regulate leaks on the Web and shut down unauthorized video, while viewers deftly traded new links on blogs and on the Twitter site, redirecting one another to coverage from, say, Germany, or a site with a grainy Spanish-language video stream.
“As the first Summer Games of the broadband age commenced in China, old network habits have never seemed so archaic — or so irrelevant.
“The Olympics to me is a benchmark for how fast we’ve gone with technology,” Brad Adgate, the senior vice president for research at Horizon Media, a media buying firm in New York, said. “Thirty months ago, no one was talking about YouTube. Now, it’s a verb.”
This is probably the last time the Olympics can be controlled in this way.
TV (broadcast) still dominates the media. In another four years, by the Summer Games in 2012, “Olympic ad sales could be turned upside down.
All advertising and business will be different. Broadband will become more important than broadcast.
This will become an era when small is big. Chris Anderson describes this in his book “The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More”.
The last marketing era was dominated by the big guys and broadcast. This was a distribution system where it was most efficient to send one message to millions of people.
The internet has introduced the era of broadband where it is most efficient to send millions of messages to one person each. This favors us little guys.
