How the digital revolution is changing the way we discover media RSA, London, 11 October 2007 Presentation by David Jennings Author of Net, Blogs and Rock’n’Roll Event details: http://www.rsa.org.uk/events/detail.asp?eventID=2414
Net, Blogs & Rock’n’Roll It’s the culture we choose to explore that makes us who we are
“ My favourite music is the music I haven’t yet heard” John Cage
“ The earth is seething with incoherent power and unorganised intelligence” John Buchan
Not everyone has the same investment in and passion for discovery
You know you’re a Savant when… you know you could write better questions for the local bar’s pop quiz You know you’re an Enthusiast when… you have a couple of friends who always put you on to the latest cool bands you think it would be unhealthy to be more interested in music than you already are You know you’re a Casual when… you think the frock is almost as important as the song You know you’re an Indifferent when… you hear lots of unfamiliar songs at weddings you seem to listen more to talk radio these days
If we can make the new methods work, discovery can work for us. And that makes our culture more vibrant.
Jennings’ Law: People make most of their discoveries elsewhere.
Strategies that tap into social dynamics improve your chances of being discovered.
