  5. 5. (*Tyler Cowen aside) <ul><li>Outsiders and marginalized minorities often drive artistic innovation. Much of the dynamic element in American culture, for instance, has been due to blacks, Jews, and gays, as Camille Paglia has noted.  </li></ul><ul><li>Outsiders have less stake in the status quo and are more willing to take chances. They face disadvantages when competing on mainstream turf, but a differentiated product gives them some chance of obtaining a market foothold.  </li></ul><ul><li>Individuals who will not otherwise break into the market are more inclined to take risks, since they have less to lose. </li></ul><ul><li>— In Praise of Commercial Culture - Tyler Cowen </li></ul>

  12. 12. what you must do <ul><li>Learn from social entrepreneurship-esque elements </li></ul><ul><li>-team of team approaches </li></ul><ul><li>-impact (new set of KPIs) beyond pure profit </li></ul><ul><li>organize &quot;communities of interest&quot; from a horizontal, rather than vertical, approach </li></ul><ul><li>-this means talking with, not talking at </li></ul>
  13. 13. what you must get ahead of <ul><li>Social media, etc. has given everyone a voice. Now everyone YELLS. </li></ul><ul><li>Same as not having a voice. </li></ul><ul><li>The next frontier is organization/curation/convivial communities of interest bonded around shared values </li></ul><ul><li>--FB will struggles (as will all others who try to be all things to all people) </li></ul>
