Anya Kamenetz of Fast Company discusses what she sees as the most disruptive, innovative, and sustainable business ideas. As a writer, she sees a lot of marketplace and social trends affecting business and quality of life. The four big ideas she elaborates on include 1) Green without "Green" 2) Social Media for Social Change 3) Learner Centered Education 4) Better by Design. The first challenges the notion of compromise that typical green/ethical solutions carry in terms of higher prices, inconvenience, etc. Anya takes a look at alternative energy like biofuels from algae, healthy food, sources, and how the viable path for wider market adoption isn't to push the ethical agenda, but either financial or desirable qualities. The idea of compromise must be shunned. Most people don't want to change their behaviors, so create solutions that fit in well to the mass market. Social media for social change applies enabling creative communications technology and software, used by businesses, nonprofits, government, and volunteers. Education is another industry that is seeing radical change through the opportunity for people to learn on their own terms, path, and needs without a traditional university experience. How can both kids AND adults improve their skills, in fun and effective ways? Lastly, Anya discusses how the diverse design community is conversing and forging new paths on creating products and services for the greater good.
