"The  speed  of  change  makes  you  uncomfortable  on  a  regular  basis,"  he  says.  "Thats  so  difficult  for  people  who  are  paying  mortgages,  buying  cars,  trying  to  give  their  kids  the  things  they  had,  to  get  them  through  school.  You  want  to  feel  confident  in  the  last  15  years  of  your  career  that  arer  25  or  30  years  of  effort,  its  just  going  to  work,"  he  says.  "But  it  isnt  so.  And  I  dont  think  you  ever  get  over  the  fear  of  not  knowing.”                        –  Doug  Gould  Ad  Exec  
  63. Why  should  you  care  about  Social  Media?  “In-­‐forming  is  the  individual  persons  analog  to  open-­‐sourcing,  outsourcing,  insourcing,  supply-­‐chaining,  and  offshoring.  Informing  is  the  ability  to  build  and  supply  your  own  personal  supply  chain—a  supply  chain  of  informa1on,  knowledge,  and  entertainment.  In-­‐forming  is  about  self-­‐collabora1on—becoming  your  own  self-­‐directed  and  self-­‐empowered  researcher,  editor,  and  selector  of  entertainment.                –  Thomas  Friedman
