What effective usage of video have you experienced in your workplace? or in other organizations? Tell us the story...

The "crowd-accelarated innovation" concept presented in Chris Anderson's Talks referenced above definitely is a global phenomenon. And not only for Dancers by the way...

Think about the waves of change that have hit the international political scene over the past few years, and the role videos - through social media in particular - have played. Video-enabled handheld devices in the hands of billions completely change the game, even for global media giants. Even THEY can't keep up. How did they react? They offer platforms for "witnesses" around the world to post their videos so they can bring those to your living room...

Think about the potential impact of video for education around the world. Salman Khan is on a fascinating journey, and he is not alone... There are many many examples on the web of major hubs of learning opportunities... iTunesU (Universities) on the iTunes Store is a good example and again far from the only one of its kind.

Think about the changes TED Talks have brought into your personal life...

Video is truly a very powerful technology (nothing new there...). What's new is that the technology required to make and distribute video on a global scale is cheaper than ever!

So the question is...

How does video transform the way we operate at work?

Whether you work for a large multinational corporation, a school, a governmental office, an NGO, we all need to collaborate to be effective... Think about learining, knowledge sharing, team building, innovation, etc.

What effective usage of video have you experienced in your workplace? or in other organizations? Tell us the story...

  • Aug 4 2011: In some ways it's a little scary like in a 1984 kind of way with Big Brother watching except Big Brother is made of up of everyone with different persepectives so its all brought together like a giant puzzle to connect millions of brothers to make one big brother or something along those lines.
