Does it work? I don’t care. I love it!

We all remember Eyjafjallajökull. The ash stopped Europe – and the world was on hold for a while. Iceland’s visitor numbers have dropped drastically since this event. Now the Icelandic government tries to get the tourists back to the beautiful island. They have created an innovative “Inspired by Iceland” campaign to help the tourism industry. I don’t know if this will help – but i love this YouTube clip. It makes me happy :) Thnx Iceland.

“The Inspired By Iceland”: the Icelandic government, Reykjavik city, Trade Council of Iceland, Tourist Board of Iceland and the Travel Industry Association.

My two favorite videos at the moment: How is YouTube driving innovation? And the beauty of data visualization

The first one is about innovation
TED’s Chris Anderson says the rise of web video is driving a worldwide phenomenon he calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation – a self-fueling cycle of learning that he thinks would be as significant as the invention of print. Chris Anderson points out three things organizations need to make it happen:
  1. A crowd – a group of people who share a common interest
  2. Lights – open visibility – to see what people are doing
  3. Desire - innovation is hard work.

The 2nd one: The beauty of data visualization
This is really a good one. David McCandless is just magical…he turns complex data sets into beautiful, simple diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections. David thinks that good design is the best way to navigate through information overload. He even suggest that this will change the way we see the world.

Hvor lett er det å etablere ny standard? Hvem tror de kan utkonkurrere Facebook eller YouTube?

Det er noe som heter "Fish where the fish are". Lag ikke egne fiskedammer, men bruk de fiskedammene hvor det allerede er masse fisk. Eller sagt på en annen måte: Hvorfor etablere egen videokanal når alle er på Youtube? Vær der folk er. Lydbokforlaget prøver på noe helt annet:   
 
Lydbokforlagets sjef Herborg Hongset kommer nok til å sette en eller flere fisker i halsen når hun innser at hennes forsøk på å innføre en ny teknologisk standard for lydbøker (Digikort) vil floppe. Jeg tror rett og slett folk flest vil ha lydbøker på de spillerne de selv velger eller på tjenester som Spotify. Folk vil ikke dra med seg ekstra spilleutstyr og en bunke digitale lagringskort i bankkortformat. Dette tror jeg blir en flopp! Dessverre. For bare håpe Lydbokforlaget ikke har spyttet inn for mye penger.
 
Hva tror du?
