Hi Sam,

Welcome to the 31st edition of this email. Did you know you can read past editions right here?

I’ve heard Japan is starting to swelter! On the weekend in Melbourne I started to see my misty breath in the air. The chill is starting to set in down here in the south.

Happily I’m at a snowy mountain right now…

Blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies continue to awe and inspire me with ideas for the future. Join me in reading these fascinating insights over a coffee and a spectacular view:

“A tipping point could be reached where people will realize ‘that data belongs to me.'”

  • Examples of Blockchain uses¬†beyond money / currency. Thx Lucy. (Claire S¬†–¬†there’s a good Tesla Powerwall example.) 
  • “What if you opened Spotify and paid the artist directly?”
  • “Lots of great things have happened, but overall the benefits of the digital age have been asymmetrical. For example, we have this great asset of data that‚Äôs been created by us, and yet we don‚Äôt get to keep it. It‚Äôs owned by a tiny handful” 
  • “The blockchain is …a platform for truth and it‚Äôs a platform for trust. The implications are staggering, not just for the financial-services industry but also right across virtually every aspect of society.”¬†McKinsey & co.
  • How¬†Blockchains will transform markets¬†from master-tweeter Naval.
  • Keep¬†up to date with cryptocurrencies¬†– especially good to read if you’re investing¬†in BTC, ETH¬†etc.
  • Current prices¬†of cryptocurrencies. Last week there were 863 currencies listed here and now…
  • If you’re thinking of investing in Ethereum and aren’t sure where to start,¬†this could inform you. It could also be a bit too heavy on words such as “exchanges”. If so, read below this amazing view…

Book a 45 minute session with me to get a quick-start on learning about Blockchain tech and cryptocurrencies, setting up an online wallet, ask your current questions and receive tailored links.

Wearables, IoT, Nanotechnology, OOH & Alexa

Hi,

Welcome to the 13th edition of this email. Did you know you can read all past editions in our archive?

The subject this time round is Wearables, the Internet of Things, Nanotechnology & OOH.


Thank you!¬†I received lots of comments, replies and thank yous after the last newsletter. It’s¬†great to hear the LinkedIn tips worked well. ¬†Check in here if you missed them.

If you liked that¬†there are few more¬†here¬†(“How I’ve improved the number of people who viewed my¬†LinkedIn profile by 700%” –¬†updated this week).


Also check out this digital leadership tool to see topics you could learn.

Keep on learning more about digital, agility, data security, and more.

Go go go!

WWWearables

Imagine swiping the air around your sleeve to dismiss a phonecall while you’re riding your bike. Check out this Levis clip¬†with¬†Project Jacquard technology (Google).¬†Includes¬†nanotechnology¬†history, 3D-printed clothes and shoes, as well as stripes that are solar panels. Incredible!

The Internet of Things and Alexa

I’d explain it, though this¬†article by Tim O’Reilly is so worth reading. Take 5 mins to learn about¬†the Internet of Things (IoT), how homes are transforming and what new home tech (Alexa) can do.

Next up: OOH

“Ultimately, new forms of OOH [out-of-home advertising]¬†will help foster a more responsive city that allows for dynamic campaigns, meaningful messaging and the best user experiences across the board.”

Trends Bingo

Q: What year do you think you’ll be designing your own affordable clothing (complete with sensors)?


How are you going online?

What has your experience been like with improving your online profile (LinkedIn, personal or company website, other social media sites) and growing your audience or influence online? Have you run into any hurdles? If so, what do you think could be the reason it hasn’t worked for you yet?¬†Reply to let me know, I’m keen to help.

PPS. Wisdom, inspiration and ideas ~

  • Newly funded, hot off the press wearables are here. Also includes the new¬†Virtual Reality (VR) favourite “Gravity Sketch”.
  • Smart clothing. Excellent.
  • Never seen the breadth of wearables? Take 5 mins to scan this fascinating list of “50 wearable tech gamechangers for 2016” or¬†1 min to scan these¬†impressive images here on Pinterest¬†(collected a few years ago for a¬†new venture).

My goal is to help people have online presence, as well as save time and reduce career risks. Knowing about business and tech developments and planning well can help.
