Sexting is becoming a bigger and bigger part of children’s lives, as technology is so widespread and social apps like Snapchat encourage children to...
Technology is everywhere in modern life. Whether we're spending our day in front of a computer screen in the office, watching Britain's Olympic hopefuls on TV or hunting for Pokémon on our smart phones, we are obsessed with the digital world. And the addiction's getting worse it seems. Experts recently suggested we are a nation in need of a 'digital detox'.
It has never been easier to connect brands with audiences, particularly with the integration of technology in everyday life. Digital innovations offer more opportunities to engage and fully immerse people in experiences, and this year's Olympics will be no exception. Brands are embracing the latest technology and adapting to a changing world of innovations to reach their consumers and enhance their experiences, whether they are in Rio or watching from home.
In Mr Robot, Elliott Alderson explicitly exploits 'easy' vulnerabilities: obvious passwords, open back doors, etc. As the world inevitably becomes more connected, risks will accompany benefits; the starting point for security must always be best-practice encryption and protocols. Just as in the 'real' world, there will be break-ins - but they become much less likely if you lock all your doors and windows.
I was three years old when British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee enabled the internet to be accessible to 'non-technical' people with the creation of the World Wide Web. I can't say the invention had much of an impact on me back when I was playing with trains or trying to eat snails. To be honest, as a three-year-old, I was oblivious to most things.
Taken at face value, Ofcom's recent report on the nation's addiction to the internet might seem like the stuff of a dystopian nightmare: we spend a full day a week online, over half of us feel "hooked" to the internet. It's all very scary and if we're being honest, it's all total nonsense... A digital detox will do nothing to make you happier, it's essentially cutting your nose to spite your face, and then the moment it's over you'll just go back to the way you are. Instead you need to change the way you use the internet. Hold it to account. Demand better of it.
Right now, almost every day seems to bring another headline that sounds like it happened in a film. From violent attacks on innocent civilians, to extreme political voices finding mainstream support, to a widening gap between the rich and poor playing out in anger and scapegoating - suddenly everything seems to be about extremes. Why is that?
So It's been 60 days since The Next Web, and initially I was going to write some basic piece my initial reactions but then I thought let's see the effects of the event. Now nearly 2 months later I thought about what had stuck with me since and below you'll find the five things that have kept me thinking.
n forward thinking entrepreneurs that are willing to disrupt and change our current system. As each innovation wave generates more data, disruption-cycle times will shorten, thereby forcing all players in the health care ecosystem to address inefficiency as they compete on quality and value creation
But there's another economy which does reward work which is exploratory in and of itself. "R&D in the arts" seems to be quite a new thing, inspired by the digital model, but not motivated by financial revenue. I worry about the arts taking on the mantle, because R&D and innovation are terms with such an overwhelming direction built in to them
