This blog represents Chris Anderson video talk about how the web video powers the global innovation. Social media became crowded since last few years. Social media is all about gathering crowd, share knowledge, inspire them, and receive desirable outcome. In order to gather crowd and share knowledge in old days, we were using flyers and giving the news in printed version of newspapers, which takes quite bit of time. Now-a-days technology driven social media using web video made the reduced the distance and the time to share the knowledge and get the environment awareness in the people.
In this article and video streaming, Chris Anderson described about CAI (Crowd Accelerated Innovation). You may like to know what actually CAI is, am I right? According to connectedprincipals.com, CAI explains as:
“New global communities [are] granting their members both the means and the motivation to step up their skills and broaden their imaginations. It is unleashing an unprecedented wave of innovation in thousands of different disciplines. In short, it is boosting the net sum of global talent. It is helping the world get smarter.”
“Innovation has always been a group activity. Ideas spawn from earlier ideas, bouncing from person to person and being reshaped as they go. That’s how ideas bump into other ideas, replicate, mutate, and evolve.”
“So Crowd Accelerated Innovation isn’t new. In one sense, it’s the only kind of innovation there’s ever been. What is new is that the Internet—and specifically online video—has cranked it up to a spectacular degree.”
Anderson’s video also tells the story about how different nation and different culture shared the variety of knowledge through video streaming media. For in his example the Japanese kid learn how to use dance technique (inspiration) using the YouTube video which created (innovated) by some user who is living in Detroit, USA. After learning and grasping the same dance technique, Japanese kid releases another video of his knowledge to the world. That video is view by some teenager living in California remixes (desires) and releases it again to the world. So, that’s how the innovation, inspiration and desire took place with several region of the world simultaneously.
There are some pros and cons about web video social media such as we know the earlier stages of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. When they were starting out, there were no popularity for the social media sites because lack of technology which shared the information digitally. Today think what you can’t do with social media sites. You can play games online, share photo albums to friends and family, play radio online, and by the way you can share information using blog as well. Having web video conference, we can have eye contacts, physical expression, and gesture of the person who is sitting online other side of globe. So, finally some cons about web video social media are to have right kind of technologies both the side of communication media to transmit and receive knowledge.
