Facebook – experimenting on sharing information
- created a new paradigm in terms of sharing info in a trusted community
Employees are finding their way to group chat, collaboration, etc.; do not want to use email
Blurring lines between personal and corporate world. Complicated to separate and/or connect.
Retention of people is based on 'do you like the people you work with' - the environment is important. Collaboration tools can help.
Time spent on the phone isn't coming at the cost of "long-form" content. Reading is actually increasing with millennials.
Investing in the digital environments because that's where people are headed.
Culture is key. We are not agnostic about where people get their content. The method of consumption is important b/c the experience is different.
Moving from greenfield to an established environment. Millenial corporate culture – open floor plans, IM all day, we don't like the phone.
Science, math, STEM education – is that important?
We are at risk of losing something important. We need more engineers for tech innovation. We need engineers to take English 101.
I would be much more interested in an engineer who also majored in music or painting. Not only able to build but to communicate and share.
Dustin majored in Economics and a little
Hughes studied history and literature.
People need to know when to turn off the phone. Build some good habits. I'm not a parent but I bet that is easier said than done.'
A day in the life of a person – badges, phones, GPS location --> information is being created. The cost of privacy certainly goes up – it is hard to keep things private but we should still aspire to having privacy.
