Now playingSpaceCollective Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction.Introduction Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
Last week on MWC at Barcelona, Microsoft launch the new Windows Phone 7 Series, the last version of his mobile version of windows, specially focused on expand the Zune interface. It seems that they was hearing the good feedback (I wrote a post) about ZuneHD interface.
Last week I was enjoying the more interesting speech in months, for me, a person who is continuously interested on how technology and the evolution of the media can influence our diary lives or costumes, and, surely for you too.
What for you? Certainly, if you are visiting this network, you are interested on futuristic concepts, and how technology can evolve or how can help to us to do it. With this on one hand, everyone loves to look back; do an exercise to understand how the progress connects step by step over history. This is an outstanding exercise of perspective, and helps us to know from where the concepts come.
The speaker, Tomi Ahonen explains this exercise with and incredible lucid and direct narration, plenty of data and concept relations. Also, Tomi brings a commercial layer for all of this, probably you don't love this commercial smell, but it show how easy is to discover blue oceans (new business models on a new media).
If you see the video (very recommended), you can clearly explain or have a global view about the 7 new Medias of our history. Personally, I think this where the speech shows the more amazing ideas and connections. Tomi explains it with an agile and motivated way. And, like he, I'm in love of the opportunities of this globally established new media (as you can see, I participate on and Adobe User Group for mobile devices).
On the other hand, we have a fluently and direct exposition of what are the reasons which turn mobile the best and better mass new media until now. An irrefutable and surprising list of acts that you can only affirm.
Well, it will be better that you enjoy the speech, and mature all this concepts for yourself :)

Tomi T Ahonen is an author of six bestselling hardcover books as well as three new eBooks on mobile telecoms and digital convergence is the former Nokia executive who lectures at short courses at Oxford University, is a most widely respected expert in high tech, already referenced in over 50 books by other authors.
The people behind the "Shift happens" series has revealed a new video about how media is rapidly converging. Working with XPlane, the video is actually a promotion of a new conference run by The Economist, the Media Convergence Forum.
Another great example of data visualization, with a fascinating, and stunningly vast story.
Before this, I posted the third version of his presentation (my favourite until now), and you've probably saw another versions on internet. This is the work of Karl Fisch and Scott McLeod, who in the last two years, have produced three videos:
3.0 for 2008 - Newly Revised Edition Created by Karl Fisch, and modified by Scott McLeod; Globalization & The Information Age. It was even adapted by Sony BMG at an executive meeting they held in Rome this year. Credits are also given to Scott McLeod, Jeff Brenman.
We have a lot of homework, and every day, less time to do it. A wise vision will be doing things once in the correct way (don't waste time redoing things, because we haven't this time)
This is one of my playlist at Youtube. It contains a good perspective about how can be "watching throught a little window" in a near future. There are 4 videos about personal projects (TMPO, Meetme, Maremon and LayoutManager)and other from Nokia design. Another meaning of the title is revelated at the end of the post.
Press material of TMPO distributed at Adobe MAX Chicago 2007
P.D.: With these videos, you are watching a reduced version of material that is available on a bigger resolution. It was a frustating experience? No, here we have a simple test that explain "another point of view" of the shared data. Like we have another window to enjoy on another situations, we can recycle our culture, like we were always doing, oposite from create a new individual platforms or medias.
