Markets need to aim at serving buyers. Buyers serve markets via consumption. Consumption is relevant to need, convenience, price and experience. Given the technological revolution it seems obvious that a new marketplace will indeed emerge soon than later. The new marketplace will not be designed by the “silo mentality of old markets” rather it will be created by those who understand the value of an “open marketplace"

"Normal," in other words, isn't quite like anything we've seen in our lifetime. But too often companies become so caught up in trying to survive that they neglect long-term strategy altogether. They forget that stabilizing your balance sheet is necessary not in order to stand still, but in order to gain ground.in reference to:

Very Interesting perspective:
"I don't believe that the secondary market will replace the public markets and M&A as the primary liquidity options for venture backed startups. I think it's a third choice that we need. And I think it represents a tier in the market that is missing between venture capital and the public equity markets."

Apprentice yourself to great work. Draw inspiration and learn from what others are doing.
Give side projects some front & center time. This will become your future, after all.
Focus on delicious details. Growth is about doing small things right. There are huge payoffs from tweaking small things.
Go long. We have no attention spans. But things take time. This is one to one … get into a long time horizon.
Share. Generate more value than you capture.
Ironically, it takes courage to do the things you love."

“You must give birth to your images.
They are the future waiting to be born.
Fear not the strangeness you feel.
The future must enter you
Long before it happens.
Just wait for the birth,
for the hour of new clarity.
Erich Maria Rilke"

Group Network Theory
If you want to begin to understand the direction that the internet is moving and if you want to harness the power of groups in your own business then spending 42 minutes watching Clay Shirky is time well spent
Clay Shirky explains group network theory in a simple and easy to understand way and I have begun applying his models to various situations and circumstances which I will explore in later blog posts. His basic premise is that groups go through 4 stages of development
4. Collective action
Tools To Change The World
Social Media has given us the tools to move rapidly through each of these stages and its now up to us as global internet citizens to decide what type of future we would like to create. The groups and networks you create today will be shaping the course of future history. We have never had such an opportunity or such freedom for collective creative expression as we do today.
We Have A Dream
So I would like to invite you to share your own vision for our collective future. How would you like to start this conversation , to be open to the possibility that no one person can dream it all on their own, that it has to be a collaborative effort. Can we look for ways to bring our collective force to bear fruit and manifest into this world, for each individual to be empowered to take actions that are coordinated towards our joint vision.
Out On The Edge
This is what I am passionate about and this is the main reason why I got involved in Social Media in the first place. Its an exciting time to be alive to witness this moment in history and I feel we are much further out on the edge than any of us really imagine. Those of you who I have spoken to personally will understand where I am coming from when I say this.
Circle Of Trust
Another friend Simon U Ford has been asking us to start recognizing the groups that we belong to and to begin to deepen those relationships. To think about building our circles of trust with those who we most resonate with. Without the need for any rulebook, allowing these natural structures to coalesce and begin forming on their own. Freely giving our energy and attention to these people and these groups.
