Posts Tagged ‘Traditional Forms Of Communication’
The only constant is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.
— Isaac Asimov
The computer and internet have changed the traditional forms of communication are as fully as those communications changed when the telephone was created, as they did when the written word was formed.
It has been a fun couple of weeks being a tiny participant as a couple of my online friends have been pushing the next level of creating their real lives using the virtual world of the internet.
My first friend, Meetu decided that she wants to work for Zappos. She chose Zappos because she loves their corporate culture and knows that is the kind of place for which she wants to work. Because the job she was vying for is in social media, Meetu began her campaign on Facebook, in our private networking group. As a group, we supported her as she started her Facebook page (Zappos Hire Me), blog (ZapposHireMe.com) and Twitter (@zapposhireme). In the first few days she got the attention of Zappo’s staff. I will now refer you to her Facebook page and blog so you can see for yourself how she continues toward her goal of working for Zappo’s. Also check out the exciting news story today on Las Vegas Fox 5.
My other friend, Lauren, has decided that she wants to find love on network television, specifically, The Bachelorette. Lauren also created a private group where the detail of her quest were share, brainstormed and the launched. Lauren created her blog, The Next Bachelorette, her Facebook page , and her Twitter (@nextbach). After only a couple of days, Lauren has a bit of attention and it is building.
A quote from the movie, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” seems to fit here:
Sloane: What are we going to do?
Ferris : The question isn’t “what are we going to do,” the question is “what aren’t we going to do?”
And so it is when we move into the next communication venue, it’s not what we are going to do to change the way things are done, it’s all the ways we are going to change the way it is done.
To Meetu and Lauren- continue your adventure and know there are many right behind you.
