7 lads at instagram get $1BN

Launched in 2007 MarkZuck awarded them the prise for innovation and market development, $1Bn Acquisition, well done lads!

Instagram shows that and others get the picture!

more cash follows more innovation follows more cash. Oh how that could work in other sectors but what for social innovation and their drivers. We need to figure that out together and make that work to. I suppose in the end it does!

Augmented reality and LBS progress

Just a glimpse of new steps in this area that ive hinted at over the years:

Google and microsoft obviously aware of Facebook, twitter, foursquare and Apple innovation leadership. Thought leadership vs Product leadership vs Commercial leadership???

Money, markets and MDG's especially MDG3 from Des Tutu!

Witten by Arch Bishop Des Tutu:
".........One important step would be for investors to start to demand a wider range of socially responsible investment products and challenge fund managers to seek better returns. They can demand transparency and be opposed to highly leveraged products that do not actually produce anything useful for the common good........."
I tend to follow him via

He is always so interesting to read:
“Indian communities and their leaders are starting to realise how much potential lies in the empowerment of their sisters, mothers, wives and daughters.” MDG3 is the one thing that can have the biggest impact on all people!

 Also read:
and and Kofi Anan's quote "there is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women. No other policy is as likely to raise economic productivity, or reduce infant and maternal mortality. No other policy is as sure to improve nutrition and promote health - including the prevention of HIV/AIDS. No other policy is as powerful in increasing the chances of education for the next generation. And I would also venture that no policy is more important in preventing conflict, or in achieving reconciliation after a conflict has ended" ....and that statement alone shows the full connection of all the MDG's 1 to 8 and why each is so important.
