SPOS #455 - Into The Future With Gerd Leonhard

Welcome to episode #455 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. I have always been skeptical of individuals who proclaim themselves to be futurists. I often joke that I am a presentist. How far into the future can these people see? How far do they really look? Are they ever right? Recently, I was presenting at a private corporate event outside of San Diego, and Gerd Leonhard (the well-known futurist), was speaking after me. With a pending flight home, I could do little more than small talk with Gerd, but agreed to have a discussion about how he helps companies prepare for the inevitable. He is the co-author of The Future of Music, and the author of The End of Control, Music 2.0, Friction is Fiction, and The Future of Content. Gerd if the CEO of The Futures Agency. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #453 - The Art Of LEGO With Nathan Sawaya

Welcome to episode #453 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. I can't remember when I first heard of Nathan Sawaya, but I knew his work long before I knew the artist's name. That's what happens when you see a sculpture made of LEGO. That sculpture stopped me dead in my tracks. It was very evocative... almost disturbing. Yes, those same little bricks that get jammed into our feet at two in the morning when we're trying to get a glass of water from the kitchen. Was someone making a joke? Was this serious art? A great piece of art does this. It moves you. Emotionally. Physically. It gets you thinking. After you experience it, you can't stop thinking about it. Delving online to discover who had created this piece - and if there was any more where that one had come from - you discover Nathan Sawaya. Sawaya was a corporate attorney in New York City, until he decided to leave that life to become a full-time artist working with LEGO bricks as his medium. It's an amazing journey and a fascinating story. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #452 - Get Big Things Done With Erica Dhawan

Welcome to episode #452 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. When a friend like C.C. Chapman tells me that I have to meet someone, I am there in a heartbeat. Prior to the introduction, I had never heard of Erica Dhawan. Erica was in the final throes of writing her first book, Get Big Things Done (which she co-authored alongside Saj-Nicole Joni). The book is based on her research, interest and business around something she calls, "connectional intelligence." A new (and better) way to communicate and network. Erica's mission is to accelerate the connectedness of employees, teams, customers and clients. In this episode, we talk about the changing workforce. We look at how businesses are going to thrive and prosper by understanding connectional intelligence. We debate the challenges in building a culture rich with productive communication, where an open flow of ideas and profitable collaboration can happen. Enjoy the conversation.

SPOS #451 - New Clues With Doc Searls And David Weinberger

Welcome to episode #451 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. If ever there was a book written about what marketing "could" be, it would be The Cluetrain Manifesto. The book was published in 2000 and presented 95 theses organized around the Internet, culture, society and business (it also happens to be one of my my most loved books). Many point to this book as the genesis of social media. Many recite the infamous "markets are conversations" line from it. The truth is that many don't really understand the depth, value and insights that the book delivers. It's amazing to look at the content of this book - in 2015 - to see how much of it has come true... and how far we still have to go. It's something that two out of the four original authors have been thinking a lot about. Doc Searls and David Weinberger put together New Clues. It is 121 more theses authored for 2015. While, Rick Levine and Chris Locke opted out of taking another kick at the can, Searls and Weinberger provide much more fodder for all of us to think about. Technology has - without question - moved at an exponential pace, so it's interesting to see what these two think needs to happen next. Enjoy the conversation...
