Proof social media can bring return on investment if done well... And that was 2013, wonder what the number if now. 

In an early sign of success that social media can be monetised, Commonwealth Bank of Australia revealed that it has made nearly $1 million in revenue by intercepting potential customers’ life events on Twitter. [...]

“These are people who express dissatisfaction with competitors and post something like “I’m not happy with my bank anymore” and we pick that up and capture the trend and go straight in and say “we’re here to help, could we offer you a better alternative to your current bank?”
Kaching! CBA reaps $1m from social media. Two of Australia's biggest banks have indicated how a dollar value can be attributed to their social media efforts, writes Vish Teckchandani. In an early sign of success that social media can be monetised, Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) revealed ...

Between the SuperShoes and the google glass, I have chosen. Such a cool project. 

"The shoes take you to your destination by tickling: left toe tickles - turn left, right toe tickles - turn right, no tickle - keep going. You input your destination once on the accompanying smartphone app. No more staring at the screen, rather immerse in your surroundings."

Can't wait. Imho one of the things Apple can do to take a strong lead on the smartphone market again is to work on the battery: charge it in 30 seconds, or have it last for a week like in the good old Nokia days (the only thing I miss about my Nokia is battery life).
Israeli prototype can fully charge a Samsung Galaxy smartphone in about 30 seconds using new organic batteries

Strange world we live in, where suicide kills more US soldiers than actual fighting.

This may have something to do with the fact that since World War II the US Army didn't fight a well equipped and trained enemy.

A short presentation on the trends currently impacting banking, and a vision for what a data-driven bank-client relationship would look like (slides 49-56).

What does a tiny fruit fly have in common with the world's most advanced fighter jets like the US Air Force's F-22 Raptor?

Wisdom from George Koukis, the storied founder of Temenos, one of these amazing entrepreneurs you can meet around the Geneva region with a bit of luck.

I was working at Qantas, the National Airline of Australia when in 1973 my then boss was in panic because a project that was vital to Qantas, could not be done on time.  With my limited language skills, I completed the project in a record time.
The first thing you must do is to free yourself of fear.

In July 1987, 3 squash friends persuaded me to invest in the Stock Market all that I had. 20 years of work in Australia and about 2 million dollars. On 19 October 1987 I was left penniless.
I pursued money as an objective. Probably the best lesson of my life.

In 1993 I found a Swiss company near to bankruptcy, the actual Temenos, I wanted to acquire it. Four advisors told me it could not be done. Also I asked a very good friend of mine, an expert, and he also said that I should not do it.
Do not listen to experts, the only expert is you, your heart, your soul. Do not abdicate the responsibility to decide what is important to you.

When my Investment Banker wanted to take me public they told me that I had to move the company to the Silicon Valley, then NYC, at minimum London. I chose Geneva. I was the last IPO in Europe because recession set in the following day.
You cannot win something if you are not prepared to lose it.

And finally I read an aphorism in a book that said that you can either build a successful Company or an ethical one!
The impossible doesn’t exist. I am motivated to challenge it and prove it is otherwise.

You know who's driving the world...

"women are influencers and key decision maker in a household or family unit. Research tells us that women often drive a decision more than a man"
I hope she'll forgive me but when you think about finance you don't necessarily think passion, do you? But talk to investment guru Barbara-Ann King and that's immediately what comes across: passion with perhaps the faintest trace of anger. King is more than a little annoyed that women are so ...

Interesting feature on Forbes.com, a small twitter icon at the end of a line, when you mouse-over it, a whole quote becomes blue and ready to be tweeted. Prepared tweets, which logically would increase sharing (would be interesting to see the data here).

Seen on http://www.forbes.com/sites/zackomalleygreenburg/2014/03/26/why-wu-tang-will-release-just-one-copy-of-its-secret-album/
Wu-Tang's aim is to use the album as a springboard for the reconsideration of music as art, hoping that the approach will help restore recorded music to a place alongside visual art--and change the music business in the process.

Story
Tagline
I am an entrepreneur and researcher passionate about understanding the social implications of digital technologies.
Introduction

Since the mid 90s, I have been observing the impact of new technologies on society and business.

Entrepreneur (coComment, Lift conference, Lift lab), lecturer (HEC University of Lausanne), writer (Wired UK, Techcrunch, Le Temps) and speaker, I now work as an innovation strategist with CEOs and boards, helping them answer the challenges raised by the growing importance of digital technologies.

A venture partner at Anthemis, I am an advisor to the Montreux Comedy Festival, Founders Institute Switzerland, Galixo and Lift Conference.

I was twice honored as one of the most influential person in Switzerland (L'Hebdo in 2006, Bilan in 2011), won a Swiss ICT award, and was named one of the top 20 Swiss young entrepreneurs in 2011.

Bragging rights
I hosted the celebration of the 20 years of the WWW with the original team (Tim Berners-Lee and his friends). I am the six times world champion of Indiana Jones pinball. I came up with the August 5, 2008 Urban Word of the Day on Urban Dictionary (with "shuffle shame"). I played air guitar on stage with the 3 times world champion. I have a video with more than a million views on Youtube (eating live shrimps in Korea). I came up with the "grandma dinners" concept, covered by Swiss media and CBC/Radio Canada.
