Cubicle to prime time TV! Nicely done, +Steven Hui
 
iFLYflat is on prime-time TV.
WOW! - super excited I made it on Channel 7 news.
From corporate cubicle to prime-time TV, iFLYflat is taking off (pardon the pun).
Tens of thousands of Australians are missing out on free overseas trips because they don't know how to properly accrue frequent flyer points. David Richardson reports.

Nothing is more precious than life... especially the life of your child. Which is why my report today about "abundance" and "health" is so powerful.

If you have any doubt that this combination of highly skilled, low cost freelance talent available instantly combined with rapid prototyping to create actual useful products is disruptive, try it yourself and consider the impact of this in future .

Key takeaways for me:

Facebook OWNS photo sharing. See slide 62 to understand why they bought WhatsApp. Instagram + Facebook + WhatsApp = dominance.

Screen minutes, slide 96, show the massive adoption of tech in developing countries. Not so sure that ‘developing’ is still the correct view to hold when you see that USA is 6th below Vietnam, UK is 15th below South Africa and Argentina, and Australia is below Kenya?

Sensors in devices are creating big data which are creating better user experiences as we learn by measuring  how consumers engage. Slides 60 and 67.

80% of China’s 500MM internet users consume via mobile! Slide 129
Live TV is dying fast as on-demand rises. (Slide 122) Combine this with Apps replacing TV channels (Slide 106) and it seems distribution is already disrupted. Fun times ahead trying to control that content.

Big Data is real and solving real problems. Slide 88.

And finally, one for Australia to pay attention to as a country of immigrants – “60% of tech’s top 25 companies were founded by first or second-generation Americans. In the top 10, make that 70%. Meanwhile, the number of foreign students sent home for lack  of a limited-availability H-1B visa has nearly quadrupled in the past decade “. Enough said!
