Some thoughts from Agility (a group of people I collaborate with) on 2014 and what it might hold for media, video, online communities etc 
Some of our Agility collaborators have shared their thoughts on the year ahead and marked out some of the possible developments and trends for brands, design, media, music, fashion, the arts, online communities and video.

I'm getting social fatigue from the existing scene.

I want a social network that replaces the combination of Google Reader and blogging from  my college days - something that gives the same dopamine buzz as viral content, but for longer and weightier stuff. Or, even better, one which encourages creativity instead of clicking the share button.

Working with media organisations on digital strategy and implementation
Introduction

I am currently working with media organisations in Europe helping them with digital strategy and implementation. Previously I worked for Ireland’s largest media organisation, RTÉ, across its digital platforms for five years before being head-hunted for an executive role at WorldIrish.com, a startup focused on the Irish diaspora with an emphasis on UGC. In RTÉ, I was responsible for setting up the broadcaster’s first dedicated social media team and I project managed the digital output for several high-profile events across multiple platforms (web, mobile, social etc). In WorldIrish, I was part of an executive team that pitched for, and raised, investment and I was responsible for hiring and directing a multi-disciplinary team located in Ireland, the US and the UK. I graduated from Northwestern University in 2006 with a Masters in Journalism. As a journalist I have reported in Ireland, the US, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Romania.
