SXSW 2017

Recently I found myself running out of books to read so I thought, this year I would approach sharing the learnings from #SXSW in a different way, by creating a reading list inspired by #SXSW 2017 keynote speakers.

Here it is:

  • Absolute TOP read for anyone working in a start up, at Twitter or Facebook, or fascinated by the Silicon Valley:  Chaos Monkey by Antonio Garcia Martinez
  • Amazon did tell me that I would enjoy Disrupted by Dan Lyons based on my Kindle purchase an also probably my average page turning speed, nb of hrs/ day, time to completion of Chaos Monkey , but after attending Dan Lyons  keynote “Ending the bro culture and bias in Start up land”, I can confirm that Amazon is probably right!

All the below are plugs from authors and speakers at #SXSW. I haven’t read them myself yet but won’t run out of books to read for a while.

At the end of Jan 2017, I just completed a world tour, with a stop in Dubai.
Traveling to Dubai, is like traveling to the future: everything is new and modern.
So what about the media industry? Here is my 11th Mediawatch for the United Arab Emirates.

Industries of the future

A must watch for anyone who is interested in the future of technologies and its impact on geopolitics, or anyone who has the most important job in the world in the world: being a parent.

If you want to go deeper, I highly recommend the book written by Alec Ross- former Sen. Advisor Innovation for SecState Hillary Clinton: Industries of the future

Japan fascinates me. It’s culture and technologies are so unique and strong.
No where else can you experience tradition and innovation harmoniously mixing together the way they do  in Japan.

Here is an overview of its media landscape and the numbers behind the success of mobile marketing.
