Social media and Cable TV continue to create disruptions

July 16, 2016 news
Yesterday’s paper and breaking news while waiting for lunch to arrive.

 

Back in the day newspapers broke most of the big news stories.

Now, we hear news literally seconds after it happens.

Social media and easy access to cable TV make this Presidential election unlike any previous election, in my opinion.

And i’m grateful that America is a Country where every adult may cast a vote.

PS. Just as technology is creating (positive) disruptions in the way medicine is practiced, technology is also disrupting the way Presidential campaigns have been conducted.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

 

Rosa Parks Was Not, Was She?

Rosa Parks was not out to win a popularity contest.  Was she?

She also was not the first to refuse to give up her bus seat for a white man.  But thank goodness she did on December 1, 1955.  She was 42.

  • Where did her courage come from?
  • Why did she demonstrate it?
  • Did she have a plan?
  • What was she prepared to give up?
  • What did she think she’d gain?
  • Was she scared?

Rosa Parks is one of my heros, inspiring  me to use courage for the right reasons.  So today I commit to asking  the same questions.

And, by the way, it’s not a popularity contest.  Courage rarely makes you popular until years later.
