Did you know 4.0 – Media Convergence for ALL

Media Convergence due to social media platforms like facebook – twitter & even the smallest to the largest of self created, targetted and inspired communities sprouting up all over the internet – this video has some astonishing facts.

I am not associated with the New MediaCconference this video was created for but the contents we ALL should know about 🙂 – it mentions a singaporean Ang Chuang Yang who created a Guiness World Record

Here is the Description on YouTube for the video – compelling stuff

This is another official update to the original “Shift Happens” video. This completely new Fall 2009 version includes facts and stats focusing on the changing media landscape, including convergence and technology, and was developed in partnership with The Economist.

Revisited 2008: Singapore’s IT Show attracts 725,000 visitors and they SPENT – $53 MILLION – itsReal

Last years heading:  Singapore’s IT Show attracts 718,000 visitors and they SPENT – $48 MILLION – itSreal – WOW

This year per person the spend was appox $73.10 per person – no wonder there is no cover charge to go to the IT Show in Singapore and that there are 8087 technology related jobs on offer in Singapore right now.

This year I got to see my mate Melvin Koh on prime time TV – as well as hearing that the show had gone GREEN – can u imagine the paper needed to sustain 725,000 eager consumers, looking for computer, printers, phones and memory cards ?

Today’s mypaper picked up that in the 45 minutes they were stationed at city hall – no one was checked – when carrying their IT Show Singapore goodies home – so homeland Security for the first time came into the hugely successful IT SHOW in Singapore.

All that aside – well done to the organisers and see you next year !
