TEDxNewSt - Thomas Power - The Future of Social Networks

Thomas Power is reaching the conclusion that it takes 10 years to develop an open, random and supportive digital mindset and it could be longer. Much longer.

He's been online since 1994. 16 years. He has built a network, a club, a gang, a fan club, a following. This has taken him 16 years of relentless activity. Fortunately he loves it. Not everyone does.

Thomas has learned how to blog, post, tweet, share youtube videos, respond to debates, criticisms, write books, make speeches and deal with endless technological challenges of Nokias, BlackBerrys, iPhones, servers, switches and open source software. He moved from Unix, to Windows, to Mac and back again to Windows. He has studied hard. He has read 1000 books. He has met 12,000 people in the last 12 years. He has been to 50 countries. He has joined 600 social networks and tested them to destruction. As he says he loves his work. This has not been hard for him.

He has a digital mindet.

He thinks digital.

Every problem he's faced with he thinks how can he solves that problem electronically online. How can he solves that issue digitally.
