Text Appearing Before Image:
an be done to improve big business imageon campus? What can be done to change the imagecreated by limited personal experience, the shapeof the news and the students important but indirectcontact with the commuter mentality of the corpo-rate world: the fairytale fantasy of The Man in theGray Flannel Suit and Cash McCall and the vapid,back-slapping of Death of a Salesman—to say noth-ing of the soapbox serials and the unflattering waste-land of so much of television drama? Frankly, I dontknow how business can best tell its story on thecampus, but 1 do think todays college generationwill turn to big business if it sees a challenge there.Todays graduate demands the unusual business, withsophisticated research laboratories, freedom to thinkon his own, the latest management techniques andan opportunity to be treated like an educated man.Yes, youth is demanding — but demanding challenge.If business can offer this, business can win the confi-dence and respect of the younger generation. ■

To meet the long distance communications needs of Americain the 70s/80s—and beyond—the Bell System has proposed a new plan for Space-Earth Communications Sometime in the seventies, your voicemay travel the 2,800 miles from LosAngeles to New York via a 46,000-mile trip to outer space. This is onepossibility that could result from thelatest Bell System proposal on how tounclog the earthbound voice, data,and TV communications highways oftomorrow. Based on ten years of Bell Labora-tories research into satellite communi-cations, the proposed system utilizesthe latest technology of space com-munications. Heres an outline of theproposal recently presented to theFederal Communications Commission: • Beginning in 1969, orbit two syn-chronous satellites similar to the kindcurrently being considered for domes-tic use by Comsat. Each of these sat-ellites would have a capacity for 9,600 voice circuits or as many as 12 TVchannels. This capacity would be inte-grated with the Bell Systems nation

One of the keynote speakers:

Alec Ross

Senior Advisor for Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Alec Ross serves as Senior Advisor for Innovation in the Office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In this role, Alec is tasked with maximizing the potential of technology in service of America’s diplomatic and development goals.

Before that appointment, Alec worked on the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Team and served as Convener for Obama for America’s Technology, Media & Telecommunications Policy Committee.

In 2000, Alec Ross and three colleagues co-founded One Economy, a global non-profit that uses innovative approaches to deliver the power of technology and information about education, jobs, health care and other vital issues to low-income people. During his eight years at One Economy, it grew from a team of four people working in a basement to the world’s largest digital divide organization, with programs on four continents.

Power to every citizen

To me “digital revolution” can be defined as the massive shift in power that has taken place from hierarchies to citizens and networks of citizens as a result of powerful digital technologies.

What this means in practical terms is that everyday citizens have power today that they did not have as recently as five years ago. Anybody with a smart phone now has the kind of global reach that was once reserved for governments and large media companies. This shifting power has disrupted commerce, communication and governance.

I see this “digital revolution” as being overwhelmingly positive. Some of the disruption it has caused (and will cause in the future) is negative, but this has been far outweighed by the ability of people to connect and engage with the world and with the marketplace in ways that were previously unimaginable. I think about my own experience as a school teacher in an impoverished community. When I was a teacher, the only educational resource my students had beyond my own knowledge were a set of tattered, 30-year old textbooks. Today, that same classroom is equipped with an internet connection that can deliver world-class educational resources directly to the students that most need them. While there is no replacement for a good teacher, our students should not have to suffer with out-of-date and substandard educational resources. With the digital revolution, that no longer needs to be the case.

Another Keynote speaker:
Emily Banks
Associate managing editor for Mashable
Emily Banks is responsible for organizing and overseeing Mashable‘s growing editorial operations, including assigning, editing and publishing stories, as well as sharing them to Mashable’s social accounts. She is also responsible for coordinating with partners on video and syndicated content. She joined Mashable‘s New York team in October 2010. Mashable is well known as the largest independent news source dedicated to covering digital culture, social media and technology.

Some of Emily’s recent engagements include "Social Media 101" for New York Women in Communications, "The New Face of Social Good: How to Make Your Own Social Media Magic!" and "Challenging Conventional Wisdom of Social Media".

Abstract: Social media and the newsroom: the Revolution of the Newsroom
Without question, social media has changed the pace of news; how and where it breaks and who breaks it. How does this change our trust in media organisations, journalists as individuals and news-makers? As we remove the layer of authority provided by news organisations, by placing the news directly in the hands of journalists on social media, how do — or should — our readers approach the news? This talk will discuss tools for verifying news through social media, cases of misinformation caused by the rapid nature of breaking news on social and the ethical questions involved in reporting in this new age.
