Wolfgang Grulke So, it's finally happening...

I think that this is a major new trend in open business communications - away from "Corporate-speak gobbledegook press releases" - and it will transform business. It's what the Cluetrain Manifesto envisaged in 2000 and what is now being forced on business with the massive impact of the Internet and mobile technologies.

Doug Vining London bombings spurred citizen journalism

7 July 2005 marked a turning point for the media.
That was the day the phenomenon of "user-generated content" or "citizens' journalism" came into its own in Britain, as members of the public took over the roles of photographers and news correspondents.
That day, the BBC received 22,000 e-mails and text messages about the London tube and bus bombings.
There were 300 photos - 50 within an hour of the first bomb going off - and several video sequences.

Doug Vining CNN scooped by Twitter

As this MindBullet foresaw, we won't need networks like CNN to break the news for us. Rather we will be feeding breaking stories to the TV networks via social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Of course, when we published this scenario in 2005, Twitter didn't exist yet!

Anton Musgrave The ultimate tool for democracy?

As we approach a new year, we remember the unexpected changes that 2011 ushered in...many brought about by the ubiquitous mobile phone. This is the worlds most often used camera, telephone (at times) tweet machine, FB logger, blogging device, GPS etc. It may also be voted as the most important tool in ensuring openness, transparency, collaboration, sharing and the ability to vote, influence change and bring down governments! Our 2005 MindBullet saw this as a possible future scenario!
