Learning from the next generation

» ,

John Patrick has a very interesting blog today called “Youth at the Gate” (CIO Insight).

When I am growing up as a kid (and I am not that old btw), we play five stones and “goli” (marbles). We play police & thief catching in the field or varity of sports. Kids today grow up with Nintendo, Playstation and Internet. How their generation going to redefine the world in 10 or 20 years is beyond our imagation.

This is why it is important we listen to them. Sure, Asia Pacific Next Generation charter is to groom the future AP Internet leaders but more importantly, APNG provides us a chance to learn and listen from them.

IBM isn’t the only one listens to them. Microsoft did and come up with ThreeDegrees.
