This week saw many examples of how individual businesses and entire industries  have changed as a result of technology. We don’t have to look any further then the delivery of this class to underscore the dramatic change that has occurred in education. A recent article in Fast Company entitled Best Practices From The Most Active Slack Users (Links to an external site.) chronicles the use of Slack by proclaimed zealot businesses. Many of you may be scratching your head and asking, “what is Slack?” That’s exactly the point. This is a two year old start-up company that is now valued at 2 billion dollars. Who knows if they will still be around in 5 years (think MySpace) but this is an example of a company which realized a need and then used technology to fill that need. In week one Thomas Friedman talked about the new jobs of the middle class. The first job was collaborator and the second was leverager. The ability to collaborate and the ability to leverage technology are the tenets behind Slack. This article does a great job of connecting the dots when it comes to many of the conversations we have been having thus far in the term. For this week’s discussion, I’d like you to share examples of other companies that exemplify the use of technology. Is  technology used to disrupt their business sector (Uber), solve a problem (Slack)  or rethink an old idea (Craig’s list) ?  Are the terms crowd sourcing, sharing economy or collaborative economy appropriate descriptors? Several businesses are referenced in this week’s lesson notes, can you add to that list? Tie your thinking back to this week’s readings.
