Buy my new book during this three day surge July 11, 12, 13 while special Kindle and Nook pricing is available - only $9.99. I need your support to spike sales... but most importantly the book is very valuable and important reading, especially if you have college age children or employ recent college grads. See comments from Sir Martin Sorrell, Ken Burns and others below.
Hooked Up: A New Generation's Surprising Take on Sex, Politics and Saving the World tells you why today's college students may prove to be the next Great Generation and possibly the greatest generation of the 21st century. The Hooked Up Generation -- hooked on the Internet, hooked together by the Internet, and hooking up in relationships managed and defined by the Internet -- will make you hopeful about the future. The Hooked Up Generation was born into two decades of disruption, technological acceleration, economic collapse, social upheaval, political polarization and a war on terror, but is destined to lead the world into a transcendental period of tolerance and peace, social balance and economic growth. My book explains how this generation will redefine and reinvent marketing, entertainment, media, politics, religion, education and much more. Watch the video here.
~ Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO, WPP Group comments:
These Internet Pioneers, born between 1991 and 1995, are not like us. They absorbed the Internet like a native language while the rest of us struggled to learn it. Any time now, these pioneers will be commanding the agenda — and we'd better understand them. Hooked Up is the best guide to the future that I've yet come across.
~ Geraldine Laybourne, former Nickelodeon president comments:
Who cares about 17-21 year olds? Jack Myers does, and you should too if you want a front row seat on where the future of business and civilization is going.
~ Ken Burns, Filmmaker comments:
Once again, Jack Myers has his fingers on the pulse on the very latest, the impulses of the kids who will one day run the whole show, and he has the statistics to back up his cogent insights. This is by turns an absorbing, disturbing and ultimately indispensable account of a hugely misunderstood demographic group that will shape our future. Myers clearly has done his homework and the result is this superb study
~ Lorraine Branham, Dean, S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University, comments:
At the Newhouse School, we are living with the Hooked Up Generation and experiencing the extraordinary transformation that Jack Myers has brilliantly captured. This is a must read for educators, parents and all those who care about the next generation of leaders.
~ Mary Brabeck, Dean of the Steinhardt School, New York University comments:
The Hooked Up Generation is rewriting feminism, sexuality, politics, education, language, relationships, and media. This accessible and fascinating book brings new insights into how our cyber-society is shaping a captivating generation. The message is clear: the Hooked Up Generation offers hope for the future of our planet.
~ Monique L. Nelson, CEO of UniWorld Group, comments:
Jack's book is incredibly eye opening. It's an important read for all generations as we embark on a journey into unchartered territory and extraordinary experiences, full of breaking cultural norms and establishing a new normal.
We enjoyed The Great Christmas Light Fight on ABC last night. The show has four families competing each week for 50K. A guy named Michael Maloney is the judge. Never seen him before, but he's REALLY into Christmas. Michael goes around the country judging Christmas lights. Not a bad gig at all. He gets driven around by Santa in a red ‘65 Impala. First stop was Whitestone, NY, where Kevin Lynch and his family -- Tina, Tara, Tori and Timmy -- help to decorate. Kevin is a retired firefighter and 9-11 first responder. He has some crazy Christmas spirit and obviously LIVES for this time of the year.Read More
A couple of weeks ago I took part in an event organised by the US-based ad technology business Pubmatic. My role was to moderate a session on what the hosts called “The Progressive Advertiser.” The notion was simple – to debate what we could learn from forward-thinking advertisers when it came to data management and analytics, and to online buying of space. Were they for example starting to bypass the agency groups?Read More
