    Let's do lunch

    Other than in the very early days of School of Everything we've always worked in Bethnal Green in east London. That's mainly Geoff Mulgan's fault because he offered us some free office space in the Young Foundation building. It's a wonderful place, full of interesting projects and organisations and surrounded by a few cafes which we used to frequent on a regular basis.

    Three Generations

    This is a subject dear to my heart as I am living with actually four generations of our family in very close proximity just now. This range of age groups, each with its own belief systems, experiences and perceptions of the world brings with it a number of interesting challenges and life is never dull!

    Our world has changed so significantly over the last one hundred years that it is no surprise that there are such huge differences in expectations, understanding and feelings in each generation.

    How You Can Live To 100 (Graphic)

    Want to keep thinking up great ideas? Research has found that by controlling factors in your life, living to 100 is actually much more possible than previously thought. In total, the US has the most centenarians with current estimates as high as 72,000, leading website The Centenarian states. In fact, if the population of centenarians continues to increase at its current rate of expansion, there could be close to one million people of 100 years of age or more by 2050 residing in the US.

    Social Norms? Twitter Users Follow the 79/7 Rule in the U.K.

    The Pareto principle, more commonly known as the 80/20 rule, is the idea that roughly 80 percent of activity will be accounted for by 20 percent of the participants. Vilfredo Pareto’s initial observation at the start of the 20th century, that 80 percent of Italy’s land was owned by 20 percent of the population, has become a common rule of thumb in business, but does it hold up when tracking activity for the U.K.’s most popular social networks?

    Must Read Social Media Books

    Reading books has just got social. Social media that is. Having just done a search on social media books at Waterstones I found that they were 529 books with social media in the title. Examples include The social media bible and Social media goes corporate. If we take a moment and think about what the landscape was like a few years ago one could argue that most of the books would not have anything to do with social media.

    Indigenous Perspectives Conference

    One of Britain's leading adventurers, Benedict Allen, is to open the Indigenous Perspectives Conference on Monday 12th October. Allen is the author of 11 books, but is probably best known for his TV programmes of exploration and endurance. His first-hand experience of indigenous people in jungle, tundra and desert qualifies him to speak with authority and warmth at this one-day conference at the Pierian Centre.
