2001: A Social Technologies Odyssey

2:49:00 PM Posted by Oscar Berg No comments

I just uploaded this animated movie to Youtube. The movie was produced by some of my very talented colleagues at Kabel New Media in 2001, for a sales pitch that we later won (the pitch was for developing a mobile web portal for a large Swedish Telecom company).

A lot of our projects during that time were about developing and launching mobile and social web solutions. As you can see, the movie is all about easy-to-use social technologies and the vision of connecting people across the world. Then came the burst of the dotcom bubble...

When looking at this movie today, it seems as everything we envisioned at that time has more or less become true. It shows that what we were lacking those days 10 years ago was not realistic vision, but rather an understanding about what would be a realistic pace of change. Young and naive, you might say. But not without vision.
