“There are two worlds and we don’t realize that others don’t share our point of view. We don’t realize that people learn to behave in ways that make sense, given their view of the world. We don’t realize how great the opportunity is for the media to enhance our worldview, and that we can—and must—do better.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Watch Ads Aired During Giants vs. Patriots Game (VIDEO)

“What's good about the ads is that you have an audience of millions to get your message.

What's bad about the ads - nearly everyone uses them in ways that have nothing to do with making any difference in our lives.

This one--of all of them--at least had a message. (Hint: ask yourself: do you feel lucky?) rebootthemedia.com/2012/02/05/the-most-powerful-super-bowl-spot/”

“Energy goes where attention flows... and this story begs the question: Are we frittering away our energy and attention on trivial matters?

Nothing wrong with enjoying entertainment. It’s all harmless enough, there’s nothing malicious about it. I’m not suggesting anyone give this up. I’m just saying that we have the truly miraculous ability to communicate on a global scale — and here’s what we’re talking about most. Does this reflect what is most important or useful to humanity?

RebootTheMedia focuses on the opportunity to use the media to make a difference. We’ve seen many examples of this in 2011, and there will be even more in 2012. Yet, we still have a long way to go. There is plenty of opportunity to find the sweet spot between communicating ideas that transform and inspire, and satisfying the community need for gossip and entertainment.

Here’s to the media evolution… to creating stories told in the media that make a difference AND that everyone will search for, tweet and post about!”

“The most impactful events are mostly horrific ones, which proves that TV (especially the news) easily stimulates the "reptilian brain" of fear and fight-or-flight survival.

Stimulating the nurturing, caring side of the brain among a majority of the population proves to be a much tougher job for TV.

What would it take to use the gift of TV transmission to have the most memorable, positive impact on people? Could we completely shift our experience of humanity?”

“I had the good fortune to hear Buckminster Fuller live with Werner Erhard in 1979 at Radio City Music Hall. It was a part of a 7-city tour, "Making The World Work for Everyone".

Thank you for bringing forth his ideas, which are so relevant and needed today. I've mentioned your article in my blog, RebootTheMedia. If we were to entertain Fuller's notions about our world in our discussions in the media, it would spark conversations that really do make a difference in the world.”

“1) yes, i was thinking of a perfect world.
2) yes, that's where subjective decision making rooted in emotion and bias comes in to play instead of "perfect world" objective directions (e.g. if the problem was "feed all the world's people and improve the quality of living" there might be different routes to get there, but there you'd be... )
3) nope, I've never bought a GPS - I was just listening to someone else's GPS talk and the thought I shared above came to mind.

Thank you for your comment!”

“The brilliance is in taking a mechanical invention (like GPS) and using it to further the soulful purpose of humanity.

What else can GPS technology specifically teach us? In "GPS Problem Solving" RebootTheMedia notes:

What the GPS does is re-calibrate, given what’s so right now, and it re-directs you so you can continue to get to your goal. No making you wrong. No ‘I told you so’. Not even a ‘we should vote for the other guy to drive next time’. Amazingly, GPS just re-calibrates and re-directs, given the factual information. (Note: It does not re-calibrate based on opinion, e.g. it doesn’t deal with whether you are confident enough to drive or if this isn’t a good time to go on vacation or it simply likes the other guy better than you.) To GPS, there’s simply the goal, a driver, and the best route to get there at any given time and under any given circumstances.

What if we applied GPS problem-solving to the challenges that are so important to our country, and our world? Consider the possibilities. Let’s re-calibrate our efforts and support the driver — whoever he or she is — to getting where we need to go.”

tonybillbob on Apr 17, 2012 at 00:15:51

“Maybe in a perfect world can you only go froward toward your goal, from wherever you are at any given time, and that this always self-correcting path be the fastest, best, most direct. Many times my GPS gives me incorrect directions.

And as to GPS theory being some sort of thinking breakthrough that's bound to always lead us to focus on the task at hand or the quest for the truth, that's a load of bull-puckey straight up. Try attaching that logic to Congress and it's goals, it doesn't work because there is more than one agenda.

Probably sounded pretty good when you heard it at a "work smarter not harder" seminar. Did you rush right out and by a GPS so you could try it out for yourself?”

“A big YES.

The media is the biggest way to reach the most people. Anytime you have humanity and communication you can have a transcendent, spiritual moment.

RebootTheMedia is all about celebrating media that makes a difference. We seek transformational moments - big and small - in mainstream media. Why mainstream media? Because that's were all the people are. That's the tipping point.

Transform the media and you transform the world.”
