TechCrunch – Facebook Asks Every User For A Verified Phone Number To Prevent Security Disaster
Did You Know? originally started out as a PowerPoint presentation for a faculty meeting in August 2006 at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado, United States. The presentation “went viral” on the Web in February 2007 and, as of June 2007, had been seen by at least 5 million online viewers. Today the old and new versions of the online presentation have been seen by at least 20 million people, not including the countless others who have seen it at conferences, workshops, training institutes, and other venues.
The web site http://shifthappens.wikispaces.com/ tells more about how this simple little presentation spread worldwide (which certainly was not the original intent) and provides complete credits for this and its predecessor versions. As you will see, there was lots of feedback, both positive and negative, about the presentation. When XPLANE offered to help with the redesign, they gratefully accepted its offer to make a “new and improved” version in order to try and help continue the conversation (and to ask more from viewers).
This version, updated to early 2012, was created by David S. Rose (@davidsrose) for use in the Finance, Entrepreneurship and Economics program at Singularity University (singularityu.org). All of the contributors to this presentation believe that it is only through conversation, and subsequent action, that we will achieve the best possible education for our children. You are encouraged to download and share this video, and help keep it current by contributing updated versions to the ShiftHappens Wiki.
