This week we celebrate power to the people and the power of immediacy in media. These new age media channels that both create a sense of community, and isolation to the world around us.

Media consumption in today’s world would not be the same without the innovations of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, podcasts, & Instagram. With the ability to share and connect across many different platforms and borders, we are hyperconnected. With the ability to share content across the globe within seconds.  Internet became an extension of our society and individuals could take charge of film and media in radical ways.

We saw the power of a video “going viral”. We explored cross-cultural humor as cliffhangers got massively “Rickrolled*” in the early years of Youtube. Today we know Youtube personalities like PewDiePie who has over 16 billion views, while we only have 7 billion people around the globe! It is therefore needless to say that a whole revolution of moneymaking machines came with the attached bloggers and vloggers. This resulted in a constant wrestle between business and individuals over the favor of the big audience. The question arises how we can take charge of these channels.

This Venture Café we will explore these different channels and talk about how we can use it in innovative ways. Active members of our community, namely Nick Kiran and Lorenzo van Galen are teaming up with us to get a greater overall program. Based on their own experience with the Launchtime Podcast and De Wereld Van Morgen Podcast they will share their knowledge and insights on this ‘viral’ topic. Together we will discuss the future, present and past ways media has and can change our society, let alone your startup.

*Read more about what it means to get “Rick Rolled”?
