Netflix, FCC & net neutrality – Graphic of the day

Netflix, the dominant source of internet traffic in North America, argues that the FCC needs to adopt rules that force ISPs to provide sufficient access to their network without charge. Last year, Netflix struck deals with some major ISPs to connect directly to their network for a fee to reach its customers. The FCC is expected to vote on net neutrality rules later this month. Today’s graphic looks at Netflix speeds by ISP, including when the interconnection deals were made. It also shows which applications occupy the most broadband.

Navigating uncertainty

Keith Hopper

The Knowledge Worker Innovations series launched the New Year with continued momentum and was surrounded by explosive growth in Boston’s Innovation District. Big data has found a home in Boston and our Data Innovation Lab is delighted to be a part of that ecosystem. Our first guest in 2015 was Keith Hopper, a Lecturer of Entrepreneurship at Olin College of Engineering. Keith advises companies on early stage agile product strategy and he is Mentor-in-Residence at Techstars, a global startup accelerator. Keith is also a Founding Trustee of the revolutionary micro-philanthropy, The Awesome Foundation, which forwards the interest of awesome in the universe through 106 chapters in 25 countries. Prior to this, Keith was the Director of Product Strategy and Development for National Public Radio.

Mona Vernon, VP Data Innovation Lab, lead a conversation with Keith around “Navigating Uncertainty” in launching new products and services. Keith presented six steps to navigate the uncertainty. The first step is to articulate a clear problem statement – know your purpose. The purpose is then agreed upon and the risks need to be identified. He noted that “risks hide inside bad assumptions.” Prioritizing and testing assumptions is a critical part of the process. Keith identified “mindset” – are you a builder or explorer, to help define next appropriate actions. Planning and allowing for course correction is the next step. He supports using a learning framework and knowing yourself. “When the team knows itself, anything is possible” as Keith pointed out with the example of the Olympic winning bob sled team from Jamaica. His concluding step was “knowing how to fail, which ensures you get back up.” Keith closed by saying that the group’s ability to talk effectively and become good storytellers helps to navigate uncertainty for the future.
