Something you should know about me is that even though I dropped out of college, through some miracle of life (and quite a bit of begging) I managed to enroll on a Master´s degree on Digital Marketing & E-commerce (technically it´s called a Superior Program, like a post-graduate for people who never went to college but still have experience to make up for it).
One of the things I´ve learned that strike me as impressive is how marketing is shifting, on one hand we´ve got AI doing most of the work for people on targeting their audiences, but to complement that there´s a pretty obvious trend on brands being more transparent and user friendly.
That´s the point I want to get to, It amazes and fills me with joy how our world is finally dropping the act, honesty is becoming ever more important in success, and we are realizing just how much of what surrounds us is built on a lie.
In a time of fake news and corrupt corporations doing whatever they please, people are starting to realize the power they hold at the tips of their fingers, it´s just a matter of time and effort for ideas like Blockchain and crowdsourcing become commonplace, then, in due time, all of the establishments we despise will evolve and become more transparent in their intentions, giving the users the place they deserve as the people behind the wheel.
Those are just my two cents on the matter, I would like to solidify this into something with more substance, but for now I´d like to know your opinions, any position is welcome, it all adds to the eventual solution.
