What Does it Take to be an Xplorer?

You know you need to hone your digital skills to grow your resume and your business. But what are the core digital competencies you should be developing? In June, the SEGD Academic Task Force issued the XGD Core Competencies, which outline the baseline skills essential for success in XGD. You can cover them all at the Xplorer Digital Camp coming up Aug. 6 in Seattle. But hurry—capacity is limited and seats are filling fast!

Are You an Xplorer?

What is fascinating about all disruption cycles is the solution that ultimately disrupts is not usually a completely new-to-the-world invention. Take the Ford Model T or the Wright Brothers Wright Flyer. Making gliders with humans flying on them was not new. The final piece of the puzzle though--how to make the flight stable--was! The personal computer was a similar story. The Apple 2 was not the first personal computer, but it was the first to combine a keyboard and screen with the processor, thus making it usable.
