Thousands of views – and nothing to say?

March 30, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride // 2 Comments »

Thousands of views.  Virtually no likes or comments.

That’s what happened to one of my LinkedIn videos this week.

And it makes sense.  When I looked at who viewed it’s a lot of big companies in the automotive and automation space.

Everyone’s watching. Lots of people are afraid to take a stand.

But I feel this is one of those moments.  What we do today will shape generations!

It’s time for us to shape our future with technology.

What’s your thoughts on this important issue?

What are you taking a stand on these days?

You can check my video here.

I do want your thoughts – either in the comments or send me a message directly.

    Hi Shawn, It seems we are all afraid to take a stand these days. The reason is because they’re so much outrage, so much volatility. With all of this we find that it’s easier to hide, to hunker down, to become invisible as we watch what happens around us. We do that in so many areas of our lives including hiding on our cellphones when we’re in an elevator with 8 other people. We do that walking down the street, sitting in a restaurant, in a crowd of people where we never make connection. Were all afraid of the person next to us what they will say what they will do. So this issue, with a self driving cars? We know they’re coming we know that it’s going to happen. But opening ourselves to what’s going to happen because we need the communication. We to open ourselves to better communication come a more communication. We need to be part of the great group that we used to be. We need to open ourselves to talking to communicating to listening to being heard to understanding others to be compassionate towards their opinion even if we disagree.

    • It’s definitely a different time. Folks are very independent. And few like to be challenged. We all have to live with each other — so it would be great if we could get along and compromise more.

      I think few want to face the fact that we have to compromise to be successful and get along. And that means tough discussions and not always getting your way.
