Hello there world! If you read my last blog post, you’ll get a glimpse into how excited I am about Periscope. I am grateful for the new perspective this mobile app. has granted me, and would like to give thanks to its makers.
I know, give thanks for a free app. that anyone can download is a bit ridiculous, but I don’t care. I still want to do it. I wonder out of the millions of people utilizing this app, if anyone else would like to say thank you?
Well, here is your opportunity to “join in the conversation”, by commenting below. For a while now, I’ve wanted to dedicate at least a couple of my blog posts a month to gratitude. I will go ahead and start with todays post.
We are living in a day and age where people are becoming more expectant, and by default less grateful. Much of humanity is no longer impressed by technology or innovation, because they are busy impressing themselves.
Maybe I’m old fashioned in my way of thinking, but I am in awe of progress. Technology is granting society a level of accessibility that amazes me daily. My children will grown up in an almost limitless generation.
Technology is opening up a universal door to education and socialization. It is creating a greater sense of equality through opportunity. I am watching in awe as social media outlets bring people together into virtual collectives.
With the click of a button we are now able to reach out to others all over the world. People of all walks of life can find their tribe and unite with like minded individuals. Information and people are more accessible than ever.
My passion thrives on people and connectivity, and Periscope has given me the gift of accessibility. I am so happy to have found an outlet that allows me and others to simply be who we are and find others who share our vigor.
Today I would like to say thank you to Kayvon Beykpour and Joe Bernstein, for the ability to see the world through Periscope. Not only did they dream up an amazing concept but they started a community.
These two young men have created an incredible outlet and an inviting place for sharing. I believe in this apps potential and love the sentiment behind it, “Explore the world in real time through someone else’s eyes.”
In closing, I would like to share a quote I read here: http://www.businessinsider.com/what-is-periscope-and-why-twitter-bought-it-2015-3#ixzz3eUozf8YW in regard to Periscope’s founders.
“When I first met Kayvon and Joe I was struck by their desire to spread truth and empathy by enabling anyone to experience the world through someone else’s eyes,” Belsky wrote to Business Insider in an email.
Scott Belsky is an Adobe executive, and one of the angel investors who raised seed money for Periscope. I think what Scott saw in Joe and Kayvon is exactly what I love and appreciate about Periscope.
Thank you Joe Bernstein and Kayvon Beykpour for sharing your creation!
Wishing you and the rest of this world smiles and sunshine,
