Lauren DeLisa Coleman is part of the new technorati-to-watch and a rising, formidable personality for
the digi-speak era. Said to be the Anti-Oprah, in terms of recognizing that in the new "leaderful" era the
best approach is to provide maximum perspective and digi-socio collaboration rather than try and dominate
behavior as the gurus of old, Coleman is well-positioned as an information source and power player in
the socio-mobile space. She has taken the lead knowing that the best one can do now is support
people in finding their own voice and new opportunities amidst turbulent social change and translate such change as it converges with tech in the era
of self-competency As an author, speaker, personality and consultant who tracks global social shift as it converges
with popular culture and its impact on business and governance, she defines herself as a socio-economic digitalist and is a pioneer in this arena.
As a special aspect of her research and work, Coleman is the first to identify and define a neo-global behavioral phenomenon. Applying a re-definition of the term SmartPower™, Coleman has named the phenomenon as such to explain the rise of a new mind set where people are seeking to become more self-determinant, socially conscious and use tech extensions, such as Smartphones, to explore and express a new power dynamic around the world. She explores this occurrence via several platforms:
A. Her week daily "SmartPower™" podcast (see "LDC Radio" on this site) explores pop-socio shift and provides news in a new context.
B. She just release "Rise of the SmartPower Class: navigating the new digital, leaderful era". This is her first eBook and was included in its first week of release on Amazon's "Hot New Releases - Best: Media Studies." The work examines this new cultural SmartPower™ phenomenon and includes quotes from such notables as rap legend Chuck D and the HBO executive for "Real Time with Bill Maher."
C. An extension of the comment-sphere analysis in her book, Coleman has just launched unprecedented website with her new start-up team to curate and provide real-time analysis of the comment-sphere on the hottest topics of the day in celebrity, politics, race and technology. The BETA version is available at www.glassldc.com (see "GlassLdC" on this site) and provides a living microcosm of social change as it unfolds daily and a new view of comments.
