Bold ideas are the bedrock of Scality’s conception; as Peter Diamandis expounds in his latest book “In today’s hyperlinked world, solving problems anywhere, solves problems everywhere” and the RING is constantly solving storage problems for our clients with each new version. So when looking for inspiration to create impact in Cloud tech we drew from a mine of wealth in this powerful book: Bold by Peter Diamandis and his co author Steven Kotler.
Dr. Peter Diamandis was recently named by Fortune Magazine as one of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.
Diamandis is a New York Times Bestselling author of two books: Abundance – The Future Is Better Than You Think and BOLD – How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World.
Steven Kotler is a New York Times bestselling author, award-winning journalist, and the founder and executive director of the Flow Research Collective.
While Kotler’s books include Stealing Fire, Bold, The Rise of Superman, Abundance, A Small Furry Prayer and Last Tango in Cyberspace. His work has been nominated for two Pulitzer Prizes, has been translated into more than forty languages, and has appeared in over a hundred publications, including the New York Times Magazine, Atlantic Monthly, Wired, Forbes, and Time.
From the coauthors of the #2 New York Times bestseller Abundance comes their much anticipated follow-up.
BOLD: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World—a radical, how-to guide to using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth by creating a world of abundance.
“BOLD is a visionary roadmap for people who believe they can change the world—and offers invaluable advice about bringing together the partners and technologies to help them do it.” President Bill Clinton
BOLD unfolds in three parts.
1. ADVANCING TECH TRENDS
Part One explains why the old rules of building a company are gone and the time to enable startups to move from idea to building a billion dollar company has been reduced due to the development of exponential technologies.
“Abundance showed us where our world can be in 20 years. BOLD is a roadmap for entrepreneurs to help us get there.” Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google
With insights and interviews from Silicon Valley elites, companies and individual are harnessing the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and synthetic biology to tackle the kinds of enormous challenges once only possible by big corporate industries.
“Essential reading for anyone looking for a better tomorrow”. Elon Musk
2. THINKING AT SCALE
Part Two teaches the fundamentals of top innovators to think at scale, with tips from Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos. The second section of the book also expands Kotler’s human performance enhancement techniques garnered from his personal Flow Genome Project.
3. HYPER CONNECTIVITY
In Part Three, BOLD reveals the incredible power and essential best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before.
“In BOLD, Diamandis and Kotler have written another dazzler. A riveting look inside the world of exponential entrepreneurship—action-packed and action-oriented. I’ve purchased a copy for my entire team at Cisco.” Author: Padmasree Warrior, CTO & Chief Strategy Office, CISCO
