Our world is connected by billions of nodes of information thatcreate and process data, connect people, grow ideas and changeculture. These analog and digital nodes are the invisible linksthat form our society. They can send 200 million simultaneoustransmissions down a single strand of fiber-optic cable everysecond, and can process over 30 billion Google searches permonth. The ties that bond our human race together are growing atexponential rates, and, as a result, our world is getting moreconnected every day.The prevalence of technology, social networks and new nodesof influence grant us access to a knowledge base never beforeavailable on such a large scale. This access to information givesus a new sense of empowerment. It provides us with the abilityto connect and communicate at extremely accelerated levels, andgrants us the opportunity to be hyper-influencers in our owncircles — sharing, debating, linking, distilling and propagatinginformation. We have become masters of reaching the criticalmass. With a touch of a button we can connect with people, shareour visions, spark trends and begin movements with anyone andeveryone on this planet.To succeed in this world means havingharnessed the power of connectivity.The role of CHOICE is to dissect, understand, articulate andnavigate these connections. We recognize that the greatestideas and trends are found in connections between the analogand digital and between the familiar and unknown. We understandthat finding various hidden links between individuals, as wellas groups of individuals, can be the key to answering the manyquestions posed about business and consumerism. As we explorethis growing matrix, we will discover and uncover these bondseach step of the way.CHOICE is connectivity and creativity.CHOICE is our world, unraveled.
