Apple’s official announcement for its March 7 media event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco was as simple as it was cryptic, “We have something you really have to see. And touch.” And, as usual, rumors that the launch would be for the “iPad 3” have swirled for months in advance, although Apple has not confirmed the name or specifications of the new product. But Apple watchers are convinced that the new tablet will be smarter, faster and better than anything we’ve ever seen, sporting everything from 4G wireless connectivity to an 8 megapixel camera and a faster quad-core processor.

Michelle Nunn is CEO of Points of Light Institute, a nonprofit nonpartisan volunteer organization with more than 20 years of history. She is also the co-founder of theHandsOn Network, the volunteer-focused arm of the Points of Light Institute.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is largely fueled by a relatively small set of young people who view the protests as a fight for their future. The vast majority, however, are getting up and going to work every day — or wishing they could. These individuals are part of a less dramatic but, perhaps, equally powerful movement of Millennials shaping the future of business. As consumers, employees and entrepreneurs, Millennials are shifting the norms of corporate America’s conduct, ethical imperatives and purpose. In his book, “The Way We’ll Be,” pollster John Zogby documents how these “First Globals” are more conscientious consumers than their predecessors, demanding greater honesty and accountability from businesses.

When Google went public in 2004, the company was valued at $23 billion, while Netscape was valued at $2.9 billion when it went public back in 1995. Viewed from this perspective, the Facebook IPO deal feels like the defining moment of an era, perhaps the last great IPO of the current Internet boom.
All of this raises an interesting question: Which Internet company, if any, could possibly become “the next Facebook”?
