This method is the only one I know of that offers a truly Private HOA while still allowing for interactive comments from a large group of members/viewers. We'll be taking a look at the details of WHY & HOW to set things up this way in our training session. The private video from our event will be added to the Hangout Mastery Membership website for future viewing by members. *_This is a Private HOA for Hangout Mastery members in a Public Event._* Before the start time, I'll add in the HOA video for you to test the play arrow. If you can press that play arrow and you see the countdown timer you are using the proper account. If it tells you that the Video is Private then you will need to sign out of YouTube or G+ with the 'other account' and sign in again using the same account you use in our Private Membership Community. More details here http://goo.gl/ujenXX *Please realize that the Public (anyone) can see the comments here.* I set it up this way so we can bring your questions/comments on screen via the Comment Tracker tool. *If you are not a Member yet but you're interested in joining us*... check out Hangout Mastery membership info at bit.ly/HangoutMastery === === #HangoutMastery   #PrivateMembership   #HOAtips   #HangoutsOnAirTips   #EventTips  Private HOA in a Public Event - members only training2015-06-24 18:00:0034

Ray Hiltz27,358*Is it better to be a Generalist or a Specialist?* The debate about which is better, to be a _generalist_ or a _specialist_ has been going on for a long time. But it hasn't been until the rise of the internet and content marketing that it seems to be on everyone's lips. (Ok, maybe not your Aunt Bertha's) I had planned on having this topic on our lunch menu since I read our special guest,@101350861337322805122' post last summer: _*Google Has Killed the Generalist and No One Cares*_ http://goo.gl/OH6lch When I first saw the title, I thought Ryan was bemoaning the death of the “Generalist” and sad that no one cared. Wrong! In the intro to his Google+ share of his post he wrote: _"We all want to rank for everyone thing we could ever possibly sell someone. That's the dream, right?_ _Unfortunately it's not a reality and over and over again I see businesses with good intentions diluting their digital marketing results while trying to be everything to everyone._ _Stop. Now. Google hates you for it.”_ ...Well, that seems pretty clear. I've been a fan of Ryan for some time having followed him on social, as well as being a regular listener to his Content Warfare podcast. I just purchased his new book - *Content Warfare*. http://goo.gl/1xqhlM Join Ryan and the #RayBunch  and leave your questions and comments about whether you think being _Generalists_ are an endangered species. Be sure to stick around for the last 5 minutes of the show when we'll be serving our *Lunch Bunch Take-Out* - tips and links to resources relating to the day's topic. *Watching on mobile?

Social Media Today144,943*Does Social Business Make Sense?* _Not just for people but for the organizations as well?_ *Social Business is the focus of every business owner and CEO.* As we transition to a world of people, connections and relationships where advertising and traditional marketing do not work like they used to, the trend is to reposition a business to work harder for its employees, better with its customers and for its community. When the traditional model of a business gives us some very strong, clearly defined guidelines, driven by the irrefutable logic of the balance sheet, *does it make much sense to really talk about social business?* Is it a distraction? *And if not, can there be a workable path that can transition a legacy business to a modern, social one?* Discussing some of the key questions will be TEDx speaker and author @105103058358743760661. *A former Microsoft executive and a thought leader in the field of technology, people and organizations,* Gideon will be sharing some of his insights with us. Hosting the discussion will be @115620878851836664537  with @102000982871890720967  and at the controller's helm, making sure that everything runs smoothly will be @100470926227322431614 with @115000108263064481690. *Don't forget to join the conversation!* We want your questions, highlights, and feedback prior to, during, and after the event so make sure to tweet @socialmedia2day using the hashtag #SMTPowerTalk  or leave us comments on the Google+ or YouTube event pages!

I surf the web even more. Over the last four years I've spent time in fifteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. I also spend more hours, each day, online than most people would consider to be healthy. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days. It has become my anchor._ _In my posts, interviews and podcasts I add pieces to the puzzle. I explain how each one fits in a bigger picture. How that bigger picture then makes sense. Sensemaking changes everything._ _Before I got here, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing, speaking and blogging._ @115137076899523837053 - One of my favorite teenagers & aspiring DIY host. I rely on Kiragan to help me keep up with the cool kids!   Kiragan is an eighth grader and an aspiring You Tuber.  You can find her watching a season a day of Netflix when she is not playing basketball four days a week.  In the future she hopes to own her own business because she loves people and being her own boss. Her Instagram is the bomb.com and you should follow her!  http://instagram.com/kiragan_07 https://twitter.com/kiragan_07 YouTube: Kiragan Mercer @103158283130494425954: Rachel is pursuing concurrent Master's degrees in urban planning and information science at the University of Michigan, with the aspiration to design human-computer interactions at the urban scale. Specifically, Rachel is interested in designing how people will interact with emerging technologies -- such as drones, autonomous cars, and pervasive computing -- within the city, with an eye towards making sure these technologies promote positive human interactions and greater community engagement. She has previously worked at the Brookings Institution and the World Resources Institute, and holds BAs in English and environmental humanities from Stony Brook University.  @106628164966864339997 - @112784356967153325101 Zack Jones is a college dropout entrepreneur that is shooting to change the way we define housing. When he decided to quit his academic career and his day job to pursue a new path as a business owner, he had no idea where his tiny idea was going to take him. Fast forward three years to now and Zack has brought his idea off the napkin and into the most demanding phase of a new business, the startup. Aside from being obsessed with tiny houses, Zack is passionate about creating learning pathways that are uniquely tailored to each individual persons needs and excited to chat about how starting tiny is a promising first step to something so much larger!

Daria Musk3,681,836*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time. I'll be sure to circle you and invite you when you're web-camera-ready! ✪ Come with song requests, stories and even a "dream to amplify". The theme of this hangout is #amplifyyourdreams  cause that's what you guys did for me. You turnt it up to 11! *SRSLY, MESSAGE ME* Send me a private message or chat or comment to me here if you'd like to arrange a special invite or if you're new and want to join the family and need some tips for getting in. I think I'm going to make invite circles for each half hour, so let me know when you want to join. Everyone's invited. It's really the greatest possible gift, just to let me sing for you and get to know you again and again and again.  *SPREAD THE LOVE* Share this invite too. Let's grow the family. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine and deserves some showcased virtual face-to-face time. *XO, Daria* PS. *CONNECTED BY* This concert celebration is being supported by our new friends at CO-OP Connected Credit Unions. CO-OP is all about connection, just like our epic House Of Blues Concert, they've partnered up with us to make sure we stay together and keep banking on this amazing feeling we get when we connect through ethernet lines HANGOUTIVERSARY CONCERT2014-07-17 00:00:00386

Mia Voss35,497This week on @109324423871490315778 Power Chat, we are going to completely mix it up and talk with Animal Sanctuaries & Rescue Organizations around the country.   @103097488992777849956 (right here in Colorado) will join us to talk about their amazing facility and the efforts they are making to care for exotic animals that have been rescued from deplorable situations or were abandoned:  _TWAS has been rescuing exotic wildlife and endangered species since 1980, and is currently home to more than 290 Lions, Tigers, Bears, Jaguars, Leopards, Mountain Lions, Lynx, Bobcats, Servals, Wolves, and other wildlife. These animals were abandoned, abused, illegally kept, or came from other terrible situations. The vast majority of the animals were so-called “pets” - and were confiscated by law enforcement officials - usually within the first six months of their lives. The sanctuary also provides a permanent refuge to surplus animals from zoos and other wildlife facilities, where they face euthanasia due to over-breeding_ Founder #KathyNobles  of #GoingHomeAnimalRescue : _Going Home partners with small municipal shelters and rescue groups, mainly in rural areas that do not have the resources or adoption pools metropolitan areas do, and transport dogs and some cats to receiving rescues in areas of the country where there is a need for adoptable companion animals. Presently we are partners with about 30 shelters and rescues throughout Oklahoma and the northwestern part of Arkansas. In addition, Going Home arranges 4 to 5 major transports a month to receiving rescues in Colorado, Illinois, and Minnesota_ http://bit.ly/GHART @112441632905897027738 from @112753360947353564928 will also join the panel!

martin shervington1,139,492*The Power of Visual Storytelling.* Do you know Ekaterina Walter? Well, seeing as we've been having a very visual time lately, you will love to hear her talk about visual storytelling. You know how people love pictures, right? Well, personal branding through to large corporate campaigns can be transformed with the visually compelling components.  Intrigued? Well, let me take you on a journey as I ask expert and buddy of mine @116774709566587280072 to explain how we can all tell our story even better. See you all then! *About her book...* Attention is the new commodity. Visual Storytelling is the new currency. Human brain processes visuals 60,000x faster than text. Web posts with visuals drive up to 180% more engagement than those without. Viewers spend 100% more time on web pages with videos. Filled with full-color images and thought-provoking examples from leading companies, The Power of Visual Storytelling explains how to grow your business and strengthen your brand by leveraging photos, videos, infographics, presentations, and other rich media. The book delivers a powerful road map for getting started, while inspiring new levels of creativity within organizations of all types and sizes. “This book is not only a complete overview of [visual storytelling] but, most importantly, the key to doing it right, a total Right Hook!” —Gary Vaynerchuk, New York Times bestselling author of Crush It! and Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook “A valuable guide to understanding how to develop powerful marketing programs using the art of visual storytelling.” —Guy Kawasaki, author of APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur and former chief evangelist of Apple “The Power of Visual Storytelling is the new marketing bible!” —Nancy Bhagat, Vice President, Global Marketing Strategy and Campaigns, Intel “If a picture is worth a thousand words, The Power of Visual Storytelling is worth a million.” —Scott Monty, Global Digital & Multimedia Communications for Ford Motor Company More on her here: http://www.ekaterinawalter.com/The Power of Visual Storytelling.2014-05-13 17:00:0087

NASA Climate Change2,587NASA invites you — and everyone else on the planet — to take part in a worldwide celebration of Earth Day this year with the agency's #GlobalSelfie event. The year 2014 is a big one for NASA Earth science. Five NASA missions designed to gather critical data about our home planet are launching to space this year. NASA is marking this big year for Earth science with a campaign called #EarthRightNow , and as part of this campaign the agency is asking for your help this Earth Day, April 22. While NASA satellites constantly look at Earth from space, on Earth Day we're asking you to step outside and take a picture of yourself wherever you are on Earth. Then post it to social media using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie . WHAT'S A #GLOBALSELFIE ? NASA astronauts brought home the first ever images of the whole planet from space. Now NASA satellites capture new images of Earth every second. For Earth Day we are trying to create an image of Earth from the ground up while also fostering a collection of portraits of the people of Earth. Once those pictures stream around the world on Earth Day, the individual pictures tagged #GlobalSelfie will be used to create a mosaic image of Earth – a new "Blue Marble" built bit by bit with your photos. Need an idea of what kind of picture to take? Get outside and show us mountains, parks, the sky, rivers, lakes – wherever you are, there's your picture. Tell us where you are in a sign, words written in the sand, spelled out with rocks -– or by using the printable signs we've created that are available at the bottom of this page. The Earth mosaic image itself and a video using the images will be put together and released in May.

martin shervington1,139,492*Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?* We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future. Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too! *What is 'Youtility' all about?* Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success. You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?” If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility." Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0076

Lori Friedrich55,083*Have you been cyber bullied?* _Every day, millions of people are harassed on line. Every day, people report the behavior. Every day a number of those people get no action from these networks and simply close their accounts and disappear._ *This week’s episode of Friday Live! is about cyber bullying.* Watch our show to hear from people who have experienced this online, hear stories of other's experiences, and even have a chance to join in on the conversation! If you have been a victim of cyber bullying on a social networking site, I want to hear from you! Seriously, I want to hear your story. *Have your voice be heard! Send me your story!* I am looking for panel members for the show. If you aren't camera shy and are willing to talk about your experiences, *please message me!*  *I really want to be clear about what we are talking about here. It isn't about your average troll, nor people not agreeing and the butt-hurt that ensues. It's about when the lines blur and people move into personal attacks that affect families, careers and personal safety.* Cyber bullying is defined in legal glossaries as: • actions that use information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm another or others. • use of communication technologies for the intention of harming another person • use of internet service and mobile technologies such as web pages and discussion groups as well as instant messaging or SMS text messaging with the intention of harming another person. Examples of what constitutes cyber bullying include communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior intended to harm another. Cyber bullying has been defined by The National Crime Prevention Council: “when the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person. A cyber bully may be a person whom the target knows or an online stranger. A cyber bully may be anonymous and may solicit involvement of other people online who do not even know the target.

ARTISTS IN THE PLUS1,972,613+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed. (Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf ) +Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists. Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist. First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work. The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener. Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement. At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute. Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percussive, two-handed fretboard attack, that you hear today and which has caused guitar luminaries such "Concerts In The Plus!"

martin shervington1,139,492What is it all about? The leadORS indicator gives you insight into your own communication style and the journey you need to lead to conduct effective "online conversations" personally, and within your organisation. Why is this important in business today? Attracting and engaging with customers, leading and retaining staff and staying ahead of the competition is of paramount importance for today’s business leaders. The leadORS indicator provides a solution to these challenges by understanding your communication style and helping you to transform business thinking through social engagement and digital citizenship. Sound good?  What do you before the hangout? Well, it take about a minute to complete the questionnaire here: http://www.leadors.co I've done it. I am a 'Scout' The indicator will… • Identify your preferred communication style online • Take you on a journey to become Open, Random, Supportive (ORS), the most effective way to behave on the internet • Identify simple steps to build your profile and communicate effectively online • Show you how you can interact with communities online • Review your team styles and identify typical brand advocates • Build your business brand online and stand out ahead of the competition Once we are rolling I will give you some more information on it all as well. Here is the link for the questionnaire again: http://www.leadors.co ORS - a Friend As someone who is Open, Random and Supportive (ORS), you are inclined to be free-flowing, accepting and supportive of those around you. CRS – a Manager Someone who is Closed, Random and Supportive, (CRS) tends to be reluctant to promote themselves online but that does not necessarily mean that they are closed to the Internet.  OSC – a Mentor Someone who is Open, Selective and Controlling (OSC), tends to exhibit an open mind and are careful with what they choose to hear and share. They like to gain control of people and situations. CRC – an Engineer Someone who is Closed, Random and Controlling (CRC) tends to be reluctant to reveal themselves online but is accepting of new data insights. They may seek to control others and situations around them, using the information and knowledge you generate from the Internet. Often keen to game systems. ORC – a Scout Someone who is Open, Random and Controlling (ORC) tend to be free-flowing online and accepting of most things. They tend to seek control of others and situations, using the online data they receive. CSC – a Chief Someone who is Closed, Selective and Controlling (CSC) tends to be closed about themselves, choosy or skeptical about the data they absorb. These people are direct opposites of the behavior of the social web, which can lead them to control people and situations. They are often skeptical about the role or value, the internet can play in their own lives.

Link-less = read less

Today's UI change that removed the hotlink for entering Google+ from my home page, found me coming to the site only a few times today. It's a change and an adjustment, both to my thinking and my learned memory. I need to retrain my brain.

In this case, I hope that old adage about old dogs and new tricks doesn't hold true.

Anyway, have a picture of a rose. I had to go to mobile in order to add a picture from my library, but let's leave that bit of aggravation for another post, shall we?

Team is more than an acronym

Credit. Everyone wants it. From an atta boy to a raise, we all want to be tagged by, and receive the benefit of, personal successes. Rightfully so, but at what expense? 

Last night's win by the Golden State Warriors of the NBA title is a prime example of selflessness and understanding that sacrifice can and will pay off if you put ego aside. Andre Igoudala, the Warriors' small forward, started 758 consecutive games during his career. That is, until this season, where he acted in a reserve role, until game 4 of the NBA Finals. 

Did he sulk around, sullenly walking the floor, lackadaisically going for rebounds off the boards? Not in the least. He jumped right in and helped his team win their first title in 40 years, earning series MVP in the process.

It’s #NationalSomethingDay !
Does that mean you must participate?

There isn't a day that goes by that's not designated as a national day of something. Lipstick day, friendship day, hot dog day, you get the idea. When is it overkill? How do you choose which to participate in, and which to forgo? 

A good rule of thumb is asking 'is this relevant to the core business?' If the answer is no, then a secondary, 'will it help to show humor/humanize the brand?' If that answer to that is yes, then by all means, participate - wisely.

If the answer to both is no, step away from the keyboard. We've all seen the examples of a brand hashtag jumping where they have no business to do so.

Political campaigns on social steroids
How the knock on the door is personal now 

Based on the data obtained when people hand over their email addresses, campaigns know things like a person's interests, likelihood of voting or donating, and even what device someone uses to read emails.

The widespread use of social media like Facebook and Twitter provides a new type of data, called engagement data, which is giving campaigns and businesses more information than before.

Conversations by a campaign are more personal and directed than in 2014.

When volunteers are knocking on doors, the national, state-level and local branches of the campaign are now able to automatically share data. For example, if you send a message about a campaign on Twitter, you could even expect a phone call from a local representative within minutes.

RIP Senator Stackhouse

George Coe 1929 - 2015

From The Stepford Wives to Saturday Nigh Live to one of the voices on Archer, there probably isn't anyone who hasn't seen George Coe perform on the small or large screen.

Personally, I loved his portrayal of Senator Stackhouse on The West Wing, best. The Stackhouse Filibuster is one of my favorite episodes, for reasons. (He is the grandfather to an autistic child and uses the democratic process to have his issues heard, no matter the obstacles.)  Here's a clip from a different, but equally as good, episode.

What do you think? Would the family/partner/husband/wife/significant other like this?

Sometimes, bold art works with words can be a bit too much, but damn, this is Star Wars after all. For any Jedi Knight or Dark Lord of the Sith out there, there is no such thing as excess when it comes to our universe! :-)

Think all those bad deeds done by the Nixon administration, and Nixon in specific, were history never to be repeated? What if I told you that the tactics they employed were precursors for superPACs and the NSA global surveillance network? 

A new book by Tim Weiner One Man Against the World: The Tragedy of Richard Nixon looks to be an interesting read for history buff and privacy advocates alike.

it's wounded inside and weeps all alone.
The ages of time won't heal the pain,
anger and rage lingers and remains.

Loose social connections equal personal relationships?

Interesting read on why Amazon is removing some reviews based on bad data mining. Being connected socially, and possibly commenting on the same posts, does not a personal relationship make.

Today is about tying up loose ends, finishing projects, and setting an away message. After that, if you need me, leave a message at the tone. Shenanigans with friends and relaxation are the only items on the agenda.

Do you Patreon?
It takes a village to raise an author.
 
Susan is a talented writer. You can see this the minute you read one of her blog posts. 

She has spent years as a human rights activist, advocate, and inmate counselor. Countless hours spent helping the incarcerated scale the hurdles life has thrown at them. Now, she's combining her love of writing with her passion for helping people. 

It's our turn.
Would you consider becoming a patron of her stories? It's time for us to help her, the way she has helped thousands of others.

 

Well, here it is. The first chapter with more to come over the next weeks and months.

This is the story that I promised about Chantelle and my work with her and other women in jail, many of whom were battered, forced into human trafficking, and all convicted felons.

And all worth knowing and remembering.

I hope you'll participate and follow along and support my work in this field by becoming a Patron. I'd love to have you along for the ride.___Do you Patreon?

I am seriously thinking about getting one, especially if they keep adding features and make tweaks on current integrations.

Happy UK National Kissing Day!

Kissing

Kissing is a fine art, the first brush of lips, shy & enticing, promises of passion yet to come, hidden right beyond reach.
Slow seduction of sensation, tongues like conductors of electric current, curling toes, tingles of feather touches on the spine.
Two mouths in unison, reacting, anticipating, bringing erogenous zones to life.___Happy UK National Kissing Day!

Team is more than an acronym

Credit. Everyone wants it. From an atta boy to a raise, we all want to be tagged by, and receive the benefit of, personal successes. Rightfully so, but at what expense? 

Last night's win by the Golden State Warriors of the NBA title is a prime example of selflessness and understanding that sacrifice can and will pay off if you put ego aside. Andre Igoudala, the Warriors' small forward, started 758 consecutive games during his career. That is, until this season, where he acted in a reserve role, until game 4 of the NBA Finals. 

Did he sulk around, sullenly walking the floor, lackadaisically going for rebounds off the boards? Not in the least. He jumped right in and helped his team win their first title in 40 years, earning series MVP in the process.

We can all learn a lesson of for the greater good, leave your ego on the shelf. Whether in sports, in the office, or volunteering with community projects, it isn't always about receiving the immediate gratification, but instead, being part of the result.

That is where the real satisfaction lies.   ___

What's holding you back from being more social?

Well, if you live in the UK, it might be a belief that a good social profile doesn't help improve your reputation at work. It might be that you believe social is filled with too much spam.

Fun is fun, but shouldn't social have more than just one benefit? Isn't there room on the internet for everyone to have a better digital footprint? 

#socialmedia   #digitalfootprint   #ScredibleSurvey  

Survey reveals a stark contrast between U.K. with U.S professionals

British professionals fall behind U.S in recognizing social media's potential to improve their reputation at work, 57% to 75%.

Additional interesting stats on UK social media usage: 

• Only 3% think social media currently provides useful, educational content
• Only 5% believe that social media is most useful researching 
• 3% think its most useful for finding a job
• 11% of respondents think employees can damage a company’s reputation through using social media

Quoting Scredible CEO +Colin Lucas-Mudd:
The UK stands out as a world leader in the creative arts, as well as the knowledge and digital economies. However, the negative perceptions of social media demonstrated by this survey will ultimately put this position at risk.

The potential of social media in furthering careers and enabling education is limitless. Don't let fear of the unknown hold you back.

Tell me how you really feel!

Logging in to Facebook today, I was presented with a survey. 

I usually close those things, as they don't need to hear my rant on privacy controls, ownership of information, etc. Not sure why, but today I stopped and filled out the survey. 

I am sure I am not the only one spouting off, and doubtful they will listen, but it sure did feel good to give them a piece of my mind (not that I can spare any of it!)

It turns out that caffeine has properties similar to ED drugs like Viagra. So now a trip through the Starbucks drive-thru can liven up your day and your night!

Link-less = read less

Today's UI change that removed the hotlink for entering Google+ from my home page, found me coming to the site only a few times today. It's a change and an adjustment, both to my thinking and my learned memory. I need to retrain my brain.

In this case, I hope that old adage about old dogs and new tricks doesn't hold true.

Anyway, have a picture of a rose. I had to go to mobile in order to add a picture from my library, but let's leave that bit of aggravation for another post, shall we?

Thanks for the fish Auto-Awesomes, +Google+ Photos! 

Google auto-awesome'd my auto-backup shot from yesterday. I didn't always like what Google chose to make magic, or understand why some pictures and not others. Not being able to make my own stories was frustrating, as well. 

None of that matters now that it's been announced at #IO15  that Google+ Photos is going back to a stand-alone product like Picasa had been. All the things we 'testers' have been playing with, lamenting about not having, and growing fond of, we can now do. 

Waiting patiently for access to open and my gagillion pictures to be moved over. See you there!
