ISOOSI Research Engine3,474Roles and Stories in Effective Marketing with Dr. Mani Saint-Victor ( +Mani Scienide ) and +Chris Lang In our last show we discussed how words shape brands, both to those within, and without the company.  Building from that understanding of words, tone, voice, this week we go to the Customer's story and how we find and play our role in that story.Its fine to define ourselves to ourselves, in a fixed context of simply describing who we are, what our mission is, and similar things... But how does that matter to the potential customer who is wrapped up in their own problems right now?  How do we present ourselves in relation to a specific issue and mindset without losing any of that true definition of ourselves.In this episode we'll revise the importance of 'story', but from the perspective of the customer's story rather than our own.  We'll discuss how we fit ourselves into a vital and needed role in that story, and how to play that role effectively, powerfully, believable, and above all, truthfully.LinksG+ Hangout Event: http://isoo.si/Ab23DWatch on YouTube: http://isoo.si/t3B2SMain Comment stream: http://isoo.si/Ab23DRelated recommended reading: http://isoo.si/q5FWnJoin our wonderful guests +Mani Scienide and +Chris Lang, the   #isoosichat   regulars +Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski and +ISOOSI Research EngineRoles and Stories in Effective Marketing2014-07-01 21:00:0074

Through our interactions on his brilliant +David Amerland's Sunday Read, David and I have developed clear connections between communication concepts I regularly use in Communication Studies and the new Semantic Web that businesses are learning to function in.The show break downIn a half hour David and I will...I will briefly explain a communication concept. For our first show we are starting really basic. I will explain the two-step flow of communication: Its history, the basic model and components within that model, and how we generally study it within communication.David will then take the concept of the two-step flow of communication and apply it to his expertise: Business today. David will explain how the two-step flow of communication functions within the semantic web and why its important for businesses to consider.Finally, we will address any questions that you all raise for us, so bring your thinking caps!A big thank you to +todd l lebeauc for the banner!The Paradigm Shift - The Business of Communicating in a Semantic Web2014-06-19 18:00:0089

Meloney Hall3,285Teacher Says, “ Okay, class --  you better take notes for this lesson.”Fifteen students take notes vigorously as they try to keep up with writing cursive on their lined notebook paper.Eight Students do not take any notes at all.  They might ask for someone’s notes later.One Student draws doodles as a form of note-taking.  She gets laughed at and told to “grow-up” and take notes the right way.  I’m kind of embarrassed I listened to those peers; I need to gain those skills again!  So much easier to retain the information when you can draw pictures with your written notes (printed, not cursive). How about the Digital Way of taking notes today?  That’s what +Sacha Chua  will be showing us during the HOA broadcast with me.  I will be interviewing Sacha Chua on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:00pm ET / 3:00pm PT about how she uses SketchNotes for taking notes in a digital format.  Free-flow handwriting and techy all at the same time!  She’s a woman in science and technology, so she really loves gadgets!  She uses SketchNotes, and it’s really very fascinating!  Watching her do them LIVE is really the best!  I know Sacha as a fellow HelpOuts Provider, and I have seen her do this for many HOA’s.  This is why I wanted to interview her --  you’ll say WOW like I did when I first learned about her and what she does.   This is a link to give you the basic idea of what the system is and why it is so handy for students, business people, and anyone else who needs to retain information.  And if you’re into saving paper, then this is a true match for you!  I like to think of SketchNotes as a digital white board.  http://www.core77.com/blog/sketchnotes/sketchnotes_101_the_basics_of_visual_note-taking_19678.aspSelect YES or MAYBE to get a reminder on your calendar.  It will also help mark the spot if you can’t watch live, but will want to watch the replay.  You’re in for a techy-treat!  Hope you’ll be watching! Visual Note-Taking with Sacha Chua2014-03-12 23:00:0034

Jess + Scott + You314We are just people, and just mere mortals at that. So, how can “we” [in this case meaning you and I] change the world? Peek at Google. Ya, you heard right. Google! They research and develop (R&D) innovations online and off, in the medical field, in commerce, in transportation, robotics, learning, life’s longevity and more. Much more. They [in this case meaning Googlers or employees] feel the risk is worth the reward and the falling down means learning up. For them, learning is what helps fuel opportunity which in turn leads to growth and sustainability.So how different are We-from-They or Us-from-Them? On this Jess and Scott agree: It’s not the scale that counts so much as how you feel about it and then act on how you feel. Here’s the kicker. In descending order: technology, the internet, social media and Google/G+ can now easily and effortless transfer into our hands the ability to explore our curiosity along with all the innovation and opportunity inherent in the technology. Now, how cool is that?So, do you see that going forward it’s YOU? We decide next steps and decide Is the risk worth the reward, and are we willing to fall and learn to grow?This week’s JSY! show serves up case studies drawn from a courageous group demanding change to make our point: Even though our R&D budgets are a smidge smaller than say, Google’s, it’s the culture we set in motion for ourselves and our family, work and country that can make an impact. Might even save the world. In the end, it is the you and I that chooses to jump (or not), expand (or not) and grow (or not). For small businesses and entrepreneurs this means providing new and different value for our customers.Join +Jessica Dewell +Scott Scowcroft  and +Terry Leigh Britton    as we explore innovation to create opportunity which can lead to real change. Mere mortals? We think not.YOU (the Y in JSY) take action that matters. Come explore this topic with us live or when you can (Yes, we are an evening show - so responding Yes or Maybe will set a reminder so you can catch the replay.)Hashtag: #JSY  Like the topic?

Jim Shankle1,556It's always a pleasure hearing +David Amerland discuss "The GSS/G+ Connection" because it's a subject area with many facets.For mobile viewers click on this YouTube Link - MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland The time for the Event is translated to your local time zone. As a reference, it starts at 7:30 PM ET.Google Semantic Search and its direct connection to, and support by, Google+ (what I am starting to call "The GSS/G+ Connection") is remarkably deep and important. Yet David explains it with such simplicity, ease, and freshness that it's very understandable and enjoyable no matter your level of experience. Unquestionably, there is a wealth of material in this subject matter which means David will never be over-exposed or fail to peel back yet another layer of this very large onion every time he appears in an HOA.Thursday night he is joining my MBA Marketing Strategies class at John Brown University (Rogers Center in Northwest Arkansas) via Google Hangouts On Air. David will explain The GSS/G+ Connection from an MBA's and marketer's perspective. He will also introduce some unique "life applications" that should be pursued as an extension of the emerging power of GSS and Google+. Our session will start at 6:30 PM CST for those interested in seeing Marketing Strategies examined from David's unique perspective.Two facts backing my conclusion that David has struck a deep vein...1) He had 22,000 Followers when I started communicating with him 5-6 weeks ago. Today his Followers number over 150,000, and2) His game-changing book Google Semantic Search - 230 pages (including an extensive Bibliography for those who want to explore the subject even further) that mines (as David calls it) a "semantically dense" subject.Proof that GSS/G+ is a critically important subject for MBA students (everyone really) was on display last week. Friday for an enjoyable and fast-paced hour, David, +Mark Traphagen  +Ronnie Bincer   (aka "The Hangout Helper") and +martin shervington  discussed how Google+ is changing behavior on the internet - to the better - https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c0n7nndld5gebbjat1of0dhb124 Even after a full hour, there were many unaddressed questions - reflecting that the session could have continued for the rest of the day. Based on the enjoyable chemistry of these four professionals, most their large audience probably would not have left them had it continued.Come join us Thursday night to continue the discussion.#mktgmba  MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland Explores "The GSS/G+ Connection" at John Brown University2013-11-08 01:30:0064

(my daily nightmare)Did he have enough protein today? Did he eat fruits? He had a cup of juice, does that count as one serving? What about dessert - can he have some? Should it be home made? Sugar or not..? And why do I keep craving sweets after a meal?Myth and RealityDr.+Marta Katalenas is the author of The Step Up Diet: From Scratch...The Quality, Quantity and Timing Solution to Childhood Obesity. In the book, Dr. Katalenas breaks down myths that we use as a basis to our purchasing decisions, like -Sugar-free or calorie-free drinks are a good option to reduce or maintain weight in children.A serving of fruit juice is equivalent to a serving of fruit.Some canned pasta dishes contain a whole serving of vegetables and are a good alternative for the busy family.As a children’s drink, chocolate milk is equivalent to regular milk.And the one I'm most guilty of - Toddlers should take a vitamin supplement every day.IF YOU'RE A PARENT CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FAMILY'S MEALS, YOU SHOULD JOIN OUR HANGOUTBring your questions to Dr. Katalenas and get a step by step advice on how to get started on healthy meals that you can fit in your busy schedule.Grab Dr. Katalenas book here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0095M3RUY/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0095M3RUY&linkCode=as2&tag=myubifone-20About Dr. Katalenas:After growing up in Spain, Dr. Katalenas moved to the United States in 1984 to learn English and to become a pediatrician. A Board Certified Pediatrician, Dr. Katalenas graduated from the University of Oviedo Medical School, located in Northern Spain, in 1982.

Superior Man
Is Synthesis Man...and Woman
#leadinginthefuture   #valueorchestration  

Why is +David Amerland one the the leading value creators in the sphere of this new business landscape? 
Because David embodies the qualities business leaders need to be the difference makers, the leaders in this wildly chaotic landscape. He embodies the skills and abilities of synthesis. 

With these skills, the landscape isn't chaotic at all! It is a pallet of colours and tools, and people that can be continuously orchestrated and painted into new pictures of opportunity and value creation. 

For the business and social leaders with these skills, the chaos is the opportunity. While the old guard weep for order and stasis, Synthesis Man and Woman use their superior skills to orchestrate the new orders of value that others simply cannot see.

The Superior Man

When I was fifteen I discovered the writings of Confucius. The sexily titled “Doctrine of the Mean” (http://goo.gl/q1ch) offered to a teen mind struggling to find meaning in the world a series of quotes offered as postulates that in their Koan-like nature hinted at the impossibility of perfection and the need to constantly strive for it. 

It appealed. There was something about the suggestion that we are inherently fallible and will fall that appeared to the young, arrogant, angry me, to be a challenge. I have never been without a copy of it in some form in my life and though the meaning of each postulate has changes as I filter it through my ever accumulating store of knowledge and the inevitable building up of personal failures, it has never stopped being of help when, late at night; when the world sleeps, its words acquire a special, private meaning. 

Favorite amongst sayings that it is hard to pull favorites from is this one: The Master said "Men all say, 'We are wise'; but being driven forward and taken in a net, a trap, or a pitfall, they know not how to escape. Men all say, 'We are wise'; but happening to choose the course of the Mean, they are not able to keep it for a round month."

Like most things in Confucianism it can mean almost anything you want it to mean at a personal level, within reason. It is at the boundaries that things actually begin to become apparent. Living in a world of knowledge we are preoccupied with wisdom. There is a real fear that while we can learn everything about everything that there is to know we will fail to understand it. Our mental wealth, seemingly limitless, will be revealed for the fool’s gold it actually is. 

To safeguard against this we put in place rules, guidelines, regulations, statements, labels, ideologies, groups … and we defend them. It’s our ”We are wise.” moment. And it proves to be our downfall for in externalizing what should be internalized we lose something in the translation. 

+Zeke Cao  brought to my attention an instance where liberal beliefs (a label in itself if there ever was any) http://goo.gl/w95EUw are used in an incident (http://goo.gl/3jRu5w) to brand as a ‘heretic’ of sorts an outsider who wrote a satirical piece about left-handedness in a right-handed world (http://goo.gl/dlmUlJ). The post Zeke shared has several links which are really worth pursuing. The reason it resonates is not in the seeming injustice of what has happened nor in the subconsciously felt fact that political correctness, which addresses language and behavior towards others so that we can “all get along” without judgment and oppression, may actually be becoming a judgmental, oppressive movement in itself. 

No, it resonates because we all sense that somehow the world we see is deeply flawed, we are deeply flawed and every fix we try works only so far before it blows up in our face. It can get depressing. It is dispiriting. It makes us want to stop trying. For some it may already be a signal that it’s time we went back to the “good ‘ol days” where “a spade was a bloody shovel”. 

In truth our ‘enhanced’ vision of the world works both ways. We see the world not improving much as the very word “terrorist” is used as a blanket term to permit a multitude of sins to take place (http://goo.gl/NQ8wun) without question. We struggle to fashion a meaningful response when those we elect to protect us ask for wider powers (http://goo.gl/GyXeDq) in order to do their job. On the one hand we know there are risks. We have seen, very recently, horrible things take place. On the other we feel that each incident feeds into something that is globally bigger as ‘authority’ becomes more Authoritarian and as security seems to be paid for with the loss of personal freedoms. 

We also see the world become more human: http://goo.gl/qMtlRU People reaching out to people. Acting in very human ways that would have been inconceivable in the 20th century. 

We find that even in the worst of cases we can sometimes act with a grace of spirit that is driven by reason as much as by emotion, applying forgiveness because it is the right thing to do: http://goo.gl/uwFLhn. 

And as our gaze deepens and the throngs flinging themselves against our modern barricades become crystallized into people with faces and hopes and dreams and we listen to their stories: http://goo.gl/BLIQ4G we realize that ultimately they are the same us. They want the same things we want. Exactly. 

Labels, ideologies, theories, parties, sects, belief systems, ultimately are techniques we employ, signposts we use to tell ourselves we are on the right path. We have joined the mainstream. We are safe. It’s maybe an instinctive response that ultimately leads us into becoming the very thing we are trying to avoid and there is no real cure for it.  

The moment we believe we have attained ‘wisdom’ we are, indeed, at our least wise. The solution is, funnily enough, offered within The Doctrine of the Mean (http://goo.gl/fqbVFY) a work written for a people living in a time where uncertainty was the norm, when there was no concept of law to independently safeguard anything and when allegiances and personal choices were the only advisable path to safety, it highlights the struggle entailed in constant self-improvement. 

It is a struggle. It is hard. It may be the only way forward. And now perhaps we can take it in the understanding that we are not truly alone. Weak, fallible, uncertain, we are still a global collective marked by the same desires and responding to fear in similar ways. As +Russell Brand  (incredibly enough) shows in a brilliant riposte to a Big Brother (http://goo.gl/4zUxv) moment, ‘all’ it takes is empathy: http://goo.gl/55ioem. Just a little of it. Enough to help overcome our sense of fear and that may indeed help change everything. 

So, Sunday. Coffee. Donuts. Cookies, Croissants. Cake. (You know the drill). All the things needed to help us read long and think deep. Change inside ourselves will soon begin to be reflected outside. I hope you have an awesome Sunday, wherever you are.

#davidamerlandsundayread  ___Superior Man
Is Synthesis Man...and Woman
#leadinginthefuture   #valueorchestration  

Why is +David Amerland one the the leading value creators in the sphere of this new business landscape? 
Because David embodies the qualities business leaders need to be the difference makers, the leaders in this wildly chaotic landscape. He embodies the skills and abilities of synthesis. 

With these skills, the landscape isn't chaotic at all! It is a pallet of colours and tools, and people that can be continuously orchestrated and painted into new pictures of opportunity and value creation. 

For the business and social leaders with these skills, the chaos is the opportunity. While the old guard weep for order and stasis, Synthesis Man and Woman use their superior skills to orchestrate the new orders of value that others simply cannot see. 

Humans have always been explorers. But not all are brave enough, have the courage to adapt and harness the new opportunities across the valley, across the next mountain range, across the ocean. 

For those with the skills and courage, the rewards will be of social and business value, the likes of which the world has never before seen.

Strawman

I'll try not go off in a rant, but when you put up a strawman version of "networking" and then say that that type of networking is a waste of time, sure you're right.
What would be a better way of saying this is 99% of people don't have a f***ing clue how to network, and are no more than ass kissing, ladder climbing, how-can-I-leach-off-your-fame-and-reputation, d**k sucking suck ups. 
No, the key to networking is to learn what networks are, how you empower a network, add value, create value, learn from, invest in, contribute to, share knowledge with,  and value you them for what real power forces they can be. 

Wrote by somebody whose entitlement and privilege already has his doors open to all the power brokers he'll need.

Why a Dad Is Fighting to Keep Unvaccinated Kids Out of School

We Americans take our notions of personal freedom very seriously. And the only thing we are more protective of than our individual rights are our rights around how we raise our children. You could gather together a broad spectrum of parents, with deeply opposing social and political viewpoints and child rearing styles, and you’d easily be able to get them to join hands in outrage over a phrase like “nanny state.” Then again – just vaccinate your kids, people.___Freedom

Oxymoron
Accounting and Business Intelligence
#Glia   #thefutureoforganization  

Aaah, beancounters. Retarding business innovation and business intelligence since the very first bean was counted and put into an accounting ledger. It is not that 'accounting' is bad, it is what gets accounted for and why is where the problems in its severe limitations gets exposed. 
This guy, I could get to like:
So a system based on the above principles and models will be, by definition, not just ignorant of but actually antagonistic to meaningful management information. And when the accounting system cannot deliver adequate operational information, as Robert Kaplan explains in his book, "Relevance Lost: The Rise and Fall of Management Accounting," "Where an ineffective accounting system prevails, the best outcome occurs when managers understand the irrelevance of the system and by-pass it by developing personalized information systems." In other words, the approaches and systems required to produce relevant management information significantly disrupt the accounting system, literally causing the disintegration of enterprise information. Amazing really, that the pursuit of relevant business information will "break" the systems organizations have implemented in hopes of delivering that information.

By letting beancounters run your organization, you are clouding your vision of what your organization does, what it looks like, how it operates, why it operates, and a long long list of other etceteras. ___Your Business

This is why the world needs an alternative future other than the one being forced fed us by arrested development kids in Silicon Valley, or the sociopathic frat pack on Wall Street. 

Important read -  What Silicon Valley Thinks of Women

Recently, I shared on my blog a piece addressing the challenge of women and leadership and why we need to move past seeing this as a zero-sum game.

One of the comments I got from that piece was why don't women simply go the entrepreneurial route and start their own businesses.

This article from Newsweek does a great job shining a light on why this is not as easy an alternative as we'd like to think.  Looking at the challenge women entrepreneurs have in raising funds from VCs for their high tech start-ups.

And before we think this is only an issue for the high tech/gaming industry - a niche issue if you will, consider this statement pulled from this article:

"This matters for tens of thousands of reasons, but on the broadest level, since digital technology is our era’s Industrial Revolution, fortunes being made now and business models and corporate cultures forming today will be with us for a century to come—and women are for the most part sidelined."

It's a disturbing read (the encounter entrepreneur/VC capitalist Heidi Roizen had with a senior VP from a computer manufacturer is both shocking and disgusting), it's one we have an obligation to read if we are to continue to look down our noses at other countries and proudly claim how more advanced we are in "women's rights". 

Sure, women are far better off in many developed countries than they are in other areas, but let's be frank and honest that we still have a LONG way to go before we can truly claim to be a shining example of equality and respect for all women in all sectors (just read the stories in this piece for proof of that).

Our mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, aunts, cousins, and nieces deserve far better and we as a society can definitely do more.

Humanity has been given a rare opportunity. WE are living right here, right now in the greatest window of opportunity we have ever known.
What it is, is up to us.

AI will either be a part of getting us there, or a part of keeping from getting there. The choice, my friends, is ours, and ours alone. 

Though a joy to write, this one is hard for me to share because it may stir some unintended controversy. Within the frame of the evolution of our relationship with technology, I broach the question of soul.

This is not the typical perspective with which artificial intelligence is explored, except perhaps in works of fiction. I have no interest in pushing some particular religious or other view of the soul; my goal is simply to ask the question: "what if the soul were real after all, and we simply ignored it in our quest for artificial intelligence?"

To some degree, every company will have to become a math house. This will require more than hiring new kinds of expertise and grafting new skills onto the existing organization. Many companies will need to substantially change the way they are organized, managed, and led. Every organization will have to make use of algorithms in its decision-making. The use of algorithms will have to become as much a part of tomorrow’s management vocabulary as, say, profit margins and the supply chain are today. And every member of the executive team will need to understand his or her role in growing the business.

My friends, I am excited. I have been lusting to get back into the high fidelity audio world again, which as anybody knows, is not a hobby for the feint of wallet. Rudimentary systems in this rarified air run in the $10,000 range, and quickly esculate from there to the $100,000 plus range. 
This week I finally took possession of this beauty, the PS Audio 200CX, inherited from a friend who had no use for it (he had inherited it from his audiofile brother...), and it is quite possibly the best bang-for-buck amp out there.

The PS Audio 200C is scarcely cheap at $1649, but I will issue the following challenge: go to your dealer's and listen. Ignore the mystique and hype surrounding more expensive power amplifiers, and compare the 200C to any amplifier, tube or transistor, at any price in terms of overall performance. I have not heard a better transistor amplifier at any price, and that includes most of the big name amplifiers costing at least twice as much as the PS 200C.

I have heard amplifiers that provide a different mix of sonic advantages; you may well prefer and pay far more for them than you would for the PS Audio 200C. Tailoring a system to your personal taste and listening conditions can get to be an extraordinarily expensive proposition, and some sound characteristics depend on technologies and parts that don't come cheap. I will argue, however, that the superior features available in the best rival amplifiers all involve significant trade-offs relative to the 200C. You only get their advantages by giving up some of merits available from the 200C.

I am so excited! Speakers are next on the list....___

This, is very good.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees the end of the website as a useful landing site. 

Solving customer's problems, in a very fluid, enjoyable experience is, imo, the holy grail. 

I love this article. It is exactly what I have been talking about with +Eric Enge and +Duane Forrester over the last year.

People laugh when I say we should expect Websites and the Internet as a whole to be irrelevant in the coming years.

“There will be so many IP addresses…so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it,” he explained. “It will be part of your presence all the time. Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.”

Oh Boy
Does This Ring True

I have always avoided pyramid organizational structures like the plague, preferring the niches of free agency. The thought of climbing the organizational ladder always gave me the creeps, or worse, being on some else's rung. 
Less secure, but more freedom. (early on in my 55 years, I learned job security is an illusion, but that is another story. )
Yet, free agency has its constraints, one my own ambition ached to move beyond. 
Yet...

That feeling of being a fraud, like who the hell am I to lead anything, rings very true. 
But at this stage of the game, even going back to my semi-comfortable world of free agency is not an option. 
The biggest challenge in building something big, much, much bigger than I, isn't the concept and plan implementation, it's getting past the fraud feeling. 

You're On Someone Else's Rung

I think most people can relate to the idea of wanting to achieve great things in their jobs and personal lives.

So when moments like this come along where you see someone else so good at what they do and so respected, there’s a weird, lingering doubt that creeps in.

You wonder if you’re as good at your job as you’d like to think

That’s the funny thing with ambition – it can make you feel like a fraud, because you’re never quite where you want to be.

This piece by +Joel Klettke is so dead on perfect. The only bad thing? No image to make this post sing when it rolls through social feeds.

Social Business
Smart Swarms
#socialbusiness   #smartswarms   #trust   #organizationsofthefuture  

A power trio comprised of some of the best, and my favourite minds here on G+. 
Regular readers of mine know I often refer to, or talk about "Smart Swarms". 
A Smart Swarm is the cultivated intelligence and wisdom with a network. The essence of we are smarter than me. 
What do we want to be 'smart' about? 
Tomorrow +David Amerland , +Gideon Rosenblatt , and +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales will be addressing the question of Does Social Business Make Sense?
Why do I trust these three with this question? Because I know they use swarm intelligence to provide the best possible insights. 

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 +Gideon Rosenblatt. 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 +David Amerland  with +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales  and at the controller's helm, making sure that everything runs smoothly will be +John Ellis with +SEOWiSE.

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! Let's get this conversation started!___Social Business

Clouds

Some nice finely clouded interplay, high above me, just outside my building. (to the left, the tower part of the complex in which I reside. I'm in the "mid-rise", which is just past the tower.) Taken as I near home after a long walk, and some work via my new Cromebook at a coffee house on the other side of downtown.
