Social Media Today144,621*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!

ISOOSI Research Engine3,475*Roles and Stories in Effective Marketing* with Dr. Mani Saint-Victor ( @118176779352783168766 ) and @107656088609554509650  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. *Links* G+ Hangout Event: http://isoo.si/Ab23D Watch on YouTube: http://isoo.si/t3B2S Main Comment stream: http://isoo.si/Ab23D Related recommended reading: http://isoo.si/q5FWn Join our wonderful guests @118176779352783168766 and @107656088609554509650, the   #isoosichat   regulars @113426828273677356184, @106515636986325493284 and @116843668885160648294 for this discussion.Roles and Stories in Effective Marketing2014-07-01 21:00:0074  
SEOWiSE951*The Paradigm Shift* _The Business of Communicating in a Semantic Web_ *New:* We're trying to track activity so if you share this event anywhere else please add #paradigmshift ! I am thrilled to announce my newest show with @115620878851836664537. Through our interactions on his brilliant @110793088683846123648, 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 down* _In 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!

Meloney Hall3,446Teacher 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 +113865527017476906160  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.asp Select 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 + You337We 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 @110746124112827812577 @109237790792840071389  and @106867567997804136918    as we explore innovation to create opportunity which can lead to real change. Mere mortals?

Jim Shankle1,701It'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 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S76tXQ5qZ30  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, and 2) 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

martin shervington1,033,489Ronnie is my main go to guy for all questions about YouTube. As such, I thought I would grab some time and ask him things like: Why should people on Google+ be looking at YouTube now? Anything we should be avoiding doing when we get started? What does he think about monetizing videos? How can people use it for business? Are there ways to get better YouTube search results? What top tips does he have for people getting started? How does he approach doing analysis? How can we increase our subscribers and why is this useful to do? And many more to follow...

Yifat Cohen74,419*Do you feel like a good parent when you give your child juice for lunch instead of french fries?* I would. *And I would be wrong.* If you're like me, you're probably going through the same parent's dilemma as I am - *how do I keep my child healthy while allowing him to enjoy all the goods out there?* This is such a big thing for me that my step son has named me a healthologist (there's more to it, join the Hangout to get the whole story - it's worth it). *Quality - Quantity - Timing* My daily struggle with what to put in my child's mouth so that he has a healthy diet is shared with many parents, I'm sure. What to put in his lunch box other than peanut butter and jelly? What's for dinner? (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 Reality* Dr.@100118793214522675509 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 HANGOUT* Bring 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.

She worked as a General Practitioner in her hometown of Oviedo, and also performed Clinical Medical Research Projects at the University Medical School. She has served as Chairman of Pediatrics at Round Rock Medical Center for three years, most recently in 2008.

Just as I was trying to develop relationships with my prospects and customers on a personal level, I immediately recognized the potential of digital relationships as well."Small Business Workshop Series: Making Sure Your Business is LinkedIn2012-10-24 02:30:0013  
Mick Fealty13,756All across the world, systems are crashing. In banking we've seen debt slicing and long haul internal systems like that of RBS/NatWest/Ulster Bank literally falling apart. In Europe post war notions of solidarity are being stretched to bursting as sovereign nations argue over the degree to which fiscal sovereignty can be shared.   Further afield the Arab nations continue in popular tumult after several generations of acquiescence under varying degrees of autocracy. Yet like Greece, Spain and Portugal to the north - each just one or two generations ahead - the Arab world is finding that democracy does not come in a shiny, ready wrapped box. Even in more settled democracies, once venerable institutions are finding huge problems keeping up with the speed at which their citizens can communicate, not through them but around them.   Why not join our panel this Friday for #DigitalLunch  at the usual time, where we will attempt to serve starters about 1pm and finish before the hour is out? #DigitalLunch: Crashing systems2012-09-28 14:00:007

Robert Best2,685Google+ Relevance CircleWhat people of "relevance" do we have in common? Care to share?This big shared circle contains my most "relevant" circles according to G+. It also only contains people/profiles who post publicly (Either occasionally or prolifically).Do you recognize others in the list? (I think the probability is high)As far as I know, the visual beside the "Add people" button below shows you the 8 people from this circle who are most "relevant" to you. Also, if you click that add people button, the list inside is ordered by "relevance".Some people in this circle I know very well... others I haven't met at all (Besides interfacing with what they share publicly on G+) I'm curious, what circles do we share of high relevance? Give a few people shout outs! Let's have a random chat.You were likely notified of this post... I normally don't share to any of my specific circles, so as to avoid sending out unwanted notifications... But since I have you and your attention here... HELLO! Have we talked before? Why do you think I have you circled? What's of relevance for you? (Besides people on G+) If we do know each other... Have we been in touch lately? If not, let's please catch up!2015-03-03 01:03:39455111

Sakari Maaranen3,848Here's a circle that's about Life on Earth. Add these people and organizations for everything about the #environment , #biodiversity , and the kind of #values  that can bring sustainable development.This is a broad range of people, many of whom are not necessarily activists, but scientists and experts with generally the right kind of mindset and deep knowledge of these and related issues. Some are thinkers, artists, or younger people with similar interests.Shared because we need more this kind of thinking! Feel free to re-share —  #sustainability  deserves all our attention and is needed right now.Let's make 2015 the year of positive change!Oh, and please let me know, if I'm missing some active people or important organizations. Remember that I don't care about status. It doesn't matter if you are someone new or young or already a superstar, or if your main field is something else. All it takes is some genuine drive to engage and/or follow these topics. So don't be shy! You are as welcome as anyone.2015-01-03 23:20:49115200

Jason Hurtado Daniels29,824High Content Circle at 30,000I am sharing the New Year’s edition of my High Content circle as my community tops the 30,000 mark. This is my most carefully curated circle yet, and includes some of the most interesting people who have joined my G+ community over the past two and a half years. This group of artists, business leaders, educators, engineers, futurists, programmers, and scientists represents the kind of collaborative core we'll need to solve the problems of this century.Not everyone could make in. This circle contains proven friends and new acquaintances.  There are representatives of every continent and dozens of professions.

It's Never Too Late
Perspective

Perspective, as they say, is everything. 
Put another way. Companies that don't or barely exist right now, will be household names in the next 5-10 years. 

Today is the Best Time in History to Start that Thing. You're Not Late.

I missed this insightful and uplifting post from +Kevin Kelly last year, You Are Not Late. In hindsight from 2015 the opportunities that lay in wait in 1985, ready to be turned into world-changing realities, were immense. If only we had known then what we know now. And yet, in 2045 we will look back on 2015 in exactly the same way. Transformative, world-changing opportunities exist, just waiting for you to grab them and turn them into reality. There has never been a better time to do this than today. You are never too late to begin.

>> Modularity and Flexibility.  To this self-explanatory goal should be added a desire for access to flexible services (such as software applications), all of which should enhance agility.

U.S.A. the entity, is starving it's critical physical infrastructure, turning increasingly anti-science, and its eduction system is increasingly out of touch. Tech giants like Microsoft, however, take a very different approach. 
Fwiw, up here in Canada, it's is only marginally (if at all) better.

The Electrical Storage Wars
The Good Kind of Arms Race

Way back in the hey day of +Howard Rheingold 's Brainstorms community (my first, and best experience with "Smart Rooms" and "networked intelligence". Howard gathered in his community of 5-600 people some incredibly bright, inquisitive minds), we talked (well, virtually talked) a lot about energy, and more importantly--Storage. 

Electricity is a wonderful, amazingly versatile energy source. All except in the ability to store it for future demand. 
Fossil fuels, while dirty (in more ways than one), had the huge advantage of storage. 
Any device needing power or energy, from drills, cars, chainsaws, lights, etc were defined by their needs for stored energy or fuel.

For electricity, as an energy source, it's Achilles Heel was always the battery, that is, it's ability to be stored for demand.
For it to seriously challenge the oil hegemony, it needed to radical improve in storage. 
(the enormously gifted science minds on Brainstorms, in excruciating detail, explained why electrical storage was such a tough nut to crack)

Now that we have, in effect, an arms race to solve the problem, it seems we are much closer to a significant breakthrough. 
This is a pretty good article, not so much on the technology, but the players, and the kind of money involved. ___

The Auto Disruption
The Floodgates Are Open

I agree, and this is just the very thin edge of a very big wedge. 
My angle on this, is localized manufacturing tied together with a network model ecosystem. 
There is no reason at all to have the industrial era model for the creation of what will be the mass customization of the personalized auto.

Life Imitates Art?
Or Art Imitates Life?

You decide. 

Good Morning Google+
Quick story about the lighter (or in this case, heavier)  side of Art. Just before Easter, a crane that was to set up a large tent in the parking lot of the Dallas Museum of Art toppled and fell over.  According to the local news, many of those come to see the spectacle thought it was a new exhibit.

Can you just imagine how the cognoscenti were prosing on and on about
- the deeper meaning of this sculpture,
- how it expressed our modern culture,
- the amazing contrast between the world of Art and prosaic reality
- the fantastic authenticity of this piece of conceptual Art,
- blah, blah, blah

This reminded me of the case in 2001, when a cleaner at the Eyestorm Gallery in London confused an impromptu installation Damien Hirst had made the night before and 'cleaned it up' (see here: http://goo.gl/NP4wtO).  It also raises (again) questions about the nature of art, does it need to be 'pretty'? Does it need to have 'meaning'? Where does the meaning come from?  

Obviously, the meaning any viewer finds in any object or situation is always a subjective one that only this specific viewer can have. It is based on one's education, life experiences, attitudes and of course personal convictions an taste.  But individual meanings are also influenced by family and peers, culture, as well as 'the done thing'. 

The cleaner who removed Hirst's garbage pile was acting on his own personal set of beliefs, what do you want to bet that many of those gaping at the crane and reluctantly saw it as 'Art', originally thought it was a crane that had fallen over?

And that, my friends, is a fantastic example of the social construction of reality!

Create your very own reality today, and tread lightly

My New Mantra
#businessventures   #threedeeprinting  

I've a new venture in the works. I've been debating whether to write about it here.
I will give a hint:
Network scaled localized custom auto manufacturing.
I'm working now to pull together a local core team, and move quickly towards a minimal viable product offering. 
And by custom, I also mean every unit is pre-sold. Combining my extensive experience in custom homebuilding, with everything I've learned about networked business models, and a passion for the auto, into one very exciting new venture.

Yes!

Chase the Vision, Not the Money

...or as Tony Hsieh said,

"Chase the vision, not the money; the money will end up following you."

A bit idealistic? Yes. But you know what-- chasing money never leads to satisfaction. It always leads to more chasing. 

Pursue your passion, fight for your dreams and help as many people as you can. A great mentor once said:

"You can have everything in life that you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want." -Zig Ziglar

Do well. Be well. And go get em'!

In Case You Were Wondering
The Hell of Corporate Kool-Aid

Sixteen-hour days are filled with meetings after meetings followed by more meetings. While this is somewhat standard in most organisations, meetings at Apple reeked of toxic agendas designed to deliberately trip people up, make fools of the less respected and call people out. Team spirit is non existent as ‘internal customers’ attack individuals and push agendas that satisfy their morning egos.

Hours upon hours were wasted in meetings to prepare for meetings in preparation for other meetings to the point where little work actually got done.

Odds Are...
You're Going To Lose Anyways

+John Foster and I had this theory, that most people in, um, leadership positions know this, at some level, and just would rather ride it out until they can cash out, leaving the mess and carnage for somebody else to deal with. 
Very few companies have the courage, and the luck, to successfully transform. 
Their model, the business, their customers, their talent is going to be somebody else's lunch, and it's probably isn't going to be their current competitors. 

Are you an attacker, a defender, or a sitting duck?
by Ram Charan - World Economic Forum
#leadership

The time has come to make your own preparations for leading your business. Conditions are changing, and so too are the capabilities demanded of leaders. Management training programs and career paths that move you up step by step in a functional silo don’t cut it. They were designed in earlier times when external conditions were more stable. They do little to prepare you for an environment in which industries and market spaces can get obliterated practically overnight. Nor do they help you develop the large-scale entrepreneurialism that underlies many recent successes, from Facebook and Google to Netflix and Twitter.

What matters now is how quickly you can spot the opportunities that are emerging and mobilize the organization to pursue them. You need to be on the offense, ahead of the curve, creating a bend in the road that other players have to negotiate around.

For the Win
Game Changer, To Say The Least
#scienceeveryday  

While the prospect of bacteria resistant to antibacteria, with potentially devestating scenarios, has been hanging over our collective heads for some time, it's great news to see we've come up with alternative solutions. 

Teixobactin: New Antibiotic that promises to end resistance

Prof Laura Piddock from the University of Birmingham said it was an "amazing" and "exciting" study and that the tool "could be a game-changer".

"The discovery of this new antibiotic, from a new class with a novel mode of action, is very exciting.

"I hope that teixobactin will now enter clinical development as the basis for a new drug to treat infections."

There is wide concern that the world is cruising into a "post-antibiotic" era.

It could leave many common infections untreatable and make many staples of modern medicine - including surgery, chemotherapy and organ transplants - impossible.

Prof Mark Woolhouse from the University of Edinburgh added: "What most excites me is the tantalising prospect that this discovery is just the tip of the iceberg."

He said it was vital the antibiotic pipeline was reopened "if we are to avert a public-health disaster".

'Unfinished business'Dr James Mason from King's College London said the antibiotic pipeline had "all but dried up".

"It's impressive what they've done. From one soil sample they've found one new antibiotic, and their approach opens up a new route to a huge number of potential products.

"They have shown that screening soil microorganisms for antibiotics is unfinished business."

However, he cautioned that although the new antibiotic had exciting properties, it was too early to conclude it would entirely avoid the development of resistance.

The researchers said their discovery was similar to vancomycin. It was discovered in the 1950s, but it took until the late 1980s for resistance to develop.

"They argue the delay in resistance is an inherent property, but vancomycin was kept back and not used that extensively," Dr Mason said.___For the Win

Ummm
Yes

And for the truly skilled builder, you know how to modify as you build. 

To designers of complex systems, the need for formal specs should be as obvious as the need for blueprints of a skyscraper. But few engineers write specs because they have little time to learn how on the job, and they are unlikely to have learned in school. Some graduate schools teach courses on specification languages, but few teach how to use specification in practice. It’s hard to draw blueprints for a skyscraper without ever having drawn one for a toolshed.

This is Significant

Software Defined Networking - Everybody needs it. Nobody understands it. We explain it!

Beginning with well known fact, that routers, switches can be configured to work in a fail save mode, being redundant (see BGP - Border Gateway Protocol) and several selected ports can be switched to build their own 'collision domain', called VLAN, there was an urgent need to have VLAN groups depending on protocol basis (e.g. port 80, http) for e.g. load balancing.

Directly after CISCO™, JUNIPER™ did implemented that, customers were asking for firewalling (IP masquerading, NAT), bandwidth control for realtime services, like video streaming (Netflix®), telephony (Skype™), video conferencing, decentralized server clusters. Things became complex, more and more software controlled. Good old ASICS, doing well in routers, switches until now, couldn't solve these complex tasks any longer.

So some CISCO® employees founded JUNIPER®, building up routers, switches with FreeBSD and ASICS as 10/100 GbE network card, gaining significant market share.

Now, something magic happend. Some guys did find out, that memory I/O of a simple INTEL® Core™ i5 is fast enough to care about everything running - Linux!

Have a look at next picture: Jetway NF9G-QM77 plus Jetway ADE4INLANG 4 Port PCI-E daughter board, together available for far under $300. (Available at: http://www.jetway.com.tw/jw/ipcboard_view.asp?productid=996&proname=NF9G-QM77 ). For more ports see cheap $20 TP-LINK 8 port switch (see diagram).

With that hardware you have everything in one: Router, switch, VLANs, redundancy, bandwidth control, firewall.

But not only that. Running isolated in secure LXC/Docker™ containers, you can start e.g. a 'silent, reversed proxy' like Varnish or Squid. Means: All bypassing traffic (http, ftp, video streaming) will be cached in the Linux machine, being internally rerouted (#ip route add...), massively reducing physical traffic going through your network of connected #Linux machines. Akamai® is known to offer such 'caching proxy' services, massively reducing traffic on #Microsoft servers e.g. at "patch day".

Why 6 ports? 6 ports are the minimum and sufficient number of physical ports needed to build up even largest redundant logical networks. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_topology

It's important to understand, that physical topology and logical topology, real traffic flow and logical trafic flow as well as real routing/switching and virtual routing/switching now totally have been decoupled. See diagram.

With #SDN, a physical port in california can build a logical, (firewalled) collision domain with some physical ports in europe, with or without proxy cache somewhere in between to reduce traffic. That's, why companies, like Netflix® with their global #FreeBSD server farms and global million customer base can fullfil their business, do exist.

So, in fact, just by connecting some handful of these magic Linux SDN machines you can throw out almost all network hardware, you ever had.

Now you might ask: Who, the hell, is able to administrate such complex SDNs? From my point of view, you have exactly two choices:

Either install #UBUNTU™ #OpenStack™, pay for expensive courses learning to administrate that stuff, or use OpenWRT zero administration machines. Based on B.A.T.M.A.N. protocol, just buy some new hardware, plug in, start #OpenWRT and everything is configured automatically. It's building up a professional, highly redundant grid network - automatically. No special knowledge required.

Buying "ready to use" #CISCO® or #JUNIPER® hardware, IMHO, is no option. U.S. NSA is, in fact, spying everywhere (See E. #Snowden papers), silently copying even your internal companies traffic onto #NSA servers in the U.S.A., (self) authorized by U.S. law (see U.S. 'patriot act'). Alternatively buy open sourced #Huawei Linux machines.

Have fun!

What can not be combined on a single manuscript page, is not been thought through yet ready for decision. (Dwight David Eisenhower) ___This is Significant

When Queen Elizabeth asked British economists in November 2008, “Why did nobody notice it?” she was not referring to the dodgy lending, which had been noticed far and wide. Rather, the original QE2 was referring to the interconnections that transformed a provincial banking problem into a global economic crisis. The best answer the experts could come up with, after eight months of debate, was that there had been “a failure of the collective imagination of many bright people.”___

Mentioned in the Scientific American article is IBM's ADEPT project. Here is a very good slide show overviewing the potential of IoT, the technical and business hurdles facing IoT and a good primer on how blockchain (using Ethereum's open source model - IBM forked the current Ethereum code with support of the team).

In essence it looks at the potential of IoT being restrained, or requiring, three core elements:
   • Trustless peer-to-peer messaging
   • Secure distributed data sharing
   • A robust and scalable form of device coordination

It can be argued these core requirements are necessary as well for the Internet itself and even day-to-day computing going forward.

The Automation of the Publishing Industry

This is a new piece, a super in-depth look at the impact that automation has had on the publishing industry. There's lots of research in this one, as I dug into the actual impact that automation has had on newspaper, magazine and book publishers, as well as employment amongst writers, editors and other people in this industry. The results actually surprised me;  it's a more nuanced story than what I'd imagined. 

The other thing this piece does is look at what the automation of publishing is doing to the packaging of human knowledge, and how we are starting to see the early signs of a very new type of publishing, a wrapping of our information in a layer of artificial intelligence along the lines of Google Now and other virtual personal assistants. 

This piece was a lot of work and I'd like to get it to people in the publishing sector who might find it useful. If you know someone in that industry, and you find this piece interesting, please consider helping me get this to them.

Once we are able to layer these pools and streams of information with the kind of machine understanding outlined above, we will unleash a huge boon to humanity. Where there is light, there is also darkness, however, and so we should expect these same systems to also bring us many new problems. The one I will close with relates to how much of our humanity remains in the future of our automated publishing and knowledge systems

Such is what a python produces. 

So where Lauckner is right, when he states here:
Instead, he argued, GM is adapting to the changing realities of automotive innovation. Many of the best ideas for cars of the future won’t come from car companies at all, but rather from non-traditional auto suppliers, like Microsoft or Google, and from start-up enterprises that are on the leading edge of fields like advanced materials, telecommunications and green technology. “We no longer rely solely on our in-house expertise, which is a big change from where we’ve been in the past,”

This is true, and a welcoming shift in mental models for a C-Suite exec. 

However, a stifling bureaucratic culture chews up innovation, and instead regurgitates out cars that are approved by bureaucrats and bean counters, not car enthusiasts. 

If the end product is any indication, little has changed with the GM bureaucracy that has been muffling the car company for the last forty years. 

What is needed, is a more swarmed approach, where the brilliance that is within GM can be unleashed, with more risks taken to more daring designs and offerings. Design, and innovation, needs to be pushed ever further out towards, what +John Hagel would call, the edge. 
A look around the auto show was indicative enough that other car companies are doing it better than the python that is GM.___

It's hard work. Really hard work. The difference between, "Meh, good enough". And Greatness. 

With technology, and social networks, where we can find our like minded travellers on the path to greatness, and the kinds of organizational models and systems that technologies and networks can create, we can leverage our passions, our skills, our drive towards doing great things, like never before. 
I know, because every single day, I wake up with my Glia model, and the abundance of opportunity. My greatest challenge was sorting through opportunity. 

This is more than just being the best you can be. Or building great companies, with great culture and great people. This is so much more than that. This is about the opportunity to rebuild great societies. And communities. And neighbourhoods. Greatness and leadership can be directed where ever your passions lead you. 

Of course, the only way we can create such an atmosphere in our workplaces and communities is if we first be open and honest with ourselves about where we are today. About the real challenges we face and the genuine opportunities that exist for us to not only overcome these obstacles, but to strengthen our resolve and abilities to keep pressing ahead despite them.

Such conversations are naturally difficult, as they should be because they challenge us to question both ourselves, and how we see and understand the world around us.

But this is what successful leaders excel at – they inspire us to embrace this difficulty because we can see what we stand to gain from such conversations and opportunities.

Sure, our brain might prefer the easy route, employing processes like motivated reasoning to reduce the uncertainties and challenges that seem to increase with each passing day.

However, leadership has never been about taking the easy path, of simply relying on our assumptions to guide our decisions, and choosing to accept ‘good enough’ so we can get through our day.

Rather, the hallmark of real leadership is being willing to challenge our assumptions in order to better understand the obstacles our employees face and how we can help to overcome them. In so doing, we can fuel that collective drive to not settle for anything less than being better than we are today.___

Those that make everyone around them better, inspire performance, and emotional engage and connect with their team and people.

Tech Journalism
The Ultimate Oxymoron
#boosterism   #criticalthinking   #journalism  

Hype is so much easier to do than journalism, and given the click bait culture of modern media, more profitable. Mediocre sensationalism rises to the top, critical thinking journalism languishes at the bottom.

For the attention deficit masses, this is excusable. Let them eat cake, as Marie Antoinette might say.

But for the so-called VCs that threw money at Meerkat?? This isn't even gambling!   Even +Brian Solis was sucked in! I'm not sure if he put down cold hard cash on this dog, but as of last week he was pimping it like it was going to be the biggest thing Ev-hah!!

Even a casual observer like me could see, once Periscope was released by Twitter, Meerkat was done (I called it last week, btw!)

More Clouds Are Coming
With An Increased Risk Of Rain
#metaphors   #disruption  

I like this post a lot, from +Brian Vellmure . What was a key role within the C-Suite, the CIO, is being continually disrupted, often making this role a liability, rather than an asset. It is a tough choice for the CEO. 
But even the nature of the Cloud is going to keep changing, which an adaptive CIO should help guide. 
Cloud providers are quickly becoming static liabilities as each one's business model might not be innovating fast enough to properly service the client. 
And with blockchain technology set to go mainstream in 2015, the Cloud itself is going to see a major shift. 

More so, this same accelerating technological innovation is going to start hitting other members of the C-Suite, like the CFO, for one significant example.

Are we reaching the days where the very nature of the C-Suite is becoming a liability? I firmly believe it is. ___
