Doug Jackson2,754HANGING OUT WITH DOUG JACKSON & STREETJELLY.COM Last Streetjelly performance I had 51 listeners stop by to listen, enjoy, tip etc.  Would love to best that by 49.....to make an even 100.   So, what do you say?  The majority of listeners were from Google +.  How AMAZING! Point your browser to http://www.streetjelly.com and look for "Doug Jackson" (Hey! That's me!) Remember to get there a few minutes early if you do not already have a streetjelly account and create one. The After Party Hangout invite was going out to my entire fan-base before.  That will no longer happen.  Invites will only go to Google + fans that come to the show.  First nine to accept will be the party.  I will however post the link on the Google + event page, to the hangout, and you can try to get in, if someone drops out. Thanks again everyone.....you guys/gals are great! Hope to see you there, and thanks! DougDoug Jackson Live on StreetJelly.com2014-08-09 02:00:0012

NASA2,836,469Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008308

Hooray for small steps, and today was a day of small steps.  Every little step counts when you are fighting back against depression.

1. Went shopping for a gift card for a friend at my local bookstore, slipped it inside a birthday card and dropped it off at his house.

2. Added up my pharmacy receipts and mailed them off to my insurance provider ( a chore I always put off, but today I forced myself to do it).

3. Reached out via facebook to a friend I hadn't spoken to in years.

4. Telephoned another friend and made plans to get together next week.

5. Walked to and from my local Starbucks and had a vanilla bean frappuccino.

And I'm feeling pretty good this evening.

Hooray for small steps, and today was a day of small steps.  Every little step counts when you are fighting back against depression.

1. Went shopping for a gift card for a friend at my local bookstore, slipped it inside a birthday card and dropped it off at his house.

2. Added up my pharmacy receipts and mailed them off to my insurance provider ( a chore I always put off, but today I forced myself to do it).

3. Reached out via facebook to a friend I hadn't spoken to in years.

4. Telephoned another friend and made plans to get together next week.

5. Walked to and from my local Starbucks and had a vanilla bean frappuccino.

And I'm feeling pretty good this evening.

Oh God not another streaming music service.

Facebook to Compete with Google, Apple, Spotify in Music?

Facebook may be planning to make a launch into the music market, taking on YouTube, Google Play Music, Spotify, Apple Music, and other services.

The social network is unarguably well positioned to capture an audience, and their video efforts have been notable so far (without necessarily denting competitors, however).

That said, Facebook has also long been plagued with a 'Failure to Launch' new products. Witness Facebook Home, Facebook Email, Poke, Paper, etc... A more fundamental problem is about basic user behavior: people use Facebook mostly for what it is, a place for social networking. Seeing videos or news articles or whatever tends to be incidental, rather than a go-to reason to be there. Someone Posts it, we click, no one does and we don't; Promoted Posts lose attention if over saturated or poorly done; and Facebook itself can only 'crank the algo' to boost new efforts just so far, especially when they wish to launch to multiple products around the same time.

They have a Constellation Problem. Google, while best known for a Search Engine, is a Constellation of go-to products like Search, Email, Video, etc... Each of these can function as a standalone focused on its own purposes; YouTube isn't forced to launch new products for the Search team, which isn't forced to launch new products for the email team. In general, each does what they do best. Apple is also a Constellation: Phones, Apps, and Services, including Music.

Spotify, on the contrary, is only music, with no other distractions whatsoever. It needn't balance musichounds with rockhounds, scientists, and grandmothers.

Facebook therefore needs to achieve a rapid uptake of more-than-casual users of a new product. They can't give it preference in the News Feed forever or entirely if people don't bite.

In addition, getting people to spend money with Facebook can hardly be said to have disrupted any online markets, except maybe Flash games and those are no longer in fashion.

If they can overcome these challenges, however, they could be a huge threat to established players, assuming they aren't torpedoed by simple market fatigue (i.e. "Oh no, not ANOTHER Subscription Music Service!').___Oh God not another streaming music service.

Honestly, I did not know who this was until the second time the picture crossed my Facebook stream.  Good for her.  I should look so good at 65!!

I wish her the best of luck.  To paraphrase a line from Hairspray: So she better brace herself for a whole lotta ugly comin’ at her from a never-ending parade of stupid.

Phenomenal aerial footage using a camera mounted on a drone.

A Drone in Italy

If you missed my review earlier this week, here’s an edit of some of the drone footage I recently captured with 7 days in Italy. It was filmed entirely with a +DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter and edited with Adobe Premiere Pro. Additional color correction was applied using Adobe After Effects and a little bit of Photoshop.

Trying out the new Google Photos app.  I'm really impressed with the automatic subject identification of your photos.  It's not 100% by a long shot but it does make some surprisingly good guesses.
