ISOOSI Research Engine3,476This week on the #ISOOSICHAT  we are excited to have special guest +Barry Schwartz from Search Engine Roundtable (SER). Barry will be joining our regular #ISOOSIChat panelists including +Ammon Johns +Bill Slawski and +Carlos Fernandes.Barry has provided a very unique and valuable commentary on search engines and the search marketing industry for many years. Barry and the SER team report on the most interesting threads taking place at various popular Search Engine Marketing forums each day. Search Engine Roundtable not only reports on these topical issues, but also provides a synopsis that provides greater detail on these forum threads.One of SER's primary goals is provide a single source for the reader to visit to locate the most interesting threads covered at the SEM forums.Those in our audience that visit or contribute to forums know that sometimes things can get stated that are not based on facts. Sometimes these observations may lead to statements that sound like fact, but they are unfounded. We are after all talking about search engines here and considerations that are impacted by their algorithms - which unfortunately we in the SEM arena don't have access to :)Observations such as these can quickly turn from threads with some small incorrect assumptions into more widespread rumors and sometimes into larger myths that stick around for a longer period of time.Barry and his team do a great job of monitoring “hot topics” on the forums, presenting all sides of those important issues while contributing to the discussion with their own valued opinions.Bill Slawski, (Director of Search Marketing at Go Fish Digital) is well known for his vast knowledge of Google and other search engines and the patents that have been filed relating to their ranking algorithms. Although it is difficult to have certainty about the value and mix of individual search engine ranking signals, Bill has the notable ability to always bring always bring it back to facts…. referencing related patents, interviews or official statements on the subjeSearch Marketing Rumors, Myths and Truths2014-03-18 20:00:0061

Those 4 Girls998Welcome to +Those 4 Girls weekly show!!This week we are talking about Gender Roles - When Were They Defined  & How They Affect TodayWhen were gender roles defined?What was in place before gender roles were defined?Who defined them?How do gender roles affect us today in our current society?Meet Our Guests This Week!!!+Nicholas Cardot  - My life, my experiences, and my education have two unique facets to them, and on this page, I hope to showcase how the two have blended to develop me into the person I am today. As a former active duty soldier now serving in the United States Army Reserves, I garner wisdom from both the Military training and from my civilian business adventures.As an Army Reservist Psychological Operations Specialist, I work to influence the behavior of enemy personnel and foreign audiences. In this line of work, we distribute targeted information or conduct specific activities with the purpose of changing emotions, ways of thinking, and ultimately behavior. We study target audiences. We work to understand cultures, symbols and practices. We then use what we learn from these studies to identify the most effective courses of action to change their behavior.As a graphic design artist, I find that these skills from Psychological Operations become invaluable in guiding every aspect of a successful design. The typography, imagery, placement, color and every other aspect of a print or web design can work together to influence the behavior of a potential or returning customer. Each aspect of a design can communicate alongside the actual message contained in the words. A design can convey emotions, nostalgia, patriotism, and much more to support or reinforce the message being delivered. As an online marketer, these skills become equally valuable. In the modern landscape of social media, many lessons can be taken from Psychological Operations. By carefully crafting targeted messages and responses, you can subtly create and steer conversations and gain rapport with people around the world. This strategy of visual and social communication is one of my greatest passions.+Eli Fennell - I've lived in South Florida my whole life, and it would be hard for me to imagine living anywhere else.  I was born to two wonderful parents who are still together after aGender Roles - When Were They Defined & How They Affect Us Today2014-03-13 18:00:0096

Eli Fennell65,218Moms are some of the hardest working people in the world.  Working moms especially can teach you a lot about the tricky balance between home and hearth and struggling to pay for those things.Blogging is a powerful tool used by many moms to earn extra income from home, and as a means of connecting with the world beyond the home.  Mommy Bloggers can be some of the most creative bloggers and blog marketers out there.This week we're fortunate enough to have three great mom bloggers joining us on the show.  +Nikol Murphy is the Owner and Founder of +Talking Moose Media, a company that broadcasts your conferences and meetings via social media.  She also runs the +Mom Complicated blog along with +Vanessa Law. +Leigh Powell Hines, founder of the HinesSight Blog, Luxury Travel Editor for Skimbaco Lifestyle, and writer for Examiner.com, knows the best places to eat and stay in North Carolina.  As a mom to two young children, she knows the best in family travel, but as a parent in her mid-forties, she seeks out restaurants and hotels that adults can enjoy, too.+allison carter is Founder, Editor, & Writer of GoDanskerMom.com, and writes a guide for parents in the Triangle region (MominChapelHillNC.com).  Her work has appeared in several places including HerStories Project, ChapelBoro, Carolina Parent, Durham Macaroni Kid, Triangle Moms on Main, Vend Raleigh, and the Raleigh News & Observer‘s Triangle Mom2Mom.  I'll be interviewing them about Mommy Blogging, the skills, tools, and commitment necessary to be successful at it, and how their insights can help other Mom Bloggers and bloggers in general.  Join us this Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8 PM ET!  We hope to see you there! #dmcshow   Digital Media Connections #4 - Mommy Blogging2014-02-27 02:00:0017

What's Your Story?Before I got here to Google Plus, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing and blogging. I travel a lot. Over the last three years I've spent time in thirteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days. _The conversation here is very real and the issues we talk about are engaging and I have met people on G+ who are simply superb to connect with. I post frequently on what grabs my attention. I share insights from my writing and research and I take part in many conversations where I feel I can deliver value.  Social media is changing everything. How we shape that change and what we do in the aftermath is down to us. _This week's show is sponsored by:+Holiday Inn Washington DC-Central/White House  A full service hotel, conveniently located in downtown Washington, DC The hotel is located within walking distance of the White House, DC Convention Center, and two separate Metro/subway stops. http://www.inndc.comEach week +Christine DeGraff & +Mia Voss  spotlight guests who share What's Your Story?

Eli Fennell65,218There are different ways to build a following, and different goals in terms of reach and scale.  The small business owner may dream of internet media stardom, but probably doesn't need it like the Big Brand, their goals may be more modest (reaching that small but critical fan base, for example).  Likewise, the Tech Blogger may never rival the audience of Britney Spears, but can build a respectable and valuable audience in their own ways.This Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 8 PM ET, we'll be discussing this issue with three guests who have approached it in very different ways and with different opportunities as well.+Chris Jenkins is a web guy, home brewer, and "glasshole" (Google Glass Explorer) from my home state of Florida.  His turn ons include long walks on the beach while playing Ingress, and his turn offs include poorly coded or incomplete websites and blogs.+Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales is an Authority Marketer & Brand Strategist at +SEOWiSE, a graduate student at Kent State University, and also a Glass Explorer.  She is a bit of a health nut and the proud owner of three dogs.+Aaron Wood is a social media "International Man of Mystery".  His Google+ profile tells you very little specific about him, yet he earned a spot on Google+'s coveted  Suggested User List and has gained hundreds of thousands of followers.  He's not afraid to call out anything that bothers him, and when he does, he usually goes viral.We'll be discussing the different ways to build a following depending on your goals and the opportunities that present themselves.  I'll be adding my own perspective as a Two Time Veteran of the Google+ Algorithmic Suggested User List.It should be a very insightful discussion with a great group of people, and there will almost certainly be random moments of humor and silliness.  We hope you'll join us!#digitalmediaconnections  #DMCshow  #throughglass  Digital Media Connections #3 - Building a Following2014-02-13 02:00:0034 
ISOOSI Research Engine3,476+Mark Traphagen joins the ISOOSI chat today at 3pm EST and we're super excited to have him on the show. Mark has been one of the people for me personally (and I know for many others too) that has really been instrumental in highlighting the benefits of Google+. But, not only the easy pickings that are clear to see. Mark evangelizes the use of Google+ as not only a business network but a social network. A social network that is on a different level to anything else we have on the interwebs. He'll be the first to say that it has given him opportunities that would never have existed before it. And I for one share that experience and couldn't agree more.All businesses can learn from this hangout... and we'll start really with the basics too. We know we have many small businesses that use ISOOSI and list their businesses in our search directory that currently have zero presence on Google+  So, some of what we talk about may be already known to those that are immersed in it on a daily basis.... but through this hangout we hope to join Mark in expressing our belief in the platform and communicate the benefits it can bring to you - from a personal AND business perspective.+Carlos Fernandes President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0095

Christine & Mia5,356Join +Christine & Mia and our January guest host +Craig Fifield to interview special guest +Eli Davidson this week.Wednesday, January 15th11:30am PST/12:30pm MST/1:30pm CST/2:30pm ESTMore about our guest: +Eli Davidson is a nationally acclaimed female motivational keynote speaker, executive coach, award winning author, and corporate spokesperson.If playing small is no longer an option this show is JUST for YOU. The worst day of my life sparked $100K DAYS and is helping kids in Africa. It’s still hard to talk about it. I fell in love- in love so bad that going to Costco was like going to Paris. You get the picture. I closed my business to move to Hawaii to get married. Baby, my abs looked really good. On a Wednesday morning my fiancé woke up and announced that he didn't know if he wanted to be in a relationship with anyone. And then asked me to get on a plane and go back to LA…..that day. So, in February 2011 I didn’t know how I would be able to pay my rent. I was a mess to put it mildly. That diamond I had given back was a symbol. A diamond is the most condensed form of wealth on the planet. I had to find the diamond inside myself. What was my value and contribution and how could I help others?I am an entrepreneur so this took me on a journey of discovering the “diamond in my business “. By uncovering that value (and I will continue to be a student of this for the rest of my life) and creating those diamond systems I took my business from $4k a month to $100,000 days of sales and over $1million in sales in 2 years. Then I got to mentor other business owners to use those same systems. I guess it sounds self-serving, but that is not the intention. Women in particular have told me this story gives them the courage to stop playing small and go for it themselves. I am so excited to be on the show so I can give some tangible tools to help people now.I believe that small business can and must be a genuine engine of good works. What if every entrepreneur gave back to the planet? Now, helping business owners is a way to help make our world a better place. My life is pretty unrecognizable from a few years ago. I am still in awe. In my last event we just raised $25,000 to adopt a village and teach entrepreneurship in Africa. That is the point of all this. There is just so much good we can do together! This week's show is sponsored by:+CT Social CT Social, LLC is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida.

Yifat Cohen69,805METal is an exclusive gathering of and for dynamic entrepreneurs and change-makers in the media, entertainment and technology space. Their events range from talks with high-profile thinkers to connecting ideas and collaboration in our community.One time sneak-view into METal's private meetingsThis week, Tim Sanders, a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and former Yahoo! executive will be speaking about Creating the SaleThe soul of this belief, comes from that creatives of all types have a passion for what they are doing because they are chasing the truth and doing “what’s right” with their lives. This is the fuel for their inventive thinking. They don’t deduce their way to the close, they create new worlds that bring everyone together. Much like a marketing executive or a software engineer, they bring their creativity to work everyday and find new joy in selling.Many of us have one thing in common: We are creative types trapped inside a body that is focused on a professional career, at this week’s COED METal, Featured speaker Tim Sanders will show us how to become a creative sales genius.Tim will show how the “funnel system” of sales is outdated, primal at this point in it’s assumptions. Each time we look at sales as a numbers game, we reduce people to statistics. That’s bad for our brand, future relationships and our sales-karma.This talk is perfect for any professional who faces a complicated sales process or an entrepreneur who is up against a high wall of resistance in selling his or her ideaThis week’s featured speaker is Best Selling Author Tim Sanders. Tim’s business expertise and deep research capabilities make him indispensable to some of the biggest brands in the world. He speaks for strong business relationships, both internal and external. “Get them right,” he says, “and you’ll grow your business during good and bad times alike.” Tim’s relevant point of view and reputation as a people expert makes him one of the most in demand keynote speakers on the conference and convention circuit.ENTERTAINMENTEnjoy the music of Freddie Ravel and Jhameel during this event.Freddie Ravel has two infectious passions: creating purpose-driven music and applying its proven effectiveness in helping entrepreneurs, businesses and corporations thrive. As an internationally-acclaimed Producer, Pianist, Presenter and Founder of the transformational engine BUSINESS HARMONICS® - an award-winning peak performance program and methodology to enhance leadership, collaboration and time management - Freddie brings an extensive track record of star power success in innovation, performance and product creation.Battlefy started as a league management platform that catered to micro-organizers like college eSports clubs.

Jesse Wojdylo747,293Over the last few months I have noticed many people using Twitter to supplement Google+ or the other way around. I think there are some very effective strategies that can be used. This week we will get some of those strategies out on the table. All the information you need on Google Plus Chat is available here:http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-plus-chat-twitter-chat/In December of last year I really jumped on Twitter in a big way as I love the real time updates and the sports engagement. This has yet to come to Google+ so I spend my weekends chatting it up with college football and college basketball folks. While doing that I notice plenty of other awesome social media users that know and love the Google+ platform. This led me to these discussion questions:1. How long have you been active on Twitter?2. Do you use Twitter for pleasure or business? Or pain?3. Do you auto post to Twitter? Do you post Google+ Posts?4. How do you use Twitter to supplement Google+?5. Mention some active Twitter users that may enjoy Google+6. Do you want a Google Plus Chat on Christmas Eve?Please join us for #googlepluschat  on Twitter every Tuesday at 2:00 pm est. We will discuss if there will be a Christmas Eve event or not. Either way, join us this week!Google Plus Chat Twitter Chat2013-12-17 20:00:0055

Gary Matthews19,315Featured Engagers Forum!Social media at its best is a great conversation. The #FeaturedEngagersForum is a shared circle honoring people who, in my experience, practice and promote that art."Featured" means that if you’re in this circle, I'm inviting you to share a link to a favorite post of your own -- either recent or classic.Linking to a post is easy: Just click the small down-arrow at upper right. From the drop-down menu, choose “Link to post”: Copy the web address that pops up, and paste it into your comment.Please visit each other’s links. I certainly will! Please also visit each other’s profiles. I already have! All of you, in your own ways, have welcomed me to your engagement roundtable. My earnest hope is to return that favor by connecting you with others who will support you as you have supported me.This circle consists mostly of friends who interact with my non-circle posts in the form of plusses, comments, and reshares. Merely doing these things, however, won’t guarantee you a spot. Not doing them won't necessarily keep you out. To join this circle, you must join the conversation either by engaging directly, or by elevating the level of discourse in other ways. (For example, by sharing content that others might want to talk about.)==========================Some of my own recent posts:Make Your Own Animated GIFshttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/4DsG8Wtvs2UCircle Sharing on Ⓖⓞⓞⓖⓛⓔ  Ⓟⓛⓤⓢhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/bk8u3Rv8SzuIs Circle Sharing Really a Pyramid Scheme?Not if you manage shared circles my way! ≧◔◡◔≦ https://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/CV95E6zZGWrWhat Happens to Abandoned Facebook Photos?They become digital “unclaimed freight” -- and Facebook makes billionshttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/1UY88CnpfqbMy Favorite Superhero -- Lois Lane!https://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/gfpL8qx9cU6Introducing Full-Width Link ImagesGoogle Plus follows Facebook initiativehttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/aRNSNuoE22AGoogle Comments Unleashedby new full-width link formathttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/C4gvwkHDnGmUse ℱᗩﬡᙅᎩ ℱOﬡ☂ᔕ and ϟ℘ℯ¢ḯαł ℭнαґα¢☂εґṧhttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/8GXkDfzzzsTA Knoxville Springtime!https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/XoDn4t5QM6vWhy I'm Changing My Namefrom "Gary L.

Where Man Meets Nature

I snapped this yesterday at a church parking lot.  I have no idea why they bricked up the hollow of the tree like this (if anyone has seen this before or knows the purpose, feel free to mention it in the comments), but it's a fascinating marriage of man and nature.

Why is Google's Revenue Slowing?

The article below makes some valid points, especially about competition from Amazon, but I think their last point about long-term planning is the best point.

Here were my comments on a share of this by +Mike Bayes:

"The last point is actually the most relevant one though of course Amazon is a concern for part of their core monetization strategy. But the reason why the last point is the best is quite simple: Google deliberately chooses not to monetize a crap metric ton of web real estate they could monetize any time they wanted in order to preserve user experience. Could they monetize their homepage? Does a bear shit in the woods? What about monetizing non-commercial-intent queries? They could do it but choose not to as they prefer to reserve Search ads for places where they might actually be the best answer to your... more »

Google's Growth is at it's Lowest Point in Six Years

Why? According to this article it's because people are clicking on Google Search Ads less than expected.

1. Mobile is making web access from desktops increasingly less frequent. Shoppers are far more likely to click on a paid ad from the desktop and they prefer to connect to the internet via apps.

2. People are more comfortable using Amazon as their product and purchase search engine. Google makes its money from the searches people do before they make a purchase. If they go straight to Amazon there's no need for the ads. G

3. Google is behind in efforts to monetize streams in the same way Facebook and Twitter are.

Interesting food for thought.

Facebook? You're seeing ads before you sign in, ads on every page in every available space for it, and even ads when you sign out!"

This would be very nice, and I'm as ready as could be to embrace the peace.

But I reserve the right to respond, in reality, to iSheep and Fandroids when they take a big giant dump all over anyone who doesn't own the same platform or device as they do.  And that goes double for the Samsung Knights (seriously, guys, get over it).

OK, so I may get some crap for this one but I think it's a message we should all be spreading.

Have you ever wondered how and why Google ends up with so many redundant products?  Like their multiple messaging services or two different Operating systems?  This article by +Ron Amadeo makes the case that it is essentially just Google being Google: try different ways of doing things, essentially A/B testing, and never be afraid to disrupt yourself from within (which is almost always better than an external disruptor getting there first).

So, while Google will do their spring cleanings and promise to put more wood behind fewer arrows... don't be expecting everything to be consistent, unified, and smooth any time soon.

Google+ Adds "People You May Know" Posts

Call this one of those feature-adds I'll be waiting to see before I judge its value.  This could be a good thing, helping people on G+ find each other more easily, or it could prove extremely annoying, especially if there is no way to turn it off.

minor update:
a new suggestion method for friends you may know with there posts

   
how do you find it ?

Well, can't say they didn't meet him halfway.

Google messes with search results, give back Colbert half an inch // Stephen Colbert came out on his show earlier this week raging that Google has his height at 5'10" while he is actually 5'11" (see the follow details and clip at the +Search Engine Land http://selnd.com/1ofUXuO). In response to Colbert's threat of suing, Google is now giving back a result of "5'10.5" (1.79m -ish)", along with altered related results: Larry Page (who was mentioned by Colbert on the show) is showing up and also Jon Stewart's height has been replaced with "shorter" :) 

This is clearly a hack on Google's side as the Wikipedia entry still says 5'10" and IMDB and Wolfram Alpha are now corrected to 5'11". All in all, don't mess with people with direct access on Google's Knowledge Graph :)

OK. That is cool.

Good work, Apple. Can't wait to see the Android equivalent. (And this time, iFans get to mock us for being late to something. Fair is fair.)

Why didn't Apple announced their Apple SIM at the event?

Apple rolled out -- but did not announce -- a new SIM card called Apple SIM. 

According to a statement buried at the bottom of one of its iPad web pages, the Apple SIM gives users the "flexibility to choose from a variety of short term plans." They're referring, of course, to carrier plans. In other words, a single SIM can be used on AT&T or Sprint, and the choice can be made by the user by simply selecting the carrier from a dialog box. 

The new Apple SIM will come pre-installed on all future Wi-Fi + Cellular versions of the iPad.

Apparently nobody can't point things out that are wrong with the Android preview.........you know because "is still beta" and "the final version won't ship with that" so here's what you fuckers all want

LOOK RECENTS!!!!! hahaha

You know what's hypocritical that if it was Apple having issues with a release (preview or not) you guys would be all over it! OH NOOOO #BendGate  and this and that

BUT since is Google, they get a pass because "Oh, nobody uses the stock browser anyways" and other excuses.....

Apple Pulls Fitbit, and We All Know Why...

Apple is yanking Fitbit devices from the shelves of their retail stores and no longer featuring their app.  Why the sudden turnabout?

It appears to be a straightforward case of Fitbit making the wise business decision not to embrace HealthKit yet, as it is buggy and underperforming compared to their own service.

While it's understandable that Apple wants Fitbit using HealthKit, the smart thing would have been to allow them to hold off and work with them to fix the issues.  Fitbit being a market leader in this area, one in which Apple is only just dipping its toes, should have given them every reason to heed their experience.

It's been an... interesting week on the Plus, and as usual +Mick Sharpe has our weekly round-up of some of the most interesting trends and his own observations.

Enjoy!

#PlusOnly  

Playing nice

I’m sure you will have noticed some of the tension creeping into the stream over the last few weeks. It’s inevitable in any environment that there will be periods such as this as the population grows, evolves and finds a new equilibrium...until the next wave of change. I’m pleased to see that many of those discussions have reached an amicable conclusion and also inspired some very thoughtful posts.

It’s perhaps also very timely that the subject of the latest +Network Round Table Small Biz Happy Hour HOA was How To Use Humility in Small Business (http://goo.gl/dUy6nY) +DENNIS N. DUCE, +David Amerland and +Teodora Petkova share some very interesting ideas about finding commonalities in this global dynamic environment. For me this thought from David is one that we should all embrace  everyone matters or no one does and we should also take note of Teodora’s final thought Humility is the power to surrender to change and to embrace and trust others

This HOA was also an inspiration for +Gina Fiedel’s A Case For Humility… In Social Media & Business (http://goo.gl/qeDd9n) Gina does an excellent job in exploring the power of humility, being receptive to the ideas of others and constantly re-evaluating your own knowledge. It’s posts and HOAs like these that really highlight the value of G+ I know I’m in the right place! Also well worth a read through the comments on Gina’s post too.

And back to the #infotainment

I’m always interested in listening to +Sarah Hill so I was glued to the screen for this week’s +The Mia Connect Power Chat (http://goo.gl/X1OicU) If you haven’t yet discovered Sarah and +Veterans United then please do take the time to watch this. Sarah really gets the power behind the technology available today and her thoughts on #HumanMedia and #SeeCommerce make complete sense. Take advantage of your own broadcast tower. Do look out for Sarah’s DIY treadmill desk towards the end of the show - I may have to give that idea a try! As usual +Mia Voss has put together the #BatCrapCrazy #timestamp post for the time-challenged - aren’t we all? (http://goo.gl/F34dNG)

Mia was centre stage for the follow up Ammonize (http://goo.gl/KpeSUG) and I have to say it was a most entertaining and informative session. +Ammon Johns and +Lee Rickler were joined by three of my favourite Plussers +Scott Scowcroft, +Jessica Dewell and +Mani Saint-Victor. The breadth of experience and the individual perspectives of the panel really put this discussion in a field of its own. Whether you’re looking to develop your personal brand or not you’ll find this is worth your time. And the context for the discussion - the live consultation HOA can be found here (http://goo.gl/Mc3tgl)

There was a lot of good advice in the latest The Roadmap To Entrepreneurial Marketing HOA The Do's & Don't-Even-Think-About-It's of Websites (http://goo.gl/ugBwCF) +Carmen Rojas and +Stephanie Sims talked with +Ammon Johns about getting the most from your website. Ammon really does hammer home the real value of your website. It’s your sales team, shop front, media team and customer support that works for 24 hours a day, every day of the year. There are a good few website myths dispelled in this show too. I really need to put this in front of all my customers, or rather prospective customers, as it always makes a difference to have the external validation / reinforcement when discussing their ideas and offering advice. Great job to all involved..

Common sense was also flowing in +Jeff Sieh’s The Manly Pinterest Tips Show featuring special guest +Ileane Smith (http://goo.gl/loylwN) Ileane shares her thoughts about Driving Traffic With Pinterest looking at the techniques she employs and the tools she finds useful. I really enjoyed Ileane’s relaxed delivery in the show, she has a gift of taking the trepidation out of using technology. Have a listen and lift your use of Pinterest to the next level.

More for the small business

Another very useful show from the +RightStart Websites team: Relationships: The Key to the Castle For Small Business Marketing (http://goo.gl/6PYftK) +John Moore and +Marilyn Moore invited +Wade Harman to share his thoughts on the power of relationships for the small business. Marilyn, John and Wade did an excellent job of making the information clear and accessible. The tip for social listening is something that I always recommend for a small business. Find the customers’ problems and show them the solutions whether it’s something you provide or not - they will remember how helpful you are. That perception of your business is priceless.

Another intriguing +Fearlessly Questioning this week with +Joey Giangola and +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales Fearlessly Questioning Your Proximity (http://goo.gl/6eLxqK) and one which provides some insight as to why online engagement can sometimes go wrong. Also interesting about the accelerated trust building when meeting face to face - yes it is very much worthwhile if at all possible. Wrapping up with a great question from +Nicholas Cardot this is well worth watching and remembering the next time you feel your temperature rise.

Thinkers corner

+todd l lebeauc gives us plenty of food for thought in his epic apples (http://goo.gl/oYwHHQ) Sharing some of his journey and his reflections of recent interactions with others here Todd acknowledges the problems that arise when we feel that our words are falling on deaf ears and when we too fail to listen carefully to others. I took great comfort when Todd states that he has grown from the experiences of the last few weeks and it would appear the same for others commenting on the post. Do take the time to read this as I’m sure it will make you think about your own interactions here and perhaps be a little more receptive when challenged and a little less accusatory when challenging. It can only be a good thing.

+Bruce Marko gives his own unique perspective on some of the heated discussions around Thought Leadership in Thoughts Adrift (http://goo.gl/zGVouF) Bruce always manages to distil the essence of any situation very eloquently, summed up by this line: We waste a great deal of collective intellect and energy which could be put to many constructive uses instead of haggling over the intention of a label or defending our identity from the slings and arrows of outrageous ego. ‘Nuff said!

And finally…

It seems I can always rely on +Eli Fennell to surface something amusing and this had me giggling right the way through. If Apps Were Superheroes (http://goo.gl/62QpRD) takes a punt at Social Media in its many guises. Guess who saves the day!


Have a great weekend wherever you are

Red-Light Cameras CANNOT Be Outsourced to Private Companies in Florida

The 4th District Court of Appeal, ruling on the case of a red-light camera citation in Florida, has ruled that the state cannot enforce citations issued to drivers from most (nearly all) of these cameras.

Why?  Simple: because the company that makes most of these cameras also decides who to issue citations to, issues the citations, and notifies courts of the citation.

The problem is that Florida law states that, "[O]nly law enforcement officers and traffic enforcement officers have the legal authority to issue citations for traffic infractions..."

In essence, the corporations behind the cameras were also acting with police authorities they aren't entitled to exercise.  This means that virtually anyone ticketed by one of these cameras can have their citation thrown outn... more »

Red-Light Cameras CANNOT Be Outsourced to Private Companies in Florida

The 4th District Court of Appeal, ruling on the case of a red-light camera citation in Florida, has ruled that the state cannot enforce citations issued to drivers from most (nearly all) of these cameras.

The problem is that Florida law states that, "[O]nly law enforcement officers and traffic enforcement officers have the legal authority to issue citations for traffic infractions..."

In essence, the corporations behind the cameras were also acting with police authorities they aren't entitled to exercise.  This means that virtually anyone ticketed by one of these cameras can have their citation thrown out now.

It also means that, at the very least, it will be necessary to seriously restructure the role the corporation in question, American Traffic Solutions, plays.  They should, in theory, only be able to function as vendors for the cameras themselves, with law enforcement still required to determine who to cite and to issue said citations.

While I am generally a supporter of red-light cameras, this was a clear case of law enforcement outsourcing their legal responsibilities to a private corporation with no such authority.  As such, I applaud this decision, and hope that in the future law enforcement agencies will consider these issues before it comes to a legal battle they will surely lose.

For me to add anything to this would be wasted words, except to say that it reminds me of when I once ran into an old grade school teacher of mine, and immediately thanked her for all she taught me and apologized for all the problems I had ever caused in her class...

...only to learn that it was she, indeed, who felt the failure and felt she had learned more from dealing with me than anyone else she ever taught.

Life and learning are funny things that way.

(long read )

Prelude
Spring, 1988. I will never forget the day, but the date still eludes me without looking back at paperwork. Sandstone Mountain Pass, 12 miles east of Beckley, West Virginia. Now a full 15 months out of the Army, I found myself for hitting a milestone. Three Hundred Sixty Six days of driving semi, bound for Norfolk (VA) with a reefer full (well over 76K lbs total vehicle weight) of Michelina's Frozen Pasta products, headed down a 5 mile, 7% grade. “No worries,” I recall thinking to myself, as I just spent 4+ hours at a DOT Inspection site, having my truck examined while I slept. “All good to go.”

Almost 3 miles in, things were not good. Being equipped only with air brakes (no engine braking/”Jake brake”), I had already downshifted to 2nd gear to slow my truck, and my brakes were giving sign of fading still. Buzzing. I will never forget it. And flashing warning lights, as my air reserve was gone. Two J.B. Hunt trucks were in front of me, so any thoughts of passing them and “free-wheeling it” the rest of the way passed as I looked at either hitting one to slow my descent, or taking the upcoming run-away ramp.

Adrenalin filled me, I think, or a simple awareness that life itself was suddenly in slo-mo. Either way, I had been here before, spending years jumping from aircraft at varied speeds and heights. What I remember next was setting my steering wheels as I entered the run-away ramp, looking back through my rear view mirrors and seeing smoke which was filling my cab. Then turning my head forward as everything stopped - but me, as my face met the windshield and I and my seat kept moving forward and on through.

The next 10 minutes, a blur. Fire extinguisher in hand spraying a melting tire that had heated from a “failed, cammed-over” set of brakes. The next morning laying on a gurney, being loaded on a medical flight to the Mayo Clinic, where the next 17 months would lapse by.

Seventeen months. Doctors. Tests. Scans. Learning to walk again; re-educating my malfunctioning limbs to function when little to no feeling was offered to guide me. And I wrote. About pain, keeping a diligent log for the doctors and therapists, and then…. Writing more. Discovering the voice I had in me. The drive and the will to get up the next day, when my old service revolver would have been an easy alternative. The conflicts become more. They gave me reason and cause to overcome challenges.

Stepping stones came, when returning to my old profession of driving would never come to pass. Out of sheer boredom I went on to college, as merely walking again would not suffice. A year of generalities got old quick, and in my second year, still undeclared I had to take Poetry as the only available option to meet the dull requirements. I hated poetry. Flowery words that made no sense. Nonsense. I was ready to move on, when my professor saw the struggle of I as a non-trad student reached down a hand. He brought me to rap, and hip-hop, without the beats. Aiding me patiently as I began to feel the words absent of tone. The world became new. Shortly thereafter, he became my confidant, as I was still undeclared. Sitting in a bar at closing time, as I was cramming for a test, we spoke about words, and about languages. And about changes on the horizon.

He said I had a uniqueness, but still very ruff. A potential to look - if I afforded myself to allow others near. Survivability was still my mantra, and a lone one, whereas no one could suffer changes unexpected. It was during that evening and on the next day - I set forward a path. Dual tracking English and Computer Sciences as my declared majors. They were both languages, and words, and meanings unique to themselves - and yet, universal; both requiring cooperation and collaboration intermingled with time to reflect.

“A true leader is a person whose influence inspires people to do what is expected of them to do.” - Israelmore Ayivor

Present Day
Two decades and more have now passed and I have had a path which led to teaching, to writing code, to experimenting. And here I sit back in school once again. +Christine DeGraff asked recently, as part of a comment stream, “...can we also agree that we aren't in middle school? Should the squeaky wheel or whiny child be constantly given the amount of attention they crave or at some point should we just say "sit down and shut up or get out?"

Yep; back in school. Yet Christine is someone who I have come to respect. In her own manner, she dances about to music streams, desires the welcome of community, all while challenging those around her - and accepts challenges that come her way.

+David Kutcher is another I have come to see as a fellow student. A strong, old soul voice, analytic; with the passions of a deep philosopher’s heart. Educated, and bouncing between humility, and the daring escapades of challenging others, while desiring the same in return.

+Grizwald Grim (not his real name) challenged me one day in the last year. While our paths seldom cross with anymore, this young upstart afforded me a lesson about ego, I try to remember (and fail at each day ). I was standing on my virtual soapbox, hands firmly gripping the podium of a debate. He reminded me that conversation was not a win-loss, then knocked my podium on its side, welcoming me to join him in coffee, tea, or soda at a now repurposed coffee table. My ego was bent, and slightly bruised by such brash attitude…. He exposed my own frailty - and my failure would be in not accepting his invitation. A daring, and dangerous move…, for a teacher “inspiring one to do what is expected of them to do.”

+Mark Traphagen was yet another I met virtually, and a shared common interest in publishing via Flipboard, while he was still with Virante, Inc. We had some interactions back and forth, and he moved on, as many know, to new challenges with +Stone Temple Consulting. Over the course of almost a year, I saw many things with Mark, and remained impressed with what I always felt was him being a gentlemen’s gentelman who had seen many challenges, faced them, and was on a continuing path to affect changes by his innate ability to test digital social environments, fueled only by a deeper passion to learn and assist others.

Yet the interactions between Mark and I became increasingly tense. He seemed to change, and these changes I was witnessing were emblematic of how I myself was evolving, and the shiny and new gloss of social networking was dulling fast. Tonality was shifting - for both of us. I was not comfortable with what I saw in him, a man I respected, and I was becoming more conflicted with my own changes.

Semantically conceptual ideologies were becoming battlefields. Minefields were being navigated around topics such as Authenticity and perilously complicated by crowd-sourced renditions of Leadership. And all were triggers; dopamine enablers pushing me to challenge my own cognitions, motivations, attention and intentions. Confronting my own willingness to learn.

A Disrupted Class. Thats what I likened recent experiences to. Others as well as myself, looking to add the depth of definition of how we all viewed, interpreted, and acted upon our individual ideals of influence and leading, or being inspired by those we held as leaders - and the motivations that came alongside.

Due to my own conflicts, I tenuously entered what I considered to be a virtual classroom. I was one among a growing class of students, and types of students. The gifted. The autistic. The challenging "hellion" throwing spitballs. The silent ones watching with an attentive glaze. All of us there with our own standards of open mindedness, differing learning curves, and abilities to comprehend another and each other.

As with almost any class, came the quabbles. The gifted go toe to toe with the less so, and the intrusive or abrasive enter the fray. Suddenly, the more modest ones turns the extinguisher hanging on the wall and directs it meley, and in doing so - also entered the fight. I was back in school once more. I had voluntarily signed up for the course, but had myself become one of the annoying noises and disturbances. I certainly felt like my perceptions and challenges posed to others had validation; but I was closing myself off to others with my stylized rhetoric, and found myself being dismissed by others who I had confronted. Indeed, a classroom of emboldened “tweenagers”, of which I was one. I felt few were listening to my voice, and I was closing my ears as well. It was time to leave, and I was holding Mark responsible for the calamity that had transpired.

I later stopped by the auditorium I have left, peeking through the doorway, and watched another classmate reflecting upon “...what derailed [the] discussion was simply the use of a personal example where a neutral one might have answered the same points without the feel of it being accusatory.”

“You cease to be a leader when you manipulate with your egos instead of convincing by your inspirations.” - Israelmore Ayivor

Epilogue
My critics can make me strong, my fears can make me bold, my haters make me wise, and those who oppose make me active. My obstacles make me passionate, my losses bring wealth unseen. And my ego? It provides a barrier to the unseen influence and inspirations that bring about peace.

Like many events in my life, I get “wake up calls”, and “b@tch slaps upside the head". These events sooner or later have an impact that I seldom see coming, and yet bring about profound changes. I have been privately reminded by friends that my own voice is an odd mix of satirical ruffian, and overly educated academic. Over-thinking, over-analyzing, and overly demanding in semantic definition.

Like the events of my past, the points of impact, whether they be running uncontrollably through a windshield, or quiet words from one who would become a lifelong mentor in the making; or the combative fight one just left in a virtual class. All have lingering effects. Impressions. Realizations. Those people and events have an irony presenting in their own time, often becoming influential moments, and providing mentorship seldom known to others.

So I ask you, as I ask myself, to each consider these things. How do you see semantics? Are you striving for semantic dreams of fortune and fame that will follow? Or are you living a semantic life to the best of your ability? Are you focussing on the on the shiny apple, or on the apple that seems rotting before your eyes? I had to ask myself this over the last few days, and it was an effort to face who I was, who I was allowing myself to be, and who I wanted to be. Realization once again, that even the apple left on the teachers desk, turning brown, with a slimy mold - it still had seeds. Seeds that could be replanted, and yield “better fruit”.  And that fruit, along with other apples, oranges, bananas and more - would indeed produce a fruit stand worthy of a visit.

While I still pop in from time to time, I think on events and venues now not so much as a classroom, although those perceptions still linger. But upon the fruit stand…, and it being one I will return to again.

#thinkingoutloud  

[Footnote: +Mark Traphagen, I did make note of your apology late last night, and humbly offer the same, asking for your forgiveness. It was indeed my err to hold you accountable for the actions of others as well as for the challenges exposed in myself. While I Hold a high regard for your seemingly tireless efforts, I hope that we can indeed become -co-operative students, standing in front of the fruit stand, and meekly accept that influence is something that comes; sometimes in quite times, and sometimes in a pile up when a loud "SHUT UP"..., is followed by thank you. ]

Web. 15 Oct. 2014. <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/semantic>___For me to add anything to this would be wasted words, except to say that it reminds me of when I once ran into an old grade school teacher of mine, and immediately thanked her for all she taught me and apologized for all the problems I had ever caused in her class...

...only to learn that it was she, indeed, who felt the failure and felt she had learned more from dealing with me than anyone else she ever taught.

Life and learning are funny things that way.

Real people make up my "fan base".

But I don't call them that, because they're real people. So they're just folks I actually like.

Recent times have brought back to me why the real G+ peeps have always topped my list.

Give me your selfie queen, your new mom posting pics of the baby every hour, your foodporn artist, your struggling college student yearning to be free of the drama of friends and family on other social networks (hint hint +Lindsay Nicole; and if anyone gives her grief after this, you'll answer to me).

Give me the real, every day, no-plausible-business-reason-to-be-here Plusser.

I'll take that over 5 tips to optimize for Twitter any day of the week.

New Easy +Post Ads Option

+Google+ is now making it even easier to use +Post Ads with an easy drop-down-menu option to Promote Posts.  Given Facebook's version of "Promoted Posts" this might give you the creeps, but remember these ads do not show on Google+ (the post itself does, of course, but gets no special boost in the Stream or elsewhere), but rather across the Google Display Ads Network.

In addition, Google is offering some examples of successful +Post Ads campaigns for those who may be unsure how they can use this new AdWords format.

The key appears to be, perhaps not surprisingly, that they need to be highly engaging.  If you just want to drive some website traffic or quick conversions, this new format may not be ideal for you (yet).  Established brands, for example, are using it to solicit fan engagement, while some other brands are using it to buildeng... more »

The latest on +Post ads: new brand examples & product updates 
Earlier this year we launched +Post ads, an efficient way to extend the reach of your social assets to a broader audience across the web. I would like to share some of the latest examples of how brands around the world are using +Post ads and a new update to the ad format.
  
+BMW has been running a global campaign ( #bmwstories ) using +Post ads to invite their fans and owners around the world to share their individual experiences with BMW across various social channels. Sebastian Schwiening of BMW’s web marketing team states: “We've invested in producing branded content for this campaign for social. We can use the ‘promote my latest post’ feature in AdWords to amplify our Google+ content across the Google Display Network. This was a fast and efficient way for us to drive consideration for BMW with auto enthusiasts and BMW fans across Google's publisher network.”  

Brands can also take a Hangout On Air broadcast and stream it live and on-demand across the web through +Post ads. We’ve published two new full Hangout case studies that you can download below: 
- HSBC Brasil (+HSBC Commercial Banking) produced a year-long series of Hangouts On Air that brought together business leaders to discuss the top economic opportunities in Brazil. They promoted these to a nation-wide audience by streaming each HOA live through +Post ads across the web, driving nearly 3000 hours of watch time and 13,000 new subscribers to their YouTube channel. Download the case study here: http://goo.gl/nNI9d4.

- +Luxola, a Southeast Asian beauty e-commerce site ran the region’s first shoppable Hangout On Air, where a premium skincare line was sold live on the broadcast. When promoted via +Post ads, online viewers could shop and ask questions of the hosts right from the live +Post ad. The team saw a 45% rise in unique visitors to Luxola.com following the campaign. Read more here: http://goo.gl/i0aw5s 

For a refresher on how Hangouts On Air in +Post ads work, check out this post: http://goo.gl/66T3Mm  

Finally, we are rolling out a new, easy way to set up +Post ads campaigns, directly from Google+. On the dropdown menu in your post, clicking Promote this post will take you to a pre-filled +Post ad campaign creation page in AdWords (see the screenshots attached to this post). You can create the campaign from there, or if someone else on your team manages digital media buying, you can send them the instructions and AdWords link.  This will be rolling out over the course of the next few weeks. To get started using +Post ads, all you need is a verified Google+ page with over 1,000 followers. ___New Easy +Post Ads Option

I would say, "So can we please stop with the Ghost Town, Google-needs-to-kill-this project stuff?  Because they're clearly enjoying sufficient success with this new format to justify the investment."  But I know that would be a waste of breath.  Too much money to be made in clickbait articles.

Why ISIS Aren't Terrorists, and That Makes Them Even Scarier

This post is a bit old but still entirely relevant.

I'm not inclined towards Chicken Little doom saying about geopolitical conflict. ISIS, however, generally concerns me whether or not they're a direct threat to us.

No one has ever explained why they ultimately concern me as well as +Yonatan Zunger did in this post.

The media calls ISIS a terrorist organization, yet we now hear of them bringing tanks to bear in the Syria-Turkey border regions. Tanks. A terrorist might steal a tank, if they can, and use it as a weapon of terror, but Al Qaeda however dangerous has never brought that kind of straight military might to bear.

That is because, although many of their actions may be considered terroristic, they are in fact much more like an army, with a command structure and unified reporting of... more »

ISIS (the group which is currently conquering much of Iraq) recently published their annual report for 2013. You might be surprised to think of them publishing a glossy annual report, but it's quite a fascinating document, and here the Institute for the Study of War gives a fairly detailed analysis of it. (The full report is at http://www.understandingwar.org/sites/default/files/ISWBackgrounder_ISIS_Annual_Reports_0.pdf)

While there are many details in this, the thing which most stands out is the structure of the report itself. ISIS has partitioned its operating theatre into several states, which are both military and governance divisions. The commanders within these states appear to coordinate regularly with central command, and report in a uniform way so that clear statistics can be obtained. Tactics differ significantly between regions and can be seen changing from year to year, indicating active responsiveness to different local requirements. 

What's important about this is that this is the way that real armies work. They have robust central command and control, organization, and planning; they appear to be highly metrics-driven, and able to not only coordinate execution and logistics, but also to impose a relatively uniform system of governance via layers of control. 

I think this highlights the extent to which the comparison of ISIS to al-Qaeda is flawed. al-Qaeda provided central funding and training, and occasionally worked to orchestrate attacks, but never had anything resembling central command and control; rather, each local al-Qaeda franchise was basically an independent organization, owing allegiance to central ideas (and getting some funding from a central source) but ultimately deciding what they wanted to do. Al-Qaeda is a prototypical loose network. ISIS, on the other hand, looks like an actual army which is invading places, concerned with its areas of control and its boundaries of operation. In this it's more similar to Hezbollah, which has acted as a sort of "shadow government" in Lebanon for decades, but unlike Hezbollah ISIS is quite explicitly concerned with conquest of land and setting up formal governance.

There was a suggestion a few weeks ago, when Mosul fell to ISIS, that ISIS was somehow now "the richest terrorist organization in the world." I think that this analysis is profoundly flawed, because ISIS has very little in common with terrorist organizations as we normally think of them. They aren't interested in suicide bombings or hijackings of distant targets; they use suicide bombings as ways to soften up targets prior to their land forces invading, as a type of guerrilla advance force. 

That said, you shouldn't mistake them for nice guys simply because they aren't focused on blowing up aircraft. Among the statistics they report on is "rafidha expelled," that being a rude term for Shi'ites; that is, ISIS is engaging in a deliberate policy of ethnic cleansing.[1] 

However, I think that this analysis is very interesting, and helps shed a great deal of light on who ISIS is. They are, as their name indicates, quite focused on founding an Islamic state -- and by all indications, they're actually competent at this. This is much more similar to a traditional adversary (or a traditional army) than to a terror group.


[1] To clarify terms: genocide is about killing all the members of a particular group, while ethnic cleansing is about removing anyone who isn't of a particular group from a particular area. So if city 1 is inhabited by groups A, B, and C, and city 2 is inhabited by B, then if A engages in genocide against B, they will want to kill the B's in both cities, but ignore the C's; whereas if they want to engage in ethnic cleansing of city 1, they will want to kill or expel the B's and C's from city 1, but not care about city 2. (At least, for the moment) This is the sort of technical detail that you hope never to have to care about.

Of course, what almost invariably happens is that the people engaging in genocide start to figure, "well, while we're at it, we should get rid of these C's, too," and the ones engaged in ethnic cleansing seem to find the boundaries of the areas they're trying to "protect" somehow growing all the time, so as time goes by they all seem to turn into Daleks. Ah, people. ___Why ISIS Aren't Terrorists, and That Makes Them Even Scarier

A terrorist might steal a tank, if they can, and use it as a weapon of terror, but Al Qaeda however dangerous has never brought that kind of straight military might to bear.

That is because, although many of their actions may be considered terroristic, they are in fact much more like an army, with a command structure and unified reporting of tactics and results, allowing them like any real army to adapt their strategy to what proves effective in different theaters and campaigns of battle. It even allows them to develop unified campaigns for things like social media.

It may truly be the most dangerous militant group in the world today, precisely because they are militant in the classic sense: soldiers. Soldiers of an army, an army that functions not unlike the armies of any nation, albeit of course with quite savage brutality.

This is undoubtedly part of why they are so hated as to even unite the U.S. with some our previously greatest rivals. When Iran is like, "Don't worry American Pig Dogs, we got your back," you know they are truly scary.

While I don't know the solution and am not sure another ground war in the Middle East is it, I think we need to understand this is not Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda is a bunch of fundamentalists more-or-less training and bankrolling terrorism. They are interested in the objective of all terrorists: to scare you.

ISIS, while certainly terroristic in some regards, is not interested in wearing down perceived occupying or oppressing forces through fear and uncertainty: their goal is to conquer.
