Reinventors Network778,409Talk about a fundamental Reinvention! The arrival of Artificial Intelligence could reinvent what it is to be human, to be employed. As we shift many kinds of work, even knowledge work, to machines, we might ultimately need to rethink economic distribution and the social compact among citizens. Join +Kevin Kelly , the founding executive editor of Wired magazine, as we focus this roundtable on this important initial question: What is the early path of commercialization for Artificial Intelligence? In other words, what will be AI’s first killer apps? This will be where regular people initally encounter AI. Let’s get a handle on this powerful enabling technology now.We have a great group of participants taking part in this discussion: +George Dyson , Non-fiction author and historian of technology+Doug Lenat , CEO of Cycorp+Krisztina Holly , Tech entrepreneur, engineer, innovator+Nova Spivack , CEO of Bottlenose+Wayne Radinsky , Resident Futurist at Boulder Future Salon+Amir Behbehani , Founder of Serial MetricsSee more at: http://reinventors.net/roundtables/reinvent-artificial-intelligence/Reinvent Artificial Intelligence with Kevin Kelly2014-04-30 20:00:00222G+
Business Rockstars3,548 We are pleased to host +DR. MICHIO KAKU, Physicist/Futurist  in a discussion about the human brain and it's possibilities.We are taking your questionsSubmit your questions in the comments for a chance to have +Ken Rutkowski relate them to Dr. Michio Kaku in the Hangout! The New York Times best-selling author of PHYSICS OF THE IMPOSSIBLE, PHYSICS OF THE FUTURE and HYPERSPACE tackles the most fascinating and complex object in the known universe: the human brain.         For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist.  THE FUTURE OF THE MIND gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics.  One day we might have a "smart pill" that can enhance our cognition; be able to upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a "brain-net"; control computers and robots with our mind; push the very limits of immortality; and perhaps even send our consciousness across the universe.           Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about "consciousness" and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.  With Dr. Kaku's deep understanding of modern science and keen eye for future developments, THE FUTURE OF THE MIND is a scientific tour de force - an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience.------------#physics   #michiokaku   #hangoutsonair   #businessrockstars   #thefuturSOON: "Add 120+ IQ Points & Time Travel!"2014-03-22 00:00:0063G+
Yifat Cohen66,479Why does the ex-head of American Express Chairman’s Innovation Fund think our future is in “producerism,” not consumerism? What does it even mean?!?This Hangout is public so feel free to share and invite your friends.Using frameworks +Steve Faktor developed such as the 4C’s of Innovation™ - Creativity, Capabilities, Culture, and Context - and the Creativity Cube™, Mr. Faktor deconstructs the current economic environment to reveal innovation opportunities and growth sectors – health and education in particular. Although his initial scenario suggests doom and gloom for the U.S. and other markets, the future he envisions is ripe with opportunity.SO - How do You Get Innovation Right?Well, if we're lucky (and we usually are), Steve will dive into his latest book Econovation and share with us a future we've taken for granted. It empowers readers to think big, dream big, and conquer economic conditions that will paralyze others. WE WILL TOUCH ON HOW TOCapitalize on a market that will go from making nothing to making everything . . . for China.Use psychological pricing and some crafty tricks from Google to reduce reliance on tapped-out consumers.Sell to consumers whose new identities will be based on what they create, not what they buy, click or super-size.Seduce a desperate government to finance your business, then feed you pancakes in the morning.Motivate tomorrow’s employees with social currency instead of the green, depreciating kind.Upgrade your business and your kids with a little help from Mormons and kindergartners with hacksaws.WHO IS STEVEN?Developing B2B startups at +ideafaktory  and corporate speaking about emerging producerism opportunities that I wrote about in my book +Econovation and Forbes column. -------------------#hangoutsonair   #americanexpress   #econovation   #interview   #entrepreneur   #entrepreneurship   How Global Trends Will Shape the Future of Innovation.2013-01-17 18:00:0046G+
Yifat Cohen66,479Google+ changes the Truth about social media marketing.This is a public Hangout, feel free to share and inviteHave you noticed the date? Today the world is ending. And it's a wonderful, wonderful thing.Everything you know, or think you know, about online marketing, social media, engagement and where's the money is online - is no longer true.IN THIS HANGOUTS WE ARE GOING TO MAKE SOME TRULY CONTROVERSIAL CLAIMS+Alex Mandossian is going to show you why you should pay attention to Google+ now, if you want to make money online. He'll show you why the money is no longer in the listHow the conversation have moved from one-to-many to many-to-manyHow you can broadcast your Hangouts simultaneously on hundreds of sitesAnd most of all - how to position yourself in front of this trend that is going to turn the social media world upside down.BUT WHO IS ALEX MANDOSSIAN TO BE CLAIMING THIS?His colleagues and students acknowledge him as the Warren Buffet of the Internet because of his unique ability to teach his students how to make BIG money with very little risk. Alex has generated $243 million in sales and profits for his small business students, clients and joint venture partners since 1993.  Many of the business strategies you'll learn today transformed his annual income in 2001 to be a monthly income in 2003; and eventually daily income by 2006.These marketing principles helped him grow his student data base from 200 people to 20,000 during his first 2 years in business ... and to over 200,000 during the following 3 years.He has engaged with best-selling authors such as Jack Canfield, +Ken Blanchard  +Harvey Mackay and +Tim Ferriss (4-Hr Work Wk)Business leaders such as Donald Trump, Vic Conant of Nightingale Conant and Ivan Misner, CEO of Business Network International, and celebs such as Larry King and Mohammad Ali to name a few.As a family-centered entrepreneur who works from home, his goal is to become the world’s 1st "work-at-home" billionaire, not just in Net Worth, but by creating 1,000 other Internet millionaires …The money is no longer in the list, so where is it?2012-12-20 18:00:0059G+
Yifat Cohen66,479How the social revolution is changing the way we do business.We all keep hearing about how important it is to engage and build relationships - what does it really mean, and what tools are out there to help us master it?When +Gideon Rosenblatt spoke at DreamForce he saw a vision for a future of business information systems that is entirely based on relationships.ENGAGE OR DIE.In this Hangout On Air, we'll dive into the topic of engagement with +Gideon Rosenblatt   as he explains what he calls "engagement leverage." This framework bridges the kind of internal engagement you need with employees with the external engagement you need with customers, suppliers, partners and other external stakeholders. It's a simple, yet surprisingly powerful way for thinking about the way your organization gets work done. Gideon writes at Alchemy of Change about helping companies bring purpose and technology together into a more powerful source of competitive advantage. Gideon just came back from leading a panel on engagement at Salesforce's Dreamforce Conference (now the biggest tech conference in the world) and so in addition to talking with us about the engagement leverage model, he'll also share some of what he saw at Dreamforce.

JL's Circles11,195The Rabbit Herd (v.1)This is the first of the Rabbit Herd circle shares. It is a very eclectic collection of people and pages. There is no theme, other than the name, behind the people/ pages in this first circle.Why "Rabbit Herd"? My last name means "rabbit" in French and a "herd" is a group of rabbits.As this is the first Rabbit Herd circle share no one is required to do anything. However, it would be great if you:1) Add this page along with my main account (+Jeffrey Lapin ) to your circles.2) +1 this circle.3) Publicly share this circle.4) Leave a comment on this post especially if you have done one of the 3 items above.Please share the Rabbit Herd from this original post.=========================================================I do not wish to offend anyone here on G+, so if you would like to be removed from my shared circles, please send me a message and I will not include you in future circles. Being included in a circle share only affects you as you will receive notifications if people circle you. You are under no obligation to share the circle, add this circle to your own or circle anyone back that circles you.=========================================================#circleshare #sharingcircles #rabbitherd #rabbitherdcircleshare 2014-06-06 00:15:36442202721CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432632958CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna35,467Learning with friendsCircle of thanksIt is time for me to apply for my small business all what I've learned here in recent months.By sharing this circle, I want to thank those with whom I have gained a better knowledge of best practices of the Internet and information, particularly about G+ which represents now (and tomorrow) an enormous part of the Web dynamics.I named this circle "Learning with friends" because it sums up for me a big part of that is Google+.1- Learning, because these people have given me valuable assistance by sharing their knowledge and their information and they have convinced me by their active presence of the importance of spending time on G+, of learn more and always consider the long term.2- Friends, because they do it with generosity, not against party, in a spirit of exchange and mutual enrichment, as friends do.The common vector is that I always read their posts carefully.I communicate regularly with some, I just "plus" with others (often because my bad english keeps me better participate) to mark my interest and I discovered regularly (often in comments) new people who all publish / share high quality stuff.Thank you +martin shervington, +Denis Labelle, +Dustin W.

Taking a Social Media Break

I'm not sure why, but over the last month or so, my enthusiasm for social media has been flagging. My posting here, on my favorite social network, has been spotty, as has been my commenting and interactions on the posts of my favorite people here. My heart's just not been in it. 

So, rather than fight it, I've decided to take a bit of a social media break. I'll still check in periodically to tend to the Good Business community, and I may make a peep here or there, but if you're wondering why I'm quieter than usual, well, this is why. 

I'm not sure how long this break will last, but I hope to come back, fully refreshed and eager to re-engage. In the meantime, I'm sending my best to all of you. Take good care of everyone while I'm away. :-)

Jibo: A social, family robot that uses emotional intelligence

Watch this video, and you'll see why folks like Cynthia Breazeal and  +Guy Hoffman are focusing on why emotional intelligence is important to the future of robotics. 

This particular robot, Jibo, is not yet available. It's creator has launched a Indigogo campaign to assist the company in reaching its goal of delivering Jibo robots next year.

In the meantime, what's most interesting here is the emotional engineering that goes into something like this.  

"I would say this is the first social, personal robot," says Illah Nourbakhsh, a roboticist at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Jibo's body language and expressions are designed to convey emotional states in the same way humans do, while his sensors and programming are tuned to our presence.Jibo... more »

Emotional Computing: “Your friend Mary isn’t feeling well. You might want to give her a call.”

Lots of conversations these days on how our emotions are, and will continue to be, mined and manipulated by software. Nowhere is the future of software and the incentives behind its development more poignant than with this question - as the recent ruckus over Facebook's experiment with manipulating the emotional content of its stream confirm. 

In this piece, +Peter H. Diamandis looks at this question, and tells an interesting story: 

Mary Czerwinsk (+Mary Czerwinski) is a cognitive psychologist at Microsoft Research doing pioneering work in Affect Computing.

She tells a story about how she and her boyfriend were in a nasty fight. While they were bantering back and forth, a small wireless device on her wrist was monitoring her emotional ups and downs(through... more »

As computers learn to learn with with new Deep Learning techniques, they rely on humans to help with the initial training. This group out of the University of Washington investigates whether that training process can be handed off to a crowd. What they found is that crowdsourcing can help to teach software to be smart, but you need to be smart about how and where you use it.

Reading this article, I got one of those strange sensations that I had a window into a very strange future, a future vision of contracts, commerce and organizations where software plays a much more critical role than anything we might imagine today. 

This article is not going to be for everyone. Some of the ideas are a bit out there. That said, I think they are fascinating. What +Vitalik Buterin is outlining here is a "smart contract" software framework for automating business processes. What he's talking about here builds on some of the same kinds of heavily distributed validation processes that Bitcoin uses. 

Much of the magic here centers on using software to figure out whether the terms of a contract have or have not been met. When they have, the software authorizes payment. Now there are some cases where that validation is relatively straight forward, but inmany ... more »

Online Gaming and the Future of Movie Making?

This is a video collage done by my 15-year-old son (a.k.a. "theseattlerain"), using clips from the Xbox game, Halo. Would I prefer my son invest his creative talents in other applications? Perhaps. But I share this here with you all because...well, one, I'm proud of him, and two, because it's an interesting peak into one of those subcultures on the net of which you may not be aware. 

First the subculture of compiling video montages of online games. Some of you will know about this; I'm guessing most won't. Basically, what happens is that there's an option to record your clips while you're playing online multi-player games, like Halo. These clips can then be posted online on places like Youtube, and are extremely popular with other players. In fact, while many of you likely know about the official... more »

Is Tech Unemployment Good or Bad?

+Peter H. Diamandis asks some important questions about the future of work and whether the acceleration of robotics and artificial intelligence will result in widescale unemployment. 

See his latest article in +Forbes: http://goo.gl/2eLTRG

In this piece he outlines four potential scenarios: 

(1) Net Positive Increase in Jobs: Exponential technologies will cause a net positive increase in meaningful, skilled jobs and opportunities.

(2) Loss of Jobs, Society Adapts: Exponential technology will dramatically decrease the number of jobs, but society will adjust to this new reality by changing norms around work (days or hours per week, etc.), and/or the creation of work in virtual worlds.

(3) Near-Term Loss & Long-Term Gain of Jobs: There will be a near-term loss of jobs; however, in the long-term,exp... more »

I didn't know that Lincoln said this: 

"Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration."

Yesterday I was digging into the origins of corporations and, while doing that, ran across an interesting list of the world's oldest, still running businesses. It's fascinating. The vast majority are niche businesses, that, I guess you'd say by mere virtue of the fact that they're still around are probably practicing some of these regenerative principles outlined in this piece on regenerative business

There are an estimated 5,600 companies worldwide that are more than 200 years old. More than half are Japanese. There are 58 of these companies that are more than 700 years old. Of these, 23 made or distributed alcohol. Hmmm...maybe alcohol is regenerative?

Google Knows What You're Thinking

Well, not quite and not the way you think it does. Sentiment mining is the next frontier in semantic search. The Facebook emotional contagion experiment that +Gideon Rosenblatt recently blogged about is only symptom of a wider focus of web companies' intention to mine opinion from the mass of unstructured data across their networks. This is new territory both in terms of ethics and practical implications.

Google's Knowledge Graph just added zip codes to the carousel, for easy, place-based searches. This is going to provide a much bigger incentive for local businesses to start tagging information by place. Google's already got plenty of tricks for detecting the location of things (including us), but this just provides a commonly used link to place that most people easily understand. We all know our zip code at home and work, so it's a good short cut for finding stuff near us. 

Curious to see how they will use this to add more functionality to Google Now.

On the Nature of Value

This is one of the most popular articles on The Vital Edge. In it, I explore the hidden nature of value and how it is embedded in our best products and services. 

When I wrote this piece, I didn't overthink it. It just, I just, flowed. I'm hoping to get more into that mode of writing again. Anyway, it's coming up on the one-year anniversary of when I first published it, so I figured it was time to share it again.

Today in History: Henry David Thoreau was born!
On July 12, 1817 — 197 years ago today — Henry David Thoreau was born in Concord, MA. Thoreau is best known for his desire to experience and enjoy nature by living alone in the woods, mostly apart from human civilization. His most famous book, Walden, is about his experience of living near Walden Pond, in Concord, MA. 

Thoreau is also well known for his book, On Civil Disobedience, which detailed his protest against a U.S. war with Mexico. Thoreau was an abolitionist — he wanted slavery ended, not spread into Mexico. So he refused to pay taxes to the government as a protest against a war that would spread slavery. Martin Luther King, Jr. first became aware of the theory of nonviolent resistance when he read Thoreau’s book on civil disobedience. 

Many leaders and artists have quoted Thoreau and have been influenced byhis writi... more »

This is a really interesting interview by  Vinod Khosla of Larry Page and Sergey Brin. They get into a lot of topics, including taxes, distribution of wealth, artificial intelligence, and some interesting details on the self-driving car and their health initiatives. Oh, and there was a point, early on, when they thought about selling Google to Excite. Glad that didn't happen. 

Of particular interest, I think, is some insight on their thinking about whether they're tackling too many different things. They see it differently from other companies - when you do things that are very unrelated to the core of the company's focus, it requires less integration, and management attention. Never heard that one before.
You can jump right to that part at minute 25:00.

Algorithms, journalism and what gets filtered

An interesting look at the role that algorithms now play in journalism. The essence of it is algorithms are playing a bit of the old editorial role, but it's more complicated because they're not used so much by publishers as by distributors. 


"...which of the platforms is going to be the first to offer, like you’re saying, these different slices — a series of different algorithms? Instead of just offering one as a product, what they can boast is: We have fifteen different ways to search an unlimited corpus of data."

"But, show me Hot and show me Trending and show me Controversial, and then let me pull the levers and change the parameters a little bit, and see what that does to the ranking. That recognition that even one algorithm’s criteria shift based on the parameters, seeingthat h... more »

Have you been running into this word, "holacracy" and are wondering what the heck it actually is? Well, this article is a fairly good overview of the basic ideas. 

"Holacracy is closer to what political scientists call epistemic democracy, where decisions are based more on persuasion and expertise than majority rule. There's lots (and lots) of discussions in holacracy, but elected individuals are given permission to act how they please until they screw up."

In case you hadn't heard, the amazingly innovative folks at Zappos are in the midst of turning their company into a holacracy this year. I don't have a lot of heroes in the corporate world, but I guess I would have to say that Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh gets about as close as I go. Earlier this year, I was at the Wisdom 2.0 Conference in San Francisco and heard him spell out his vision for how Zappos... more »

New research out of Harvard Business School has some interesting, and at first, seemingly counter-intuitive, implications for the way we coordinate problem solving with others.

In short, it may help to organize ourselves quite differently for information gathering and for solution generation. Both are important for problem solving, and yet, if we use the same kind of organizational structure for both, we may reduce the diversity of potential solutions from which to choose. 

This is network science put to good use. I've kept this write-up short and succinct (a two-minute read), but it includes a link to the actual paper for more details.

Beer does more than Milton can, to justify God's ways to Man
Aldous Huxley quotes A. E. Housman in this amazing talk given in 1962. +martin shervington linked to the speech this morning and it fits in so well with the current discussions about Facebook and the 'emotional experiments' that I wanted to share it here. If the whole thing is too long for you, skip to minute 33, that's where the quote comes in as well as Huxley's comment that he can imagine future applications of euphoria inducing elements which presents, in his words:
_"an enormous area ... in which a great deal of control could be used, not through terror, but by making life seem much more enjoyable than it normally does. Enjoyable to the point where, as I have said before, human beings come to love a state of things which by any reasonable and decent human sense they ought not to love."more »

But each of us is going to have more and more bots acting on our behalf as well as trying to get our attention. What we see working on Twitter will soon spring from the computer and begin acting in the world.

Best article yet on the Facebook research controversy

I thought I wrote a pretty good piece on the Facebook emotional manipulation research fiasco, but this piece by +danah boyd, is much better. It's long, but worth the read. It goes into a nuanced assessment of research practices today - an area that I know little about, so I found it interesting. 

But the best part of this piece is that she also feels the focus on the research is misplaced, and that what the strong public pushback is really about is a growing uneasiness over big data and the use of opaque algorithms to mysteriously shaper our online experiences - and in ways that, first and foremost, support the commercial objectives of the service provider. 

Note also that danah is concerned that Facebook is incorrectly interpreting the pushback as being about research, and that they will most likely curtailf... more »

We're going to see more and more of this kind of 'AI' -choreographed human workforce. It's not surprising that the Hong Kong subway system has excellent performance metrics with this kind of software-mediated coordination.

I would really like to understand what it's like to be one of the workers there. Does it feel any different from regular management? Do they even notice a difference? Do they even know about the software?

A People's Terms of Service (TOS)

It may seem that I am on an anti-Facebook spiral these past few days.

My goal is not to feed that all-to-easy target here. My intention is to call attention to an abuse, and to help us raise our expectations around what we should expect from online social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and yes, Google+.

These services today already consume a tremendous amount of people's collective attention and "cognitive surplus" (to borrow from +Clay Shirky). But I believe their true importance is as a training ground for the emotional intelligence of future artificial intelligence systems (something I will be exploring in my writing in the months ahead).

The point is, these powerful media networks are already tremendously important and will only become more so in the years ahead.

Is Facebook a Media Company or a Communications Company?

My thoughts were on Facebook yesterday, in light of the brouhaha surrounding recently published research on manipulating their stream to see whether emotions are "contagious" on their network. (See my analysis of why I think what they did is important: http://www.the-vital-edge.com/facebook-experiment/)

But here's a question that I have. It stemmed from comments from +Steve Wright and +Antoine Carriere last night. Is Facebook a media company, or is it a communications carrier? This same question could be asked of some aspects of Google, by the way.

If Facebook is a media company, then, while we might object to their filtering of news, there certainly is plenty of precedent when it comes to large media outfits filtering news and other content to map to particular political or just plainedi... more »

Here, fellow Seattleite, +Nick Hanauer makes an excellent case for getting rid of the whole "trickle down economics" argument once an for all. Long, but well worth the read. 

Sadly, no Republicans and few Democrats get this. President Obama doesn’t seem to either, though his heart is in the right place. In his State of the Union speech this year, he mentioned the need for a higher minimum wage but failed to make the case that less inequality and a renewed middle class would promote faster economic growth. Instead, the arguments we hear from most Democrats are the same old social-justice claims. The only reason to help workers is because we feel sorry for them. These fairness arguments feed right into every stereotype of Obama and the Democrats as bleeding hearts. Republicans say growth. Democrats say fairness—and lose every time.

Facebook Reveals It Can Emotionally Manipulate its Stream

When it comes to Facebook's latest controversy, my concerns have less to do with how the research was conducted, and more to do with what Facebook actually demonstrated while it was conducting this experiment.

What Facebook demonstrated was its ability to use sentiment mining tools such as the Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count (LIWC) to filter its stream based on the emotional content of its users posts. It should probably come as no surprise that the company has this ability, but now we know that they’ve actually used it – at least once - to modify the stream of content that users see, based on its emotional content.

This is actually a big deal.

In explaining the reasons for the experiment, the main Facebook researcher noted that “we were concerned that exposure to friends’ negativitymight l... more »

Is it possible to build an artificial super-intelligence without fully replicating the human brain?

"If extraterrestrial beings with a greater intelligence than ours exist, it is virtually unthinkable that their brains be shaped and function like ours. The process of evolution is so random and complex that even if life were to be created again on a planet identical to Earth, it wouldn't unfold the same way as it did for us, and consequently the species wouldn't be the same. What if the Permian-Triassic extinction, or any other mass extinction event hadn't occurred ? We wouldn't be there. But that doesn't mean that other intelligent animals wouldn't have evolved instead of us. Perhaps there would have been octopus-like creatures more intelligent than humans with a completely different brain structure."

Some of the pictures that look like they're from Tibet are from the recently renamed "Shangrila County" in Yunnan, which is predominantly Tibetan and has an elevation of 11,500 feet (3,500 meters).

Thoughts on Visiting China 25 Years Later

My Connection with China
When I was twenty-two and fresh out of school, I moved to Beijing. I landed my first real job there, and ended up staying for a couple years. When I returned to the U.S. in 1987, I continued my work with China from Washington, D.C. In May 1989, I was in Beijing on a business trip, just as the fledgling democracy movement was taking off. I visited with some of protestors on Tiananmen Square and was deeply moved by what I saw there. It left me with great hope for the future of China.  

A few weeks later, the tanks rolled in and the democracy movement was crushed. It affected me quite deeply, and I decided to disconnect my future from China. 

That was twenty five years ago, and I finally decided to go back. Just last Saturday, my wife and two boys returned from fifteen days traveling toB... more »

Shots from Beijing: June 2014
Just returned from China. Here are 22 shots from Beijing, and I will post shots from Xi'an, Lijiang, Shangrila, Nanjing and Shanghai later. 

I lived in Beijing for two years right out of college. This trip, the city was pretty much unrecognizable to me. Twenty five years of roughly 10% compounded GDP growth has a funny way of doing that.

Taking a Social Media Break

I'm not sure why, but over the last month or so, my enthusiasm for social media has been flagging. My posting here, on my favorite social network, has been spotty, as has been my commenting and interactions on the posts of my favorite people here. My heart's just not been in it. 

So, rather than fight it, I've decided to take a bit of a social media break. I'll still check in periodically to tend to the Good Business community, and I may make a peep here or there, but if you're wondering why I'm quieter than usual, well, this is why. 

I'm not sure how long this break will last, but I hope to come back, fully refreshed and eager to re-engage. In the meantime, I'm sending my best to all of you. Take good care of everyone while I'm away. :-)

This is a good overview of how we got to the current FCC proposal called "Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet". 

In addition, here is the New York Times' initial analysis of the FCC proposal which came out earlier today: 

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/16/technology/fcc-road-map-to-net-neutrality.html?_r=0

Here's a critical piece of the problem: 
Mr. Wheeler argued on Thursday that the proposal did not allow a fast lane. But the proposed rules do not address the connection between an Internet service provider, which sells a connection to consumers, and the operators of backbone transport networks that connect various parts of the Internet’s central plumbing.

That essentially means that as long as an Internet service provider like Comcast or Verizon does not slow the service that a consumer buys, the provider can give fasterserv... more »

Twitter Link Sharing: Ease and Expectations Create Velocity and Volume

When you look at the little social sharing count numbers on articles and blog pages, Twitter, Facebook (and sometimes LinkedIn) frequently outnumber Google+ by quite a bit. Well, I've been spending a little bit more time on Twitter over the last few weeks, and I think I see a simple explanation for why: 

The limited number of characters in a Tweet combined with the ease of using the default sharing text for a particular page, make it so very, very fast and easy to tweet something compared to posting about it here on Google+. This design factor, combined with the culture of Twitter make for a much higher "velocity" of link sharing on that network compared to here. 

Think about it. Yes, there are many people here on Google+ who simply share links with the default image and text and noo... more »

Janrain Social Login Trends Report for Q1 2014

Amidst all the recent speculation, and in particular amidst evidence that Google is testing switching its login branding from Google+ to Google (http://goo.gl/gpHCFd), the following data is quite interesting. Google is making excellent headway:

While its share decreased from 45% to 42% during Q1 2014, Facebook maintains its long-standing lead as the most popular choice for social login. Q1 2014 also saw Google continue to rise in popularity. With 38% share of all social logins, Google has gradually continued to close the gap on Facebook for the past six consecutive quarters. Its popularity is at its highest level in three and half years.

What accounts for this rise  in popularity? The continued emergence of Google+ certainly plays a role. In addition, Google has made a strategic push to unify each of its services (Gmail,... more »
