[NEW] An Australian librarian who read my article about the "potential economic of Internet of Things" felt the article didn't empower or educate the public. Instead, Hugh Rundle said that I made the false equivalence between privacy and security. It's a fair criticism. While I didn't dismiss legitimate privacy concerns about connecting hundreds of millions of physical objects to the Internet, I should have done better explaining why those concerns aren't just a matter of education.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alexander-howard/embracing-the-internet-of_b_7715268.html

Minds has existed as a blogging platform since 2012, reaching 30,000 users in its private alpha. But on June 19, the developers behind it launched a new social network and associated mobile applications for Apple and Android devices. And according to CEO Bill Ottman, the Minds app is already wildly popular, with almost 1 million accounts.

The Minds team hopes that allowing people to use a virtual currency system and putting privacy at the forefront will differentiate their product in an already crowded marketplace. When people use the Minds mobile app to upload content, vote, refer people, post or comment, they earn points -- which can then be used to boost their own or other people's updates on the network.

[NEW from me] Digitizing our world through the "Internet of Things" could be worth $11 trillion by 2025, according to a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute​.  
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/26/internet-of-things_n_7664930.html 

As more data is collected about people's movements, health, interactions and transactions, the public needs to be educated about the Internet of Things, particularly how the data generated from it will be collected and used. Just as it's become clear over the past decade that the general public needed to know about the Internet to log on and fully benefit from it, we'll need to understand this new layer of connectivity in the decade ahead.

Included is my distillation of what my dad​ told me over the years: 

"My father advised me to listen closely, be present in anything I do, and to trust my instincts as I pursue my passions and vocation. I don't have his discipline, but I like to think that his example has informed the way that I approach research, structure, and synthesis of complex topics in my own writing.

Happy Father's Day, everyone! In honor of the day, The +Huffington Post​ published a selection of career advice from fathers to their children, all of whom are on staff at the online giant: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/20/fathers-day-advice_n_7623692.html

Included is my distillation of what my dad​ told me over the years: 

"My father advised me to listen closely, be present in anything I do, and to trust my instincts as I pursue my passions and vocation. I don't have his discipline, but I like to think that his example has informed the way that I approach research, structure, and synthesis of complex topics in my own writing.

Like many people in my generation, the pathway I've taken to my present work has led me through different industries and workplaces. There have been some significant ups and downs in that journey, but my father has always been there to offer steady, thoughtful counsel as I thought about what to do next. He advised me to acknowledge my emotions and resist letting them drive my decisions, waiting a beat before acting or speaking. While I wish that I’d taken his advice over the years more consistently, I hope that as I've grown older, I've become a wiser man as a result."___

Twitter​ is hiring "real-time curators" to cover events:
http://www.buzzfeed.com/mathonan/twitters-top-secret-project-lightning-revealed

They're looking for people with newsroom backgrounds: http://www.poynter.org/news/mediawire/351987/twitter-is-hiring-people-with-newsroom-backgrounds-as-real-time-curators/

Why? Because they'll be performing an editorial function: choosing which tweets from the river to feature for an audience, including embedded media like video and pictures. 

The big question: how much the tech company's staff can or will fact-check tweets and add context to them during events. That may end up being the key value for the public that journalists retain, along with the editorial independence to quote individuals or report on aspects of the event that might go otherwise un-amplified.

"We haven't settled on a revenue model yet," James Windon, the CEO of Brigade told me. "In the first year, we're making sure it's a 'deliver enough' model. The value proposition is that it's easy to weigh in and find commonality."
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alexander-howard/brigade-seeks-to-reboot-political-engagement_b_7607306.html?utm_hp_ref=technology

If Brigade succeeds, advocacy groups and campaigns will be able to precisely target the people who agree with their positions, those who might agree, and the people in various communities who are influential. Given enough data, they might even be able to suggest the kinds of arguments that might shift positions - or votes.

The  European Court of Human Rights put a big barrier in the road to people who want to startup up Internet companies in the European Union. One of the key policy decisions that has enabled social networks (like Facebook) and video sharing platforms (like YouTube) and blogs/community forums (like lots of places) to grow is something called "intermediary liability." 

It basically means that the site owner is not responsible for the comments, updates, videos, or pictures users share there. If there's a copyright or privacy issue, the user is on the hook, not the site operator. You can probably guess how this court ruled.

The latest cover of The New Yorker captures a scene familiar to many parents. It's an evocative image of two girls sitting indoors, facing away from one another and staring at screens on a beautiful summer day. They look "alone, together", to use MIT professor Sherry Turkle's phrase. Some folks may see the magazine cover and worry. This is the story of what's really going on, and why (at least on this count) things are not what they seem:
