Kristin Drysdale7,631*Trust*: *Revaluation* As this is a Part deux to our conversation on Blab.im, I thought it apropos to bring to light what it means to have a rise of currency ('trust') to the relation with a foreign currency in a fixed exchange rate (what we perceive to be our asset income). Please join @115620878851836664537, @105225758574529720824, @104683923092143784953, and myself in what should prove to be a heartfelt, friend-to-friend, enlightening discussion on the importance of trust as currency in an ever-expanding digital market. #TrustDavid    #digitalcurrency   #friendship        Trust - Revaluation in an Ever-expanding Digital Market2016-03-03 23:00:0029  
Oleg Moskalensky10,201Have you used the 'new' Google+?  Do you dislike it or do you dislike it? No, it's not a misspelling or Freudian slip... at least you know how I feel. But, to be fair, let's walk through both, side by side and see.  Then you can determine whether you think the new Google+ is worth anything or, like me, you'll decide that Google should take this new version and rest it in peace, right next to their Wave and Reader... I think that'll be an excellent spot for it... but first - let's walk through both and see. P.S. This event was created using the #classic  version of Google+Ultimate Showdown - Google+ (old) vs Google+ (new)2015-12-02 21:30:009  
Ray Hiltz28,561Do you consider yourself an empathetic person? Would you say your company is empathetic? That will be a very strange question for many business owners. Like "social", the word "empathy" doesn't seem to fit in the context of business. Join us Tuesday at 12:15 PM ET when we live stream on: *YouTube* - https://youtu.be/KxTrLkD3Y-Q *RayHiltz.com* - http://rayhiltz.com/ray2go/ *BLAB* -  https://goo.gl/T1jyTQ (Our post-show Blab starts at 1:00 PM ET)    As marketers, we spend a lot of time researching and analyzing data so we have the latest stats and tools with which to do our job. As businesses, we worked hard to get our service or products launched to what we hope will be a public anxious to have what we consider indispensable. We checked all the boxes, completed our SWOT analysis and yet our sales are disappointing. How could people not "get it"? *Who are these people?* Unless you know who they are, what their needs are, what goes on in their daily life and what needs they have, you're rolling the dice instead of in the cash. This week the Ray2Go Show crew discuss the role of *EMPATHY* in your marketing. *Our #Ray2Go Show Expert Panel*: @109237790792840071389 - The ScottTreatment: www.theSCOTTtreatment.com Twitter:@ScottScowcroft Scott's our Rumplestiltskin who spins gold from raw video in his “SCOTT Treatment.” tower. @103099684867114686987 - Bowden2Bowden marketing & branding virtual consultancy firm: http://bowden2bowden.com - Twitter:@bowden2bowden Randy's spent many years in the mad world of marketing.

Debi Davis3,841_The purpose of a case study is to explore and experiment on a focused area of interest in order to develop theories, gain insights, and formulate conclusions that can be useful in advancing a body of knowledge._ On November 8, 2014, the #EagleCO  Team* was formed for the purpose of learning *how to introduce local businesses in a single town to Google Plus through the familiar territory of Google Maps.*  That, at least was the starting point.  This team of Google professionals – that’s what we’ve come to call ourselves as a result of this experience – has documented what we did and what we learned. The case study was published on April 15, 2015. (see link below) @101696764219780312734, known for her ability to get to the heart of the matter, will moderate a candid conversation with members of the team in a discussion about how the case study was conceived, the challenges encountered, the processes tested, the discoveries made, and plans for applying all of this going forward. None of this could have been accomplished without the support and encouragement of our various Google Plus networks and relationships.  If you’re receiving an invitation to this event, it is because you have shown interest in this project at some point: you have viewed or commented on an episode of the #PYBShow  featuring the project, you have commented on or shared a G+ post about it, or you have followed the @116892521277251383087 page that was created for the project. We invite you to be part of this event by commenting, asking questions, or just cheering us on. *This is, above all else, a celebration* of a goal that has been achieved through collaboration and dedication that was all made possible by the fabulousness of Google Plus. (Yes, “fabulousness” is a real word!)  *Team members:@102000982871890720967 @106708791607347215739 @115217137999606626868 @114099764891795191083 @111074048130521266574 @117875987563872032638 @114288177005200377179 @115238438924596047165 @115711602904460768024 @107095918319983994988 @106377741775412763530 @103252396937594847933 @113042596998797418291 @109243977328310908212 @103558652341658229842  Case study: http://bit.ly/1EpaWN4Local Businesses on Google Maps - A Case Study2015-04-21 23:00:00142

Yifat Cohen87,045*What if....* Google+ is not a social network at all - never intended to be a Facebook killer, nor a Twitter wanna-be and definitely not in a rush to keep up with everything else out there...? *What if....* Google+ is Google's way of analyzing our personal relationships across all their products (because relationships can't be faked) and use that knowledge to fuel services like Google Now, Nest, Home automation and Driveless cars...? *"So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?"* @102034052532213921839 is an ex-Google employee who helped design the UX of Google+ before he left Google a year ago, and whose name came up again on the Plus stream when he shared his *Thoughts on Google+* asking [quote] "So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?" and got the community talking. *SO LET'S -TALK- HANGOUT ABOUT IT.* Chris is very disappointed with Google+ because he expects better from Google. But maybe he's expecting the wrong things? @113117251731252114390 rebutted Chris' post and defended Google+ in a Google+ post that was shared 524 time and sparked conversations across the Plus (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal1)  Chris responded - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/ChrisMessinaRebutal And Mike claimed that Chris lost the argument because he didn't answer the main questions: "What site has 1) a better community; 2) better troll control; 3) better photo tools; 4) better integration with a leading wearables platform; 5) better conversations; 6) better monetization; 7) better search?" (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal2) Basically, comparing Google+ to Facebook again. (_sigh_) *IS CHRIS USING GOOGLE+ WRONG?* Chris, who was an integral part in the development of Google+ for 3.5 years was told by @107742059751171695340 that he was using Google+ wrong. He should have been talking and listening to Top Contributors (which Jaana is one) who have their ears to the ground: _"Which is the direction it's taking? That depends. Also on us, the users.  Google listens."_ (You should definitely read the comments on Jaana's post, where she and Chris get into an agreement - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/JaanaNyströmGooglePlus) *IS IT ABOUT THE SHARED INTEREST GRAPH?* Perhaps the best insight is that of @105103058358743760661 who read between Chris' lines and brought up the point of Big Data and information networks: [Google+] "should have been 1000% focused on helping people build a rich information network around the things we care most about - our interest graph - and then to use that interest graph to connect us with *new* people who share those interests with us - our "shared interest graph." And if it's about the interest graph, then who's better than @115620878851836664537 to remind us that that takes time: _ It requires building a bunch of things, integrating them and then waiting to see how people will use them and what the data will show you. This means that we have to wait to see some results (many of which will impact search) andGoogle Rebuttal - Chris Messina's Perspective.2014-12-11 19:00:00171

ISOOSI Research Engine3,482This week on the #ISOOSICHAT  we are excited to have special guest @112116680648779331229 from Search Engine Roundtable (SER). Barry will be joining our regular #ISOOSIChat panelists including @113426828273677356184 @106515636986325493284 and @112430199625001815612. 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 subject. On this hangout we aim to separate fact from fiction. Rumors and myths versus papers and truths and all points between.Search Marketing Rumors, Myths and Truths2014-03-18 20:00:0059

Meloney Hall4,216Teacher Says, “ Okay, class --  you better take notes for this lesson.” Fifteen students take notes vigorously as they try to keep up with writing cursive on their lined notebook paper. Eight Students do not take any notes at all.  They might ask for someone’s notes later. One Student draws doodles as a form of note-taking.  She gets laughed at and told to “grow-up” and take notes the right way.  I’m kind of embarrassed I listened to those peers; I need to gain those skills again!  So much easier to retain the information when you can draw pictures with your written notes (printed, not cursive).  How about the Digital Way of taking notes today?  That’s what +113865527017476906160  will be showing us during the HOA broadcast with me.  I will be interviewing Sacha Chua on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:00pm ET / 3:00pm PT about how she uses SketchNotes for taking notes in a digital format.  Free-flow handwriting and techy all at the same time!  She’s a woman in science and technology, so she really loves gadgets!    She uses SketchNotes, and it’s really very fascinating!  Watching her do them LIVE is really the best!  I know Sacha as a fellow HelpOuts Provider, and I have seen her do this for many HOA’s.  This is why I wanted to interview her --  you’ll say WOW like I did when I first learned about her and what she does.    This is a link to give you the basic idea of what the system is and why it is so handy for students, business people, and anyone else who needs to retain information.  And if you’re into saving paper, then this is a true match for you!  I like to think of SketchNotes as a digital white board.  http://www.core77.com/blog/sketchnotes/sketchnotes_101_the_basics_of_visual_note-taking_19678.asp Select YES or MAYBE to get a reminder on your calendar.  It will also help mark the spot if you can’t watch live, but will want to watch the replay.  You’re in for a techy-treat!  Hope you’ll be watching! Visual Note-Taking with Sacha Chua2014-03-12 23:00:0033

Eli Fennell70,902*Mommy Blogging* Moms 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.  @116049412326685043114 is the Owner and Founder of @109443498013606253208, a company that broadcasts your conferences and meetings via social media.  She also runs the @104387705093966958943 blog along with @105157585341687205092.  @105461979270549477337, 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. @116648555722751383250 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   #digitalmediaconnections   #mommyblogger  Digital Media Connections #4 - Mommy Blogging2014-02-27 02:00:0016

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: @108712904755834193601  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.com Each week @117778937939543425499 & @101696764219780312734  spotlight guests who share their inspiring stories of ingenuity, tenacity and courage!

Eli Fennell70,902*Building a Following* There 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. @110677274294554982279 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. @102000982871890720967 is an Authority Marketer & Brand Strategist at @115000108263064481690, 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. @114468593663912084118 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 02:00:0033  
ISOOSI Research Engine3,482@107022061436866576067 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. @112430199625001815612  President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0093  
martin shervington1,424,099I am delighted to be interviewing @104858643838035519891 @108493275257625053433 and @111798765849955344981. And here is the plan... I am going to ask every question about social that I can think of, but I need you help. What would you like to know? What are the gaps you need to be filled? How about cross platform posting? Tools they use? This is going to be a great opportunity to look at Google+, alongside Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and beyond. Can't wait. It is going to be a lot of fun too.Interview with three of the very best in Social Media!2014-02-11 20:00:00118

Yifat Cohen87,045*Simply having your site mobile compatible is not enough any more.* Think about it - Why did Facebook take a *mobile first-approach* when they launched Paper today? Why didn't they start with a web experience and think, “How can we strip this down and put it on a small screen?”  Because we engage with our phones and consume information on it differently. *How -Can- Do You Reach Your Customers On The Go?* It's not a question of IF, it's a question of when and how, and to answer your most urgent mobile questions I bring to you @110204961428230314896 who is known to be *Holding the hands of the "WHAT IF" and leading them to the "WHY NOT"* *The Power of Partnerships and Networks* Here's the beautiful part of this entire process - you really don't have to go at it alone.

Christine & Mia7,971Join +Christine & Mia and our January guest host +Craig Fifield to interview special guest +Eli Davidson this week. *Wednesday, January 15th* 11:30am PST/12:30pm MST/1:30pm CST/2:30pm EST More 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 Cohen87,045METal 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 meetings* This week, Tim Sanders, a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and former Yahoo! executive will be speaking about *Creating the Sale* The 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 idea This 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. *ENTERTAINMENT* Enjoy 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. It quickly advanced into heavyweight territory when an independent game publisher with a zealous following approached Battlefy to run a world championship on its platform.

Jesse Wojdylo993,642Over 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 20:00:0053

Apollo Guidance Computer Code Lands On GitHub

If you've ever wanted to dive deep into the computer code that guided humanity to the moon, today is your lucky day.

The code for the Apollo Guidance Computer has recently been uploaded to GitHub, after a long and arduous manual process of copying the code from paper copies. It is now available to all and sundry.

If NASA's Apollo lunar missions inspired you, and you're a code buff, this code is a Candy Land for the mind, and a living, breathing piece of history.

If, on the other hand, you believe the moon landings were fake, this will awe and amaze you at just how much effort was put into making the lie seem entirely convincing.

Latest Research Fails To Find 'Dark Matter'

Dark Matter is a theoretical form of matter meant to account for part of the so-called 'missing mass' of the universe. Visible matter, as you may or may not be aware, can only account for a single digit percentage of the mass that binds galaxies together, based on gravitational considerations.

Dark Matter purports to fill in at least some of this gap, but in theory does not interact with visible matter in any conventional manner such as gravitational or electromagnetic interactions that might be readily detected.

In fact, no single model even agrees on what it would be, though at least one model suggests it might be a weakly interacting particle. The latest attempt to test this model comes from the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) detector, a detector built underground in South Dakota which uses one-third of a... more »

Latest Research Fails To Find 'Dark Matter'

Dark Matter is a theoretical form of matter meant to account for part of the so-called 'missing mass' of the universe. Visible matter, as you may or may not be aware, can only account for a single digit percentage of the mass that binds galaxies together, based on gravitational considerations.

Dark Matter purports to fill in at least some of this gap, but in theory does not interact with visible matter in any conventional manner such as gravitational or electromagnetic interactions that might be readily detected.

In fact, no single model even agrees on what it would be, though at least one model suggests it might be a weakly interacting particle. The latest attempt to test this model comes from the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) detector, a detector built underground in South Dakota which uses one-third of a ton of ultra pure liquid Xenon in hopes of detecting an interaction with a Dark Matter particle. Unfortunately, the detector failed to find any evidence as such.

Undeterred, the detector will soon be upgraded to much greater sensitivity, though one may be forgiven at this point for suspecting the whole thing may be a Wild Goose Chase.

For all the effort being expended to find it, Dark Matter may well be a mathematical phantom taking the place of some unknown factors or variables affecting our current physical models.

Only time will tell.

New Godzilla: Resurgence Trailer

American filmmakers may finally have found their footing with Godzilla movies, after debooting the Roland Emmerich Jurassic Park ripoff, but that isn't stopping Japan from still making their own.

There is a new Japanese version of Godzilla, a reboot in its own right, called Shin Godzilla, or Godzilla: Resurgence, and if the new trailer is to be believed, it looks pretty good, and a bit creepy.

Those Were The Days (the 90's, I Mean)
 
Remember the 90's anti-hero figure? The kind from movies like Office Space, Fight Club, American Beauty, and even to a degree The Matrix?
 
He was a generally-law-abiding (if sometimes rule-bending) guy with a boring office job that enabled him to have lots of material comfort and possessions, usually (though not always) with an unfulfilling relationship to his wife or girlfriend, and usually (but again, not always) with spoiled and ungrateful children.
 
And this, we accepted, meant there was some deep dark hole where his soul and sense of purpose should be, and cheered them on when they finally 'snapped' or were liberated from this materialistic intoxication and set out to tear down the system while simultaneously giving a giant 'Screw You!' to their bosses, relationships, and families.

Any Twitter User Can Now Request A Verified Account
 
Twitter, which traditionally has tended to only verify public figures, brands, and other high profile types of users, is now allowing users to request verification via an online form.  Most people shouldn't get overly excited, however, as you will still have to make a compelling argument for why you need verification (i.e. why verifying your account would be in the interest of the public).
 
Nonetheless, this should significantly expand the appearance of Verified Accounts on the network.  This should also indirectly benefit Google, due to the companies' Search integration deal.

'Thinking' With Your Heart And 'Gut' Not Just A Metaphor

The brain is the organ of thought... or so the story goes. But like many stories, it turns out this one may not be entirely true.

In addition to the brain, at least two other organs of the body do some of our thinking (though not necessarily conscious thought or executive decision-making, to be clear) for us: the heart and the stomach.

Decades of growing evidence have shown that both of these organs contain their own complex neurological structures, capable of a certain level of independent 'thought' processes. These both generate their own complex neurological activity, and enjoy a bidirectional relationship with the brain, sending and receiving signals, and even sending 'orders' to the brain.

Colloquial expressions have intuited this for millennia, perhaps as long as mankind has existed on this planet: to think with your heart or gut are classical concepts, often treated as purely poetic, but which in fact seem to embody (to some degree) a literal truth.

This understanding may enable scientists to design better drugs and other treatments for various mental and emotional conditions, as well as help explain otherwise mysterious data such as the role which Prozac, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, plays in causing stomach disturbances.

3 Things Google Wants To Kill
 
Google's CEO Larry Page is obsessed with disruption, and with a philosophy known as '10X Thinking'.  It shows in the way Google operates and the goals they pursue.  One of those goals is to test assumptions of how things should be, and when necessary to 'kill' the old ways of doing things.
 
In the following article, I discuss three things Google has targeted for 'execution', and how they're going about it.

Atomic Hard Drive Writes Data At The Atomic Level

Researchers at Delft University in the Netherlands have developed a hard drive that can store over 500 terabytes per square inch by writing data at the level of individual atoms.

The system writes data in a combination of Chlorine atoms and atomic gaps, at liquid nitrogen temperatures. This is not technically the first such drive, but easily beats previous systems for write speed, although writing still requires minutes and is thus currently slower than consumer hard drives.

However, researchers believe the technique may be applicable to other types of atoms at warmer temperatures, and that the write speed can be made comparable to standard hard drives. Barring the former, the latter is likely still possible, and could be viable for use in contexts such as data centers where such low temperatures are able to... more »

Almost Everyone In Argentina Needs Therapy (and That's OK)
 
In many cultures, going to a therapist is considered something slightly taboo, necessary perhaps for those with serious mental and emotional problems, or rich people with money to blow (the same types who hire Nutritionists and Personal Shoppers), but generally something 'normal' and 'healthy' people don't do.
 
However, in Argentina, receiving psychoanalytic therapy is considered a perfectly normal part of mental 'hygiene', and such therapeutic services are available at any price range, even the cost of a couple of fast food meal deals.  It also culturally linked to leftist political philosophies like Marxism, especially with resistance to totalitarian government.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service NOT Using Drones To Feed Vaccine M&M's To Ferrets
 
Contrary to some recent media reports, the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service isn't using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (i.e. drones) to feed vaccine-laced M&M's to wild ferrets.  However, the truth is almost as weird:
 
They're currently researching the feasibility of using drones to distribute oral-vaccine-laced, peanut butter-filled food pellets to prairie dogs, the primary prey of black-footed ferrets, to vaccinate them against an exotic flea-borne plague that infects both animals and is threatening the survival of the species.
 
Drones are being considered because it is implausible to distribute the pellets by foot.  All-Terrain Vehicles are also being considered as a means of efficient distribution.  The agency hopes to do a trial run by the end of this year. more »

Researchers also previously tested the use of flea powder as a means of protecting the animals from exposure, but unfortunately the fleas began to develop a resistance to the powder, thereby necessitating the vaccine.

Florida Cats Flood Shelter By Turning On Faucet

A group of cats, or at least one of them, caused thousands of dollars of water damage at the Florida Humane Society of Pompano Beach when they somehow managed to turn on the unattended faucet in their cat room.

Naturally, as cats will do, they chilled out high and dry in their elevated beds until help came, and no doubt acted completely innocent about it.

How The Hyperlink Is Google's 'Secret Weapon': Update 07/17/2016
 
In case you hadn't noticed (or read some earlier version of this article), Google really, really loves link Sharing.  They love it so much, they've inserted it as an option all over their products and services, from Google Drive to Hangouts, Google Photos to YouTube, Google+ to Google Spaces.
 
It wasn't always this way, though.  Not too long ago, in fact, the company turn a dark turn down a dead end street in futile pursuit of Facebook.  Their failure in this, while spectacular, also taught them a valuable lesson: beit ever so humble, nothing beats that old chestnut of web Sharing known as the hyperlink, as I explain in the following article.
 
Updated to include the new link Sharing options for Google Hangouts Group Chats.

Archaeologists Find Artifacts Of Monkey 'Stone Age'

Mankind's Stone Age, it seems, was not as unique as we might believe. Archaeologists have discovered evidence that, for at least the past seven centuries, Capuchin monkeys in Brazil have been using stone tools to smash open the shells of cashew nuts and seeds.

At distinct 'cashew-processing sites', these clever little simians have been using 'hammer' stones to pound open the nuts and seeds on special 'anvil' stones, with the behavior passed down via learning to younger monkeys generation after generation. It's even possible that the first humans to arrive in the area may have learned about these foods from observing their behaviors .

Nor was their behavior isolated: macaques of Thailand have likewise been observed using stone tools to break open oyster shells for at least the past 50 to 100 years.

This may well be the most significant case of 'monkey see, monkey do' in the whole of monkey history.

Your Mom Was Right: Stay Warm Or You Might Catch A Cold
 
Researchers at Yale University have been testing how human airway cells, which provide an essential line of defense against cold virus, respond to viral infection at different temperatures.  What they've found will make your mother (or other concerned caregiver) feel feel vindicated, not to mention whoever named it 'the cold' in the first place: at lower temperatures, your body seems less capable of responding effectively to airborne infections.

'End Times' Pastor Thinks ISIS Using 'Demonic' Pokemen GO To Target Christians

Rick Wiles, a Pastor who frequently warns that the Apocalypse is coming, is now inveighing against the Augmented Reality mobile game Pokemon GO as a Satanic vehicle for 'cyber demons', and fears that since Churches are included in the game as 'PokeStops' that ISIS might use it to target Christians.

As it happens, in fact, CrossOver makes even more sense for Chrome than it did for Android proper, not only because of form factor considerations but also because it requires Intel processors, which are more common on Chromebooks than Android devices by far.

Soon, you may be able to enjoy some, perhaps many, of your favorite Windows Apps on a Chromebook, along with Android apps.

Are you a Chromebook user? Does the possibility of Windows Apps on a Chromebook excite you?

Apollo Guidance Computer Code Lands On GitHub

If you've ever wanted to dive deep into the computer code that guided humanity to the moon, today is your lucky day.

The code for the Apollo Guidance Computer has recently been uploaded to GitHub, after a long and arduous manual process of copying the code from paper copies. It is now available to all and sundry.

If NASA's Apollo lunar missions inspired you, and you're a code buff, this code is a Candy Land for the mind, and a living, breathing piece of history.

If, on the other hand, you believe the moon landings were fake, this will awe and amaze you at just how much effort was put into making the lie seem entirely convincing.

Google Hangouts 11 Adds Video Messages & Boots Merged Conversations

Google's Hangouts messenger app for Android's latest update, Version 11, has added a much requested feature long available on iOS: video messages.

(While the linked article below rightly points out this means Hangouts is now less feature rich than Apple's iMessage, it omits the issues this has also caused, which anyone who has switched from iMessage and iOS to Android and some other SMS messenger can attest. At any rate, iMessage is low hanging fruit in the messenger wars, arguably propped up only by its default messenger status.)

No, It's Not (Currently) Illegal To Share Netflix Passwords

The internet in recent days has been rife with claims that a Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals ruling makes it illegal to share Netflix, Facebook, HBO Go, or similar online service passwords.

If true, this would be quite alarming. Luckily it isn't true... at least, not yet, or not in the way these articles suggest. Indeed, it must be regarded as pure clickbait journalism at present, as the case involved former employees of an executive search firm borrowing credentials from another employee to continue accessing that firm's systems on behalf of their new executive search firm. Previously they had used their own credentials, which was not ruled illegal. It is hard to see that any of this tells us anything about sharing a Netflix password with a friend, to say the least.

Previously they had used their own credentials, which was not ruled illegal. It is hard to see that any of this tells us anything about sharing a Netflix password with a friend, to say the least.

That said, the underlying law on which this ruling was based is astonishingly vague, and it is possible some future case might make such a thing illegal. It may be considered unlikely, but not impossible. If they do, however, they will not be citing the current case as precedent.

We might also reasonably ask why Netflix, Facebook, or HBO would even be interested in pursuing such charges. It seems unlikely they would, as they could surely simply revoke your access, and would have little to no motivation in cases of pedestrian, everyday password sharing to be so legally vindictive.

So, on its face, as presented, this should rightly be regarded as an internet hoax, if perhaps an unwitting one. However, it is best nonetheless to exercise caution. Adding an additional Netflix user to an account is a lot cheaper than the potential consequences might some day become.

Google Acquires Kifi To Bolster Spaces App

Google has acquired Kifi, a company building out technology and extensions to search for links shared via social media as well as recommend links, to bring their talent to the new Spaces group chat app, which allows users to share and discuss links, videos, and other content in a quasi-chat+social-network-like environment without leaving the app.

While Kifi's products won't be merged, presumably they will be utilized to bring a similar type of link searching and recommendation technology to Spaces, which of course makes sense given the nature of app.

Google has acquired Kifi, a company building out technology and extensions to search for links shared via social media as well as recommend links, to bring their talent to the new Spaces group chat app, which allows users to share and discuss links, videos, and other content in a quasi-chat+social-network-like environment without leaving the app.

While Kifi's products won't be merged, presumably they will be utilized to bring a similar type of link searching and recommendation technology to Spaces, which of course makes sense given the nature of app.

Does Time Have A Quantum Origin?

The nature of time and its origin remains one of the most debated subjects in the physical sciences. Why does the arrow of time point in one direction (or does it?), and why does it appear irreversible (or is it?)?

One traditional explanation lay in the dissipation of energy via the laws of thermodynamics, as when heat energy escapes from the system and is 'lost'. Another, even more fundamental explanation lay with the quantum phenomenon of decoherence: whereas individual particles, such as two photons, can interfere with each other due to coordination of their quantum 'waviness' (as observed in 'dual slit' experiments), when there are many such particles they quickly lose this coordination and 'decohere'.

Does Time Have A Quantum Origin?

The nature of time and its origin remains one of the most debated subjects in the physical sciences. Why does the arrow of time point in one direction (or does it?), and why does it appear irreversible (or is it?)?

One traditional explanation lay in the dissipation of energy via the laws of thermodynamics, as when heat energy escapes from the system and is 'lost'. Another, even more fundamental explanation lay with the quantum phenomenon of decoherence: whereas individual particles, such as two photons, can interfere with each other due to coordination of their quantum 'waviness' (as observed in 'dual slit' experiments), when there are many such particles they quickly lose this coordination and 'decohere'.

Yet another school of thought points to wave function collapse, whereby a particle (usually or always as a result of being 'observed' or 'measured') loses its quantum 'waviness', e.g. when a photon in a dual slit experiment is measured by a detector loses its wave-like behavior of passing through both slits at once and instead passes only through one slit or another.

This last is especially interesting, as it is possible to rig the detector to detect the particle only after it passes through a slit, yet it appears to only pass through one of the slits from the very start, whereas by other means of measurement it appears to pass through both slits at once. This implies an unintuitive 'retrocausation', where present or future measurement changes the behavior of the particle in its past.

If the latter perspective is correct, then time may not always be 'fixed', leaving a residue in some cases of quantum indeterminacy until the wave function is collapsed. So, whereas the broad strikes of time may appear 'fixed' (as when a movie script is largely completed but still requires some minor rewording of character dialogue), some 'gray zones' of time may remain 'unfixed' until such measurement occurs.

In any of these perspectives, 'time' may not be as much a physical law or dimension as we usually think of it, but rather a consequence of information being 'scrambled' until it becomes irreversible, i.e. as entropy increases, as (by analogy) when a military grade process of deleting information in a computer leaves that information nonrecoverable (lesser forms of deletion sometimes leave memory recoverable, even after a full hard drive format).

The 'arrow' of time, then, would be in relation to the direction away from this scrambling of information, allowing potentially for the 'retrocausation' suggested by experiments on wave function collapse (e.g. if the information was still reversible "in the past" because the wave function hasn't fully collapsed yet, then the 'scrambling' of quantum information may not always happen entirely in what we think of as the 'present' moment).

Our intuition may tell us that time is a one-way, entirely irreversible process, as absolute as gravity pulling masses towards a common center of mass, but it appears our intuition on this may be as incorrect as on many other things, such as our intuitive belief that heavier objects should fall faster under gravity.

Facebook Takes On Snapchat Again: Third Time Charm Or Strike Three?

Facebook recently updated their popular Messenger app with a new feature called 'Secret Conversations', providing users with optional end-to-end encryption. Along with it, however, they have also quietly launched a self-destructing messaging feature similar to Snapchat.

The company has done this twice before (three times if you count a test of a similar Messenger feature last year, though that never formally launched), with their unabashed Snapchat Clone called Poke and, later, the Snapchat-like Slingshot messenger, both of which failed abysmally.

Do you think adding this feature to Messenger will better position them to take a dent out of their rival, or has the battle against Snapchat already been lost?

Pokemon Go Used For Robberies
Missouri Police Catch 'Em All

Police have arrested four men in Missouri for using the new mobile game Pokemon Go to lure in and rob people.

The suspects created a so-called "Pokestop" in-game, then waited for players to show up at the real world location of the stop to rob them.

Such issues were inevitably going to arise with these sorts of Augmented Reality games, and it behooves players to be careful out there.

Simon Pegg and George Takei Disagree On Gay Sulu

In the upcoming film Star Trek: Beyond, the character of Sulu will be gay, in case you hadn't heard of this 'controversy' by now. It would surely be denying the obvious to pretend this had nothing to do with George Takei, the original Sulu, being gay, though he is of course now played by a different actor, and by all indications it will be handled tastefully, without reducing him to some Flaming Gay Queen.

Surprisingly, perhaps, Takei himself described the decision as 'unfortunate', both on grounds that it was not how Roddenberry first presented the character, and because they didn't introduce a new LGBTQI character instead.

Surprisingly, perhaps, Takei himself described the decision as 'unfortunate', both on grounds that it was not how Roddenberry first presented the character, and because they didn't introduce a new LGBTQI character instead.

Now Simon Pegg, the new Scotty, has offered a thoughtful and respectful rebuttal, arguing that on the one hand, these new characters are alternate timeline characters not fully beholden to the original timeline, that Roddenberry would likely have included an LGBTQI character from the start had he not been limited by the conventions of the time, and that to introduce a new LGBTQI character would risk that character forever being 'otherized' as 'the gay character' instead of a main character who just happens to be gay.

While I, like Pegg, respect the hell out of Takei, I must side with Pegg. The absence of such a character in the main cast has always been a notable absence in a TV and film series characterized by unapologetic inclusion, the introduction of a new character who somehow avoids the stigma of being seen as a 'token' would have been virtually insurmountable, and having it be Sulu makes for a respectful nod to the original character actor and his invaluable role as a representative and spokesman for the cause.

If anything, this reaffirms in my mind that the new Trek movies truly are Trek: Infinite Diversity In Infinite Combinations.

Neil deGrasse Tyson's Terrible Idea Of A Nation Ruled By Science

Celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson recently proposed the idea of a society wherein all policy is ruled by the weight of scientific evidence. Such a society might be preferable to a Theocracy, in which all policy is based on religious Faith and Doctrine, but as the following article brilliantly explains, it is nowhere near as good an idea in practice as it might sound in theory.

Scientific understanding evolves, and sometimes we discover that previous evidence such as the evidence for Phrenology was not as good as it seemed. At the same time, scientists themselves are humans, and even en masse can sometimes find the evidence they wanted to find rather than objective truth. There are clear enough examples from history to warrant legitimate distrust of such an idea, as when one looks at the historical... more »

There are clear enough examples from history to warrant legitimate distrust of such an idea, as when one looks at the historical implementations of ideas like Social Darwinism, resulting at times in tremendous and unnecessary suffering.

He is right to this extent: science and scientists, while imperfect, still offer the best means of arriving at objective and consensus truth which is capable of eventually self-correcting its errors, and thus ought to be given substantial consideration in the crafting of national policy, for example on issues of the environment and education... but not given unchallenged free reign.

Bryan Cranston Says New Power Rangers Movie A Significant 'Reimagining'
 
Bryan Cranston, best known for his role as Breaking Bad's Walter White (aka Heisenberg), will soon be taking on a very different role, as he has signed on to play the role of Zordon for the upcoming Power Rangers movie.  Cranston has a history with the franchise, having done voice work previously for the series.
 
While such a film would normally be of no interest to more mature audiences, Cranston insists that this new film is a radical departure, as radical as the departure of the Batman TV series to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight films.  Though, to be clear, he stopped short of saying this film would be as dark as those.
 
This may... may... just be enough to actually get me to see it, if only when it comes to online streaming services.

Your website probably sucks, and it's your fault.

Updated: Facebook Tells Brands 'Friends Come First'
 
Facebook's recent changes to their News Feed algorithm, along with changes introduced last year, point to one inevitable conclusion: beit ever so humble, there's no News Feed like one filled with Status Updates from your Friends and Family.
 
And in this new reality where Facebook is giving up the pretense that they're a news service or a full blown World Wide Web replacement, brands and Page owners must face the equally inevitable conclusion: by-in-large, you are not welcomed, either organically or even for anything less than a boatload of cash.
 
In the following article, I discuss the implications of these changes for users and Page owners, and why it may be time to rethink if not entirely give up on the idea that your Page is the invaluable asset you may have thought it was.

Google Wants To Use Chrome To Bring VR To The Entire Web

Google has added a VR Shell Flag to the latest Beta and Dev versions of Google Chrome (and to the underlying open source Chromium project), in a move that will help set the stage for a Full Web Virtual Reality Experience.

This support is currently meant to allow Google Cardboard and Daydream VR viewer users to browse websites and view web content in virtual reality (though we may expect it to eventually support other types of VR viewers), with the obvious goal of bringing the web into the virtual reality future they and many other companies are now vigorously pursuing as the 'Next Big Thing'.
