ISOOSI Research Engine3,472*Roles and Stories in Effective Marketing* with Dr. Mani Saint-Victor ( @118176779352783168766 ) and @107656088609554509650  In our last show we discussed how words shape brands, both to those within, and without the company.  Building from that understanding of words, tone, voice, this week we go to the *Customer's story* and how we find and play our role in that story. Its fine to define ourselves to ourselves, in a fixed context of simply describing who we are, what our mission is, and similar things... But how does that matter to the potential customer who is wrapped up in their own problems right now?  How do we present ourselves in relation to a specific issue and mindset without losing any of that true definition of ourselves. In this episode we'll revise the importance of 'story', but from the perspective of the customer's story rather than our own.  We'll discuss how we fit ourselves into a vital and needed role in that story, and how to play that role effectively, powerfully, believable, and above all, truthfully. *Links* G+ Hangout Event: http://isoo.si/Ab23D Watch on YouTube: http://isoo.si/t3B2S Main Comment stream: http://isoo.si/Ab23D Related recommended reading: http://isoo.si/q5FWn Join our wonderful guests @118176779352783168766 and @107656088609554509650, the   #isoosichat   regulars @113426828273677356184, @106515636986325493284 and @116843668885160648294 for this discussion.Roles and Stories in Effective Marketing2014-07-01 21:00:0073

Meloney Hall4,125Teacher 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

Jim Shankle1It's always a pleasure hearing +David Amerland discuss _*"The GSS/G+ Connection"*_ because it's a subject area with many facets. For mobile viewers click on this YouTube Link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S76tXQ5qZ30  The time for the Event is translated to your local time zone. As a reference, it starts at 7:30 PM ET. _Google Semantic Search_ and its direct connection to, and support by, Google+ (what I am starting to call _"The GSS/G+ Connection"_) is remarkably deep and important. Yet David explains it with such simplicity, ease, and freshness that it's very understandable and enjoyable no matter your level of experience. Unquestionably, there is a wealth of material in this subject matter which means David will never be over-exposed or fail to peel back yet another layer of this *very large* onion every time he appears in an HOA. Thursday night he is joining my _MBA Marketing Strategies_ class at John Brown University (Rogers Center in Northwest Arkansas) via Google Hangouts On Air. David will explain _The GSS/G+ Connection_ from an MBA's and marketer's perspective. He will also introduce some unique "life applications" that should be pursued as an extension of the emerging power of GSS and Google+. Our session will start at 6:30 PM CST for those interested in seeing Marketing Strategies examined from David's unique perspective. *Two facts backing my conclusion that David has struck a deep vein...* 1) He had 22,000 Followers when I started communicating with him 5-6 weeks ago. Today his Followers number over 150,000, and 2) His game-changing book _Google Semantic Search_ - 230 pages (including an extensive Bibliography for those who want to explore the subject even further) that mines (as David calls it) a "semantically dense" subject. Proof that GSS/G+ is a critically important subject for MBA students (everyone really) was on display last week. Friday for an enjoyable and fast-paced hour, David, +Mark Traphagen  +Ronnie Bincer   (aka "The Hangout Helper") and +martin shervington  discussed how Google+ is changing behavior on the internet - to the better - https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c0n7nndld5gebbjat1of0dhb124  Even after a full hour, there were many unaddressed questions - reflecting that the session could have continued for the rest of the day. Based on the enjoyable chemistry of these four professionals, most their large audience probably would not have left them had it continued. Come join us Thursday night to continue the discussion. #mktgmba  MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland Explores "The GSS/G+ Connection" at John Brown University2013-11-08 01:30:0062

What does he think about monetizing videos? How can people use it for business? Are there ways to get better YouTube search results? What top tips does he have for people getting started? How does he approach doing analysis? How can we increase our subscribers and why is this useful to do? And many more to follow...

Yifat Cohen87,842*Do you feel like a good parent when you give your child juice for lunch instead of french fries?* I would. *And I would be wrong.* If you're like me, you're probably going through the same parent's dilemma as I am - *how do I keep my child healthy while allowing him to enjoy all the goods out there?* This is such a big thing for me that my step son has named me a healthologist (there's more to it, join the Hangout to get the whole story - it's worth it). *Quality - Quantity - Timing* My daily struggle with what to put in my child's mouth so that he has a healthy diet is shared with many parents, I'm sure. What to put in his lunch box other than peanut butter and jelly? What's for dinner? (my daily nightmare) Did he have enough protein today? Did he eat fruits? He had a cup of juice, does that count as one serving? What about dessert - can he have some? Should it be home made? Sugar or not..? And why do I keep craving sweets after a meal? *Myth and Reality* Dr.@100118793214522675509 is the author of The Step Up Diet: From Scratch...The Quality, Quantity and Timing Solution to Childhood Obesity. In the book, Dr. Katalenas breaks down myths that we use as a basis to our purchasing decisions, like - *Sugar-free or calorie-free drinks are a good option to reduce or maintain weight in children.* *A serving of fruit juice is equivalent to a serving of fruit.* *Some canned pasta dishes contain a whole serving of vegetables and are a good alternative for the busy family.* *As a children’s drink, chocolate milk is equivalent to regular milk.* And the one I'm most guilty of - *Toddlers should take a vitamin supplement every day.* *IF YOU'RE A PARENT CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FAMILY'S MEALS, YOU SHOULD JOIN OUR HANGOUT* Bring your questions to Dr. Katalenas and get a step by step advice on how to get started on healthy meals that you can fit in your busy schedule.

Mick Fealty14,017All across the world, systems are crashing. In banking we've seen debt slicing and long haul internal systems like that of RBS/NatWest/Ulster Bank literally falling apart. In Europe post war notions of solidarity are being stretched to bursting as sovereign nations argue over the degree to which fiscal sovereignty can be shared.   Further afield the Arab nations continue in popular tumult after several generations of acquiescence under varying degrees of autocracy. Yet like Greece, Spain and Portugal to the north - each just one or two generations ahead - the Arab world is finding that democracy does not come in a shiny, ready wrapped box. Even in more settled democracies, once venerable institutions are finding huge problems keeping up with the speed at which their citizens can communicate, not through them but around them.   Why not join our panel this Friday for #DigitalLunch  at the usual time, where we will attempt to serve starters about 1pm and finish before the hour is out? #DigitalLunch: Crashing systems2012-09-28 14:00:007

I don't think that this is far off the mark.

If we ask what consciousness is for, and why it evolved, we may get closer to understanding the nature of our own minds as well as those of other animals

Any other line of enquiry is intellectual twaddle.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah Yes
The HiPPO Bias

HiPPOS crush innovation. What a delightfully on target article.
Via +Kevin Wheeler

Siroker argues that automatically deferring to the most senior person in the room is an ineffective and outdated approach that must be replaced. “In most organizations, they have a command and control culture, where decisions get made at the top of the organization. Typically, whether they’re right or wrong, whether they’re using data or not, it ends up falling on usually the most senior person in the room,” he says.

A better than average dose of realism around the blockchain hype.
Via +John Hagel


The few VCs brave enough to have invested early have seen their startups fail to make returns unless they have accumulated bitcoin in some way. Its most powerful innovation has, instead, been the creation of digital scarcity, and its importance cannot be underestimated. Today this has been applied solely as a digital gold in turbulent economic times and this fundamental misunderstanding has tripped up some of the world’s smartest VCs.

Ecological Design
The Big Picture

Ecological design is about weaving a lot of different aspects of technology, materials (increasingly atoms and bytes as Nicholas Negroponte would say), social, economics and the environment into something coherent and cohesive for the buying public. Which also now includes a lot of tradeoffs with data and price subsidization.

A nice interview with David Orr on some of the nuances behind the philosophy.


There is a caveat here, because about that larger context as it plays out over time we are mostly ignorant about how those bigger systems work over long periods of time. So design is always about margins of error and resilience. It is about not betting it all on a single throw of the dice, and not assuming — as Robert Sinchheimer once put it — that nature does not set traps for unwary species.

Conversation
Is The Key

The pace of change, coupled with an unrivalled opportunity to transform society is going to be unsettling.
It's why I strongly believe this needs to be an ongoing conversation, and a very people driven process.


But it doesn’t have to be this way, Seba and Arbib say. “We see it in parts of the world right now — there is real resistance to this process,” Arbib says. “People want to reach back to some kind of past security, and stop the process. But that’s economically illiterate. What we need to do is retrain and mitigate and provide the social support networks, and we need to at least have a conversation about how we deal with this. And we don’t feel that’s being done on the basis meaningful data that can really show across the economy how this might do.”

State of the Union
Venture Capital

As a developer of strategic business ecosystems, there is much to be learned from the worlds of venture capital.
It's in that spirit that I like this open assessment of the state of venture capital.
A few relevant notes.

There's still a gulf between mom and pop seed funds, and A round funding that the healthy rainforest part of a well conceived ecosystem must address.

Managing VC shouldn't be like managing mature fund portfolios.

There is, by my unscientific observations, a growing awareness that the gill net approach in hoping to catch a unicorn is a broken model.

In short, shared risk and the necessities of exploration, be it in the corporate world or the so called agile entrepreneurial world, is still of foggy environment with enormous opportunities.

Business and society needn't be a dichotomy.

Must we then choose between the goals of the people or the goals of the business, or can the two sides be connected? As we know, passion and commitment are best mobilized in response to personal aspirations, not financial rewards. The aim, however, is not to have a single set of common goals, but complementary goals and a co-created narrative for both!

This is a pretty interesting piece, although the reasoning should be obvious. Apparently there still persists a mindset that there's an online world, and a real world, as two distinct spaces.
Be it the boardroom or the war room, this is a dangerously faulty mindset.
