Dr. John Cassone12,100Dr. John's Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. This circle changes each time I share it based on how people are engaging and sharing content.This is not a megacircle.People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:►   I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: ►   Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.►  I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:►   When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. ►   Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. ►   Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-09-07 19:22:331921015

Daniel Mihai Popescu52,356They are the Survivors, a circle I'm going to share more often, because it has its own dynamic :)I hope you receive the notification this time, and if you receive it, it means you are in the circle, so you are not required to do anything. Just a "+1" from your part will be greatly appreciated, there's no need to spend your precious time with sharing or commenting.For non-members, I think you have to figure out on your own what to do, because usually I don't promise anything, I'm don't barter my circles membership. If you add the circle, it's definitively your gain, so I strongly suggest you to do so. The circle's title is not in vain, it really suggests the circle's dynamic. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  This, like all of my other circles, is an homage to you.Thank you very much for being my friends!2014-06-26 14:46:19412442853

21C Platforms: Semantic Search and Find

"In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people."
-- John Kellden

A digital space is where things can be connected with people and vice-versa. It is a semiosphere that includes a common ground, a findable, accessible common ground. There's lots of ways this can be instantiated, rendered, designed and developed, using a whole host of combined metaphors:

valueweb, ecosystem, environment, digital village, digital community, digital platform, digital graph, digital (knowledge) market

What is common to all these metaphors is

perspectives, languages, tools

The perspectives can be kept vibrant, meaningful and conducive to cocreation of value, by spending enough time and attention on what ontology co-evolves with our perspectives. Out of a requisite variety of... more »

Gaia: Home Brewed Fusion

It'll be very interesting to see what future societies we will choose.

Still far away. Wish it was closer : The race for fusion is a long and arduous one. Time frames are in decades and funding, economics and politics all play a large part in how these progress. I had made a couple of posts earlier about fusion, I'm linking to them all here. Pictured below is the General Fusion reactor which looks to mimic the conditions in a star. The pistons are supposed to fire at the same time, creating a shock wave and implosion in the center....

Fusion : In principle, building a fusion reactor is just a matter of imitating the Sun. Take the appropriate isotopes of hydrogen or other light elements, add heat to strip the electrons from the nuclei and form an ionized plasma, then compress that plasma and hold it together for a while, allowing the nuclei to fuse and convert a portion of their mass into energy. But in practice, trying to mimic a star leads to horrendous engineering problems: for example, hot plasma trapped in a magnetic field tends to twist and turn like an enraged snake struggling to escape.

Tri Alpha : The world's most secretive nuclear-fusion company does not even have a website. Instead of using the doughnut-shaped 'tokamak' reactor that has dominated fusion-energy research for more than 40 years, Tri Alpha is testing a linear reactor that it claims will be smaller, simpler and cheaper — and will lead to commercial fusion power in little more than a decade.

ITER : Is now dogged by delays of funding and politics, its well beyond its deadline and delayed by a further 11 years. With over $50 Billion in funding and an open date, ITER may be delayed till 2050.

General Fusion : General Fusion has demonstrated the idea with a small-scale device, using pistons driven by explosives, and has raised about $50 million from venture capitalists and the Canadian government. If the company can win another $25 million or so, Laberge says, it will build a beefier implosion system that can compress the plasma to the levels needed for fusion — perhaps within the next two years. Despite such optimism, Dean estimates that it will be at least a decade, maybe a lot longer, before any alternative fusion company produces a working power plant. There is simply too much new technology to be demonstrated, he says. “I think these things are well motivated, and should be supported — but I don't think we're on the verge of a breakthrough.”

21C Literacies: Kid's Experiments

ht +Max Huijgen 

Introducing my new book containing a year's worth of kid's experiments!
Available in English and German

I'm proud to announce that I've now published my first book - a book filled with illustrated experiments for preschoolers, one experiment for each week of the year. For the past two years, I've been doing weekly experiments with my kids, and compiled their favorite experiments into this book.

The book is divided into 12 chapters, each of which focuses on a particular theme and lasts for a month. The experiments are designed to inspire the kids to start asking questions, try out the impossible, and most of all have fun exploring natural phenomena! Some of the all-time favorites for inspiration:

- Homemade ice cream to explore how salt affects the melting point of water
- Racing toys to explore friction
- Homemade microscope to see what a cell is

The book is available in English and German on amazon.de or directly from the publisher:

21C Platforms: Semantic Search and Find

"In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people."
-- John Kellden

A digital space is where things can be connected with people and vice-versa. It is a semiosphere that includes a common ground, a findable, accessible common ground. There's lots of ways this can be instantiated, rendered, designed and developed, using a whole host of combined metaphors:

valueweb, ecosystem, environment, digital village, digital community, digital platform, digital graph, digital (knowledge) market

What is common to all these metaphors is

perspectives, languages, tools

The perspectives can be kept vibrant, meaningful and conducive to cocreation of value, by spending enough time and attention on what ontology co-evolves with our perspectives. Out of a requisite variety of perspectives, a sufficiently open, transparent and diverse space, people, participants join, by languaging the ontologies and taxonomies in place, eg the platform structures.

Once there's provisional ontologies in play, people can search and find stuff, out of which a knowledge market. This market can then be augmented, amplified, by choosing a set of heuristics and algorithms that enables the participants to perform generative assessment, making good on the

"In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people."

creating lots of different virtuous cycles:

conversation, transaction, action

where action is the emergent characteristics of the organizing metaphor, structure, process and platform in use.

One of the conclusions here, that most people have yet to realize, is that the primary tools are the heuristics and algorithms.

Transforming our own ontologies is hard. Coming to grips with all the heuristics and algorithms, while a bit simpler, is still not a walk in the park. Which leaves the middle: language.

We can at all times define a provisional common space:

resonance, understanding, resilience, reach

A bit simplified, resonance is how we learn how to play well with our audience turned increasingly cocreators of both the brand and the value.

Understanding is here referring to our own neocortex and how it is currently in a state of transition, from old, increasingly obsolete 20C metaphors, to a new 21C set.

Resilience is how we as individuals traverse all the Here Be Dragons parts of our maps, our 21C Roadmap, and live to tell our tales. There and Back Again.

Last but not least, reach is how we increasingly learn to rely on others:

"In a network, the best place to store knowledge is in other people."

and also, how we learn how to play well with our own analog heuristics and (eventually) our own preferred platform algorithms.


Out of the Conversation Community, a few of us

+Doug Breitbart  +Henk Hadders  +Joachim Stroh  +Ron Scroggin  +John Kellden  have launched a

21C Roadmap
Where our first prototype service is called Knowledge Expeditions, where we use Mt Everest (Sagarmatha in Nepalese) as a metaphor for how we need to climb, how we need to figure out different, more resonant wayfinding, in order to:

- find common ground
- align with our own collective intelligence
- bring back select insights

collective, collaborative as well as individual gifts, from the mountain to the other villagers.

There's a growing number of Knowledge Expedition participants:

21C Alumni

KE #4
+Leif Edvinsson +Bryan Alexander +Tracee Vetting Wolf +Kate Griffiths +Lacerant Plainer 

KE #3
+Marcy Luikart +Becky Coleman +Doug Breitbart +Jan Friman

KE #2
+Susan Cox +Farinaz Parsay +Terry Brown +Volker Harbecke 

all have contributed towards finding common ground - through, climbing, through sharing stories, out of which invaluble insights, when enacting a virtuereal environment - contingencies embraced and Roerich moments celebrated - in and through an Immersive, Participatory Sensemaking approach.

We're learning as we speak and climb about:

resonance, understanding, resilience, reach

including figuring out the necessary roped paths and sufficient common ground for us to be able to make good and full use of whatever combinations of

- collective intelligence
- individual perspectives
- resonant language and
- enactivity tools

an ongoing learning, innovating, offering and call to participation for a growing number of stakeholders.

In KE #5, we will try out Portals. We don't fully know what will happen when we go through these portals, which is precisely as it should be - not knowing is half the fun. The other half is the small group of KE participants who will join the Expedition and board the Feynman Airstream, later this autumn.

Needless to say, any and all members in the Conversation Community are more than welcome to join in any which capacity, both as Knowledge Expedition participants, and in the larger quest, the search for common ground. It's simple really - Mt Everest, Sagarmatha, remains an integral part of Gaia - and Sagarmatha asks one and only one question of all the participants:

"Who are you?"

None of us know the answers with certainty - what we do know is, it makes a difference if we help each other figure out good enough stories turned 21C Roadmaps, in order to take our next steps.

Or, simplified a bit: think Venn diagram, where two circles overlap forming a pattern that connects (the dots, context, conversation, dialogue, metalogue, G Bateson). These two circles are

search, find

We are getting pretty good at cards, semantic entities, aka search. We've still some wayfinding to do, before we're found. Until we do, the Hero's Quest, the World Wild Web explorations continues.


Ello Manifesto    http://goo.gl/LXlwT8
Your social network is owned by advertisers.

Every post you share, every friend you make, and every link you follow is tracked, recorded, and converted into data. Advertisers buy your data so they can show you more ads. You are the product that’s bought and sold.

We believe there is a better way. We believe in audacity. We believe in beauty, simplicity, and transparency. We believe that the people who make things and the people who use them should be in partnership.

We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment. Not a tool to deceive, coerce, and manipulate — but a place to connect, create, and celebrate life.

You are not a product.___

Sagarmatha Café: Enaction Moments 
At the small movie right next to the café, +Jon Chef  +Ron Scroggin  and  +John Kellden  are watching:

COHERENCE - Official Theatrical Trailer (HD)

"The script abounds with small details and fleeting conversations that initially appear to be meaningless filler, but ultimately reappear in various forms that completely recontextualize their precedents."

Sagarmatha Café Jukebox: Jethro Tull Remixed

Let me bring you high on a climb,
to make you see much further, than you would know;
Dancing through all wind and snow,
all our efforts, turned to flow,
hold us steady as we go:

Join the chorus, if you can;
it'll make of us, a merry band...

Let us find our voice and our name,
prayer flags and stanzas clear through windy maze -
To still our thirst and heal our gaze,
our stumbling turned a newfound zest,
as we take small steps along our quest:

Life's long winding road is here -
we'll climb along in winded cheer!

Let us bring back all things refined,
ancient chimes and new songs for all villagers -
Greetings given 'round the bend,
a movement clear beyond pretend,
what once a stranger, now turned friend...

A traveller through these wasteful times -
with heartfelt prose  -   enacting rhymes...

It's perfectly possible for you to sing along, once you know the tune:
Songs from the Wood
Jethro Tull- Songs from the Wood


In all human endeavours, there's contingencies

Procol Harum - Wreck Of The Hesperus

And all for nothing quite in vain was hope forever tossed
No thoughts explained, no moments gained, all hope forever lost
One moment's space, one moment's final fall from grace
Burnt by fire, blind in sight, lost in ire...

Intense alchemical heat and pressure, our desires essentialized, turned imaginal cells, turned seed. All good.

21C Literacies: Visual Thinking

Mapmaking.

Fisk’s maps offer a real sense of fragility. They collapse natural and human time in a way that is rather poetic, as the cities and small towns overlaid on the river’s historic meanders remind you that everything is wiped away when you think at a geological scale. Like Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem ‘Ozymandias,’ it reminds us of our hubris and that everything we spend our lives creating will eventually fall victim to the ravages of time.
~ Bill Rankin, Professor of Mathematics and History at Yale University, discusses Harold Fisk's 1944 geologic maps of the meanders of the Mississippi and why they are in his top five

They are one of my top maps, too. Enjoy Rankin's thoughtful insights on his top 5 favorites and visit his website http://www.radicalcartography.net/ to learn why maps are so important. Thank you, +CityLab ___21C Literacies: Visual Thinking

This almost guarantees good graph traversal. Obviously, me being somewhat prolific myself, I could be seen as biased. Still, over time, the "out loud" builds trust.

Transparency & Depression

We're still only in the beginning stages of understanding the relationship between our selves and our digital selves.

Rand Fishkin on His Year of Depression & the Road Out

Whenever I want to point someone to an example of someone who takes "transparency" and "authenticity" out of the buzzword category and into reality, I invariably point them to former +Moz CEO +Rand Fishkin.

Most people who have heard of Rand think of him as one of the most successful and beloved people in digital marketing. They would probably be shocked to learn that he's struggled with serious, health-debilitating depression caused by beating himself up over a series of business failures at Moz.

Depression is why, in the last 18 months, I blogged the least I have since starting my career. It’s almost certainly part of why my engagement in all sorts of things has suffered. It’s why I could hardly bear to be away from Geraldine for more than a day or two at at time. And, it’s a big part of why I stepped down as Moz’s CEO.

That depression, I believe, stems from shame. I was and remain, ashamed of myself due to a series of wholly avoidable missteps I made at Moz. Brad likes to say that every company he and the Foundry team have ever invested in go through tough times and most have near-death experiences before they emerge into their mature form. Even with my darkest lenses on, I can’t say that Moz was ever “near-death” in the past couple years. But I can say that we – that I – made dumb move after dumb move, and when those moves revealed themselves to be dumb, I pushed us to double-down on them, compounding our problems. By sharing that story I hope to, as I’ve done in posts like this before, offload my pain through transparency and, hopefully, help save a few of you reading this post from making the same mistakes.

Rand's post is a poignant and instructive reminder that you can never be a real leader unless you are willing to face, call out, and deal realistically with your own demons.

This is a long read but well worth every minute you'll spend on it.___Transparency & Depression

We're still only in the beginning stages of understanding the relationship between our selves and our digital selves.

From a certain perspective it is oxymoronic to even consider engineering serendipity (the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way) in search. By its very definition, the moment you engineer “chance occurrences” they stop being chance occurrences and become, instead, part of the engineered algorithms of ‘ordinary’ search.

This shows that the argument about serendipity is deep and it has both a philosophical and a practical angle. It is also, intrinsically linked to semantic search and, as it happens will also affect your marketing.

Now, I confess to an affinity on this particular subject because from an engineering point of view it combines in search everything that fascinates us: the ability of machines to think like humans, our ability to code machines to understand what delights us, humans, the ability of search to pull in data in a way that is not only highly contextual in terms of a search query but also relevant from a very human point of view. You could say, as a matter of fact, that programming serendipitous discovery is akin to the Turing test of search. If search algorithms successfully pass that test every time, we’re into the realm of intelligent search.

The reason I am writing about it here however is because beyond the philosophical implications and engineering challenges that serendipity in search presents us with, it also offers opportunities in terms of visibility across the web and marketing.

It all has to do, of course, with you finding your target audience. Some of that audience you know where to find and you know who it includes. But there is always a missing segment of that audience that you cannot reach because you:

• May not have the budget to target it cost-effectively
• Suspect that it’s so widely scattered that it’s unrealistic to they and target it
• May not know how to find it
• Did not know it existed

Many of those in that missing segment of your target audience will be unaware of your existence or may not know that you have what they are looking for.

Squaring that exact circle is what serendipitous discovery in search is designed to do. This is a unique feature of semantic search.

Programmed Serendipity is a Semantic Search Issue
In pre-Humming Bird days serendipity in search was provided by the usual stumbling as we went from one little blue link to another, one page in search to another, checking each page for context and relevance.

Clearly, serendipity is not about just adding random information on a search page hoping that some of that will resonate with the end user who will then find it “delightful”. That’s just adding noise and spam, not value. In experiments carried out by both Yahoo and Microsoft research the experimenters found that “Syntactic but not semantic connections introduce unwanted noise and errors”.

This is something Google understands well. Google search now is fully semantic. When an algorithm checks context and relevance there is a risk that it will spin in ever tightening circles, narrowing the search horizon down in each case until, eventually, search becomes a blinkered, tunnel-vision affair. You might argue that it would then satisfy, perhaps, our need for a quick answer to a pressing problem but it would hardly do justice to our ability to ‘see’ our world through the information we uncover. In plain English search could become efficient but dull.

Researchers working at Microsoft Research tested to see if that were true and discovered that personalization in search results tends to increase serendipity. In particular they mentioned how “Collaborative filtering systems identify interesting content by matching individuals with other, similar, individuals.” In Google search Google+ is the ultimate “collaborative filtering system”. The ability to develop and then define a personal network of contacts that allows content to surface that has a strong feel of serendipity is directly attributed to what Yahoo researchers call the “entity network”.

Basically in order to successfully engineer serendipity in search requires that beyond the precise answers that search delivers it also delivers a subset that is drawn on entirely different ranking parameters the success of which is based on whether the results are:

• Surprising (how unexpected they are)
• Useful (how related they are to the searcher’s original intent) 
• Empowering (do they contribute to the domain expertise of the searcher)

These three become the strict requirements of a serendipitous find. As a Microsoft Research paper on the subject put it: “When a user with no a priori intentions interacts with a node of information and acquires useful information, then serendipitous information retrieval occurs. The success of serendipitous discovery is not just the find itself, but being able or willing to do something with it, so that users get more insight and can enhance the domain expertise.”

While there are many different ways to try and program serendipity in search they all have some common characteristics and it is in that commonality that we begin to understand the governing mechanics of serendipity.

Here’s what makes serendipity work: 
• Enhanced metadata - not just about the subject topic but also its popularity, importance and context. The appeal it has for certain people and their engagement patterns with it. Detailed sentiment analysis plays a key role here.

• Entity networks – Ontologies (the grouping items and topics by subject), data-rich content, identity-defining online activities, all help hyper-contextualize content and personal connections and create high-trust mini-networks around specific interests or topics. These then become the first port of call of search when it comes to looking for material that will help broaden the search horizon but can still meet the requirements the three strict requirements of a serendipitous find. For Google, Google+ is probably one of the easiest ways it has to develop high-trust entity networks around shared interests. This is also why personalization in search, rather than narrowing down the search horizon, actually broadens it, enriching the available search content by the particular likes and affinities of those we are strongly connected to in our personal networks.

• Temporal Characteristics – Recency in content, trendiness (sometimes referred to as topicality) and novelty (or uniqueness) are all characteristics that serendipitous programming looks for in contextual content it is about to surface.

• Quality – This is perhaps the least surprising characteristic as Google has been insistent about quality for a long time. Content that is of real value to the end user has the best chance of surfacing as a serendipitous find in search. 

Proving the point of serendipity in Google+ (and Google in general) is a video that was surfaced by +martin shervington  where Google Chairman Eric Schmidt talks about serendipity, amongst other things at Zeitgesit Europe, 2013: http://goo.gl/PAAmWh

What You Need to Know
Great as all this may be to know its real value is when we go past the geek factor and actually ask the question “How can I take advantage of serendipitous discovery in search to surface my content to a wider audience and find people who are usually hard to reach?”

Here is what you need to do:

• Have a data-dense presence on the web that makes it easy for Google to extract entities from your content. Make sure, for instance, that your website, your Google+ presence and your Twitter account are easily mined from your online activities. Ensure that content you share is surrounded by enough high-trust data (links to trustworthy sources, cites authoritative websites, etc) for Google to feel that it’s an important piece of information that must be included in search.

• Deliver value in every item of content you create that helps bolster your online identity (see point above).

• Create wide networks of online contacts that you use to find content (people you follow on Google+, Facebook and Twitter, for instance).

• Generate engagement in your content through the social web. Commenting, sharing and ‘smaller’ interactions such as Re-Tweets, Likes and +1s all have an impact that becomes part of the “social proof” of a piece of content.

• Add context – don’t just create (or curate) great content. Add the kind of deep, detailed information that helps it link to trends, establish its fresheness and allows the end-user to establish a sense of its value in relation to the time of its publication.

• Create content that resonates at an emotional level with your audience. Comments, their frequency, the type of comment (positive or negative) and its length, who made it, when and in what context are all signals that serendipitous discovery in search can use to help serve your content to a searcher.

Bottom line, content that’s created only for marketing, that fails to support and enhance your digital identity, that ignores the emotional touchpoints and needs of its prospective audience and which has no impact or relation with anything that’s happening across the web (or even across our social networks and affects us) is unlikely to do very much for you in terms of search, branding or reputation. Follow the six points above however and you will find your business getting attention from the most unexpected quarters at almost negligible cost to you.

Sagarmatha Café, ep 11: Wreck of the Hesperus

Let me bring you high on a climb,
to make you see much further, than you would know;
Dancing through all wind and snow,
all our efforts, turned to flow,
hold us steady as we go:

Join the chorus, if you can;
it'll make of us, a merry band...

Let us find our voice and our name,
prayer flags and stanzas clear through windy maze -
To still our thirst and heal our gaze,
our stumbling turned a newfound zest,
as we take small steps along our quest:

Life's long winding road is here -
we'll climb along in winded cheer!

Let us bring back all things refined,
ancient chimes and new songs for all villagers -
Greetings given 'round the bend,
a movement clear beyond pretend,
what once a stranger, now turned friend...
