Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432622658

No Apple Apps For Android, But Tons Of Google Apps For iOS!

This is fascinating from a strategic decision making perspective. Does Apple believe it does not need Play Store/Android to be successful (but Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, FB do)?

Does this mean Apple does not care about its mixed device home users (like mine, we have all of the below operating systems) being happy?

Does this mean Apple worries it will "lose control" if it release things on Android?

Does this mean Apple wants you to play in its playground or f-off?

Does this mean.... something else? What do you think it is?

We are a mixed-device house (just for tablets we have a Surface, iPad and Nexus). We love a mix of apps from the companies below - have faves in each (though only Weather from Y!). Why can't we use the same apps regardless of OS (and pay for them just... more »

The most important words in politics for each month of 2014.

This makes for a sad read (nice visualization though). Partly because this is really what we worried about this year in our political discourse. Partly because it is amazing that these were all in 2014, this actual year, and yet we would have to stretch backwards to remember what some of these were!

You can read the details for each of these here: http://goo.gl/qjYIuF. But before you do, how many of these can you recall being worried/interested/frustrated about this year?

How to Disagree.

This is a image version of the wonderful 2008 article by Paul Graham. The web is littered with back and forths, comments and arguments and counter-arguments. Most would fall the desired level 7. You also see this on TV (tune into Fox News or MSNBC for a dose of depression).

The entire article is well worth a read: http://goo.gl/8C47L1 I promise. If nothing else, going forward you'll recognize what someone who disagrees with you is doing. Maybe you'll recognize what you are doing! :)

Here's an excerpt of the desired level:

Here's an excerpt of the desired level: 

Refuting the Central Point.

The force of a refutation depends on what you refute. The most powerful form of disagreement is to refute someone's central point.

Even as high as DH5 we still sometimes see deliberate dishonesty, as when someone picks out minor points of an argument and refutes those. Sometimes the spirit in which this is done makes it more of a sophisticated form of ad hominem than actual refutation. For example, correcting someone's grammar, or harping on minor mistakes in names or numbers. Unless the opposing argument actually depends on such things, the only purpose of correcting them is to discredit one's opponent.

Truly refuting something requires one to refute its central point, or at least one of them. And that means one has to commit explicitly to what the central point is. So a truly effective refutation would look like:

The author's main point seems to be x. As he says:
<quotation>
But this is wrong for the following reasons...

The quotation you point out as mistaken need not be the actual statement of the author's main point. It's enough to refute something it depends upon.

Four Charts That Defined the World in 2014.

1. Far more people got online. 2. The price of oil plummeted.  3. China’s economy both surpassed, and didn’t surpass, the U.S. economy.  4. The rich keep getting richer; the poor, poorer.

Which one do you think has the biggest long term implications?  I think it is #4. I worry a lot about this fundamental shift in power. It is not just purchasing power, it that blue line carries with it political power, agenda setting power, and so much more. If we don't fix it, there can be major upheaval.

Obesity by Occupation: In the US police, firefighters, and security guards lead the pack!

Surely you are surprised with at least the top three. First, involved in our safety, the second with advice and the third with our well being. And if between 35 - 40% of them are obese, I wonder if at the minimum it sends a mixed message to us. Besides putting our safety and well being at possible risk.

What do you think is up?

On the flip side, it might be surprising that Athletes are higher than Economists, Scientists and Psychologists. But, it might be because you have not seen them around you too much. I'm looking at a group of Economists and Scientists from where I'm sitting, and they need food! (And exercise. :)

Americans torture (rightly or wrongly) captured people.

Some things are not a matter of perspective. But in the mass of analysis floating around, as a citizen it is a valuable thought experiment to flip perspective and see how we would have reacted.

Income Equality: Normal Person Edition: White households median wealth: $141,900, Black household: $11,000.

You did not read that wrong. That is a 13x difference. If you were wondering if race gives you a leg up, you need to look no further.

Primary causes for the difference: Home ownership, income, unemployment, college education and inheritance. 

We should worry about the top 1% or the top 0.1% (income equality has never been starker). But, perhaps a bigger challenge is to worry about the normal groups of people like you and I (and I suspect if you are reading Google+ you are already an outlier). 

This difference did come as a stunning surprise to me, though the graphs below suggest the difference has been stark for a while. Please visit Pew for more context, data and analysis: http://goo.gl/d8fxp8

The Future of Newspapers? Eliminate the front page!

In India the newspapers I saw each week (left outside my hotel door) did not have a front page. Instead, they had a full page ad. This made me really sad. The front page was such a special and honorable place. The words "front page story" meant something. And now.... it's an ad.

Newspapers are in trouble everywhere. They have to innovate to survive. Today I'm sure they can command a premium for the front page. But after a while, it will be yet one more "billboard" for the advertiser and prices will surely drop. Then what?

Maybe I'm too old, too nostalgic. But this really makes me sad.

Channel influence in path to purchase: Benchmarks.

We all know that each channel is a little bit unique in the role it plays in your conversion process. Some tend to introduce people to your brand, others assist in the middle, and others still tend to drive last click conversions.

This poses two challenges. 1. How do you know how your channel/marketing strategy is doing? (Should you shout at people via email?) 2. How do you analyze this behavior?

For #1, please visit this lovely tool from the team at Google that provides benchmarks for many countries for seven different channels: http://goo.gl/6FH5Fp  

You'll see three different channels and their behavior for large sites in the US in the Electronics category in the images below. You can do a lot more analysis on the site above.

I consider myself to be a fairly well informed person, I read a lot and a current affairs junkie. And yet, I've never heard of the first and tenth website below and would never visit the second and fourth (both for quality reasons).

NBC News for some reasons (brand problem?) is hardly high quality news (say like the Guardian, BBC or NYT - all three I love), and I'm surprised they are that high. 

A couple of lessons. 1. If you are like me, you are weird. Clearly the majority is some place else. 2. Am I doing the same thing as people who watch Fox News, only engage with a deeply biased source and an agenda (in my case the BBC, Guardian, NYT and the New Yorker)? 3. Need to visit rest of the sites this month over the holidays!

What do you see for yourself?

No Apple Apps For Android, But Tons Of Google Apps For iOS!

This is fascinating from a strategic decision making perspective. Does Apple believe it does not need Play Store/Android to be successful (but Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, FB do)?

Does this mean Apple does not care about its mixed device home users (like mine, we have all of the below operating systems) being happy?

Does this mean Apple worries it will "lose control" if it release things on Android?

Does this mean Apple wants you to play in its playground or f-off?

Does this mean.... something else? What do you think it is?

We are a mixed-device house (just for tablets we have a Surface, iPad and Nexus). We love a mix of apps from the companies below - have faves in each (though only Weather from Y!). Why can't we use the same apps regardless of OS (and pay for them just... more »

All media is valuable, but we have intent as we will be bigger than 24%. A lot bigger. What do you think?

Without a doubt the best doughnuts in the bay area are at Stan's.

Made by hand, right in front of you, with better ingredients (real raspberry jelly, better tasting chocolate).

Our family favorite is the lemon buttermilk. Lovely combination of texture and flavor. Please try it next time you are in the area.

Opportunity Cost of Gangnam Style

What humanity could achieve if it weren’t galloping in front of computer screens? In the 16,000 years of time spent watching G Style, we could have built 20 Empire State buildings, four Great Pyramids of Giza and... see below.

The flaw in this analysis of course is that it assumes if we did not watch G Style that we would have done something productive. Big flaw!

But fun to think about how much time this represents. And because 2 billion views is not enough, here's Gangnam Style one more time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0

This is an amazing hand painted graph of CO2 levels from the ice age through to the intergalacial period through today.

Such a lovely visualization of data. And it might give our peers who might be skeptical about what humans are doing to the climate a pause, a moment of reflection.

The graph is from this book, please buy it: http://goo.gl/Sjw3va

In good news: The Divorce Surge Is Over, but the Myth Lives On

"About 70 percent of marriages that began in the 1990s reached their 15th anniversary (excluding those in which a spouse died), up from about 65 percent of those that began in the 1970s and 1980s. Those who married in the 2000s are so far divorcing at even lower rates. If current trends continue, nearly two-thirds of marriages will never involve a divorce."

How cool is this! Good job couples!

More here, like women initiate 2/3rds of the divorces or that college educated couples have the lowest divorce rates, etc.: http://goo.gl/llE0BW

No one is focusing on the root causes for US race relations.

A lot of ink has been dedicated to the many deaths by white police officers of african-american citizens. This is undeniably important. I believe that additionally we have to look beyond the now or tactical fixes.

We have a very big problem from the number of african-americans who are getting access to and opportunity for a university education, and the paths that lead to the disproportionate male prison population.

I don't know what we can do to shift the 75% of white citizens are only friends with other white citizens, but I'm sure there is an individual effort we can make. 

We need a big plan. We need hard decisions. We need less decisive politics. We need big, bold, brave action to address the root-causes.

Even if we start today, it will take us more than a generation. If we only focus on fixing the tactical distractions, with every passing years things will get worse. 

If it were up to you, which of these five issues would you address first. What would you have us do?___

I'm as jaded as you can get when it comes to Google's search improvements. I see cute things all the time, it is what I expect Google to do all the time, and think of them as business as usual. 

I was so impressed with the word definition card I saw today. I was looking for the definition of obstreperous.

The card is folded on top of the search results, so you see the definition and example. I clicked it open and this thing, below, of beauty showed up.

I love flow charts (you only have to see my postings on G+, FB), and hence the Origin section was so lovely.

The use over time was quite lovely, going back to 1800! When I'd searched I was wondering why I'd never bumped into it, clearly I've been out of touch.

"Yet Another Study Shows US Satire Programs Do A Better Job Informing Viewers Than Actual News Outlets"

This makes for a depressing read (especially when you factor in reach). This graph is specific to Net Neutrality rules, Fox News leads with the least and John Oliver/HBO leads with most. Broadcast news is pretty close to Fox and CNN and MSNBC are not far behind.

To be fair Fox News is not really in the business of informing its audience about tech issues. But please read the detailed article, http://goo.gl/RrRdg5, on how most "actual news outlets" stink, simply stink, at actually informing their audience. 

Heartbreaking quote...

There is something magical about taking an incredible amount of complexity and presenting it as simply as we possibly can. Magical.

My latest post shares six short stories where I share my favorite visualizations and challenge you to re-think how you present data. 

Treemaps, Sunbursts, Packed Trees, Conditionally Formatted Tables, Predictive Models, Streamgraphs, Stacked "square" Bars, Bubbles and so much more.

If you want to get rid of boring tables and graphs and shift to communicating insights faster, and earn love of your clients (and a lot more money), this is the post for you...

Words of wisdom from the inimitable Stephen Fry below...

I believe digital is a great amplifying mechanism. That is good. We do have to keep our end of the bargain though. 140 characters lower the bar to join the herd and proceeding with a lynching. 

But just because it is easy does not mean we should do it, or we give up the responsibility we have to understand, contextualize, then respond.

Try this: The person/entity you are so outraged by is your sister or brother. Would you still respond the same way?

James Inhofe, the author of the 2012 book "The Greatest Hoax: How Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future", is the new chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. He will lead approving funding for scientific programs in the US.

It is not scary that he is a little skeptical, we all should be. It is that he is so virulently opposed to any other point of view. His view:

"My point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is, to me, outrageous.”

I believe the best minds should be open to an And mindset and not hold an entrenched Or mindset. Religious people or scientists. But most definitely people in positions of power (with a massive capacity to wreck havoc like Mr. Inhofe). 

But. Perhaps Mr. Inhofe is only interested in self political preservation and does not give a small mammals behind about other Americans or indeed humanity.  He simply wants to get re-elected. And he is looking at the chart below.

42% of Americans, in the year 2014 and not 1614, believe God created humans exactly as we have them now in the last 10,000 years. I would use the hashtag omg but that seems like an abuse of the hashtag. 

That number is much higher for Republicans.

All Mr. Inhofe cares about is his people elect him so he can stay in power (the harm he causes is not his business, likely because, scroll back up, he believes God is playing all this out every day of every minute per God's plan).

You know who does not believe in Mr. Inhofe's point of view?

The pope.

The literal manifestation of Jesus Christ himself on earth.

He disagrees.

I wonder how Mr. Inhofe feels about that.

(Fantastic article on Pope Francis and US Republicans: http://goo.gl/ZuftpU)

PS: Let me share with you how deeply proud I am that a majority in this country holds a view of human evolution that is open minded. Go team 58!!!___

Which jobs are disproportionately represented in each state?

This is a fascinating map. It does not show the most common job in a state (that might be store employee). Rather it shows the job with the highest location quotient in each state. 

For example, in NY there are 6.4 times as many Fashion Designers per 10,000 total employed people as in all of the US.

I suppose, if you want to be a motorboat operator you can easily find a job in Florida. If you are a terrible motorboat operator, you might want to move to a different coastal state were likely you will have less competition! 

What is a Conveyor Operator? Is that your state? Do you see a lot of those? And why so many Food Scientists in that one up north?

My favorites have to be: Psychiatric Technicians, Family Therapists, and Butchers!

"What was lost when a child was sexually abused?"

Of all the topics you don't want to read about, systematic child abuse is perhaps top of the list. But if we don't read, if we don't spread awareness, are we a tiny smidgen complicit in not driving change?

Around 540 people have flown in space. Just five hundred forty!

It seems like such a tiny number. But I suppose it makes sense, it takes between $1 and $10 per lb to fly on commercial airlines and round $10,000 per lb for space. But still. There are 7 billion people on earth!

Probability suggests that there is life in other places in the universe. There are untold amazing discoveries to be made. I hope the pace of innovation continues beyond earth orbit (it has been a tragically sad week for space exploration). It is hard to keep investing in things we won't see materialize in our lifetimes.

We need to get beyond big stupid things like bombing countries and small stupid things like petty quarrels. We have the smart people and the smart technology to move humanity forward by investing in lines on this graph. Investment that will pay dividends both for people who choose to... more »

With all the other positive news related to equal rights, there might be a tendency to believe that all is now well. It is not.

One small example is employment. It is stunning to realize that in 30 states you can be fired for being LGBT, and in three for gender identity. This is terrible. 

Awareness is step one. Let us stay on this, all together.

I am still on a post world series high. http://goo.gl/2aeZQb I don't know how our family went to bed. We work up still saying Go Giants when the alarm rang! : ) So proud of the team.

I wanted to take a moment and pay homage to the Kansas City Royals.

They have been gracious hosts and displayed their classiness at every step. Yesterday after the game they changed their famous fountains at Kaufman stadium to Orange.  In the post game interviews I saw the ring of lights in the stadium read "Congratulations to the World Series SF Giants". Not for a moment, for the next hour or so that I saw the interviews!

I've read this morning many stories of the Royals fans in the stadium congratulating the Giants fans as they were all leaving. (Something I did at AT&T part after Game 3 - so lucky to see a World Series game with my son - when the Royals beat us at... more »

Destiny meet #sfgiants.  #sfgiants meet destiny! Yes! Yes! Yes!  #worldseries 

This was a team that was left for dead half way through the season. And today they were, literally, up against history. For five innings they had to be perfect. Perfect!

And they did it! So proud of our +San Francisco Giants!

The butterfly effect: Apple launches iPhone in 2007, Duracell's dead in 2014.

Ok, Duracell's not dead. Growth is slowing down. At two billion dollars in sales, it will take a while for Duracell to die. But. There is zero doubt that the smartphone has reduced the need for us to have many of the devices we normally use alkaline batteries in. And, the trend is irreversible. 

We don't use Cameras as much, ditto for Camcorders. We don't have as many kids toys (including little ones like Leapfrog pad that my kids used). We don't have flashlights in our house (ok, one, with a dead battery). I'm starting to use my Nexus 5 as my TV remote. No need for hotel clocks or radios at home or away. Our children have to buy a TI $130 calculator, I don't understand why I can't give them a old Nexus phone with an app on it.

And all of the above not to mention, I don't need GPS units, I don't need my watch (though Apple is trying to tempt me with one!) and so many other things. 

Did all of these companies worry that Apple is out to kill them? And yet, it is. And, it will. 

It brings up a interesting question. If you were in the calculator, radio, clock, gps, camera, tv remote, children's toys, etc. business, what were you really in the business of?

And, they taught us this in MBA school, if you thought of yourself as being in the business of helping with math, bringing information, helping people get to places, preserve memories, deliver entertainment, would you have been able to survive because your strategy was not limited by the product your company made but rather the customer need it was solving for?

Interesting to think about if you are a business leader. 

And, would that have saved Duracell?

[Minor rant: What would have saved Duracell, and its brother Energizer, is an ability to create a massively better battery! Why does Duracell/Energizer not have the iPhone contract? Corning did for glass but creating a massively unique product for Mr. Jobs.]___

If you are online, and even if you are God herself, there is someone who disagrees with you. And passionately!  Anonymity is empowering.

So how to deal with people who disagree with you? 

I try #2, I am open to #1, sadly I can't ever pull off #7. How about you?

Is this terrible or acceptable?

On the surface it seems terrible. Famous people get away with murder! (And there is more than a grain of truth to that - all around the world.)

But if we are to assume that famous people comprise a tiny percentage of the world, it is good for the most part the justice system works. 

And famous people serve as role-models (via their high punishment) for not saying terrible things.

"Do you support increased gun control?"

This map delivers optimism. Most of my fellow citizens (especially in states with large populations) are open to sensible gun control.

To be clear, we are not talking about banning guns here. People who want to have 'em and love 'em can do so with sensible gun control.

Less deeper purple (NO!) than the NRA or the US Congresspeople might lead you to believe, and lots of green (yes, sensible).
