Ғ ΜіснæL Sŧuŧz4,508I rarely do this...In fact, I haven't done a circle share in over a year, and I've never shared this one. But... It's #AmbienTime , and the thing about the folks in this circle: they've all paid their dues with respect to my #AmbienTime  moments.These are the people who, with one or two exceptions, have known me the longest here on G+. They also happen to be the list of people who are either overly medicated, or underly medicated, because they still haven't uncircled me yet, even after all this time. I keep checking, but so far none of these people has gotten tired of my crap enough to go through the effort yet. I don't have the heart to tell them that this suffering won't erase all their past misdeeds and sins, and won't get them into heaven.I spend 99% of my G+ time in this one circle. And one of the people here was insane enough to actually marry me.It's a very diverse group, about as diverse as you can get. Each, though, is wonderfully broken, like magnificent shattered stained-glass murals, each reflects the same sun that alights upon us all, but in uniquely amazing ways that, with the passage of the hours and the seasons, brings a new dazzling display every time I see them online.If these are the only people you ever circle on G+, you will be hooked on G+ for life. And it's proof-positive that quality kicks the crap out of quantity every day of the week.This is my little way of saying, "Thank you" to all of you guys for putting up with me for the last few years. And I take serious pride in knowing that I have the rockin'est circle on G+.+Sque Morgan , up there at the 1:00 spot was my very first friend here. We don't talk much these days, I miss that, but we've both been going through some crap these last few months. I think she's responsible for my meeting about half this circle, people like +Eric Johnson, for example. And I know that after Sque (like a few days) came +Karen Schumacher  and +Debra Dayton , and then +Alvin Stearns and then +Shawn Holster, who I was sure was going to defrock me last month when he announced his annual spring circle cleaning...+Darryl Mouzone I met through an experiment. I decided to add every "suggestion" that G+ made for one week, and he was the only one that made in to this circle, which made the whole exercise a totally worth-while thing to do.2014-09-23 03:17:43431706

It's Time for Me to Change My Latitude.

My wife and I have been wanting to move to Florida and we finally had to pull the trigger.  Well, she pulled the trigger, sold the house, and now I have to follow or live in a motel :)

I will be consulting for ChaCha, so much of my work will be the same for now.

If you are local and interested, I'm going to have a Last Lunch at Henry's at Noon on Thursday the 18th of December. If you know me from ChaCha or Social Media, feel free to come by!

Appears that "conspiratorial mindset" is the biggest factor in resistance to vaccination.

Left-wing motivation against vaccines:
* distrust of corporations that make vaccines and fear that their products aren't safe/trusted

Right-wing motivation against vaccines:
* distrust of the CDC, government that claims vaccines are safe

Thanks for the interesting analysis, +Chris Mooney

Deep Learning analysis of Wikipedia Topics: "allow[s] us to think these thoughts that were previously unthinkable."

A map of Wikipedia

>  A large fraction of Wikipedia’s articles fall into a few broad topics: sports, music (songs and albums), films, species, and science. I wouldn’t have guessed that! Why, for example, is sports so massive? Well, it seems like many individual athletes, teams, stadiums, seasons, tournaments and games end up with their own articles – that adds up to a lot of articles! Similar reasons lead to the large music, films and species clusters.

This map of Wikipedia presents important structure on multiple scales. While, there is a large cluster for sports, there are sub-clusters for individual sports like tennis. Films have a separate cluster for non-Western films, like bollywood. Even very fine grained topics, like human proteins, are separated out!
...

Wikipedia categories can be quite unintuitive and much broader than you expect. For example, every human is included in the category applied ethics because humans are in people which is in personhood which is in issues in ethics which is in applied ethics.
...

This style of visualization feels important to me. Using deep learning, we’ve made a visualization, an interface, for humans to interact with Wikipedia as a whole. I’m not claiming that it’s a great interface. I’m not even sure I think it is terribly useful. But it’s a starting point and a proof of concept.

Why not just use dimensionality reduction by itself? If we had just used dimensionality reduction, we would be visualizing geometric or topological features of the Wikipedia data. Using deep learning to transform the data allows us to visualize the underlying structure, the important variations – in some cases, the very meaning of the data – instead.

I think that high-quality representations have a lot of potential for users interacting with complicated data, going far beyond what is explored here. The most natural direction is machine learning: once you are in a high-quality representation, many normally difficult tasks can be accomplished with very simple techniques and comparatively little data. With a curated collection of representations, one could make some really exciting machine learning accessible, although it would carry with it challenges for end users and the producers of representations.

Interactive map of Wikipedia: http://colah.github.io/posts/2015-01-Visualizing-Representations/big_vis/wiki.html

// Harvesting some good bits from +Christopher Olah's excellent article on Deep Learning. The interactive map linked above lets you identify categories in Wikipedia and how they compare. 

I'm absolutely fascinated with his discussion of different representations for modeling a complex whole. I feel the importance of these representations too. Because they capture the deep structure of the system, there's an important sense in which these representations don't simplify or idealize the systems they represent. Rather, they capture them as they are, but in a format we can grasp and tinker with on our own terms. 

Christopher engages these issues a bit, quoting Bret Victor and Richard Hamming on tools for thinking unthinkable thoughts:

> When Hamming says there could be unthinkable thoughts, we have to take that as “Yes, but we build tools that adapt these unthinkable thoughts to the way that our minds work and allow us to think these thoughts that were previously unthinkable.”

// The discussion reminds me of Ian Hacking's question, "Do we see through a microscope?" http://goo.gl/JK1lLM, http://goo.gl/xsPHC5

In which he quotes a Henry Powers poem from 1664, In commendation of ye microscope

'Of all the Inventions none there is Surpasses
the Noble Florentine's Dioptrick Glasses
For what a better, fitter guift Could bee
in this World's Aged Luciosity.

To help our Blindnesse so as to devize
a paire of new & Artificial eyes
By whose augmenting power wee now see more
than all the world Has ever dounn before'

Cr*p. SEO won't save you. You have to do actual marketing as well. The good news? I know how to do both.

Correlation, SEO, Sales and Moustaches. (NEW)
It's got it all!

Thanks +Martin Holmes for the email. And +Rand Fishkin for the quality post, as always.

Including:
"Thousands of hard-to-identify, individual signals, mashed together through machine learning, are most likely directly responsible for your competitor's website outranking yours on a particular search query. But even if you had a list of the potential inputs and the mathematical formulas Google's process considers most valuable for that query's ranking evaluation, you'd be little closer to competently beating them. You may feel smugly satisfied that your own SEO knowledge exceeded that of your competitor, or of their SEO consultants, but smug satisfaction does not raise rankings. In fact, I think some of the SEO field's historic obsession with knowing precisely how Google works and which signals matter is, at times, costing us a broader, deeper understanding of big-picture marketing*.

Time and again, I've seen SEO professionals whom I admire, respect, and find to be brilliant analysts of Google's algorithms lose out to less-hyper-SEO-aware marketers who combine that big picture knowledge with more-basic/fundamental SEO tactics. While I certainly wouldn't advise anyone to learn less about their field nor give up their investigation of Google's inner workings, I am and will continue to strongly advise marketers of all specialties to think about all the elements that might have a second-order or purely correlated effect on Google's rankings, rather than just concentrate on what we know to be directly causal."___Cr*p.

"Depression is the inability to construct a future." - Rollo May

Thinking about some of the Millennials I have analyzed and interacted with via ChaCha, this rings true.

It's hard to imagine a person so distraught that they cannot see a path to a future worth living. But it is happening in greater and greater numbers.

“If I were running a more hard-news-oriented media company and I wanted to inform people about Uganda, first, I would look it up and find out exactly what’s going on there. Then I would find a few really poignant images or story lines, ones that create a lot of resonant emotion, and I would make those into a short video—under three minutes—with clear, simple words and statistics. Short, declarative sentences. And at the end I’d give people something they can do, something to feel hopeful about.” - Spartz

I wonder... Could you use Air Drop to promote your business?

What Are Teens Using Instead Of Snapchat And Instagram?
Airdrop
Wait, they aren't using any network? 
Correct!

Leave it to teens to find uses for technology that companies (and in this case, schools) never imagined. And you thought you were cutting edge sending your presentation files between your Mac and your iPad, ha!

The kids who think about the what ifs when they use current technology, are our new inventors. Never have the ones with their imaginations still intact had this much emerging technology so easily within their grasp.

I LOVE Barry Eisler's awesome fiction. Almost as much as his sharp and insightful commentary.

cc +Alex Grossman +Alex Schleber 

Guest blogging today with Freedom of the Press Foundation:

"Journalist Barrett Brown is expected to be sentenced by a judge today in a highly controversial case brought by the Justice Department. The below excerpt is an adapted and updated version of the foreword to Barrett's most recent book, written by author Barry Eisler.

"If you don’t believe America has political prisoners, you’ve never heard of Barrett Brown. Which would be a shame on several fronts, because you’d be missing out on one of America’s most fearless and talented reporters, and on an object lesson regarding just how far the government is willing to go to suppress journalism and intimidate journalists.

"I first came across Barrett in a 2009 issue of Vanity Fair, where he had written an article called “Thomas Friedman’s Five Worst Predictions.” The article perfectly showcased what I subsequently learned were the Barrett Brown trademarks: iconoclastic insight; hilarious wit, ranging from the dry to the outrageous; a broad and deep frame of reference; incisive argument; complete fearlessness about offending anyone deserving of offense; an abiding sense of citizenship and patriotism.

"I was wowed by the article—both its substance, and, even rarer among political writers, its style. I sent Barrett an email..."

It's Time for Me to Change My Latitude.

My wife and I have been wanting to move to Florida and we finally had to pull the trigger.  Well, she pulled the trigger, sold the house, and now I have to follow or live in a motel :)

I will be consulting for ChaCha, so much of my work will be the same for now.

If you are local and interested, I'm going to have a Last Lunch at Henry's at Noon on Thursday the 18th of December. If you know me from ChaCha or Social Media, feel free to come by!

Brand + Content + Social = success. Only IF you get the order right.

Getting Social Media Marketing in Its Proper Place

My latest column for +Marketing Land 

I make a case that the reason a lot of social media marketing experts and gurus (as well as internal brand managers) are losing credibility is they don't know how to properly position social media in a brand's overall marketing strategy.

I walk through the increasing barrage of (oversimplified, I think) critiques that social media marketing is worthless, and then show you how to build a well-ordered marketing strategy where social media actively enhances and supports your whole marketing effort.

Read it at >> http://stonet.co/SMMHorse

(Some of you will recognize this as an expansion of my recent presentation at the State of Search conference. The deck from that talk is at http://stonet.co/SMMWaste)

These feedback loops—or maybe we should call them “feed-in” loops, given that they’re based on participation—make visible the payoffs of peer-based collective action and endow people with a sense of power. In doing so, they strengthen norms around collaboration and make the case that we can do just fine without the old power middlemen that dominated the 20th century.

Agents to the top programmers: 10x claims to represent digital “rock stars”

Cool concept. Because the chance of getting a job with a digital resume today is extremely remote.  

The job-matching process is broken:  1) Finding talent you can trust generally falls back to personal recommendations. 2) Finding A players amid the piles of applications is impossible, 3) using HR and skill keywords as a filter throws out as much good as it discovers.

Wether or not this is a legally viable usage of a grand jury, this seems to me like an extremely bad tactic.

Not just for children: Ideas to improve your critical thinking.

I never thought of it in this way, but this is EXACTLY how I most enjoy interacting with children.  Challenging them to think and imagine.

Awesome, +Sophie Wrobel. Via the inimitable +Max Huijgen.

How to get a child to think critically

This article contains illustrative examples which resonate to my personal educational experience throughout school - I remember how much I would detest all the test questions that I got wrong because I answered 'What word means .....' with a synonym of the vocabulary list word instead of that word itself, or because I had written out a fraction instead whereas the answer key rounded to two decimals, or because my experimental measured lab value was not close enough to the expected experimental value, and so on.

But the bigger and more immediate question remains unanswered by the article, if the current system doesn't teach children how to think critically, how do we teach those children critical thinking? 

For starters, I'd humbly propose a few suggestions:

1) Do misuse everything you can.
Learning goal: Do not take anything for granted.
Why can't a bed be an ironing board? Why can't a cardboard box turn into a toy bridge? Or a diaper be an emergency sunshade? All is well, until the kids reach kindergarten and start getting told off by the teachers on what is and isn't acceptable, and now they tell me what I should be doing and are continually astounded that whatever alternative I'm doing actually works. Yes, Mama is crazy... and not a bit ashamed of it.

2) Do try out stupid things.
Learning goal: Test things out yourself.
Why not eat a lemon together? Go out in the rain without a raincoat? Stick a balloon on a needle? Microwave a CD? Try to fix a broken radio with Google's help instead of taking it to the repair shop? The result is sudden, golden insights bringing very diverse topics together: 'Mama, going out in the rain is just like taking a shower, so I don't have to wash my hair tonight!' (No, Mama did not teach that!)

3) Do make silly excuses.
Learning goal: Create inventive and fluent arguments.
Yes, my son does rolls his eyes when I offer completely outrageous reasons. And laughs when I challenge him to test the reasons himself (he knows better than to believe everything I say). But he also started answer commands such as 'Time to go to bed' as tactfully as any politician asked to give a spontaneous statement on a controversial topic.

If you are only counting conversions, you are doing it wrong.

By focusing on the present moment and making it unmistakably memorable, marketers can stand out amongst the noise and take the customer one step closer to the next major milestone.

Echo? I love the play Amazon is making here. Truly some out-of-the phone-thinking.

What Echo does is define a new type of interaction that may be more appealing than asking questions to your phone, a practice many people tell me they do not like and would not adopt.

It also more fully defines the always-on metaphor.  While phones like the Moto X and a plugged in iPhone do that, its doesn't quite feel right.

I think Amazon will have a hit with this if they can deliver before Christmas, because its a great GIFT.  Even if you wouldn't, yet, get it for yourself, it is intriguing and priced really well for what it does.

One thing that will likely hurt Amazon unless that can solve it quick is an inability to answer ALL the questions a user might have. I think this is what really doomed Siri - it can really only answer a few things well.  In order toca... more »

I think this is what really doomed Siri - it can really only answer a few things well.  In order to capture the market, in order to really get people into the mode of voice ordering, Echo needs to be a go-to device, not a go-to-for-a-couple-of-things device.

Unfortunately, that's pretty hard to do if all they do is wire in feeds and build out knowledge graphs. +Stone Temple Consulting has some proof of that if you look closely.  Even as Google Now wins, it only answers ~50% of random questions well (coverage * precision): https://www.stonetemple.com/great-knowledge-box-showdown/  

For any random question, there is an algorithmic barrier, at 50% to 60% ‘intelligence,’ beyond which current cognitive intelligence and semantic technologies cannot travel.
