Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130

My apartment complex just started towing residents. What GREAT customer service!
A few years ago, I rented an apartment at +Turnberry Isle in Dallas, Texas. It was one of the worst choices I've ever made!

PLEASE help me in standing up to a company who has made my life a living hell. 

From Day 1, everything that could go wrong, has. Including:
-- I can only have A/C -OR- Heat. When it starts to get cold, they literally have to "turn on" my heat. Manually. Same thing in the spring to get A/C. I have spent countless nights at a friends' house because it was too hot or too cold for me to live in my own apartment. 
-- Various plumbing and maintenance issues. Repeating issues at that. I've had to call in the same issue multiple times.

My apartment complex just started towing residents. What GREAT customer service!
A few years ago, I rented an apartment at +Turnberry Isle in Dallas, Texas. It was one of the worst choices I've ever made!

PLEASE help me in standing up to a company who has made my life a living hell. 

From Day 1, everything that could go wrong, has. Including:
-- I can only have A/C -OR- Heat. When it starts to get cold, they literally have to "turn on" my heat. Manually. Same thing in the spring to get A/C. I have spent countless nights at a friends' house because it was too hot or too cold for me to live in my own apartment. 
-- Various plumbing and maintenance issues. Repeating issues at that. I've had to call in the same issue multiple times. 
-- Oh... and I was bit by a DOG who was too big to be living there.
-- Threats to evict me because of THEIR system screwing up. No polite call to say "hey, you've been the perfect tenant. We appreciate that you pay on time every time for YEARS. But something's wrong." Nope! BAM! Slam the hammer first. Then... and only then... did they look to THEIR system for the screw up.
-- When I complained and asked to speak to a regional manager, I got nothing but attitude from her.

Management changed recently to +Gaines Investment Trust, and since then, EVERY act from the company has been inhumane! They don't care about their residents. They strike first and it seems they just... hope no one says anything. 

Well, I'm DONE not saying anything.

When I signed my lease, parking was open and available to all. But I pay extra for a garage. Recently, the company issued stickers for parking and changed the rules. You can no longer park anywhere. 

The day before I left for Germany, they give me a sticker for my garage. Which does NO good whatsoever. I pay extra for a garage. I DON'T pay extra so that I'm forced to ONLY park in my garage. 

I had a load to take into my apartment and was headed back out, so I parked for just a bit in a random spot. 

By the time I came back out to the car, it was gone. No notice. No consideration. Just WHACK! They towed my car. And I have NO idea where they took it.

Who knows how many residents here are in the same boat. So it's time we show them it's not okay to treat your residents like crap. People shouldn't be able to get away with this stuff. 

Here are their social handles. Please let them know what you think!

Late to the party as always, my Ice Bucket Challenge, helped by the brass section of the South London Youth Orchestra that I've been coaching all week. (Watched by the whole orchestra!)
I've made my donation to ALS and as I realise not everyone on the planet has quite as much fresh water (and ice) to be silly with, I've also donated to Water Aid as well.
No nominations as I didn't want anyone to feel pressured, but have a go if you fancy (its more fun than it looks), or not, but either way consider sparing some change for a charity of your choice :-)

Why the Ice Bucket Challenge Matters

Last night +Andrew Mayne posted a brilliant summary of why the whole Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit ALS not only matters, but is genius. However, he posted it to Facebook, so to simplify the issue of sharing it, I'm copying it with attribution.

===================================

I’m sorry this silly fundraiser for a debilitating disease is ruining your Facebook experience…

My Facebook feed is filled with people either doing the ice bucket challenge or people deriding it.

The truth of the matter is, it’s a lot easier to criticize than to actually raise awareness and money for a cause.

The ALS Association has had a record breaking funding drive ($30 million so far). This is money that will go towards research that ultimately will help thousands of people dealing with this debilitating condition.

For people who say, “Why not just donate without the silly stunt?” 

That’s not how the world works. There are thousands of other worthwhile causes out there that would love to have your support, but they’re not getting it.

The only reason we’re having a conversation about ALS (and not spinal muscular atrophy or hundreds of other diseases) is because of this clever stunt. It’s a conversation starter.

Every critical post I’ve seen says that ALS is a great cause and all, but we can do without the Ice Bucket Challenge, ignores the fact that probably 100% of the people complaining about it never mentioned ALS ever on social media before this.

It’s not about the ice water. It’s getting famous people and your friends to do something silly and along the way bring attention to a good cause.

Are some people doing the stunt without calling attention to ALS? Sure. But even if only one in ten people involved makes a contribution, that’s more than were doing so before.

I think the real reason so many people are annoyed by this is because of the attention-whoring element. Um, hello, this is Facebook. At least this is attention-whoring with a cause.

If somebody had thought of this when planking was around, we probably would have cured cancer by now.

We’re closer to a cure for ALS because of the Ice Bucket Challenge. The longer it keeps going and the more people contribute, the sooner a cure can be found.

My #IceBucketChallenge to the haters is to just endure this until it runs out. Discouraging people from getting involved by removing the most important viral element (the ice bucket) is doing a disservice to people who suffer ALS and are hoping for a cure.

Don’t forget to contribute :)  http://www.alsa.org/___

Why I won’t be taking the Ice Bucket challenge.
Has anyone asked you to throw ice over your head yet or pay a fine of $100?

One very friendly, kind, caring member of the Plus Your Business community member challenged me and, well, I refused. And I really like and respect the person who challenged me.

Before I get started, I know these will be the responses...

“Well, you are no fun.”

"Spoilsport."

“But it is for a good cause. Don’t you believe in giving to charities?”

“You do silly things on Google+ they involve lots of people doing campaigns…”

Sure, I take on-board all of that but something in me would not allow me to do it.

Actually, I was pulling up outside the garage to buy some ice, when I felt a deep feeling that doing this seemingly simple act was going to be a ‘bad’move. All I heard was... more »

“You do silly things on Google+ they involve lots of people doing campaigns…”

Sure, I take on-board all of that but something in me would not allow me to do it.

Actually, I was pulling up outside the garage to buy some ice, when I felt a deep feeling that doing this seemingly simple act was going to be a ‘bad’ move. All I heard was someone screaming ‘noooooo’. You know, like that scene in ‘The Man with Two Brain’s’ when Steve Martin character (Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr) asks permission from his departed wife to marry again. Not seen it? Shame on you. It is awesome. 1983 at its best.

The Man With Two Brains -- just give me a sign

Needless to say, he ignored ‘the sign’.

And I even was thinking of challenging one of the Geek Beat team (which one was undecided), but alas, no.

The easiest thing for me to have done was to say yes, to pass the parcel to the next person. To allow them to be the one who has to make a choice.

“But Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Bill Gate, Mark Zuckerberg have done it…”

I don’t care who has done it. Increasing the social proof around something that I feel deeply is a bad move to do is not going to make me do it.

I’ve sensed in my life, time and time again, the tension between social expectations and my personal freedom of choice, and as a kid you didn’t want to be seen as a ‘spoil sport’, so you just did it.

And, here is what I think it going on…

The challenge is genius, but faulty:

This challenge is spreading like wild fire. Why? Because we have:

a) a very worthwhile cause (my father died of Motor Neuron Disease, so I’ve seen first hand the suffering such diseases like ALS bring)

b) a simple, replication methodology for getting involved, i.e. entry price of the ticket is simply the ice bucket

c) a mode of communication, i.e. social (inc. video), which enables ease of information transfer

d) influential people getting involved, and through this endorsement others feel they should follow suit

This really is a monster meme. Clever, but nonetheless faulty in my view...

The Outer Game:

The mechanism of a highly socialized campaign, with ‘all the big names’ doing it, is very appealing. But it is build on a few key principles:

The game forces people to buy into the conditions of the game or be shown to be non-compliant to a larger audience. In other words, it is a bind, a social trap. And as I say, a very clever one.

So let’s look at the three main responses available in this situation:

1. They accept the challenge to tip the ice bucket

2. They refuse the challenge but still ‘play the game’ and pay the fine

3. They refuse to play the game, and therefore fail to be a 'team player' or are a spoil sport in a game to which they never chose to party.

The last one may well be met with a response that they will, however, give to charity (as did Obama). This is a concessionary move to exit the relational loop in a way then allows both parties not to have lost.
No real surprise Obama refused to be put in a bind. 

I am sure this could be far more eloquently explored: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_theory

There is also an inner game for each player…

The Inner Game of 'Stick or Twist'

I’m sure you know the card game BlackJack (or a version called Pontoon as we used to say as kids).

Imagine you have 16, that is 5 short of getting 21. Do you twist? Do you take the gamble? Possibly.

What about when you have 19 or 20?

You stick right?

Why? Because you know the odds in that game.

In a much broader and more complex social game you cannot know the odds - relationships are far more complex. So when someone challenges someone to do something in a public space, they are throwing down the gauntlet there are several ways it can go.

Let’s look at the ice bucket challenge specifically:

The person challenges someone in perceived authority or a subordinate (both of which I am sure is happening in corporates around the world right now) and in essence that person takes a gamble.

At this point their dopamine levels will kick in and they get a high. “Will they DO IT?”

Then they wait for the response. And that person either buys into the game, or not.

But either way, you wait to see if you influenced them to take the challenge.

The gamble people take is a very similar internal experience as e.g. “will they email me back?” or if I plus mention them in this Google+ post, will then arrive on my thread, or as in my ‘Why Dave? Why didn’t you click the button?” video, will they +1 my hilarious/insightful/entertaining comment.

Why? Why didn't you click the button Dave?

i.e. it is a gamble against yourself, all the time. You decide on the wave you take, and the ones you leave.

But here is the thing if you reject the games, the approaches, the requests: you are not responsible for someone else’s dopamine. They take a gamble, and you just have to do your best in your response.

It is similar as to when people may ask you to share their content, putting you (on occasions) in an awkward position. If you stand up and say 'no', they may feel bruised by this, but it is they who took the gamble. You cannot be responsible for the response people may have to your actions, e.g. the refusal to accept the bet that someone made against you without your agreement to be party to it. You can still love them, but you don’t have to play their game.

There is a social risk that needs to be insured against though, so people's response could well be to try to make the person who refuses to play 'look bad', to name and shame. Or simply, this is inherent with the rejection of the game itself - you are excluded from that tribe, but is a tribe you never choice to join.

The meme will morph. They usually do.

There is another response which is this: they change the rules of the game, and in fact because the foundations of this game were faulty i.e. ice or money, it has morphed towards ‘ice+$10’ or $100.

Already we seen the meme move from the original ‘Ice bucket or fine’ to ‘Icebucket and $10, to fine’ to Charlie Sheen’s “forget the ice, I just challenge you to donate $10,000’, which is great.

Charlie Sheen -- Ice Bucket Challenge with a BIG Twist

Well done Mr Sheen.

In a wider scheme, I do wonder about the effect of adults, with great awareness, endorsing the ice bucket action.

Money may well be raised for a cause, but I bet you this meme has hit many a school playground and is now used as a form of bullying.

Why do I think this? I’ve run many campaigns and there is always the risk of it ‘going wrong’ i.e. simply not being in your control, and this can include it being taken in a negative or abusive direction.

What is all fun and games on minute can become abusive the next, especially when it doesn’t have a very tight time constraint when the game organizing can call an end.

As such, yes, I decided not to play.

Hold on a minute, I know I’ve heard all this somewhere before. It was 1983…

That scene from War Games

Sometimes the winning move it not to play.

Seth Godin, tribes and asking permission:

For those looking more at a Google+ angle on all this, then this bit is for you...

I have enormous respect for Seth Godin and his influence upon me is daily. Between him Jay Baer, Chris Brogan and Mike Stelzner I am beating my own path in the world, and seeing who want to join the movement.

One time I saw Mike refuse to do something on stage in front of 1800 people at a conference (I think it was a dance upon the request of a speaker). At the time, I 'noted it'. And now I know why. He chose not to be forced into someone elses game.

But let me be 100% transparent once more about what I do...

Myself and the team Google+ to build the communities; along the way I build my personal brand, and to connect with likeminded people with whom I can collaborate.

As you may have noticed, I give you free content, a lot of it. In return I do expect something though. I expect you to ‘tell your friends’, or in G+ speak, +1/comment/share, and this is what naturally happens when you like something. This will signal to Google’s algorithm that this content is ‘WOW’ and should surface in Google Search. This is then found by people interested in those topics, and who visit the websites, and maybe even sign up and buy something from myself and the community members involved.

To help this process I create content that many people would sell, and then give it away for free to people. Very often I will create a circle of people who are interested in previewing the content, which brings them together and gives them a bonus in return for me being allowed to notify them when the big post goes live. I kind of a bribe, yes.

The method I often us is to ask people “Who would like to join a circle for content around e.g. Google+ Marketing” i.e. they opt in.

In other words, I ask your permission would you like to join in. Or, alternatively, you follow me on Google+ by adding me into circles and you choose whether or not to engage on my content.

The ice bucket challenge approach is contrary to the one I tend to take.

I believe the permission marketing approach is so much more healthy than a meme which could easily turn into a mechanism for dominance, creating a social trap for those who are unable to transcend the emotional discomfort and reject the game outright.

And sure, they have raised $15 million+, but it has been raised this approach may not benefit the charity long term. As the L.A.Times says, “The concern of philanthropy experts is that high-profile fundraising campaigns like this end up cannibalizing other donations” and continues “You want to contribute to the fight against ALS, great. But if you're doing it just because you saw or heard about Bill Gates, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake or Ethel Kennedy dumping ice water on their head, maybe you should give a bit more thought to where you donate your money.”

Conclusion:

The memes we create, join, and perpetuate are the ones which will determine the cultural norms of the future i.e. what is ‘ok’ and what is not ‘ok’, which is why I’ve chose not to put people over a barrel, well, under an icy cold bucket.

I also owe a huge thank you to the person who challenged me, you know who you are; you have enabled me to say express something that would not have otherwise been said. It is much appreciated, truly.

My final words are this: Donate to charity. A charity to which you relate.

I’ve just donated here: http://www.mndassociation.org/

Then invent your own games. Find those who want to play of their own free will.
And let everyone leave when they want, hopefully with a smile on their face.
