  • Darwin’s theory: Survival of the (conference) fittest

    Cathy Brooks
    3 Sep 2009 | 8:06 am
    Guest post by Cathy Brooks, read her blog | follow her on Twitter Credit The tech industry cannibalizes its own young quite well – at least when it comes to conferences. You know what I’m talking about. Any time there’s a hot topic, a battery of conferences and events spring to life, all purporting to be the end all be all source for information on that given subject. These new market, technology or product focused voices join the steady ongoing chorus of stalwart general events – the panoply of high-end confabs targeting in-demand leaders from top brands and companies. From TED…

  • The Gift of Compassion and Inspiration

    2 Sep 2009 | 10:40 pm
    Source: ILP Sometimes we are quick to judge with or without due cause. Even if we believe our views to be right, many times our perception is merely right within our world and not necessarily the worlds of others. Perhaps we’re caught up in the real-time aspects of having access to information and the power to publish on-demand.  Maybe we need to seek justification for our unwillingness to step outside of our comfort zones. Or perchance, we’re simply repressing animosity  towards those who seem to envision and/or accomplish things we haven’t yet found the energy, passion…

  • No Tweets for You! NFL Bans Tweets Before, During, and After Games

    1 Sep 2009 | 9:34 pm
    Source On Monday, the National Football League announced that it will now limit use of social media and networks during the season. Players, coaches, officials, personnel, third-party representatives, and even the media are prohibited from updating their status, blogging, or tweeting 90 minutes before a game until post-game interviews are completed. You can bet that the NFL will pay particular attention to Chad Ochocinco, who recently boasted in a personal Ustream chat that he plans to circumvent the rules and tweet while playing – even if it’s through a representative or…

  • A New Mindset is Needed

    1 Sep 2009 | 6:59 am
    Guest post by Katie Delahaye Paine: Follow her on Twitter | Visit her site Source There’s been a great deal of discussion of late both here and in other forums about the blurring lines between advertising and editorial and the implications for both relationship building and sales. As a measurement geek (or queen, which ever you prefer) my response is generally – who cares what you call it, focus on the results. Is what your doing selling stuff, saving money, or making you more efficient? Great, do more of it, and less of the stuff that isn’t generating revenue. The problem I run up…

  • Does Social Networking Impair Learning?

    30 Aug 2009 | 8:06 am
    Source: PBCentral It is not only an interesting question for those who run rampant in the streams of the social web, it’s an intellectual voyage that unravels answers that just may hit home. According to a Stanford study, multitaskers are “suckers for irrelevancy” according to communication Professor Clifford Nass, one of the researchers whose findings are published in the Aug. 24 edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “Everything distracts them.” A group of Stanford researches found, “People who are regularly bombarded with several…

  • Social Media & In-House Counsel

    Will Robinson
    1 Sep 2009 | 1:42 pm
    A July 2009 research study by Russell Herder and Ethos Business Law found that 81% of senior management, marketing and human resources executives view social media as a valuable tool to enhance relationships with customers and build their company’s brand. That’s the good part. Here’s the challenge: the same amount, 81%, perceives social media as a corporate security risk. There’s a natural balance. You want to use social media to enhance your brand and customer relationships. Who’s managing the associated risk? Your new best friend – your in-house counsel.   Before joining the…

  • Posterous – Filling the Informal Void

    Kaitlyn Wilkins
    30 Aug 2009 | 6:37 pm
    I’ve been on Facebook since 2003.  I’ve been blogging since 2006.   I got on Twitter in 2007.  Generally speaking, I didn’t believe there was room in my life (or my attention span) for another platform.   Enter Posterous. (Graphic via Fast Company) In their own words, “Posterous is the dead simple way to put anything online using email.”  You email content (a link, text, photo, video, even MP3) to your email address at Posterous and it automatically posts it to your Posterous site – as well as over a dozen other social media platforms that you specify.

  • Co-Creation Grows Into a Viable Business Model

    24 Aug 2009 | 7:01 am
    There’s been a lot of interesting discussion recently on how to best leverage channels like Twitter to communicate.  This post talks about a bit about the co-creation of new social experiences that drive conversation and engagement in innovative ways, with the potential to then communicate the co-creation activity across multiple channels – including Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Flickr. More than ever before, people have tools to help them co-create products and services in social environments.  It’s an exciting trend that’s still very much in its infancy.  Many of us…

    21 Aug 2009 | 7:06 am
    Last week, I had the privileged of attending and speaking at the CDC’s National Conference Health Communication Marketing and Media. It was a great experience to “geek out” with a bunch of other health communications professionals and learn about many of the case studies around health and social media this year. My presentation came from our Twitter Best practices series spearheaded by Kristin Foster back in October/November of last year and my specific contribution to that effort on how to use the Create, Follow and Engage methodology for engaging people around causes and…

  • smart advice from socialnomics

    johnmoore (from Brand Autopsy)
    1 Sep 2009 | 9:45 am
    Over the weekend I bought and read Erik Qualman’s SOCIALNOMICS book. It’s a deep dive into how social media transforms the way we live and do business. In chapter seven, Erik writes about “Winners and Losers in a 140-Character World.” One line jumped out at me as a brilliant way to explain the best approach for businesses participating in the online conversation.

    For just over a year, I’ve been building Dachis Group, a company focused on social business design.  I joined Jeff and we brought Kate, Ellen, Jevon, and David on board.  This team has been carefully selected for its skills. Today, we add global scale via the acquisition of Headshift, a social business consultancy with offices in London and Sydney. Organizations across the globe are starting to see social media’s true potential as social business.  Accordingly, complex issues like integration and scale can be solved by constructing a solid strategic foundation.

  • Solving the scalability problem

    Peter Kim
    25 Aug 2009 | 12:25 am
    Bridging The Social Divide from Armano on Flickr A year ago, I wrote about social media marketing’s scalability problem.  It still hasn’t been fully solved, but we’ve seen progress toward a solution. To reiterate: In theory, using social media for marketing should scale elegantly.  In practice, real life starts to get in the way.  You can’t create “viral.”  People don’t scale, either.  Technologies scale, but programs – especially those with a labor-intensive component – don’t. Now, I see the solution that I didn’t have a name for a year ago:  social business…

    We’ve got three panels up for consideration as part of SXSW 2010.  The team would appreciate your consideration around the following ideas! Social Business By Design (Armano) Description:  The hype around social media has become deafening. Organizations are feeling pressured to “join the conversation” or risk being irrelevant. However, a “social business” has to be designed from the ground up and the top down in order to achieve transformation which scales. Are we ready to move beyond lip service? Will address:  What is “social business design”? Why is this important…

  • Working this weekend?

    15 Aug 2009 | 5:15 am
    Earlier this week, I was discussing social media and crisis management with some friends.  In hindsight, some well-known situations blew up over a weekend, leaving companies to respond on Monday morning (e.g. Motrin, Tim Horton’s). Many of us agreed that we are more deeply engaged with social media on weekends, being quite occupied with higher priority work during weekdays.  But as consumers expect to engage with brands around the clock, all week long, we may need to start rethinking how we work.  This is what social business requires. It seems timely to rehash parts of a post…

  • Should you be paid to participate in social media?

    Peter Kim
    10 Aug 2009 | 12:10 am
    Employees are a key element in social business. Designing roles for employees in social business requires particular thought around ecosystem (i.e. how they connect with others), hivemind
    (i.e. their level of social calibration), and dynamic signaling (i.e. content creation and distribution). Most of the people I know who are involved in social media are of the white-collar salaried variety. Many of them participate in order to gain a competitive edge in their work. But what happens when the rest of the company gets involved?  In particular, when the participation happens for corporate…

  • Naming disasters

    Doc Searls
    2 Sep 2009 | 7:18 pm
    Why do mainstream broadcasters keep calling that big fire north of Los Angeles “the so-called Station Fire?” You never hear “so-called Hurricane Bill” or “so-called Hurricane Erika”. Why is that? The main reason is that hurricanes have a much better naming convention. The surnames of hurricanes are first names of humans. The first names of wildfires often make no sense to ordinary folk. Gap, Day and Station don’t call meaning to mind. As I recall the Day Fire was the second to start on Labor Day, 2006. The other fire was called Labor. With their human…

  • Living on Borrowed Land

    Why do mature redwood trees have trunks that rise two hundred feet before branches commence, live for centuries and have bark that’s a foot thick? Because they are adapted to fire. Why does the silver-green chaparral that covers California’s hills and mountains burn so easily? Because it’s supposed to. Why, other than its color, is the California Poppy such an appropriate flower for the Golden State? Because it is adapted to both fire and earthquakes. Says Wikipedia, “It grows well in disturbed areas and often recolonizes after fires”. Of course, so do we.

    Just arrived at my house in Santa Barbara after a long drive down from Monterey. Most of the way I listened to live coverage of the Station Fire on KNX/1070, both through the car radio (KNX has a huge signal that covers the whole southwest at night) and online over my iPhone, which was plugged into the AUX input of the radio in my rented Ford Focus (not a bad car, by the way). Here’s KNX’s latest story, with a map. Here is a set of mashed-up fire maps I just created, courtesy of MODIS and the U.S. Forest Service and Google Earth.

    A couple days ago I responded to a posting on an email list. What I wrote struck a few chords, so I thought I’d repeat it here, with just a few edits, and then add a few additional thoughts as well. Here goes. Reading _____’s references to ancient electrical power science brings to mind my own technical background, most of which is now also antique. Yet that background still informs of my understanding of the world, and my curiosities about What’s Going On Now, and What We Can Do Next. In fact I suspect that it is because I know so much about old technology that I am bullish…
