Lisa Engles4,043*Link to the program mentioned in this hangout www.hangoutsforvisionaryleaders.com/program*Coaches, Authors and Speakers: Go From Ground Zero to Hangout HeroHave you spent a lot of time, energy and money spinning your wheels, trying to spread your message and build your audience using social media marketing, but haven’t seen the results that you hoped for?  Do you feel disconnected from the very people you want to reach?  Well, you’re not alone.  In fact, most heart-centered entrepreneurs and visionary leaders that I talk to all say the same thing: " I feel disconnected from the people I want to reach"  and : “I don’t like using social media, but I know I’m supposed to.”  And less than a year ago, I was one of them.​I was frustrated because there was something about social media that didn’t feel right to me.  I was very resistant to using it.  It felt useless to me because honestly, I was a small fish in a big pond of thousands of 'experts' who were using all types of tactics that felt pushy and in your face. If that's what I needed to do to get seen and get clients, then no thanks.  It's just not who I am.Then one day, I had an ‘ah-ha” moment.  I realized that the reason I was feeling so much resistance was because at the core of who I am and what I do as a coach, author and speaker is - connect and communicate.In that moment I saw how social media was actually putting a divide between me and ideal audience and was keeping me from getting noticed and ultimately, getting clients because there was a lack of authentic connection and communication. Think about it, how much can you really connect with people when you’re limited posting a 140 characters, a link or an image?  The lack of authentic engagement was not only keeping me from effectively communicating my message, it was keeping me from connecting with my ideal audience and it was ultimately keeping me from making money doing what I love to do. So I made it my goal to figure out how I could reach others with my message in a way that felt real and that created an opportunity for authentic connection.  And that’s when I decided to look into google hangouts on air.   Within 6 months of using hangouts on air (HOA) I was finally able to break the barriers between me and my ideal clients, get the support of influencers both in google plus and in my niche, establish my expertise and build a loyal following of people who want what I have to offer… all things I had been unsuccessful in accomplishing before.So, in this hangout I want to show you how you can have this type of success using hangouts as well.    #RonnieBincer  has been a big piece of my 'winning' equation, so he'll be joining us in this hangout where Hangout Strategies for Visionary Leaders2014-04-14 20:00:0098G+

martin shervington626,208Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future.Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too!What is 'Youtility' all about?Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success.You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?”If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility."Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0079G+

Jim Shankle1,373It's always a pleasure hearing +David Amerland discuss "The GSS/G+ Connection" because it's a subject area with many facets.For mobile viewers click on this YouTube Link - MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland The time for the Event is translated to your local time zone. As a reference, it starts at 7:30 PM ET.Google Semantic Search and its direct connection to, and support by, Google+ (what I am starting to call "The GSS/G+ Connection") is remarkably deep and important. Yet David explains it with such simplicity, ease, and freshness that it's very understandable and enjoyable no matter your level of experience. Unquestionably, there is a wealth of material in this subject matter which means David will never be over-exposed or fail to peel back yet another layer of this very large onion every time he appears in an HOA.Thursday night he is joining my MBA Marketing Strategies class at John Brown University (Rogers Center in Northwest Arkansas) via Google Hangouts On Air. David will explain The GSS/G+ Connection from an MBA's and marketer's perspective. He will also introduce some unique "life applications" that should be pursued as an extension of the emerging power of GSS and Google+. Our session will start at 6:30 PM CST for those interested in seeing Marketing Strategies examined from David's unique perspective.Two facts backing my conclusion that David has struck a deep vein...1) He had 22,000 Followers when I started communicating with him 5-6 weeks ago. Today his Followers number over 150,000, and2) His game-changing book Google Semantic Search - 230 pages (including an extensive Bibliography for those who want to explore the subject even further) that mines (as David calls it) a "semantically dense" subject.Proof that GSS/G+ is a critically important subject for MBA students (everyone really) was on display last week. Friday for an enjoyable and fast-paced hour, David, +Mark Traphagen  +Ronnie Bincer   (aka "The Hangout Helper") and +martin shervington  discussed how Google+ is changing behavior on the internet - to the better - https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c0n7nndld5gebbjat1of0dhb124 Even after a full hour, there were many unaddressed questions - reflecting that the session could have continued for the rest of the day. Based on the enjoyable chemistry of these four professionals, most their large audience probably would not have left them had it continued.Come join us Thursday night to continue the discussion.#mktgmba  MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland Explores "The GSS/G+ Connection" at John Brown University2013-11-08 01:30:0064G+

Today in History: Darwin & Wallace Announce Evolution Theory
On August 20, 1858 — 156 years ago today — Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace made a joint announcement of the theory of evolution through natural selection in The Journal of the Proceedings of the Linnean Society of London. Since Darwin and Wallace first published their ideas, virtually every discovery in the fields of natural history, geology, genetics, and paleoanthropology has supported or extended their central thesis — all life is related, species change over time in response to natural selection, and new forms replace those that came before.

Today in History: Microsoft Releases “Windows 95”
On August 24, 1995 — 19 years ago today — Microsoft began shipping “Windows 95” with built-in internet support, a 32-bit architecture, and the first appearance of the Start menu, taskbar, minimize/maximize and close buttons on each window. Microsoft’s ceremonies for the release of Windows 95 were among the most celebrated marketing events in business history. Within 5 weeks of its release, a record-breaking 7 million copies had been sold, and it soon became the dominant operating system on PCs around the world. About this time, 80% of the world’s PCs were using previous versions of MS-DOS and Windows operating systems; Windows 95 provided an upgrade path for these PC users, but recommended hardware included a 486 processor and 8 MB of RAM.

Coincidentally, the launch date for Windows 95 was two years to the day afterMicrosoft won t... altro »

Gorilla reunites with man who raised Gorilla
This is a touching story (only 4 minute video) about Damian Aspinall, who raised a Gorilla for years and then released him to a wildlife conservation area in West Africa. The Gorilla had been exceptionally unfriendly to humans who had tried to approach him while in this wildlife area. When Damian returned 5 years after the Gorilla's release, their reunited experience is shown in the video.

CEO caught kicking dog; resigns his position
Social media is having a positive effect in highlighting unacceptable behavior — like kicking a helpless dog. Shameful behavior caught on video today can spread like wildfire. And then self-organizing, passionate people become motivated to learn the details of the situation, coalesce in virtual space to apply pressure once the misconduct is clearly understood, and suddenly a man who was CEO of a multi-billion dollar company before kicking the dog is now no longer CEO.

Is this sort of viral shaming good? Are there any problems with it? 

My feeling is that any human being who kicks a helpless animal 1/10th his size that he's controlling with a leash does have a severe personality problem that needs to be addressed. I'm happy to see the CEO has apologized for his actions, is contributing $100,000 to establish a foundationto... altro »

My feeling is that any human being who kicks a helpless animal 1/10th his size that he's controlling with a leash does have a severe personality problem that needs to be addressed. I'm happy to see the CEO has apologized for his actions, is contributing $100,000 to establish a foundation to help animals, and has agreed to attend anger-management counseling. (Many of us could use anger management techniques.)___

When Damian returned 5 years after the Gorilla's release, their reunited experience is shown in the video.

Today in History: Sunken Titanic Found!
On September 1, 1985 — 29 years ago today and 73 years after it sank from hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage — the Titanic was finally found about 12,500 feet (3,800 m) below the surface about 1,250 miles (2,012 km) from New York City and 370 miles (600 km) from Halifax. The ship split in two, with the front of the ship mostly intact [see photo below]. The stern (rear end) of the ship was completely wrecked, as decks pancaked on top of each other as the stern crashed into the bottom of the ocean.

Immediately after the Titanic sunk, families of a number of wealthy victims of the tragedy — the Astors, Guggenheims, and Wideners — contracted a wrecking company to raise the ship.

Today in History: Sunken Titanic Found!
On September 1, 1985 — 29 years ago today and 73 years after it sank from hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage — the Titanic was finally found about 12,500 feet (3,800 m) below the surface about 1,250 miles (2,012 km) from New York City and 370 miles (600 km) from Halifax. The ship split in two, with the front of the ship mostly intact [see photo below]. The stern (rear end) of the ship was completely wrecked, as decks pancaked on top of each other as the stern crashed into the bottom of the ocean.

Immediately after the Titanic sunk, families of a number of wealthy victims of the tragedy — the Astors, Guggenheims, and Wideners — contracted a wrecking company to raise the ship. This project was eventually abandoned, inasmuch as it could not be determined precisely where the ship sank, and the depth in the area that the ship sank was too great to reach by any practical methods at the time. In 1914, an architect proposed attaching electromagnets to a submarine so that it would be drawn to the wreck’s steel hull. Once found, more electromagnets would be dropped from a fleet of barges that would attach to the Titantic and lift it to the surface. In 1953 and 1954, the founder of a marine salvage company tried to locate the sunken ship without any success. In the mid-1960s, a hosiery worker concocted a plan to locate the Titantic using a bathyscaphe and then attach nylon balloons to the hull to raise it to the surface. In the 1970s, another scheme was put forward to raise the ship by pumping either molten wax or vaseline into the hull, which would make the ship buoyant. Another proposal called for using ping-pong balls for the same purpose (except the pressure would crush them, haha); so another proposal involved using Benthos glass (which could withstand the pressure), except that the cost was hundreds of millions of dollars. One more proposal suggested pumping liquid nitrogen to the sea bed and freezing the area around the Titanic to encase it in ice, which would then float to the surface. Still, despite the seeming highly impractical nature of all these proposals, no one knew exactly where the Titanic was.

In the early 1980s, a Texas oilman raised money and set out to find the Titanic’s location. After 3 attempts, nothing had been found that scientists could endorse. At the same time in the early 1980s, Dr. Robert Ballard was secretly working with the U.S. Navy to try to locate two nuclear submarines —  the U.S.S. Thresher and U.S.S. Scorpion — that were lost in the North Atlantic in depths of up to 10,000 feet (3,000 m). Dr. Ballard, working with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and funded by the U.S. Navy, had created an unmanned deep-towed undersea video camera sled, called the Argo, to search for these ships. The Navy implied that if Ballard had completed the Navy’s mission then he could use whatever time was left to look for the Titanic; and Ballard said the Navy Secretary knew of this plan. So once Ballard finished up the Navy work, he focused immediately on the Titanic debris field and on September 1, 1985, the Argo located the Titanic’s boiler.

Today in History: Edison granted patent for Kinetographic Camera
On August 31, 1897 — 123 years ago today — Thomas Edison was granted a U.S. patent for his Kinetographic camera, which used 35mm film to record images. Edison described, in a caveat filing (stipulation) with the Patents Office 9 years earlier, his proposed device would “do for the eye what the phonograph does for the ear” — record and reproduce motion. The Kinetographic camera was the forerunner of modern motion picture cameras.

Interestingly, Edison originally was motivated to develop the kinetographic camera as a way to increase sales on his earlier invention, the phonograph — by offering moving pictures with sound. But what an industry this invention helped to launch: the filmed entertainment industry total worldwide revenue is approaching $100 billion.

On a funny note, Wes Clark (today, frequently called “one of the fathers of the personal computer”) suggested, as a way for computers across the country to interconnect with each other, inserting “a small computer between each host computer and the network of transmission lines.” This idea was accepted and the device Clark proposed was called the IMP — Interface Message Processor. U.S. Massachusetts Senator Kennedy sent a letter to BBN after it had been chosen to build the devices and congratulated the company on its contract to build the “Interfaith Message Processor.”

The first IMP was delivered to UCLA, and the second device was delivered to the Stanford Research Institute on October 1, 1969. The first test of the IMPs took place on October 29, 1969, and it was a success.

Today in History: Michael Faraday Created First Electric Transformer
On August 29, 1831 — 183 years ago today — Michael Faraday demonstrated electromagnetic induction by wrapping two insulated coils of wires around opposite sides of an iron ring. Faraday found that when a current was passed through one coil, a momentary current was induced in the other coil. What Faraday learned from this experiment and subsequent experiments was that a changing magnetic field produces an electric field. The great mathematical physicist, James Clerk Maxwell, mathematically modeled the relation between a magnetic field and an electric field and called it “Faraday’s Law” (one of the 4 subsequent Maxwell equations that evolved into field theory).

Faraday used the principles he discovered to later construct the “electric dynamo” — the forerunner of modern power generators and the electricmotor.

Interestingly, Albert Einstein thought so highly of Faraday that he kept a portrait of Faraday on his study wall (and also portraits of Maxwell and Isaac Newton). Thomas Edison also regarded Faraday as a hero, especially after Edison read Faraday’s “Experimental Researches in Electricity.”

Chinese use Google+ more than Facebook
China, with over 640 million internet users, prefers Google+ to Facebook. In China, 21% of social-media users are Google+ users; while only 16% use Facebook. As China goes, so goes the world?

Chart of the Day: 74% of Chinese internet users are social networking each month
http://g-web.in/1mR3i1S

For our Thursday chart, we draw on highlights from our new infographic tracking social networking behaviors in China.

Overall, nearly three quarters of Chinese internet users aged 16-64 say that they’ve used a social network within the last month – a figure which translates to an impressive 350 million people and which underlines the sheer size of the social population in this market.

In terms of active usage, Sina Weibo remains in first place; despite restrictions imposed by the government having caused a sustained decline over the last year, it’s still nearly 3 in 5 who are using the service. 

Following closely behind are Qzone and then Tencent Weibo, but there are also sizable audiences for international platforms such as Google+, Facebook and Twitter. Indeed, although they are subject to official bans, our infographic demonstrates how large numbers of Chinese internet users are turning to VPNs, Proxy Servers and other tools in order to gain access to the global giants of the social networking world.

The dominance of WeChat within the messaging space is also plain to see: some 88% of mobile internet users are chatting via the app each month.___Chinese use Google+ more than Facebook

Circulation declined after World War II, and 3 publishing entrepreneurs — who were planning to start their own new science magazine — bought Scientific American to use its assets, primarily its reputable name for their newly conceived magazine. Circulation of the magazine increased 15-fold under the leadership of these three partners, Gerard Piel, Dennic Flanagan, and Donald H. Miller. After they retired, the magazine was sold in 1986 to the Georg von Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, a German company, for $52.6 million, and it has remained owned by Holtzbrinck to this day.

Today in History: First U.S. Oil Well Drilled
On August 27, 1859 — 155 years ago today — an epic event in the history of the oil industry occurred in Titusville, Pennsylvania: After a year and a half of effort, at a depth of 69 feet, innovator Edwin L. Drake and his business partner, George Bissell, struck a pool of oil and the oil industry was born [in the U.S., at least; 11 years earlier, a Russian engineer, F.N. Semyenov, is credited with drilling the world’s first oil well in 1848 in the Aspheron Peninsula in what is now Azerbaijan].

Today in History: First U.S. Oil Well Drilled
On August 27, 1859 — 155 years ago today — an epic event in the history of the oil industry occurred in Titusville, Pennsylvania: After a year and a half of effort, at a depth of 69 feet, innovator Edwin L. Drake and his business partner, George Bissell, struck a pool of oil and the oil industry was born [in the U.S., at least; 11 years earlier, a Russian engineer, F.N. Semyenov, is credited with drilling the world’s first oil well in 1848 in the Aspheron Peninsula in what is now Azerbaijan]. Drake harnessed the power of a 6 HP Long John engine and a stationary boiler to activate the drill’s boring capability.

Before Semyenov and Drake had implemented mechanisms for boring into the ground to extract oil, oil was collected by gathering it from “oil seeps” or shallow holes dug where it was collecting in pools. Most practical oil up to Drake’s first successful well was obtained from the blubber of whales, and one reason Drake was drilling for oil in the ground was that whale oil had become expensive and its supply was dwindling, as aggressive whaling had pushed many whale species to the brink of extinction.

Unfortunately for Drake who is known as the “father of the petroleum industry,” Drake did not patent his innovative conductor mechanism, a “drive pipe,” that helped to prevent a well’s walls from collapsing, and so he never became wealthy. Oil wells copying Drake's method proliferated, and the proliferation of successful oil wells led to the decline of oil prices. Drake subsequently lost all of his savings on speculative oil drilling. Moreover, in the years after his initial success, Drake may have developed ALS before it had been known as a disease [my speculation], because he lost much of his motor ability in later life. Because Drake could not work, friends collected money for his family, and the Pennsylvania legislature voted to pay him and his family a stipend of $1,500 per month until he died.

Today in History: Patent Granted for 1st Practical Typewriter
On August 26, 1843 — 171 years ago today — Charles Thurber was granted a patent (3,228) for a “machine for printing,” which was essentially the first practical typewriter. While the “printing” machine was slow and crude, it contained all the essential features of the modern typewriter. The Marvels of Modern Mechanism (1901) states: He [Thurber] was the first to place the paper on a roller and give it longitudinal motion with provision for accurate letter and word spacing. A horizontal wheel carried on its outer edge rods to the lower end of which were affixed type and to the upper end a finger key. The wheel was turned to bring the type into place and in turning inked the type by drawing the type-face over inked rollers.

The wheel was turned to bring the type into place and in turning inked the type by drawing the type-face over inked rollers. When the finger key was pressed it forced the type on the lower end of the rod against the paper on the cylinder or platen and printed. 

Thurber's machine had two interrelated innovations — the cylindrical paper carriage and the line shift mechanism when the carriage returned. These innovations were incorporated into manual typewriters and some electric typewriters for over a century. However, because Thurber’s prototype was clunky and slow, it was never manufactured and a museum in Worcester, Massachusetts contains the only model in existence (see image, right).

Today in History: Galileo demonstrated his first telescope
On August 25, 1609 — 405 years ago today — Galileo Galilei demonstrated his first telescope to the Doge of Venice (the doge was the political leader of Venice) and a small group of Venetian legislators. Although Galileo did not invent the telescope, he vastly improved the invention as a device to systematically observe celestial objects. As a result, Galileo has been called “the father of modern observational astronomy” and his observations led him to champion heliocentrism, to his eventual personal detriment.

Cyborg: Color Blind Guy Has Head Antenna Implant
Neil Harbisson convinced his doctor to implant an antenna in the back of his head that stretches across the back of his head to above his forehead and helps him to see colors. Neil was born with a severe form of color blindness (achromatopsia) that only allows him to see only black or white. The implant translates colors into sounds that are piped into his brain and allows him to “musically” experience colors.

Neil has been recognized by government as the first cyborg in the world with a passport photo that includes his device (physically attached to his brain). In 2010, Neil created the Cyborg Foundation, to help humans become cyborgs to overcome physical difficulties and amplify human powers. [See http://eyeborg.wix.com/cyborg]

Today in History: Microsoft Releases “Windows 95”
On August 24, 1995 — 19 years ago today — Microsoft began shipping “Windows 95” with built-in internet support, a 32-bit architecture, and the first appearance of the Start menu, taskbar, minimize/maximize and close buttons on each window. Microsoft’s ceremonies for the release of Windows 95 were among the most celebrated marketing events in business history. Within 5 weeks of its release, a record-breaking 7 million copies had been sold, and it soon became the dominant operating system on PCs around the world. About this time, 80% of the world’s PCs were using previous versions of MS-DOS and Windows operating systems; Windows 95 provided an upgrade path for these PC users, but recommended hardware included a 486 processor and 8 MB of RAM.

About this time, 80% of the world’s PCs were using previous versions of MS-DOS and Windows operating systems; Windows 95 provided an upgrade path for these PC users, but recommended hardware included a 486 processor and 8 MB of RAM.

Coincidentally, the launch date for Windows 95 was two years to the day after Microsoft won the lawsuit brought by Apple, which charged that Microsoft infringed on Apple’s Lisa’s operating system by copying many key features. 

Oddly, Microsoft did not license Windows 95 to IBM until just 15 minutes before the release time for Windows 95. But IBM’s competitors had licensed the operating system and had Windows 95 bundled in their systems immediately upon the Windows 95 release. In a subsequent case, United States v. Microsoft, it was determined that Microsoft had intended to punish IBM with this late release to IBM (and other steps unfavorable to IBM), because IBM had been marketing its Lotus SmartSuite in competition with Microsoft Office.

An interesting view about medicine/health insurance spending — is it correct?
The U.S. spends one sixth of national income on medicine, more than on all manufacturing. But health policy experts know that we see at best only weak aggregate relations between health and medicine, in contrast to apparently strong aggregate relations between health and many other factors, such as exercise, diet, sleep, smoking, pollution, climate, and social status. Cutting half of medical spending would seem to cost little in health, and yet would free up vast resources for other health and utility gains.

Today in History: First President to ride in government car in public
On August 22, 1902 — 112 years ago today — President Theodore Roosevelt toured New England with a car ride through Connecticut and became the first U.S. president to make public appearances in an automobile while in office. At the time, The New York Times reported that the presidential car “seems to have given the people the opportunity desired of seeing him.”

Today, the presidential limousine (nicknamed “The Beast”) carries a blood tank in the trunk with the president’s blood type and resembles an armored vehicle as much as a luxury automobile. Moreover, the presidential limousine today usually travels in a motorcade with about 45 government vehicles. When the president travels to places outside Washington, D.C., the presidential limousine and backup is transported in a C-17 Globemaster IIIaircraft.

When the president travels to places outside Washington, D.C., the presidential limousine and backup is transported in a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft.

SIDENOTE 1: From The New York Times: The first president to ever ride in a car was William McKinley. It was a steam-powered vehicle. Mr. Roosevelt’s ride was the first time a United States president rode in a government car in public.

SIDENOTE 2: On September 3, 1902, while not in a car, President Roosevelt’s “carriage” was hit by a speeding trolley. The impact killed a secret service agent and Roosevelt was thrown from the carriage, narrowly escaping death. As a result of the accident, President Theodore Roosevelt spent many weeks in a wheelchair.

Today in History: Burroughs Receives Patent for Calculating Machine
On August 21, 1888 — 126 years ago today — William Seward Burroughs was granted a patent for a “calculating machine,” the first practical adding machine with market success.  Burroughs founded the American Arithmometer Company in 1886; in 1904, it would become the Burroughs Adding Machine Company; in 1953, the name changed again to the Burroughs Corporation; in 1986, Burroughs merged with the Sperry Corporation to form Unisys. 

Burroughs died in 1898 at age 41 and was posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. His grandson and great-grandson, both also named William Burroughs, were writers who achieved fame in their genres.

An interesting perspective on the bucket challenge.

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 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.

Today in space history: First spaceflight for animals safely returned to Earth
On August 19, 1960 — 54 years ago today — two dogs (Belka and Strelka), a rabbit, 42 mice, 2 rats, flies and several plants and fungi were sent into space aboard a Vostok spacecraft, the Korabl-Sputnik 2, and these passengers became the first Earth-born creatures to go into orbit and return alive.

A year after this flight, and before the Cuban Missile Crisis, one of the puppies from the litter of Strelka was presented to First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy as a goodwill present. President Kennedy’s advisers initially opposed accepting the dog for fear that it might have been planted with microphones so the Soviets could listen to national defense meetings! (Solution: Accept the goodwill gesture, and just keep the dog out of the meeting rooms!)

Today in History: Wang Laboratories files for bankruptcy
On August 18, 1992 — 22 years ago today — Wang Laboratories filed for bankruptcy protection. Just a little over 10 years earlier, Wang was the fastest growing computer company in the world — a giant compared to Apple and Microsoft, each of which was just in its early stages of development (Apple founded in 1976; Microsoft founded in 1975). Wang was co-founded in 1951 by Dr. An Wang, who had worked with Dr. Howard Aiken at Harvard on the design of the Mark IV.

Today in History: Wang Laboratories files for bankruptcy
On August 18, 1992 — 22 years ago today — Wang Laboratories filed for bankruptcy protection. Just a little over 10 years earlier, Wang was the fastest growing computer company in the world — a giant compared to Apple and Microsoft, each of which was just in its early stages of development (Apple founded in 1976; Microsoft founded in 1975). Wang was co-founded in 1951 by Dr. An Wang, who had worked with Dr. Howard Aiken at Harvard on the design of the Mark IV. Dr. Wang co-invented a device that made magnetic core memory possible; he patented the device and sold the patent to IBM in 1955 for $500,000. Wang used this money to fuel the early development of Wang Laboratories.

Wang’s first commercially successful product was a desktop electronic calculator with digital display, which it sold in incrementally improving models through the 1960s and into the early 1970s. In the early 1970s, Wang diversified into minicomputers. In the mid-1970s, Wang developed a computer dedicated to word processing, and this product quickly became the leading product in the rapidly expanding word processing industry.

In his book first published in 1995, The Road Ahead, Bill Gates wrote: 

Wang was a visionary engineer. The kind of insight that had led him to abandon calculators could have led to success in personal-computer software in the 1980s, but he failed to spot the next industry turn. Even though he developed great software, it was tied proprietarily to his word processors. His software was doomed once general-purpose personal computers appeared that could run a variety of word-processing software applications such as WordStar, WordPerfect, and MultiMate (which imitated Wang software). If Wang had recognized the importance of compatible software applications, there might not be a Microsoft today. I might be a mathematician or an attorney somewhere, and my adolescent foray into personal computing might be little more than a distant personal memory.

Dr. Wang was a cigarette smoker who developed esophagus cancer and died in 1990, after he had installed his son as president of the company and alienated a significant number of individuals who may have been better qualified for the position. The company began to lose its way with Dr. Wang’s failing health and the disenchantment of much of the bureaucracy at the installation of Dr. Wang’s son as president.

In the year before his death, Dr. Wang replaced his son as president with a former G.E. executive, Richard Miller. At this time, Wang began to focus on software, particularly its imaging software, and consultancy work. Wang emerged from bankruptcy protection on September 21, 1993. At the height of its growth, Wang had revenues of $3 billion and employed more than 30,000 people. After bankruptcy reorganization, Wang had revenues of less than $1 billion and only employed 6,000 people. For the remainder of the 1990s, Wang specialized in international network technology and catered to the financial services industry. In 1999, a Dutch information technology company, Getronics NV, bought Wang for $1.8 billion.

SIDENOTE 1: I worked at Wang from 1978 to 1985 when it experienced its most rapid growth. I asked Dr. Wang once, “to what do you most attribute your amazing success?” Dr. Wang looked intensely perplexed, then suddenly burst out laughing with this response: “Good luck.” Dr. Wang had much good luck for many years, becoming a billionaire for a time, being honored by President Ronald Reagan with the Presidential Medal of Freedom award for business and economics, becoming known as one of Boston’s greatest philanthropists, and leaving a successful business in the hands of his son. Does nepotism generate bad luck? Maybe sometimes.

SIDENOTE 2: For Ray Kurzweil fans (count me in), it’s interesting to note that Ray Kurzweil was retained by the Creditors Committee in this bankruptcy filing as its technology expert to guide the committee on its best course of action. According to Kurzweil Technologies, 

Ray was Wang's principal technology advisor in the negotiation of the Wang - Microsoft Strategic Alliance Agreement. This unique and historic agreement provides for incorporating Wang's imaging software in every copy of Windows95 (with Wang's logo in the splash screen), a $90 million investment in Wang preferred stock, strategic marketing agreements and other valuable provisions. Industry analysts evaluated the deal as worth over $150 million to Wang, and the increase in Wang's market value has been consistent with these estimates.

Capitalist Dream: Privatize Profits, Socialize Losses
From the linked article: The arrangement bears a notable resemblance to the subprime-mortgage-lending industry of a decade ago, with private equity playing the role of the investment banks, underqualified law students serving as the equivalent of overleveraged home buyers, and the American Bar Association standing in for the feckless ratings agencies. But there is a crucial difference. When the subprime market collapsed, legislation dedicating hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to bailing out the banks had to be passed. In this case, no such action will be necessary: the private investors have, as it were, been bailed out before the fact by our federal educational-loan system.

Today in History: First Telegraph between U.S. President & U.K. Queen
On August 16, 1858 — 156 years ago today — U.S. President James Buchanan and Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom inaugurated the first transatlantic telegraph cable by exchanging greetings. The cable linked Valentia Harbor in Ireland to Trinity Bay in Newfoundland and reduced the communication time between North America and Europe from about 10 days — the time required to deliver messages by ship — to a matter of minutes (in this case, hours).

Queen Victoria’s message, which took 16 hours by Morse Code through 2,500 miles of cable, read as follows:

The cable linked Valentia Harbor in Ireland to Trinity Bay in Newfoundland and reduced the communication time between North America and Europe from about 10 days — the time required to deliver messages by ship — to a matter of minutes (in this case, hours).

Queen Victoria’s message, which took 16 hours by Morse Code through 2,500 miles of cable, read as follows:
The Queen desires to congratulate the President upon the successful completion of this great international work, in which the Queen has taken the deepest interest. The Queen is convinced that the President will join with her in fervently hoping that the electric cable, which now connects Great Britain with the United States, will prove an additional link between the two places whose friendship is founded upon their common interests and reciprocal esteem. The Queen has much pleasure in thus directly communicating with the President, and in renewing to him her best wishes for the prosperity of the United States.

President Buchanan replied:
May the Atlantic Telegraph, under the blessing of Heaven, prove to be a bond of perpetual peace and friendship between the kindred nations, and an instrument designed by Divine Providence to diffuse religion, civilization, liberty and law throughout the world.

Exponential acceleration of technology continued forward with this achievement — as the time required to send mail was reduced from 10 days by ship to hours and eventually seconds by underwater telegraph lines. Nonetheless, there was a steep learning curve in underwater cabling as this particular cable stopped working after three weeks. It would take another 7 years before investors were ready to make another attempt using more durable cabling. But by the 1870s, the technology had developed to allow for multiple messages to be simultaneously sent in either direction. In another 4 decades, an intricate network of cables connected the United States with Britain, France, and Germany.

Today, Google is investing in a $300 million new trans-Pacific cable that will connect the U.S. to Japan at transmission speeds of 60 terabits* per second (tbps) via the internet (6 channels, each capable of 10 tbps) — 10 million times faster than most users’ cable modems allow. Exponential acceleration of technology continues! 

*Terabit = one trillion bits (1,000,000,000,000)

Today in History: Panama Canal Opens
On July 15, 1914 — 100 years ago today — a colossal achievement of human engineering, the Panama Canal, opened for ship traffic, 33 years after work began. The scope of the Panama Canal “project” was so unprecedented that the American Society of Civil Engineers named this modern wonder of the world, a “monument of the millennium.”

The Canal was started by the French in 1881, but diseases (primarily yellow fever and malaria) caused a third of canal workers to become ill and many to die. Work stopped after nearly a decade of the French-led effort. Fifteen years later, in 1904, the under-construction canal was sold to the United States. The French had invested $287 million and sold their project rights to the U.S. for $40 million.

Today in History: Panama Canal Opens
On July 15, 1914 — 100 years ago today — a colossal achievement of human engineering, the Panama Canal, opened for ship traffic, 33 years after work began. The scope of the Panama Canal “project” was so unprecedented that the American Society of Civil Engineers named this modern wonder of the world, a “monument of the millennium.”

The Canal was started by the French in 1881, but diseases (primarily yellow fever and malaria) caused a third of canal workers to become ill and many to die. Work stopped after nearly a decade of the French-led effort. Fifteen years later, in 1904, the under-construction canal was sold to the United States. The French had invested $287 million and sold their project rights to the U.S. for $40 million. 

Medical knowledge had grown in the 15 years since the French attempt, and it was possible to better control the spread of diseases that plagued the French effort. Consequently, the U.S. renewed the effort to build the canal — using a system of locks. When the canal was finished, the U.S. had spent a total of $352 million, so the total canal cost, including the French investment, was $639 million [over $15.4 billion in today’s dollars]. Total recorded deaths of workers involved in building the canal were 25,609 (over 20,000 of those deaths occurred during the French initial project). The canal is about 48 miles long (77.1 kilometers); that means there were over 500 deaths for every mile of the canal.

Annual traffic has increased from about 1,000 ships in 1914 to over 15,000 ships today. Normal passage through the canal’s lock system takes about 10 hours, but this passage time does not include waiting time in backed-up ship traffic that can more than double the time of passing through the system. Nonetheless, a ship can save about 8,000 miles (over 12,500 kilometers) going through the Panama Canal instead of going around the tip of South America. 

[Interestingly, last month the government of Nicaragua approved a new massive construction project to connect the Pacific to the Atlantic oceans via a 173 mile (278 kilometers), sea-level, lock-free canal. A Chinese billionaire is reportedly the entrepreneur behind the construction of the Nicaraguan canal, expected to cost at least $50 billion.]

Today in History: NASA’s Lunar Orbiter 1 achieves lunar orbit
On August 14, 1966 — 48 years ago today — NASA’s first of 5 unmanned lunar orbiter missions, Lunar Orbiter 1, successfully achieved lunar orbit. These 5 unmanned lunar orbiter missions were designed to select Apollo manned landing sites by mapping the Moon’s surface, and they provided the first images from lunar orbit. All lunar orbiter missions were eventually instructed to crash into the Moon so they would not interfere with the upcoming manned Apollo flights.

Today in History: NASA’s Lunar Orbiter 1 achieves lunar orbit
On August 14, 1966 — 48 years ago today — NASA’s first of 5 unmanned lunar orbiter missions, Lunar Orbiter 1, successfully achieved lunar orbit. These 5 unmanned lunar orbiter missions were designed to select Apollo manned landing sites by mapping the Moon’s surface, and they provided the first images from lunar orbit. All lunar orbiter missions were eventually instructed to crash into the Moon so they would not interfere with the upcoming manned Apollo flights. (The USSR’s Luna 10 was the first successful lunar orbit mission, which occurred earlier in the year in April, 1966.)

SIDENOTE: Larry Page, CEO of Google, says that he expects project failures in GoogleX — the “moonshot” unit where extraordinary ideas are explored and engineered to feasible life. Larry understands this record of lunar missions, and he realizes that failures are necessary to learn lessons that lead to success.

Today in History: First two-way voice transmission via satellite
On August 13, 1960 — 54 years ago today — humans first conducted a two-way voice transmission on earth via satellite. The conversation took place between scientists at Bell Telephone Laboratories in New Jersey and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Goldstone, California. Echo 1 proved that microwave transmission to and from satellites in space was understood and foreshadowed the new era of global communications in which we are now immersed. 

Echo 1 was launched on August 12, 1960 and flew to a position 1,000 miles above Earth. The satellite unravelled to become a balloon, over 100 feet (30.5 meters) in diameter.

Echo 1 proved that microwave transmission to and from satellites in space was understood and foreshadowed the new era of global communications in which we are now immersed. 

Echo 1 was launched on August 12, 1960 and flew to a position 1,000 miles above Earth. The satellite unravelled to become a balloon, over 100 feet (30.5 meters) in diameter. According to NASA, To keep the sphere inflated in spite of meteorite punctures and skin permeability, a make-up gas system using evaporating liquid or crystals of a subliming solid were incorporated inside the satellite. On board were beacon transmitters for telemetry data that were powered by nickel-cadmium batteries, which were charged by 70 solar cells mounted on the balloon.

On the day of its launch, August 12, an experimental pre-recorded message by President Eisenhower was bounced off the Echo 1 and picked up by radio operators across the nation — the first ever presidential address to be broadcast via satellite.  

Scientists initially calculated that the satellite-balloon would be drawn back into the earth’s atmosphere and perish by July 1963.  However, the satellite lived much longer than estimated — not reentering the earth’s atmosphere and burning up until May 24, 1968.

Today in History: IBM Announces PC 5150
On August 12, 1981 — 33 years ago today — IBM’s announcement of its first personal computer catalyzed a colossal disruption that was already underway in the computer industry. Up to this point, IBM had become the dominant computer manufacturer by offering large, expensive “mainframe” computers that many businesses deployed in a centralized “data processing department.” However, IBM recognized that Apple, Radio Shack, Commodore et al. were building “personal computers” that individuals could increasingly afford, and IBM was determined to participate in this booming new market.

To get to market as quickly as possible, IBM used a microprocessor made by Intel (8088) and an operating system made by Microsoft.

A year after the IBM PC’s introduction, IBM had sales of $34.4 billion and profits of $4.4 billion — making it the most profitable U.S. industrial company (1982). The IBM PC and its clones (made by other manufacturers) went on to dominate the market, and by 1995 the only significant alternative to the IBM PC and clones was Apple! But 23 years after the IBM PC’s introduction, IBM sold its personal computing division to China’s Lenovo Group. Clone-manufacturers’ competitive pricing had sapped IBM PC’s profit margins, and IBM decided to focus on its more profitable services market to enterprises (big, medium, and small businesses).

Today in History: First-Man Made Object Recovered after Earth Orbit
On August 11, 1960 — 54 years ago today — the U.S. Navy retrieved from the ocean near Hawaii the first earth-orbiting satellite to decelerate into re-entry through the atmosphere and be recovered with an instrument package. The satellite demonstrated techniques that would be needed for manned-space travel. 

The intention of the program was to spy on the Soviet Union. Earlier in the year, the Soviet Union had shot down a U.S. U-2 spy plane while it was conducting espionage over the Soviet Union. The event was an embarrassment to the U.S., especially because the U.S. government first issued a statement indicating that the plane was a “weather plane” that had veered off course. The pilot of the plane, who parachuted to safety, was interrogated by the KGB and confessed to espionage.

The pilot of the plane, who parachuted to safety, was interrogated by the KGB and confessed to espionage.

As a result of the U-2 incident, the U.S. was seeking a way to conduct espionage without interference. The Department of Defense wanted a satellite to take photos — without using insecure radio transmission that the Soviet Union might disrupt — and return the photos to earth in a canister. The idea was to slow the descent of the canister by parachute and then snag the parachute shrouds with a trapeze-like hook from an Air Force plane. The canister would then be pulled on board the plane and taken to a secure location where the photographic film would be developed. If the snag attempt failed, the canister would stay afloat long enough for Navy helicopters to retrieve it, which is what happened in the Discoverer 13 mission. In subsequent Discoverer missions, planes were able to grapple the parachuting canister.

NASA recently tested its new Mars braking system and has released high definition, high resolution video (about 2 minutes). NASA is trying to use atmospheric drag as a way to slow down landing vehicles to save fuel for final maneuvers and landing procedures. The next generation of drag devices (LDSD) will need to be deployed at higher supersonic speeds to safely land vehicle, crew, and cargo on Mars.

The main goal was to see if the test saucer could reach the altitude and speeds to subsequently test breakthrough technologies needed for future Mars missions. The test was a success in that new experiences were learned about deploying parachutes at supersonic speeds.

Today in History: Two Magellans Make History
On August 10, 1990 — 24 years ago today — NASA’s Magellan spacecraft arrived at the planet Venus and was inserted into a near-polar elliptical orbit. Magellan mapped 98% of the surface of Venus using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) to determine the topographic relief. Radio communications were lost with Magellan on October 12, 1994. Magellan was launched by the Space Shuttle Atlantis in early May, 1989 (see photo - Magellan being deployed from the Atlantis cargo bay).

On August 10, 1519 — 495 years ago today — Ferdinand Magellan set sail from Seville, Spain with 5 ships and 270 men in the first successful attempt to travel around the Earth.

Earthquake-fracking link clear???
Tell me if you don't exclaim “What the frack!” after reading just this one paragraph from the linked article: Scientists say the connection between increased seismic activity and fracking is clear, but there's still a lot we don't understand. And that's because there's a lot about fracking that we don't actually know. We don't know the pressure at which wastewater is injected, and we don't know how deep into the ground wastewater is injected—it could be “The depth of injection matters," Williams said [Robert Williams is a geophysicist for the U.S. Geological Survey]. “If it's really deep, the pore pressure changes affect where faults have more energy to release... But the operators of these wells aren't required to produce this information in detail."

The company’s flagship product was its web browser, Netscape Navigator — the pathway chosen by virtually all new users to access the web (its market share peaked at about 88%). The browser enabled users to connect to the world and its web of fruitful sites — more widely and faster than ever before; it was directly responsible for popularizing the web — taking the web from obscurity to making it nearly ubiquitous in 2 years. Netscape’s stock on IPO day opened at $28 a share and closed at over double that price at $58 a share. Demand for the stock was so great that trading could not open for almost 2 hours. By December, 1995, Netscape stock peaked at $171 a share.

About the same time, however, Microsoft recognized the potential of this new browsing web, and it wanted to have its own browsing product. In early 1995, the same year as Netscape’s IPO, Microsoft licensed “Mosaic,” which was the browsing code developed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign — to create a rival to the Netscape browser, called “Internet Explorer.” Interestingly, the Microsoft-Mosaic agreement stipulated that Microsoft would pay a royalty from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer revenue, but Microsoft quickly bundled Internet Explorer with Windows and thus earned no direct revenues on Internet Explorer. Subsequently, Microsoft was sued by the Mosaic licenser and Microsoft settled the suit for $8 million. 

By offering its browser free as part of the Windows operating system, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) browser became the dominant browser within 4 years of the Netscape IPO.  On May 18, 1998, the United States sued Microsoft for committing monopolization by bundling the IE browser with its already dominant Windows desktop software. Microsoft ultimately settled the case, but not until its IE browser had become the runaway dominant browser.

On November 28, 1998, American Online (AOL) announced it would acquire Netscape Communications and the deal was closed on March 17, 1999. By November 2007, Microsoft’s IE had over 75% of the browser market, while Netscape had diminished to less than 1%.

“What goes up must come down.” ~Isaac Newton

Afternote: On January 7, 2003, Apple released a public beta of its first web browser, Safari. And 5 years later, in September 2008, Google released a beta version of its new freeware web browser, Chrome. As of July 2014, Chrome has become the leading browser of choice for users worldwide.

Words of Wisdom
Ray Kurzweil offers simple advice, without adding pressure to whatever situation you are in. It may take time to find what you are most passionate about (other than personal romantic relationships), but when you find what your passion is, Google+ is the best place for sharing that passion with other people, building a community around your passion, and learning as much as you can about it.

Today in History: Patent Granted for “Individual Publishing 1.0” (Mimeograph) Device
On August 8, 1876 — 138 years ago today — Thomas Edison, the prolific inventor with over 1,000 U.S. patents in his name, was awarded U.S. patent 180,857 for an “autographic printing” process [http://edison.rutgers.edu/patents/00180857.PDF]. This patent included an “electric pen” device along with a cast-iron holder with a wooden insert, a cast-iron flatbed with ink-roller, and wet-cell battery that was wired to an electric motor. The pen was used to stencil on firm blotting paper on a flat surface by minutely perforating the paper. Four years later in 1880, Edison obtained U.S. patent 224,665 [http://edison.rutgers.edu/patents/00224665.PDF] for a process making stencils using a file plate — a grooved metal plate on which a blunt metal stylus could perforate a stencil and through which ink couldsqueeze to make c... altro »

Four years later in 1880, Edison obtained U.S. patent 224,665 [http://edison.rutgers.edu/patents/00224665.PDF] for a process making stencils using a file plate — a grooved metal plate on which a blunt metal stylus could perforate a stencil and through which ink could squeeze to make copies when a drum with the stencil attached to it was pressed into paper. 

The process was not so simple at first, so Thomas Edison licensed the technology to Alfred Blake Dick, who made improvements to it and marketed it as “Edison’s mimeograph” (in fact, he coined the term “mimeograph”). The machine became popular because any individual with just a little instruction could print hundreds or thousands of copies at much lower cost than traditional print — thus, “individual publishing 1.0” it may have been. 

Interesting Side Story: At age 19, in 1866, Edison got a job at Western Union, where he quickly requested the night shift on the Associate Press bureau’s news-wire. He wanted the night shift so he could conduct experiments. About a year into the job, while working with a lead-acid battery, Edison spilled sulfuric acid onto the floor and it ran between the floorboards and dropped onto his boss’s desk below.

Today in History: The Mark I Computer is Presented to Harvard
On August 7, 1944 — 70 years ago today — the Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator (ASCC), now known as the Harvard Mark I was officially presented to Harvard University by Thomas J. Watson Sr., president of IBM. The Mark I computer was developed over a period of 6 years by Harvard University Professor Howard D. Aiken in collaboration with IBM engineers. Howard Aiken conceived of and designed the computer, while IBM built it in Endicott, NY.

The Mark I weighed 5 tons, was 51 feet long, 8 feet high, and its functional capacity was less than the computing power in a simple electronic wristwatch of today. It had a 50 foot long camshaft that synchronized the machine’s thousands of parts, and it was primarily used to produce mathematical tables — to help determine ballistic trajectories and to do calculations involvedin the ... altro »

This Day in History: Tim Berners-Lee Unleashes the Web
On August 6, 1991 — 23 years ago today — Tim Berners-Lee posted a summary of his World Wide Web project to the Internet’s alt-hypertext newsgroup. Tim simultaneously released 3 items: (1) the WorldWideWeb for NeXT computers; (2) the line-mode browser, and (3) the basic server for any machine. As Tim explains, “Putting the Web out on alt.hypertext was a watershed event…. The most valuable thing happening was that people who saw the Web, and realized the sense of unbounded opportunity, began installing the server and posting information… The Web began to be picked up by people around the world.” Nonetheless, as Martin Bryant wrote (August 6, 2011, TheNextWeb.com) about this day, “...most people around the world didn’t even know what the Internet was. Even if they did, the revolution the Web ushered in was still but a twinklein Tim Berners-Le... altro »

How Google Works - New Book
I just pre-ordered this book. Here's at excerpt from its description on Google Play: HOW GOOGLE WORKS is an entertaining, page-turning primer containing lessons that Eric [Schmidt] and Jonathan [Rosenberg] learned as they helped build the company. The authors explain how technology has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers, and that the only way to succeed in this ever-changing landscape is to create superior products and attract a new breed of multifaceted employees whom Eric and Jonathan dub "smart creatives."
