There are some amazing art pieces in downtown San Jose that focus on the Mexican migrant labor work force and how it shaped (and pushed against) the existing culture in California. As a decedent of a migrant farm workers from Chihuahua who found themselves “chambeando en California”, it hit pretty hard. 

PCMag is trying to ignite a controversy about Twitter’s ‘dark pool’. I think it’s undeserved. For Twitter, the ‘dark pool’ is Twitter users who don’t tweet. And in Twitter’s case, a large dark pool is ok. Even if it is as large as 44% of your usage base. Here’s why:

Twitter is a real-time news delivery vehicle more than it is a social network. You don’t have to tweet to derive value from the platform in the way you have to interact and have mutual “friendships” on a platform like Facebook. Looking at “Activity” on a platform without looking at traffic levels is a meaningless. Visitors see ads whether they tweet or not, meaning they have value beyond the activity this article tries to quantify.

I’d challenge PCMag and the research company to look at more “broadcast-like” social platforms and not find the same data. YouTube comes to mind a great place to start. I’d venture to say that at least 44% of YouTube users don’t upload videos. And they seem to be doing ok…

  • Why sine is opposite over hypotenuse and so on
  • Why cosine is simply sine but offset by pi/2 radians

watched this video from vision with the kids yesterday and got to thinking…. skate vids like this from the 80s are great model for the branded content era of today. here’s how it worked then and should work now.

step 1. make something rad that captures the passions of your audience.

step 2: distribute through an underground network of “influencers” and super fans.

step 3: profit. and watch it still matter thirty years later.

 

I’m a newly minted head full of innovation. Have no idea how this happened.

Alone, unused and tucked into the corner of the room, this is the state of computers for most of the first ten seasons of the show: a shared resource used only occasionally as needed, turned off more often than not, and dotted with Post-It notes left for other users.
