Box CEO Aaron Levie understands that the less time you spend tied to your desk, the more connected you need to be.
It may not be as predictable as Moore's Law, but the amount of data people are sharing on Facebook is growing at blinding speed.

High school science tells us that global warming is real. And economics teaches us that humanity must have the right incentives if it is to stop this terrible trend.
The Limbo Generation, college graduates who entered the job market after the economic downturn, take dead-end jobs while waiting to start their real careers. And waiting. And waiting.

When Ashton Kutcher served as guest editor of an online-only version of Details magazine, he failed to fully disclose his investments in the companies profiled. That could draw questions from federal authorities.

After this weekend's credit downgrade, the finger-pointing reached a new level. Is it possible that The Great Depression holds the answer to economic recovery? John B. Judis of The Weekly Standard believes the 1930s show that increased government spending is the only way to get America on its feet.

the alan watts video bit is especially true.
[...] raised on a steady diet of reality TV, blogging and Facebook profiling, millennials have become not just seasoned self-broadcasters but master curators of their identity. Each operates a little like a one-man director, editor and special effects expert of the movie called self; each is a mogul of her own "me"dia.
Fresh insight from US magazine shows that pared-down management structure and tight feedback loops make Steve Jobs's thinking permeate the corporation.
Although technology positions have been open to women for quite some time, they still remain the minority in both relevant degree plans and career paths.
After a deeply scientific, irrefutable poll, we gathered, analyzed, and ranked the most sartorially-challenged metropolises in the greater United States. It may be time to plan that move youve been thinking about
Let’s go Dutch! To honor the heritage our next guest art directors, Metahaven from Amsterdam, (and to whet your appetite for the overall design aesthetic), we’ll be running profile videos of notable Dutch designers over the next few weeks. Last time it was a piece on the legendary Wim Crouwel. This week it’s a look at the fascinating experimental studio Drooglab. All videos are courtesy of Submarine Channel.

what matters most is understanding how and in which context your own core target audiences will use these increasingly connected devices and touchpoints throughout the day
Korean artist Jiyen Lee has created a series of hypnotizing digital collages that present people going up and down stairs, as seen from a bird’s eye view. Each puzzling assemblage features an unidentifiable traffic of pedestrians on an endless journey. It also remains unclear whether they are actually ascending or descending the steps in front of them, as Lee has taken the artistic liberty of reconfiguring images in unimaginable compositions. Like an M. C. Escher painting, the artist’s digitally manipulated images present a saturation of staircases with no perceivable beginning or end.
Our strict church/state-editorial/advertising divide meant we couldn’t rely on editors to create the content for us,” says James Del, executive director of Studio@Gawker. “And the sheer size of the campaign meant we needed to hire a writer and designer to work on all the content we were contracted to produce.
Individuals and companies can no longer rely on the stocks of knowledge that they’ve carefully built up and stored away. Information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into the stream. But many of us remain stuck in old practices—practices that could undermine us as we search for success and meaning.
For LinkedIn, the purchase of a service that aggregates and recommends content from a wide variety of news sources would be an interesting extension of its recent moves to bulk up the media side of its business. […] this kind of ‘interest graph’ targeting is the holy grail for both content companies and social networks. It’s the reason Facebook (FB) is constantly tweaking its News Feed, why Twitter is pouring resources into improving recommendation filters like its Discover tab and other features, and why Google (GOOG) is trying so hard to get people to share and ‘plus one’ more content through its Google+ network.
It’s not about social or mobile,” said analyst Ray Wang, CEO of Constellation Research. “The business outcomes customers seek are better customer experiences, improved engagement, greater revenue.
If there’s one piece of wisdom that this simple pilgrim would like to impart upon you: have the courage to start with the customer. My biggest regrets are the moments that I let a lack of data override my intuition on what’s best for our customers. This leadership change gives you some breathing room to break bad habits and deliver sustainable customer happiness - don’t waste the opportunity!
analyst firms like Forrester have been saying that IT’s role will change and that employees across the company will need to engage in social media
We believe in collecting and analyzing the data from 30 or 35,000 brands, understanding how these conversations come together and being able to use machine learning algorithms to analyze. We use sentiment analysis, and questioning algorithms to understand who is saying what and why, then sharing that information with the brand.
The more a country is looking forward, the more successful economically the country is.
The CMOs and marketing leaders I talk to all seriously get it. They know they need to completely change their engagement model (what they used to call marketing) to be audience/buyer/customer centric.They know that driving sustained, predictable, profitable revenue growth means that lead value, velocity, and volumes are maximized; and that this has to be done more efficiently and effectively. They get that this complex set of interrelated goals requires an integrated, holistic process automation approach that spans the marketing, sales, and service organizations of a B2B enterprise. And they know they don’t have that.
To further quote Nagar, while Facebook ‘has a massive base of users to gather data from,’ data from the social network will never be able to provide a fully comprehensive view of a consumer. Social data will be greatly beneficial in helping brands learn more about consumers, enabling them to better target consumers and provide them with personalized products and recommendations, but it isn’t a ‘magic bullet.’ Brands will need to use social data judiciously, and in tandem with other sources, to get the most informed view of consumers.
Which countries have the most foreign scientists, and which ones suffer from the worst brain drain? To answer these questions, researchers at the National Bureau of Economic Research in Massachusetts conducted a Web-based survey of over 17 000 published scientists in 16 countries.

Sure, the Everything Is Breaking News All the Time business model keeps readers and viewers entertained. But it also makes them cranky, suspicious, and misinformed.
Values, which serve as a kind of architectural framework, underpin a brand. This keeps the brand solid and consistent. In other words, a brand is a little like a person you form a trusting relationship with; you rely on it to perform.
It’s also possible, the Google team said, that a platform that has insufficient guidelines doesn’t nudge people in the right way. Only Google, of course, knows what that “right way” really is, but Horowitz stressed that Google wants Google to be “something more than just ego-casting” and a place for watering virtual plants.
It didn’t just start the conversation, it’s continuing the conversation,” he said. “This is not just ‘15 seconds of fame, go on to the next story.’ This story is going to be 24/7 [for a while]. There’s a reason why people call this ‘old media.’ That’s because it took 500 years to build up this tradition. You don’t just throw the white flag and say, ‘OK, everything is digital now.’
Sony’s gravest mistake was that it failed to ride some of the biggest waves of technological innovation in recent decades: digitalization, a shift toward software and the importance of the Internet.
