It's not SEO. It's honesty.
Coming across a Twitter conversation on SEO last week a question popped up asking whether SEO should be part of a college curriculum and I thought "How would Google answer that?" It has to be "no", ri...

Very interesting report from Eric Schmidt on the connectivity of North Korea
 
Here is an edited version of my comments when Governor Richardson's delegation returned from Pyongyang:

I wanted to thank Governor Richardson for inviting my crew along on this trip. This was a private visit to North Korea to talk about the free and open Internet. The North Koreans showed up, listened to us and asked us a lot of questions.

Overall, the technology in North Korea is very limited right now.

There is a 3G network that is a joint venture with an Egyptian company called Orascom. It is a 2100 Megahertz SMS-based technology network, that does not, for example, allow users to have a data connection and use smart phones. It would be very easy for them to turn the Internet on for this 3G network. Estimates are that are about a million and a half phones in the DPRK with some growth planned in the near future.

There is a supervised Internet and a Korean Intranet. (It appeared supervised in that people were not able to use the internet without someone else watching them). There’s a private intranet that is linked with their universities. Again, it would be easy to connect these networks to the global Internet.

They also demonstrated their software and technology based on open source (mostly Linux) and it was obvious to us that access to the Internet and all of this was possible for the government, the military, and universities, but not for the general public.

As the world becomes increasingly connected, the North Korean decision to be virtually isolated is very much going to affect their physical world and their economic growth. It will make it harder for them to catch up economically.

We made that alternative very, very clear. Once the internet starts in any country, citizens in that country can certainly build on top of it, but the government has to do one thing: open up the Internet first. They have to make it possible for people to use the Internet, which the government of North Korea has not yet done. It is their choice now, and in my view, it’s time for them to start, or they will remain behind.

Thank you.

"Some truth: things are different, but not that different. It’s still just people, only with new boxes between them. Old wisdom is good wisdom, even in new media. Anyone who says otherwise has something to gain by persuading you to believe in certain things and behave in certain ways."

It’s another Full-length Friday! In this 60-minute video caught live at An Event Apart Boston 2012, Jared M. Spool discusses the surprisingly unintuitive logic behind the creation of “intuitive” websites.

The opt-out component doesn't bother me as much but the delayed toolbar installer is ugly ball.
