Personal Assistants Begin To Make a Real Impact

It's not every day that a disembodied voice integrated in a phone saves a life but it is, indeed, happening as more and more of us begin to rely on voice activated searches and commands to run our devices. A few instances where Apple's Siri has played a critical role in saving people's lives ( highlight the degree to which technology becomes seamlessly integrated in our everyday life and what would have been science fiction just five years ago is now considered the norm.

There is a reason coffee is the national drink at Amerlandia, as a matter of fact there is a municipal service that feeds cold coffee to every home in the Summer. ;) We shall all live long and prosper there. :)

Not What It Seems

Piracy, as an act that fits within human economic behavior, is governed by the same dynamic that makes a company profitable and a business sustainable. In other words it has (or had) a place in the wider social construct that saw it as an acceptable behavior that acted as a counterbalance to something else. The moment that changed, piracy was gone. It's an interesting lesson to learn. Dive in:

+David C Cardillo My guess is that libertarian ideology will be hard to penetrate with that reasoning, or any other argument because, like all other hypotheses that have never been truly tested in the crucible of the full spectrum of conflicted values expressed through human sociality, the map is easy to defend in light of no real world evidence.

Mapping the Sky

Over at the #Cloudwars community we are mapping the sky's every morphogenesis (and there are many!). ;)

Clouds Chasing Each Other

I quickly snapped this one this afternoon. The wind has created downward pressure that's caused the clouds to crash on top of the mountain and, at the same time, it is pushing the clouds across it, heading south, towards the sea. The more sharp-eyed amongst you will see two dog-nosed clouds in the foreground, busy chasing each other. ;)

Google Patent Search Uses Boolean Operators

Those who have been following my writings and interviews know that semantic search is a Big Data issue: For constrained, highly classified data sets, like patents for example, Boolean search - (the keyword driven search of pre-2012) is faster and arguably more accurate.

Google has a patent search that uses Boolean Operators which helps you find patents from all over the world. When you are in a hurry this is perfect. Check it out:

Doing What No Human Doctor Can

Taking readings from 30,000 points on the organ structure per heartbeat a machine learning algorithm learnt to predict future heart failure with greater accuracy than human doctors. This is not taking away from the human skill, it is enhancing it by using Big Data in a way we are not designed to do. It's an amazing addition in our toolset and a true augmentation of our capabilities. 
Technology could be used to improve treatment for heart failure patients.

Identity and the Mind

Who we are is never who we say we are. The true self is what is left when all the layers we add in order to get through a day are stripped away and what we are left with is the core. That is when we truly understand our beliefs and motivation.

+Iblis Bane we are very good at self-delusion. Identity is a many-layered thing comprised out of connectivity in the brain. Disrupt the brain with sleeplessness, alcohol, physical and mental exhaustion and what is revealed is the core and that's when things get very interesting, very quickly.

Author, Speaker, Analyst.

The world is changing. Showing how is part of what I do. I travel a lot (less than I used to). G+ is my home in more ways than one. In one way or another, all of us here, are part of a vanguard that "gets" the change that's happening.  

In my posts, interviews and podcasts I add pieces to the puzzle. I explain how each one fits in a bigger picture. How that bigger picture then makes sense. 

Sensemaking changes everything.

Before I got here, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing, speaking and blogging. 

In my offline time I indulge a lifelong passion in martial arts, I run, hit the heavy bag and try to find the limits at which we can go without sleep and still function. I also visit as many museums and cafes as possible. Funnily enough I regard what can be found in both museums and cafes as brain food. 

Fitness is important to me. It helps maintain a level of sanity that would otherwise require pharmaceuticals or expensive therapy. I pay some of what it has given me back by running  a Fitness Community. I am also a moderator of Plus Your Business a community focused on helping business people get the most out of G+ and the semantic web. 

Speaking of semantics, I am the owner of Google Semantic Search a community I started to explore the implications of semantic technology in daily life (and there are many) and I also own and post a lot in the SEO Help Community.

Professionally I advise a handful of companies globally, blog for a number of websites, including Forbes,, and socialmediatoday and write for magazines and newspapers. 

I give about 50 talks, speeches and presentations each year and hold an annual seminar on SEO and Social Media (details to which you will find on my website.). I advise a couple  of global companies and a handful of startups on social media positioning and search strategies and I write for Forbes, 21CIT, Insights and a number of dead-tree newspapers. 

Some of the Events  I have been part of:
  • SEO in the Sun (SEO & Introduction to Social Media)
  • Manchester SES (SEO)
  • Business Group Digital Conference (SEO & Social Media)
  • Rutgers University mini-MBA (SEO and Social Media Crisis Management)
  • Shanghai APAC executive SEO & Social Media Crisis Management training.
  • MxDE Senior Executive Program, Zug (Piercing the Search Bubble).
  • SMX East (keynote speech on Entities in semantic search)
  • Semantic Technology & Business Conference panelist
  • SMX London

Currently working on:
  • Working on a writing project about which I can't yet say anything. (Sorry)
If you made it this far you might be interested to know that now all of my writing is curated (without comment) at Prometheus. I no longer use RSS on my website and the G+ Page here gives me the opportunity to archive all my writing across the web.  I have, however, created an RSS feed for it so you can keep track of everything I write here.

The best way to reach me is through Google+ or my website:

Two-floor gym with some superb equipment and really friendly staff. I found it by accident when I was looking for a place to train and I have been a member now for the last three years. Whenever I am in Greece it's where I can be found when not working. ;) It is professionally run, has great opening hours and the membership fee includes classes as well as the use of the equipment. Of the many gyms that can be found in Patras this is one of the best. You will not be disappointed.

There are several things that make a bar by the sea: First the sea. On this Mare Mare is unrivaled. There are tables that are practically within five steps from where the waves break. The setting has been nicely decorated and on a hot summer night it feels brilliant. Second, the service. You do want to feel that everything is as magical and special as the setting and sea and here, unfortunately Mare Mare fails to deliver. Water, comes in plastic disposable cups (and it's not cold). The waiters are not trained and although they do try hard, their best is not sufficient substitute for a system to working the tables that allows the patrons to get their drinks in time without having to wait for more than forty thirty minutes (for a couple of drinks) and an additional twenty (for ice-cream ordered at the same time as the drinks, which came half melted). Consider the fact that you do spend money there and the prices are not cheap, the level for service is deplorable. If you really want to enjoy the sound of the waves and the simmering play of moonlight on the surface of the sea grab a rag and a portable cooler and spend some time on the beach, just five meters away. It's free and you get to supply your own drinks, but then again you won't get frustrated by an order that will come in parts, late and be disappointing.

Googleplex has a feel and atmosphere that is uniquely its own. I had relatively little time to spend there but the place is totally addictive. It thrums with intent and everyone you meet is dead earnest about their ability to change the world and have an impact. Plus you really got to love a place where ideas simply flow across every conversation.

Huge hotel with some history practically across the road from Penn Station, in Manhattan. Brief stay over three days it feels totally impersonal so if you want a more cosy feel this is definitely not the place to be. It is incredibly busy and often feels like a massive bus stop with crowds coming in and equally large numbers leaving. The lobby is massive. There is a concierge service but what they do exactly is hard to tell. A quick question on how to get somewhere resulted in my having to use my phone and Google maps any way. Then again this is NYC and the whole city feels like this. It adds to a s sense of imperative and speed that carries you along so you hardly notice the imperfections.

Budget hotel chosen for its proximity to a speaking venue. Great bar and restaurant and the staff were extremely friendly. It was clean, efficient and lived up to everything one might expect from a place like this.

No visit to Paris can be complete without at least one trip to the S=arc De Triomphe. I walked the route rather than drive and it allowed me to take in the Seine river barges that were very much Highlander in style (for those who know the TV series). Totally loved the change of the guard.
