Welcome to the world of Minority Report.
 
It's now possible to predict eye color and skin color more accurately than people can self-describe, the shape of the face, ears, and hair color, using machine learning on the genetic code. Facial asymmetry and baldness still can't be predicted.

You put in a DNA sequence file, and all these predictions pop out, and then you solve crimes. It's going to be like CSI in real life. You can predict what newborns will look like when they're 18.

John Boyd told you so. The multi-mission fighter is doomed from conception. So many projects formulated by committees or "business partnerships" are flawed as well.

Good isn't good enough in the content game the days. 
If we're talking about creating "good, unique content" and are hoping for it to rank in competitive SERPs, we're not setting the right bar. In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand shows us what we should be going for instead.

“If you are not doing it smart and you’re not being strategic, then you are nothing more than a content polluter.” Good takeaway.

When Google starts recommending that you follow Google Plus collections [topics around your interests ] based on what it gleans from your searches, that's an opportunity for savvy social media marketers. Might be time to adapt, and stop treating Google Plus as third fiddle behind Twitter and Facebook.
It's been a rough ride for Google+. Columnist Mark Traphagen delves into the early vision for the social network, what has emerged from those changes, and what the new direction will mean for marketers.

NYTimes puts together some nice data visualizations and interactive tools. Is it better to buy a house or rent?
