Troll disruption taken more seriously by Twitter?  Could it be social media is entering an adulthood?
 
Crowd-sourced blacklists, an interesting idea, and a sign that Twitter is taking its troll problem more seriously.

I wonder though what kind of abuse this leaves the platform open to. Imagine an innocent person being thrown onto a list like this for some reason (spite, revenge, blackmail) and the list becoming widely distributed. What recourse would they have?

Mute and block are tools to help you control your Twitter experience. While many users find them useful, we also recognise that some users — those who experience high volumes of unwanted interactions on Twitter — need more sophisticated tools. That’s where this new feature comes in. You can now export and share your block lists with people in your community facing similar issues or import another user’s list into your own account and block multiple accounts all at once, instead of blocking them individually. We also hope these advanced blocking tools will prove useful to the developer community to further improve users’ experience.”

#twitter #trolls #speech


For those who have considered quitting Twitter because of the unnecessary tweets they are subject to, now have relief offered by Twitter.

I'm proud to be a member of Jean's organization. They've done amazing things, with more to come.  The NCAA governance change project is but one example.
“…With the problems [it] faces, and with a recently reelected leader who seems unable to accept responsibility, is FIFA…worth being saved?”  ...the U.S. Department of Justice unsealed its 47-count indictment against those individuals has focused on how FIFA’s governance structure—which gives its 209 member-nations and each one’s soccer association equal voting rights—made it susceptible to widespread wrongdoing.      _____________________________...

What's the Reality of the Life Cycle of Teams in Family Businesses?
Family teams and groups of owners/partners with longstanding relationships have a lot of shared history, ...a source of cohesion and trust. Such trust, a by-product of safety, has been found to be a key ingredient that contributes to high performance in teams. This is an example of 3 from the article on Crouching Tigers: Sources of Competitive Advantage Regarding the  Hidden Dragons: Unseen Fault Lines One example, that you may intuitively know, ...

Successful organizations focus on people as well as profits, often built with talented staff that take action, acting as if they are co-owners of the business. In many ways, they are. Choosing twenty-first century talent retention practices increases that sense of staff ownership to the greater success of your organization. Here’s are 4 ways leaders can help this happen:1) Check your “hire smart” bench strength & compensation Nothing breeds succe...

Making a difference in leadership development, thanks to insightful McKinsey research:
ip McKinsey's recent research points to a small subset of leadership skills that closely correlates with leadership success, particularly among frontline leaders.

From another article from the New York Times in ongoing coverage,  “G.M.'s decision-making, structure, process and corporate culture stood in the way of safety.”  
"The ignition-switch crisis is cementing G.M.'s status as one of the deadliest automotive safety issues in American history." _____________________     GM's...internal investigation showed that dozens of engineers, lawyers and investigators had known about ignition problems for years but failed to fix them._____________________     The GM ignition switch has gained notoriety because the defect was essentially hidden for a decade until G.M. began ...

Getting more complete view of the good, bad and the murky is useful to help plan realistically for what 2015 and 2016 may bring for hiring and business planning. ~  Deb
It now appears that soft numbers in 2015 on consumer spending, durable goods orders and industrial activity were telling us something meaningful.    The nation added only 126,000 jobs in March, while the unemployment rate was unchanged at 5.5 percent. Those terrific numbers from January and February now look a bit less terrific, as revisions subtracted 69,000 positions from the previously reported job gains. In a silver lining to the soft numbers...

Very useful.  Thanks for the photos and the post on a fave spring flower - the pansy. #Michigan  #spring #garden
  When to plant pansies in Michigan?  Once winter earth's totally thawed and the soil's less saturated, pansies can be safely planted.  Mid April is normally safe for cold hardy planting in Michigan.  Before planting, harden ...

We have Uber.  We have FlexJobs. This infancy of new work has a ways to go.   Historically, "New Work and New Culture" ideas and ideals have been around by the likes of Frithjof Bergman, at the University of Michigan for several decades.  http://www.newworknewculture.com/  
Another alternative view is this: 
 
Change in the Nature of Work: The Case For "Antiwork" and the 20 hour Work Week here:  http://sco.lt/70veNt  
 for these reasons:     

"...we see the persistent belief that we can achieve 'full employment.' Rifkin showed empirically that this is nonsense, unless we create a lot of make-work, i.e., work for the sake of working. And that’s what, as a society, we seem to be doing. Everywhere you look there are stupid, pointless (and probably environmentally destructive) jobs."
Chopping up the total amount of work that needs to done in your firm into blocks that suit our human physiology has nothing to do with the actual work. If the total amount of work that needs to be done in a firm in one week equals 20,000 hours, it is just as arbitrary to chop that up into 500 40-hour work weeks as it is to chop it up into 800 blocks of 25 hours. ==============   Leaders ....realize[d] that for skilled people disillusioned with th...

Highly recommended! It is usually a challenge to find a cleaning services that is trustworthy, high quality, reliable and affordable. Paula's Cleaning wins on all accounts! I've known Paula and her team for over 10 years. I count myself as fortunate to have such great service from them over many years. She's also helped me find the resources I needed for one time, special cleaning projects connected with a recent move. Great service and trusted!

Convenient. Extended hours are nice too. Easy access. Note that two lights that I report two months ago as burned out had not yet been replaced. Hopefully they will be replaced soon, for safety's sake.
