The real danger is the gradual erosion of individual liberties through automation, integration, and interconnection of many small, separate record-keeping systems, each of which alone may seem innocuous, even benevolent, and wholly justifiable. -- Anonymous (U. S. Privacy Study Commission, 1977) ht @ptwobrussell&@dreasoning

Launch of the Knowledge Transfer Network, April 1st 2014
 
The important news this month is to reiterate that as of 1st April most of the current Knowledge Transfer Networks are merging to become a single company.  
Over the next few months, in line with the new company and organisational arrangements, you will notice some changes in branding and tweaks to better represent the interdisciplinary nature of innovation.  
The unified organisation will consist of communities, and the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network (including the Design Special Interest Group) will very much continue to exist as the Creative Industries community of The KTN. 
It’s certainly a case of evolution not revolution. Rest assured membership will still be free and the vast majority of current KTN staff have joined the new company and can be reached on firstname.lastname@ktn-uk.org. You are most likely to have the same point of contact you always did but it will now be easier to make connections for you across sectors and disciplines - especially between those who might not normally meet. 
Chris Warkup is the CEO of The KTN and the senior leadership team for knowledge transfer comprises Frank Boyd, Sue Dunkerton, Carol Boyer Spooner and Steve Welch.
Our main hub offices are currently in Edinburgh, Runcorn, Oxford, Cambridge, Horsham and London but the nature of the new organisation means we have many other staff placed throughout the rest of the country who are able to provide a face to face service. 
You’ll notice that the communities are largely former KTNs and the “key communities” identified by the Technology Strategy Board. One of the ambitions of the change is to present a more coherent structure aligned to the Technology Strategy Board and Catapults. 
The new structure will still support the networking within our Creative Industries community but will encourage more interaction at the interface with others. Where communities combine to form a medium term set of activities – this will be a Group. Overlaying the whole KTN will be business programmes supporting Horizon 2020, Sustainability, Access to Finance and International. 
We’ll still be very interested in supporting priority areas as identified within our Creative Industries Strategy 2013-16 but these new organisational changes mean you can share your technologies, solutions and expertise with other markets more effectively and also more easily benefit from innovative ideas and collaborations from other places.   
A full list of communities and generic email addresses is below. We are in the process of pulling together a full list of contact points across the company that we will be able to share shortly.

TalkApolis and Dev Digital announce Middle TN social video network.

Nashville, Tennessee. April 10th 2014 — TalkApolis Inc http://TalkApolis.com/ and Dev Digital http://DevDigital.com/ announced a strategic partnership which adds 140,000 Facebook followers to its Middle TN focused audience.   

Dev Digital is a Nashville based hybrid development firm and owner of the largest Nashville area Facebook page.  TalkApolis Inc is a social media video network offering advertisers a lower cost alternative to TV.     

The two companies’ combined audience is 350,000 stretching from Bowling Green to Huntsville including the largest geographically focused Facebook pages in Nashville and Chattanooga.

A TalkApolis show -- The Entrepreneurial Mind with Dr. Jeff Cornwall --  was named by Forbes Magazine as among the country’s top resources for entrepreneurs in November 2013.  TalkApolis’s social content includes video, links and images ‘broadcast’ to mobile news feeds and managed by a single back-end system that automates and schedules promotions for optimal effect.

TalkApolis customers are businesses traditionally dependant on local TV advertising. It’s developed a stable of sponsors well known to local TV audiences.   http://talkapolis.com/sponsors-list 

Facebook announced a similar product aimed at national TV advertisers in December.

I thought David Siegel did such an excellent job in "Pull: The Power of the Semantic Web to Transform Your Business" explaining what a gigafied American ecosystem would do for business. HBR has about 1000 articles which come up when you search on #IoT related topics. Back in the day, I contracted at Saturn/GM Spring Hill Manufacturing where everything on the line had a sensor collecting and transmitting data real time. Last time I e-chatted with David he said he changed directions in his consulting because US business execs just were not "getting it". Fortunately, the Chinese business community is sharper http://theinternetofallthings.com/intel-sets-us-100-mln-fund-smart-device-innovation-iot-news-2014-04-02/ #Collaboration_Infrastructure
