Guess who's coming to... breakfast?
 
Polar bear wanting to come in for breakfast at Seal River Lodge ( http://www.churchillwild.com/about-us/our-lodges/seal-river-heritage-lodge/ ). This photo, by Terry Allen, appeared in the +Daily Mail yesterday in the story Knock knock, who's bear? Thanks to Jill Bankey, one of our guests at Seal River Lodge way back in 2008 on the Great Ice Bear Adventure, for finding and sharing this on Twitter along with her comments:  reminds me of my great trip! Would love to be back there. Story and more photos here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2960196/Knock-knock-s-bear-Inquisitive-polar-bear-invites-dinner-smelling-food-inside-photographer-s-wooden-cabin.html #polarbears #adventuretravel #wildlifephotography #arctic #safaris

Adding value to the conversation and more #SEO goodies :) Thanks to +David Amerland for the share.
 
Creating Value in your Content in a Semantic Web

The +SEMrush blog page of the TwitChat I took part in last week is a lesson in iteself in repurposing content from one channel to another and taking the time to format it so that it becomes shareworthy in its own right. The page is a work of art and an abject lesson to what we mean by creating value in a semantic search world. Notice this is a blogpost that has taken a bunch of Tweets and through clever editing and great design managed to create something that truly adds value to the conversation.

This will make you think about the future. Guaranteed. Thanks to +martin shervington for sharing.
 
ABSOLUTE MUST SEE. (I DON'T USE ALL CAPS OFTEN)
And the meaning of this is 'don't play games against the computer' as it "ruthlessly exploits the weakness of the system"...

Um, yes. Ok...

Ready. Set. Go!
 
Ok, everyone ready? Fasten your seat belts!  Professional photographer Richard Voliva captured this curious polar bear inspecting one of our planes just outside Seal River Lodge, 60 km north of Churchill on the Hudson Bay coast. The flight was beautiful :) #polarbears #travel #photography

True.
 
Many entrepreneurs focus their energy on coming up with a brilliant idea, assuming that everything else will fall into place once they have that figured out. But what so many miss is that the idea is only the first step. What separates the good ideas that become great products from those that remain ideas is the team involved.

Ed Catmull nails this point in Creativity, Inc. when he says: “give a good idea to a mediocre team, and they will screw it up. Give a mediocre idea to a great team, and they will either fix it or come up with something better.” 

Big, clever ideas are important for inspiring and attracting the best people, but it’s the team you build that will truly determine your success.

Worth reading.
 
December 7, 1941. The young sailor in this picture was at Pearl Harbor 70 years ago today. He was a flight mechanic, and when the attack started he ran to the hanger where his airplane was located so he could defend his country. It was too late - enemy bombs hit the hanger as he was running towards it, and it exploded right before his eyes. Later, though he would never talk about it much, he had to pull bodies out of the water. It must have been terrible.

This sailor's name was Robert Gordon - and he was my Father. The woman next to him is my Mother, who he met at a USO dance sometime during the war. These pictures of them were taken before I existed. Like many of that generation, he didn't talk about the war much. I know he was not hurt at Pearl Harbor- he went on to fight in the Pacific theater, but later took a bullet in the leg when his plane got shot up. Somehow though, he survived . Lot's of American's who fought in the Pacific in those years didn't.

His life was never easy. He had grown up as an orphan in the great depression - it couldn't have been a cakewalk - but he survived. For if he hadn't, I wouldn't be here to be writing this. They both survived, and they formed a partneship that went on for more than 40 years - raising children - one of whom didn't make it, building businesses, some of which failed, and in general having all the joy and pain that life can throw at you.

As I have gotten older, I have become more respectful of the simple act of survival. We hear people bragging about their accomplishments all the time - talking about how successful they are, and giving us lectures about hard work and initiative - but we don't really know what their starting point was. What gifts did nature give them? What lucky circumstances did they find themselves in? Who helped them along the way? - sometimes that all seems to have conveniently forgotten.

It is something we need to remember now and again. The debt of gratitude we owe to those who came before us - we don't want to waste their sacrifice. They survived and passed the energy of life forward so that we could make it to this particular moment in space and time. We owe it to them to do the best we can.
