#Google  moves forward in its plans to give free #wifi  to the world by converting an estimated 10,000 old #NYC  phone booths into ad-supported Wi-Fi pillars with a Google backed startup, +Sidewalk Labs. The converted booths will also have cell-phone charging, free domestic phone calls and a tablet interface with information about the city and transit directions. The pillars will be launched across #NewYork  this autumn.

From Bookkeeper to Hollywood Legend
Carl Laemmle was born in Laupheim, Germany in 1867.  He emigrated to the United States in 1884, as a penniless 17- year old. In Chicago, he married, settled, had a son, and worked for 20 years as a bookkeeper and office manager.

His career took a turn when, in the early 1900's, nickelodeons started popping up all around the country. These were indoor exhibition halls, usually converted storefronts. For the price of a nickel, customers could enter, sit down (usually on crude, rather uncomfortable wooden benches), and watch projected motion pictures. These were short films (10-15 minutes in length), illustrated songs (their version of music videos), documentaries or scenics (no plot, no dialogue -- just a camera mounted on a train as it chugged across the country side).

Carl bought his first nickelodeon in 1906, and soon after bought several others. Later that year, he expanded into the film distribution business, creating the Laemmle Film Service. Three years later, he moved to New York and got involved in producing movies, founding Independent Moving Pictures (IMP).  

Carl Laemmle was now involved in all three aspects of film: production, distribution and exhibition.  In 1912, he merged his successful IMP company with five competitors (Powers Motion Picture Company, Champion Film Company, Rex Motion Picture Company, Nestor Film Company, and New York Motion Picture Company). Together, they created the Universal Film Manufacturing Company, with Laemmle as president.

We're partnering with MooreMart, creating care packages for our troops.  Comcast Employees all around the building (we have a 500+ here in our Manchester office) are donating toothbrushes, toothpaste, lip balm, floss, s'more packs (Hershey chocolate bars, graham crackers, marshmellows) -- don't ask why we include that in the same package as all the dental gear, it's tradition! -- instant oatmeal, Ramen noodles, boxed movie candy, baby wipes, bottled water, white crew socks ... oh, and cards. Lots of thank you cards!

To my veteran followers -- what am I missing from the list?  What would you have liked to see in your care package?  We've still got 8 more shopping days left to fill our packages and get them shipped!

Not quite, allacronyms.com ... CFNR means simply "Call Forward Not Reachable".

Comcast Business has a Cloud PBX solution called VoiceEdge.  With VoiceEdge, you can use CFNR to automatically re-route incoming calls in the event your own business phone is not connected to the Comcast Cloud PBX platform. Customer's can set this feature up in advance via the VoiceEdge Feature Portal, configuring the system to re-route their calls to a mobile phone, home phone or alternate office. This is a useful disaster recovery feature which automatically activates by a power outage, LAN issues, or anything that causes the customer to lose connectivity to the Comcast Cloud PBX platform.
 
For more VoiceEdge feature information, check out business.comcast.com/getstarted.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
In 1870, Jules Verne wrote 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It has become a classic science fiction novel, and Jules Verne is recognized as a writer who was far ahead of his time. 

In 1916, the Universal Film Manufacturing Company (now Comcast/NBC Universal) became the first studio to do underwater filming, producing an adaptation of Jules Verne's works by director Stuart Paton. 

Catch a glimpse of what silent film-making was like back in the early 1900's, and imagine yourself viewing this with friends in a crowded nickelodeon.

Universal City Grand Opening (1915)
From it's earliest days when Carl Laemmle founded the Universal Film Manufacturing Co., he recognized the value of opening his film-making studios to the public.  In 1912, he opened his Oak Crest studio to the public, an informally named the property "Universal City". A tour bus route was opened from Los Angelos to the studio proper. Universal even added a free zoo to the property, to draw spectators in. The "city" contained streets, viewing stands for the public, open-air stages, and film-making sets.

This was unheard of at the time, and many other studio chiefs laughed at Carl, naming the venture "Laemmle's Folly". Carl's insights were keen, however, and the project paid off.  The first property area (what is now Forest Lawn Memorial Park) was quickly recognized to be too small.

Carl ordered the purchase of additional land in Lankershim, and moved operations to that larger property.  He then went on a whirlwind, 8-day tour from Chicago to LA to drum up interest in the "Grand Opening of Universal City, the Home of the Movies".  More than 20,000 members of the public responded to the invitation, and were welcome to the studio to watch the magic of movie-making.

More great pictures of the opening event can be found at the Water and Power Museum's web page below.   #ComcastHistory

This past weekend more than 90,000 Comcast volunteers rolled up their sleeves and gave back to the communities where we live and work.  It was our 14th annual Comcast Cares Day #CCDAY , with more than 750 projects nationwide. We've been doing this 2001 -- it's embedded in our culture to give back to our communities! Proud Comcaster!

Sr. Director, Business Architecture - Comcast
Introduction
About Me: I'm a Sr. Director of Business Architecture at Comcast Business.  I head up the team that is doing Salesforce.com Requirements and Planning.  In this role, I work with end-users, stakeholders, business leaders, product managers, project managers, business leaders, developers and architects. Together, we develop wiz-bang-wow-awesome solutions on the Salesforce CRM platform.

My team helps design solutions that allow Comcast employees to connect with customers in a meaningful way, transforming the cusotmer experience through intelligent CRM design.

I love Customers and I love showing companies how to take better care of their customers. And while you don't necessarily need systems to engage well with customers, I believe it helps. My CRM tool of choice is Salesforce.com. I've been showing companies how to do more with Salesforce for over 10 years. I'm a Salesforce MVP and cloud-computing evangelist (rock 'on, Salesforce, Google and Amazon!). I'm a fan of all things tech, but I love unplugging on the weekend.

Note: The opinions expressed on Google+ are my own and not that of my employer. But if they knew what was good for them, the opinions I express on Google+ would be theirs, too.

How can I help you?

Food was very slow to come out (almost 40 minutes!). Waitress was inattentive, and their were only 3 tables occupied in our section. I'd come to give them a 2nd chance to impress.
