Only one sad thing... actually, it was a fake +Zippo from China :-)
 
Perfect example of quick wit and newsjacking that resulted in a viral video. Bravo Zippo!

Check out the the video here: http://youtu.be/f5M5lBpHahY 

"The 40,000-mile torch relay leading up to the 2014 Sochi Winter Games got off to an inauspicious start over the weekend as Russian President Vladimir Putin participated in ceremonies at Red Square.

As a torch bearer carried the Olympic flame through a long passageway leading to the Kremlin, a burst of wind extinguished the fire for a moment.

Shavarsh Karapetyan, a 60-year-old former champion swimmer, began waving and pointing to the top of his torch. He approached a man in a black coat -- possibly a member of Putin's security team -- who whipped out a cigarette lighter and saved the day.

Dmitry Chernyshenko, president of the Sochi organizing committee, later said a valve on the torch had not been fully opened, the Associated Press reported.

The Zippo lighter company quickly pounced on the moment, posting video on the Internet with the hashtag #ZippoSavesOlympics."

What is happen with "What's hot and recommended. These posts are popular on +Google+ " pages? They entirely disappeared yesterday, and still there is no any sign of its comeback... Do you have the same issue or not?

Indeed, he can, because he's a mobster
 
#CONAN  Mono: Russian President Vladimir Putin has been named a candidate for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. His chances of winning are good because his strategy is to have the other nominees killed. More jokes @ http://teamcoco.com/jokes

Absolutely stunning mix of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and Puddles Pity Party. That image of a sad clown reminds me modern and retrofitted iteration of Russian singer Alexander Vertinsky

+Kirill Elizarov I completely agree about the Nomi/Tin Man comparison.  (Puddles is so much more human and accessible.)

Sensational Headline!

There’s a web post from the Nature website going around entitled “Simulations back up theory that Universe is a hologram”.  Scientific American had “Universe Really Is a Hologram According to New Simulations”.  I won’t link to them, because I don’t want to encourage them getting pageviews for this kind of thing.  Suffice it to say, the universe is not a hologram, certainly not in the way people think of holograms.  So what is this “holographic universe” thing.

It all has to do with string theory.  Although there currently isn’t any experimental evidence to support string theory, and some evidence pointing against it (http://goo.gl/vrYsF), it still garners a great deal of attention because of its perceived theoretical potential.  One of the theoretical challenges of string theory is that it requires all these higher dimensions, which makes it difficult to work with.

In 1993, Gerard t’Hooft proposed what is now known as the holographic principle (http://goo.gl/YZYFYa), which argued that the information contained within a region of space can be determined by the information at the surface that contains it.  Mathematically, the space can be represented as a hologram of the surface that contains it.  

That idea is not as wild as it sounds.  For example, suppose there is a road 10 miles long, and its is “contained” by a start line and a finish line.  Suppose the speed limit on this road is 60 mph, and I want to determine if a car has been speeding.  One way I could do this is to watch a car the whole length of the road, measuring its speed the whole time.  But another way is to simply measure when a car crosses the start line and finish line.  At a speed of 60 mph, a car travels a mile a minute, so if the time between start and finish is less than 10 minutes, I know the car was speeding.  

The holographic principle applies that idea to string theory.  Just as its much easier to measure the start and finish times than constantly measure the speed of the car, it is much easier to do physics on the surface hologram than it is to do physics in the whole volume.  The idea really took off when Juan Martín Maldacena derived what is known as the AdS/CFT correspondence (an arxiv version of his paper is here: http://goo.gl/xVEAEQ), which uses the holographic principle to connect the strings of particle physics string theory with the geometry of general relativity.  

While Maldacena made a compelling argument, it was a conjecture, not a formal proof.  So there has been a lot of theoretical work trying to find such a proof.  Now, two papers have come out demonstrating that the conjecture works for a particular theoretical case.  Of course the situation they examined was for a hypothetical universe, not a universe like ours.  So this new work is really a mathematical test that proves the AdS/CFT correspondence for a particular situation.

From this you get a headline implying that we live in a hologram.  On twitter, +Ethan Siegel proposed a more sensible headline: “Important idea of string theory shown not to be mathematically inconsistent in one particular way”.

Of course that would probably get less attention.

Entire truth. This is what DIN Forums should be about.
 
Branding In Social Media

I'm shocked at how few companies actually "get" social media... Do you have some examples of  a brand doing AWESOME  or HORRIBLE customer service via social media? 

Bring it. Your answers may be used in an upcoming article.

Introduction
"The ways in which information passes through a society are the key to that society's culture and are inseparable from its understanding of how to preserve itself and its internal group relationships. It is the 'silence' that control a society and keep it 'stable' much more than the conscious noise it generates. 
(Anthony Smith. The Geopolitics of Information. 1980)
We would like to give people opportunity to be heard and break through that silence. And we have arrived to understanding 'how' to do it, specifically! :-)
(Kirill Elizarov, 2012)
Bragging rights
From 2007 till 2010 I created and had led PR and media project between Russia and China, in which were engaged Chinese and Russian Presidents. By the end of 2010 I created an accompanying Art project, which has been dedicated to the loved ones of fallen Russian soldiers around the globe. In the beginning of 2011 these projects won the international “SILVER ARCHER” award in the category of “State” for the development of public relations between Russia and China. Also as a media manager and producer I had headed other successful international communications projects: from news till sports and art fields, from Finland and France till South Korea, have 3 sons.
