Canoeing Down The Ribble

This is what I got up to last Sunday. Part of it was very hard work as it was shallow in places. Great day out though thanks to the Liverpool Canoe Club.

Engage More On Google+
 
Study: How to Maximize Your Google+ Engagement

In our latest +Stone Temple Consulting big data study, I looked at over 32,000 Google+ posts to find the post factors that most and least affect engagement (+1's, replies, and reshares).

Some of the results may surprise you!

The post includes a sharable "Here's Why" video that summarizes the study findings. We also compare the factors we found for Google+ to those we discovered for Twitter in an earlier study.

If you benefit from this study, the best way to say "thanks" is to share it with others! For that, we thank you!

Problem Or Solution - Automation?

In my opinion the problem is not automation and the unemployment it creates because the unemployment does not need to exist. It should be used to release people from the drudgery of work and to enhance lives.

The problem comes with who owns the robots and software bots and for what purpose they are used. At present their main purpose for their owners is to reduce costs and improve production by getting rid of 'expensive' humans. Working people, us, are just seen as another component in the production process that can be dispensed with.

Take a look at Looking Backward 2000-1887 by Edward Bellamy for an alternative perspective on the future written in 1887. I think the Kindle edition is free at the moment.

Amazon another company avoiding paying taxes and abusing it's workforce.

New Social Network - What Do You Think?

A message from +Jimmy Wales

Founder of Wikipedia and Executive Chairman of TPO

There's something really wrong with the web, and I want your help in fixing it. At the end of this letter, there are three easy things I'm going to ask you to do. By the time you finish reading this, you'll understand why.

Think about 3 facts:

1. Existing social networks treat you as a commodity to be sold to advertisers. This leads naturally to intrusive use of your data and an inherent conflict between what you want and what advertisers need.
2. Mobile phone companies spend huge amounts of money on advertising to sell you what is essentially a commodity service.
3. Yet, we live in an era where word of mouth is more powerful than ever before. All that money spent on advertising is a waste.

So here’s the concept:

We spend your money on causes that you care about, rather than advertising.

And you help us spread the word. To help you do that, I've designed a whole new social network - similar to Twitter but better - and I'm hoping it will be massive.

Here’s what I want you to do

1. Share this letter with your widest networks - email, Facebook, Twitter, your blog. Call your family if that helps? Make sure everyone knows what we are doing.
2. Sign up to the social networking platform. Pledge to yourself to move a big part of your digital life here. Make it a real living and breathing community force for good.
3. Use the tools we provide to invite your friends to join. Remember, the more people in a network, the more powerful it becomes.
 
The wait is over!

We've created a community for people who want to build a positive change.

What Is Sam Restoring?

This is my friend Samuel who runs Motos Daysa in Onil, Alicante, Spain. He's always got some restoration project on the go. Anyone know which bike this engine belongs to?

One Years Miles

Or should it be One Years Smiles?

My bike, the Honda ST1300, just passed its compulsory road worthiness test (MoT) with no problem. While looking at the test certificate I noticed that the mileage for it is 89,546 miles (144,110 kms). Comparing it to last years mileage I've discovered that I've ridden 10,271 miles (16,529 kms).

Nearly all of that mileage has been on two trips down to Alicante, Spain and it has been fantastic. It was made even better by meeting up with #WoMoCo members and other motorcyclists on route.

What mileage have you done in the last year?

Stopped off for lunch and the food was delicious and great value. The owner rides a Goldwing and we had a great talk about our bike tours. There is a circular room on one side of the hotel that has a large BBQ in the centre of it. On the photos it shows up as a large round chimney. The roads and views around here are fantastic alongside the River Aragon and in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Well worth a visit and a chat.
