Shared publicly  - Introduce Actions

"...the Web is not just about static descriptions of entities. It is about taking action on these entities --- from making a reservation to watching a movie to commenting on a post."

Today, we are excited to start the next chapter of and structured data on the Web by introducing vocabulary that enables websites to describe the actions they enable and how these actions can be invoked.

Interesting to see the future potential for search engines to return results by what a visitor is able to do on a site when they arrive there.

When we launched almost 3 years ago, our main focus was on providing vocabularies for describing entities --- people, places, movies, restaurants, ... But the Web is not just about static descriptions of entities. ...

I noticed that Google has accepted, and will be using, which is explained in some remarkably clear and concise videos by Manu Sporny . Also, I believe Schema were taking this on board.

A very interesting read ... #JoiningTheDots
Vision (Connecting The Dots)
disseminating seeds: The Series - INSTL 019

When I think of Benjamin Franklin, I immediately recall the impression of his likeness on the currency of the land. But lessons of vision and perseverance while bridled by challenge, certainly go far beyond that.

Examining Benjamin Franklin, one can be impressed that he was driven, self-educated, and endlessly inventive — some might even consider him to be the classical entrepreneur. To me, Franklin was less about being an entrepreneur, and more about networking with others. He was in fact, the quintessential social media manager of his time.

All about connecting the dots.
He [Franklin] believed that if he brought people together in a relaxed atmosphere and let the conversation flow, opportunities would emerge. He set in motion a trend that the French writer Alexis de Tocqueville noted in Democracy in America, his 1835 classic assessment of the young United States,

“That nothing was as distinctive [about America] as its people’s proclivity to form associations around interests, causes, and values.”

This same vision and inspiration
to connect the dots, is something I witness each day in the likes of +David Amerland and +martin shervington  , as well as in efforts underway by +CircleCount and +NOD3x.

Men and women of such vision are a wonder to behold.  When asked by a student during a recent +Glass in the Class episode to expound on the evolution of working in groups within Google+, Martin suddenly was transformed to an almost blissful state of contemplation while gazing out from his balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean ( Like a child pondering a wrapped gift on Christmas day, his eyes light up. With the wisdom of ages before, he ponders a connectivity of people — three, five, and even ten years into the future. That future, as he discusses, is built upon #relationships . On Connecting the Dots.

Likewise, the men and women behind Circle Count and NOD3X present analytic tools. Some may see them as mere metrics measurements. Yet the vision behind these enterprises is built upon looking at the past, in order to build upon  —  Connecting the Dots.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.”  This presence and state of mind probably could not forecast what the world has become today. But does it really matter that he could not see the technological advancements of the current day?

No. It is simply the mind and vision to advance forward — and CONNECT THE DOTS.

Question: How are you making use of YOUR ABILITY to have vision and CONNECT THE DOTS?

We've used Ganderton's for both our vehicles since moving to the area. And they provide a very reliable service. They even fix an issue with a sensor from an airbag and the engine 'warning light that we had been told 'couldn't be fixed' I can highly recommend them.

What can I say, Rick from Garret Guitars is the definition of customer service. I ordered my 22 year old PRS from him and he went out of his way to to get it to me in 2 days - so that I had it for my Gig. The guitar is excellent - and everything he said it would be - and so much more. It's always challenging when buying a guitar without even seeing it or playing it - but Rick really makes you feel secure in your purchase. I can't recommend him or Garret Guitars enough
