Speech Patterns Really Matter

We are primed to respond to how words sound (which is why we often make crass judgements based on accent). Winston Churchill (during WWII) is often referred to in conjunction to the way he used the English Language (http://goo.gl/kDQfuX), conscripting it in the fight against the Germans and, in the opposing side, Hitler also was hyper-aware of the hypnotic sound of his own voice and the way he used the German language (http://goo.gl/MnFkFu).

Now, I am not liking Donald Trump here to Hitler, nor am I liking him to Winston Churchill for that matter. I have used both these examples because they are outliers in the way they use language. And so, apparently is Trump.

Whether you like him or not, there is no taking away that he is a masterful salesman who knows how to use language. Check out the video below and also check out +David Brin's piece on this: http://goo.gl/CN55ic.

Interesting thoughts on Twitter, VR and AR from +Robert Scoble

Yesterday, we broke the news that Twitter has started an AR and VR team and pegged ex-Apple designer, Alessandro Sabatelli, as its director of VR and AR to “[empower] us all in the spatial computing revolution.” Beyond that, however, Twitter is remaining mum on where it is going with the new medium – but that doesn’t mean I can’t suggest a few things they should do. Before I tell you where Twitter should go, however, we should see where we are no...
