Wise advice on LinkedIn

My friend the esteemed +Greg Cooper is an expert on LinkedIn. Here's his latest article on getting the best from that platform. It contains links to other helpful articles that he has written.

I always find some useful nuggets of information in Greg's writings of things I did not know.

Recommended.
 
LinkedIn can open up crucial early opportunities for start ups

It is a harsh fact that 90% of start ups fail. There are of course many different reasons for this from poor market research to running out of cash, but one thing is for sure without sufficient customers all businesses will fail. For B2B start ups LinkedIn offers a vehicle to accelerate that initial push for customers.
Recently I was asked by Business West (Bristol Chamber of Commerce) to contribute some advice on how start-ups can use LinkedIn to grow their businesses. The team at the Chamber put together a list of

I haven't been using it, but have been recommended to, since it sometimes wins a large audience.

Great project on dementia

Our friends at +Nesta UK have an excellent new project aimed at helping dementia sufferers. The Apps allow the building up of life events in the past with meaning for the sufferer using music and images to create their own life memories.

Ping +Brad Esau - this should be useful to your own researches?
Today we’re launching Dementia Citizens, a platform that connects researchers and those affected by dementia to help find ways to improve care.

Shaking my head in sorrow

I was disturbed to learn that tin pot bureacrats may get to wrestle control back from the GDS. They have learned nothing from the positive benefits of Open Data. This must ve resisted. Their previous efforts to do this have been expensive and abject failures. Sigh.

Human/Computer collaboration

Great share via +Paulo Silveira discussing how simulations have been harnessed to improve the search for the wreckage of the tragic flight MH370.

Ultimately, for the future, the better answer has to be better real time reporting of the monitoring results from the airliners plus a completely new generation of the black boxes such as the Cockpit voice recorder and flight recorder. But the international bureacracies make implementation of such changes very slow. Alas.

From the original Inmarsat analysis of engine data pings, right up to the present day, a lot of machine intelligence and/or simulation speed has gone into this search. And the search area has been narrowed as a result.

Note also that the various datasets that have been analysed are from very different systems / types of data. This helps the confidence levels a little.

Some joined-up thinking

There's some nice lateral thinking here by the wacky Swiss: let's solve the real problem (in bite-sized chunks) rather than the more usual big bang solution. Bravo.
A few quick fixes is all these buses to make their appointed rounds

I used the Geneva buses a lot when I lived there. This one is an example of what I term a bus and a half, meaning it has a trailer attached with a turntable arrangement. They even have a bus and a half and a third featuring two turntables. I asked my friend JB about them and he took me on a route that runs them through the old town which features incredibly tight turns in narrow streets. With some major steering wheel twirling they get through. Amazing.

You can't do Security with a shake & bake approach

As the security professionals always tell us, you have to design it in from the start. Here's an example which happens to highlight BMW. However the same critique can be made for many other manufacturer's efforts. The vehicle industry can, and must, do a lot better on this.

Security researcher Benjamin Kunz Mejri has found two vulnerabilities in the BMW ConnectedDrive web portal/ web application.

Handbags at dawn

This one is the opening salvo in a fight between 20th and 21st Century thinking. It will run and run. Europe will hurt itself against the forces building up from the machine intelligence guys... given how far they embedded into the way things work already...
Deep learning, the latest in AI technology, could clash with new regulations from the European Union, the world's single largest online market.

"this kind of machine learning, in the right hands, and with the outputs as part of intellectual commons, would play a good part in the future of work, with humans and machines working in harmony rather than in competition." That's one angle I'm pursuing in education.

Trust  - 
 
Wise words

Here's +Phil Aston making some excellent points about community-building, trust and much more on the relationship between Social Media and SEO. It's not about the marketing broadcast trumpet any more.
 
Why the Social Media Newsfeed is just as Important as being on the first page of Google
This is now where everyone is hanging out (and on Mobile). If one of your potential customers has 500 friends who each have 500 friends, then you have access to 250,000 leads who will take more notice if a post is recommended by someone they know and trust.
The news feed is where people go to for latest news in their community, their interests and their friends.
Social Media shows you what you want before you think to ask (i.e. use Google Search).

Thank goodness that the emergency services were so skilled. I'm glad that your mother is on the mend +Chris Ogle  .
This is one of those rare and rather surreal situations where you find yourself wrapped up in a story that unfolds during the day (Thursday 28th July) and then you find it in the local newspaper later on pointed out to you by...

Network power!

This is a great story about taking control of one's destiny from a networking perspective, namely some rural communities badly served by the usual telco's in Spain. So they stopped complaining (it wasn't working anyway) and built their own Internet access systems.

h/t to +Martin Silcock for putting my snout on this, and to Mark Selby for the original link
Spanish engineer Ramon Roca got tired of waiting for telecom companies to wire his town — so he did it himself.

What a great story. I think we'll begin to see more of this in all areas of society as the people take back control of what they need in their worlds

Interesting catch

By +Gregory Esau on types of Communities that can help organisations to change for the better.

The only nit-pick I'd make is the short termism as I believe such communities can be long term initiatives. Mileage may vary
 
Communities pf Aspirations
Communities of Practice

The two are inter-related, or could be.
Together or separately, such communities can be powerful engines of growth, at the personal level, and the communal level.

I personally find this both interesting and instructive, as this is a stage three strategy for growing the cross-business, cross-industry, cross pollinated with local governments ecosystem that can "design, develop, and deliver" the future of urban auto mobility.

Yes, yes, exactly so, +Peter Feltham !

While I find these sorts of articles useful for gauging how the 'thought leaders' of management are thinking, it's also interesting how much they miss in terms of what is happening just beyond the borders of those thought leader circles.

Indeed we do, and it's never been a better time to be doing what we do!

Story
Tagline
Software Architect, Researcher, SocialMedia person. Ethics matter to me.
Introduction
Officially I'm retired, or was, until that Rob Pye called me back to help with Ethos 4 years ago. Especially when I found out about their TeamArmy initiative which raises money to support (and mentor) ex-Services folk, including the Wounded Warriors. Better yet, as an ex-racer and driving enthusiast, I discovered that Ethos had supported the much esteemed team at MissionMotorsports led by Major Jim Cameron.

Other interests include travel, different cultures (I've lived abroad for most of my life all over Europe and North America), fine foods and wines, and music, especially live music of many types.

I also help to organise meetings at the House of Commons with GlobalNet 21. Use it or lose it!
