Godwin's Law*
A term that originated on Usenet, Godwin's Law states that as an online argument grows longer and more heated, it becomes increasingly likely that somebody will bring up Adolf Hitler or the Nazis. When such an event occurs, the person guilty of invoking Godwin's Law has effectively forfeited the argument.

FB's Forthcoming Copyright ID System

"In a recent snapshot search of 33 of today's top songs, NMPA identified 887 videos using those songs with over 619 million views, which amounts to an average of nearly 700,000 views per video," Israelite wrote in his op-ed, noting that many of the videos are fan-created cover songs -- and that none have been licensed by the publishing industry. "In reality, the scope of the problem is likely much greater because, due to privacy settings on Facebook, it's almost impossible to gauge the true scale."
Facebook is looking to develop a copyright identification system to make it easier for rightsholders to get compensated for their work on the platform -- with licensing deals with the major labels soon to follow.

Useful Spreadsheet re: Trump Cabinet Nominees

For those concerned about Trump's Cabinet nominees, here's a great spreadsheet including talking points and Congregational contacts.
The hearings for the Trump cabinent nominees begin the week of 1/9/17. By scheduling multiple confirmation hearings, a budget 'vote-o-rama', and the first Trump press conference since the election all on the same day (Wednesday 1/11/17), the Senate GOP is working to prevent any one nominee from ...

HOA APIs shut down April 25, 2017
I don't believe this will effect HOAs started as a YouTube Live Steaming "Event." but will effect so-called "wrap around" services such as Webjam and "Business Hangouts on Air".
After April 25, apps in Hangouts will stop working

I'm going to pretend not to understand it, even though there might be some historical basis for convolving Sponge Bob cartoons with WWII awfulness. If so, it is lost on me.

Introduction
The great Wayne Gretzky once said, “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”

With that in mind, I took a year to listen & learn about social media. It took about nine months to feel as if I really “got it” (and another three to figure out my "niche”).

So, here is what I learned.

  • Secrets of social media for small business
  • Give it the best you’ve got and give it away freely.
  • As in real life, it takes time to build trusting relationships.
  • Also just as in real life, sincerity, honesty and an open heart help.
  • When the customer/client/patient is ready to buy/act/choose,
  • You’ will already be there, ready to sell/provide/serve.
  • Consider it the “Universal Principle of Reciprocity.”
In other words,  ”Skate to where the puck is going to be.

Bragging rights
Managed Seattle/King County's Public Access cable channel 29/72 for most of the 1980's and 1990's. What I didn't learn about "building community" then, I'm making up for now with Google Plus and Hangouts on Air.
