Profound Statement!
Thanks to +Christine DeGraff from whom I received the share first and especially to the original poster the lovely Dr. +Mani Saint-Victor 
Hope all is well Mani :)

I always enjoy the Friday Favourites from +Mick Sharpe.  
Yet another great round-up to make sure we don't miss the important stuff.
Thanks again Mick!
Vigour mortis

As I hit another week with next to no time available for the Plus I was shocked surprised happy to find we are all dead again. Really it’s good to be a part of the Zombie Nation. Coming at this very late this week so this may be the shortest Friday Favourites in a long time. Here goes!

Old friends return in UK Biz Hangouts : Google Essentials ( with +Lee Rickler and +Nick Rink talking all things Google+ with +Ammon Johns and +martin shervington. The emphasis is on benefits to small business and an easily digestible 30 minute format. AdWords, Analytics and website optimisation. Google Apps, GMail and Drive there’s a lot packed into this show. A word for warning for our worldwide friends - this is an all Brit affair with accents aplenty!

I enjoyed this article The one thing you cannot train marketers on is creative judgment ( +Teodora Petkova putting her thoughts on this +McKinsey & Company interview originally surfaced by +Bob Strassel Jr.. No need for me to add any further introduction as Teodora and Bob have it all covered.

Experts, experts, everywhere

The #RayLunchBunch show has been a staple for me for a long time on the Plus. Who You Calling An Expert? ( Always a fun show, +Ray Hiltz, +Jessica Dewell, +B.L. Ochman, +Randy Bowden and +Scott Scowcroft share their views on experts and expertise. BL’s research into Social Media profiles is a revelation. You’re all experts to me guys, great job.

I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the calibre of guests +Thomas E. Hanna | is attracting with his Social Theory series. The Theory Of Engagement ( features +Ana Hoffman, coffee in hand, sharing her extensive knowledge of creating engaging content, developing relationships and generating traffic for your website. One thing that becomes clear from Ana’s story is the benefit of trying all sorts of things, evaluating them quickly, to arrive at your ideal fit. You know other big secret - actually taking the time engage with someone directly! Cracking stuff Ana and Thomas.

After my mishaps of the last few weeks I was particularly pleased when this post from +Gina Fiedel presented itself front and centre of my stream when I logged in. Getting To The Heart Of Collaboration The Dance We Do Together ( is a typical Gina exploration of the value of collaboration using her experience of the Performing Arts to demonstrate the points made. You really need to click through to the full article to get the most from this. Some classic lines as you have come to expect from Gina so soften your ego, share a little vulnerability and start to explore the opportunities of teaming up.

Talking of collaboration and teaming up the Serendipity Machine has brought this share from +Denis Labelle ( to my attention. New Clues from +David Weinberger and +Doc Searls is one of those pieces that everyone should read (in whatever form they find it). To quote David, it's as a response to the somber-to-depressed mood even among Net optimists. I’m not sure I subscribe to those feelings but I can appreciate the issues raised. The piece (and the clues) will resonate with almost everyone, here on the Plus and using the Internet in general.

Net neutrality runs through the above mentioned post and features strongly in this week’s +Black Lotus DDoS and Cybersecurity Power Talk ( +Mia Voss talks with +Dannee Zeedick about the latest news from the FCC and the wider issues around cybersecurity. Always good to keep on top of this.

I’ve missed a good few of +Joey Giangola’s Fearlessly Questioning recent shows but with +Amy Schmittauer fielding the questions I made a beeline for Fearlessly Questioning Being Ready ( Amy, for those who don’t know, is behind +Savvy Sexy Social producing some excellent short videos every week on YouTube that contain some solid guidance in an entertaining package. Dodge the snakes and partake of some sage advice that flows from the discussion.

Thinkers corner

Everyone in the organisation is powerful. A really interesting share from +Gideon Rosenblatt who first explored The Soulful Company. This RSA presentation by Frederic Laloux ( looks at the companies who have thrown out the old rule book and reimagined company structure and purpose. It could be a much more promising future.

And finally…

Hands up! I have not yet explored Instagram but after this PYB Show ( featuring the Queen of Instagram +Sue B. Zimmerman I think I may have to take a closer look. +martin shervington shares his experience of Instagram with a woodpecker/weasel meme and trouper +Travis Taylor keeps the tech in check (with a biteback in the last seconds!).

Have a great weekend wherever you are

Very interesting news.  I never thought I'd live to see this day so happy, happy about the news!
Thanks for keeping us informed +Thomas Frey 
The solar industry has reached a major milestone, surpassing the number of workers in the century's old coal industry. Public acceptance has taken a long time, but this is encouraging.
As its production costs have fallen far enough in some regions to compete economically with fossil fuels, companies like Apple are now buying mass

I wonder if that's because so many coal mines have closed down due to EPA regulations.

Love the presentation as well as the wise words
Trust is important but keeping your perspective and your purpose is specific to one's true growth.  
Thanks for the reminder +Brian Solis 
To come so far only to lose the very thing that got you in those you believed in.

Don't ever lose sight of your vision and purpose. Don't let people, even those you love and respect, take your eye off of what it is that moves you. If people believe in you, they will show it. They will always show it. If they don't, they won't.

It's time for us to invest in us. It's time to support one another. That's how we stand strong and how we bring change. This is our time. This is your time. This is my time.

Embed your Hangouts On Air videos on your website for more views and to encourage your followers to visit your website.

Thanks +Ronnie Bincer for sharing this important information.

How to Embed HOA Videos on Your Website
You work hard to make your Hangout on Air (HOA) broadcasts worth watching... why not use them to drive traffic to your website?

People watching videos on your website increases 'time on site' - a good factor to improve your website's ranking. And when visitors stay on your site, there is a better chance they'll look around and find more of the things you want them to find there!

Check out the detailed steps in the linked article for locating the HOA video embed code so you can easily include your HOA videos right on your site. We cover multiple ways to find the embed code no matter which method you used to create your Hangout on Air broadcast.

One Embed Code, 3 Uses
It is the same video embed code that is used to display the pre-show countdown (pictured here) as well as the live broadcast and the recorded version of the show... all depending on when the viewer clicks the play arrow.

I've even shared a little known tip that makes it easier to modify the HOA video embed code for the next video you want added to your site.

Get More Mileage from your HOA Videos
Not everyone watches your Hangouts on Air live so get some extra value from your HOAs by adding them to your website so they can 'live on' well into the future.

Here's the direct link to the article:

Learn how to find the code and embed HOA videos on your website. Hangouts on Air broadcasts automatically make videos which can be embedded on your website.
