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
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 | BlogPhoto.tv
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 cornerEveryone in the organisation is powerful
. A really interesting share from +Gideon Rosenblatt
who first explored The Soulful Company
. This RSA presentation by Frederic Laloux (http://goo.gl/aUutLJ
) 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#WeeklyRoundUp #WeekInReview #Google+#BitingedgeFridayFavourites #MicksPicks
