Okay, we're over being impressed by how Big it is. Now let's see if we can make something of value out of it. (There may not have to be as much grunting and groaning as we initially thought!) #bigdata   #apachespark   #apachehive   #hadoop  
 
It's not enough to simply have big data. Businesses need to transform that data into actionable data. http://ow.ly/OXrKD
The era of data-driven business has arrived. Big data analytics tools are enabling organizations to capture, manage and mine mountains of raw chaotic data from multiple sources to gain insights that inform products, services and marketing strategies. The challenge is that not all big data insights are relevant and meaningful enough to spark real change …

This is HIGH-larious! ArtistSignal IT staff is sophisticated enough to detect automation and cheating. The maker of this video has Zero Clue about what it looks like in server logs when someone is automating the process of voting.

On The Other Hand, TerryLynn prevailed after several months of very hard work, building audience organically, supporting other promising artists, giving back to the community as much as she gained from it. And all of this WITHOUT the blessing of the holy "Staff Pick" accolade. Take a look at the leader board right this minute (6/25 at 11:20 EDT) and notice that two of the top three artists are Staff Picks. 

People who know about SEO and the mechanisms of real crowd sourcing know that a single "official" endorsement is easily worth 1000 fans clicking away furiously to support their favorite artist.  So whine away! This lady won her accolades fair and square - working her fingers to the bone to take home the prize.

+Vincent Lowe AS IT staff doesn't have a clue what is going on on their site. I can give you the names of literally dozens of people who are using bots to vote, fake artists and fake FB accounts voting. And, mind you, I am not saying this video is telling the truth or that TerryLynn is cheating. If I so much as suspected she might be, I wouldn't be voting for her. But the person who posted this should have the guts to use their own name. And I am pretty sure there is a group behind this - a group that should be banned by AS for good.

You know that thing where someone sees what you did, and when they talk about it, they make it much more grand and amazing than what you actually intended? Well when that happens, just Shut Up and Applaud them. Then bow your head humbly and murmur, "oh it was really nothing." And smile!

I really want to believe!

I would like very much to be able to migrate some of our organization's activity on Skype and WebEx over to use Google Hangouts. In some contexts it works very well. In others, not so much.

When I use a desktop browser to set up Google calendar invitations, it's an easy matter to provision a Hangouts call.

But from my Android mobile device, the calendar doesn't provide access to the Hangout call. In particular, if I want to log in from the desktop and use the Android phone for audio, I tend to have problems finding a ready link from the mobile device for the call I want to join. (It's possible that my calendar app on the phone is Samsung rather than stock Google Calendar app, I'll check that.)

But the point is, even with the Google Hangouts app, I have a very hard time finding the gestures that will allow me to join a hangout that I've sourced from my desktop or from the calendar.

We've got to do better than this. I really want to migrate a lot of the chaotic multi-platform traffic onto Google Apps for various reasons. But if my people have to struggle with getting set up or with reliably finding the call, then we're no better off than with Skype or WebEx.

So here's the detail:

Phone - Samsung Galaxy s6
OS - Android
Calendar event created from web calendar interface - using Chrome, and Google Calendar

It's pretty much all one-platform operation here.

Created meeting, provisioned a Hangout to go with the event.

On the phone, looking at the event in the calendar app - I see event title, time, location, reminder, and description fields. No field to join the hangout.

This is the sort of place you take your out-of-town guests to visit when they are in town. It's authentic, it's open late, and the black bean soup is worth a drive across town. The Portuguese fare is complemented with typical burgers and soups for the more pedestrian tastes, but we recommend letting the kitchen show you what they've got. You'll be impressed.

We've always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The cupcakes are remarkable and we often drive many miles out of our way to have some. This is a one-of-a-kind destination.

...the agonizing part about getting a Via Mia pizza is the time between when you get it and when you can put it in your mouth. The aroma assaults you even through the thick sides of the take-home box. When it's Via Mia night at our house, I always volunteer to drive, but I'm always in trouble when I arrive with pieces missing.

...my partner and I were far from home (Northern California is a long way from Maine, after all) but we were able to get a great haircut, and a wonderful style/cut from a very competent stylist. Nikki was friendly, professional, and very good with both of us. I had the feeling that we'd get the same great service from any of the hairdressers in Cliff's excellent salon. (Don't look too hard for Cliff, he's not there anymore though.) The price was very reasonable, and the service was great. I recommend it. ---v
