Good stuff here. 

The Deep Mind project sounds very interesting. 
 
Will the New Google+ Focus Bring Success?
My latest for Marketing Land

In my latest +Marketing Land column I cover the history of Google+ and look at its three ghosts (couldn't resist): The Ghost of Google+ Past (the Gundotra Vision), The Ghost of Google+ Present (the year following Gundotra's departure), and The Ghost of Google+ Future (the recently announced changes under new head +Bradley Horowitz).

I give my take on why the recent changes have happened, add some speculation about what they might do with the new focus, and as always, give my opinion on what this means for marketers.

Thanks, google, for stylizing the picture for me. I think it actually looks better in color but still a good gesture.

Well deserved. 
Great picture. Gene is almost smiling. 
 
Elly, Skyler and Gene Freville received an award to recognize their many years of significant support of the Hammondsport Rotary Club.  The Freville family have managed the club's hotdog sales, doing everything from the buying, storing, organizing, condiment preparation, selling, and cooking of the hotdogs. You name it -they were doing it!  The bulk of the fundraising money received by Hammondsport Rotary has come from these hotdog sales.  These proceeds are used to fund many community projects including literacy programs at local schools and libraries as well as Camp Star (a week long camp for children ages 7 to 13, with a physical or developmental disability).  The family received their awards at the annual Hammondsport Rotary Change Over Dinner on June 24 held at the Hammondsport Boating Museum.  Thank you Elly, Gene and Skyler Freville!

More information here even though the High Point paper hasn't figured out how to show the correct image with the story.

As a parent of a kid currently at the camp this is an excruciating period. We have no clue what our daughter knows or is feeling. Getting her home is all I can thing about.

Nothing compares to the agony of the Burney family.  I wish there was something that could change what happened.

There are so many things wrong with this. I wish this was from The Onion. 
NASA warns Congress must provide more funding or reliance on Russia will increase.

It was an awesome night.
 
There was a great turn out for the first Hammondsport Music in the Park concert.  The Hammondsport Rotary sold lots of hotdogs and the music was great!  Join us next week in the square for the Jorge Cuevas & The Caribe Jazz Allstars band.  We were thrilled to see Wade Saunders and family.

Might be a part of neenah discussions.
 
Facebook Adds Authorship

Google may have given up on Authorship Markup, but Facebook it appears thinks they can do a better job of it. (They're probably/maybe right.)

Now, content creators can use Markup to enable easy Facebook Following, and Discovery of other personal content linked to your profile.

For those who don't remember, or may have forgotten, Google+ attempted this same experiment early on, trying to tie Authorship to Google+ Profiles in Search. They never solved the riddle effectively and eventually gave up.

Facebook's version isn't tied to a Search Engine (yet), but with their greater user base they have a better shot of making this work, at least as a social feature.

I believe this also ups the stakes in the 'Will Google Acquire Twitter' Speculation Game. While Google+ may have failed to reach the kind of ubiquity necessary for this feature to work, Twitter is extremely popular with content creators and could provide a more suitable base.

Whether this feature succeeds where Google failed will only be known as we see adoption rates, but for now an early adopter strategy is most likely to bring benefits even if the feature is eventually folded.

Facebook has also added support for Publisher Markup, bringing them to parity with Google, which has supported this for some time (even discontinuing Authorship). Here the two may be closer to parity in their respective datasets.
Facebook's latest feature is designed to give content consumers an easy way to follow and see more great content from the writers they like. This will be huge for bloggers!
