I'm as jaded as you can get when it comes to Google's search improvements. I see cute things all the time, it is what I expect Google to do all the time, and think of them as business as usual. 

I was so impressed with the word definition card I saw today. I was looking for the definition of obstreperous.

The card is folded on top of the search results, so you see the definition and example. I clicked it open and this thing, below, of beauty showed up.

I love flow charts (you only have to see my postings on G+, FB), and hence the Origin section was so lovely.

The use over time was quite lovely, going back to 1800! When I'd searched I was wondering why I'd never bumped into it, clearly I've been out of touch.

It is a small thing, but my favorite part was the Translate section. I was confident there was no such word in Afrikaans (first language listed :), clearly I was wrong again.

Google, your innovation is modeswillig and moving the bar higher and higher each day!

(PS: This is a great example of continuous incremental #innovation . If you want to learn more about it, and the other two types of innovation, please see: http://goo.gl/6POihg)

Closing the day with this beautiful piece by Jason Yang.

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.” 
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

and I would add a heart needs to hear the violin as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its reception.

Good night.

I wrote a post detailing thoughts on the nomenclature of "SEO" (which I believe is here to stay and doesn't need to be changed, either in definition or wording), and of "inbound marketing" (which is emerging and has yet to be fully formed).

You can always count on Scott Adams to cut to the chase brilliantly. 

A big part of my personal evolution is driven by the learning that data is not the problem. It is the way Senior Leaders think that is the problem. Or more precisely it is the way they imagine the possibilities that is the problem.

Our leaders do feel that data is important, yet they don't use it. So why are so many analysts and IT folks and big data initiatives are still funded? The last pane of the comic explains that. Even if you want to ignore the data, you want it to be very very accurate. 

The comic is funny. It is painfully true.

Evidence, Theories, and Truth:  A simple thought provoking illustration....

I love this. In part because it encourages and evidence based understanding, and because it applies the Occam's Razor :), and because it ends on a humble note. 

Still my fav is that, and tell me if you infer this too, no where does it say: "faith or 'wisdom' from an old book superseeds all observable evidence"

Alphabet Taught To Kids Nowadays

I disagree with some of the letters (k, n, z) but still the concept is funny.

Though this might apply to tech parents only. :)
