+Chris Brogan I made this one for you Chris as I loved your book Trust Agents, advocate it in all my talks, and wanted to return the content sharing favor somehow. BIG respect to you for your contribution to the social web. Tx

Now we know which soft drink Thomas Power prefers. But how do you feel about his thoughts on the "war" between Google and Facebook?
Thomas Power originally shared:
 
So with Facebook's $100bn IPO coming in 2012 the battle royale commences between Google and Facebook. Who's the Pepsi, who's the Coke? And which tastes better in the long run? Which is best for us personally and which is best for us professionally?

Facebook are floating 10% of their shares that will give them $10bn in working capital assuming it is all subscribed and most believe it will be. Many believe Facebook's share price will triple within a few years as they acquire for paper twitter (facebook lite), linkedin (facebook pro), ebay (facebook marketplace), paypal (facebook bank) yahoo-bing (facebook search) to get huge scale and revenue very fast. It's massively problematic acquiring and integrating these people and systems but we do know Mark Zuckerberg is focused on being the first trillion dollar market cap company and this is achievable possibly as early as 2020.

Google know it's coming and are buying one company per week so they are pre-arming for the batte of the billions.

The rules remain the same all along "the winner of the game is the one with all the names". Dear thanks to +Mark Sinclair for directing me once again.

Story
Tagline
Building TV channels online - yBC.tv
Introduction
By day I'm focussed on yourBusinessChannel - part of a team of people bringing hundreds of high quality, no nonsense shows to business people and entrepreneurs around the world.  I get a kick out of connecting with talented and inspirational people, all of whom not only have clever ideas, but also have actually achieved great results applying their theory, ideas and techniques to their own or clients' businesses.

The commercial part of our business delivers advice/consultancy to a healthy stable of clients.  But our four core offerings are ...
  1. Creating highly engaging business tv content for business
  2. Helping our clients to build powerful channels online to keep the attention of clients, prospects and contacts
  3. A video delivery platform which can be used to boost business development results - it' a powerful 1:1 marketing tool
  4. A series of related business intelligence/insight products, to help you make the right decisions based on the right information.

At night I morph into an expert in managing the bath antics of my two children, reading their favourite books to them (we've moved on from Charlie and Lola, Where the Wild Things Are (my absolute childhood favourite) to Roald Dahl's books, spending time with my wife before heading back to work to meet the demands of a rapidly advancing business.  Weekends vary, but we enjoy fresh air, travel, the company of our friends and sometimes just doing nothing for a change.

Humour (in all areas of life) is incredibly important to me.  If you don't laugh - even in times of stress - then it's all just a bit harder than it needs to be. 

What else?  Click some of the links (top right) and find out more about various aspects of yBC - and about me.
