Can Android out innovate Apple? What's the next great User Interface to computers after all this I-Sign Language? Natural Language, maybe?

Interesting detail about the DTI Promotions Permit issue, can be found in the DTI FAQ.


"Are there exemptions from permit requirements?
Permits for the following sales promotion activities need not be applied for:
1. Competitions, except beauty contest conducted nationwide, which do not require the purchase, lease or payment of any consumer product or service or availment of consumer credit;"

How Google+ turns the follower wars upside down

Twitter is like high school. The equivalent of being the popular captain of the football team or head cheerleader is to have a massive number of followers, but to be following very few. Some of the mega-celebrities, for example, have more than a million followers, but themselves are following like 12 people.

Google+, however, which was built by math and computer nerds, turns that scenario upside down. If you think about it: Your potential reach on G+ is affected more by who you follow than by who's following you. Let me explain.

The Extended circles button sends your post to all the people in your circles, plus all the people in their circles who have public follower counts on their profiles.

So if a mega-celebrity has been circled on Google+ by a million people, but themselves has circled only 12, then their posts to Extended circles will go to a million people, plus the 12, plus the people in the circles of those 12.

But the theoretical maximum number of people who can be reached by the Extended circles button is 25 million. That's achievable if you follow 5,000 who each are following 5,000 people, assuming everyone is public with their follower lists.

I can theoretically reach 25 million people, even if nobody is following me <sniff!>. If nobody is following me on Twitter, my tweets will reach zero people.

So the show-off celebrities who want to demonstrate effortless aloofness by following few, but attracting many, can still do that on Google+. But they'll have a much smaller reach than the person who follows a lot of people who also follow a lot of people.

In the Google+ universe, created by nerds rather than jocks, being popular only gets you so far.

Being smart, on the other hand, by following a lot of people who themselves are following a lot of people, gives you more reach and influence than the most popular users.

Interesting.

It's neither of them of course, not one or the other, but Google Plus to me, so far, is more Facebook than Twitter. YOU?

If you think about it almost all ANTI-MOSQUITO measures are repulsive in nature: chemical repellants, gas fumigation, katol smoke repellant, mosquito nets, citronella candles, door and window screens, etc. all in an effort to drive away or keep away the deadly lil vampires. So I've always been a fan of attractive anti mosquito measures like TRAPS. Years ago the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta developed a mosquito trap based on the fact that mosquitos are attracted to carbon dioxide in our breath and skin respiration (that's how they find us!). But it was expensive. Now the Dept of Science and Technology has come up with its own clever trap design for public schools. Kudos! Let's hope it works.
