Good video about the digital era and privacy.

In this video +Jeff Jarvis ruminates on the benefits of sharing & public-ness, and on the fears that makes people hold back because of the need for privacy.

Two months ago, I wouldn't have been too interested. But it's a fascinating subject if you think about it. In fact, I can't wait for his book on the topic, Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves the Way We Work and Live to come out in September.

Prior to the Internet, how many people would have had the opportunity to easily talk to people all over the world? To find an audience at any hour, on any topic? Let alone, relatively inexpensively communicate with a mass audience?

I think implicitly we know the value of sharing and public-ness. That's why we go online and talk with strangers. That's why we share stuff on G+, Facebook and Twitter. But have you really given much thought to the benefits it provides you?

I left MySpace in early 2009. I've hardly been online since then. I posted a few things to Twitter or Facebook, but I was busy sitting on the beach, following my baseball team around the country (Go Giants!), snowboarding, reading, and watching all the TV shows & movies I'd missed in the 7 years I was working like a maniac on MySpace.

Most of my last two years I was with a small group of friends I've known all my life. Then recently I started to "share" in a very public way -- I signed up for Google+ and posted a thought or two about what was going on. Those thoughts got picked up by bloggers and tech news sites. Once my audience got bigger, I decided to start writing about other things -- things that were more important to me than "technology." Suddenly everybody and their mother was reaching out to me. I've been invited to do and participate in so many things in the last month, I could never keep up with it all.

You may think that this would only happen to me. "You're the MySpace guy!" But that's not true. That just accelerated it. Look at +Christina Trapolino who has 10,000 people following her. Just ask her what kind of benefits she's received by being public & sharing her thoughts.

Yesterday I visited my neighbor. He's a tech leader, someone very well known. He's started three or four huge company's and is a unique, interesting person. He and I had met before through work. But as neighbors, and as friends, we'd barely talked. Why? Well, mostly because we were being private. When we met through work years ago, we focused on work. You know what drew us together yesterday? Being public & sharing. It was my attitude that had changed. I'd started to reach out to the world in a way I hadn't before. Even though he lives right down the street, and we've been neighbors for years, we'd never hung out socially. By being public about what interested me, the two of us found out we actually have things in common.

Today another person I've talked to briefly through G+ is coming down to LA and I offered him a place to stay. It's like AirBNB except I'm not charging. :-) Now notice I haven't mentioned who these two fellows are. Maybe they don't want to be named. I haven't asked them. I'm respecting their privacy. Some things can be kept private, but when you're public about other things, wonderful things happen.

Making new friends isn't the only thing that being public & sharing can lead to. I think it can really help lead you to your life's work -- and I'm not talking about a job. I'm talking about what it is that you think you were meant to do with your limited time on this planet. Sharing your ideas tends to build a community around those ideas. And through community and interaction, you'll learn many ways of being and thinking. You won't just find opportunities opening up to engage in things that matter to you ; you'll simply learn about things you never new existed. Can you believe I'd never even heard of +Jeff Jarvis before G+? I'm embarrassed to admit it, but it's true. How deep was my head in the sand?

History has shown that the initial reaction to every new technology is fear. As Jeff mentions in the video, writers were initially fearful of putting their thoughts down on paper. I've read that people were scared of the telephone when it was first introduced. When MySpace was new, parents were terrified. Now most people realize the benefits of sites like Facebook, G+ and Twitter, it's generally accepted that the benefits of being online far outweigh the negatives. That said, in the press and in general, we still tend to focus on the negatives of being public, and the supreme value of privacy.

So here's to the positives of "living publicly" online. Try being a little more open about what you're doing, what you find interesting, and what you hope for the world. You never know where it may lead. My guess is, the more open you are, the more the world opens up for you.

The Facebook girl!!! :)

(6) I don't know much about fashion, but I'm dubious about this dress. Shouldn't a social-media dress be transparent?

A Google+ dress, on the other hand, might work. Would you wear either?

More on Google's aquisition.
Larry Page originally shared:
 
Supercharging Android: Google to Acquire Motorola Mobility

Since its launch in November 2007, Android has not only dramatically increased consumer choice but also improved the entire mobile experience for users. Today, more than 150 million Android devices have been activated worldwide--with over 550,000 devices now lit up every day--through a network of about 39 manufacturers and 231 carriers in 123 countries. Given Android’s phenomenal success, we are always looking for new ways to supercharge the Android ecosystem. That is why I am so excited today to announce that we have agreed to acquire Motorola (http://investor.google.com/releases/2011/0815.html).

Motorola has a history of over 80 years of innovation in communications technology and products, and in the development of intellectual property, which have helped drive the remarkable revolution in mobile computing we are all enjoying today. Its many industry milestones include the introduction of the world’s first portable cell phone nearly 30 years ago, and the StarTAC--the smallest and lightest phone on earth at time of launch. In 2007, Motorola was a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance (http://www.openhandsetalliance.com) that worked to make Android the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices. I have loved my Motorola phones from the StarTAC era up to the current DROIDs.

In 2008, Motorola bet big on Android as the sole operating system across all of its smartphone devices. It was a smart bet and we’re thrilled at the success they’ve achieved so far. We believe that their mobile business is on an upward trajectory and poised for explosive growth.

Motorola is also a market leader in the home devices and video solutions business. With the transition to Internet Protocol, we are excited to work together with Motorola and the industry to support our partners and cooperate with them to accelerate innovation in this space.

Motorola’s total commitment to Android in mobile devices is one of many reasons that there is a natural fit between our two companies. Together, we will create amazing user experiences that supercharge the entire Android ecosystem for the benefit of consumers, partners and developers everywhere.

This acquisition will not change our commitment to run Android as an open platform. Motorola will remain a licensee of Android and Android will remain open. We will run Motorola as a separate business. Many hardware partners have contributed to Android’s success and we look forward to continuing to work with all of them to deliver outstanding user experiences.

We recently explained (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/when-patents-attack-android.html) how companies including Microsoft and Apple are banding together in anti-competitive patent attacks on Android. The U.S. Department of Justice had to intervene in the results of one recent patent auction to “protect competition and innovation in the open source software community” (http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2011/April/11-at-491.html) and it is currently looking into (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111903635604576476430510833852.html) the results of the Nortel auction. Our acquisition of Motorola will increase competition by strengthening Google’s patent portfolio, which will enable us to better protect Android from anti-competitive threats from Microsoft, Apple and other companies.

The combination of Google and Motorola will not only supercharge Android, but will also enhance competition and offer consumers accelerating innovation, greater choice, and wonderful user experiences. I am confident that these great experiences will create huge value for shareholders.

I look forward to welcoming Motorolans to our family of Googlers.

-Larry Page
