Squid is brought back to life by soy sauce?
 
This dish is called Odori-Don

This is a dish called Odori-Don. It has a dead squid on top that “dances” when Soy Sauce is poured on it, activating it’s neurons.

Ps. Flash from Google Plus past on my Birthday :)

Firefox, who's browser competes against Google's Chrome will receive $300M a year to keep Google as the default search engine on its browser. Guess it's pocket-change to the big G! Helps to have leverage from Microsoft and Bing too.

+Robert Scoble shared this video a while back. I didn't have the time to watch it when he shared it, but I kept it available because I had heard about frictionless sharing and open graph, and wanted to learn more.

At first I think it's a little confusing with the jargon and simultaneously spinning up to speed to a level of knowledge that Robert and Carl both have about Timeline and Open Graph. As they are describing the functionality of it all and how it fits into social shared experiences, I get really turned off by the whole idea -- basically of apps that automatically share what you're experience at the exact moment that you are experiencing them. For me, that type of sharing is too much and too open.

But the idea of recording that information has some appeal to me as a person who likes to record things and have data. It's the engineering side of me. Plus, my fading memory makes me feel like I need some way to recall my memories even if I don't.

From there, I started to listen a little more, and remarkably Robert and Carl start answering some of my privacy concerns. For example, you can curate what is shared after the fact...or set who sees the automatic stream beforehand. Also, Facebook chooses those who see the stream anyhow. So the stream really isn't to everyone, you just don't who exactly who it is shown to. Robert also talks about Spotify creating a button to Not share after playing a song for 15 seconds or so.

I think it's an interesting idea, and can play a role in "discovering" what your friends have an interest in that you would never have known before. Sites like Spotify, Pinterest, and Foodspotting are growing rapidly because of it. But, for many this will be too invasive. Already people are turning off Facebook because they don't want to know so much about their friends, family and acquaintances (who don't know how to control their profile, account and privacy settings -- as most don't).

Because of that, I don't believe it will catch on ultimately as too many people like their privacy online. Even though frictionless sharing may make it "easier" to share, if not enough people share, the utility of it will be lacking. To me, I'd be thinking about what is being shared automatically all the time, and be too on-guard. So, I just don't see that many people willing to go to that step.

Last point that's not discussed...this will give Facebook even MORE data to form a profile of your online behavior with data to possibly sell or use in the future. That to me will turn people off the most.

So, overall, I'm intrigued by it and may use some of the apps to see how they are. But for the general audience of Facebook, I have my doubts that a critical mass of people will embrace it.

I'm trying to figure out why my iPad cannot send out my emails. Can't Gmail and Apple iOS get along?

The mobile platform for media is just coming into its own. But already companies like Medialets are playing a major role in shaping the future mobile media market.

Opt out of receiving Sample Ballot & Voter Information Pamphlet in paper form. Digital is the way of the future anyhow + every little bit helps on cutting down paper use. http://www.acgov.org/rov/sampleballotopt.htm
