This has always been intuitively clear. Now, there is mounting empirical evidence proving it.

Cool
 
Infographic: Will A User See My Google+ Post (new version)

Yesterday I saw this great infographic from +Jack Stepanyan. 
(http://goo.gl/BCWk1). Because its outdated (incoming stream) I created a new one which even includes the possibility to post to communities.

I hope you like it. Feel free to share it and have a nice day!

Steve Morgan, Editor-In-Chief Cybersecurity expert John McAfee and a team of four other hackers, using their own servers located in a remote section in the mountains of Colorado, were able to read an encrypted WhatsApp message. McAfee broke the hack news to Cybersecurity Ventures by phone, and followed with an email to us providing details... Read more »

Help!

This is a genuine request for help. I've put this off for a while, but here goes. I've poked about this in the past, but I'd like to try again. Please, serious responses only. This is too important.

I'm a software engineer. I have a vision.

I'm not a web developer. I am not in marketing. I'm no longer a salesperson.

Our brand presence is all but dead.

Our name is slowly disappearing due to brand ambiguity and forced disassociation. We have no consistent branding across our sites.

Heck, we don't even have a proper logo.

These are things that honestly, I'm no good at. I'm humbly asking that the community help us to establish a visually consistent brand that will leave a lasting impression, and reflect the raw ethos, power and mindset that is Solus.

I also ask that if anyone does offer anything forward (And seriously, love you if you do !!) - that this time it's of a license that we can actually use it to support and promote the project.

If you've been looking for a way to contribute to Solus, this is right now the single most important item for 1.2 that I personally cannot do myself. I don't have the skills. I'll make sure we deliver 1.2 on time, and it'll be awesome, but without the consistent brand experience, we're undermining all the hard work we've all put in.

I thank you in advance.

An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: ''UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?''
'UBUNTU' in the Xhosa culture means: 'I am because we are'.

How many of you knew this?

Introduction
Summary

Having grown up in apartheid south africa on a smallholding on the outskirts of johannesburg I was witness to one of the most powerful changes of our time. My father was an entrepreneur and incredibly self sufficient, it was this that inspired me to follow my own dreams. I now run my own business, enabling others to use technology in a social context.

Having spent approximately 20 years in the IT business, I decided to change focus and move into a field that still uses technology but with a more human context. Social media is the most amazing way to engage with people and to leverage this in business is key to helping your customers.

One of the fundamental questions I ask myself regularly is, ‘why’? Why do we do what we do, why are we in business, why do we like to buy, etc. I apply this thinking when working with clients to develop a technology strategy.
