The Fight for Your Thoughts & Attention

Whether you are aware of it or not. Whether you care about this or not. Many of your thoughts, much of your time, much of your values, some of your self identity and a VAST amount of your attention, have been co-opted and manipulated by a handful of psychologists and other behavioural marketers.

With nearly 5 billion people on the planet owning cell phones, over 70% of the people in the world are now having their thoughts and attention redirected and exploited by a handful of behavioural marketers and a few large corporations, for marketing and other commercial interests.

Although this ability to access, control and persuade the thoughts and attention of billions of people is mostly being exploited for commercial or political gain right now, it can also be used to improve, even save, the lives of millions, possibly billions, of people.

There is HUGE potential for all the acquired knowledge of our online behaviors and personality profiles to be used for the betterment of civilization as a whole. Think about the positive impact we could have on the well-being and welfare of millions of people if we could use all this psychographic data to recognize the early signs of depression - even suicidal thoughts. Followed by dozens, hundreds or thousands of compassionate responses from caring people from around the world. Along with responses from mental health professionals and other supportive services and agencies within the person's own community. Lives could be improved. Lives could be SAVED.

So how can we change this? How can YOU change this and regain control of your own thoughts, your own attention?

1: Acknowledge that YOU ARE PERSUADABLE
2: Acknowledge that YOUR ATTENTION AFFECTS YOUR WELL-BEING
3: TAKE BACK CONTROL of devices that have TAKEN CONTROL of YOU.

One of the simplest changes you can make in taking control back over your attentions, thoughts and well-being, is to DISABLE or MANAGE ALERTS/NOTIFICATIONS on your cell phone and respond ON YOUR TIME There are apps you can install on your iPhone and Android phone to give you better control over when and from whom, you will be notified of an important text or call.

Our technologically connected world has been co-opted and exploited by a handful of companies and a handful of attention/thought-manipulating psychological marketers controlling the thoughts and attention of 3/4's of the Earth's population. It's time to TAKE BACK CONTROL of YOUR OWN THOUGHTS and ATTENTION.

"A handful of people working at a handful of tech companies steer the thoughts of billions of people every day, says design thinker Tristan Harris. From Facebook notifications to Snapstreaks to YouTube autoplays, they're all competing for one thing: your attention. Harris shares how these companies prey on our psychology for their own profit and calls for a design renaissance in which our tech instead encourages us to live out the timeline we want."

Is Desktop Advertising on Its Way Out? Mobile Advertising is Projected to Still be Growing in 2017
To enlarge image: http://goo.gl/ozHMVW

With the slow diminish of desktop and expenses, mobile ad spending is on the rise, creating a new era of online advertising.

The below infographic created by our friends at +Vertical Measures  takes a closer look at the future of mobile advertising.

Some key stats are:

Google is the number 1 digital ad publisher in the world with 33 percent of all digital ad dollars in 2013.

Mobile advertising is projected to still be growing in 2017. From 2012 to 2017, mobile ad spending is expected to be increased 716 percent.
Search and display are the top formats in U.S. mobile ad spending and are projected to keep growing.

The U.S. net mobile ad revenues for corporations is on the rise. By 2015, Google is expected to increase their revenue to $9.29 Billion, followed by Facebook to $1.86 Billion, Pandora to $0.75 Billion, and Twitter to $0.63 Billion.

Holographic Projectors for Smartphones may not be as far away as you think : Ostendo Technologies has been working on the concept for the past nine years. And while others have created holographic images, the company has created a chipset which is small enough to fit into a cellphone, which is called the 'Quantum Photonic Imager.'

Article Extract: The Ostendo Quantum Photonic Imager combines an image processor with a wafer containing radically miniaturized light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The system can control the color, brightness and angle of more than a million individual beams of light. During a demonstration, six Ostendo units laid together beamed a 3-D image of green dice “spinning in the air,” according to the Journal report: “The image and motion appeared consistent, irrespective of the position of the viewer.”

One of the biggest challenges facing wearable displays, like the one on Glass, though, has been that the internal components are too large to be hidden. Ostendo says it has spent the past eight and a half years quietly developing the QPI image engine to be both compact and high in resolution. The 5-by-5-millimeter chip contains an image processor, micro LEDs and image-rendering software. To produce an image, the processor controls the precise distance and angle of each of those LEDs. The images are higher in resolution than those produced by most current phone screens. A QPI image has 3,000 dots per inch; a Samsung Galaxy S IV has 441.

El-Ghoroury, CEO says that the company is already in talks with a few smartphone manufacturers. The chips should cost about $30. First to market sometime next year will be a 2D–capable projector chip, with its flashier hologram-producing cousin following shortly thereafter.

High-Speed Camera at Florida Tech Captures Amazing Lightning Flashes

Scientists at Florida Institute of Technology used a high-speed camera to capture amazing lighting flashes from a May thunderstorm about six miles from the university’s Melbourne campus.

The flashes were recorded at 7,000 frames per second, and the video was captured using a high-speed camera purchased with a $456,000 grant from the National Science Foundation obtained by Dr. Ningyu Liu, an associate professor in Florida Tech’s Geospace Physics Lab and the principal investigator for the project, and Dr. Hamid Rassoul, dean of Florida Tech’s College of Science and the project’s co-principal investigator. The work also involves graduate students Levi Boggs, Julia Tilles, and Alan Bozarth.
