Fifteen uncoupled simple pendulums of monotonically increasing lengths dance together to produce visual traveling waves, standing waves, beating, and (seemingly) random motion.
The period of one complete cycle of the dance is 60 seconds. The length of the longest pendulum has been adjusted so that it executes 51 oscillations in this 60 second period. The length of each successive shorter pendulum is carefully adjusted so that it executes one additional oscillation in this period. Thus, the 15th pendulum (shortest) undergoes 65 oscillations.
Researchers have used social media chatter to predict box office revenues, Grammy winners, and even terrorist uprisings. Can we apply these predictive analyses to the upcoming election? http://socialmediasun.com/social-media-election-predictions/

In a year of development, Apple brought consumers a phone that has a little longer screen. Facebook spent the year acquiring Instagram, a second photo sharing application. Google launched Google Fiber, a high speed Internet service that is 100x faster than the current average, and robotic cars that drive themselves. Why does a search company take on projects like mapping the universe?
Why does the language have to be them versus us? Can't we all just get along?
Corporations are neither inherently good nor evil. They are the embodiment of the founders ideals minus their aptitude or ability for implementing those dreams and visions. In other words a great leader and visionary with great business skills will have a corporation that is very much in line with the vision and all the people in it and around it will follow suit and a great leader and visionary that does not have great business skills will have a mess on his hands given enough time and money. Most never have enough money... (thankfully? for them? for us?).
Google has by simple observation managed to mostly get their "Do No Evil" mantra correct (hey your ON google right now aren't you?) and have managed to implement the vision and follow the leadership of the people at the top of their food chain. Until you've hired (and fired) employees you have no idea of how hard it is to achieve even modest success in business above a scale of one.
So kudo's to them.
PS: Yes it is the duty and responsibly of every corporation to make a profit (or at a minimum not incur a loss) within the confines and context of a very very complex legal, fiscal, competitive, political and now very social world. Just as it is the duty and responsibly of a human to breath and stay alive :)

12 Most Useful Things to Know About Social Media and Defamation
Think you can spout your big mouth off on your blog or social media? Guess again.
"It’s when false statements of fact are tossed about and you knew or should have known they’re not true that we move from “it’s my blog I can say what I want” to alleged defamation."
"You may be liable for what you say and what others say... Any social media platform that allows people to comment on what you say or allows you to share what that person says raises your level of liability. While there are protections for bloggers who permit comments on their site, that won’t necessarily insulate you from liability. Furthermore, with the ease of a few clicks we use our influence to share what others are saying and if we’re not diligent we could find ourselves perpetuating false statements of fact. Social media is still so new that there aren’t any significant cases to use for demonstration, but the fact remains that laws not specifically designed to cover social media are now being applied to these new and emerging technologies."
