When one door closes, another opens.

There are only two episodes left of The Hobson & Holtz Report. But a new every-Monday show is in the works to fill the void.

Close one door and another opens. With the final episode of The Hobson & Holtz Report scheduled for September 7, a new show -- For Immediate Release -- is taking shape. With a stable of participants including an A-list of thought leaders along with hosts from other FIR Podcast Network shows, For Immediate Release will quickly become your Monday must-listen.Continue Reading →

If you like quantifying your Facebook presence, you may need to set aside time to pull your social signals through Wolfram Alpha before Facebook throttles its API usage. I've attached my most common words to this post and it shows how one of my Flickr accounts publishes images automatically. I generated my result via http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=facebook+report

Public Flickr photos from one of my accounts upload automatically. I've changed my handset settings to throttle that.

I watched two people on my Twitter timeline react somberly when they realised what losing the flight following screen trace of #4u9525  meant for their family. Then I read 50 pages of Professional Pilot Rumor Network threads as cockpit voice recordings started to suggest a deeply unfortunate twist in the tragedy. There are many lessons for communicators to learn from the loss of the Germanwings flight. But I wonder how many in the FIR Podcast Community would consider monitoring the establishment of bogus social media accounts bearing the names of the aircrew members. Within a day of the mishap, two Facebook pages popped up purporting to be written by the copilot. Lufthansa did not seem ready to counter that eventuality. Lesson learned at this end.

I spotted a very sweet method from +Ryan Barrett aka @snarfed on GitHub at  http://github.com/snarfed/huffduff-video -- it extracts audio from YouTube or Vimeo for Huffduffer.

I imagine +Dan York has a bird's eye view of how domains for .app, .cloud, .search and .dev are evolving.

Missed this one, Bernie... to be honest, I haven't been paying as much attention to the "closed domains" issue.  Quite honestly, I think there are so many domains now... and will be even more in the time ahead... that if some of them are "closed" to only a company, well, I'm not entirely sure that matters.  We'll have to see if all of these new TLDs really are used by people.

Sharing #myFIRview  while recording a contribution for an upcoming show. Hopefully, the one I recorded captures quiet ambience instead of departure lounge buzz.

I've learned a lot about communications by reading experts decrypt messages from the C-Suite. 
  Satya Nadella's latest message to the troops - and to the world - is disquieting. It lacks focus, specifics, and, if not soon shar

We're adding a new podcast to the FIR Podcast Network, one I'm particularly excited about (and will be a part of). Each month, a panel of International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Fellows will take a deep dive into a single communication topic of current interest. And it'll all be LIVE via Google+ Hangout on Air (then distributed as a regular FIR audio podcast). The first episode is set for this Thursday, July 30, at noon EDT. Details:

There's a very big story emerging about personal brand crashing into public interest. I hope +Shel Holtz and +Neville Hobson consider covering it as a discussion item. It has important fall-out for Wikimedia, the fourth estate and the democratic essence of the legislature.

I'd like to hear +Dan York talk about websocket technology and hear his thoughts on how we might be listening to FIR Episode 1000 while using browsers connecting to servers only with websockets and not plain https.

I learn a lot from The Economist and believe its management is correct on its analysis about the declining strength of advertisements as a sustainable model for digital content channels.
"The Economist has taken the view that advertising is nice, and we’ll certainly take money where we can get it, but we’re pretty much expecting it to go away."

I grew up steampunk and that's one reason why we grind our beans and head to the compost bin after coffee breaks. I hadn't considered the CSR dimension concerning office coffee docks until I dove into #killthekcup. The Vimeo video by Charles Wahl https://vimeo.com/116606409  is entertaining and made me think about the convenience of pods. 
K-Cups are accumulating in landfills at alarming rates.

When I return to the States, I'm alarmed at how easy it is to slip into "awesome" and to adopt "so" as the syntax replacing the er-em pause.

I would like to talk to you! (or someone you know or work with). I'm developing a new Podcast called YouTubular Conversations -- Interviews with communicators, storytellers, creators, and YouTubers - learning how they are adopting streaming media for their businesses, careers or communities. Also speaking to those who support YouTubers with legal, marketing, production, and promotional services. 

A tale of two fences. The first two folks I have learned from hold different views on the YouTube ecosystem. Uniquely, they both because "famous" for videos about fences... one Re: plowing into them and one Re: helping people build them. Apparently Good fences not only make good neighbors but also good YouTubers!

Reach me on Twitter @hhawk or via my web site.

There are important architectural reasons behind the dubya dubya dubya prefix to domain names. Perhaps +Dan York could add his two cents in an upcoming FIR report.
This page is intended for webmasters who are looking for information about whether or not to use www in their canonical web site URLs. First, a bit of terminology. The domain name without www is sometimes referred to as a naked domain , and I'll refer to it as such here.

I'll note, too, that they have a Github repo with the demo code and a link to a newer (2012) paper than the 2010 one you referenced.
