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 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.

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

Would you be open for a guest podcast piece for an upcoming episode? I'd like to share my experiences in being a contestant in the Genghis Grilll Health Kwest, and what I learned about how to run a contest with a strong social media component.

Data protection in Europe and America - the next Bruffle?

The latest kerfuffle from Brussels (which I am unilaterally adding to the dictionary as a Bruffle) looks likely to be the EU's new data protection law, which passed a key stage in the EU Parliament at rocket-busting speed, despite record numbers of amendments.

According to the WSJ, below, "At least one parliament insider in Strasbourg had to cancel his dinner..." the whole thing went so fast. Oh dear!

The reason's simple: PRISM.

However, the WSJ doesn't go into enough detail - as the FT's Brussels Blog (behind a paywall at http://blogs.ft.com/brusselsblog/2013/10/reding-declares-victory-prematurely-on-data-protection-overhaul/) points out, the agreement needs to be approved by national parliaments, and there are many who have serious concerns.

The bottom line, though. is that US and EU data protection law is going to diverge to some extent at least, and that this is going to be a Total Headache for any company which holds user data (as all marketers do) and works in both regions ... or which uses subcontractors who do.

Something for an FIR story at some point?

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 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.

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.

Because I can't see +Dan York's work on  Typepad's servers, I'd like to hear how he would construct Say Media's public commentary in the wake of their DDoS problem.

In keeping with your ongoing discussion on audio and the comeback of voice, Shel and Neville, what do you make of  this app designed to help folks find a match with just a voice clip? And what's with these services dropping a vowel?  I mean vowl : -)

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but here's an article from Digiday on our favorite topic - real-time marketing - during the Grammys on Sunday evening. There are some stinkers here, but the clear winner of the evening was Arby's, who demonstrated that humor and a light touch - particularly devoid of product promotion - won the night. #RTM  
The awards season is kicking into high gear with the Grammy Awards. And, of course, that means brands are hunkered down in their social command centers, ready for duty. We decided to skip the telecast of the awards and instead follow the action through brands' Twitter accounts. Here's what we learned
