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

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

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.

Wondering if  +Dan York  might give his take on the proposed "accountable" protocol (httpa).

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 : -)

I had heard about this. Nice change from the usual visual interface, I suppose!

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

A reshare, as this is a topic that could make for an interesting discussion, perhaps when a bit more info on how this will actually look surfaces, presumably in early November.

I know +Shel Holtz and +Neville Hobson like to have the latest news for FIR - this may be a little edgy for you but check out this competition on Pinterest from US brand Schick Quattro for Women.

It is already alienating some of their Facebook fans.

It will be interesting to see how this develops in the next few days. They have invested significantly in the development of the website for the competition and the prizes are substantial.

I don't think I can agree with an assessment of "Too Edgy for Pinterest."

I don't think of Pinterest as a homogenous audience. Most of its users curate multiple pin boards, expressing radically different facets of their personalities and interests.

I'm glad the contest seems to be encouraging participants to run a board just for this. Other users who don't like the content will simply not subscribe to those boards, just like the millions of other boards they presently ignore.

Shel and Neville, I'm not sure if you'll be talking about the Starbucks in Hong Kong using bathroom water and the ensuing PR flap, but I thought you might be interested in this.

In my usual snarky way, I linked the case with Jell-O's odd FML campaign as a joke and tagged Starbucks. The company reached out to me with its corporate answer, but did it in a way that sounded human. Kudos to their social media team. (I've attached screen shots of my original and Starbucks' reply for reference.)

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.

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?

Worth considering for an item? This report focuses on the pros and cons for media companies of partnering with social media platforms like Facebook, which:

"can also be a Faustian bargain: Media companies gain a deeper knowledge of their audiences and a broader access to them but simultaneously sacrifice the control and centrality they enjoyed in the era of mass media."

But in an era where "all organisations are publishers", are the observations in this report limited to media companies? All companies, and indeed governments - need to consider the downside of relying on social platforms that:

"relegate [them] to being tangential players in the eyes of consumers, and subordinate in status compared to the social media giants."

This is probably worth an item (unless you've done iBeacon already?).

Apart from the obvious applications in ecommerce & "augmented shopping" (is that a word?), iBeacon has huge potential for when you organise conferences, exhibitions, networking events, etc, particularly if combined with a state-of-the-art event website which allows visitors to program their personal event online beforehand.
Summary: When iOS 7 is released next week, retailers and other large indoor spaces are going to be able to use a technology called iBeacon to send data over short distances to iPhones. Here’s how it will work.
