Luna Mattress Cover Internet of Things To Come Startup & Great VNR | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Luna is the smart bed cover that learns about you and improves your sleep experience.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Saw a Great VNR (Video News Release) today for Luna Sleep's new web connected mattress.Luna can connect to your phone an and NEST thermostat. Since the mattress cover is "learning" by recording out to the cloud it can make recommendations about things that help / hurt your sleep cycles.

More Thoughts On Online Audience Optimization vs. SEO

More Thoughts On Online Audience Optimization vs. SEO | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Beware The NEW Acronym Isn't Same As The Old (SEO)
There was a summer night sitting on the beach watching fireflies when we knew something had to change. Directors of Ecommerce like I used to be learned how to balance a website between the technical aspects of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and the functional and practical aspects of what is now being called OAO (Online Audience Optimization).

Sometimes the new boss is the same as the old, but this isn't one of those. This new acronym seems strained and way to general to ever attain the universal meaning of SEO. Problem is SEO really became the one term everyone knew but didn’t really understand. 

Even if you sort of maybe worked on a website a little years ago you knew SEO, but no your really didn't. SEO was a complex set of rules for using Google's algorithm math against it. They set up the game so using it against them seemed fair. 

Problem is fair to whom. Obsession with Google required ignoring customers and finding the balance beam between them (Google and customers) became larger the longer someone managed a website. Google is like Kool-Aid the longer you drink it the more it took over. 

Now with Google's new emphasis on heuristics, the data showing how many HEARTS and MINDS you influence, Kool-Aid is replaced by whatever is working now. "Working" in this context is winning the signals that confirm growing LOVE and ADVOCACY. 

Fewer rules and more variables mean those who know themselves best, listen better and pivot faster win. If you can do that best by using a new three-letter acronym OAO should work. Just don't fall in love with the wrong thing (again), don't drink this Kool-Aid.

Bitcoin Manifesto: Bitcoin Changes Global Ecom, Money & Our Value Systems


Bitcoin Ecom Game Changer
What is missing from global ecommere? I know that question can cover a lot of territory, but the hint was use of the word "global". @David Amerlandwrote a highly influential post recently:

What If We Had A New Value System For Goods  & Services
http://davidamerland.com/seo-blog/692-what-if-we-had-a-new-value-system-for-goods-and-services.html

Great read. Now put David's post into the Bitcoin context and its easy to see why "universal, trusted online currency" is a big missing piece for global online ecommerce.

I've purchased things from London, but its a pain. That pain takes two forms: currency and shipping. We can't solve shipping until we crete a currency that works around the world.

Enter one of Bitcoin's big benefits.

But Bitcoin is more than a universal currency. Bitcoin is the illusive universal infrastructure long sought by Facebook and Google. Bitcoin is a platform leveler, a new way to program that beats Auth.net all to hell.

This Bitcoin manifesto makes for fascinating reading. Put aside the idea of a floating currency currently running at $350 dollars to a single Bitcoin with the real possibility of going above $1000 soon and read the paper from the "what do we need to make ecommerce really word around the web and the world" and you see the real power of Bitcoin.
