Oh my...great article for making sure your introverts are heard! 

Gregory Cheong's curator insight, October 5, 2013 4:58 AM

The modern workplace is not for the introverts 

Dr. Alison Eyring's curator insight, October 6, 2013 8:54 PM

Forget that title! Introverts who perform are most welcome in modern workplaces. They need to ensure they are spending time building relationships and are getting their views heard by others. At the same time, extroverts need to ensure they are not hogging all the space in the conversation or dominating groups when they lack sufficient knowledge. A modern workplace also is an inclusive one.

Why We Love Certain Brands by @DavidBrier

Why We Love Certain Brands by @DavidBrier | content motorist | Scoop.it

Seth Godin wrote, “A brand’s value is merely the sum total of how much extra people will pay, or how often they choose, the expectations, memories, stories and relationships of one brand over the alternatives.”After all, there are brands we as consumers absolutely love. And there are brands we as consumers can’t stand.So what’s the difference between those we admire versus the ones we despise? And is there something we do to monitor the course our brand is taking in this battle between love and hate?...

7 Elements of a Successful Social Business

Social organization

Angela Balzano's curator insight, February 19, 1:44 PM

This article outlines the 7 Elements of A Successful Social Business.  These elements include 1. Define a meaningful purpose 2. Simplify the user experience 3. Designate a social executive sponsor 4. Trust your people 5. Implement and drive engagement 6. Measure adoption and recognize achievements 7. Embrace change and have fun.


Marketing and advertising has made the switch to being consumer-centered rather than company-centered.  Businesses know that they way to reach consumers is by creating communications and content that consumers want to see or is useful to them in some way.  To make this happen on a large scale, and to strengthen the relationship between business and customer, social media must be integrated in a company's business plan from the ground up.  Social media must not be a side function, there needs to be dedication, creativity, and passion for social communication within the business in order to capture your audience through social media.  Those who sparing invest in social media will surely be left behind and irrelevant in the near future.  -Angela

How To Self-Publish a Book With WordPress

How To Self-Publish a Book With WordPress | content motorist | Scoop.it

Whether you’re circulating a periodic publication or writing a book, WordPress provides an easy way to organize and structure your content while it’s in process. Posts can be kept private while you’re working on finishing the book. Alternatively, you can release installments of your work to the public by publishing them on your WordPress site. This option gives you the benefit of community feedback during the process of writing your book.


Whatever process you choose to enhance your workflow is up to you. WordPress offers the flexibility and tools for any approach and provides several advantages over traditional publishing houses

node.js & socket.io chat app with GeoLocation and User Agent support

node.js & socket.io chat app with GeoLocation and User Agent support | content motorist | Scoop.it

I constantly keep on updating the application and the code behind it and today it's time for another update. After a few hours of working on this I have not only added some new features but I have refactored some of my code as well as made the app look prettier (and I still can't call myself a designer)

Let's go through these new changes and enhancements now starting right off with the code changes to the backend.

I have started using the wonderful underscorejs.org library that provides functional programming support for JavaScript - it's especially useful when you do lot of operations on arrays and collections. Before, I was using code to manipulate collections that I either put together on my own or have copied from some other place. With underscore.js things got a lot simpler and neater.

Here Are the Finalists for the Year's Best Brands on Twitter, Vine and Everywhere Else | content motorist | Scoop.it

Each year, the list of branded social media accomplishments grows longer, and the Shorty Awards are never far behind in recognizing them.

 

This year's roster of finalists, being announced today, includes nominees in categories ranging from "Best Brand on Vine" to the delightfully meta "Best Use of Social Media by One Brand Responding to Another Brand."

 

"New platforms continue to emerge and evolve at an unrelenting pace. While most struggle to keep up, Shorty Awards finalists are thriving in this environment," Greg Galant, executive producer and cofounder of the Shorty Awards tells Adweek. "We'll be celebrating their creations on every form of social media."

Applying Transformations To Responsive Web Design with XSLT and Tritium

Applying Transformations To Responsive Web Design with XSLT and Tritium | content motorist | Scoop.it

Transformations are a simple yet powerful technique for separating content and presentation in Web applications. Yet, outside of enterprise and data-processing circles, transformations have failed to gain popularity through XSLT. As a result, Web developers are liable to think that transformations “don’t apply to me,” even though they work with HTML, a structured format ripe for transformation. Thankfully, new transformation frameworks are on the horizon, including work by the inventor of Sass, that hold the promise of a revival.

In this article, we will reintroduce transformations and explore their applications to mobile and responsive design. We will not only teach the old dog new tricks, but show that transformations are relevant to everyone who deals with HTML.

In terms of specific titles, well, there’s Richard Dawkins’ The Greatest Show on Earth, Barack Obama’s The Audacity of Hope, and the 2005 classic Freakonomics, from University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and New York Times journalist Stephen J. Dubner.
