Whoa....The EU Is Building The World's Most Powerful Laser Beam To 'Zap' Nuclear Waste
The EXTREME LIGHT INFRASTRUCTURE project (ELI) involves nearly 40 research and academic institutions from 13 different states within the European Unioin.
There will be four separate sites throughout Europe that make up the facility when it is completed: the one in Romania, another in Hungary, a third in the Czech Republic, and a fourth in a location that has yet to be named

Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda, ends her speech in Sofia, 20 September 2012 with the following: "To find its place in the future global economy, Europe needs to become the connected, competitive continent. The e-EU. The right networks, skills and innovation can transform Europe for the better. I hope I can count on your support."
Privacy is a big challenge when it comes to Social Media. The privacy policies seem to be difficult and actually not helping a lot to protect the privacy of the individual participants in those networks. In particular those who just now get on the band wagon of social networking often times hear about privacy issues of Facebook or Google and other platforms.
I gave this talk at TechWeek L.A. (where else on such a topic?) last week as I felt the new social media evolutions, particularly the rise of the interest graph, are making things move quickly on that subject.
Why do we remember famous people in history? How? How about today's celebrities? And how are the Internet and the Social Web changing that now?
A look at the fame creation process tells us it is indissociable from the media creation process, which has been deeply impacted by new information technology. The Andy Warhol prediction is probably no longer valid and we need to rethink fame in the context of a distributed Internet network which more and more becomes topic-centric and no longer people-centric.

Unique economic development programme from a private initiative - planning to create 2 Million jobs.
Europe, September 6 2012,
Economic stimulation programmes are something you would expect from government – not any more.
A group of nearly 300 independent executives, business owners, and social media consultants have joined forces to give small and medium-sized businesses in Europe an unexpected helping hand to overcome their economic challenges.
This newly formed group has done extensive research via crowdsourcing and created what they call an “alternative growth strategy”, designed to help companies grow revenue by expanding their business across Europe.
What started with a keynote presentation by Axel Schultze to the European Commission during the Digital Agenda Assembly conference in June 2012 has now taken on a life of its own. In preparation for the EC presentation, Schultze assembled a team of over 100 social media savvy volunteers to conduct research about the prevalence of social media in Europe.
Axel Schultze, the founder and leader of the DSEU initiative is planning to create 2 Million new jobs by 2016. He is preparing the organisation to support approximately 100,000 of the nearly 20 Million businesses registered in Europe.
The focus is on providing free education, strategy development materials, information events and limited free consulting through a group of over 1,000 professional social media business consultants over the next four years. The majority of the funding for this project is coming from larger enterprises, like technology and communication companies, who want to enter the European midmarket.
Businesses interested in getting inspired by the Digital Sunrise team can register on their website at http://digitalsunrise.eu/start/bizzmember/ and get access to a variety of information, strategy templates and information events.
Social technologies have the potential to free up expertise trapped in departmental silos. High-skill workers can now be tapped company-wide. Managers can find out “which employees have the deepest knowledge in certain subjects, or who last contributed to a project and how to get in touch with them quickly,” says New York Times tech reporter Quentin Hardy. Just cutting email out of the picture in favor of social sharing translates to a productivity windfall as “more enterprise information becomes accessible and searchable, rather than locked up as ‘dark matter’ in inboxes.”
We estimate the need for approximately 100 strategists in the next 9 month and roughly 500 in the next 4 years to cover all EU Member Countries sufficiently. In addition we may need twice as many consultants working together with the strategists.
Every DSEU Strategist will need to be able to help SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) to implement a social media strategy or at least deliver the services included in the DSEU Social Media Starter Kit. Once businesses are up and running and most importantly: successful – they may want to take their initiative to the next level and hire you to help them get there. Here are some of the tasks you will need to be able to perform: #DSEU
