Speed-camera critic snaffles ‘stay alert’ domain... Owner of the website is quoted: "Surely to complete the message, they should have obtained the domain names for the PR campaign they are trying to thrust in front of us every day on the road."
Equally concerning is the lack of online marketing strategy evident after not registering the domain. Having a targeted domain name is one of the first things on any SEO, SEM check list. Clearly someone in the department is useless at their job. For just $6 a year the Victorian government could be holding this domain and having it redirect to the official site. The cost now to correct this error and improve search engine rankings will be significant, not impossible but will require deligence and a deep understand of SEO techniques, which the Govt clearly does not have.
The pressure in Mount Fuji's magma chamber is now higher than it was in 1707, the last time the nearly 4,000-metre-high Japanese volcano erupted, causing volcanologists to speculate that a disaster is imminent...
“Our biggest problems come because people have been a little bit too heavy handed in burning and dodging,” Westergren says, noting that outright manipulation is rare. “A lot will oversaturate the picture, or some really like the desaturated look, what the French call ‘sub-saturated.’ It’s easy to fall in love with those pictures because they look cool.”
The latest from the 5th International Scientific Symposium on Tea and Human Health... The top researchers in the tea-health field (yes, it's a field -- a glorious one) propose tea as part of the approach to weight loss, heart health, and bone/muscle strength.
But then Romney goes on. “However, there remains a lack of scientific consensus on the issue—on the extent of the warming, the extent of the human contribution, and the severity of the risk—and I believe we must support continued debate and investigation within the scientific community.” Sure, scientists are continuing to refine their understanding of climate change—they’re stubborn like that, always trying to improve their models—but there’s no true debate on the extent of the human contribution (if it weren’t for the human contribution, the climate would likely be cooling) and the question of severity of risk isn’t between “a smidge of risk” and “something we should probably pay attention to.” It’s between “really bad” and “difficult to imagine just how really bad.”
So… there was a design competition in Guangzhou, China, some time back and designers He Mu and Zhang Qian from Shanghai University of Engineering Science presented the above: The Sunflower Chair. The competition was called The Design for Sitting Gran Prix and this exhibit won the Redtory Design Award.
That’s pretty much all we know about this awesome piece of furniture. It doesn’t look like you can buy it, and that’s a shame because that’s one product made in China that we’d actually want (as opposed to simply accept for its lower cost).
Russian President Vladimir Putin says the case of Julian Assange appears 'political', accusing Britain of double standards over the order to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to Sweden on sex crime charges.
When we take pause to appreciate where we are, we can truly appreciate just how far we’ve come.
I recently stumbled across an interesting infographic as it made the rounds across the social web recently. Created by bestedsites.com, the graphic visualizes the meteoric rise of the Internet in just 10 years. For example, in 2002, the Internet boasted 569 million users, which represented 9.1% of the world population. In 2012, that number skyrocketed to 2.27 billion at 33% of the world population. Another tremendous stat is the daily time spent online. In 2002 it was only 46 minutes a day (that was probably the time it took to load one web site). In 2012, it’s clocked four hours a day.
As I was reveling in the rapid evolution and ascent of the internet in general, I took stock of Facebook’s growth. Well, I suppose not literally. Looking at Facebook as a subset of this particular infographic would provide a visual comparison of the static and social web. I once wrote that to the connected consumer, the end of the destination web was upon us. The flow of information has been disrupted. While websites aren’t dead they certainly don’t meet the needs and expectations of a much more real-time audience who live in their egosystem and benefit from news and information finding them. We live in an era where news no longer breaks, it Tweets. As such, I’d love to see a visual comparison of the destination and social web and the numbers between them.
