Facebook Is Going To Ruin Your News Feed With Auto-Playing Video Ads

Facebook Is Going To Ruin Your News Feed With Auto-Playing Video Ads | Fanny Salcedo | Scoop.it

In Facebook's quest to generate more revenue, it's going to muck up your News Feed with auto-playing videos, the FT reports.

 

Facebook is set to launch video advertising in its newsfeed in July...

Mr Branson's curator insight, May 8, 2013 5:42 AM

It will be interesting to see if Facebook or facebookers can make video and chat work? I don't think so. The business model of Facebook has always been 'social' interaction and now asking facebookers to watch video instead of chat or gossip may turn the tide for Facebook. 

Sage Osterfeld's curator insight, May 8, 2013 11:45 AM

Facebook taking a queue from porn sites. Great.

 

Is there anything more annoying that an autoplaying ad that you don't care about ruining whatever it is you're doing? Every time I run across one, it's usually below the scroll where I can see it so I'm like, "where the hell is that noise coming from?" (Then I scroll down and find the ad playing, right click on it and use my Ad Block plugin to keep that server from ever showing me an ad again.)

 

Elliottsweb's curator insight, May 23, 2013 10:49 AM

Oh no! Not more auto-playing ads!

MIT's Self-Assembling Robots Offer Whiffs of Optimus Prime

MIT's Self-Assembling Robots Offer Whiffs of Optimus Prime | Fanny Salcedo | Scoop.it

If the movies have taught us anything, it’s that the future isn’t just about robots–it’s about robots that can heal, adapt, and change their entire appearance at a moment’s notice. In a future directed by Michael Bay, that plays out as a semi-truck reconfiguring itself into a bipedal fighting machine halfway through a front-flip. For now, though, the action is a little more modest. In this clip, we see the real state of the art in self-assembling bots: a bunch of little magnetic cubes scuttling around a tabletop. It’s much cooler than it sounds.

The Unlikeliness of a Positive Sum Society

The Unlikeliness of a Positive Sum Society | Fanny Salcedo | Scoop.it

Oligarchy -- reflects the same old pyramid that failed the test of governance in nearly 100% of previous civilizations, always and invariably stifling creativity while guiding societies to delusion and ruin. It also means a return to zero-sum logic, zero-sum economics, zero-sum leadership thinking, a quashing of nonlinear synergies... the death of the Enlightenment.

"One of the defining characteristics of plant growth and morphology is the pivotal role of cell expansion. While the mechanical properties of the cell wall determine both the extent and direction of cell expansion, the cortical microtubule array plays a critical role in cell wall organization and, consequently, determining directional (anisotropic) cell expansion"

Do MOOCs Stand a Chance in China? | Fanny Salcedo | Scoop.it

The market is ripe for MOOCs in China. There’s a foundation of existing platforms, dedicated groups of individuals helping translate and communicate Western options in China and a large top-down focus from international and domestic universities. But will Chinese students buy into this platform as an effective outlet for knowledge?The answer is  likely yes, but it will remain small and niche.

Peter Csermely: Modular evolution and adaptation in complex systems

ECCO/GBI seminar: Modular evolution and adaptation in complex systems

 

Prof. Peter Csermely (LINK-Group, Semmelweis University, Department of Medical Chemistry csermely.peter@med.semmelweis-univ.hu)

 

Abstract: Our multidisciplinary group (www.linkgroup.hu) uses networks as 'highways' making the transfer of concepts between various disciplines. This allows the utilization of the 'wisdom' of biological systems surviving crisis events for many billions of years. The community structure of the protein-protein interaction network of yeast cells became more condensed upon stress. However, vital inter-community bridges were maintained and novel inter-community bridges were formed (PLoS Comput. Biol. 7, e1002187). Community reorganization emerged as general and novel systems level way of cost-efficient adaptation and evolution. Inter-community, highly dynamic 'creative nodes' not only determine the systems potential for fast adaptation, but also serve as a 'life insurance' in crisis. This is highly similar of the role of creative, gifted people in society. Creative transitions are served by an increased flexibility of the complex system. In other words: flexibility-increase increases the learning potential of the system. However, an 'over-flexible' system will not have a memory, and will unable to keep changes. An increase in system rigidity increases the memory storing ability of the system. Alternating changes of flexibility and rigidity emerge as a highly efficient optimization strategy of evolutionary changes.

Is the Web helping us evolve? | Fanny Salcedo | Scoop.it

So, is the Google era empowering us to be better, smarter, more agile thinkers? Or devolving us into distracted, manic scatterbrains? Is technology-improved discourse going to turn us all into avid, participatory problem solvers? Or will the Web’s centrifugal effects spin us all into little islands of shared conviction — midget Nuremberg rallies — where facts become irrelevant and any opinion can be a memic god?

Greg Downey's curator insight, March 12, 2013 6:08 PM

Vaughan Bell's stuff is always good, but this little post is particularly suggestive. Vaughan identifies some of the currents that fed into the idea that the brain was the seat of the self, including psychedelic drugs, military research, and pharmaceutical company advertising. On the last, he writes:

 

"In the following years, as neuroscience became prominent and psychoanalysis waned, pharmaceutical companies realised they had to sell theories to make their drugs marketable. The theories couldn’t be the messy ideas of actual science, however, they needed to be straightforward stories of how specific neurotransmitters were tied to simple psychological concepts, not least because psychiatric medication was now largely prescribed by family doctors. Low serotonin leads to depression, too much dopamine causes madness. The fact these theories were wrong was irrelevant, they just needed to be reason enough to prescribe the advertised pill. The Prozac generation was sold and the pharmacology of self became dinner table conversation."
