Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, September 26, 2:12 PM

You can't say Lee Odden doesn't practice what he preaches.


In this compilation of perspectives for the future of B2B Marketing, he curated views from dozens of influencers on what they felt the future would bring. And he of course added his own insight on slide 36 which is very interesting because you get that the concept of the whole slideshare is precisely that: Participation Marketing. 


His point is that content marketing works as it gets B2B buyers through 60-90% of the sales cycle before they even call sales. 


The problem then?


Scaling it.


What he offers as a framework to scale this is Participation Marketing which means involving not only influencers or guest contributors but also current customers and your target audience in your content creation process. 


A great example of that is what the University of San Francisco did to leverage its community of faculty and students to help their own marketing efforts.

Lori Wilk's curator insight, November 11, 8:55 PM

This slide share #presentation demonstrates what #contentcuration is and how to integrate it into an effective #marketing plan for your #business. I liked the mention of tools including #scoopit, Prismatic, Newsle, Feedle, HootSuite, and Buffer to name a few. Finding relevant #content to share with your audience and having an organized way to connect this content to your audience are all important. It has to flow from finding the content to smoothly sharing and improving your #influence by expanding your #visibility and #reach. I love to say you must magnify and multiply your online efforts for #success.

I was taught to write using Strunk and White's "Elements of Style" as my textbook. One of their first commandments. "Omit needless words," still ring in my ears. This does not mean, however, all uses of words like "just", "really", "maybe", "quite", and the other terms mentioned in this video have no use in lean writing. "Perhaps" the author took a strong stance "just" to flag the attention of writers to careful use of such terms.

Requisite Variety, Autopoiesis, and Self-organization

Ashby's law of requisite variety states that a controller must have at least as much variety (complexity) as the controlled. Maturana and Varela proposed autopoiesis (self-production) to define living systems. Living systems also require to fulfill the law of requisite variety. A measure of autopoiesis has been proposed as the ratio between the complexity of a system and the complexity of its environment. Self-organization can be used as a concept to guide the design of systems towards higher values of autopoiesis, with the potential of making technology more "living", i.e. adaptive and robust.

Emmanuel 'Manny' Gigante's curator insight, June 11, 1:22 PM

YOUR #roadmap  thanks @Scoop.it

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 11, 3:26 PM

We advocate persona-fication--persona development--to better identify and understand your audience.  Here's a great article on content strategy that speaks to the value of personas.  Students sometimes struggle with understanding why a 'made-up person' is going to be of any value, particularly since we all have inherent cognitive biases that color our judgment.  


There is no doubt that bias will influence persona development.  But everyone has developed a persona whether they admit it or not--it's living in their brain as the assumption of who they are marketing too.  Too often the lack of articulation increases the bias, not decreases it.  Benefits of creating a persona publicly is to compare them with others in the team AND the audience, in other words to expose your bias.   Qualitative researchers keep a journal during data collection and analysis for this very reason--the journal chronicles the researcher's perspective to bring potential biases to light.  It is exactly when the marketing team has little in common with the audience who uses a product that creating a persona has value for two reasons: 1) you test the persona in the market against real people and 2) you can (although not all do) externalize yourself from the persona--step aside and have a dialogue, much in the gestalt therapy fashion,.  When done with proper guidance (i.e. someone who is trained in this kind of stuff), these approaches can provide new and often startling perspectives.  


Personas don't always work.  Nothing is foolproof.  The 'right' persona doesn't guarantee that your product is any good or that your messaging is very salient or sticky.  There are other skills required besides persona development.  Going through a persona development exercise, however, is likely to have gotten you closer than you would have otherwise.

Grand challenges for Computational Intelligence

The intelligence phenomenon continues to fascinate scientists and engineers, remaining an elusive moving target. Following numerous past observations (e.g., Hofstadter, 1985, p. 585), it can be pointed out that several attempts to construct “artificial intelligence” have turned to designing programs with discriminative power. These programs would allow computers to discern between meaningful and meaningless in similar ways to how humans perform this task. Interestingly, as noted by de Looze (2006) among others, such discrimination is based on etymology of “intellect” derived from Latin “intellego” (inter-lego): to choose between, or to perceive/read (a core message) between (alternatives). In terms of computational intelligence, the ability to read between the lines, extracting some new essence, corresponds to mechanisms capable of generating computational novelty and choice, coupled with active perception, learning, prediction, and post-diction. When a robot demonstrates a stable control in presence of a priori unknown environmental perturbations, it exhibits intelligence. When a software agent generates and learns new behaviors in a self-organizing rather than a predefined way, it seems to be curiosity-driven. When an algorithm rapidly solves a hard computational problem, by efficiently exploring its search-space, it appears intelligent.
