Google Glass Wearer Attacked in San Francisco Bar. Was It a Hate Crime?

Google Glass Wearer Attacked in San Francisco Bar. Was It a Hate Crime? | Manage information systems | Scoop.it

Last week, Sarah Slocum, a San Francisco-based tech writer, wore Google Glass to a bar and was cursed out and assaulted by two women who ripped the Glass off her face. In Facebook post responding to the attack, Slocum called it a “hate crime,” but the media response has ranged from hostile to dismissive. Newser's Matt Cantor referred to Slocum as a "Glasshole" and New York magazine's Adam Martin called her argument an "overly fraught discussion of some idiocy that happened on the kind of drunken night you would usually want to forget.

Google's Hangout's have grown up and we're getting our first taste of their multi-tool-integrated monetezation strategy for them. "Helpouts" are hangouts where you pay to have someone help you, teach you, train you etc. They integrate deep into the Google ecosystem and present some unique marketing opportunities. I'm pleased to see them working on funding models for this that are not display ad driven.

Netflix is About to Piss Off a Whole Lot of Customers — Get Ready For a Big Change

Netflix is About to Piss Off a Whole Lot of Customers — Get Ready For a Big Change | Manage information systems | Scoop.it

The news: Netflix is contemplating a price-hike for its users in the United States. Coming off of a strong 2013, the video-streaming service is considering plans that would take its price beyond the current $7.99. But before you panic, the price increases would likely come in the way of expanding services. Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, said, “It’s not clear that one price fits all” for Netflix’s streaming services. The idea would be to implement a tiered offering of streaming packages that consumers could choose from. The most basic would likely remain at $7.99, with the option for expanded service at an increased price. Nothing is set in stone, though. In a letter to shareholders last week, Netflix said that it is in “no rush to implement such new member plans and is still researching the best way to proceed,” and that even if the company does “make pricing changes for new members, existing members would get generous grandfathering of their existing plans and prices.” It is not even clear that Netflix is going to move forward with this. Remember the last time Netflix tried implementing a major overhaul of its services? Qwikster was around barely for a few weeks before overwhelming backlash put the kibosh on it. Changes to Netflix’s offerings are easier said than done. Netflix users are a particularly organized and active bunch. When Netflix wants to rally its troops in the company’s favor, this comes in handy. But when the attention turns against Netflix itself, this can make service changes particularly difficult to enact. Netflix users don’t like change, especially when it’s a price increase (I mean, who does?). But there are clues that point to some sort of price change on the horizon. Netflix has already phased in an $11.99 plan for users to stream to four devices at once. And if Netflix wants to keep up with increasing competition, it may need to start making serious moves. In the same shareholder letter, Hastings pointed to growth from Hulu, Amazon, and iTunes that makes it necessary for Netflix to adjust its offerings. Whatever Netflix decides to do, the company seems committed to ensuring that current customers retain their current plans and prices, at least for the time being. So while price increases might be coming eventually, they're not imminent.

At first glance you look at this through tinted glasses and thoughts include:

1 Google tries to take over the world

2. It will never work.

3. Isn't something like that already happening

THEN you actually start thinking about this.

 

Imagine a whole new world. A sales person offers you a free ride to the airport or into town. The catch is that for half of the journey you have to listen to their sales spiel, perhaps taste test their new samples or review a product designed for people with your profile. Does it still sound silly? Does it stll sound like Philip K Dick or is it mutually beneficial?

 

Are you thinking outside of he square yet? Imagine an event full of people who by the nature of the event have a profile that miatches your product and you give them a free cab ride home?  Make economic sense? Maybe....

What is the Future of Work?

What is the Future of Work? | Manage information systems | Scoop.it

Social media is relentlessly chipping away at the power and control that companies and governments have long enjoyed almost exclusively over the rest of the world. Supply chains, talent management (hiring), customer service, product development, and just about every function of business is being transformed by things like 3D printing, social recruiting, customer care communities, crowdsourcing, to only name a few of the more important examples.


That’s not even looking at the macro changes (example: Arab Spring), in which digital/social is impacting the fabric of entire nations. In all of these cases, the power and control is shifting to the other side of the network, to what many now call the ‘edge’, where most of us are.

How to Avoid Over-Communicating With Your Audience - Business 2 Community

How to Avoid Over-Communicating With Your Audience - Business 2 Community | Manage information systems | Scoop.it

An exciting part of running a business is communicating with your target audience – creating and sharing marketing collateral, engaging on social media, and sending emails to subscribers. However, it is possible to over-communicate – so it’s important to tune in to how your audience reacts to these types of communication in order to determine just how much is enough to fulfill, but not exceed, their expectations. It’s true: frequency improves compliance. However, you don’t want to annoy your loyal audience by repeatedly sending out communication to reach those who haven’t taken action yet.

Netflix and Amazon understand something most "new to web" catalog merchants don't - information is both means and ends. Online scale depends on information more than money. 

This post is about how Netflix uses their reviews-based User Generated Content engine to disrupt online retailing. Where that disruption will end who knows? The advantage of online scale is, once built, you can point a scaled and increasingly intelligent system at any business vertical and win. 

Amazon will make more money from their cloud services than from book sales soon. Why? Because online scale presents ways to monetize one could only imaging at the beginning of the journey. Netflix's genius use of review curation shows, once again, the value of online scale and of thinking like an Internet marketer instead of print or brick and mortar based retailer....at least online.
