How Much Is the Internet's Electric Bill? [INFOGRAPHIC]

How Much Is the Internet's Electric Bill? [INFOGRAPHIC] | No(n)sense | Scoop.it
The data centers that keep the Internet running require an incredible amount of electricity every year ... and they waste most of it.

 

While surfing the web, you’re probably more concerned with the charge left on your laptop’s battery. But how much power does it require to keep the Internet itself running?

Powering worldwide data centers for major web companies like Google and Amazon is a huge undertaking. Between the servers and their cooling systems, 'data barns' consume 30 billion watts annually, about 1.5% of global electricity. And at the rate the Internet is growing and adding users, expect that to rise significantly in the next several years.

 

Are these centers being run efficiently? What toll does it take on the environment just to make sure your Facebook status (and a billion other Facebook users’) reaches the masses?

What does your brand stand for? [inforgraphic]

What does your brand stand for? [inforgraphic] | No(n)sense | Scoop.it
A brand is like the lead character of its own story.  And like any story character, brands  have values and beliefs that become associated with them through their actions.  The challenge for marketers is to characterize their brands first before...

 

Here's a terrific infographic from colleague Jim Signorelli that will help you create a persona for your business. Once you have a persona, it becomes much easier to target your storytelling and marketing/branding efforts. And connect more forcefully with customers.

 

There are 2 ways of finding your persona:

Examine all of your stories and determine their common characteristics. Then look at Jim's infographic to refine and finalize those qualities. Create your persona based on your discoveries. Examine this infographic to determine which character/characters you think you/your business embodies most. Check it against your stories. Build your persona from there.

What is a persona? It is a descriptive profile of a typical customer that includes a character type/archetype, demographic info, and as much flesh and bones information you can collect to create a bit of a story about this customer -- their likes, dislikes, challenges, etc.

 

Thanks Jim for putting together this very helpful infographic.

 

And if you want to dig into this topic more -- and get even smarter about using archetypes for marketing/branding -- read The Hero and The Outlaw; Building Extraordinary Brands Through the Power of Archetypes by M. Mark & C. Pearson. It's one of my bibles :)

Getting the Balance Right: The innovation ecosystem, Infographic

Getting the Balance Right:  The innovation ecosystem, Infographic | No(n)sense | Scoop.it

"The right innovation mix, core, adjacent, and transformational  depends on your business and your needs."

 

Excerpted:

 

There are three main components of an organisation’s innovation ecosystem. Getting the balance right between these three components is crucial:

   

1) Balance/Mix of innovation types

  

2) Structure (process, capabilities, culture, funding)

   

3) Metrics & tracking

 

Core innovation is the largest amount of effort (70%) ...typically more incremental improvements

  

Adjacent innovation, riskier.  can involve taking existing products to new markets or, more commonly, developing value-add products or services to existing core     Transformational innovation, highest risk - new products and services, new markets – big changes to the business

How To Ask [for stories]--And Listen [to stories]--Like You Mean It

How To Ask [for stories]--And Listen [to stories]--Like You Mean It | No(n)sense | Scoop.it

Questions are the expressive, probing language for growing others; listening is the receptive, facilitating language for growing others. These two complementary approaches form a continuous growth conversation loop.

 

Leaders who are helping others to grow and innovate are always trying to craft the best questions to make a difference. Here's how to ask the questions that will propel your team and your organization forward.

 

Listening -- I mean listening really well -- is sometimes hard to do. Here's a great article by Kevin Cashman, author of The Pause Principle, reminding us that the more deeply and authentically we can listen to another, the deeper our questions go, and the deeper our understanding becomes.

 

Listening deeply is the first storytelling skill to build -- so you know which story to share or ask for. And then so you can dig more deeply into the story to understand what it really means.

 

For leaders, this is essential. For anyone wanting to master business storytelling, it is critical. Many marketing and branding folks have still not caught on to listening as being a vital component when using stories.

 

Sooooo -- here's a reminder that also contains some great insights, a list of what not to do, and a nice section on the power of authentic questions.

 

Now I'll go on a hunt and see if I can find an article for you just on the Art of the Question. For as they say in Appreciative Inquiry, the question is the intervention -- so knowing how to craft and ask the question is key.

 

In the meantime, enjoy this article.

Leadership Challenges: Embrace paradoxes to move forward

Leadership Challenges: Embrace paradoxes to move forward | No(n)sense | Scoop.it

"This provocative post highlights current business paradoxes challenging leaders:  change or remain stable, complexity versus simplicity, growth and sustainability and more."

 

After seeing evidence of our increasingly VUCA world, one that is growing in its Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous characteristics, this useful list of paradoxes resonates.  Does it resonate to your experience?

 

___________________________

  

Leaders must find ways to deal with this complexity and embrace and manage it to achieve simplicity.

___________________________

   

 

Excerpted:

  

Paradox 1: growth versus sustainability

Growth as it is currently defined tends to result in an unquestioned and unchecked consumption of resources. Sustainability considerations are generally considered to put a major strain on growth ambitions.

 

The way forward is innovation, but another paradox present itself:

  

Paradox 2: innovating versus operating

Innovation is increasingly about service, process, business model and social innovation.

However, focusing on innovation does not mean ignoring operations. The trick is that what allows operations to thrive can seriously get in the way of innovation and vice versa.

  

Paradox 3:  change versus continuity

If you try to innovate too many things at once you will end up with chaos, if you do not change at all your organisation will decline. What is the right balance?

  

Paradox 4: collaboration versus competition

Business is inherently competitive yet today, collaboration is common, with most companies having collaborated with their suppliers and their customers. Leading companies are promoting collaboration through crowdsourcing or with competitors.

  

Paradox 5: complexity versus simplicity

Demands on leaders result in increasing levels of complexity, arising from the number of possible, unpredictable interactions between collaborate, compete; change, remain stable; innovation or operational excellence; growth or sustainability. Leaders must find ways to deal with this complexity and embrace and manage it to achieve simplicity.

  

Paradox 6: Heart versus mind

Decisions need to be made in the face of incomplete analysis, unpredictable outcomes and changing circumstances. The foundations for analysis and factual arguments differ from emotional and visionary engagement; people who excel at one are not necessarily particularly good at the other and yet both are needed.

Are Earthquakes and Fracking Wastewater Injection Wells Related?

Are Earthquakes and Fracking Wastewater Injection Wells Related? | No(n)sense | Scoop.it

Two new papers tie a recent increase in significant earthquakes to reinjection of wastewater fluids from unconventional oil and gas drilling. The first study notes “significant earthquakes are increasingly occurring within the United States midcontinent.” In the specific case of Oklahoma, a Magnitude “5.7 earthquake and a prolific sequence of related events … were likely triggered by fluid injection.”
The second study, of the Raton Basin of Southern Colorado/Northern New Mexico by a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) team, concludes “the majority, if not all of the earthquakes since August 2001 have been triggered by the deep injection of wastewater related to the production of natural gas from the coal-bed methane field here.”

Both studies are being presented at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union this week.
These studies, together with other recent findings, make a strong case that we need national regulations on wastewater injection to prevent induced earthquakes...

The Emotional Cycle of Digital Interactivity

The Emotional Cycle of Digital Interactivity | No(n)sense | Scoop.it

"I’ve long maintained that phenomena like “social media” are behaviors, more so than channels or applications or types of media inventory, what have you. There are extrinsic factors at play like market movements, various forms of scarcity, supply and demand levers, etc. and there are intrinsic factors like human emotion that are rarely, if ever, discussed when it comes to making investments in these types of ventures."

 

My colleague and fellow curator Jan L. Gordon originally shared this post and I thought it would be great to include here also.

 

Why? Because effective storytelling is about conveying emotions. Yet when we share our biz stories, what emotions should we be focusing on? It is easy to default to hope. Or confidence. 

 

What I like about this chart and post is that it addresses the common emotions people experience as they interact and share online -- both positive and negative.

 

It seems logical to me that in knowing this information, we should be paying attention to whether the emotions we are conveying in our biz stories online are connecting with the emotional experiences of people. This chart can help us figure it out.

 

Now, I wouldn't want to be limited to slavishly sticking to this chart. But it is a good place to begin!

 

As the author, Gunther Sonnenfeld says, "I believe that any great technology venture (any great company, really) must provide doors to perception and discovery that look well beyond transactional or even relationship benefits to some degree." Yeah! Treating business storytelling as purely transactional or relational is only the first rung of effectiveness.

 

And don't forget to read the comments at the end of the post. They are chock full of great insights and discussion about online storytelling, branding, and emotion.

 

Thank you Jan for finding this gem! @janlgordon

Feeding the World Sustainably: Agroecology vs. Industrial Agriculture

Feeding the World Sustainably: Agroecology vs. Industrial Agriculture | No(n)sense | Scoop.it
There are currently 1 billion people in the world today who are hungry. There's also another billion people who over eat unhealthy foods.

 Food production around the world today is mostly done through industrial agriculture, and by judging current issues with obesity, worldwide food shortages, and the destruction of soil, it may not be the best process. We need to be able to feed our world without destroying it, and finding a more sustainable approach to accomplishing that is becoming more important.

The current system contributes to 1/3 of global emissions, is a polluter of our world’s water resources, and is a contributor to health problems. Industrial agriculture relies on mass produced, mechanized labor-saving policies that have pushed people out of rural areas and into cities, consolidating land and resources into fewer hands.

Agroecology looks to reduces agriculture’s impact on climate by working within natural systems. This is especially beneficial in rural areas, because the local community a major part of the growing process. The approach can conserve and protect soil and water — through terracing, contour farming, intercropping, and agroforestry — especially beneficial in areas where farmers lack modern irrigation infrastructure, or have farms situated on hillsides and other difficult farming sites...

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, October 1, 2013 9:53 PM

Clearly industrial agriculture is not sustainable, and must be replaced entirely with systems that reverse the current damage and restore the balance that used to exist before we messed things up.  We can use plants and animals not only to feed ourselves, but to *improve* the environment for all life on the planet.

The Balance of Fearlessness, Jacqueline Novogratz, CEO of Acumen Fund, Businesses Aiding the World’s Poor

The Balance of Fearlessness, Jacqueline Novogratz, CEO of Acumen Fund, Businesses Aiding the World’s Poor | No(n)sense | Scoop.it

Jacqueline Novogratz of the Acumen Fund, which invests in businesses aiding the world’s poor, says, '...it’s holding that balance of not being reckless, but also having a huge element of fearlessness.'"

  

Insights into those working with the world's poor, including this leader, sheds light on moldering, out-of-date leadership practices and new ways of leading that have yet to take hold.

  

Jacqueline Novogratz is the chief executive of the Acumen Fund which invests in businesses aiding the world’s poor. This interview was conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant.


This also goes with this quote by Arianna Huffington:  


"Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me."

  

Excerpts:

  

Jacqueline Novogratz's approach to leadership:

  

Leaders can get stuck in groupthink because they’re really not listening, or they’re listening only to what they want to listen to, or they actually think they’re so right there's no listening. 

  

__________________________________

    

Ask questions in a way that will elicit more nuanced answers...

__________________________________

   

The kind of leaders we need....are really open to listening to solutions from people who are most impacted by the problems.

  

I’ll often say at Acumen that you’ve got to learn to listen with your whole body.

  

Lean in and pay attention to their body language and their level of comfort or discomfort. Ask questions in a way that will elicit more nuanced answers, rather than the answers you would like to get.

 

Q. What kind of culture are you trying to foster at Acumen?

  

We are building companies, and so we have to be really accountable. We’ve got to be tough, and yet we have to be very generous, since we’re working in communities where people make a dollar or two dollars a day.

  

We talk about the power of listening and we juxtapose it with leadership, because sometimes you’ve listened enough, and now it’s time to make a decision.

   

We think about our values [as] a tension or a balance. We talk about listening and leadership; accountability and generosity; humility and audacity.

  

You’ve got to have the humility to see the world as it is …working with poor communities, that’s not easy to do — have the audacity to know why you are trying to make it be different, to imagine the way it could be. And then the immutable values are respect and integrity.


__________________________________
   
We’re building something no one has ever really built before, and so don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Let’s just make the decision to do something.

__________________________________   

 

Q. What are some other lessons you’ve learned about how to lead?

  

A. ...I have this mantra: Just start and let the work teach you. We’re building something no one has ever really built before, and so don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Let’s just make the decision to do something.

  

This goes back to audacity and humility. …If you start off talking about all the reasons that you’re not going to get there, you’re not going to get there. …It’s holding that balance of not being reckless, [and] having a huge element of fearlessness.

Curation: What Lauren has Learned, and How You Can Too

Curation: What Lauren has Learned, and How You Can Too | No(n)sense | Scoop.it

From the practice of curation, Lauren has learned "quite a bit" about finding and leveraging online tools, enabling her to extend her circle of web-based resources and connections. She also came to better understand how to share information effectively, as well as gauge the expectations and current interest in her topics on a broad scale.

 

Although her background isn't in media or marketing, Lauren has gained knowledge about both of these increasingly important topics which affect anyone with any type of online presence, regardless of one's field, background, or business. Lauren credits many of the excellent curators she follows on Scoop.it, along with the practice of curation itself, for this newfound knowledge.

 

That said, Lauren's advice for anyone hesitant to jump into curation is to try it out and curate a topic that is of genuine interest to you that relates to your particular area of expertise. If you have a passion for a subject, she says, it will be reflected in the responses and followers you receive. If you're looking to learn more about a subject you are less familiar with, Lauren recommends following some of the curators who are experts in the field and learn how they operate.

 

Here are a few tips from Lauren Moss for those starting out on Scoop.it:

* Follow like-minded people and see what they follow or rescoop; I've discovered several great topics as a result of visiting posts that have been rescooped by curators I already follow.
* This may seem obvious, but make sure to read the complete article you are scooping, and if necessary, fact-check to ensure that you are sharing correct and timely information.
* Create summaries that accurately reflect the main points of any given article, video, or link- consider adding why you are posting it, or insert an excerpt of the text for more specifics.
* Use photos that also reflect the main points of the post and add topic-specific keywords so your scoop can be found.
* Suggest relevant links to the topics you follow if you come across them- I always appreciate a good suggestion, and because someone took the time to share something of value with me, I will take a look at that individual's profile and potentially follow his or her topic(s).
* Use the Scoop.it bookmarklet to scoop articles from other online sources- it's a great tool that's very easy to use.
