FORscene : world’s largest Cloud video post-production platform | SM | Scoop.it

Out of all the companies with industry-standard video editing apps, only Avid has managed to release a Cloud-based version – and this only recently. How is it that Forbidden Technologies has been able to get so far ahead in this space?

 

Many companies have tried to use a readily available web video streaming technology, such as MPEG, to base their editing system on. The eight year lead Forbidden has in its frame accurate cloud post-production platform shows just what an obstacle it is to try to fit together pieces designed to solve the wrong problem.

10 Sentiment Analysis Issues to Be Aware Of | SM | Scoop.it

Sentiment analysis’ popularity has grown exponentially in recent years and it is now being

Whether you’re monitoring social media in-house or using a specialized vendor to track your clients’ brands, below are ten issues to pay particular attention to:

 

1) Sarcasm

 

2) Navel gazing

 

3) Neutral sentiment

 

4) Relative sentiment

6) Conditional sentiment

10 Commandments of Twitter for Academics

10 Commandments of Twitter for Academics | SM | Scoop.it

Some ideas by Katrina Gulliver

 

"1. Put up an avatar. It doesn't really matter what the picture is, but the "egg picture" (the default avatar for new accounts) makes you look like a spammer.

2. Don't pick a Twitter name that is difficult to spell or remember.

3. Tweet regularly.

4. Don't ignore people who tweet at you. Set Twitter to send you an e-mail notification when you get a mention or a private message. If you don't do that, then check your account frequently.

5. Engage in conversation. Don't just drop in to post your own update and disappear. Twitter is not a "broadcast-only" mechanism; it's CB radio.

6. Learn the hashtags for your subject field or topics of interest, and use them.

7. Don't just make statements. Ask questions.

8. Don't just post links to news articles. I don't need you to be my aggregator.

9. Do show your personality. Crack some jokes.

10. Have fun."
