12 Epic Quotes From Terry Pratchett

12 Epic Quotes From Terry Pratchett | Smith7698 | Scoop.it

1. Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.

 

2. The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

 

3. It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It’s called living.

 

4. He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armor shouting ‘All the Gods are bastards.’

 

5. It’s not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewere, would much rather you weren’t doing.

 

6. In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

 

7. Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying ‘End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH’, the paint wouldn’t even have time to dry.

 

8. I’ll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there’s evidence of any thinking going on inside it.

 

9. I’d rather be a rising ape than a falling angel.

 

10. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.

 

11. He’d been wrong, there was a light at the end of the tunnel, and it was a flamethrower.

 

12. Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.

Everything You Need to Know About Social Media Command Centers | Smith7698 | Scoop.it
A social media command center is a dedicated area where a company can monitor and engage in social conversation around their brand and market.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Andrew Smith's insight:

Companies always need to remember that Social Media centres need to keep focused upon the need to create dynamic content to engage. If they are spending most of their time answering customer service issues regarding their brands then focus needs to centred on correcting those service issues and then concentrate on generating new news.

Very interesting read.  I took the time to download the Clemson pdf, sign of things to come...

 

From the article:

 

What are some uses of social media command centers?

 

~Connect with key decision makers. Dell uses their command center to connect with IT leaders to uncover helpful information in order to better understand customers.

 

~Give executives an at-a-glance look at the social health of your brand. Cisco installed a 2-screen kiosk in front of their CEO and CMO’s offices so company leaders can keep one eye on the brand.

 

~Stay connected. Clemson University’s command center was used by student researchers to monitor conversations about academics, NCAA athletics, alumni and student activities, and community programs.

 

~Serve as the platform for your crisis communications plan. American Red Cross staff and digital volunteers listen to online conversations, interacting directly with people who need help or have questions.

 

~Inform content strategy and development. Edelman Digital is the interactive arm of the world’s largest independently-owned public relations firm. They’ve set up their own Social Intelligence Command Center (SICC), which monitors the social web to gather data for many activities, including content strategy and development.

interesting, not sure how many would have the luxury to have such center. it has to be tied to a more traditional corporate management function to justify setting one up, probably.
