What if we mapped cities by how hard it is to get to work? | Washington Post | social media optimization | Scoop.it

Open data is making it easier to understand how transportation connects us to everything from jobs to schools to health care.

 

We tend to talk about transportation as if the ultimate goal were mere movement, measured in speed, time and capacity. We build roads to carry as many cars as quickly as possible (safely, that is). We measure a highway's rush-hour performance in miles per hour. We assess public transit by how many passengers ride a subway system, or how quickly buses travel through town.

 

The ultimate goal of transportation, though, isn't really to move us. It's to connect us -- to jobs, to schools, to the supermarket. And recognizing this means viewing transportation in a slightly different way. ...

Six ways to design humanity and localism into Smart Cities | Urban Technologist

Six ways to design humanity and localism into Smart Cities | Urban Technologist | social media optimization | Scoop.it

The Smart Cities movement is sometimes criticised for appearing to focus mainly on the application of technology to large-scale city infrastructures such as smart energy grids and intelligent transportation....  

 

But to focus too much on this aspect of Smart Cities and to overlook the social needs of cities and communities risks forgetting what the full purpose of cities is: to enable a huge number of individual citizens to live not just safe, but rewarding lives with their families ...

MIAMI—(Feb. 19, 2014)—The practice of “Lean Urbanism,” which seeks to accelerate city revitalization by helping citizens and entrepreneurs work around cumbersome regulations, will receive a boost with a $600,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The grant will go to the Center for Applied Transect Studies, led by Andrés Duany, a founder of the Congress for the New Urbanism, an organization that promotes communities that are compact, walkable, transit-oriented and mixed-use.

The Rise and Fall and Eventual Rise Again of the 'Smart City' | Atlantic Cities

The Rise and Fall and Eventual Rise Again of the 'Smart City' | Atlantic Cities | social media optimization | Scoop.it

It would have been hard to miss the messaging over the last five years: Major global tech firms like IBM, Cisco, and Siemens seemingly all adopted the same "smart cities" mission at the same time. And they weren't alone. Across the globe, technology companies of all sizes have taken aim at the burgeoning smart city market, a nebulous term that can include anything from complex networks of government-controlled sensors and cameras to a parking meter that sends you a text message when you run out of time on the meter.

 

For Anthony Townsend, research director at the Palo Alto-based Institute for the Future and an adjunct assistant professor of planning at NYU Wagner, the rise of the "smart city" concept is both the result of global economic forces and the culmination of decades of technological progress. But with his new book Smart Cities, Townsend also sounds the alarm that the real "smart" city of the future can't and shouldn't merely be a reflection of what large technology companies would like to sell to local governments. Recently we chatted with Townsend about his research and current work on smart cities. ...

Twitter can be a valuable marketing tool, when used the right way. First it's important not to let Twitter manage your life; only 1.5% of your day should be spent tweeting or scheduling tweets, which adds up to less than two hours each week.

The Blueprint for a Real Content Marketing Plan - ClickZ | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

The Blueprint for a Real Content Marketing Plan - ClickZ | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | social media optimization | Scoop.it
Aaron Kahlow shares his cliff notes, down and dirty version of a content marketing blueprint, with everything important for content marketing in 2014.

 

Basic/ Digest...

 

Get to Know Your Audience

Reevaluate who you are targeting, what they are doing and their personal and professional motivations, likes/dislikes and areas of interest.

 

Tie in Buying Cycle

Next, tie in their role in the buying cycle. Do they search for solutions/products like yours, or does one of their folks hand them the short list of offerings?

 

Audit Your Content Assets

What do you have by way of blog posts, webcasts, power points, videos, testimonials, ebooks, whitepapers, etc.? Determine which are really evergreen and which could be tweaked to be more relevant today.

 

SWOT

Next, start mapping content types back to your personas and do a quick Gap Analysis on the areas of interest and stages of the buying cycle that are missing and what are most important.

 

Plan Your Content

Finally, create the calendar and ownership of when and who will create this content. Much can be outsourced, curated or partnered with, so it does not all need to come from within the organization.

 

Social Sharing & Distribution

After this is all done (and yes, it's a bit more complex than above), it's time to distribute the content. Social media is a great place to start, so begin by thinking about what content is best for what channel.

 

Ads & Retargeting

After you get your social integration strategy in place, start thinking about re-targeted ads on Google Display and YouTube.

 

Measurement & Attribution

Don't forget the tracking! Attribution and attribution modeling for social media and all other channels is critical.

Twahpic: Twitter topic modeling 

"Twahpic" shows what tweets on Twitter™ are about in terms of both topics (like sports, politics, Internet, etc) and axes of Substance, Social, Status, and Style. Twahpic uses Partially Labeled Latent Dirichlet Analysis (PLDA) to identify 200 topics used on Twitter.

30 July 2013: The demo is currently unavailable. However, you can see some sample output from real queries.

 

Status: tweets for this query had many terms related to status updates (going places)Substance: tweets for these queries had many terms related to specific entities and events (making money, news)Style: this query's tweets use particular linguistic style conventions (example)Social: this query's tweets are all about "where the party's at" (example)Mixture: this query has an even mix of substance - sports, particularly - and style.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, December 19, 2013 3:51 AM

A useful summary of the current shortcomings in content curation tools and services, and what we features and innovations we might see in this developing market. From the author:

 

"In the near future it is likely that new content curation tools will provide more dedicated features for specific application and uses while becoming more aware of user needs that so far have not been taken into serious consideration (attribution, archiving, monetizing).

While large content curation hubs and platforms are likely to start realizing that their best value yet to be extracted is in the content being curated by their users, new tools will likely target more specific and professional uses rather than the general public needing simply to collect and repost content on their blog or social media channel."

Critique of interfaces to the smart city | Words in Space

Critique of interfaces to the smart city | Words in Space | social media optimization | Scoop.it

I’m writing a new piece for Places on “interfaces to the smart city” — or points of human contact with the “urban operating system.” As I explained to the editors,

I’d like to consider these urban interfaces‘ IxD — with outputs including maps, data visualizations, photos, sounds, etc.; and inputs ranging from GUIs and touchscreens to voice and gestural interfaces — and how that interactive experience both reflects and informs urban dwellers’ relationships to their cities (and obfuscates some aspects of the city), and shapes their identities as urban “subjects.” I’m particularly interested in our single-minded focus on *screens*: are there other, non-”glowing rectangle” / “pictures under glass“-oriented platforms we can use to mediate our experiences of our cities? ...

What's the Difference Between Social Listening, Analytics and Intelligence? | social media optimization | Scoop.it

Social listening, social analytics and social intelligence. It’s all the same, right?

 

Well … not quite. We were asked this very question on Twitter, so we thought it worth writing an explanation for all to read.

 

Firstly, no, technically, the terms don’t mean the same thing. However, they are often used interchangeably to discuss activities related to social media monitoring (that’s what we do!)

 

Even more confusingly, whilst they are often used to mean the same thing, they are also used differently by different people and companies within the industry.

 

Here’s an explanation of the differences, and how each term is frequently used: http://www.brandwatch.com/2013/08/whats-the-difference-between-social-analytics/
