Google And Berg Team Up To Create An Internet Of Things

Google And Berg Team Up To Create An Internet Of Things | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it
Google is ridiculously powerful. The service isn’t just search. It isn’t just maps. It isn’t just your email or spreadsheets.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Berg, an amazing Ideo-like design consultancy, worked with Google to create a physical manifestation of something currently computer bound. Will we be using a Google lamp anytime soon? Stranger things have happened.

Using Scoopit For Personal Branding and Online Reputation Management (ORM)

Using Scoopit For Personal Branding and Online Reputation Management (ORM) | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it

I've been a Scoopiteer since Marc and Guilluame were kind enough to let me drive their very cool new car. Like many Internet marketers I have more and more content generating less and less control. 

The more content I add the more difficult it gets to keep up with. I've been wondering how to collect and watch my personal brand. Google Authorship has the promise of a collective personal "commons", but actually using authorship to help with such a practical application today feels remote.

Instead I've reorganized my Thank You feed for personal brand management. The mission is simple - create a single feed with the "best of" content from 5 blogs, 4 Twitter feeds, Google Plus, Storify, Facebook and Twitter. 

Think of the numbers. I create or curate over 50 posts a day and typically write at least 1,000 words. Translation: almost 400,000 words and 20,000 posts to keep up with each year. And I am by no means a PRO at this. Imagine what Michele Smorgon or Robin Good are managing (many multiples of Martin W. Smith). 

Scoop.it As Personal Branding ORM Solution
Scoopit can help. I changed all the sources to this feed (will rename it soon) to RSS feeds from the digital properties I contribute to regularly. I cleaned out ALL OTHER SOURCES. 

1. Change "Sources" To Feeds From Your Content.

I also changed the keywords to my name or social media synonyms such as @ScentTrail and @StoryofCancer.  These changes set up Scoopit so it watches my back, helps this feed curate from across time and many digital properties and catches reactions and content evolution. 

2. Change Keyords To Ones Relevant to You (your name, social names, etc.).

Is Compassion Missing From the Medical Curriculum?

Is Compassion Missing From the Medical Curriculum? | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it
As outlined in the Principles of Medical Ethics of the American Medical Association, physicians should demonstrate compassion and respect for human rights.

 

Compassion, empathy, and sympathy are emotions necessary in the delivery of ethical medical care.  However, in a healthcare environment that is moving toward being more technical and business-focused, it is becoming increasingly difficult for clinicians to balance the business of practicing medicine with the humanistic needs of their patients.

 

 

Kathleen Walsh Tulley, Editorial Director

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Healthcare Lacks Empathy & Compassion

I don't know if compassion is missing in Med School, but I can tell you hospitals SUCK at it. I've been a cancer patient for 11 years. I appreciate and am thankful for hard working doctors, nurses and administrators who've saved my life. 

But, I'm here to tell you hospitals SUCK at seeing me, my feelings, fears and needs. Social media provides a great example of the problem. I create content, share and talk about the James Cancer Center in Ohio all the time (as I am now). 

They've liked one of my posts (I think), never responded, never said THANK YOU and never followed me back. What exactly does the James Cancer Center team think social media is FOR anyway? My following DWARFS theres (nearing 80,000 now on 7 social nets), and yet in  the social world they continue to think of themselves as PAPA and me as annoying CHILD. 

 

I'm a James DONOR too and giving them MONEY was much like my experience with them on social media - as if giving them $1,000 was to be expected and didn't require THANKS, appreciation or other signs of "digital listening". 

Medicine is not used to being a conversation. We the lowly an stupid patients are to wait to be told what almighty docs are to do with our sorry asses. News Bulletin to hospital, you aren''t any SMARTER than anyone else you just know something we don't. 

Could my friends and I confuse, obfuscate and generally treat hospitals like crap when it comes to SEO, digital marketing and the stuff WE KNOW? You bet, but we have EMPATHY for those who are just learning about digital communication and branding NOW. We want to HELP instead of puff ourselves up into an unrealistic and unsustainable world of ONE. 

No one does ANYTHING alone anymore especially not medicine or climbing the Mt. Everest that is digital marketing. If Hospitals like the James want the army of Sherpas needed to climb today's Everest they need to walk and talk empathy and compassion on social media AND in the exam rooms (and don't get me started on that :).

Prada Marfa


Prada, Marfa

On my way home from visiting my 83-year-old father in Scottsdale for Christmas a storm stranded me in west Texas. The good news was I was only 50 miles from Marfa, Texas. Marfa is a beacon of art and creativity thanks to minimalist sculptor Donald Judd moving his airplane hangers of art to the desolate west Texas plains.


On a snowy Sunday, I drove the thirty miles from Van Horn, Texas to see the Prada Marfa art installation. The web marketing lesson is simple. Creat magic and people will find you. As I left, just after dawn, two cars pulled into the tiny alcove off of a two-lane state highway to take pictures of Prada Marfa.

Why It's So Difficult To Hire Great People

Why It's So Difficult To Hire Great People | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it
I believe I do some good work from time to time, but the one part of my job that I can't afford to not get right is the hiring part.I've been reading Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman on a recommendation from my friend and fellow neo-stoic-philosopher Jarrod Swart. The most interesting part of the book for me is the idea of substitution.Some questions are really hard, so our brains substitute an easier question that should approximate an answer that will be close enough. This happens with such cognitive ease, that we don't even recognize it. If you start paying close attention, you'll

Great question asked by my friend and Curagami co-founder Phil Buckley. I shared a comment about being interviewed with behavioral techniques - possibly the most effective interview I ever experienced. 

Interviews are two-way communications. My behavioral interview taught me a great deal about the company I would join and work for for 7 years too. In fact it was a company where I hired Phil, the post's author, to help.

3 Survival Stories From Martin's Ride To Cure Cancer on 5th Anniversary

3 Survival Stories From Martin's Ride To Cure Cancer on 5th Anniversary | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it

Martin’s Ride To Cure Cancer
Martin's Ride To Cure Cancer left the Duke Cancer Institute five years ago today. Little did we know what the next sixty days and 3,300 miles held for us. 

On this fifth anniversary seemed like a good idea to share three survival stories from Martin's Ride:

* Storm on the Grand Staircase.

* Drowning in Lake Topaz.
* Falling into CA 395.

We lived to tell these tales with a new appreciation of life's value and thread-like clinging quality. We hope you and your loved ones never need experience any of this because we've cured cancer in our lifetime.

What about you? Do you have great survival stories? Share 'em and we will curate into the post. Thanks, Marty

Knew I had to have the new paper thin, tiny and light MacBook the minute I saw it. I don't like typing on my phone. My 6+ is easier for "fat finger typing", but publishing and content curation tools are clunky (at best) non existent (at worst) so my laptop is my constant traveling companion.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Emotions & Self Talk
After hearing "cancer" and my name in the same sentence the need to "control" my emotions or learning to live in the present moment, be forgiving, and not be overwhelmed by emotions was the best prescription, a prescription to help save my life. 

I intuitively took many of the steps outlined here, so wish I'read this post five years ago. Doesn't mean I didn't learn new things today, new helpful things about keeping emotions from being overwhelming and staying in the game.

Here is part of the note I just left on Tim's excellent blog. Click the link to read the rest: 

Tim,
I learned painting from Alton Pickens at Vassar College. Alton preached several things on the list though not quite in those words. Sometimes he would SPEED UP our artistic decision making in an attempt to remove ego, judgement and bias (very difficult things to remove and can hinder creativity). "Slow decisions" may be discussing an artists need to THINK, REVIEW and CONTEMPLATE work created over time. TIME is a great editor.

Marty's Assistant: Now Hiring
I used Sweeps.jobs to find college students to help pack. I'm moving across Durham tomorrow. The experience got me thinking. Perhaps hiring an assistant is a good idea.

The linked G+ post shares details and where to apply. If you are interested in learning about the web #marketing and ecommerce apply to organize my life. I recognize the need for the kind of intelligent help who can be trusted to assume more and more. I also understand, within six months to a year, the "intern" I hire will need to fly the coop.

People who collaborate with me usually make 30% more in their next gig. 
 I'm not the reason for such a rising tide. The value of the #ecommerce  and#marketing  experiences I've been able to collect and am still creating is what makes a resume jump off the stack.

My "assistant" will be able to walk and talk
#seo , #contentmarketing , #socialmedia  and #startups  even if only partially listening.

Epic Personal Branding Now: Martin's Ride 5th Anniversary | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it
Suddenly it was time to leave. 


For six months most of what I'd done every day was ride a bicycle in preparation for a 3,300 mile journey west to Santa Monica. I woke early, rode thirty to fifty miles on the Tobacco trail near my Durham, NC home and then catch a nap, have a big middle of the day post-ride meal, read, write some and go to bed. Rinse and Repeat. Rinse and repeat for six months.


I rode a thousand miles before thinking I was ready to ride 3,300 miles. And it wasn't enough, not nearly enough as the Blue Ridge Parkway proved. "Martin," my mother told me when we stopped in Tennessee to se her,"you could get get to the Mississippi and stop since that is a big body of water". 

My mother was worried. But if we could make the mighty Mississippi we could make Santa Monica.

Did My Ancestors Meet The Wright Brothers? Maybe See 1903 Note

Did My Ancestors Meet The Wright Brothers? Maybe See 1903 Note | Personal Branding Using Scoopit | Scoop.it

Did My Ancestors Meet The Wright Brothers?
Turns out there is a better than good chance my great grandfather, Captain John Thomas Wescott may have known of or known Wilbur and Oriville Wright.

My great grandfather ran a "lifesaving station" on the North Carolina outer banks not far from Kill Devil Hills (where the Wright brothers flew for the first time).

I found an amazing 1903 note from my grandmother's sister Mary complaining about being so alone. This was two years before my grandmothers birth and the very year of the Wright Brothers first flight. The reason it is very possible is the outer banks then wasn't like they are now.

McCullough describes Kitty Hawk, NC as having 50 mostly down on their luck fisherman IN THE ENTIRE TOWN. Life was so hard, captured so beautifully by my grandmother's 12 year-old sister, few WANTED or could handle living there. Not so much now (lol), but kudos to McCullough's great book, the Wright Brothers for having the right stuff and Captain John Thomas Wescott and family for the courage to place their lives in service to others.

Too Good!

So even if Captain John T never met the Wright brothers he was still a pretty amazing man. Serendipity is strange. I live about a mile from Captain John's grave. Too strange :). M
