With New Anonymous Social App Secret, the Merit Is in the Message | Re/Code.net

With New Anonymous Social App Secret, the Merit Is in the Message | Re/Code.net | Humanities | Scoop.it

What if you could share anything you wanted to, with little worry of repercussion?

 

Maybe you’d talk about a fear you have, or some terrible wrong you’ve done someone. Or perhaps you’d admit to some infidelity that’s been eating away at you for ages.

 

These are all things I’ve seen while testing Secret, a new iPhone app that aims to bring a sense of anonymity to sharing within a network of friends.

 

The brainchild of former Square and Google employees David Byttow and Chrys Bader, Secret’s concept looks fairly simple at first: Based on the contacts in your mobile phonebook, you’re plugged into a network without establishing an identity or even a static username up front, and asked to share any and everything to that network. While initially you’re only communicating with friends, those secrets slowly trickle out to others depending on whether or not your friends have interacted with your posts.

 

It’s centered around the vertical feed (like today’s most popular social apps), where posts are composed primarily of text with a photo or pre-loaded texture background. Everything is intentionally kept simple — the content of the secret is what’s pushed to the forefront.

The grand idea behind this: Once partially divorced from identity, we’re able to be more open with sharing whatever things we want to share. Though since you’re still connected to your network of contacts, ideally you’re less inhibited to tell your friends and acquaintances what you really think.

 

In theory, that sort of thinking is similar to a platform like Twitter, where tweets and ideas flow ceaselessly and anonymous usernames are possible. (It’s also very close to Whisper, though constrained to your network of contacts rather than open to all.) But Byttow and Bader maintain that Secret is free from some of Twitter’s social hierarchies. Whether a secret gets lots of comments, “hearts” and attention doesn’t depend on who the sharer is, but rather the content of the message itself.

Google Hangout for Teachers- A Comprehensive Tutorial | Humanities | Scoop.it
Google Hangout is an excellent service that enables both one-on-one and group chats with up to ten people at a time.Google Hangouts are not all video based. You can hold a hangout using only the textual chat functionality or you can add voice. There is also another great feature called hangout on Air. A Hangout on the Air is a Google hangout that is broadcast both on YouTube both through your Google+ page . It’s a great way to have a “public” event or get more people involved in the conversation!

Learning the smell of fear: Mothers teach babies their own fears via odor, animal study shows

Learning the smell of fear: Mothers teach babies their own fears via odor, animal study shows | Humanities | Scoop.it
Babies can learn what to fear in the first days of life just by smelling the odor of their distressed mothers, new research suggests. And not just "natural" fears: If a mother experienced something before pregnancy that made her fear something specific, her baby will quickly learn to fear it too -- through the odor she gives off when she feels fear.In the first direct observation of this kind of fear transmission, a team of University of Michigan Medical School and New York University studied mother rats who had learned to fear the smell of peppermint -- and showed how they "taught" this fear to their babies in their first days of life through their alarm odor released during distress.In a new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team reports how they pinpointed the specific area of the brain where this fear transmission takes root in the earliest days of life.Their findings in animals may help explain a phenomenon that has puzzled mental health experts for generations: how a mother's traumatic experience can affect her children in profound ways, even when it happened long before they were born.The researchers also hope their work will lead to better understanding of why not all children of traumatized mothers, or of mothers with major phobias, other anxiety disorders or major depression, experience the same effects."During the early days of an infant rat's life, they are immune to learning information about environmental dangers. But if their mother is the source of threat information, we have shown they can learn from her and produce lasting memories," says Jacek Debiec, M.D., Ph.D., the U-M psychiatrist and neuroscientist who led the research."Our research demonstrates that infants can learn from maternal expression of fear, very early in life," he adds. "Before they can even make their own experiences, they basically acquire their mothers' experiences. Most importantly, these maternally-transmitted memories are long-lived, whereas other types of infant learning, if not repeated, rapidly perish."

Tactile CEO Chuck Ganapathi, a former Salesforce executive, aims to simplify enterprise software the same way Dropbox and iCloud did for consumer storage.

 

Today, enterprise software startup Tactile officially launched Tact, a free iOS app for sales professionals that syncs data from email, LinkedIn, and Salesforce. Rather than bouncing around between all those different repositories, salespeople can use Tact as a central, mobile hub to manage their relationships with leads and customers.

In-car heads-up display lets you respond to texts with hand motions and voice

In-car heads-up display lets you respond to texts with hand motions and voice | Humanities | Scoop.it
We've seen companies take a few stabs at smartphone-savvy heads-up displays for cars, but they tend to be one-way devices -- while they'll feed you info, you still have to reach for your phone to answer a message or get directions. Navdy may just have a smarter solution in store. Its namesake HUD not only projects car stats, navigation and notifications, but lets you interact with them through a blend of gestures and speech. You swipe with your fingers to either respond to or dismiss any alert that comes in; the system leans on the built-in voice commands from Android and iOS, so you can tell Navdy to get directions in Google Maps or play iTunes music as if you were speaking to the phone itself.Navdy announced on 8/5/2014 a Head­Up Display (HUD) aftermarket car console that allows drivers to access their smartphone’s apps while keeping their eyes on the road. Navdy combines a high quality projection display with voice and gesture controls to create a safer, highly intuitive driving experience. Combining advanced display technology with touch­less controls means drivers no longer need to fumble around with their phone to navigate, communicate or control their music. Navdy's display technology projects a bright transparent image directly within your field of vision that appears to float six feet in front of your windshield, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road while simultaneously seeing navigation instructions or incoming phone calls. The device comes with advanced dimming and stabilization controls, to optimize usability in any driving conditions.Due to voice and gesture controls, you’ll never need to look away from the road to use Navdy. Your app’s simplified Navdy menus can be navigated with intuitive hand gestures. Voice recognition captures more complex commands and text message responses. Navdy’s noise cancellation and wide angle gesture sensors are specifically designed to create an optical driving experience.The device mounts on a flexible footer that fits on practically any car dashboard, and is powered by plugging in to the onboard computer (OBD II port), available in all cars produced since 1996. This makes the only required cord less intrusive, while providing car status information to the Navdy processor.Navdy works with popular navigation apps like Google Maps to display turn­by­turn directions; it controls your music apps like Spotify, Pandora, or Google Music; it reads or displays notifications from text messages or social media apps, fully controlled by its Parental Control settings; and it displays car alerts such as true­speed, miles­to­empty, or battery­voltage from its access to the car’s computer.Navdy works with iPhone (iOS 7+) and Android (4.3+) smartphones, and can move easily to another car or another smartphone. Once a Navdy has been paired over bluetooth for the first time, it can share data with your phone over wifi. Navdy does not require it’s own data subscription service. Initial device dashboard placement takes 60­90 seconds. Slightly longer if you read instructions.The company is getting its display off the ground through crowdfunding. If you're willing to commit within the first 30 days, you can pay $299 for a Navdy unit instead of the $499 it will cost when it ships in early 2015.
