Our lesson for today comes from George and Ira Gershwin: They all laughed at Christopher Columbus When he said the world was round They all laughed when Edison recorded sound They all laughed at Wilbur and his brother When they said that man could fly They told Marconi wireless was a phony . . .
Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers sang it in the film Shall We Dance? (1937). Seventy-five years on, the president revived it to tap dance around his rising gas prices and falling approval numbers. Delivering his big speech on energy at Prince George’s Community College, he insisted the American economy will be going gangbusters again just as soon as we start running it on algae and windmills. Let me tell you something. The crowd loved it. There always have been folks who are the naysayers and don’t believe in the future, and don’t believe in trying to do things differently. It fell to Nan Card of the Rutherford B. But obviously Rutherford B. Fossil Fuel Production on Federal Lands Sinks to Nine-Year Low. Last fall the U.S. government’s Energy Information Administration reported a 40 percent decline in oil and natural gas production on federal lands compared to 10 years ago.
The White House and a prominent liberal in Congress protested. They said EIA, a trusted source for reliable energy information, was wrong. They complained that EIA hadn’t accounted for all data from the Department of Interior. EIA released an updated analysis last week. And while the number isn’t as drastic as originally reported, EIA confirmed the Obama administration is overseeing a sharp decline in fossil fuel production (coal, oil, and natural gas) on federal lands, which recently hit its lowest point in nine years.

A wide variety of companies are building and using it in really diverse ways. YourVersion offers a real-time discovery engine for finding streams of content about topics you're interested in. Aardvark is using friends of friends networks, profile data built up over time and presence information ("the real-time web of people") to deliver answers to almost any question you can ask it. Kaazing uses HTML5 WebSockets to open secure, persistent connections to push data and allow financial institutions to use web interfaces instead of installed software, often for the first time.
Those are just three of the many different companies on the cutting edge of the real-time web. Because this field is so new and is seeing such breadth of innovation, people have a lot of questions about it. These are not the kind of questions you can get answers for by having a media pundit interview the CEO of a company on stage. First Night With Google Plus: This is Very Cool. I thought I'd type up some notes after an evening of using Google's new social network, Google Plus.
This is a really big deal, a super ambitious effort involving scores of engineers over months of near total secrecy. (Though some helpful sources and I scooped the core Circles part of all this three months ago.) The service is really, really well done. Will it be good enough? I have no idea, but I have felt drawn to keep using it all night long. The fundamental value proposition is around privacy: it's the opposite of Facebook and Twitter's universal broadcast paradigm. Can Google’s Plus One Take On The Facebook Like? This morning Google announced a social bombshell, a new service called +1 that competes directly with the Facebook like button as a signal for determining what content is most relevant to an individual.
Fortunately for Google, it has the world’s largest search engine to integrate this product with immediately, giving publishers a significant reason to implement +1 within their sites. Google accounts for more than 50 percent of incoming traffic on most sites, while Facebook is currently running a distant second in referring traffic (more then 10 percent of our own traffic comes from Facebook). For now, the new product is being offered as an experimental service, although there’s no doubt the company plans on making it a widespread feature. Why Google Plus is a Big Minus for Investors - Adam Hartung - Growth - Dealing with Market Shifts. Walking Around In Circles: As Google+ Opens Up Will People Start Using It Correctly?
Last night, I wrote up my initial thoughts on Google+ after using it for a day.
Overall, I find it pretty compelling so far. While there is a bit of a learning curve, after about 15 minutes, I found myself at home using the service. And little things (namely notifications) kept bringing me back. But let’s be realistic, it has only been a day. The new car smell has yet to wear off. Right now, almost every single post I see on Google+ is shared with the Public.
But tonight, Google started dishing out invites for early users to spread around as they see fit. Google+ Welcome to Google Enterprise: Earth Pro. The Consumerist.
