The news we can afford. I want to see news organizations grow again.
But first, they must finish shrinking. They must decide what they can afford to be. That is what is happening with Advance reducing publication schedules and resources in New Orleans and other of its markets. That is what happening with Journal Register as it declares bankruptcy to restructure its liabilities given present reality. I recommend you read Josh Benton’s and Rick Edmonds’ analyses of this latest business move. Now please take what I say here not just with a grain of salt but with a salt lick as I advise both Journal Register and Advance, where I also worked for a dozen years. Of course, there is not one answer to the question of what they can afford.
These are hard decisions with difficult consequences for many people. I do believe that newspapers, rethought, can be sustainable — that is, profitable. But all that gets us is survival. None of this is easy. Mass. governor, MIT announce big data initiative. BOSTON—The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Gov.
Deval Patrick and industry officials announced Wednesday that they will be tackling big data research in an effort to add jobs and increase innovation in the state. MIT President Susan Hockfield joined Patrick, chief technology officer and others to discuss three major big data initiatives. Chief among the initiatives is MIT's new big data research center, known as bigdata(at)CSAIL, which will be run out of the school's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The center will focus on data collections that are too big for current information technology systems and will call on industry, government and academic leaders to develop techniques to process, share, store and manage the large amount of data. Sam Madden, the director of the research center, said the program will aim to solve the next generation of data processing challenges. The center will also conduct big data research for the Santa Clara, Calif. Logiciel CRM / GRC , Gestion de la Relation Client.

Compete. Quantcast. Six Social Media Trends for 2012 - David Armano. By David Armano | 10:25 AM December 12, 2011 Each year at this time, I look forward and predict trends in social media for the coming year.
But first, I look back at my predictions from last year. How’d I do? Not bad. Social media continues to move forward toward business integration, a trend that I identified last year. I was also partially accurate in predicting that Google would “strike back” in 2011. I had one big swing-and-miss on Facebook’s intrusion in the location-based services war. So what can we expect in 2012 in a world that seems to grow ever connected by the hour? Convergence Emergence.

Do you know the process your customers take to buy and connect with you?
Their journey is often filled with many steps, stops and starts. What you do to help them along the way makes all the difference in gaining a competitive foothold. Taking action to improve the experiences your customers have within that journey can convert them from shoppers to customers, and then to advocates. Too often customers don’t ask for what they want, and rarely do they behave in the way you expect them to; however, they are telling others directly in social media. Taking a walk in your customer’s shoes isn’t necessarily a walk in the park, but it can provide a rich and contextual view into exactly where the customer is in their journey. Taking this view of your customer’s world lets you make better informed and faster decisions about value propositions, brand strategies, and, more importantly, how to engage customers.
