Deborah Schultz: World and Web - not as connected as we think Over on the Tummelvision podcast we chat weekly with a broad swath of people on the intersection of technology, culture and business. Our conversations often reflect the participatory nature of - well - everything. How our current hyper-connected-always-on world demands and drives interaction. This is forcing a new focus on the skills and tools that are needed to manage and succeed in this environment -personally, socially, economically and artistically.

With more places to share content on more networks, each having their own diverse social graphs, connections and features, many of us are splintering our online identities, choosing one or a few communities over others, and optimizing our sharing and consumption to fit the model that best works for us - and that self-assessment should be constantly changing as our own preferences, and those sites' capabilities change. But what will never change is people's desire to feel important and interesting, whether they are creators, sharers, commenters or even lurkers. As I've seen time and time again, people often measure a site's "success" for them by how much attention they receive, and if this attention fades, so too does their opinion of that community. Despite significant attempts at automation, people continue to be human, and thus, emotion is involved. Social Me Me Me Me Me Media Social Me Me Me Me Me Media
SExpand Chrome: The Chrome to iPhone extension adds a handy button to your Google Chrome toolbar that, when clicked, quickly shares your current URL between your desktop browser and iOS device. The extension attempts to mimic the functionality of the even better Chrome to Phone extension for Android devices, and for the most part, it does a pretty good job.

You’ll see the count in the post check-in screen when you check into a place.
Google continues social buying spree with Angstro Google just revealed its latest social networking acquisition — a startup called Angstro, which builds applications pulling useful information from social networks. The news was announced last night on the Angstro blog, with cofounder Rohit Khare writing, “While our work here may be done, the struggle for open, interoperable social networks is still only just beginning, and I’m looking forward to working on that in my new role at Google.” Angtro says its products include “apps to discover hot new photos on Facebook, improve Caller ID by using LinkedIn profiles, [add] style and links to Twitter, and create a real-time social address book.” Citing a person familiar with the situation, the Los Angeles Times reported this morning that Khare was convinced to join Google because of vice president of engineering Vic Gundotra’s commitment to social networking.

Google’s long awaited Google TV platform is getting closer to a consumer launch, and last week Sony sets running the platform were shown at the IFA show in Berlin. The demoed Google TV platform includes apps, Google Chrome and picture in picture. Sony Bravia’s running Google TV are set for release in November in the United States, with the rest of the world to follow some time thereafter. No word yet if recent models running Bravia Internet TV might be made retrospectively compatible, though as someone who purchased one this year I’m crossing my fingers.

It seems like only yesterday that Oracle announced it was hiring former HP CEO Mark Hurd to be a Co-President and member of the Board — that’s because it was just yesterday. And now just one day later, we have a lawsuit filed by HP to block such a maneuver by Oracle. In confirming the lawsuit in a brief blog post today, HP’s official corporate blog highlights what they see as the key issue here: trade secrets and confidential information.

Google's Color-Changing Logo and What the Company Is About to Announce Google's Color-Changing Logo and What the Company Is About to Announce The Google homepage is sporting a new logo that changes color as you type, and it's likely a big hint as to what the company will announce at its "can't miss" search event on Wednesday. When you arrive on the search giant homepage today, you'll be greeted with a gray Google doodle. When you start typing a search query though, the color magically returns to Google's iconic logo. This follows yesterday's logo, a collection of animated particles that react to the movement of the cursor.
This Is How a Heavy Storm Looks Inside a Cruise Liner You would really think that this kind of thing would have been thought of on a cruise ship. I mean.. anchor the furniture or at least put a carpeting in under the tables so stuff doesn't slide every where. I understand that people don't really think of 25 foot tall waves when they are designing the interior of ship's lounge, but honestly we have thousands of years of naval history to look back on when building these ships. In the service area as well. I mean there is absolutely no reason that that forklift at the very least shouldn't have been chained down, even if they weren't expecting a storm.
