Who owns the robots?

This is a "great response to Marc Andreesen's dismissal of technological unemployment", as +James Hughes notes. [1]

You seem to think everyone’s worried about robots. But what everyone’s worried about is you, Marc. Not just you, but people like you. Robots aren’t at the levers of financial and political influence today, but folks like you sure are. People are scared of so much wealth and control being in so few hands. Consequently, wherever you and other gatekeepers of capital direct your attention – towards robots, 3D printers, biotech, whatever – you’re going to detect a fearful response as people scramble to determine the impact of your decisions and whims.

While I didn’t jibe with your take on recent macroeconomic history, I was heartened to see that you’re interested in empowering individuals through technology: "[T]he current technology revolution has put the means of production within everyone’s grasp. It comes in the form of the smartphone (and tablet and PC) with a mobile broadband connection to the Internet."

If we’re gonna throw around Marxist terminology, though, can we at least keep Karl’s ideas intact? Workers prosper when they own the means of production. The factory owner gets rich. The line worker, not so much.

What is Fearlessly Questioning?

So I'm pretty excited to finally announce this new "thing" I've been working all summer on. 

If you couldn't tell from the recent rash of Google+ posts, it's called Fearlessly Questioning and the goal is to ask the toughest question to inspire the most change.

There are going to be a lot of moving parts in this new adventure and it's kind of hard to explain, that's why I went ahead and put this behind the scenes video together of some upcoming guests getting "fearlessly questioned" so you can see it in action for yourself.

We are going to kick things off in style next week with five live hangouts starting Monday, August 4th at 2:00 p.m.

I'll be talking with none other than The Sales Lion himself, +Marcus Sheridan to "Fearlessly Question Breaking the Rules."

The rest of the launch line-up looks like this...

Tue. Aug. 5th - 2:00 p.m. 
Fearlessly Questioning the Power of Connection with +Mia Voss 

Wed. Aug. 6th - 2:00 p.m. 
Fearlessly Questioning Action vs. Perfection with +Ryan Hanley 

Thur. Aug 7th - 2:00 p.m. 
Fearlessly Questioning Public Relations with +Gini Dietrich 

Fri. Aug 8th - 2:00 p.m. 
Fearlessly Questioning Generosity with +Tom Morkes 

And if that isn't enough, here's the first "regular" show after launch week.

Thur. Aug 14th - 2:00 p.m.
Fearlessly Questioning Growing Up (In Business & Life) with +Chris Brogan

You are going to have plenty of ways to dive in with this content as it will be a podcast, YouTube series and Live Hangout event, plus a few bonus surprises. 

More details will be coming out very soon and keep your eye open for your first real taste of content from these launch guests later this week. 

AND if that STILL isn't enough, take a look at the other upcoming Fearless Questioner's I've got lined up for you. 

+Dustin W. Stout 
+Mark Traphagen 
+John Jantsch 
+Wade Harman 
+Courtney Sullivan 
+Rebecca Livermore 
+Joy Groblebe 

...and many more.  
  
Get Access to their answers when they become available starting next Monday, August 4th: 

If you go check it out right now, you can hear Marcus' answer to "What fearless question he's been most afraid to ask in his own life and business and how he's working to answer it."

http://fearlesslyquestioning.com/coming-soon/

Special thanks to +Ryan Hanley for helping form the idea and +Dustin W. Stout for design work that is over-the-top attractive.

Stone Temple Consulting Updates Website

As a total marketing and #seonerd  I like to stay up to date on what industry leaders are doing. Checking up on one of my favorite blogs, written by +Eric Enge and +Mark Traphagen, I saw that they have given their site, stonetemple.com, a makeover and I have to say that I dig the new look. What I like about what +Stone Temple Consulting has done here is that they have maintained the functionality of their site yet updated what I consider to be key components of any Brand website:

1. A cleaner and more concise logo.
Not to knock the older version of their logo but it was a tad involved and in some formats it would just not look the way it was intended. Cutting out the the background elements and some of the filters on the font, as well as changing the background color in the header, has evolved an average logo to what is now a great logo.

2. They have put a face (faces) to the name.
The older version of the site's homepage was a bit too impersonal, which I think is a common problem among digital marketing companies.  The large format images of the team and of Eric do really well to establish a very human feeling to the brand. I would actually like to see them go a step farther (and they may already have plans to do this), but I would like to see individual headshots for each employee as well as an easy to follow link to each of their personal social media profiles, especially #googleplus . I am going to track them down to connect with them anyway, but it would have been nice to have been able to do it with one or two clicks.

3. They have replaced text with eye-catching visuals.
The old version of the site was very text heavy. At first glance your eye did not really know where to start. Even with the bulleted lists the reader can get a feeling of being bogged down. With the update, the text has been replaced with intuitive images that easily explain what the site is about within the first few seconds of viewing it. And it draws the viewer in, the row of icons along the bottom of the page really "pop" and give you the desire to click them. I mean... who doesn't like pretty buttons!

4. They have taken the book off the homepage.
Don't get me wrong the book (The Art of SEO) is great but it needs to have a home of its own either somewhere on this site or elsewhere. The old site, with the prominent placement of the book created a confusing message. Are they selling a book or are they selling digital marketing services? Do I need to hire them or can I just get away with buying this book and do it myself? I mean +Rand Fishkin is a co-author...

STC has really done a tremendous job establishing themselves as a thought leader in the #digitalmarketing  sphere and this forward step in #branding  just goes to show that they are an ever-evolving company.

What are your thoughts?

Ocho's Virtual Rap Battle

When +Julia Price challenged the Ocho world to take part in a rap battle, she wasn't sure what to expect. 

Minutes after the initial challenge went up (http://on.ocho.co/watch?v=UejVGIIWYb) her followers sprung into action. Some participants included +Jeri Stone wearing a pair of sweet aviators, +Matthew Zaffina coming to terms with his lack of rap knowledge, and even Plusser +Mark Traphagen wishing the streak of gorgeous weather in NC continues. Among many others!

We were thrilled with the result so we put together this video of all who participated..Enjoy!

Behind the beautiful architecture in Qatar lies the ugly slavery

Arab countries deserve a world cup, but who in the right mind will give a World Cup to these guys.

"Officials in Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy have been using offices on the 38th and 39th floors of Doha's landmark Al Bidda skyscraper – known as the Tower of Football – which were fitted out by men from Nepal, Sri Lanka and India who say they have not been paid for up to 13 months' work.

The project, a Guardian investigation shows, was directly commissioned by the Qatar government and the workers' plight is set to raise fresh doubts over the autocratic emirate's commitment to labour rights as construction starts this year on five new stadiums for the World Cup.

The offices, which cost £2.5m to fit out, feature expensive etched glass, handmade Italian furniture and even a heated executive toilet, project sources said. Yet some of the workers have not been paid, despite complaining to the Qatari authorities months ago and being owed wages as modest as £6 a day."

I heard legend of place with many potato. I went on long boat ride to search for magical potato land. I rode on horses - three of them, two die - to Riga. I avoid many soldier on way to shipyard. I sneak on rickety boat and hide under canvas sheet. Also under dead dog. 

Boat travels slowly for many days, and I have many sicks. Sicks mostly bile because of no food (except dog). But then - boat stop! I wait until is very quiet, and sneak off boat. 

What I see is beautiful land. Green grass and green hills. Things Latvian only dream of. There are animals that look like clouds with legs! Can you imagine? I follow these animals to farmhouse. I knock on door. Old man open.

"I am from Latvia. I heard legend of land with many potato. I come to find potato for family to live," I tell him.

He answer in very strange language I do not understand. It sound like English, but also like old man is gargle. I ask him repeat.

"T’ere aren’t any p’tatoes on t’is fair isle n’more. ‘aven’t yeh heard t’ere’s a famine here in Ireland?"

I walk back to dock and cry. I hide under dog and canvas and cry. I come back to Riga, still cry. I get home, out of tears. Also out of potato.

Two Spanish sisters run bakery in a desert

"The land in Los Monegros in Aragon in northeastern Spain, is almost as arid as a desert. In the 1960s, it was one of the backdrops chosen for spaghetti western films.

Yet for two twenty-something Spanish sisters, it has become the perfect place for their farming and bread-baking business."

Asteroid collision in Yucatan province killed off dinosaurs

Edinburg university researchers claim if it had struck earlier or later, the Dinosaurs would've survived. 

"If the asteroid didn't hit, I have no reason to believe they'd have gone extinct. There is a good chance they would still be with us today. And if dinosaurs didn't go extinct, then mammals would have never had their opportunity to blossom. So if it wasn't for that asteroid, then humans probably wouldn't be here. It's as simple as that,"

The Onion Poll: Should we let immigrate children who crossed the US border stay in America

Interesting poll :-)

No. If we need more kids, we should really be producing them domestically.

Yes, provided they all promise to live their lives with just a slight sense of inferiority.

Absolutely not. If they wanted to be Americans, they should have thought to immigrate between 1607 and 1930.

Of course. Then we should force them to stay after they realize the American Dream is an illusion.

No, unless I come across some sort of photo that may humanize them in any sort of way.

Only the ones who get on a bus, stretch their arms out the window, and attempt to touch their mother one last time while holding back tears.

Yes, but only if they’re carrying a Swede to maintain a nice racial balance.

No. If we show the bare minimum of compassion now, who’s to say it won’t be expected from us in the future?

Profiting from the misery of others. Examples: Healthcare providers, private prisons, defense industry.

There's a weird economic incentive to make sure that the suffering continues to ensure ongoing profits. It benefits the healthcare industry if people are sick, private prisons lobby for more aggressive sentencing, and defense industry... war is their bread and butter.

Glass in the Class Season 2 Finale: How Technology changes ANY Business Today

Still working on the banner... Will have it soon hopefully.

Youtube Live Event URL: http://youtu.be/HKOnQ6QRGY4 Here's the rundown: 

My classroom for 1 hour with my students.
3 perspectives: Google Glass, The computer camera, and the camera on my guest.
Discussing how communication and changing technology has affected the life/work of my guests.
And this time we'll be incorporating audience comments and questions!

So who are my guests speaking about changes in business today you ask?!

I am thrilled to announce the incredible panel I have lined up for this one hour special of Glass in the Class.

+Larry Fournillier: Caribbean chef, HOA host, and talent manager
+Jim Shankle: Incredible businessman, opportunity developer currently working with EBN
+Linda Hefferman: Local School Marketing Manager for School of Rock USA
+Yifat Cohen: G+ GoTo Gal and Hangout Host

As you can see this is quite the variety of individuals, each with a unique background in business. So it will be fascinating to learn how each sees technology changing communication and business today. If this panel doesn't finally convince my students of the importance of communication in our tech. immersed world today, I don't know what will!

Each person will have a unique perspective, but I also think each of my guests has one thing in common: They see the business world changing. For better or for worse our communication technologies are changing not only business relationships but relationships in general. So how do we adapt? How do we make sure we aren't left behind?

Well let's see what advice my savvy guests can offer.

Please ask questions in advance!

And if you share elsewhere please use the hashtag #GICKent  so we can keep track and incorporate them into the live broadcast!

As always I'd also like to thank +John Ellis for running my cameras for me and making everything look pretty!

What's That Big Moto Phone All About?

The substance of this rumor seems to be fairly weak, especially since some claim that the device is targeted towards U.S. carriers. This is perhaps more likely a "Silver" programme edition of some Droid-branded phone for Verizon, perhaps. However, codenames for Nexus phones tend to be sea creatures, which makes Shamu a potential release candidate - unless that tradition goes to Silver devices now also. This might explain the videos of oversized Moto devices popping up as rumored Moto X+1 phones.
