The Temple Rises at ปราสาทสัจธรรม

I just visited this rather AMAZING temple here in Thailand. I actually have a few more photos of it over at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/macphun-review/ (where I am starting to piece together a MacPhun review as well). This is called Wang Boran. After I got down through the trees to explore more, I was completely shocked at this place. Wow...

College graduate creates a man-made leaf could help us breathe in space.

Whoa!

Royal College of Art graduate Julian Melchiorri has created the first man-made, biologically functional leaf that takes in carbon dioxide, water, and light and releases oxygen. The leaf consists of chloroplasts -- the part of a plant cell where photosynthesis happens -- suspended in body made of silk protein.

Watch the video. It's quite amazing!

Huge 'Fake ID' flaw hits Android!

A recently discovered Android flaw leaves phones exposed to malware and personal data theft. It’s called the “Fake ID” flaw. It was discovered by BlueBox Labs, which notified Google in advance -- and Google has already patched it, both to Android Partners and also to the Android Open Source Project. However, Android phones running older versions of Android are still at risk.

Son of Hamas - “Hamas does not care about the lives of Palestinians, does not care about the lives of Israelis or Americans,”

I'm listening to this interview of the son of Hamas founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef by CNN, and the first thing that comes to mind is the poem by Martin Niemöller:

_First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out - 
Because I was not a Socialist._

_Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out - 
Because I was not a Trade Unionist._

_Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out - 
Because I was not a Jew._

Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me.

Hamas’s “final destination” goes beyond just the destruction of Israel. Ultimately, Hamas aims to help create an Islamic caliphate “on the rubble of any other civilization.

Any. Other. Civilization.

If you don't speak for Israel now, who will be left to speak for you?

When Web Experiments Violate User Trust, We're All Victims

http://lauren.vortex.com/archive/001078.html

If you ever wonder why it seems like politicians around the world appear to have decided that their political futures are best served by imposing all manner of free speech restrictions, censorship, and content controls on Web services, one might be well served by examining the extent to which Internet users feel that they've been mistreated and lied to by some services -- how their trust in those services has been undermined by abusive experiments that would not likely be tolerated in other aspects of our lives.

To be sure, all experiments are definitely not created equal. Most Web service providers run experiments of one sort or another, and the vast majority are both justifiable and harmless. Showing some customers a different version of a user interface, for example, does not risk real harm to users, and the same could be said for most experiments that are aimed at improving site performance and results.

But when sites outright lie to you about things you care about, and that you have expected those sites to provide to you honestly, that's a wholly different story, indeed -- and that applies whether or not you're paying fees for the services involved, and whether or not users are ever informed later about these shenanigans. Nor do "research use of data" clauses buried in voluminous Terms of Service text constitute informed consent or some sort of ethical exception.

You'll likely recall the recent furor over revelations about Facebook experiments -- in conjunction with outside experimenters -- that artificially distorted the feed streams of selected users in an effort to impact their emotions, e.g., show them more negative items than normal, and see if they'll become depressed.

When belated news of this experiment became known, there was widespread and much deserved criticism. Facebook and experimenters issued some half-hearted "sort of" apologies, mostly suggesting that anyone who was concerned just "didn't understand" the point of the experiment. You know the philosophy: "Users are just stupid losers!" ...

Now comes word that online dating site OkCupid has been engaging in its own campaign of lying to users in the guise of experiments.

In OkCupid's case, this revelation comes not in the form of an apology at all, but rather in a snarky, fetid posting by one of their principals, which also includes a pitch urging readers to purchase the author's book.

OkCupid apparently performed a range of experiments on users -- some of the harmless variety. But one in particular fell squarely into the Big Lie septic tank, involving lying to selected users by claiming that very low compatibility scores were actually extremely high scores. Then OkCupid sat back and gleefully watched the fun like teenagers peering through a keyhole into a bedroom.

Now of course, OkCupid had their "data based" excuse for this. By their claimed reckoning, their algorithm was basically so inept in the first place that the only way their could calibrate it was by providing some users enormously inflated results to see how they'd behave, then studying this data against control groups who got honest results from the algorithm.

Sorry boy wonders, but that story would get you kicked out of Ethics 101 with a tattoo on your forehead that reads "Never let me near a computer again, please!"

Really, this is pretty simple stuff. It doesn't take a course in comparative ethics to figure out when an experiment is harmless and when it's abusive.

Many apologists for these abusive antics are well practiced in the art of conflation -- that is, trying to confuse the issue by making invalid comparisons.

So, you'll get the "everybody does experiments" line -- which is true enough, but as noted above, the vast majority of experiments are harmless and do not involve lying to your users.

Or we'll hear "this is the same things advertisers try to do -- they're always playing with our emotions." Certainly advertisers do their utmost to influence us, but there's a big difference from the cases under discussion here. We don't usually have a pre-existing trust relationship with those advertisers of the sort we have with Web services that we use every day, and that we expect to provide us with honest results, honest answers, and honest data to the best of their ability.

And naturally there's also the refrain that "these are very small differences that are often hard to even measure, and aren't important anyway, so what's the big deal?"

But from an ethical standpoint the magnitude of effects is essentially irrelevant. The issue is your willingness to lie to your users and purposely distort data in the first place -- when your users expect you to provide the most accurate data that you can.

The saddest part though is how this all poisons the well of trust generally, and causes users to wonder when they're next being lied to or manipulated by purposely skewed or altered data. 

Loss of trust in this way can have lethal consequences. Already, we've seen how a relatively small number of research ethical lapses in the medical community have triggered knee-jerk legislative efforts to restrict legitimate research access to genetic and disease data -- laws that could cost many lives as critical research is stalled and otherwise stymied. And underlying this (much as in the case of anti-Internet legislation we noted earlier) is politicians' willingness to play up to people's fears and confusion -- and their loss of trust -- in ways that ultimately may be very damaging to society at large.

Trust is a fundamental aspect of our lives, both on the Net and off. Once lost, it can be impossible to ever restore to former levels. The damage is often permanent, and can ultimately be many orders of magnitude more devastating than the events that may initially trigger a user trust crisis itself.

Perhaps something to remember, the next time you're considering lying to your users in the name of experimentation. 

Trust me on this one.

Collaborative Sensemaking: Wicked Problems

"Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you!"
-- Dennis
Constitutional Peasants - Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Multi-dimensional Dynamic Framework
Social emerges out of:
- inclusivity
- intelligence
- interaction
- individual agency
- inference
- information
- insights
- interdependence

Wicked Problem
"It is hard to say what the problem is, to define it clearly or to tell where it stops and starts. There is no “right” way to view the problem, no definitive formulation. There are many stakeholders, all with their own frames, which they tend to see as exclusively correct. Ask what the problem is and you will get a different answer from each. Someone can always say that the problem is just a symptom of another problem and that someone will not be wrong. The problem is inter-connected to a lot of other problems; pulling them apart is almost impossible. In a word: it’s a mess.

But it gets worse. Every wicked problem is unique, so in a sense there is no prior art and solving one won’t help you with the others. No one has “the right to be wrong,” meaning enough legitimacy and stakeholder support to try things that will almost certainly fail, at first. Instead failure is savaged, and the trier is deemed unsuitable for another try. The problem keeps changing on us. It is never definitely resolved. Instead, we just run out of patience, or time, or money, or political will. It’s not possible to understand the problem first, then solve it. Rather, attempts to solve it reveal further dimensions of the problem. (Which is the secret of success for people who are “good” at wicked problems.)"

Origami
is the Japanese word for paper folding.

ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper. Together, they form the word, "origami."

It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations.

Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding. Animals, birds, fish, geometric shapes, puppets, toys and masks are among the models that even very young children can learn to make in just one sitting.

Keep in mind that not one single detox food on this list is a magical one that you can focus all of your attention on to fully cleanse the body.

Consider increasing your intake on as many as you can reasonably accommodate. Some might be hard to incorporate, either because you can’t find them locally or you can’t picture yourself adding them to your diet.

Just do the best you can to come up with a detox plan that works for you and that you feel good about...

Question of the Day

What do you remember most about a recent dream?

I was driving a red Ferrari, and I tried to squeeze through a small gap… Scraped all the paint off the driver’s side, but made it… :P

Not sure if that’s good or bad… I mean, a damned Ferrari! I'm surprised I didn't wake up in tears!

#LEADERSHIP .. OR NOTHING IS SO CONTAGIOUS AS ENTHUSIASM 

When we take our leadership really serious, we live our leadership.. what means living it with all dreams and hopes, with our imagination of a good world. We live our purpose. Only with this background we are able to really be effective and happy. 

And from this thinking naturally arises a kind of passion, an enthusiasm. that makes us believe we are capable of reaching so much, of being able to change our world. Every leader is a change agent, he wants his own change seen reality. 

And many great leaders of history who are best role models for change reinforce our thinking that change must come... through us. 

We feel ourselves empowered to lead change. A natural consequence of competition, passion, purpose, and inspiration. 

The thinking evolves: "Empowerment is the vehicle to success!" 
Empowering everyone around us is the way to success. 

When we use words like #empowerment, we assume that we can trigger a revolution of new behavior. Enthusiasm moves mountains.

This is false thinking. 

When we see change as #empowerment, we assume our world changes on command. 


WHAT WE SHOULD LEARN

Never believe that enthusiasm moves mountains!

Avoid words like #empowerment .. they lead to a false thinking!

How to add text to an image already in a Google+ album

Open up a new post, click on the Photo icon. Then choose "Your Google+ Photos", choose any of your images, click Add and then you get a new post with the image added, and also the text editor possibility.

Changing the text after saving is not possible, unfortunately.  But you can redo another share of the same image.

If you just wish to create several meme's, share those image posts with yourself only and before sharing click on the add to an album, perhaps later downloading them to your computer.

See the photos for detailed instructions:

#Photos     #Meme     #Texteditor     #Jaanatip  

PS:  If you wish the album like this one to display a name instead of the date like here, create a new album or add the photos to an existing album.
Which I forgot to do, again...  :-)
Now I can change the name of the album created when I click it open and edit the name on top, but the name change does not happen in this already shared album.

PPS:

A pro tip for post sharing

If you wish to share some advice, a recipe or how-to instructions:

Preferably create an album of the photos / drawings / images and share that.  You can open a new post and add several images at once, but add at least two.

Why?
Because you can go back any time and edit the album contents, change the text added to the photos, add extra photos, delete a bad picture, reorganize the album etc.

Why is this good?

Because every one of the reshares is updated at the same time!
