"As the ability to replicate something has become more of a commodity, we are increasingly seeing that complex interactions are the way to create ‘value from difference’ (as opposed to ‘value from sameness’)." 

Lots of other great ideas on organizations and leadership and efficiency too.

Do you use your email for long-term storage? Gusto makes that so much better.

Search and navigation is what really sets it apart right now - finding that stuff you only half remember. But it promises to be a lot more soon, integrating all of your email sources for instance, instead of Gmail to start.

Great for finding photos and docs. Or adding them in the first place on iphone.

Try it out! its from Indy-based Gusto and my friends +Anna Barker and +Shawn Schwegman.

Got Gusto? https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gusto-email-app-email-files/id839351210?ls=1&mt=8

"We were able to infer medical conditions, firearm ownership, and more, using solely phone metadata."

"We found that phone metadata is unambiguously sensitive, even in a small population and over a short time window."

Pretty interesting article from +Tony Haile at ChartBeat.  

http://time.com/12933/what-you-think-you-know-about-the-web-is-wrong/

+Aaron Bradley also found this, I noticed as I was creating this post :)  https://plus.google.com/106943062990152739506/posts/H1t4HJsSCuh

Love Aaron's summary here of the Fallacies Tony points out:
- We read the target document of links we click on (we don't).
- The most shared content is itself engaging (it isn't).
- Native advertising is as well-consumed as other content (not even close).
- Banner ads don't work below the fold (that's exactly where they work best).

Think of burstiness as n-gram occurrence spikes. These might be new, recycled, or evergreen.  Fresh content newly published doesn't always win just because the phrase is trending.

For instance a search for "Declaration of Independence" increase near the 4th of July might be more likely to focus on mature results. So creating content for that n-gram needs more thought if you want it to win.

Based on a great post by +Bill Slawski here: http://goo.gl/FeICf1 and a Cornell Study here: http://www.cs.cornell.edu/Info/People/kleinber/stream-survey04.pdf

FCC plans to issue new net neutrality rules.

The Federal Communications Commission said Wednesday that it will craft new rules to prevent Internet service providers from charging companies like Netflix or Google a toll to reach consumers at the highest speeds.

Critics have crowned 'The LEGO Movie' as the brilliant hybrid offspring of Pixar's best infused with "South Park's" irreverent humor.

"...now that [social media platforms] have our attention (and do they ever), they've pivoted to supply us not with more and better ways to interact with real people, but instead more and better ways to consume content that corporations pay to put in front of us. Sound familiar? It should, as this is the exact same model network television has employed for 60+ years"  - +Jay Baer

On Desktop, Tabletttop, and Phonetop, the things we use most are easy to access without search and ads... but those are limited.

The browser experience deliberately force us into searching everything, which isn't particularly helpful.  Once in a while History might work.

If I bookmarked it somewhere its still a pain to find, for me at least.

I'm not sure the headline from +Roy Pessis really works, but there is a problem here. Search is not optimal for finding things we have already seen and want to return to.
