This would be a bit difficult to fit into a gallery:
Rush-hour traffic outside Boston got messier than usual on 3/9/11, when a UPS truck hauling 16,000 pounds of industrial printer ink flipped and shut down an interstate access ramp. When the red, yellow and blue ink hit the pavement, it spread like Technicolor through Oz.
Cleanup crews working with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection arrived on the scene within hours to contain the spill and prevent the ink, which is nontoxic, from reaching the water table. First they tried to soak it up with sand. When that didn’t work, they simply repaved the spill site. The ordeal shut down a 500-foot stretch of Route 128 for most of the day—but at least commuters got a smoother road out of it.
Next time, go SWAYZE:
Social media has forced presentations to become an interactive conversation. Presenters who embrace audience participation are connecting their audiences to their ideas in a more meaningful way. Using social media as a connection tool goes beyond just looking at the twitter feed to assess if you were boring or not. There are six ways to utilize social media while planning your presentation that will ensure an authentic connection and relevant conversation occur.
1.) Listen: The first step is to know your audience.
2.) Create: Establishing the context above enables you to create your most resonant message.
3.) Present: When you’re on the stage, embrace social media in the moment too.
4.) Broadcast: Hopefully you already have well-developed channels to spread your message through.
5.) Measure: The most important component of assessing effectiveness isn’t necessarily how many people you reached – but did you reach the right ones? Did your messages stick, stay intact and resonate?
6.) Adapt: Armed with insights into how the social web treated you and your language, you can make informed decisions on how to modify your message, delivery and visuals so you resonate more deeply in the future.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says Facebook, Google, and Yahoo are being used by the U.S. intelligence community to spy on users.
In an interview, Assange was especially critical of Facebook, the world’s top social network. The information Facebook houses is a potential boon for the U.S. government if it tries to build up a dossier on users, he told the Russian news site RT.
Assange also told RT that Google and Yahoo “have built-in interfaces for U.S. intelligence.”
“Facebook in particular is the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented,” Assange said. “Here we have the world’s most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations and the communications with each other, their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to U.S. intelligence.”
Don’t worry about me, I cover my tracks & I use, like, umpteen proxies!!1!
