Obama Endorses the Value of U.S. Social Technologies

"We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook. In America, innovation doesn’t just change our lives. It’s how we make a living." With this one sentence, spoken Tuesday during his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama ushered in once and for all the Age of Sociotechnology, the age that recognizes the importance of the interaction between people and technology in both workplaces and society. Obama recognizes perhaps better than anyone in America the extent to which technology nowadays is socially constructed and society is technically constructed. "We are the nation...of Google and Facebook" - those eight words may well go on to become the most significant President Obama has ever uttered to date. For better or for worse, it would seem that the destiny of the U.S.... (more)

Technology Face-Off: Augmented Reality vs Mobile Image

There are 3 new technologies competing for attention on today’s mobile phones: Augmented Reality (AR), Mobile Image Recognition (MIR) and Mobile Tagging (MT). This briefing aims to provide a short introduction to all three, position them against each other and illustrate how all they can co-exist together. Augmented Reality (AR) AR uses the current view (front end) of the real world visible through your phone camera to display online content (back end) linked to specific objects located within the view. AR does this by using GPS co-ordinates to figure out a ‘start position’ of where you are and your phone’s built-in gyroscopic compass to orientate to specifically what you are looking at. The combination of where you are and what your orientation is allows the AR software to resolve to back end content that adds some perspective to what it is you are looking at. AR ... (more)

Cloud Computing - The New Rock n' Roll

Two news items have caught the attention this week, and both brought the John Lennon and Paul McCartney penned Beatles classic “The Fool on the Hill” to mind (more specifically the line “Well on his way, his head in a cloud”). One piece compares data centers with rock stars and the second, globally reported, contained President Obama’s $3.8 trillion 2011 budget blueprint designed to pull the US economy’s deficit out of the danger zone. Although the headlines might appear unrelated, the actual content of both pieces reveal two sides of the same coin. The coin being Cloud computing. On one side we have the private sector investing heavily in the ‘sexy’ future of computing by plowing millions into new data centers (Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Amazon etc) and on the other we have the public sector seeking to cut costs and balance the books by reducing its dependence on ...

Starbucks and Chevrolet Check-In and Declare Game On!

New Media on Ulitzer Social networking games are moving from the fringe to the front lines of social media marketing at light speed. Two recent examples are below! As I have written about for the last few weeks, this is not some fun new promotional tool that brands might want to consider. This is far-more and, I believe, will redefine mobile marketing as we know it. These platforms allow consumer brands, in the context of a controlled campaign management system, to track the actual traffic driven to individual store locations, in real-time. Even more-powerful is that the information conveyed can be tweaked by location, time, region, season, etc and continuous improvement can be fueled by tracked, actual, live mobile consumer interaction with the point of sale locations where real money is exchanged for real goods. For years, brands have spent time and effort driving ... (more)

Internet Business Transactions near 450 Billion a Day

By D. Bruce Johnston, President and CEO, DBJ Associates Commerce on the Internet continues to skyrocket. Chad Levitt, author of the “New Sales Economy Blog,” recently wrote a post, “Sales Reps, Are You Ready for the Digital Universe?,” based on information he gleaned from a recently released IDC report on predictions for the year 2020. Here are some of the major findings from the IDC report: Between now and 2020, the amount of digital information created and replicated in the world will grow to an almost inconceivable 35 trillion gigabytes as all major forms of media – voice, TV, radio, print – will complete the journey from analog to digital. Last year despite the global recession, the Digital Universe, set a record. It grew by 62% to nearly 800,000 petabytes. A petabytes is a million gigabytes. Picture a stack of DVDs reaching from the earth to the moon and back. ... (more)
