    Innovation has a low Klout score | Christopher S. Penn : Awaken Your Superhero 

    Trailing indicators are great – they tell you what has worked, they help you to refine processes and fix things that are broken in your current processes. These are invaluable attributes that make them an essential part of your marketing mix. Klout score, PageRank, stock price, AdAge 150 listing, web analytics data – all of these are very effective at telling you what has happened.
    The problem is, if you’re looking for what is going to happen, what the clues are to the future, and how you can be ahead of the competition, none of these numbers will be of help. Here’s an obvious example: Spotify.

    Mike Cane’s xBlog on #nymwars 

    The Google+ Real Name policy is just utterly wrongheaded.
    It is against human nature.
    It is against Internet Culture.
    It is against the reality of how many people — writers, actors, performers, singers, artists — choose to identify themselves to everyone or to different market segments.
    The Real Name policy should be dropped.
    And Google has to right all the damage it has done.
    It has broken trust.  That is the mortal sin of the 21st century.

    Joint Commission: Real-time surveillance dashboards assist med safety 

    Would the approval of medical marijuana by more than half of U.S. states create momentum for the rescheduling of cannabis on a federal level and perhaps decriminalization or legalization regarding recreational use? Possibly, Fox argues.
    “Politicians understand a clear legal majority,” he says. “And in the Senate, there would be majority representation of constituencies that have legal medical marijuana and supported it. And that would definitely be of assistance for getting laws passed on a federal level once it got to the Senate.”
