As many of you may have noticed, January 18th was Internet Blackout Day in an unbelievably successful attempt for many of the web’s heaviest hitters to show their strong disapproval of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). As companies like Google, Wikipedia, and WordPress “blacked out” their content and urged users to endorse their opposition to the bill, SOPA and PIPA’s sponsors started to run for the hills, but the lawmakers haven’t backed down – even as the amount of endorsements against the bills allegedly shut down congress’ switchboards and melted their servers.Comments (1) | Permalink |

You are good to go for the next month. Now imagine that you are a police officer at the station’s narcotics unit, printing the latest dirt on your targets.

Your doctor visits are now covered at 80/20 for the year.
There is something important that you should be aware of. > Read the rest of this article

Have you ever wondered why social media has taken off the way it has? Why websites like Facebook and LinkedIn have gained tremendous popularity and now have tens of millions and even hundreds of millions of users? And if you’re engaged in social media, how could you make the most of it? Part of the answer can be found in a social network theory first proposed by Dr. Mark Granovetter in the 1970s. Understanding Granovetter’s work can be quite helpful in growing a network of contacts with some intentionality.
Dr. Granovetter researched economic sociology and developed a theory on the spread of information in social networks. That is the backbone of his paper “The Strength of Weak Ties” (1973), and helps shed light on why current social networks grow and spread so naturally.No comments yet | Permalink |
