Deeply personal experience, aptitudes, perceptions, insights, and know-how that are implied or indicated but not actually expressed - it resides in individuals & teams.http://bit.ly/H0cCOu
Tacit knowledge (as opposed to formal or explicit knowledge) is knowledge that is difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalising it.http://bit.ly/HgZ2YB
Unwritten, unspoken, and hidden vast storehouse of knowledge held by practically every normal human being, based on his or her emotions, experiences, insights, intuition, observations and internalized information. Tacit knowledge is integral to the entirety of a person's consciousness, is acquired largely through association with other people, and requires joint or shared activities to be imparted from on to another. Like the submerged part of an iceberg it constitutes the bulk of what one knows, and forms the underlying framework that makes explicit knowledge possible. Concept of tacit knowledge was introduced by the Hungarian philosopher-chemist Michael Polanyi (1891-1976) in his 1966 book 'The Tacit Dimension.' Also called informal knowledge.http://bit.ly/GVLyli Read post in Google+
My computer has Spartans...
Customer: “Hi, my son says that I have Spartans on my laptop and I should bring it to you guys.”
Tech Support: “…Ma’am? Spartans?”
Customer: “Yes, I called my son at school and told him that screens keep popping up all the time, and he said that I have Spartans.”
Me: “Oh! You mean Trojans! That’s a possibility; let me run this analyzer on your laptop real quick and we’ll see what’s going on.”
Customer: “Young man, my son is in college and he says it has Spartans. You just stand here in a little uniform and make minimum wage. I think my son knows what he is talking about.”
Tech Support: “You’re right ma’am. I was hoping to run a diagnostic and find out that it wasn’t Spartans, but just by looking at the login screen, I can tell that you probably have about 300 of the little guys running around.”
Customer: “300?! Is that bad?”
Tech Support: “It’s horrible. They cram themselves into a bottleneck and kill wave after wave of data, until there is a wall of dead programs blocking any more traffic through your computer.”
Customer: “Oh, that just figures. I’m going to go buy a new computer.”
Tech Support: “Ok, ma’am, I think that would be best.”
His ability to communicate is deteriorating faster than tech can keep up. The fear is that Prof Hawking could ultimately lose the ability to communicate by body movement, leaving his brain effectively "locked in" his body.
In a world enthused by the Higgs-Boson, where cutting-edge physics is actually getting wider attention and acclaim, how can we possibly risk losing the ability to communicate with Stephen Hawking?
We need a way to communicate directly with the brain!
This new page of calculated metrics lets you look at pluses and comments and shares in a new way, and lets you slice the results finely into follower strata as well as by country and gender. See who is engaging well in different strata of followers! What topics and tactics are doing well?
Since then I've been playing with the idea. I'm sure some of you will scoff at the relative crudeness of the metrics, but I'm finding that its both directionally correct and valuable in certain modes, especially discovery and analysis.
Here is a link already setup that slices the data in a way that is enlightening. It shows Google+ Users with Highly engaging content and 10K to 15K followers. http://bit.ly/Hy2HPE
This slice helped me locate several interesting new people, each with their own unique modes of engagement. The variety is interesting and energizing - so many ways to engage, so little time!:
Brilliant or stupid? I'm going with brilliant after reading the details.
Ford says just Kick the Bumper to Open the Trunk...
It’s an elegantly simple idea: just kick a spot on the bumper, and the tailgate lifts up. It also works in reverse. Once you’ve loaded the car, kick the bumper again, and the tailgate comes down.
The idea works with two sensors as well as a keyless entry system (after all, you wouldn't want people going around and kicking your car’s bumper to get into it). And it takes a human kick to open the tailgate — running over road kill or backing into the side of the garage won’t set it off.
Ford says it spent six months perfecting the idea in its Human Machine Interface laboratory.
Are you scared or excited about where all of this is going?
Author Rank: Google gets smarter - by letting you claim your identity and content.
Author Rank is Invisible Klout
For the first time, Google has the capacity to value content you create on other platforms. Google can even begin to value your contributions based on its assessment of your actual identity. from Jay Bear's Convince and Convert: http://goo.gl/fL1qf
I love it, but those of you that hate +Klout should realize that this is not so different, albeit done with a lot more depth and finesse. Read post in Google+
I'm not in the least bit anti-Google, and I wont be deleting my web history before March 1. But if you have more concerns than I, here are instructions...
How to Hide your Web History before the Big Merge
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has posted instructions for deleting your web history and stopping it from being collected in the future, which is the only way (short of cancelling your Google account) to keep that data from being merged with everything Google knows about you from Google+, YouTube and its other sites.
I wrote on a LinkedIn post about this yesterday in response toa post by +Jeremy Haskell :
But while the final decision likely must come from an informed human brain, I expect that the potential pool of possibles to be curated by algorithms and based in many cases on new measures of skill, reputation, and influence.
