Google Social Mail - Now Available as Google+

Google Social Mail - The Concept


Google mail is not integrated with Orkut. Similarly Google did not use its mail to promote its social products. Google was not comfortable in using its mail facilities to promote its social products. But social networking platforms like Facebook, and Twitter used email accounts and facilities to make their products popular. Their argument was that user is giving the email account to them to send emails to his inbox. But the reality is that email boxes are getting choked by mails being generated by social networks.

Google is trying its best to get into social products and tools. Google Social Mail can solve certain problems and also facilitate Google's social product portfolio.

Google social mail is generated by each gmail user and will be used to register with various social networks. Even if a user uses regular gmail account, a default social mail account will be generated and mails of social networks will be diverted to that mail. Social mail can be accessed only from regular email like the Google Buzz facility.

Google need not hesitate to integrate social mail with orkut. Social mail inboxes can be cleared after every six months and the user can be given notice to mark important mails as important and these will be preserved and rest of the mails of a month can be cleared after six months. This will reduce the clutter in the inboxes.

The regular mail will have only really important correspondence and users will have better access to their important correspondence as routine social mail is stored in social mail account.

Google can integrate its social products and allow the users the option of various levels of integration. For instance Google groups and orkut can be integrated. An orkut group can also function as Google group. A Google group can also function as Orkut group. It is left to the option of the owner of the group. Any new social product of Google can be integrated with other social products if such a possibility exists. Orkut now has public personal messages from orkut users and they can be aggregated into a twitter like service. Buzz-messages. The Buzz messages can be recirculated or I-buzzed.  The present Buzz can be used Buzz-discussion. Around social mail, Google can introduce many social products and integrate them and them and link all services to social mail.

The social mail inbox can have folder for each social network of the user and can provide connect button to each network also. This will make accessing various sites very easy for the gmail user.

The Achievement of Obama - An Individual Rising to the Level of Creator

Barrack Hussein Obama is 44th US President
 
This is the headline of a newspaper (6 November 2008, India).
 
"Your victory has shown that no person should not dare to dream wanting to change the world." Said Nelson Mandela.
 
"Aham Brahmaasmi," " I am the Brahma," "I am the Creator this universe." This is a statement from Hindu scriptures. In Hindu scriptures, there are stories or instances of people who created universes.
 
What happened in US now happened in various countries earlier. In India, there was a slave dyansty, a series of kings, all of them being slaves first in their life.
 
But something happening before our eyes gives us the real confidence and energy to try to create change.
 
Our appreciation to Obama for his effort. Our appreciation to US citizens for their decision.
 
India also has the opportunity of doing similar thing. In mythology or recorded history there were many instances of injustices. At various points of time, people realize it and try to make amends. In the society corrupting influences are there. There are also influences that increase moral acts. We have to appreciate the election of Barrack Obama as President as a moral act that may set in motion such events in various countries. The rise of underendowed persons against all handicaps. In this rise their efforts are now doubt there, but there is also the enabling social environment.
 
An appeal is made in one of the papers, to Indian leaders to emulate Obama and become inclusive leaders who talk of their capabilities in election speeches rather than that of their caste affiliation. Obama did not win because he is a black. Obama won because he is the right candidate.
 
Obama's win should inspire many underendowed persons all over the world. Dream and do the effort. You may achieve it. God in on the side of people who make efforts (Yajna is the word used for all noble undertakings in Vedas). Do Yajnas with noble goals. Make the world a happy place physically and mentally.
 

Personal Biography(1)

 
Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Ann Dunham, a white student from Kansas, and Barack Obama Senior, a black student from Kenya.  Obama's parents divorced and he stayed with his mother in Hawaii until she remarried an Indonesian and the family relocated to Indonesia in 1967.  In 1971, Obama moved back to Hawaii to live with his maternal grandparents and pursue his education domestically.  He remained in Hawaii until he graduated high school in 1979.

Obama met his wife, Michelle Robinson, in 1989 and they were married in 1992.  Their oldest daughter, Malia Ann, was born on July 4, 1998 while their younger daughter, Natasha (Sasha) was born in 2001.

Lord Save us From Your Followers - A Documentary Film

I came to know about this film through a blog on the documentary film in my search on North Central College, Naperville, Illionois,  Website .
 
The blogger wrote:
 
It is a controversial and informative film with its basis in the fact that many Christians in today’s world have been going about living their faith on a day to day basis in a not so Christ like manner. The film quotes Gandhi, as saying “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ” and in my opinion, this is a great summary of the film in general.
 
It’s stressing the fact that we as Christians are not living like the Christ we proclaim to follow. Many times we choose to ignore the problems that would greatly disturb Jesus, and do not treat the people Jesus would most likely be friends with if He were here today with any respect or kindness. In essence, this film “explores the collision of faith and culture in America”. Again in this documentary, big names such as Al Franken, Rick Santorum, Bono, as well as many more voice their opinions on the matter. Whether you are a Christian or not, this is a great documentary to view that brings to light many of the shortcomings of today’s Christianity.
 
I think the statement applies to many religions. Most of the founders of religions are kind people. They showed love and affection for the poor and downtrodden. They might have resisted the attempts of the powerful to oppress the weak. But now wars are fought in the name of religion and whole regions are put in a state of conflict, pain and destruction.
 
Any further information on the documentary is welcome. The documentary can be extended to comments from people of many religions.

Internet - Digital Broadband Channel for Motion Films - Movies


Time has come to develop an internet channel for motion films. On this channel producers must be able to release the film along with the release in theaters. The money is collected for viewing the film in the initial period through advance booking. The required bandwidth for satisfying any among of demand can be provided through cloud computing infrastructure. If more people book the movie more bandwidth is provided and less number of people book the movie less bandwidth is provided.

Technology companies are doing their efforts to improve various aspects so that internet digital movie channel provides the same quality as television or cable channel.

This white paper by Microsoft described the features of Windows 9 that make internet digital movie channel deliver more quality.

Hollywood production houses have realized this long back. Two ventures were announced in 2001. Moviefly and Movies.com. You can read about Moviesfly and Movies.com in this information week article.

Movie industry unable to innovate and come out with new model - the result is SOPA

In this article on Read Write Web, it is stated that Movie industry made #30 billion in box-office receipts and $87 billion in total receipts.

If a digital channel is opened and every day 100 million watch the movies on the first day of its release by paying $1, the industry can get $100 million a day and that amounts to $36,500 million a year or $36.5 billion a year. How much of it will be incremental revenue and how much will be cannibalized from existing revenues is a question for further estimation. But the market size is substantially big for film industry to innovate.

Advance One Time Payment for Digital Content - A Possible Payment Model for Digital Content



Content publishers and distributors want the Congress of USA to pass a law to protect their income stream for years. The digital technology has enabled certain practices which are making the earlier copy right concept obsolete and uneconomical. Society has to think of new models of digital content creation and distribution. The basis of  current models of content creation and distribution is destroyed and the current businesses are only trying to salvage the situation for their benefit. Digital content distribution capability can be monetized. Like Wikipedia, donations can be raised to create and distribute content. Commercial and government organizations can finance their digital content sites. Government and Philanthrophic organizations can finance third party sites. Digital content can be easily copied and distributed across net. This makes digital content available to many people and thus it is good for the society as a whole. But popular content creators need huge amounts of money and there has to be ways in digital content distribution to provide money producers of content. Advance payment for digital content could be one option. In this option, producer gets his main money through advance payments that are made before the release of the content. Thus a film has an assured income stream for its first world wide digital screening. A book has its assured income stream from readers who make an advancement payment. A news paper or a magazine has the assured income from its subscribers to the digital content. Once the content is released into the digital space further monetization is uncertain. Then onwards distribution takes over and the space becomes free for all and income opportunity becomes very small.

So the content producers have to make money from the one time distribution event over which they have control.

SOPA is an ill-thought move. To protect 180 Hollywood producers, US Congress should not stifle the 180+ million digital content creators. US Congress must support  content creation  under creative commons rather than promoting unsustainable copy right content under SOPA.

Law Thinkers and Law Makers - Different Roles

Democratic societies have parliaments or legislatures for making laws. The laws makers or legislators are elected persons. There are aptly called representatives of people and their job is to represent the desires of people. The desire for a law emanates from people and the legislatures pool the thoughts of a large number of people through the discussions of various members in the legislatures and craft the final piece of legislation.

Most of the times, the legislators are not the original thinkers of the laws. The original thinker may be somebody and the thought spreads among people for quiet sometime before it becomes visible as the desire of significant number of people and reaches the legislator as an issue to be evaluated for further action. Legislators can't tell not to think about the law and requirement of a new laws or repeal of old laws. Law is not the exclusive prerogative of legislators.

This issue came to the surface recently in India, in the case of anti-corruption law. There is movement demanding enactment of anti-corruption law in the form a "Lokpal" institution and the people spearheading the movement created a draft law. The legislators felt offended and said law making is their prerogative. Yes, law making is their prerogative. But not thinking about the need for new laws and for the repeal of old laws. Law thinkers come from people and they present their case though various channels. It is no doubt the law makers through the power delegated to them through the voting process enact the final laws.

The issue now comes up to the fore in USA in the context of SOPA and PIPA bills. The people who are advocating for the passing of these bills seem to be content creators and publishers of the content. Most importantly it is the publishers of the content who are making a plea for such acts. But as we see in the various social networks, bulk of the people are against laws. Are law thinkers against such laws in USA as well as all over the globe. Internet made millions of people content creators and brought in new publishing platforms. The existing business models of publishing are losing their relevance and laws to continue these outdated publishing models are not desired by people.

Particles travelling at speed higher than light - Observation - 2011


CERN Press Release dt. 23 September 2011

The OPERA experiments have a result to report. The result is based on the observation of over 15000 neutrino events measured at Gran Sasso (receiving station of neutrinos), and appears to indicate that the neutrinos travel at a velocity 20 parts per million above the speed of light, nature’s cosmic speed limit. Scientists announced that given the potential far-reaching consequences of such a result, which is contrary to existing theory,  independent measurements are needed before the observed effect can either be refuted or firmly established. 

The paper can be downloaded:  http://static.arxiv.org/pdf/1109.4897.pdf

We conclude that icosahedral phase is a truly metastable phase which nucleates and grows for a range of cooling rates which are slow enough to prevent crystallization, either from the melt or from the icosahedral phase after its formation.

A periodic tiling
http://www.statemaster.com/encyclopedia/Aperiodic-tiling

Definition of Crystal:
The IUCr Ad Interim Commission on Aperiodic Crystals published a working definition
(International Union of Crystallography, 1992): ‘‘by ‘crystal’ we mean any solid having an essentially discrete diffraction diagram, and by aperiodic crystal we mean any crystal in which three-dimensional lattice periodicity can be considered to be absent. As an extension, the latter term will also include those crystals in which three-dimensional periodicity is too weak to describe significant correlations in the
atomic configuration, but which can be properly described by crystallographic methods developed for actual aperiodic crystals.’’

Recently, the discussion on the crystal definition has been resumed because the term ‘essentially discrete diffraction diagram’ was found too vague for a definition (see Steurer, 2007a; Lifshitz, 2007; Ben
Abraham, 2007; Baake & Frettlo¨ h, 2007; Senechal, 2007; Janssen, 2007; Zimmermann, 2007).

Rule of 7 to Promote Online Content


Earlier I came to know of sharing an article at least three platforms apart from Twitter and your blog. But now I come to know of Rule of 7.

I try to use the rule of 7. What this means is aggregating your content 7 times. This typically means creating a YouTube video about the content, sharing it on G+, Facebook and sharing the content on other blogs. Just making one post about something on your site and doing nothing nothing with it is a waste of your time and resources.

Digital Content Producers and Distributors

Producers of digital media should not feel aggregators are exploiting their content. They are distributing content and providing visitors for your sites. Even in digital media, you need distributors. Only difference is that in digital world, there are many self appointed distributors for your content and this may make your developing the distribution chain more easy. Why not appreciate them through a comment or commendation.

Knowledge = Meaning + Memory

 
 
A person is knowledgeable when he has some facts and principles in his memory and he knows the meaning and application of the principles.
 
Michael Wesch of Kansas State University is credited by Peter Guber in his book, Tell to Win to explain this verbal equation  meaning + memory = knowledgeability [1].

Search Engine Marketing, Social Media Marketing and Community Marketing for Blogs and Online Articles


Why post a blog or an online article if you are not prepared to marketing it in internet streets?


One has to post an article only if he is prepared to do the marketing and related marketing communications. Of course, one can post otherwise also but the chances will be that nobody visits it because nobody in the world knows its existence. It is like a note that you kept in your locker under lock and key.

Search engine marketing and social media marketing are the two leading online marketing tools for online articles. If you are publishing on an article platform like Knol, you have the author and visitor community of the platform as a separate group. Your friend circle and personal contacts are another group with whom you can share articles.

If you post and leave...it will just sit there

Recent economic knols by Peter Greenfinch
 
This knol reached quickly the 1000 pageviews. It warns about the ominous danger of an imminent global monetary collapse in the lack of a real global monetary system.
It proposes solutions to that crucial and urgent issue which the world authorities seems currently unable or unwilling to tackle, as nations do not want to cede any portion or their exalted, but illusory, "sovereignty".
 
That knol goes further than the classical narrow theories on the topic and their poor explanations when applied to the 21st century economic evolutions
