Musing on Google’s Power Searching Course and marketing

Jay Cross

Today I completed Google’s Power Searching Course. Do I know any more about search than I did ten days ago? You can narrow a search by date. Previously I approached Google searches much like looking something up in an encyclopedia or dictionary. After the course, I treat search more as an iterative process. A pre-search can inform the real search. Or after the first search, I can add to the query to zoom in on what I’m after.

Search Inside Yourself with Chade-Meng Tan

Dan Pink

” As part of that mission, he developed a personal growth curriculum at Google called “Search Inside Yourself.” How did the Search Inside Yourself program come about? The main motivation for creating the Search Inside Yourself program is to create the conditions for world peace. I think the main distinguishing feature of Search Inside Yourself is its emphasis on training core emotional skills. Chade-Meng Tan is an amazing guy.

The evolution of search will refine the spectrum of quality in media

Trends in the Living Networks

Search is not getting better, or it certainly seems that way. In the evolutionary battle between search engines and search engine marketers, the search engines are not keeping ahead, and crap content is finding its way into the top of search results. This makes search users unhappy, opens the way for alternatives to the dominant player in the Western world, AKA Google. In the context of search, if people find what they are looking for, it is high quality.

Why Can’t We Reform The Health System?

Steve Denning

Almost as frightening as its cost is how poorly it performs. Clayton Christensen has an interesting short video on Forbes that seeks to explain why health system reform doesn't happen. They stringently evaluated new development and weighed the cost of new investment against potential gains. It’s an inside-out perspective of tweaking the value chain and searching for internal efficiencies as the main goal of management.

A Novel Method for Measuring the Value of Free Digital Services

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

How do you measure the value of the increasing amounts of free information goods available over the Internet, including Wikipedia articles, Google maps, Facebook interactions, smartphone apps and You Tube videos? The first is that the marginal cost of delivering them over the Internet is pretty close to zero. Here are the 2017 median amounts that it would take to compensate a consumer to give up access to each of the digital categories for one year: Search engines - $17,530 .

Is the Digital Revolution At Last Shaking Up Banking?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the West, banking has been late to the smartphone age, partly because entrepreneurs have been put off by increasing regulations, and partly because banks have been preoccupied with repairing their balance-sheets and cutting costs since the financial crisis, - which incidentally, pretty much coincided with the advent of the smartphone. Digital transformations have generally followed three distinct stages.

The Simple, Economic Value of Artificial Intelligence

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In their opinion, “the best way to assess the impact of radical technological change is to ask a fundamental question: How does the technology reduce costs? Only then can we really figure out how things might change.” For example, the semiconductor revolution can be viewed as being all about the dramatic reductions in the cost of arithmetic calculations. What are the key implications of significant reductions in the costs of predictions?
