This morning’s news that Prince died of an opioid overdose made me livid. Why? Because it was preventable! It also demonstrates — yet again — the complete ineptitude of how the American medical industry deals with pain management and the epidemic levels of addiction... Continue reading

Kevin - I carefully avoided the use of phatic so you could chime in with it..;) Actually - I think the bloggers in Baghdad is similar but not quite the same - real time reporting has existed with reporters as well as bloggers for a while, What I am talking about a step removed from that - not reading and following a first hand account but living and aiding it in a concrete way. Of course supporting bloggers and commenting on accounts is a piece of this but what is the next step? make sense?

Heather - so well stated "Not about the speed and pellet-giving of social media streams." I am so happy you like the ideas reflected. I downloaded the Red Alert app cause it is what I knew/know and gave me pause to think about this in broader context for other situations and people's in Gaza, Ukraine, etc etc. I also like your thinking on "roles" doctors, diplomats, press, soldiers. The key is that this broadens and does not narrow our empathy - the usual cautionary BOF tale. I should update my throwaway comment on the end - it was placed there to avoid this turning into a political discussion, but it is true that I gave it short shrift. It is a a sad commentary and event deeper statement about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict that it is tough to discuss in words in a back and forth banter and often devolves face to face and even more so online. My "throwaway" statement should in no way reflect the seriousness in which I think and reflect on the entire situation on both sides, just perhaps my exhaustion on how best to discuss and move forward. Now that I am feeling like writing again - I will indeed cross post over to Tummelvision!!

Beautifully put Brian. Heather/Elisa - thanks for your comments. The Net is indeed Us. I often wonder what it would have been like has social web been more pervasive back then. Of course cell phones were knocked out so we would have been reliant on wifi only. Cheers, D

Ryan - thanks for commenting! We wrestled with not adding a new term as well, but felt it was important to get across the fact that this is not just a community manager type. Who knows - it is fun name for the show at least! That said - great ideas for guests we know em both well. Would encourage you to check out for more on the tummeling stuff Cheers, D

Completely agree that this is very topline - it is a talk to get people to start thinking about the page as a social space and create a metaphor. Comes out of my frustration that many are not thinking and realizing that people are connecting, socializing and participating online not just passive old metpahors - aka web pages. This was actually written not for big IT businesses but for an audience from small startups - designer and developers to large non - tech organizations. It is not innately valuable to have a handshake but it is a way to think of what happens when people enter a site What do you mean by adding political content? What am I missing?

Grant - they just dont get the future - if you cant measure it they are skeptical. However - I cant wait to hear the talk. My suggestion - put some of it out there - videotape, interview etc and drive demand. Want me to interview ya?

Well that is America - land of the consumer. I thought maybe after 9/11 we would be able to refocus a bit - but nope. Maybe the country is just too big too diffuse - no excuse but sad nonetheless
