Should I Stay or Should I Pokemon Go?

Should I Stay or Should I Pokemon Go?

Is indecision bugging you? Should you join Pokemon Go? I was pulled into the fray after hearing the social media buzz and "Pokemon" hunters began showing up at our workplace. I wasn't really into the game as a young adult, but I knew about the game and it's following. WHAT IS POKEMON? Pokemon are fictional creatures that humans known as Pokémon Trainers catch and train to battle each other for sport. The Nintendo game was very popular in the 1990s. WHAT IS POKEMON GO?

Benjamin Franklin – We Have an Old Mother

We Have An Old Mother By Benjamin Franklin We have an old mother that Peevish is grown She snubs us like children that Scare walk alone She forgets we're grown up and Have sense of our own Which nobody can deny, deny Which nobody can deny. If we don't obey orders, Whatever the case; She frowns, and she chides And she loses all patience And sometimes she hits us A slap in the fact Which nobody can deny, deny Which nobody can deny. Her orders so odd are, We often suspect That age has impaired Her sound intellect But still an old mother Should have some respect Which nobody can deny, deny Which nobody can deny. We'll join in her lawsuits To baffle all those Who, to get wheat she has, Will be often her foes; But we know it must all be Our own, when she goes. Which nobody can deny, deny Which nobody can deny....

Common Sense by Thomas Paine

Introduction to the Third Edition Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour; a long habit of not thinking a thing WRONG, gives it a superficial appearance of being RIGHT, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason. As a long and violent abuse of power, is generally the Means of calling the right of it in question (and in Matters too which might never have been thought of, had not the Sufferers been aggravated into the inquiry) and as the King of England hath undertaken in his OWN RIGHT, to support the Parliament in what he calls THEIRS, and as the good people of this country are grievously oppressed by the combination, they have an undoubted privilege to inquire into the pretensions of both, and equally to reject the usurpation of either. In the following sheets,...

Peter Kim on the Future of Social Media

Notes on the future of social media from the 2016 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity presentation by Peter Kim the way it is used now will be gone it will be shoppable. not just viewing and reading text or clicking a link. you can make the purchase immediately. it will be snackable. shorter and more concise content - only a few seconds. So that users can get it, digest it and move on. it will be automated - artificial intelligence (AI) will take over. Higher yields can be gained by utilizing analytics, patterns, etc.... it will be connective. Back to the original purpose of connecting societies; the world. Avoid clutter, interruption and irrelevance....
