The brain at Google

The brain at Google | Psychology Today
"The Club Med of corporations
Having two young children, I found to my horror recently that I was going to a Club Med for one of our family vacations. A day or so into the holiday I discovered something surprising. The formula at Club Med is to include pretty much everything in the price, activities, food, even drinks, giving you fewer decisions to make. Now I know the research on decision making, and how making any conscious decision uses a measurable amount of glucose, but I wasn't prepared for how relaxing it was not having to think anywhere near as much, even about simple things.
It turned out to be a remarkably restful holiday."

Amazing fact, after all our brains are not really good in dealing with multiple choices, and when it does, it at the expenses of a great amount of energy !
I can see 2 lines from this fact..

One It's common said that pilots can handle 2 failures at the same time, but a third is fatal.
Is this a real upper limit?
Should we monitor our decision making to less than 2 options, and if this is the case how to lower the option count?
Second, if decision making takes a lot of brain power.. what type of food we need to food our brains for this type of work?

Facebook: From Bleeding Edge to Main Stream..

Hi,
Check this information:

Facebook (and other social networks) has been skewing older for a while, but the trend has been "massive" in the past six months, according to InsideFacebook.com. In the past two months alone the number of new members over 35 has doubled. Marketers take note: the median age is now over 25, and the largest single group 35 to 44.
Facebook is Your Father's (and Mother's) Social Network | Epicenter from Wired.com

Interesting enough is not young people who are embracing the FaceBook wave, but the middle aged.
This will have a big impact on the way we connect to people from our generation.
Regards,
JP

How to Use Your GMail Account as an OpenID

Have you noticed that sites like Blogger, Plaxo, and Tweetlater now support OpenID?

Some of them can also act as OpenID servers, and you can use them for identifying yourself when joining new services.
This is very handy, because it will eliminate the need to wait for the confirmation request email in your inbox.

To use your gmail account as your OpenID identifier:


  1. Go to http://openid-provider.appspot.com/
    and login using your Google login and password.
  2. On the screen you will see your OpenID URL with this format:
    http://openid-provider.appspot.com/abc@xyz.com where abc@xyz.com is your GMail address. Copy Paste this URL to a safe place.

To test it: go to www.Blogger.com and sign on using your OpenID URL.

Will Google Chrome be your next OS?

A fresh take on the browser

9/01/2008 02:10:00 PM
At Google, we have a saying: “launch early and iterate.” While this approach is usually limited to our engineers, it apparently applies to our mailroom as well! As you may have read in the blogosphere, we hit "send" a bit early on a comic book introducing our new open source browser, Google Chrome. As we believe in access to information for everyone, we've now made the comic publicly available -- you can find it here. We will be launching the beta version of Google Chrome tomorrow in more than 100 countries.


Reading between the lines, I can only say kudos to the Google team.
They have found a way to disrupt the market again.
The browser is the next frontier, and the one who controls the browser will have a first hand control on what the customers see, watch, listen and consume.

On the technical front, they have their back covered, and then some more..
"Google Chrome" is an Operating system, coupled with a Web Based Interface.

How long will it take for the market to deliver the first Chrome computer?

30DC lessons learned #1

I had to go back to the basics, and review my copy of the PDF ‘s from day 2 and 3, to complete my market research.
Market Samurai is an excellent tool, and you should master it before moving further.
But as any tool, it is only as good as you are making sense of the results.

Watch out for incomplete result from Market Samurai.. And always validate your findings with Google:

1. Check the number of competing pages of your phrase in quotes, using goolge.
2. Check that you are using US results if not in America. (see http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2006/07/meaning-of-parameters-in-google-query.html for the hl parameter).
3. If in doubt, check if your competition is using Web2.0 marketing (is the site bookmarked in SU, using firefox SeoQuake). It’s more difficult to beat a web2.0 site
