    largely due to the unique approach they take to solving tough problems The founder Scott H Silverman was named a CNN hero of the week this year for his work in the space Over the past few months I ve had the pleasure of getting to know Scott who gave me the opportunity to visit the facility and see for myself what the organization does and how it transforms people A few months ago I spent a day sitting in on one of their classes and the experience was eye opening and profoundly affecting When you see the system working for yourself first hand you get the message loud and clear Not only is what they do great for local communities it s great for society overall When they contacted me a few weeks ago about getting them into social media I was happy to join on Here s a quick video that we launched the project with that gives you a snapshot of what Second Chance is all about Designing A Social Media Presence For Second Chance Scott s a forward thinking energetic guy and he recognized early that getting in to social media makes a lot of sense for his organization From a cost perspective social media for a non profit is a no brainer but Second Chance was also generating a lot of buzz after Scott was awarded the CNN hero award and released his new book For a non profit they had a huge amount of content distributed around the web Before I came along they were already into email marketing and facebook as well as posting YouTube videos and getting a ton of positive press they just needed a way to pull it all together brand it consistently and create a place that they owned

  • Motorola Xoom Archives - Steffan Antonas
    several really important categories It s got a faster processor it runs on Verizon s brand of 4G it has a bigger screen with better resolution it s cameras are better and it does just about every basic thing an iPad does and none of that was in any of their 30 second spots Why You just can t expect to compete effectively with an ad strategy that relies so much on special effects and so little on demos when such a dominant player like Apple is doing so much to define the category with their advertising Forget the razzle dazzle and the fireworks You have to show people what the thing does better than your competitors In the last month Motorola seems to be taking corrective action and revamping their marketing Their latest set of commercials are a much toned down homage to their target market a young guy in a business suit folds a laptop until it becomes the Xoom and then he uses it a bit He flicks through a Google map does some basic gestures on the screen and you see a momentary flash of a video chat although it s unclear what app or service he s using to do it A B idea with a B minus execution Then there s the one where the young guy falls in love with a girl wearing all white who is listening to white headphones heavy handed anti Apple symbolism Before our eyes Romeo creates a nifty animation on the Xoom that makes her smile and snap out of her assumed Apple induced coma Again a pretty good idea with meh execution You re still left wondering how is it better than an iPad The most notable change Motorola has made with the Xoom marketing plan within

    It may never happen but I think it s a great idea because while GPS based social networking works for people who know each other it doesn t work for sharing contextual relationship data between a person and an object or an organization You could imagine many of different unique use cases based on foot traffic for business and being social New Kinds Of Retail and Restaurant Loyalty Programs What if a store or restaurant had it s own short range sensor that knew when you walked in the door and alerted the sales staff about your sales history and personal shopping preferences What if you were fed instant information on in store sales based on your favorite items or wish lists How would any of this change your relationship with your favorite venues Enabling The Smart Home What if your home automatically knew your preferences for lighting music air temperature etc and automatically adjusted the environment and your devices as you walked from room to room Navigating People Businesses What if you were at a conference and you re in a crowd of people Would it be useful if your device could tell you when you last saw a person you re about to run into or that six steps behind you is someone you went to high school with What if it could tell you that the product that s being sold at the store you re passing is on sale at another store in the same area The web knows these things we just don t have a useful way to get that information automatically fed to us when we re on the go Why Mobile Devices Using the phone as a sensor instead of an embedded RFID chip in our skin for example seems like a logical next step for these types of applications because it makes participation optional and manual It might seem whacky now but you d probably be surprised how many people would be on board if the the privacy to utility ratio was right What are your thoughts on this Too far out there or is it where we re headed Related articles by Zemanta 2010 Trend Sensors Mobile Phones readwriteweb com The next challenges for mobile phones find me and tell me who I am guardian co uk Whrrl Still Trying To Find Its Way In Location Focuses On Footstreams techcrunch com Future of the Web Location Location Location wired com It Knows Where You Are and What You re Looking For nytimes com Yelp Check Ins Totally Awesome or Super Annoying readwriteweb com Published January 18 2010 Author Steffan Antonas Category Design Technology Comments 5 Comments Here Come The GeoWeb Wars One of the very first apps I downloaded on the iPhone was Around Me and it s still one of my go to s It s simple and it does exactly what the name implies it finds your location and shows you all the critical services around you banks
