Weapons free ??

Whewwwwwww.. This is hot hot hot…. Weapons free status !!
"Everything to the west is weapons free," radios Staff Sgt. Sam Mortimer of Seattle, Washington. Weapons Free means the marines can shoot whatever they see -- it's all considered hostile.

This levity continues until the Marines turn the corner onto a main street they've tactically dubbed, "Elizabeth."
Despite the constant weapons fire and explosion that have accompanied our advance -- this one is different -- it's directed at the Marines. As a squad from India Company passes by a way with a spray painted rocket propelled grenade launcher -- a real RPG round explodes against it. One Marines' face is burned by the powder and hot gas -- another has caught shrapnel in the leg, a third has been shot in the finger by the small arms fire that followed. The Marines are outraged. They turn their M-16's on the building to the west where they believe the shooter is hiding. But that's just an appetizer.

Things grow better with Coke

Instead of paying hefty fees to international chemical companies for patented pesticides, Indian Farnmers are reportedly spraying their cotton and chilli fields with Coca-Cola.

One litre of highly concentrated Avant, Tracer and Nuvocron, three popular Indian pesticides, costs around 10,000 rupees (£120), but one-and-a-half litres of locally made Coca-Cola is 30 rupees. To spray an acre would be a mere 270 rupees.

Open source marketing

Open-source web browser Firefox has good buzz, and not just because it's mounting a fundraising effort to buy a full-page ad in the New York Times.

Here's a $100,000 question: Is raising money for a six-figure full-page newspaper ad open-source marketing, as some call it? Perhaps, if you accept the premise that the Mozilla Foundation (the open source organization behind Firefox) is relying on its customer evangelists to fulfill a marketing goal. (As of this writing, more then 9000 have have contributed money toward the ad campaign.) The fundraising effort has parts of the blogosphere talking, but arguably that's due the participatory framework of evangelist involvement"

St. Bernards of St. Bernard closed ??

Oh thats so sad, the Offical St.Bernard dawgs are being sold away at the 17th century old monestary of St.Bernard.

The earliest mention of St. Bernard dogs at this hospice stretches back to 1695. "The issue of those dogs - the famously huge and heroic ones, who toted brandy barrels in legend, who lived here for centuries and sniffed scores of stranded travelers out of the snow is that the descendants of the dogs who gave the breed its name - and this nation a symbol - might be put down or not find proper homes."

Ok here's the deal, what happens if you pepper your posting with comments from mulitples pesudo users...each comment is populate with the URL setting of that of a unique Adsense Link

Now SiteVisitors normally are inquestive by nature and they just click the commentor's link to surf onto that person site /blog .... ..but then they get directed to an adsense link.. so the CTR (Click Thu rate) from your site actually bounces up...

So what gives...create a parser for RSS Adsense feeds, create a script which populates comments on a blog page and then wait.. it can be done manually also.. .. so If you create 10 comments with 10 adsense links.. what happens ?? at least 1 in 10 vistors normally try to review other sites /urls correct ??

This is Crazy - Platypuses !!

"The weird and wonderful duck-billed platypus just got even more weird and more wonderful.
Platypuses are famous for laying eggs yet producing milk, having a bird-like bill and a skeleton with reptilian features. Now it turns out that the mammal has an equally eye-catching way of deciding its sex, according to a study by Frank Grützner and Jenny Graves at the Australian National University in Canberra, and colleagues.
In most mammals, including humans, sex is decided by the X and Y chromosomes: two Xs create a female, while XY creates a male. In birds, the system is similar: ZW makes for a female, while ZZ makes for a male.
But in platypuses, XXXXXXXXXX creates a female, while XYXYXYXYXY creates a male. In other words, rather than a single chromosome pair, platypuses have ten-chromosome chains that determine their sex. "

Eh ??? Then the odds are that they are more advanced then the human species !!!!!

My GPS Unit Will Be Watching You

"Every Step You Take . . . Every Move You Make . . . My GPS Unit Will Be Watching You"

Technology may be ushering in a golden age of stalking, in which predators use GPS, cellphones and other devices to track and terrorize."

Robert Sullivan became America’s first documented GPS-enabled stalker, we are faced with a classic technology dilemma, as perfectly legal and useful devices are turned to less savory ends. GPS units help to track rental cars, Alzheimer’s patients, wandering children, wandering cattle, wandering fur coats. Miniature video cameras monitor babysitters, and keystroke-recording software monitors children’s Internet use. But just as drug dealers appropriated beepers and terrorists the Internet, these technologies and more are being embraced by a new breed of high-tech stalker.

The back up of trucks is as far as I can see, so they are probably looking at delay times of an hour or more just to get into the customs compound."

Another Replied :"Fort Erie is experiencing about the same situation as Windsor. All you can hear is the drivers honking horns. Picketers are allowing one truck every twenty minutes to procedure to the QEW. Most Customs Officers feel it will be over by Friday.. Hope they are right."

Someone wrote "Here is the latest from our two border offices (Windsor and Fort Erie)"

I really wonder if a business community blogs away critical events (not just the geek stuff), won't this make a HumanityV2.0 better ???

Just a thought !!


Google Moves into India

Yes, this was not surpraising. India is the next growt engine !! What took them so long ??

MicrosSoft Products Suck !!

Hmmmmm.. this is interesting thoughts from Rob. S. , Evangelist for Microsoft.

From PC tablets to search engine Communities. He's now moved into a the most profound dynamics of all, by openly admitting the mistakes that Microsoft makes. ( Wonder if he ever read MicroSoft Rebooted!!).

Anyway, the very nature of his blog implies a very important (VERY=BIG WORD) mindset change with the corridors of MicroSoft. They need more of his breed around. Sanjay P., I think has given him a good peep talk on the nature of following ones heart to create "true lovemarks". Thats exactly what the Mac Community dote on Apple, yet with MicroSoft, everyone still crys wolf !! Its only when the whole of MicroSoft begins to behave, think and act like Rob, will they be able really move into the hearts of their customers. Say what you mean, mean what say, and always tell the unvarnished truth. ALWAYS !!
All companies are born to die, just like all people are born to die. Being on the of the richest Corporates, does not mean that one has the right to do as one please. Pleasing the customer is the most important aspect of the brand Harmony. I wonder if they have a brand Manifesto, I would like to see that .... :)-

I blogged this sometime ago.

Rob, if you ever read this .. "ALL PRODUCTS SUCK !!", every customers whats just that little bit more then what you can provide !! ... Yeah and make yourself a TIB as your begin your quest.. and best of luck dude !!

What Lovers Tell Us About Persuasion

This is interesting... "there was a third set of communicators who employed a breathtakingly simple and successful procedure that we term the relationship-raising approach. Before making a request for change from their partner, they merely made mention of their existing relationship. They might say, "You know, we've been together for a while now" or "We're a couple; we share the same goals." Then, they'd deliver their appeal: "So, I'd appreciate it if you could find a way to change your stand on this one." Or, in the most streamlined version of the relationship-raising approach, these individuals simply incorporated the pronouns "we," "our," and "us" into their request."

Here's another kewl toy from Clusty !!

Try it, feel it and you'll love it ..and if this not an innovation , then me is toast !!!


Never is execution more important than when innovation is at the heart of a strategy. That is because innovation always involves treading into uncertain waters. And as uncertainty rises, the value of a well-thought-out strategy drops. In fact, when pursuing entirely new business models, no amount of research can resolve the critical unknowns. All that strategy can do is give you a plausible starting point. From there, you must experiment, learn, and adapt.
A good point .. cutting edge means , throw yourself over the cliff and hang in there !!!

Hoping I can lift your spirits
Or perhaps ease your pain

Top20 Security Vulnerabilities (Updated) ~ The Experts Consensus

The Top 20 is widely used by organizations as a security benchmark.


This week's- 1Minute Strategies:

This week's - 1 Minute Strategies:

* Don't avoid introducing someone just because you forget his or her name. Admit - and apologize for - your poor memory. "I so enjoyed talking with you at last month's conference. I can't believe your name is escaping me right now, when I want you to meet my colleague, Jane Gibson. I'm so sorry." Then, repeat the name aloud, to show that you're making an effort to remember it this time. And if someone neglects to introduce you to another person, step forward, extend your hand and do it yourself.
* Don't appear disorganized. When working as part of a team, determine who will deliver information to the boss ….. and who won't. Example: Will the person gathering training-cost estimates present them to the boss, or will the team leader do it?

Reading my Brain ?

Researchers have identified a circuit in the brain that appears crucial in converting short-term memories into long-term memories. The circuit links the major learning-related area of the brain to another region that governs the brain's higher functions. The studies may open the way for eavesdropping on one of the central processes in learning and memory.

California Institute of Technology published their findings in the October 7, 2004, issue of the journal Nature.

Reading my brain is 'Nature' ????

Search Strategy

This is conceptual model of what happening , out there.

She talks about novelty analysis, using the "Difference Engine" they've .... They have a prototype called News Junkie that pesonalizes news using onfromation novelty:

This is then followed by ..."he talks about noisy channel information finding. For example, in spelling correction the system tries to figure out what the original (intended) spelling was based on the misspellings introduced by a "noisy channel." We're moving from "doe sthe page contain the query terms" to "Does the page satisfy the information need."

I see a complete behaviour methods being captured, used as part of aHerustic Model to sustain branched patterns growth, along with Confidenece Rating per method. It reminds me our oldf GEOIND project.

On this thought flick'r , I have a blog here !! ( a little bit more deeper, I think).


China Growing

Jeremy is sending out really kewl info from Web2.0 conference. He's very precise reading. Yet, he leaves imagination wide open for the reader.

I know that China growing, but wtf is Mary Meeker ?? Trade Data from WTC and other places dont have what Mary / Jeremy has noted. Yes, China is a place to find work, it would be nice to ride a biycle from work to home and still moblog the chicken sales in the community market.

Are there still Triads in China ?? I dont want to be kidnapped!!! Big deal, once they kidnap me they have to pay someone to take me away.... me is good at being bad and when I get bad I just get better !!

SAP moves into RFID

SAP's RFID platform is based on SAP's NetWeaver integration and application server middleware, including the software vendor's Auto-ID Infrastructure and SAP Event Management applications, and on Infineon's You-R Open software, designed to connect readers, smart tags and other RFID devices with back-office software.

Microsoft moves into this Sphere too !! and this goes beyond the RFID manadate

With the DOD going RFID full for inventory and This will happen by a 2007 mandate.

However, there are concerns about market thresholds and standards. Like Oracle is upbeat with China. Other concerns... This playing feild is wide open for opportunity!!

Finally, RFID will tell you what you need to know in Kobe, Japan !!!

Legg Mason's =The next Most powerfull .....!!

"Legg Mason Funds Management Inc. and Legg Mason Capital Management Inc. collectively own 4.3 million Class A shares of Google, or 12.77 percent, as of Sept. 30, said the filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

At Tuesday's closing Nasdaq price of $138.37 per share, the 4.3 million shares are worth about $595 million. Google shares were sold to the public at $85 each, which would give Legg Mason a gain of $229.5 million if its stake was bought in the initial public offering in August. "

Ok, so they just have double (12.77=25.14).. or whatever they say.... go figure with my blog here

Breaking News- My Company Sold !! exciting !! Q3 end seemed the best entrance strategy. 3 months to level out and UPS now becomes the largest Player in the market. Now, thats something that I like. But, how long will this transit from MWW to UPS will take ??

Anyway, The playing field becomes bigger..more exciting now. I had this feeling it was coming, but then again.. wh know's eh ???

NYSE quick quote : 1300HRS EDT
Since resuming trading, shares of CNF were trading at $43.89, up $2.04, or 4.9%, on heavier-than-normal volume. Earlier, the shares hit a new 52-week high of $44.03, up from the previous high of $43.01 reached July 21. The 52-week low, set $30.50, is Feb. 17.

MArket watch : UPS and FedEx have a combined market share in the U.S. of more than 70%, while DHL holds just 6% of the market.

UPS is also a major player in RFID.

I whisper..."Do I still have a job ?"



Just got of the Lightening Investor CNF Concall. Some the question from investors and answers (described as my thought flick'r) !!!

What is the risk management strategy for synergy cohesiveness for Sales& Market and how will the gains be used for new business strategy ?
Proceeds not to be used for aqusition but will be used to merger costs. These costs will be leveled out in 2005 and effects will be approx a penny a share!!

What happens to the remaining 2 business Units. Will there be cost cutting and plan to create a synergy for collobration of these units under one umberalla.
Yes, we will rightsize to move all units under a single folio. Global Solutions is the projected way for the current folio!!

Was the logistcs pices on the table as part of the deal ?? Were options were on the table ??
Aquistion team opted for various pieces.

What is the MWW head count that will be transfered to UPS ?
All head counts will go to UPS.

How does the Depreciation leveling look like once the complete transfer has occured ?
About 2or 3 cent costs per Quarter. No offset at current projections.

Commitment for tendering or calling for debt ratio and what is the credit rating standings ?
Postive comments from credit rates. Covenent with the Banks is in good standing. No degradtion to investment grading. Debt instruments is being used for leverage of Cash accruals (130Millon).

Timing for closure of Transaction
3 jurisdication needs to be looked. Transaction closure slotted for end of Q4/04.

Outsourcing contracts for MWW. Do these Outsourcing go with transaction ??
They go with the Transaction to UPS.

Tradelines that being given up to UPS. How much was market segmentation.
1/3 is import, 1/3 is exports and approx 1/3 never touched the US.

Summary Brief
CNF is moving towards a consolidated Global Logistics player. The merger of Conway, Menlo Logistics, Vector SCM will formulate leaner organization, which will prove higher investment rations. CNF's strategy looks firm. Growth factoring looks ripe. time will tell !!!!

UPS's strategy should be based on assimliation with a "new wave culture" theory, to sustain vision of Broader Supply Chain Initatives to enable Global Commerce.


CBSA staff on Strike ??

Many federal government employees (including CBSA staff) will be in a legal strike position as of Thursday. As such, work disruption could take place in the form of "work-to-rule", rotating strikes, or a full-scale walk-out.
The service provided by the Electronic Commerce Unit will continue 7/24, but, with very limited resources. We will, therefore, have to suspend some activities to accommodate urgent production matters. For example, client testing and the addition of new profiles will not occur during strike days.
We will update our hotline message as the need arises to advise if/when the ECU has scaled back service. We regret the inconvenience that this may cause you and we thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

This is Ridicules !! As an entiled citizen, I protest this behaviour !!

Kinky ...Google Cuffs!!

Google needs human capital consumption to sustain growth. Yet , there is, "The loss of key employees is a real risk for a technology company after it goes public," said Eric Jackson.

"Based on Google's share price of around $130, senior vice president Bill Coleman estimated that around 60 percent of the 1,900 Google employees with the company at the end of March each now hold stock options worth at least $1 million."

Go figure... approx $2,166,000,000,000 market captialization...and that is in ...$$$ value !!! as per NYSE and Nasdeq!!

Is this true ??? $130 x (60%(1900 employees)) x 1,000,000.00 worth??? = $$2.1 Billion ???

* 3 easy ways to reduce computer eyestrain.
1. Position papers the same distance away as your monitor, so your eyes don't constantly refocus.
2. If you forget to blink while concentrating, keep artificial "tears" handy to lubricate your eyes.
3. Clean the screen.

The Buzzzzzzzzzzzzz... is on !!!

Whew...this is flowing in like crazy...Titled "don't look at me as I look at you"

It's apparently okay for RFID tag promoters to watch you apply lipstick from 750 miles away, but not for a privacy advocate to keep an eye on companies using the pesky technology

To date, Wal-Mart and the U.S. Department of Defense have been among the most vocal backers of the technology.




What da F$%# ???

"Nortel plans to lay off 3,250 employees" -Brampton, Ontario, company also will eliminate about 650 positions in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and 250 elsewhere in the world

The disclosures came in a regular biweekly filing to the Ontario Securities Commission.

The work plan is expected to deliver cost savings of about $500 million in 2005 and greater savings in subsequent years, according to the filing. But it will also bring charges to Nortel's income statements of about $220 million for layoffs and $230 million for real estate. About 35 percent of those charges should be incurred in 2004 and the remainder in 2005, according to the company statement.

1,400 employees in the U.S. and about 950 in Canada, with those employees to be notified by the end of June 2005,



RFIDv1.0 was published here. This is the 2nd in line strategy offering.

"Interest is high -- and business opportunities may be there for the picking -- but when it comes to figuring out how to apply RFID to their midmarket customers, solution providers remain largely on their own".

"Catcher in the rye"

Spontoues Thought Flickr'ing!!!

Date :Sept.29-04 - Toronto
Current Schedule :5:45PM . Status : Strategy offerings
Next Schedule : 7.00PM . Status : Geek Dinner / Moblog'ing !!

I did not make my next schedule with the famour blogger from NYC !! Pity eh ?? My wisdom was in the office, but my heart was out there.. Me was dissapointed !!

So I ask myself, WHY dissapointment !!

Well I had this concept that I wanted to create spontues thought flickr'ing amongst the blog community. Throw a seed of thought, along with a single leased email, and then everyone sends in their thoughts. Now, each entry becomes a seperate blog and that creates a harverst of thoughts ...for the community...!!! Something like an orchestrated world thought flickr'ing!!

Geeeeee.. pretty wacky biz eh ?? How to do it, I dunna me is still a newbie !! Anyway, thats what I wanted to talk about. SO, caught up with this Idea, that I aquired this.

Randy, this is a topic for our geek dinner !! :)-

EPCglobal Inc. U.S. conducting a summit. Analyst watching. The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) plans to require suppliers to use RFID tags by early 2005. "It's very difficult to build a strong business case when it's just for compliance," said Mal Postings, global head of mobility for Capgemini SA, which sponsored a media lunch at the conference. "I agree (RFID) is in its infancy at the moment."

When you read this article and have a pulse on these markets. It become pretty simple, Those who adopt to RFID will be the winners. Those who don't will be assimilated.

I remember reading once, in MIT Lab's , a whole home was retro fitted with RFID equipement, including the test sbujecct's glasses. When the subject used special computer to search for his lost glasses, it spat back ."On couch, under the second cushion". The retro lab actually was able to ping the article, locate it, use raster methods of location and identify a corresponding article assoicated in proximity!!. A spanning B+ hashing algorthim, being piped into a raster algrothim, created 3 dimensional locational results.

Think pic-n-pac, product shelf life streaming for biz and Now imagine your home now like that ??

Speak to your watch !!


Update : RFIDv2.0 and RFIDV3.0


I dont know if this will work out. Geek Political Action Commitee . Any ,mission with a joint committee tends to hinder more then advance. Hey, but if works so much better for the geeks. I'm all that !!

Will this be like the IETF group which created the INet ??

/dot feed not working

Me is having a problem with the feed with /dot

Is anyelse having a situtation


"Reality can only be changed insofar as it has not yet occurred. We can try to influence the future, but that is all."

- Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921-1990), Swiss playwright

A good future is something you take part in creating - right now. But there are several ways of relating to the future, and that influences our desires regarding retirement. Our self-image is also important for our dispositions. This is talk about women and their future in the future !!

Take a look at this article from this think tank Inistute.

Slowing Light, making faster networks ?

This is a mind blower if it works out.. actually does make sense if you understand jitters and leaky bucket syndrome !! Take a look at this article on Slowing Down Light.

If they get this concept deployed, that, taking full advantage of the 20 terahertz would be easy in terms of sending 600 two-hour feature films in about one second. !!

Now just think, what fiber optics and the role that they may play in your home ??
Methinks that once ivp6 gets more used, then every darn thing in your home will be rfid and all you need is a watch on your wrist which is voice activated. Glasses on your nose to see just about any darn thing you wish to see !!

Does Sibera really have dogs ??

Does Sibera have dawgs ??

How Do We Prepare For a World Without Cheap Oil?

I have been following an interesting thread of conversation on oil. The summary response concludes like this ..

"And with 6.5 billion people to feed, I am reminded of a somewhat frightening quote that I’ll likely garble: “Throughout history, when humans are left between starvation and raiding, they raid.” What do you think?

Yeah what do you think, once oil runs out eh ??? Another doomsday scare ??

Strange Fact !!

Just reading a brand schooling paper at HBS. What really got me is that.. "The U.S. Government represents 35 percent of the U.S. economy".

Now thats an eyeopener 35Cents/1$ back to the gov ??? Strange, If I look at it, we Canadian's give back approx 22% back to the government, get back health care and other benifits. What are the american society doing ?? Don't they think these thoughts ??

A Postulate for HumanityV2.0

This is not an endorsement for Google!!PERIOD!!. It’s an Evangelical mission for GoogleSphere (aka HumanityV2.0)

GoogleSphere is a conceptual framework of a virtual reality world. This Model is created, managed, policed, and defended by GoogleLites. GoogleLites are a community of real indivduals having a similar purpose and mission.

When I goggled , “GoogleSphere” and “GoogleLite” there returned only 228 and 10 pages found respectively. Wow!!! A very minor leverage factor in today's world of information age. Thus, this is a very new and exciting word, which needs to be assimilated under a just cause for humanity and like me, any other citizens of planet earth.

Let me begin my testament, now!

Metcalfe’s Law states, "The value of network increases as the square of the number of users on the network." This, too me means, if I know a single strand of thought, the power of that thought is only 1. However if 2 people know it, then it become 4 and thereon. The Math’s are simple, no brainer teaser. So, I need to get others onto this framework of thought.

However, with all this spill, comes the headache. “You cannot solve the problem with the same kind of thinking that has created the problem." -Albert Einstein. We need to change our thinking. Will this single thought flickr’, prove that as a joint level effort amongst fellow like minded community can raise the torch and that we (Googlelites) continue to pass the baton !!

Why the need for an Evangelical mission ? “You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction." -Alvin Toffler. So follow cybernuat’s, Bloggers, gmailer’s, googler’s and people who really believe that a mental world of a GoogleSphere, is the best for humanity, spread the word. Spit a comment here, email this blog. I really want to know what you think.

Let me end my postulation with this observation from the recent games. “In the Men’s 100m Final, four athletes finished in less than 9.90 seconds, but it was USA’s Justin GATLIN who won gold medal with 9.85”- Athens2004, Day 9. Aug.22/04.
We, Googlelites, do not intend to aspire to be on a podium as #1. However, we all wish to behind by that .05 ornano second difference for the sake HumanityV2.0, correct ??.

So how do we, either confirm or denies this postulate ?

The rules of engagement – This I believe statement

TIB#1 : If you believe for good, then you believe in GoogleSpherev1.0. Spit your thoughts out here or send me an email. Metcalfe’s law is being tested.
TIB#2 : If you believe in being a Googlelite, then do just 1 thing to reinforce TIB#1 for the United Federation for GoogleSphereV1.0
TIB#3: If you truly believe in changing the world, try this evangelical mission.

The race begins for Humanity2.0 !!!
We have a seed of thought, which is very in terms of Metcalfe’s value network. The Power to change based on Toffler's wisdom and sense to listen to Einstein !!
So, do something. Do anything. Get going. Now!!! Humanity, as we know it, is in a precarious state and the lives of our future kids is at stake.

This postulate is dedicated too;

Chris, a fellow “Googlelite”, (I don’t know), but the breed we apprecaite. The type of nerd, who has, that very high and distinct ethics, which will not permit him to place gmail invites on ebay !!
And for TomPeters, another “Googlilite”, whose blogs are witty and filled with thought provocation. Tom, I snitched a couple of your saying, on this round.

Thank you in advance for taking the baton !!
God bless!!
