@ErnieHuber thanks for those additional insights..per our earlier tweets, I still can't help but continue to wonder about cloud security considerations playing a less than popular but more than internally critical role in the transformational aspect of cloud-based solutions:
when we talk of security in the cloud exactly what functional areas are we looking at / being affected (presumably actual transaction-based activities, including the storage and movement of data etc) but why does it continue to be an ongoing issue (thinking out loud here) surely there are identifiable weak spots that have by now been isolated and security protocols implemented to address etc
again, i am thinking from an abstracted notion of internal process and procedure that IT continue obviously wrap their heads around..also, legacy data must certainly play a part in the challenges at arriving at concrete security solutions/work-arounds — migration, re-indexing re-mapping, re-classifying etc and surely for various, specific business functions and not 1 standardized approach ('standard' and 'cloud' right next to each other is practically an unsaid oxymoron)
finally, you also note compliance-related activities: this must also factor into the equation..
thanks again, Ernie appreciate your input as always

@SMSJOE agreed - so in scenarios where culture is not engaged, a separate internal initiative to foster brand values and organically engender (ie., not force but entice through creative, genuine ways) engagement - understanding the socio-psychological make up of an org is so key to this process
2 years, 5 months ago on Demonstrating brand advocacy: is there a best practice?
Joe so you dont think its too idealistic to propose such degree of order (playing my own devils advocate here lol) and guidance to say a corporate culture? I ask the question only to furher postulate and see if there are other scenarios where this balanced guidance may be rendered moot or worse back-fire..i guess im also asking myself: would it be considered disingenious to propose this manner of advocacy to say an org with a 'compromised' sense of culture.. and how would one begin? Surely not by writing another post? Haha I digress. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this.
@RepuTrack Thanks for the additional input Joseph. As @itamarro noted in our correspondence, this is not a "lightweight" topic. In some ways, I wish I could have fleshed out the post to cover many other areas. (But this is why I rely on friends like you for added thoughts :)
Your point on social platforms placing emphasis on evolving identities brings me back to 2 things: (1) what Itamar noted about half-closed ecosystems above, AND (2) what @jared_parmenter noted earlier last week about interest-based networks (as I proceeded to decimate—i mean, comment on the seemingly superfluous rise of Pinterest). I look at these two points and wonder about the degree of fragmentation happening among social graphs (or data sets over all, i suppose): does it matter? If not, despite the silo-like states of these bodies of information, where are we seeing the interplay among semantically coded content that would in effect contribute to advancing the overall (dare I say accessible?) semantic structure..
Your point on the "privacy handshake" seems quite logical indeed. But as we know, without consensus on a standardized model/approach, this 'seamless notion' is pretty much dead in the water.
On a totally different and random track: not sure I like the spacing on these comments (must be a Lifefyre update)

in retrospect i wonder if the grey bar would in fact be a UX enhancement but am so used to the black now. unified search. yay.

@josephfiore now the SAI post was crafted by a contributor? writer? blogger? who may well have taken Godin's words out of context..but nah who am i kidding, even if they were taken out context, the quotes stand well on their own. so ya, it still kinda bugs me. well ,ok it bugs me a lot.
the in-your-face, attention-grabbing headline does not help elicit sympathy on my part either. and you know what, i'm not sure a discussion to uproot and examine typically stifling corporate cultures would lend the post further credence nor make the case for 'being unique' even more palpable (nor useful)
the matter at hand (as it has always been with blogging and clever-sounding posts, mine included) has always been with diction. that, and being more diligent and responsible with defining one's terms (or not), while refraining from careless generalizations.
at the end of the day, most of the social sphere are likely impressed by this seemingly novel insight into how to remain competitive and marketable amid a volatile and increasingly unpredictable economy. but honestly, i would rather hear Chicken Little scream the sky is falling over and over again than to have to stomach the blind deference folks accord some er people.
if you're gonna have to be reminded over and over again to use common sense by great thinkers, what does that really tell you? .. precisely my point.

@RepuTrack try the comment now..just start typing below the post, which is what i am doing now
"I would argue that Mashable long ceased to be a tech blog." - that made me howl. Great post Frederic.

yeah this is pretty cool
