Predict the Future with Technology

Image
Today I read an interesting article about predicting the future using social media analytics.

The premise: social medium such as twitter and facebook do one particular thing very well - aggregate personal and social information such as moods, emotions, trends and events. The dearth of information could be analyzed and aggregated into a semantic ball of words and phrases and then correlated with the volume of their appearance to a future event.

"Johan Bollenand his colleagues at Indiana University in Bloomington have created an anxiety rating based on an analysis of hundreds of millions of tweets by people in the US. Their paper has not yet been published, but Bollen says they too found that increases in anxiety on their scale correlated with lower than expected stock prices.""We're astounded",  he says
"We didn't think it would be a predictive relationship."

The Origins of Originality

Image
There is no originality. Everything that has been conceived has already been conceived of. But don't treat this from an ontological point of view. Treat it from the lower levels of literature. 
How can I say that? When there are numerous authors who churn out original content and make billions, as in the case of J.K. Rowling and such.
The premise for the Harry Potter series is not at all original. It is about a boy and his friends and of destiny.
We all have ideas of a boy.  We all have ideas of magic. We all have ideas of a stick or a wand. We all have ideas of monsters, wolves, goblins, evil, power. 
In a nutshell that is what Harry Potter is all about. 
Before, distributing ideas even unoriginal ones was very hard. This made information and stories more expensive. From Gutenberg's time to the present, information is now over abundant that we seldom see something that makes the combination of ideas that we would deem as original. 
One could imagine people dreaming of unicorns and far…

How Much Money Do Domain Speculators Make?

I've been busy creating my newest baby, http://www.twitterlistings.org a website that features hand tailored search queries to help people buy and sell homes on - of all places twitter.com. One week into the project, I've been approached by someone who wants to sell me the .com domain. I don't know whether to be flattered or annoyed. I haven't even finished editing 47 of the 50 US States.

The email reads

Freelancing, Internet Marketing and Valuable Business Lessons from my Real World Experience

Image
Right now, I am engaged in real estate leasing which is generating enough revenue to feed my family, pay the bills, taxes and enroll my kids in a paid home schooling program. I currently live with my family in an unoperational tropical resort here in the Philippines and have recently engaged in Internet Marketing so that I could have savings for the future of my children. 

I've learned about business the hard way. 2 years ago, I made several investment mistakes that I still regret up to this day. It was the product of a hasty decision that's not backed up by a fallback position. Let's just put it this way, I trusted people too much.

In the world of business, it's a dog eats dog world. Call it harsh, call it unforgiving, and call it unfair. But as Jim Carrey says in the movie Bruce Almighty,


"That's the way the cookie crumbles."
But still I have learned many valuable and positive lessons from my bad experience. Read these and I'll tell you why freelanc…

Google Works in Mysterious Ways

Well, not really. Google is not God. Personally, I think Google is a baby SkyNet.

Anyway, as a blogger who's been shouting to the wind for a long time with nary a soul to listen, much less to converse with, I have taken a liking to numbers, particularly in the field of website statistics. The relevance of this came as a surprise for me when I found that one of my random ramblings got picked up by Google and placed in the high mantle of the 1st Page in Google rankings.

I supposed that a round of applause should be in order. But it really shouldn't be so.

Back in the day when I was still using Ubuntu, I took it upon myself to have the habit of writing about the error numbers that I encounter. So I did, the error was Buffer I/O Error on device sdb2. Suffice to say, that I re-read the silly blog post in question and was appalled that it was as exuberant and exciting as I expected it to be.

I hastily altered the contents to give meaningful discourse to the problem at hand for those …
