    This post is the first in an open blog debate about slacktivism between myself and Bad Pitch Blog gers Richard Laermer and Kevin Dugan. Last weekend a cartoon avatar campaign swept across Facebook, an effort to raise awareness about child abuse. It became a pretty substantial event in Facebook, which triggered debates about slacktivism and the value of awareness versus real bonafide outcomes. The effort was brought about by a Phillipine volunteer named Jay who was horrified by child abuse in his own country and wanted to raise awareness. Awareness is needed before people act.

    [Blog] Why aren’t there more women in open source (and what are you gonna do about it?)
    The list below might give you an idea of what women are working on now, and find a little inspiration on these blogs and the projects too! I’m a big fan of open source and as a woman who mangles a line of code here and there, I’m constantly amazed when I see how few women there are working in the field. Now, this is not one of those boo-hoo posts (you guys are MEAN!) about poor down-trodden women getting short shrift. That’s not really my style. I’m honored to be moderating a panel with a few of these amazing women  for  SDForum’s Tech Women’s Program.

    This unsettled blog owners who were already uncertain about accepting contributions from strangers. Blog owners remained unconvinced. Blog owners, take heart: not everyone is just after an easy link. The reason link building is under fire is because certain methods (black blog networks, comment spamming, keyword stuffing) try to “game the system” and outsmart search engines. Guest posting is one link building strategy that does have the potential to add quality in terms of new, unique content for your blog from someone else’s point of view. Spammer! Black hat!

    It's the discussions, the exchange of views, the participation in events, blog posts, and similar content which counts. Don't get too excited about an increase in poor quality activity.    An upsurge in poll votes, likes, sharing, has little long-term impact upon the community.

    [Blog] Five for Friday
    Authenticity, Transparency, & Hypocrisy: An Observation – One of the things that bugs me about many social media circles, pundits, blogs and conferences is that everyone is attracted to the shiny object. If you only read one post in this list, peep out the Miami-based filmmaker’s blog. knew then that she was a smart cookie and really like this guest post on Arik Hanson ’s blog that talks about social media audits.

    [Blog] Before the Winter
    What does autumn mean to a blog? Before winter, farmers must plow their fields under. They must can the vegetables they can’t eat. They must do their trading to have the right kind of stock in the cupboards for the cold times to come. We’ve lost this quite a bit, haven’t we? Few of us know any farmers. Few of us have to make any particular plans for the winter, except for our sport of choice, or maybe if we live in an old drafty house. Beyond that, the seasons are just another window we click off at some point. What does the harvest of all your efforts mean for you?

It was light compared to the last two weeks as everyone catches their breath and move forward from the Facebook Places announcement but the location industry was very much active this week as ever. Over the last seven days two of the very first location-based services announced check-in rewards/specials.

    'The science of content marketing is much bigger than publishing an occasional blog. It’s easy to focus on your number of words written per day, or blog comments per post, and lose track of the metrics that matter in the process. No one wants their brilliant idea for a guest blog to be shot down. Does that idea really warrant a blog article , or could it be better expressed in a simple infographic? Is your company guilty of focusing too heavily on top of the sales funnel content to convert leads, like blog articles and eBooks? Not Prioritizing Time Management.

    There are exceptions to this, but for information products (eBooks/courses), it’s important to have some momentum on your blog.

    Noticed a blog post by Content Analytics on Why analytics companies should stop focusing on “accuracy” in automated sentiment analysis saying we can’t really measure sentiment in text – we can only evaluate how someone is reacting – and their emotional state is affected by what was seen / read / experienced just before writing, and that can rarely be measured. I’m quoted in the post (my post, that is) which I bolded, below. Discussions on automated sentiment analysis “accuracy” are starting to border on the bizarre.

    Those stories don’t have to be solely contained on your blog, or your YouTube videos, or other common vessels for swashbuckling corporate tales. This is an era without information gatekeepers, and every company needs to think of itself as its own TV station, magazine, and newspaper. This puts a spotlight on businesses’ ability to tell their own stories with nuance and impact. Even the humble and oft-maligned About Us page can be a scintillating source of content and brand-building, if you free yourself from the boring, factual archetype. Awesome. How about you?
