We’ve asked the companies in our Who Has Your Back Program what they are doing to bolster encryption in light of the NSA’s unlawful surveillance of your communications.

Social Technographics https://bit.ly/9ud1Op Social Technographics
Social Technographics, a way to analyze your market's social technology behavior. Social Technographics was carefully constructed, not as a segmentation, but as a profile (that is, the groups overlap).

We use the metaphor of a ladder ...

Let's junk the myths and celebrate what we've got http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2008/sep/29/digital.media.new Let's junk the myths and celebrate what we've got "It never fails. I'll be talking with a group about the amazing opportunities of the internet age and inevitably someone will pipe up and say, "Yes, but there are inaccuracies on the internet."
And: "There are no standards there." Or: "Most people just watch junk.""

The Cluetrain Manifesto is a set of 95 theses organised and put forward as a manifesto, or call to action, for all businesses operating within what is suggested to be a newly connected marketplace.
The ideas put forward within the manifesto aim to examine the impact of the Internet on both markets (consumers) and organisations. In addition, as both consumers and organisations are able to utilise the Internet and Intranets to establish a previously unavailable level of communication both within and between these two groups, the manifesto suggests that the changes that will be required from organisations as they respond to the new marketplace environment.
One Billion Internet Users http://www.useit.com/alertbox/internet_growth.html One Billion Internet Users
Some time in 2005, we quietly passed a dramatic milestone in Internet history: the one-billionth user went online. Because we have no central register of Internet users, we don't know who that user was, or when he or she first logged on. Statistically, we're likely talking about a 24-year-old woman in Shanghai.
It took 36 years for the Internet to get its first billion users. The second billion will probably be added by 2015; most of these new users will be in Asia. The third billion will be harder, and might not be reached until 2040.
