Google’s arrogance on display: burying the lede about its Google+ vulnerability and shutdown
"Google announced it would shut down its social network Google+ yesterday after revealing that it had given outside developers access to private data. At least that’s how the media is describing it. Google’s own statement just buries the news amid a whole bunch of other announcements, like a radioactive pellet"

More Catfished By A Candidate: Why Not Hire Him Anyway? And Answers To Other Burning Questions
"While there was certainly the possibility that he could have been a top performer, at the end of the day, I just couldn’t take that chance. The most unsettling thing to me was the length that he went to in order to craft his story—fake LinkedIn profile, a whole story around why he was leaving the job, fake references."

Study: No Shortcuts From SEO — Old Web Dominates Google Search - by @tomforemski
"The Ahrefs study, however appears to show that businesses are wasting money pursuing SEO as a quick short-cut to attaining first page ranking. Ahrefs discovered that it takes two to three years to attain number one ranking on a keyword. Trust is a relationship that needs to be consistent over time in order to build. There is no shortcut through SEO and it's risky business, IMHO."

Media Disruption: Is the Race To The Bottom Bottoming Out? - by @tomforemski
"The darlings of the new media sector such as Buzzfeed, Gawker, and Mashable attained massive amounts of traffic yet even they were unable to run fast enough to stem the race to the bottom on declining advertising revenues.

Google is also racing to the bottom. Every quarter it reports less money per click than the same period in the prior year. In it's most recent quarter it reported 18% less -- a larger than expected decline. But it beat Wall Street estimates because it found more places to show more ads."

Facebook Fake News Problem: It's A Media Company - by @tomforemski
"Facebook (and Google) is finding it harder and harder to avoid being seen as a media company. I’ve called Facebook, Google, Yahoo and many others — high-tech enabled media companies for more than a decade. I’m glad others are seeing that: publishing pages of content with advertising around it is a media company."

No Testing, No Documentation, No Problem?
"These days, the ideas of “No Testing” and “No Documentation” are seeing a resurgence in the agile-focus development community.

What exactly are these trends? Quite literally, they are software development without testing or documentation. But this is an intentional decision, not in the too-common way that you run out of time and/or budget to do proper testing or to write good documentation."

"Jonathan Parnell, BrickworkX, IT strategist, who co-founded Tulivia and ran its training division, also said an opportunity to STEM education is key. He got into IT through STEM programs in school, he explained, and that rare opportunity has lead to a 30-year career. “Kids need equal access to STEM education across economic levels,” Parnell said, “especially minorities and girls need to get access to this training.”

What’s the Role of the CIO in a Modern Agile Organization?
"Schwartz also argues that we need to change the “unit of transaction” between IT and the business: the project. We still constantly transact and govern in projects. By changing this unit, we can release from Waterfall-style control."e

The Rise Of Fake News Amidst The Fall Of News Media - by @tomforemski
"Googols of top neurons connecting over the Internet and we still haven't figured out a way to collect the true monetary value of professional news media so that it can be reinvested in producing more high quality media.

Since 2005, after leaving the Financial Times, I've warned that if we can't find a way to pay for professional media then society will pay for it in many unpleasant ways such as a rise of misinformation from special interest groups."

Gartner Purchase of Corporate Executive Board Would Address Changes in IT Advisory Market
"Despite their big advantages, the big IT analyst shops face disruption. They face perpetual accusations of pay-for-play bias. Many techies say they know more about the topics than the analyst briefing them. A three-part podcast hosted by Kea Company describes how many smaller companies address these shortcomings."

A 'Tumultuous Decade' Rolls On... More Lost Generations Of Journalists - by @tomforemski
"High-tech media companies such as Google and Facebook are creating the advertising deflation. But they can ride the waves of the deflationary media business models because technology itself becomes cheaper and better; and it scales and changes faster than people.

Traditional news media relies on people and original reporting and creativity — a newspaper would not print screenshots of a rival newspaper — the Googlebot does and its why its ads are cheaper."

Media Disruption Accellerates As Paper Ads Plunge - by @tomforemski
"With all our visionaries and tech geniuses we still have not figured out the innovation that will enable us to monetize and sustain professional news organizations.

- Digital advertising is not the answer because it continues to decline in effectiveness and revenues per unit.

- Subscriptions are not effective because they limit the reach of the news stories."

The Future of Media: Can Publishers Become Media Platforms? - by @tomforemski
"Social media platforms have helped raise readership numbers for many titles but their revenues continue to shrink. In the old days, more readers always meant more money but not so in the world of digital media. Publishers have to run ever faster just to keep still because the social media platforms have flooded the market with cheap advertising that continues to deflate."
