Cube43 – Feed The Network

Are you part of a network?
What about the network that Google has?

When you do a search through Google, you help Google get better. When you click an ad though Google’s ad network, either on a Google.com site, or on another side, you help both google and whatever site you are on. If you create a site, you can add ads to your site & the more content you provide for Google, the more money you could make.

Now think of another network.

This cube comes from the book What Would Google Do? by Jeff Jarvis. He explores many topics with one of the common themes being:

Do what you do best & link to the rest.

Cube28 – When Blocked You

When a group of people comes upon a obstical and overcomes it, there are at least two stories to tell. This cube from TWIg 80 features two tracks, one on technology developed to help people communicate, and one of people trying to stop communication & how the world has changed.

TWIg 80 was recorded on February 2nd 2011 – after the start of the issues in Egypt, but a while before anything in Libya.
