Have you ever heard of Arthur... Artie Moore? Today he would be the top social blogger of our time, bar none.

Meet My Son, Megatron

Look -- these folks can do what they want -- as we all can -- my beef is not with them but with those who find this a worthy story of our digitally connected world...or somehow think that we can get baby names only this way

Where Are the Peers?

Community was once a place of action linked to emotion -- a powerful hub and spoke of social change. Nowadays anyone on a compiled data file can be considered to be part of a community. How the mighty have fallen.

How long has it taken GM to figure out that its cars have been crashing and that people have been dying as a result? And then how long did it take GM to admit it had a problem and start to recall specific vehicles? Where was the BIG DATA?

Monetizers and Snoops

Truthfully? I want to be protected from the monetizers as much as I want to be protected from the snoops -- although I can make a better case for the snoops.

Bury the 'Hachette'

To be fair, I am an Amazon supporter. An early, early user. A Kindle type (app, though, not device any longer). A believer that they should raise prices... you get the point. But, I now put them in the Google category. They scare me.

Have We Forgotten How to Remember?

Needless to say in our always-on, never gone, digital world, memory has taken on spectrum of new meaning most of it cold, rational and linked in very clear and direct ways.

Go Tell it on the Mountain

We are so jaded and skewed in our thinking that true creativity is being stymied and atrophied because we don't get that digital isn't everything.

Information-less in the Age of Information

No -- this isn't a sequel to Lost or a new episode of Sherlock or the next season of Homeland.

Twitter, Schmitter, and Turkey

"Twitter, mwitter," so said Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan to thousands of supporters at a rally in Istanbul last week where he vowed to close down social platforms.

India Can Ignite Your Imagination

There is a new way to look at growth potential, one that suggests we leave our measuring biases aside and get into the hearts and minds of others.

LEGO... Putting the Pieces Together

David Sable | Posted 05.03.2014 | Technology
David Sable

TV, movies -- but at the end it's about the blocks, and 85 years later -- every block ever made connects to another, and every extension they have ever introduced connects to all.

Who Gets the Rewards for Your Membership?

How much are you willing to pay; commit: sacrifice; pledge; leverage; or give up to participate with a select group that by definition or at least by connotation are exclusive....in other words membership.

The Algorithms Reap While the People Sleep

Whether Edward Snowden is a traitor or not is to me an ethical/political issue... the answer to which I guarantee will change over time -- today's traitor is tomorrow's hero.

Super Bowl -- Game and Culture

David Sable | Posted 04.05.2014 | Sports
David Sable

I'm glad I went -- 80,000 happy and screaming fans reminded me that we watch the game because of what it is, and everything else around it builds and adds to the culture of the whole -- including the half-time show and the ads.

Dichotomy

David Sable | Posted 03.29.2014 | Media
David Sable

Next time you read a nasty post anywhere, think on that point because that in fact is the point: The whole damn thing was created to facilitate worthwhile dialogue -- to get another point of view, to expand our perspective. That was and is the point.

Dr. King: Social Pioneer

David Sable

Take the day and week established to celebrate a man who walked in Gandhi's footsteps, who fought racism, bigotry, hatred, and small-minded thinking his whole life, and who understood, long before the Web, that we are all inextricably linked.

Mad Men Vs. Digibabble

The Whole Egg is based on a consumer view; the understanding that there is no perfectly symmetrical way to pigeonhole a person's viewing/watching/listening/doing habits and the deep insight that data is a key to delivering value to said consumer.

Waze and the Wise Kings

If Moses had Twitter, would the Ten Commandments have received wider coverage? If Muhammad had Facebook or Buddha LinkedIn, would the essential pillars of major religions be different today?

What Is a Best Buy... Really

Have you ever heard of Hubert Joly? No worries -- no one else had either when he was named the CEO of Best Buy in mid 2012.

You Say You Want a Revolution

What is it that "social media" actually does? Does it sell? Does it change opinion? Does it foment revolution?

A Shoebox of Memories

David Sable | Posted 02.02.2014 | Media

My father was not digital -- he didn't own a computer -- and, yes, you can find all kinds of archived references to him online -- but his life was always analog, plain and simple.

Kickstarter, the Golden Calf, and Galileo

David Sable | Posted 01.25.2014 | Technology
David Sable

To me it's a place where a '60s sensibility of commune meets and marries the power of the digital age. And the beauty of the Kickstarter model is that it builds on our human desire to be a part of something new and exciting.
