    #45 @Max🐝 J. Carter, My entire professional career has been built on writing. The concept of networking in the field of science and technology has its own specifics that include mutual exchange of experience, expertise and knowledge. I support all dedicated writers, who have not yet earned well-deserved attention. What is important is the human interaction as an inexhaustible source of unusual and most valuable inspiration. "Helping Others Help Themselves". This is my vision of a fruitful networking.

    To runaway from a situation which test your real being is like leaving the battlefield before striking at our worries. However hard we try we cannot avoid those situations, so why not face them with courageous intent. Though brief but this buzz was worth reflecting upon.

    Dear@Sara Jacobovici.WHY has two dimensions ,one is related to our instinct that justifies our existence in life or in business,like that of F.Nietzche quote"He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.",and the other one is related to people's attitude and used when attitudes to a number of items need to be investigated and compared.I see the second as a shadow of the first.Many people hold views that are genuinely contradicting or have a feeling that they are unaware of and unable to articulate.Here, we use the question "why" as a probing technique to uncover them.An example of a respondent who is unable to articulate his behavior ,the following probes seems most appropriate before we ask the question "why" or "what are the other reasons",in some situations several questions may be need;
    an expectant glance
    'ah hah',' mm',or 'yes'followed by an expectant silence
    'What else?'
    "what other reasons"or "Why do you say that"
    "it's because of my.......etc."
    Then respondent may have to be taken through a series of "why"or "what're the other reasons"before being asked about the issue itself.

And, hopes emerges fervently where there's faith. Yes, with sincere hopes, miracles do happen. Perhaps, all you need is unwavering perseverance for the timely succor.

    #12 @ @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman - That is true. But even if we ignore the risk involved in having some other than yourself hold important and sensitive data on your behalf, we need to understand that cloud-based computing will continue to fail at times when a robust internet connection is not available -- for example, most of the time while flying on a commercial airliner. To my mind, the situation with cloud-based computing is the usual one of marketing people running way out ahead of real-world fulfillment. Thank you for reading and commenting. Cheers!

    #7 @ @Pamela 🐝 Williams - Yes, those of us who travel a lot know well the travails (travailia?) of cloud computing. If I were to rely entirely on cloud-based computing, every time I fly to Taiwan, I would lose more than a day's potential working time while in-flight. And BTW,don't believe for a minute that the airlines actually provide in-flight internet service. In my experience, fewer than 50% of planes have been fitted with the equipment, and of those which have, fewer that 20% of those are actually functional -- never mind the exorbitant fees for using it. Thank you for reading and commenting. Cheers!

    25/05/2016 #9 Phil Friedman
    #4 @ John Williams - I have no doubt that some people will find cloud-based computing satisfactory from an operational standpoint. But I doubt they are in areas of the world without reliable and robust internet services. And I doubt that such persons travel much. Security is another matter entirely, but of equal concern. Thank you for reading and commenting.
    Phil Friedman
    25/05/2016 #8 Phil Friedman
    #5 @Donna-Luisa Eversley - This is not a technical issue. It is simply the case that that universal, reliable, and robust WiFi and internet service does not yet exist. So if you base all your programs and data in "The Cloud", there will be times that you will be unable to work or access those programs and data files. My recommended approach for most small-business is to 1) work only with software that keeps a functioning copy on your local drive, 2) keep your critical current working files on a local drive or auxiliary drive, and 3) keep a mirror of your data files in the Cloud (which mirror is synced at regular intervals with your local files). Thank you for reading and commenting.
    Pamela 🐝 Williams
    25/05/2016 #7 Pamela 🐝 Williams
    Makes 100% sense @Phil Friedman, and there is also the caveat of public access. At one company I worked for it disallowed accessing the internet on company owned laptops if the source was public. That immediately ruled out airports, Starbucks, or any other public WiFi. I tried to do some urgent 'updates' from a hotel while on vacation and ended up having to call and walk a teammate through the fixes because the laptop wouldn't allow me to access the company system or the cloud. Secure; yes. Conducive to working on the road, No.

    I have a phobia against building on rented land. I do use the cloud for many things, but none of them are "mission-critical." (Sorry, for the use of an over-used phrase).

    @Phil Friedman great obsevations.The biggest challenge for entrepreneurs with cloud computing storage is access and integration when you need it ...as internet access is never always foolproof. As secondary storage i think its great. For small businesses and entrepreneurs it may be best to really evaluate backup options, because it can be an embarrassing situation. I can recall years ago launching an interactive website and visiting customers trying to illustrate how easy access was on tablet, mobile, and computer... well , that day there was a problem with access in the area...something happened to a cell tower and we could not get online. To make the time valuable, i thought to review offline some information with client and had no access to get in...

    @Shubhanshu Garg...can you share your expertise in this area with us please :-)

    #10 Thanks Phil - and you are right - this technique is useful in many situations, including holiday - family - friends gatherings. Another exercise I suggest is to take the power stories and then simplify them so your grandma would understand what you do for a living. Too many people have a difficult time describing what they do to strangers - so how can people help them if they don't understand what the heck you do?

    Spot on, @Wayne Yoshida
    This works. I've had a few interviewers comment that by emphasizing my particular accomplishments they were able to quickly compare them to their needs.
    It also clearly shows what led to my being promoted from one position to the next. Now, if the employers would learn how to clearly present what the position their advertising actually entails, I wouldn't end up wasting my time talking to them.

    #44 You have to be following them to tag them.

    In comments: do an @Name of Bee, a list will drop down, and choose the Bee you want. Some are more difficult. For Instance (sorry Ali, you were the best example) When I want to tag @Ali Anani I sometimes have to type his name as it appears on his profile (A..I...i...space...A...n...a.. and then he'll show up in the drop down. The reason being, for example, because of someone with the first name Alice. So when I type just Ali, it will show me Alice, or anyone else with a first name that starts A L I. It's only after I add the space and A N that beBee begins to recognize that Ali is the complete first name.

    In a Producer Post
    if you want to tag someone in the post I'm told you can also use the @ as in a comment, but I've not done this yet. You can link to their profile but I'm not sure if they are notified (@Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín, how does the tag work in the body of the Producer text? Is it working yet or is that in this month's roll out of updates?) When you have time to answer Fede, could you tag Lyon?

    A Bunch Of Things You Can Do To Ensure Optimal Readability For Your Long Format Posts On beBeeI‘ve been writing op/ed stuff for a lot of years now and I got a good deal of advice and insight along the way.Not into the writing side so much, because you either have that or you don’t and you have to just work harder at it.

    #20 Mark Anthony, I agree that an edit feature would be a welcomed addition. But, you can immediately delete then repost a comment on beBee if you notice a typo.

    #20 I feel this way also. Typos, mouse acting up, clicking on the wrong key, clicking 'enter' to early, brain hiccough and you use the wrong word - being able to fix those things would be most helpful!

    It would be useful if beBee allowed an edit feature for comments. I could have corrected the spelling mistake in my previous comment then. Or, perhaps I shouldn't rush to send .

    Thank you @Jim Murray! It may be useful to explain sone of the terminology you use ( type tools, hard return) for those of us that don't know.

    Some very good suggestions, @Jim Murray. I agree with your additions, also, @David B. Grinberg.

    One question, Jim. While I am familiar with the desktop publishing terms "hard return" and "soft return" ('returns' coming from "carriage returns" on typewriters and on the old dot-matrix printers), perhaps you could explain that the "hard" return is when you hit enter twice as opposed to the "soft" which is created by hitting enter just once (and the latter does not always appear as a new line on the editing screen in Pulse, Wordpress, or Producer). Unless I have totally misunderstood, sir.

    @Jim Murray, I love you tips on writing. Here's one to add. I ran across an app that helps you build a proper rant. It's call Grumblery. See it at the Apples store. Cheersw!

    Good advice, @Jim Murray. I would also add this to make long-form posts more reader-friendly: 1) Use compelling photos, images. 2) Use bullets to break up lists or make your main points. 3) Use sub-headlines to break up paragraphs. 4) Use the big point size and/or quotation readout on important messaging (which breaks up text). I always try to use all the aforementioned techniques. I hope they're working!

    #20 Actually, Mags, opening up to more than 3 hives is not the best idea. The spam-potential is too high. You can always ask others to share in other hives. Come to think of it, if you wanted to post in, say, 6 hives, list the other three in a comment. Someone else will do it for you.

    I'm not sure whether that lead-in image is *supposed* to be literary irony or whether it's just unintentionally ironic. To start an article with a title like this with one of those inspirational cards-cum meme thingies that are so prevalent on LI these days made me give a mental face palm.

    I'm coming to the discussion rather late, thanks to an overpowering work schedule, so I'll just add my voice to the chorus of a) I didn't even know one could set one's feed to 'Producer only' (why would one even do that at this stage of the game? It's way too early and new people are joining daily and I'd like to hear from them) and b) I don't actually subscribe to a 'you do it for me and I'll do it for you' attitude when it comes to posts. Heck, it's fast getting to the point where I can't even keep up with commenting on stuff I really *want* to speak to (this post being a prime example; I had to put it into the 'read later' basket, and here I am, four weeks after everyone else, finally giving an opinion) Why on earth would I waste my time on posts that *don't* intrigue me or pique my interest?

    In the Industrial West, we're pretty conditioned to quids pro quo (quid pro quos? whatever) but, happily one advantage to online relationships is that it's a little easier to just be yourself.

    I believe you have some valid points, but what I would say is what @John White, MBA has already said in a better manner than I could, to wit: look, you've already been answered by beBee employees, including the founders, who have directly addressed your concerns.

    I think your worrying might be a little premature.

    #74 From the mind of Shaman and Reiki Master, Max Carter circa 2011 ad

    If knowledge is power than wisdom in understanding.

    The sword and the master meet and the sword stabs the hell out of the master to teach the master that the sword needs no master to wield it.

    When you learn Phil how to make the sword and the master none than you will be your own master.

    #61 #63 John I totally get what your saying and thank you, it is very much appreciated.

    There are always growing pains and sometimes someone has to the one to say what no one wants to hear but might be needed.

    beBee has great potential in its blending of aspects of more than one platform into the concept however there is always a danger when you start closing the off the community to what can feed the community ans sustain long term growth.

    Think as the concept of diversity breeds diversity.

    Giving equal weight to all content regardless of it's origin breeds diversity. Anything else kills diversity and it's a slow death and the decay is often not noticed until it is too late or it becomes a major thing.

    #54 Phil What I see here in you latest comment is that you are telling us you don;t know what you are talking about in your first comment of challenging whether or not I am a Shaman and that you have nothing really of value to add and that you are not happy you got called out for the tactics of trying to use character assassination to discredit someone because they said something you didn't like.

    Your second comment showed it even more.

    It's basic psychological response when you identity is challenged and it is done in way that it makes sense so instead of accepting you find a way to discredit the source so you can ignore what was said.

    In spiritual terms you believe you wield power and are powerful and have the right to use that power as you will regardless of who it harms without having to face any repercussions or without reaping all that you have sown.

    In applying synchronicity to the engagement between you and I it would show maybe it's time for Phil to think about not talking shit about people when you disagree, maybe instead you should ask questions and remember that true learning happens in experience not in study.

    I am master only of myself and I train people to be the masters of themselves.

    Is there another level you want to connect on Phil, I can connect on all of them. It's what a Shaman does. Totem of the Frog or shifting levels of consciousness like most people breath.

    @Max🐝 J. Carter, thanks again! You have given us a lot to ponder. Despite being employed by beBee, I still really enjoy LinkedIn and am very active over there as well. However, since we are pointing out differences between the two platforms, I thought I'd mention the following. In 2014 and 2015, I wrote well over 100 posts that produced 2-million page views on LinkedIn. To say I went all in would be selling it short. Despite my many contributions and being a HUGE promoter of LinkedIn, I never once heard from a LinkedIn employee in the comments on my posts and most of the times I reached out to support I got ignored or a canned response, "this is a known issue. No ETA for resolution." Here on your post, you have heard from both founders of the company, one employee, and a brand ambassador. To me, that is a huge difference that is worth pointing out. On beBee, you will find the employees to be very engaged, and the executives to be in tune with user feedback whether positive or negative. I can't say I have seen anything like it on other platforms.

    John, I really like the wolf analogy in regards to values, very thought provoking. As I have looked back over my own career with an objective eye I was surprised by how few actual Leaders I've worked with, but were instead nothing more than managers. They didn't inspire me, more often than not, I inspired them. Too often it was about getting what they wanted out of their people rather than guiding their people. I guess I never realized just how often leadership was lacking.

    Excellent read John Whitehead with powerful message. There is always a struggle inside us between our two self. Our good 'self wins if we nurture it with love, compassion, empathy and similar other nutrients. And our good 'self' comes out stronger if we get these nutrients right since our childhood when our urge to consume and absorb is more.

    ENTRY IN THE @Kevin Pashuk CHALLENGE: This piece by @Gerald Hecht speaks for itself, as does Gerry's other work. But when I have to speak about Gerry, this is what I say, " Gerald Hecht has shown himself to be not only a paradigm of the 'Mad Scientist', but someone of intellectual courage and integrity, who cares deeply for the true values of science and academic activity."

    Hecht, I always knew that if Pirsig and his ADD stream of unconsciousnessness were ever to be reconstructed, it would be by some psychedelic pathfinder from Loosiannna marauding across the countryside on a motorcyle he had just rebuilt, listening to Keith Richards bangin' away. Or not. Just wondering, and glad to have you surface here. Cheers!

    #31 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich Finally, after a half century, I have received a medical diagnosis. Runner's Dystonia. It took about a week to figure out the spiritual meaning. I have. I really was born to run. The problem is now solved !

    #30 The search for biological laws is probably useless. The body is built to adapt, and some will do so under very harsh conditions with aplomb. The problem is that we really don't know in advance who can survive extensive drug regimens and who will drop out very early in the race...... Same with weight an extra 20 lbs can put someone on the verge of serious issues and another person can be 100lbs overweight with less biological stress based on starting points and heritage and the food substrate used to gain those pounds..... everything in biology has thousands of inputs to any given dis-ease output.

    I bet Candice has already gotten Keith Richards attention. But since you brought him up, @Gerald Hecht, we are just going to have to go back to the drawing board on some of our health theories, because he disproves everything ever said about healthy living & I like that!

    #22 Humor breaks things up. It allows us to get to know others better as well, that's part of life. All work and no play makes for cranky people ;-) So, I agree @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, I'm glad people are able to be themselves and show their fun sides as well on here.

    You, @Jim Murray are the best mentor (of the double secret zen master type), I've ever had; and a month with no response is (for me) worth about five years of "relentlessly driven, and determined dedication to master a subject" in a university program.

    How much will the equity of our beBee Ambassadors be worth?
    How much will the equity of our beBee Ambassadors be worth? Now that Linkedin has been bought by Microsoft it is time to compare and calculate how much the equity of beBee's Ambassadors could be worth in the future.Just in case you still don't know anything about it, beBee is the first social network that is...

    Always an interesting buzz for the new crop of Brand Ambassadors to see! Let's keep attracting new members and making them feel right at home in the hives so that they stay actively engaged. Both aspects of growth are equally important to beBee's ultimate success.

    All is fine Juan Imaz, but I guess some thing is wrong with the color of the beBee logo .. The brand may suffer because of the color .. I don't have a solid reason to offer .. I will explain my hunch later
