Comments23/07/2017 #26 Lada 🏡 PrkicThanks Gert for taking the time to make this impressive list of busiest bees on beBee Producer. But we can't see what's behind these numbers. The quality of the posts and engagement on these posts are something more important than a pure quantity metrics.
However, many authors achieve both quality and quantity, and they deserve our deepest respect. To me, you are one of them.23/07/2017 #20 Chas ✌️ Wyatt"Once upon a time we were just plain people. But that was before we began having relationships with mechanical systems. Get involved with a machine and sooner or later you are reduced to a factor." ~Ellen Goodman, "The Human Factor," The Washington Post, January 1987.23/07/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#8 I totally agree with @Paul Walters that it is not just about more and more and more, there is a personal choice involved for those who choose it and here quality of life may be a choice or quality of learning (and there are people who renounce material things - though please, I still personally want quality of life as well as quality of learning). We are still predicated on thinking we are teaching others, when the process of teaching is the learner. This is a quite a paradox as to what education is, but one I do most welcome. That is why I think personal brand is a joke where I can see right through people. I get to see what I want to see, which is the soul of being, and not the sale of a person. Success is an illusion we paint in our minds, but to measure our life in terms of meaning - then I become a bee who believes in being - "TO BEE WHAT IT IS YOU WANT TO BE".

I am going to add this to my "Chairing me on " https://www.bebee.com/content/1669229/1447709 The responses to this piece have helped me greatly. I would love to share this journey together. I would love to set up time to Skype or talk. Sending love and positivity...we always get to start over.22/07/2017 #8 Laura Mikolaitis@Shelley Brown, wow. I will be back to this post. For right now, I am absorbing and your words resonate. In the short term, know that you are not alone. I would bet that most of us wander - sometimes in fear, sometimes in wonder, and sometimes aimlessly. I know I have.
Those feelings. They are real. They can eat you up and spit you out. Or they can propel you forward. We are clay. We mold and we shall and we may not like the end result so we start over. New chapters are always there. The trick is figuring out out why. But I barter to guess you know yours deep down.
Thank you for this timely post. It hits hard this morning and I feel very fortunate for having read it. Thanks for being so honest. We can share in the journey together, if you'd like.19/07/2017 #5 Charlene NormanNone of us has any freaking idea what we are doing. Not one of us. Some of us have plans. Some of us don't. The only thing that is certain is one day we will die. When that day comes, some of us will say, I made a plan, I followed it and something happened. Some of us will say, I did not make a plan and nothing much happened.
Shelley, take a baby step and make a plan. Try it out for six months. If it works out, fantastic. Be grateful and amazed and make a new plan. If it does not work out, be grateful and amazed and make a new plan. Never give up. The answers have always been deep inside of you. And by the sounds of it, you have a mighty fine friend who will walk with you. Be grateful and amazed for that.
You are a very lucky woman. It might not feel like it. But you are. And you are stronger than you give yourself credit for. We all have short term pain for long term gain. Each and every one of us. It is what makes all of us frail human creatures and fascinating beings.19/07/2017 #4 Jim MurrayI learned very early on that cold turkey solutions cause a lot of pain. Every significant thing I have done in my life was a transition. In fact I am in one now. What I did was take advantage of the fact that I was employed to look around at other opportunities, when one arose I would take it and make the transition smoothly. I don't want to sound like an old fart, but the stress of quitting without options is worse than the actually job. I know what you are going through, but if you throw yourself out of balance it can really hurt. Take an hour a day or every couple of days to look at the job market. Send out a resume. Make a call. As @Charlene Norman says...make yourself a system and stick to it for a while. What you will do is create a light at the end of the tunnel, which should ease your burden a bit, and give you a visible goal. Don't be sad about your situation. Get fucking excited for what the future could bring you.19/07/2017 #3 Renée 🐝 CormierYou already know the answer, @Shelley Brown. Feel the fear and do it anyway. Don't let the what ifs in life hold you back. None of us would ever get out of bed if we did that. Why, we could stub our toe, break a leg or get hit by a car! I don't know what it is you want to do, but I can tell you as someone who has sat upon the precipice of disaster more than once, believing in myself and trusting that the resources I need would appear helps a lot. You don't need to have all the answers or a full blown map to get you from here to there. Simply slay each dragon as you get to it.
Trust me when I tell you that if you allow yourself to get excited about the possibility and stay in that state of pure joy and eagerness, you will be fine. If you live each moment in fear and doubt, then you will struggle immensely. Oh, the stories I could tell you of the crazy life I have lived and the miracles that unfolded before my eyes. I am not special. I have not been "chosen". I am just who I am and if I can do it, so can you, sister. Message me any time for a pep talk. :)19/07/2017 #2 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThat is the most important feeling in the world. Stay with it. Stay in the feeling.
Really look at the cycles, look at what you want to call failure, which was in some ways and wasn't in others. Can you write a gazillion post-it notes to remind you of the wasn'ts?
Being in a crazy oscillation cycle, at this exact moment, I'm gonna tell you what I think one of the core tasks of life is the ability to live in calmness, a state of potently possible tranquility.

Just as you've done in wrapping up this piece, make sure to tie things up with a flotation device to hold on to, most especially when you've just dived to the depths.

Comments17/07/2017 #5 Lyon BraveI think you are jumping around in your interests too much. You are talking about how our bodies are out of sync, how time seems to be speeding up, how we are disconnected and have over reliance on technology. I just think this piece is kind of information overload and you could zero in on topics and add a little more detail to the themes you are discussing. You make claims like technological advances have resulted in labor saving devices for the home, which is true but you provide no evidence to back it up and you do that often. I think the idea of time poverty is fascinating and hope you learn to focus your writing. Where I stand i would have to go read more articles to find out more. I don't leave feeling like you are an expert..not sure if that's the point, but it probably is
I mean let's look at your opening paragraph. It's a fascinating mess I will give you that.. " in the last 150 years, however, the human relationship with time has radically changed. Some say the problems started earlier, with the development of agriculture or writing, but it was really the Industrial Revolution and the rise of the Machine that put humans in thrall to mechanical processes and machine time."
What's wrong with this is you can't mention 150 years like it was so brief. Can you show us some of the evolution? You just make claims, with no research or evidence, which is a shame because all you have to do is a quick google.
Remember: Your critique is your helper16/07/2017 #4 Geoff Hudson-Searle#2 Thank you for your comments Harvey, I agree, I think there needs to be a balance of email, social media and collaboration tools. What ever happened to picking up the phone? Talking to someone face-to-face? Or sending someone a card? Or do we not have time?
We need to examine our technology use to ensure that it isn’t getting in the way of our being sociable and getting the emotional support we need from the people who are closest to us, if we really want to preserve that ‘Special Relationship’
We need to put our phones away in social settings and consider making phone calls when we want to contact people instead of a series of brief texts, misinformed innuendos, and misleading interpretations.
We need to learn to check in less often and seek out face-to-face contact more often.16/07/2017 #2 Harvey Lloyd"However, it is possible for us to learn how to control our own uses of technology.”
Modern conveniences and technology have robbed us of the natural processes of marriage, family and social existance. I have always been one that thinks we should move towards something and not away from something bad.
Maybe splitting hairs but moving away from something always establishes a goal that is easy to obtain but unfulfilling. Choosing where you are going is fulfillment.
The synergies of the many can not be replicated by the one. Humans can create together technology or processes that grow faster than i can adapt as a single individaul.
I would suggest an experience that may help us reconnect to ourselves. The thirty day challenge. Pull your electric meter for thirty days. Take away your tech for this long and you will find your family, social and proffesional goals get realigned. Hint the first seven days are hell on earth.
Our experiment was for just short of 30 days when an ice storm took all of tech away for 24 days. Fun at first but after day three we found ousrselves unable to communicate without the whine of no tech to hibernate to.
Great thoughts and i would suggest that we dont leave tech but build something that is worthy of our time and effort, like our marriage or family.

Okay, I won't sting you anymore about your forthcoming Live Buzz, can't wait.
To answer your question about what's MY purpose on beBee? Well, that's easier than getting YOU to do a Live Buzz (oops, there I go again. My bad, sorry)..
My purpose on beBee, as one of countless other impressive and admirable brand ambassadors worldwide, is the following, call it my TOP 1O LIST:
1) Helping to grow this platform in the USA, North America and globally.
2) Producing honey on Producer.
3) Creating and sharing buzz in a variety of ways (blogs, updates, discussions, comments, live videos, photos).
4) Cross-channel pollinating my honey/buzz and that of other bees.
5) Boosting my personal brand to enhance success.
6) Making brilliant new personal/professional contacts (like you, for example).
7) Recruiting new and amazing potential ambassadors. Look out soon for a lovely young lady who is a Millennial entrepreneur in Paris.
8) Supporting, encouraging and motivating my fellow bees.
9) BEEing the best I can Bee through personal/professional self-improvement.
10) Doing everything possible to set a positive example via positive/civil discourse and constructive open dialogue about why this BEE the best social media startup in the world...VAMOS!!!!

Grinberg imagine a moment an external server analysis from the outside the social networks (quite a few software do that nowadays), then the patterns are set as a model of reference in another webserver that in fact can regroup the individuals, nodes, and map their interactions as workflows. Would it be difficult to model a predictive set of action , under the formula, If This Happens, then do that.

Comments12/07/2017 #27 David B. GrinbergMany thanks for your valuable comments, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. I hear you loud and clear. I'm not really comfortable behind the camera and was always a print journalist in former life -- never broadcast. However, I felt compelled to act by doing some Live Buzzes because this fantastic feature has been relatively dormant for almost a year! Also, as noted in my sunrise video (link above), anyone can do a Live Buzz without the camera on them and just show scenery and not even talk. @Andrew 🐝 Goldman, despite being so telegenic, just did a great Live Buzz which buttresses my point.
However, I do recall your Live Buzz, Paul, and thought it was very good. I'm thinking perhaps we should team up for a beBee Podcast to expand social marketing! If you or any other "radio bees" like this idea, please message me. Thanks again, Paul, for all YOU do. You are no doubt an invaluable asset to beBee who is most appreciated by all!
cc: @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA11/07/2017 #26 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian#21 I've done a couple, but I have a voice made for radio and a face to match. I'm not big on video and don't recall any obligation to make them. I do recall an Ambassadors' Call when they first came out. John said they were fun and we'd probably like to try them. I think that's when I did mine.
Too bad Live Buzzes aren't downloadable, otherwise they would be tweetable with autoplay11/07/2017 #25 David B. Grinberg#23 @Chas ✌️ Wyatt and @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador Your important insights and constructive feedback are appreciated, as always.
Chas: First, Vine was not the same as Live Buzz or other video streaming apps/features. Vine only allowed Twitter users to share very short videos of about 10 seconds which then ran in a loop. Second, live video streaming is certainly not for everyone, just as blogging is not for everyone. Third, Live Buzz is nonetheless an excellent social media feature to have available -- for which @Javier 🐝 beBee and his team deserve much praise. Fourth, I could certainly understand why you might not be impressed with my own personal live videos. This is because I am not telegenic and have always been a print media person, not an on-camera guy. Yet many others have done excellent Live Buzzes which are instructional, informative, educational and good viewing. Lastly, the fact is that online video, including live video, is the leading social media trend as noted above, in the future of online digital communications. Thus, while I certainly respect and value your feedback, I also respectfully disagree with it. Thank you for considering these points, Chas, and keep buzzing. Your contributions to beBee are exemplary and always appreciated.11/07/2017 #24 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador#21 Thank you for the clarification of your statement and your video of the beautiful sunrise. I understand your enthusiasm for the live buzz feature and kudos to those that participate but different strokes for different folks. My feathers were a bit ruffled over the word mandate but they're tidied back up now. You're a real gentlemen, @David B. Grinberg and an excellent role model for beBee. :)11/07/2017 #22 Chas ✌️ WyattI am going to be completely honest and perhaps go against the grain and maybe even ruffle a few feathers. What I've seen so far from the "live buzz" feature has me less enthralled about the feature than I was even about the concept. By the way, didn't Medium acquire Vine and then, shortly thereafter shut it down? That should be a warning sign to the "live Buzz" feature.11/07/2017 #21 David B. Grinberg@Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador @Aleta Curry Thanks for your valuable feedback Franci and Aleta (again). Rest assured that I highly doubt any ambassadors will be mandated to do a beBee Live Buzz. Frankly, the chances are slim and none -- and I'd put my money on none. However, I must have vicariously waxed back to my days as an editorial page editor and thus threw in something controversial to spark a constructive discussion on the issue. I get it that live video is NOT for everyone. Moreover, no bees should be forced to do anything against their will, whether their any ambassador or not. I clarify these points in -- what else -- my latest Live Buzz this morning with a beautiful sunrise. I hope you watch it and kindly consider engaging after hearing my clarification of that statement https://www.bebee.com/content/1643589/1429936#c3 @Javier 🐝 beBee @John White, MBA @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian11/07/2017 #18 David B.

Jokes aside, the Live Buzz can really be the game changer for many folks - imparting an edge in their career quest or in their plans for business expansion through a more revealing and direct interaction or in their quest for an audience that would both see and hear them. There is something deciding about seeing a person as he or she speaks - it affects perception and understanding at a deeper level. Reveals so much more than words.
That said, it sure would go against the spirit of voluntary participation and support that has become the hallmark of beBee - to mandate live buzzing for all Ambees. But yeah, a contest is cool and enticing :)
As privacy goes out the window in ohsomany ways, some good and some bad, it won't be long before all we can do to communicate is videochat or livebuzz.

Comments09/07/2017 #74 Louise Smith@Kevin Pashuk " I'm convinced that IT leadership needs to dramatically change how IT is delivered rather than being relegated to a costly overhead department."
I like this statement in the "About the Author " section. In Australia, like Canada, there are large tracts of sparsely inhabited land. From an education and mental/health point of view, it is difficult to provide services to people in these places (and often impossible). A teacher in a metropolitan or regional school, is more economical that one using an online teaching program. Also the technology is expensive and often below par. I live 8 km from Brisbane QLD CBD and I don't have NBN connected so how can a person who lives 800 or 1000's km away hope it will work well for them. This is starting to come out in the media here now. We trust the Government to make the best choice for the people but these days often they don't and worse is they don't tell us until they are forced to and it's too late.09/07/2017 #71 Louise Smith#21 @Don 🐝 Kerr it has it's basis in anthropology (Biological and Cultural mainly) In early societies, it was about survival. Everyone in the group clan or tribe, had to be unified and follow the same type of "normality" e.g. if a stranger came along initially they were perceived as a threat because they were different. You will know many stories about the stranger who lets their own tribe in to the new tribe's village take over or kill everyone to gain wealth and territory. It still happens today.09/07/2017 #70 Louise Smith#19 I know someone in their early 60's who has been going blind for the last 20 years and now is almost completely blind. She is learning new technology/software like SIRI but perhaps more versatile so she will be able to function and keep up with what is going on in the world. She will not have to rely on Braille which she doesn't know. It's really time consuming for her to learn but the benefits are worth it.09/07/2017 #67 Louise Smith#13 @David B. Grinberg " Is this abnormal thinking?" It depends, esp if there is a mental health condition ! And even then it's normal for the person with the condition ! But this is something that I come across with my clients very often esp with family relationships and processes. A person who grows up in conflict with constant anger, shouting, fighting, sulking, no apologies and no other role models thinks that every family operates that way and accepts that as "normal". It is a great revelation to people to find out that it is not true, usu as they get older and have different experiences. Then they have to reevaluate who they are and can develop positive self esteem. It is often very difficult to shake off these childhood patterns and values. And it takes a while of consistent therapy.09/07/2017 #66 Louise Smith@Kevin Pashuk "Side note: If you follow my writings, you will know that I quite often take a while to get to the point. For those of you who are new to my writing style, we are about to get to the meat of the issue." Superb placement in the blog at exactly that second I was thinking "What is this really about ?

- Producer04/07/2017Q&A@beBee with John WhiteImage credit: steveoatesblog - WordPress.com With Q@beBee, I ask some of the most interesting people on this network 7 questions. The result, unedited, is the most fascinating answers. Q@beBee is an ongoing series that gives us the opportunity to...
Comments05/07/2017 #12 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhatever the road that is paved to make life special, that is absolutely and unconditionally ours. John has learned what puts his life in flow and Sara's simple question reveals this life stream.
Personally the only answer I have as close as a definitive answer for is Question 6 and even there if I spend too long pondering about it my answer would steadily become more incoherent and I may begin to question my own choices. The question is what makes our answers sustainable and yet adaptable also to the ebb and flow of our life. I like that John has found his rock.
Whatever the house we build our house on, it is our own rock or as Matthew 7:24/25 says :
[ 24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. ]04/07/2017 #7 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#3 I am still looking, although that in itself is part of what I am passionate about - that spark of the new insight.
I think, like Sara, I am an integrator, but I am not, unless paid to be, a process-driven person. I am a catalyst seeker. I am constantly searching to for new things to integrate that just might ignite!
Which is part of what @John White, MBA is truly saying around being OK with a curvy path to finding our passions. It can often be a rocky climb, but what happens once it all clicks into place can change our whole outlook on life.
So, for me, I just keep on meandering and discovering and trying to build a fire from all sorts of disparate substrates.04/07/2017 #5 Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee"My advice for those in business is to embrace and work on their personal brand. Many times, people get so involved in their daily lives that they stop working on themselves. They stop learning, stretching, and expanding. This happened to me. I got content with where I was and stopped working on myself. As a result, I started heading backwards in my career. To make it business, stay hungry and keep developing yourself. Success doesn't come easily, but it starts by putting the best version of yourself forward every day."
So very true, @John White, MBA04/07/2017 #3 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee"It took me until my late 30's to discover my passions". Tis is an interesting issue @John White, MBA. I wonder at what age people find their passion. I found mine very early and that was chemistry. But, in my mid thirties, my passion change to applying my scientific background in studying human behavior. May be this is an interesting issue @Sara Jacobovici. I wonder at what age you found your passion.

Comments01/07/2017 #45 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#44 I was planning to devote my next buzz on a theme similar to the one you mentioned in your buzz @Tausif Mundrawala. In particular, you writing "Coming to space, even in a relationship if a partner doesn't give space to the other half than that relation won't survive for long". But then two other ideas emerged. So, if I forget please remind me in a week time.30/06/2017 #44 Tausif MundrawalaDefinitely we grow by taking simple steps today which would lead to a great success. Coming to space, even in a relationship if a partner doesn't give space to the other half than that relation won't survive for long. That space harnesses a place to grow within. If someone doesn't allows himself or herself the required space to grow after studying a subject or have undertaken a research than the hard work goes in drain as we have not provided that space to rest our mind. Each and every step leads us towards success as it improves us to achieve something big.

Comments07/07/2017 #119 Aleta Curry#107 I understand, @Ken Boddie, but though I experience this I don't seem to be as frustrated by it as you are.
I just skim through quickly when I first browse in to beBee and put articles I want to remember (and those I don't have time to read right then) into my Aleta's Reads hive.
Of more concern is the fact that I miss so much from my favourites. There's so much coming in now that I get fatigued before I've read through every single title in my feed.
I have to rely heavily on being 'tagged' by people who've just published something (the reason I happened upon this post, for example). Trouble is, some of my faves simply don't tag people. I feel a little presumptuous doing it myself, but I decided that being thought presumptuous by some was better than having people who are interested in my posts miss them.
So, I would like to see improvement in the area of being able to follow the posts of certain bees. Don't ask me what that would be; happily, I'm a user here, I'm not at the pointy end!03/07/2017 #114 Lance 🐝 ScoularI must have missed the tag notifications on this @Javier 🐝 beBee and @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador for which I thank you.
I have invested more than a substantial amount of time, effort, resources and a wee bit of money (my Scotts heritage bubbling to the surface) in 5 digitally based start- ups in here in Australia over the last number of years. All 5 have fizzled or died.
That's business, that's entrepreneurship.
I understand the concerns expressed by some in the comments below. I have had my own, and questions, conveyed personally.
On the basis of this post and communications received, I for one will continue to support the promotion of beBee for the foreseeable future and look forward to the platforms update.
In the meantime, here are some wise words from some wise ones.
Innovation opportunities do not come with the tempest but with the rustling of the breeze. Peter Drucker
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. Albert Einstein
Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is timing; it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles. Fultong J. Sheen
Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other. Walter Elliot
Leaders keep their eyes on the horizon, not just on the bottom line. Warren Bennis
The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil.

Who did precede the roman civilisation? Now LinkedIn is afraid that history repeats itself again.30/06/2017 #107 Ken BoddieI have been greatly impressed, @Javier 🐝 beBee, by the success of this great platform and cherish the many friends I have found here. I do, however, share some of the concerns of @Dean Owen (as set out in his various comments below) relating to the future. I continue to be frustrated by the increasing amount of time I have to spend trawling through posts with which I have little or no affinity, in order to find those I wish to read and pass comment on, and have tried many ways to limit my feed, but without much lasting success. I voiced my concerns in my posts of September and November last year as follows: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/fellow-bees-we-have-a-traffic-problem; and
From the subsequently received post comments it appears that many others are also having difficulty with their feeds and consequently are also missing posts from their favourite bees (Fbees). We were then, back in September, promised a great conceptual solution which you called the STING, but there has been very little more to come on this subject since, and the repeated promises of major change continue without fruition. Your above enthusiastic explanation is gratefully received, but perhaps this would be an apt time to reinforce, to your many devotees, a commitment to including the STING at the earliest possible opportunity? 🤔30/06/2017 #106 Jennifer 🐝 Schultz@Javier 🐝 beBee - As far back as our first Skype conversation, I have had no doubt that beBee will succeed in growing the platform. I am excited to see the new updates - but understand that it takes time to cultivate and grow any business with many peaks and valleys. I love how you keep us all included!30/06/2017 #105 Dean OwenEnjoy Namibia my friend. We are but a few travel writers in a sea of marketers so we are critical to helping the beBee feed attract your typical internet user who are simply here to enjoy and communicate. Writers and storytellers like you and the delectable Ken Boddie are precious and I will follow you both until the ink runs dry.30/06/2017 #104 Dean Owen#103 i would love to if I was certain beBee would still be around many years from now. I fear they have, and are making some major strategic blunders by focusing on building a platform with the content provider in mind where they need to focus on what your typical internet user needs and wants to see. I don't want to wake up some day and find my writings have dissapeared because the plug has been pulled. I need to feel confident that my articles will be there for my children to read many years from now. I hope they prove me wrong. I need beBee to succeed. As such, I sent them an email detailing all my concerns yesterday, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears.....29/06/2017 #102 Paul Walters@Javier 🐝 beBee I am deep in the Namib desert in Namibia and surprisingly I have a wi fi connection!
