    That's it. No more listening to Queen songs from now on! Jokes aside, I'm glad that there is some serious research on that matter. It would be interesting to see if there is a way to void the effects of mercury during the early stages of the disease or perhaps even find a way to make someone immune to this toxic substance.

I think that, perhaps, "lashed out" is a bit on the strong side when talking about my very last point in the piece... which was more on the order of a pretty mild reminder concerning what marketing is all about, namely, reaching new potential users and not just talking around the water cooler. But the image of me in a positivity headband with a unicorn horn is, um, frightening.

    You raise some challenging thoughts in the growth of Bebee. I am new to social media and not quite as active as most. But my experience with LI and now Bebee has shown me some of the same challenges you/comments mention. Bebee will face some headwinds as it grows and develops its user base, specifically the affinity aspects. More challenging writers such as yourself are seeking a higher level of interactivity that can be refined through management tools, where someone like myself just enjoy the affinity aspects of the site.

    Each social media site at some point will have to monetize its efforts. I enjoy the VC money at this point in creating the free and affinity network, but all good things come to an end. Javier will have his hands full when he begins the monetization of the interface. I do believe that some of your suggestions would aid in this transition. The groups could offer the value needed to transition. The larger question, is there enough value left after transition, to support Bebee?

    How Bebee positions itself within the users will define its competitive advantages.

    Hahaha "the frequent charge that you´re too positive". (; too positive to be doubtful?

    This article is spot on. And at least you lashed out at the ineffective ambassadors - I was about to buy you a colorful Power of Positivity Headband with a Unicorn Horn.

    I like the idea with closed groups. I feel more intense discussions between like-minded (yep, I said it) would be possible that way.

    Regarding Ambassadors. You do have a point. Most of us could do more to attract new people to beBee and we sometimes forget to consider what is best for beBee. I will add to the challenge: It´s one thing to attract people to come - but we also need to make sure that they want to stay.

    #98 Gerry, it doesn't matter where ultimately the money came from. The point is that they guys who did the work did not have to let their children go without shoes and they did not live on beans and gruel in order to bring the service of the internet and the worldwide web to fruition. If what you are saying is that you are personally prepared to put out the enormous effort and large amount of time required to build and manage a major group of the type I've referred to, the more power to you. Personally, I still have to work to make a living, and so do not consider it building a major group a real possibility, without some way of monetizing the effort, at least to some extent.

    #96 Ian, if I understand you, you are suggesting that you have materials (courses, texts, etc.) that you want to market through beBee. I think you can do that now, except you have to do your own marketing or hire an independent to do it for you. I also understand that you want beBee to endorse your material (a kind of peer review, although not quite) and market them to the beBee user base. Correct me if I've misunderstood.

    First, I am not at all sure that the expertise exists in-house to evaluate and "certify" such products for sale, and even if there were, I bet the costs would add prohibitively to the retail price of the products. Second, I think what you are proposing would move the platform away from "volkspublishing" and create conflicts of interest that would undermine the openness and universality of beBee.

    I personally think that beBee can very well remain a neutral vehicle. For example, I recently launched a writing improvement program, which I am marketing on various social media platforms, including beBee. ( http://www.learn2engage.org ). BeBee has not evaluated it, and does not endorse it. I depend entirely on testimonials and my own experience and work samples to legitimize it. And I think that is the way it should be.

    But hives (groups) are to my mind another matter entirely. Note that my suggestion to create a path to monetizing the creation and management of large groups does not involve beBee in judging which groups to "endorse", but only to provide a level playing field for development and promotion, and a structure for monetization. BeBee could then let the audience (the market) decide which hives it wants to join, and leave it to, for example, the advertisers to decide which space is worthwhile buying. As I said, pretty much like the situation with special-interest magazine publishing. Thanks for reading and commenting. Some very interesting thoughts.

    Here's a thought @Phil Friedman There are many talented individuals contributing to beBee at the present time. I would suggest that beBee consider establishing a platform where individuals could contribute their expertise (courses, texts etc) to a captive market (the beBee community) sharing those interests. The managers of the platform would review the individuals and their products for value and authenticity. As an extension, the platform could control the flow of revenue - payments into beBee Product Trust Account and release once product successfully sold/implemented. From a personal perspective I would trust product reviewed by the beBee Management and would be happy to pay in. Conversely I'd be happy to sell my online program at a preferential rate through beBee and pay the management/administration fee. This would be a giant step towards a University of Life, mutually beneficial with organic growth possibilities. This is honest, value-based revenue befitting the zeitgeist of this moment.

    Xander, I do see this kind of pattern among the college students I work with. It is not the stereotype of the millennial that I focus on, but that there is a distinct difference in the worldview of this particular generation, and the newest generation has its own traits that come from their exposure to the world of mobile. I already see my grandson bottle fed on a smartphone - and these environmental and social differences do permeate into an overall generational worldview. I still look upon people as one-to-one because the best students I work with do break the mould - and they need to be respected for who they are, rather than as a "millennial" label.

    #2 Sound advice however I am not a religious man so for me I look at it this way.

    Why me?

    Why here?

    Why now?

    I find answering those questions makes me slower to speak and helps me understand any anger that might be present and better express it.

    Similar concepts, different paths and that is OK.

    #1 I agree. Honesty is a great this, yet everything that comes froms our mouth should do so with love. “…let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.” (James 1:19)

    Four Tips for expressing yourself:

    Think before you speak. “A man has joy in an apt answer, and how delightful is a timely word” (Proverbs 15:23)
    Not everything you are feeling needs to be expressed. Sometimes silence is best
    Ask to make sure you are being understood
    Speak in a way that encourages. “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” (Ephesians 4:29)
    Max Carter
    30/11/2016 #1 Max Carter
    I have found recently the biggest response to honesty is to be labeled as negative by those who do nit appreciate honesty as it usually pops their delusional bubble. They use the word negative to absolve themselves fro feeling any guilt over they way they will now treat you with emotional abuse tactics because you are too honest for their comfort level and the only way they can tell themselves it;s OK is to label you as negative.

    "Any tendency towards unity and sublimity carries with it a certain degree of disturbance. We are our own conscience, if so discomfort is always transient in nature. When we are an authentic self-similar whole, only then a neutral equilibrium is possible." - from "I'll be Back, Innovation in Self Leadership", LI long-form post published on May 5, 2015

    Propoganda is rarely factual. Cold hard cash is always factual. I specialized in working the loop holes and exploiting the system to my benefit, and Canadian medi-tourism was one of my most successful revenue chanels for 7 years, the other was security evaluations / fraud investigations for HIPPA compliance. There was not a month go by that I did not have Canadians coming down for treatment. That precedence and experience is what led me to unternational health care. Travel Med / Medical Tourism OUT of America has only grown since the imposition of Obamacare: as well as the number of ex-pats and people that have surrendered their citizenship. ObamaCare is so unpopular that I help clients get to the Philippines, India, South Korea and before the war - Ukraine for services and coverage. And they are going to commercial, pay for cure specialists and locations- not the shining path of Soviet Socialist State medical malaise. I am hoping with Trump in office I can turn on my Russian market models and retire to the Black Sea. (There is surprisingly more capitalism in Moscow Ru than Washington D.C. )

    #25 Brian, speaking bluntly, that is the bullshit propaganda of those who made a dollar off the activities that you outline. I know of hordes of U.S. citizens who beg to be able to buy drugs in Canada, where the pricing is tightly controlled in a single-payer system. I lived and worked in Canada for more than 15 years, and I can tell you that neither I nor anyone I knew in that time went without or waited for critical medical treatment. Nor do I know anyone now in that position. Elective procedures might involve a scheduling wait, but I gotta tell you, buddy, that the same thing is true here in the U.S. when you're trying to deal in-network on your insurance coverage.

    The big difference is that to cover my family with a decent plan currently costs nearly $1,200 per month, and does not include me (as I am medicare substitute covered) for another $250 per month. Versus the less than $300 per month, I would be paying to OHIP if I lived in Ontario for equivalent coverage. It's not just government subsidies from general tax revenues involved, but the advantages that accrue to a single-payer system that puts price negotiating power back on the side of the consumer, and works to mitigate the rapacious greed of MediBusiness.
