Comments23/09/2016 #22 Sara Jacobovici#20 It's perfectly OK @Randy Keho to "just say" and that's one of the points of this discussion; what we say and what words we use to say it. Using quotes that inspire us to develop our original ideas or support or reinforce our original perspectives is one way to just say it. Always glad to see your contributions to the discussion Randy.23/09/2016 #19 Sara Jacobovici#18 I would venture to say @Pascal Derrien, that it's about 50% of all. I can not deny that we started our life relating and communicating non-verbally. We then developed the words to utter and put down on stone, paper, screens, that would communicate and express our thoughts and feelings. I think without our non-verbal maternal language, we wouldn't be able to interpret words. What do you think?23/09/2016 #16 Chas Wyatt#15 @Sara Jacobovici, I thank you for tagging me, and although I love the song by Neil Young, "Words", I am actually more interested in the hive you started, "Tree of Life", and the reasons for that will become apparent at a later date. I was going to try and limit the hives I belong to, but, everytime I turn around there is some new hive that piques my interest for some reason, or another and I have already exceeded my self-imposed hive limitation. I have a lot on my plate right now with several unfinished projects, but, I appreciate your mention.22/09/2016 #10 Deb HelfrichPerhaps the real saying needs to be that CONTEXT is King. The internet is a virtual smorgasbord and it is up to each of us to be the curator of our own experiences and that starts with being aware of the nutrients of meaning and significance within what we partake of.
A fantastic idea, @Sara Jacobovici, to share what speaks to us and to contextualize why it does so in order to dive deeper into meaning.22/09/2016 #9 David GrinbergKudos on the new hive, Sara (which I've shared on three other hives). You cited one of my favorite Einstein quotes @Sara Jacobovici. The full quote reads (for those unfamiliar with it):
"Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
cc: @Franci Eugenia Hoffman: a good feature for "Hive Talk"22/09/2016 #6 Aurorasa SimaI joined. Not having read the other comments yet a quick comment: I believe memes and to parts also quotes without self-written text, for instance on a site like twitter, have the meaning of the person who sees them only. The simplest example would be tweeting (when Bernie was still in the race) a critical meme of Clinton and winning 12 new Republican "friends". So I believe, yes, depending on the site or even on any site a quote or meme shared without context (supposed we say nobody analyzes the whole timeline) will be understood at the viewer´s discretion.
I just saw a SpongeBob identity theft 1-liner meme. A security expert will see a warning about identity theft, someone else will see a joke, a third might see a message that the poster is poor.22/09/2016 #4 Sara Jacobovici#2 Very thought provoking comment @Phillip Hubbell. I need to think about a couple of things. First, although I agree about the art of saying a great deal in a few words, I'm not sure that many words is necessarily a bad thing. Second, I think there is a distinction between complicating matters and complexities. Like I said, lots to think about. Thank you for your comment.

Comments17/06/2016 #25 Randy KehoAll Linkedin ever did for me was link me with people I already knew, once knew, or never wanted to know. I refuse to be a part of Facebook. I don't want to see everybody's vacation pictures. And, what or who I'm doing at the moment, is my own damn business. Why broadcast it? I use Twitter to be alerted to what the criminal element is up to in my neighborhood or to get an updated score of a ballgame. I've only tweeted twice. BeBee has allowed me to correspond with people from all over the world on subjects that are of mutual interest, both personal and professional, and the myriad of content has awoken my senses.

Comments14/06/2016 #15 Phil FriedmanOkay, you guys. Here's a story for you. Shortly after my wife and I sailed to the US from Canada, we took a side trip to Disney World. My wife is a Canadian, so when we wanted to see this movie there on China, we queued up politely., quite close to the door. Waited about 20 minutes. Finally, they opened the doors to let the crowd in, and everybody began streaming into the theater. But not my wife. Although just to one side of the door. she was transfixed as 500 people streamed in. Finally, I said to her, "Come on, let's go in, what are you waiting for?" And she replied, "Well, for someone to stop and let us into the line." Bingo! I will be joining this hive, for as I have said, Canada is my spiritual home.14/06/2016 #10 Pamela L. WilliamsWell all you Canucks, I think this is fabulous, Now, maybe you'll translate all that Canadian terminology and share it in the Cultures Around the World hive. I think the Canada hive is important because people relate "North America" to the U.S. and we should show the world the differences in our cultures. So tell the world how we differ!

Comments23/06/2016 #44 Charles David Upchurch@Ali Anani I will share this concept with Social Scientists. While you did not use these terms, beBee hives (since they are all open groups) could serve as research fishbowls.
The downside of such fishbowls is that the inhabitants may behave differently there from how they do in their natural environments.14/06/2016 #43 Ali Anani#41 OLA to your great comment Sara @Sara Jacobovici. This is fascinating writing "The awareness will be reflected in the explanation, not as a reaction but as the process of sensory to cognitive, feeling to thoughtful". I love your comment and you and Jean @Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMC got me thinking all day long. Your reference to the paradox, @Sara Palomino Vidal, is a great discovery for me and I hope to read your mind about it.14/06/2016 #42 Ali Anani#40 Jean @Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMC- your writing " I would add we should also observe what they observe in order to respond to their needs as a business would a customer.: is he culmination of my pleasure. You are spot on. In one of my posts I wrote "don't show bees the red eye" because bees don't see it. Yes, we need to do exactly what I quoted from your brilliant comment.14/06/2016 #41 Sara JacoboviciI have often said in many comments to your pieces @Ali Anani that my comment is based on what came up for me in the first read. Now I return to write a comment based on my third read. As you and others that have read my work know, I am sensory and paradox obsessed. I have found a sensory paradox in your Buzz Dr. Ali that deserves further exploration. You write, "Observation is more than just seeing and hearing as it includes all our senses. Reflections can be deceptive and we should be careful in "explaining" them." The challenge of this paradox is, as always, awareness; not only do we have to be aware of what we are observing through our different senses but that our observations are perceived in a very subjective way. The awareness will be reflected in the explanation, not as a reaction but as the process of sensory to cognitive, feeling to thoughtful. You also wrote,"Bees in the dark and they use other senses to observe each other." This reinforces that we can not afford cut ourselves off to receiving information based on an assumption that we are restricted. You again embed an important Call To Action in your work:" Sound businesses have a rare opportunity to observe, learn and adapt." OBSERVE, LEARN AND ADAPT - its acronym "OLA" , I hope, will be appreciated by our Spanish speaking co-hive habitants.14/06/2016 #40 Jean L. Serio, CPC, CMCThank you for another fascinating post, @Ali Anani. Not to mention the excellent lesson on bees. I wondered, as I read it, if bees see color. And so you encouraged me to discover whether they do. Turns out they do see certain colors. Plus scientists are very interested in what colors they see; and in fact have amassed more info on color bees see than any other living thing. We can relate this, as you do, to businesses and customers - to what they see and don't; and how to train them (so to speak) to see what we want them to see and buy. Should we use color to do this in the retail environment? It has definitely worked for me over my years in retail.
As one would guess bees see different colors than humans do. Which made me consider your statement ""We need to not disturb the bees by overly observing them. We need to observe what we observe and reflect upon". I would add we should also observe what they observe in order to respond to their needs as a business would a customer. And that would certainly ring true when it comes to adding content to 'hives' on beBee. You have definitely put me on the road to discovering more about bees and how they really can be related to business and life. Thank you once again Ali Anani for a most excellent post!14/06/2016 #29 debasish majumderGreat post sir Dr. @Ali Anani, Phd. your analogy of human spectrum is unique. though light travels faster than sound, but in case of human beings, it is sound which have immense impact, enabling to visualize matter, apparently not existing. phenomenal your rendition and the buzz you produce, capable to attract lot of bees to the hive, which truly mean business! thank you very much sir for sharing such lovely insightful post.14/06/2016 #27 Franci Eugenia HoffmanI feel more warmth in the comments on beBee and not the seemingly structured comments on LinkedIn. Not that the LI comments were insincere or not worthy, but it appears some are hesitant to speak freely. Relating to the hives, they are what we make them. It is up to us to create and support the hives of our choice. Where else can we be as creative as we want to be? I created Hive Talk to promote, not only the idea of hives, but individual hives as well. We need to support and promote hives that we prefer because otherwise they will lose their waggle.

How to manage those who are willing to join the 'dance' but they feel shy, they feel nervous or they are afraid of being caught wrong.

I don't mind if they produce less with rich contents. I even don't mind if their contents are not so rich. I invite them just to participate and be more than a silent spectator.

Williams, @Qamar Ali Khan and @Anees Zaidi Close12/06/2016 #48 Anees Zaidi#43 @Ali Anani so it comes down to a matter of choice. What one wants to 'be' - a 'free bee' on a discovery journey crossing different paths or a 'disciplined bee' moving on a predefined path. I am happy with both as it a matter of 'personal' choice. No intrusion in 'personal' matters :))12/06/2016 #46 Pamela L. WilliamsAh, but Ali, who is to determine what words are appropriate; the asker or the one being asked? The asker may believe they are being careful and respectful but the one being asked may have sensitivities that the asker has no knowledge of. That is a barrier I have encountered before and it was an extremely uncomfortable situation. it is a precarious road to travel. #4412/06/2016 #45 Anees Zaidi#42 @Pamela L. Williams now your amazing mind has bring in a very interesting subject to think, discuss, deliberate and share. Our multiple identities and different lenses used by others to look at on us. We better keep it for some other time as there is lot in it to chew and consume.12/06/2016 #43 Ali Anani#41 Dear @Anees Zaidi- some people start writing with a goal in mind. These people are very focused in their writing. Others see writing as discovery journey and new paths and possibilities emerge. Each one has its merits. The styles is different. So, I believe that we may write a post and then decide where to post it, or if focused from the beginning then the most hives may be decided. It is a two--ways traffic. By the way I have noticed that @Pamela L. Williams has responded to your comment, but with all honesty I shall read it only after posting this comment.12/06/2016 #42 Pamela L. WilliamsIn your example Anees, it could actually go into more than one hive and that is the reason that beBee allows 3 choices when you create honey. It would be of interest to: Travel, Art, and perhaps we should have a Global Cultures hive in which bees could share special information about their culture but also those that they encounter on travels such as your trip to Turkey. Dean @Dean Owen's posts with this trips around Asia would fit into this category. Or @Lada Prkic post on the Croatian cakes that are such an important part of that culture. Just my thoughts! I happen to love the diversity I encounter on social media; Fascinating to me but sometimes I'm afraid of offending if I ask too direct a question about their country, religion, ceremonies, etc. #4112/06/2016 #41 Anees Zaidi#36 @Pamela L. Williams your excellent example of 'a wildly wonderful scientific discovery while on vacation' is the reason I say 'write' before you select a 'hive' unless the subject matter is a specialized one or has got inspiration from the contents in a specialized hive. Here I give you a hands on example. Suppose I convert my lengthy comment at #21 in response to @Ali Anani comment at #11 to a post, where should I register it. In a Travel Memories Hive, or a Philosophy of Life Hive or Work of Art Hive? When I started writing it I don't have any specialized subject/content in my mind. I just kept writing, re-writing, erasing and again re-writing until I could give logical and understandable shape (seeing from my eyes and to the best of my ability) to my thoughts. In the process I took the help of different fields of studies to help make my work relevant, understandable and worthy to consume. Thereafter I leave it to the best judgement of my readers to evaluate it, reject it or accept it, like it or dislike it, store it (in the Hive of their choice) or discard it. That much freedom I must have.12/06/2016 #36 Pamela L. WilliamsQuite right Qamar and it is part of what @Javier beBee was trying to say in a recent post he made. I believe that since this is an Affinity network where both our business and personal interest are both relevant that we must maintain the stance of keeping them in the relevant hives; As an example; I don't want to read about vacations in the Science and Research hive unless a wildly wonderful discovery was made while on vacation! #33
