Comments08/08/2017 #48 Ignacio OrnaYo también me imagino la escena del Bar, si porque aquí somos más de Bares y Restaurantes, que de Garajes. Y preguntando el uno al otro, así como quien no quiere la cosa ¿Y si montamos una Red Social, pero que sea Social? Y ahí radica la “petite différence” que distingue a BeBee, el ser Social haciendo y consiguiendo, entre otras cosas unir a personas afines. “¡Ay! ¡Bares que lugares tan gratos para conversar y tantas ideas generar!”07/08/2017 #40 José Luís CasadobeBee por sís sola no va a curar el alma, pero el contacto cálido que hay entre las personas y el saber que cuándo escribes algo seguro que alguién va a conectar con lo que piensas, con los sentimientos que transmites... eso ayuda un montón. Me alegro que beBee te haga sentir así, amigo @Francisco Jose 🐝 Paredes Pérez ¡Feliz inicio de semana!07/08/2017 #35 Ignacio OrnaEscribir sosiega el alma y calma el espíritu. Escribir relaja, apacigüa esa ira furibunda que está dentro de nosotros y la deja salir, dejándola que fluya para que se vaya muy lejos y se disipe en el éter. Tu escribes y describes muy bien tu situación. Además debes de estar y sentirte muy orgulloso por dar voz a quien no la tiene con un decálogo maravilloso para acercar al mundo a través de BeBee este pesar. Aparte de dar voz a quien no la tiene, me supongo que a veces hasta gritos y golpes en la mesa has dado también al ver a tu alrededor tanta incomprensión, tanta injusticia, tanta inmundicia y tanta maldad, lo cual te hace ser una persona maravillosamente muy especial y eso como dice Raúl Herrero, “A veces la vida nos da cosas que creemos una desgracia o un peso y luego resultan ser una cosa extraordinaria”. Y es muy cierto lo que Raúl dice que debes estar también orgulloso de tu familia y de lo que haces día a día por ellos y los demás.
Has elegido escribir como válvula de escape por ello yo también te digo igualmente que Raúl, que no dejes nunca de escribir y luchar. El mundo es para los valientes. “Nada consigue, quien nada hace”, decía mi abuela. Nada se consigue, si no se hace por mejorar lo presente, sin tener un objetivo claro. Como dice Kavafis en su poesía, no temas a los lestrigones ni a los cíclopes, ni al colérico Poseidón, seres tales jamás hallarás en tu camino, si tu pensar es elevado, si selecta es la emoción que toca tu espíritu y tu cuerpo. Ni a los lestrigones ni a los cíclopes ni al salvaje Poseidón encontrarás, si no los llevas dentro de tu alma, si no los yergue tu alma ante ti.
Sigue escribiendo y no ceses en tu empeño, escribir relaja y mucho por ello me he permitido ponerte aquí un enlace que espero te sea útil.

One night after work we brought beer into the office and the boss told a hilarious story about his brother-in-law who would take ANY dare and once accepted a dare to stick his ding-dong in an electric fan (yes, it was on at the time :) ) Apparently it ended in a highly bruised wee-wee and a huge amount of laughter from the staff. (Said BIL showed up a few months later and everyone went, "Hey, we know who you are! You're the guy who stuck his dick in a fan!" He was ready to kill our boss. :)
Oh yeah, the guys always got me to sing happy birthday to them in a Marilyn Monroe voice (it got to be A Thing after the first time) and once I did it over the office PA system. Oh, and we had a running joke about a senior network engineer being a pedophile (he wasn't, but that didn't stop us from saying it all the time, not even after he became our boss).
So, we were probably just as bad as you cocky cooks and shameful chefs, maybe even worse!

Well that was SOME article, Randall! But don't hold back...how do you REALLY feel about political correctness??? LOL
Living as I do in the heart of The P.C. Beast in Toronto, and being coming not only from the largely politically incorrect United States and the hideously, grievously, hopelessly politically incorrect IT industry (25 years now), I can laugh with you and pretty much agree with you and remember fondly one of the best jobs I ever had working for a small VAR (Value Added Reseller) of computers & networks in Hartford, CT.
It was THE most politically incorrect office I've ever worked in. But, we were a really tight team who got along really well and no one was a tightass. The shit we used to say to each other...and pull. We flirted with each other, told horrible stories that would have given the HR department many, many Maalox moments had we had an HR department (or any Maalox), and then there were the silly jokes we played on each other. Like sending the President home to his Boston office with a Depends pad snuck into his hard drive box, which apparently he opened in front of a customer and then snorted, "Those guuuuys!!!" (Some of us guuuuuuys were women :) )

As long as it not being used in a crude manner who cares?!! I once read an article this past year stating that people who use the F bomb during conversation tend to be of higher intelligence. I must have a pretty high IQ then - oh and you too LOL! People would be surprised how many Health Care Professionals that work with patients use the F bomb when away from the patients. Many off color jokes too because humor is necessary when you work in a profession that can have more down days than up and is very serious. I would imagine the stress of the kitchen could do the same on another level as you described quite well above.

Comments28/07/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe planet will destroy us even before human beings are even remotely close to destroying the planet. The planet has existed for billions of years before us and it will exist after the last human being is extinct. Extinction is a human concern but a part of the evolution of nature.
The elements of sharing we should be focused on is how it contributes to an Earth that creates abundance rather than scarcity and is sustainable for quality of life. The blend of sharing and ownership is an intelligent relationship. We are moving into a future where some societies will have a shortfall of jobs and that shortfall will be predicated on diminished value creation.
As long as the value of the sharing economy is a part of the whole, we can pursue this thinking intelligently as an integrated system. New forms of abundance will arise and that the challenge of living intelligently on the planet - in a way where we are intelligent to actual consequences and where we can adapt with imagination to create intelligent consequence.
If sharing negates value, it is just as extreme an option as a society predicated on value being lost to groups like the 1%.

Comments19/07/2017 #3 Jerry FletcherFatima, I'm reminded of a question my PhD daughter asked me, "Dad, why didn't you ever get your MBA?" My response was, "Honey, I didn't have time. I was too busy running advertising accounts and then you came along and life sort of got in the way. Besides, in my business I got a practical MBA because I had to understand all kinds of businesses." She brought that up last week when she was headed to New York and a meeting with a slew of other CIOs saying the reason she was invited was her ability to assess risk...practically.
Yes. You have to decide and it is not easy but education must stop somewhere because the need for practical experience must be met somewhere along the way. You and only you will know when it is time to leave academe. Stay in touch.19/07/2017 #2 Deb 🐝 HelfrichI agree with Manjit, @🐝 Fatima G. Williams, it is easy to offer easy wisdom from afar, but this decision has to be written deep within you.
Now practically speaking, since I know you are not shy, the partial doesn't mean you have to miss out on participating in the classroom via skype or google hangouts. You can ask to be partnered with a buddy onsite, who makes sure to set you up to participate in real time, virtually. Or perhaps even approach professors directly, so that they can actively include you in any discussions.
Or maybe, you can arrange for the partial for two years to be one full year onsite. Stating an empowering case for the learning and relationships that only happen in real life, guaranteeing the administration that with the additional year to arrange funds, you are prepared to work to be able to pay the second year's fee.
This sort of brainstorming is part of the entrepreneurial way, as is creating a winning pitch deck to explain the non-standard way you'd like to go about applying this scholarship.
Approach this dilemma from the vantage point of your future business-person self.19/07/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitSometimes the silver lining is not where we thought it was, other times we voice an objective so passionately that someone recognizes our passion but the world of academia and the world of entrepreneurship are not exactly parallel lines.
It is a splendid experience to have come so close to an Edinburgh MBA scholarship, and that effort was acknowledged by the lady who phoned and so this is bagged as a life experience. Entrepreneurship is not a road paved with success, there are some failures on the way which challenge an individual about persisting and moving on. Other times there is a temporary loss such as Steve Jobs losing his company when the Board parted company with him, only to find new roads which brought Jobs back to the original one he was on.
Resilience is what is key and perseverance is core, entrepreneurship tests a person in a very different way than an MBA does. How does one explain the number of entrepreneurs who preferred practical action rather than serving academic time?
Then are academicians who question the whole premise and value of an MBA education in an increasingly VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) http://www.mintzberg.org/blog/mbas-as-ceos and maybe only an MBA can come up with acronym like VUCA. It should not be me saying "don't give up", it should be one's own conscious saying "this is who I am".

Comments06/11/2016 #24 Jim MurrayOutstanding blast from the past. Quite vivid and Phil-like. Fort Erie Secondary School, where I did my time, was diverse in the fact that you were simply either Italian or something white. But we all got along. It's was more about personalities than ethnicity. But this was Canada in the sixties, after all... the white bread capital of the world. PS: My nickname back then was Bird, which was short for Birddog, as in 'Hey birddog stay away from my quail...' (Everly Brothers). The only fights I ever got into were over females.05/11/2016 #23 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#22 Agree Phil. Discussion is good. Reasoning is a beautiful process. Taking offence in a discussion is immature and so is denigrating a participant with offensive words and labels however presumptuous a pov. Truth should prevail and one must accept gracefully if one is wrong or does not have the proof to conclude a hypothesis. It doesn't belittle one's standing, for we are always learning! And there is always time to buikd one's argument. A discussion should drive one to seek more knowledge and not some kind of revenge. We have many beautiful minds and hearts right here Phil. And that is a rare thing indeed.05/11/2016 #22 Phil Friedman#20 Praveen. I never considered myself a victim of bullying, because I always knew it was within my power to act to stop the attempted bullying.
I agree with you, though, that people who are bullied often become bullies when they feel the touch of power. But that said, I think we must distinguish between tenacity in discussion and bullying. In intellectual circles, it is not bullying to argue in defense of one's views, as long as one does not resort to sophistry and ad hominem attack. Cheers,05/11/2016 #21 Paul Walters@Phil Friedman Oh the bullies , those with so many mental problems. We are witnessing one striding the world stage in one Donald J Trump. Hillary. little 'crooked' Hillary hopefully will deliver a knockout blow on Tuesday . As for prejudice , I have no tolerance for that. Whatever your race, or creed I personally really dont care, its whether you are a good person that counts05/11/2016 #20 Praveen Raj GullepalliThat is a real walk down memory lane dear Phil. And must have been like livin on the edge! Yup one always gets a guardian angel somehow! By grand design? You have got everyone talking about bullies now, even me, see? :) I had my share too at school...cos i was a quiet, shy, books-obsessed kid...things got bad...and finally one day, at break point i let loose... a single punch on the forehead of one that brought us both to the ground (chap still carries a bump on his forehead that somehow never went away even after 35 years!)..and a stinging slap that happened faster than I/eye could see or follow in the second instance..settled both bullying pains for good. In both cases l was actually getting bullied for being protective of someone else! :) Bitter past experiences can make bullies of the bullied once they grow into independence and some authority. On social.media, it is far more easier to be a bully if one is armed with enough words and corporate jargon! But thankfully we have dear Kev to protect us if we are bullied! ;) I raise my hand if a BBC (Bully Bashers Commune) is being formed ever! Am so in.05/11/2016 #17 Phil Friedman#10 Milos, thank you for reading and commenting. I am, however, not sure that what you say about children is true. I think we need to not conflate guilelessness (which is a trait of childhood) with commitment to truth (which is more often an adult obsession). Cheers!05/11/2016 #16 Phil Friedman#9 Richard, your three points are right on. But here's the thing. I am not sure that all physically and otherwise aggressive people are bullies. I think Renee is correct that a common trait of bullies is that they are cowards at heart. There are, however, I believe some small percentage of genuinely aggressive battlers, who are all for a fair fight and prepared to slug it out, and take the consequences, whatever they may be. They are the people you truly want to avoid. Thanks for reading and commenting. Have a Blatz on me, and send me the tab.05/11/2016 #15 Phil Friedman#4 Renee, I never thought of my teenage years as anything other than existential hell. But it's easy to forget that and to idealize "how things used to be", as the writers of Happy Days did. There is also no doubt that social media presents as a game changer for the worse --- much worse --- among my daughters and their contemporaries. Thank you for reading and commenting. Cheers!05/11/2016 #14 Phil Friedman#3 Randy, I think that one of the things our passivity-oriented society fails at teaching is the up-close reality of violence. I've known some fairly tough guys over the years, but most of the "normal" guys I've known, realize after the first couple of punches are thrown, that fighting is not such a great idea. Boys used to learn about strutting, shoving, pushing and cursing --- which actually gave them outlets for avoiding fights. And I've found that women, who grow up without learning those displacement behaviors, can be ever so much more focused in their drive to wound. Not PC, but I think true.05/11/2016 #13 Phil Friedman#2 Thank you, Kevin, for reading, commenting, and especially for saying out loud that you will watch my back. For while it shows grit to do so, I believe that in current circumstances, it shows double or triple the grit to say so out loud. My thanks and best to you.05/11/2016 #12 Phil Friedman#1 Thank you, Don, for reading and sharing. And for the kind words. Among boys, tall, thin guys often become targets for bullies. Because nominally they are "big", but actually are slight and present much less of a counter-threat than huskier guys. Which is much to a bully's liking. Cheers!05/11/2016 #10 AnonymousMy opinion is that children and young people are very often much more brutal than adults. It is very often confusing given that adolescence brings with it so much beautiful human characteristics. Children love to play; their game is a fascinating evidence of commitment to truth. Children are inexhaustible source of some of the most wonderful wisdom. Nevertheless, fragments tend to become scattered with time and due to the accumulation of conflicting experiences. When we leave the past and when we are ready to share something deeply inner, about what we've been thinking for a couple of years, then almost transcendentally and in a specific way we will find a plan how to overcome fragments. Then, targeted interactions with people adds up all again. The problem is that most adults with years gradually lose the mind of a toy. Termination of playing is the ultimate sign of the beginning of stagnation. @Phil Friedman, Thank you for this brilliant article.05/11/2016 #9 Richard Buse@Phil Friedman Thanks for sharing this. I went to a working class high school in Milwaukee during the mid 1970s (when Happy Days was enjoying its highest ratings). My incident with bullying occurred during my sophomore year: I punched someone who’d been bullying me and then tackled him.
The teacher broke it up fairly quickly, but recounts of what happened got exaggerated and embellished to the point where a fellow student hung “Muhammad" on me as a nickname (Muhammad Ali was in his prime then). I never got bullied after that, but I also had mixed feelings getting that nickname and needing to punch and tackle someone to bring an end to bullying.
I’ve never been able to form any sort of precise narrative of my high school years, but I find myself thinking:
- Not everything about the good old days was good.
- Bullying has been an issue for a long time.
- I’m not sure I can even fathom the impact use of social media for bullying must have now.04/11/2016 #4 Renée 🐝 CormierBullies are cowards through and through. Back when we were younger we could fight back and it would be over. Even mild little me had to kick a girl in the shin to get her to leave me alone. Kids now have it tougher. The bullying has moved to cell phones and social media sites and it is relentless. Never mind that unlike our parents, we cannot encourage our children to get physical. It's really tough to be a kid now. Some things are easier for them, but a lot isn't. My own teen years were not very fun for me. I think for many of us, the music was the best part about being a teenager. Maybe it still is.

It is better to belong to something than to own everything.
To hate is to remember, to love is to forget.
All men should live in peace with one another whenever possible.
The most valuable thing you own is your heart. Guard it well.
Love is a curious madness.
Being happy is not automatically guaranteed, you have to work at it.
Joy is so deeply rooted in our souls that it is not tossed about by the waves of circumstance.
There is nothing quite so sexy as good old fashioned enthusiasm.
The benefit of being friends will vastly outweigh the benefit of being enemies.
There is no such thing as constructive criticism, do not criticize, encourage.
A worthy legacy is the irrevocable consequence of dreaming.

Comments14/07/2017 #9 Sandra Smith#6 Hi Jerry, Please take this as trying to be helpful - I had the same problem with YouTube vids - the background echo... My Windows machine did this - Unless I plugged in a mic. My Mac doesn't do this. Something to consider for next time, as unfortunately, people will just switch off if the sound is unlistenable - and you clearly have great content there.13/07/2017 #6 Jerry FletcherJim, I call them "Success Stories" Essentially the same information you suggest is what I include. Here are two videos that sum up the approach which I put in a blog in February , 2016: https://youtu.be/KM_lH2Eqrqo https://youtu.be/KPCU79FgXvE Note that in the video approach the data is the same but the presentation is ordered differently and stars the client.12/07/2017 #5 Jim Murray#1 Thanks @Pamela 🐝 Williams ...I was lucky enough to have gotten a ton of incredible advice when I left the agency world to go on my own. Denis Kane, who I mentioned was an account director at the last agency (DMB&B) where I worked full time. He left before I did and became my biggest freelance client, which helped me get my business off to a great start. He was definitely a visionary and pretty much invented the colour laser print as a direct mail tool.12/07/2017 #3 Charlene NormanAnd if you really want to stand apart, change the order to Result, Challenge, Strategy and Execution. The ones with ADD or short attention spans just want to know if you can deliver the results bloody fast. So show them that you've already done it a million times and ease their fears. You'll win the job 9 times out of 10

Comments15/04/2017 #12 Randall Burns#10 Thank You @Paul Walters, I appreciate your mention of Anthony Bourdain. Here is a very short post that illustrates my perception of him;
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/acknowledgement-appreciation-chef-anthony-bourdain-randy-burns15/04/2017 #11 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Randall Burns, I love your stories! So down to earth and relatable even though I'm not a chef. He sure did teach you a lesson the hard way but I'm glad you were able to look back and appreciate it. So sad that he died in a car accident with new things on the horizon (just hearing of the car accident made me feel sad). Be assured he's smiling down on you and poking others in a gentle manner with his paddle saying, 'Look, look... he's learned so much, I'm proud of him."14/04/2017 #1 Don 🐝 Kerr@Randall Burns So grateful that my paddle incidents have been so much more pacific. Strikes me (no pun intended) that not even Gordon Ramsay could get away with that shit these days but the kitchen is a different place. I've always been a fan of Anthony Bourdain - well, his writing anyway - and in those brief moments of sobriety he too could be 'motivating' and 'mentoring'. Great story Randall. Thanks for tagging me specifically. When I operated my own dessert catering business in the early to mid '80s the only person around whom I could paddle was myself which mercifully didn't happen too often!

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. Piece of cake IFTTT already does but is not capable to intricate sophisticated scenari of consecutive actions, any actions that netwroks, Internet protocols and API can perform. Do you think such AI entities exists yet or not?09/07/2017 #13 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador@Lance 🐝 Scoular is a great doer, @Gabriel Bazzolo too, @David 🐝 Martín Alonso got inspired and now is unstoppable...people might think it will be a temporary trend, things will pass...maybe, maybe not. What will happen if people strat to love doing or performing, then sharing on Hives but from My beBeeTV? How Youtube or Vine strated, why Whatsapps is woth 19 Bn $ pirchase. Because technology serve our Humanity, the way we are, but above all the way we DO.09/07/2017 #12 stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand AmbassadorIf people ask me why, my answer would be pretty much the same....see Kawasaki's words ...our founders didn't start beBee to make some quick bucks, but rather because they wanted to change the world...i think they were in a Rafa state of mind for a long time now, they defined themselves no by what they said or will say, but by what the did, do and will do. @Juan Imaz and @Javier 🐝 beBee Dare & Share the opposite of Cash and carry. Affinities. The system BB "sees" the clusters from a machine point of view and put each others together so we can perceive respective data. We sees things from a human standpoint, but it get never more stronger than when we do things!

Comments08/07/2017 #7 Jerry Fletcher#3 Don, In a quiet room that sound is magic. In most cases the participants don't hear the sound. They seldom consider the tactile sense of it. If I'vevdone my job properly they are rattling about behind their eyes to sort out a direction and a reason for thinking entrepreneurial thoughts. In my view, every business starts with one person wrestling with the idea. Moving from there to taking action is more difficult than almost everything that comes after.

Comments28/07/2017 #92 Numo QuestExcellent feed Kevin, very well put! As owner of NumoQuest® I can fully and wholehearted agree with how you put it here. Every human is unique, though there are similarities, like attract like, yes people may have similar interests, more and more, luckily, people are realizing that uniform basically doesn't exist. The major shift now developing is (wo)man in search of their natural born and true selves. Again, Masterly put. René26/07/2017 #87 Phil Friedman@Kevin Pashuk, over many years, I've learned that one of the biggest mistakes a marketer can make is to judge the preferences of the market by one's own. In my core business, I've often been asked, "What do you think of that boa?" My answer is, "Well personally ____, but remember my tastes and proclivities are not necessarily typical of the market."09/07/2017 #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.
