Hayles relates three interwoven stories: how information lost its body, that is, how it came to be conceptualized as an entity separate from the material forms that carry it; the cultural and technological construction of the cyborg; and the dismantling of the liberal humanist “subject” in cybernetic discourse, along with the emergence of the “posthuman.”

Ranging widely across the history of technology, cultural studies, and literary criticism, Hayles shows what had to be erased, forgotten, and elided to conceive of information as a disembodied entity. Thus she moves from the post-World War II Macy Conferences on cybernetics to the 1952 novel Limbo by cybernetics aficionado Bernard Wolfe; from the concept of self-making to Philip K. Dick’s literary explorations of hallucination and reality; and from artificial life to postmodern novels exploring the implications of seeing humans as cybernetic systems.

Although becoming posthuman can be nightmarish, Hayles shows how it can also be liberating. From the birth of cybernetics to artificial life, How We Became Posthuman provides an indispensable account of how we arrived in our virtual age, and of where we might go from here.

I was recently searching for a reliable backlink report source and came across SEOprofiler. And, boy, am I glad I did! Not only was their site easy to use, but the intelligence it offered by way of its comprehensive report was worth it! John Muehling, MobileHealthCareToday.com

SEOprofiler was the exact tool I was looking for. I tried about 10 other tools that tried to do what SEOprofiler did 100 times better. After analyzing the data from the reports I made a few simple tweaks to my site and I moved up to the front page of Google. Greg Tampa, GregTampa.com

SEOprofiler is great for site owners who are serious about their SEO efforts. Jeremy Moore, PCRepairShop.org

After evaluating all SEO tools, I chose SEOprofiler to be the core of my business operations. The best tools are the Top 10 Optimizer and the web-based white-label reports for my clients.

For over three decades, Ray Kurzweil has been one of the most respected and provocative advocates of the role of technology in our future. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he argued that computers would soon rival the full range of human intelligence at its best. Now he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine, in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity, speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.

Is Mobile Search More Than Just Being Mobile Friendly?

 SEO  Comments Off on Is Mobile Search More Than Just Being Mobile Friendly?
Apr 112015
 

In 1998, it was important for the owner of an online business to be listed in Yahoos directory. That could bring you enough traffic to be profitable. Today, if theres any equivalent to that tsunami of targeted traffic, its in mobile search.

Without a mobile-friendly website, people searching for your products and services on smartphones and other mobile devices wont find you as easily on Google. Customers decide what to buy, when, and from where right on their smartphones!

Business owners cannotafford to ignore or avoid this trend. So how can you prepare for mobile search?

Following arethe most frequently asked questions I get about mobile search. This isnt a step-by-step guide to mobile SEO, but hopefully itshould cover some of the more pressing issues faced by business owners in adapting to the shift to mobile.

The main objectives of this column are to:

As of April 21, when Google rolls out its new mobile-friendly algorithm, sites that arent mobile-friendly willrank lower in search results than if they were mobile optimized.

The search engine wontblock or remove your site for not being optimized for mobile search (as Google Webmaster Trends Analyst John Mueller recently confirmed), but youll have fewer sales because mobile searchers wont be able tofind you as easily. If your competitor has a mobile-friendly website, theyll have adistinct rankingadvantage over you.

Absolutely not. Mobile-friendly only means that your website renders nicely on a mobile device. In other words, your content will be presented neatly on any smartphone or tablet.

But just because your site looks good on a mobile devicedoesnt mean itsoptimized for mobile search. Mobile optimization depends on several factors like technical implementation, coding and content. It requires an integrated effort across multiple disciplines, including off-page factors.

Cryptocurrency Exchanges Emerge as Regulators Try to Keep Up

 Cryptocurrency  Comments Off on Cryptocurrency Exchanges Emerge as Regulators Try to Keep Up

Trust issues plague bitcoin and other digital currencies. Licensed exchanges could change that

The U.S. has approached cryptocurrency regulation cautiously, meanwhile 80 percent of all Bitcoin volume is exchanged into and out of Chinese yuan, according to a Goldman Sachs report. Image courtesy of Zach Copley, via Flickr

Digital cryptocurrenciesincluding bitcoin and litecoin, along with dozens of othershave struggled to win mainstream acceptance in the U.S. Interest in this so-called Internet money is not going away, however, which is why regulators are developing rules that that they hope can avert a repeat of last years Mt. Gox meltdown, when the worlds largest bitcoin exchange unexpectedly shut down after losing hundreds of thousands of bitcoins in a cyber attack. The U.S. government has largely sat on the sidelines, leaving states to regulate digital cryptocurrency exchanges. The exchanges, with names such as BitPay and Coinbase, are Web sites for buying, selling and exchanging digital currency. Bitcoin and its ilk are referred to as cryptocurrencies for their use of cryptography to secure transactions and mint new virtual coins. More than a dozen states and Puerto Rico already issue licenses for bitcoin exchanges, which represent the lions share of the worlds cryptocurrency transactions. California is working out the details of its own licensing guidelines while New York States Department of Financial Services plans to finalize its BitLicense regulatory framework in the coming weeks. Other countries are likewise grappling with the legal status of such currencies. The U.K., for example, recently announced it would police digital currencies by applying antimoney laundering rules to these exchanges. Regulations are good for cryptocurrency exchanges, says Campbell Harvey, a Duke University professor of finance. The rules will lend them a sense of legitimacy that should help reduce the volatility that has kept merchants and investors out of the action. The volatility comes from people seeing virtual currency as operating just outside the law, Harvey adds. Coinbase is licensed in 16 states and claims that eight other statesincluding California and New Yorkallow access to the exchange without the need for a license. Part of Coinbases success comes from allowing investors to change U.S. dollars into bitcoins and vice versa, an important feature because of bitcoins fluctuating value. A single bitcoin is currently worth about $250; a couple of years ago they were trading at more than $1,100 apiece. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, venture capitalist siblings best known for their legal battle with Mark Zuckerberg over the origin of Facebook, are awaiting New Yorks licensing regulations to their Gemini Bitcoin exchange in the state. Gemini will be a place to buy and sell bitcoins, akin to the way NASDAQ lets investors trade stocks, the Winklevosses said at last months South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin, Texas. Bitcoin is a harbinger of the cashless society that will be here by 2025, they said, adding that they believe in the cryptocurrency so much that they currently own 1 percent of the worlds more than 14 million bitcoins. Bitcoin operates on a peer-to-peer network that consists of computers run by people known as miners. Their computers are set up specifically to verify the validity of a transaction and record it in a digital public ledger system called a blockchain. The first computer to solve a cryptographic puzzle accompanying each transaction wins bitcoins for its miner. Other computers in the network check the solution, creating a redundancy designed to guard against transaction fraud. Once a transaction is entered into the blockchain ledger, it cannot be deleted or changed. The idea behind the blockchain is to prevent fraudulent transactions. And the peer-to-peer nature of the Bitcoin network means there is no bank or clearinghouse to charge a large fee per transaction. Although Apple Pay, Paypal and other digital payment services are improvements over credit cards and other online options, they are not a breakaway technology on par with the Bitcoin Network, Cameron Winklevoss said at SXSW. Regardless of such endorsements, Bitcoin exchanges continue to be a risky proposition. Start-up exchange Buttercoin will shut down on April 10 after failing to raise sufficient funding. Even high-profile financial backing from the likes of investors Y Combinator, Google Ventures and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian was not enough to keep the lights on. Part of the problem is the nascent technologys history as a volatile investment as well as an enabler of anonymous cyber criminal activity, including the infamous Silk Road online market for illegal drugs. The U.S. has a lot of ground to make up if banks and businesses here want to cash in on cryptocurrency80 percent of all Bitcoin volume is exchanged into and out of Chinese yuan, according to a March 10 Goldman Sachs report. The report estimates that more than 100,000 merchants worldwideincluding Overstock.com, TigerDirect.com and Expediaaccept bitcoins as payment. A sign that these companies do not completely trust their finances to cryptocurrencies, however: many convert these payments into more stable currencies rather than hold them as bitcoins.

Blue Freedom: A mini hydropower plant for charging mobile devices

 Freedom  Comments Off on Blue Freedom: A mini hydropower plant for charging mobile devices
Mar 252015
 

The all-new Blue Freedom kit offers yet another alternative to solar panels, fuel cells, muscle-powered dynamos, wind turbines, AC-charged back-up batteries and other portable power solutions. “The world’s smallest hydropower plant” transforms the power of running water into phone chatting, internet browsing, music listening, GPS navigating and other mobile device activities, and it does so from a package built to fit in a backpack.

We’ve covered other portable hydroelectric generator systems in the past, and some like the HydroBee were rather compact. Blue Freedom claims its kit is the smallest. It’s close to 2 oz (57 g) lighter than the HydroBee and looks considerably more compact. The relatively lightweight, slim Blue Freedom package can be carried in a backpack.

Developed in Germany, the Blue Freedom charging kit consists of a 4.7-in (12-cm-) -diameter micro turbine, a 5W generator and a 5,000 mAh lithium-polymer internal battery. The turbine takes a plunge into a running water body and the unit’s base stays ashore, letting you charge devices directly by way of the USB 2A and 1A ports. You can also store energy in the integrated battery for later use. A built-in LED light helps you see at night.

Blue Freedom tells us that the micro turbine doesn’t need to be situated in a specific way in relation to the direction of current, and is instead designed to flow with the water and deliver efficient charging. The kit is designed to operate in temperatures between 41 and 104 F (5 and 40 C) and altitudes up to 16,400 feet (5,000 m).

The idea of a small, packable hydropower system is certainly interesting, and the Blue Freedom appears to be a slickly designed package, but it left us asking: Why? It seems like solar panels are more versatile and easier to set up, allowing you to charge your device on the move as well as in place. Sunlight also tends to be a more readily-available commodity than running water when traveling off the grid.

According to the governments of US and Canada, two world leaders in hydropower production, hydropower is the most efficient means of generating electricity, transforming up to 90 percent of available water energy into usable electricity. Compare that to around 15 percent for solar panels, and you can start to see why a portable hydropower charger could prove quite superior.

Now we have no expectations that a micro turbine bobbing around in a ripple is going to be anywhere near as efficient as a full-sized hydropower plant, but Blue Freedom’s estimates do look promising. The company tells us that the hydropower kit should charge its internal 5,000 mAh battery in three to four hours, assuming a water flow rate of 1.2 m/sec (2.7 mph). An iPhone 6 would take about one to two hours at that same water rate.

The Blue Freedom’s times are much better than portable solar kits we’ve covered. For example, the Powertraveller Solarmonkey Adventurer takes 8 to 10 hours to charge its 2,500-mAh lithium-polymer battery. The Solar Joos Orange has received high marks for device-charging speeds from publications like Wired, but its internal 5,400 mAh battery takes 12 hours to charge via solar. So the simple answer to our question of “why” is “because you can power up the internal battery in a few hours, rather than over the course of half a day.”

Blue Freedom’s charging times are only a manufacturer estimates based on a prototype, so they’re not worth getting too excited over yet. Still, assuming the Blue Freedom is well designed, it should be able to offer quicker, more efficient off-grid charging than other portable options.

Depending upon the nature of the trip, the Blue Freedom may or may not be more convenient than other types of chargers. It’d be a good solution for camping (near a suitable stretch of creek or river), in which you’re staying in one place for an extended period and would be able to charge at night, when there’s no sunshine to harvest. On the other hand, it wouldn’t be very useful for trips through the city, desert or any stretch of land not adjacent to a flowing water body, which breaks down to a lot of stretches of land. The base station does include a microUSB port for charging the internal battery, so you could use other forms of energy, including solar panels, in the event that you can’t find running water. That will of course add to its 0.9-lb (400-g) pack weight and 7.9 x 2.2-in (20 x 5.5-cm) size.

Google Analytics for SEO Basic Cohort Analysis

 SEO  Comments Off on Google Analytics for SEO Basic Cohort Analysis
Mar 202015
 

In February Google Analytics came out with a beta release of the Cohort Analysis. This report can be extremely useful in helping SEOs prove the value of new customer acquisition via organic search, show how they engaged with the site, and surface when they ended up converting over time. Even if the customer ended up converting through a non-organic channel like email or PPC.

In this article well take a quick glance of the components of the report, then break down how to use segments to help quantify SEO specific efforts.

As seen below, the new Cohort Analysis reportcan be found by taking a look at the left-hand navigation in Google Analytics, under the Audience tab.

The graph below is simply showing Goal Completions (number 3), over the Date Range specified (number 4), grouped by the date acquired (number 1 and 7), for U.S. customers coming to the site via organic search (Custom SEO Segments).

To gain more insight into whats happening for SEO, we have to limit this report to only results from users who came from organic search. Many of you are probably already familiar, but for others it isnt the most intuitive experience in Google Analytics. Add, create, and remove segments by using the dropdown and plus sign.

Begin by creating a new segment, click the plus sign above, then the red button that says New Segment. In order to get granular with SEO, lets look at users only Google Organic in the United States, and create separate segments for desktop, mobile, and tablet users. Use how we specified a location of United States for Demographics (1) shown below to input the appropriate configuration for the Technology tab (2), and Traffic Sources (2). In the end well want the following specified.

Once segments have been created, specify them within the Cohort report to reveal a much bigger story, as seen in the report below. For example on March 12, 2015, organic search brought in 2,157 new potential customers using their mobile device. Twenty-five of them converted on the first day, followed by two, two, zero, six, and four the days following. Perhaps an email campaign sent out on day four helped to convert the six additional users that initially came to the site using organic search, SEO should still get credit for the initial touch, and that is how this report help SEO better quantify SEO efforts.
