Ponzi Scam

Whilst social networking and online games can be productive and fun, this article on an online gambling site should make all aware that sometimes things are not what they seem.

The sun is out:)

Wow, the sun is shinning in Melbourne today.  A great day to get out and get some rays instead of being behind a computer.

How many social networking/media sites do you belong too - Why?

Curious as to how many social networking/media sites do you belong too and Why.  I know my journey began as part of educational and business research, finding that over a number of years I ended up being a member of over 60 sites (none of them dating ones by the way).  Totally unmanageable and as time has gone on I have begun to cull many, also lost passwords have forced me to ignore some.

I am now using only a few sites to keep myself up to date and those which seem to have a practical purpose, yes facebook, twitter, myspace but this less and less, linkden and am now testing branch out.  Of course blogs and my own website are not going anywhere.  

It has been a long journey and as more cloud computing comes into play that is certainly in the mix.

Love to hear about others journeys and what and why you are using particular sites.

Branch Out

Branch out is a relatively new social networking site that appears to be in competition with Linkedin.  I am still not sure exactly how it works although I am puddling around with it.  What I am finding at this stage is that it is very similar to Linkedin so do I really need Branch out in my kit of tools.  I would love to hear from others about their experiences and their comparison of the two.

'Stay Strong' - A Message for all at this time.

Japan Hit by 8.9 Earthquake and 4 Tsunamis

Mother Earth is certainly showing her might. The earthquake (8.9) and 4 tsunamis that have hit Japan between 8-10 metres high, another tragedy and more to come with comments that even the top of Australia will be hit by a Tsunami in approx 6 hours and other countries to be hit as well. Maybe we need to start looking after our planet to calm mother earths wrath.

Warnings now for other countries, including Australia.

It's the (virtual) economy, stupid

http://www.theage.com.au/digital-life/games/its-the-virtual-economy-stupid-20110310-1bozl.html

I hope you will read this article.  It gives a great insight into the millions being made out of virtual worlds and the games offered.  Scary in many ways, people paying to grow virtual food, create cake shops, run zoo's and more.  Whatever happened to Board games?
Not that I am against people playing games on facebook or other such sites, it can be fun but to be shelling out millions, to play a virtual game is, in my opinion, just not right.

The tactics used by the game creators and marketers is very clever and quite simple.  Appeal to the competitive nature of many and ensure the only way they can get the premium items on the games is through using 'real money'.  If you want the best farm, cafe or Zoo, you will have dip into your bank account to do so. 

For those on Facebook games, be careful as if you put a foot wrong on your facebook profile they can cancel your account at the click of a button, and you will have access to the virtual games you have spent many dollars and hours playing.

I would love to hear more opinions as there is a great deal to discuss here about marketing, psychology and economics.  I am sure that the real Zoo's of the world would benefit from donations to take care of real animals and they now may miss out as folks spend their money on virtual animals - Certainly a changing world:)

Mental Illness

I would appreciate your comments on the question below. I am curious as to whether the stigma of having a mental illness has improved or not.  I thank you in advance for your comments.

If you were diagnosed with a mental illness would you hide it from those close to you and your employer or would you be open with all about your diagnosis?
