Sharing the Revenue

That is awesome that there are social media sites and networks starting to share the revenue with their top content generators.

Let's go a step further. How about you pay me for all valid, professional interaction I have.

I should be able to generate video, audio, files, pictures, etc and post them places and share in the revenue from these either being sold or ad revenue from eyeballs.

I want to be able to take part in networks and spread the word through linking, commenting, and other forms and for every action I take it works towards and overall return in cash or other compensation.

If I generate content and you make money, kick me a piece of the action.

Open Platform

To achieve the perfect platform for how I operate and think I don't think one company can deliver by themselves.

To create the perfect suite or set of tools that I need to operate on a daily basis I need different applications that interact and operate on a common standard and interface.

I need to be able to try different perspectives and approaches.

If an application doesn't work for me I need to be able to say NO! This doesn't work dammit, and show me others like it so I can try more.

I don't want to have to worry about my data, it stays with me!

I fire up the new application and it works for me, and my data is all in there.

Sure the bigs boyz can fight over who will give me my base platform. Google works for me, but Yahoo may for you. Windows Live maybe be a better option.

However you need to let vendors share their warez and offer them to me in a safe environment. They can peddle whole systems or just objects and features. Maybe they can perform a service for me. Something like Salesforce Appshare with a more Firefox Add-on feel.

Social Programming Platform

Ok. Now that I have been blogging somewhat successfully (what is successfully), I am starting to develop a rhythm. It is pretty erratic, but it is starting to flow and develop a voice. Well at least to me.

So if you wish to read this blog it is more for my head to keep track and formulate some of the thoughts I am having about my evolution in the Social Media Space.

This blog is based upon a mind map I am creating in MindMeister, and will be publishing it to my Kin Lane web site as soon as it matures a little bit.

So these are going to be pretty random, as I can I will link off the mind map as I publish it and / or I will try to outline off my site and link to each blog in some organized fashion, as I make sense of it.

Private Profile Items vs. Public Profile Items

There is a lot of information that exists in a dual format in my public and private life. A lot of what I do I don't mind it being public. That is my personality.

However there are items that I have to or want to keep private. These items I usually want to keep completely private or maybe make portions of it private.

Therefore a separation between all items I work with to have the option to share or keep to myself. Of course everything defaults to being private unless I set a default setting to say otherwise for that item.

Tracking everywhere I have been on the internet

Going through my Web History for my Google Profile. A little scary when you look at it. I click into my Web History right from the Google Home Page, well...my IGoogle.

First page it shows my search history for the day...starting at 8am. Hmmm...what to think about this?

I look further and I click on the calendar to view other days. Hmmm...that is what I was looking at last saturday.

If you think about it this is pretty scary. Google knows where I have been and what I am looking at.

You know what I really don't care at this point, maybe someday I will. But really if I do something I don't want someone to know about I am not going to do it on my home or work computer logged into Google. C'mon.

I kind of like it. It shows me my trends. What the hell I am looking at. It will integrate with my bookmarks.

I could create a cloudview of what I do. I would like to be able to share some of my search history with the world. I would like to share some of my bookmarks with the world.

Maybe a neat little public cloudview of what I do on the Internet daily, well what I want the public to see that I do on the Internet daily.

My Information Storage Part 2

Wherever my information is stored, whether public or private it should always be redundant.

I don't want to hear anything I've done every disappear or gets lost. I want it always backed up and retreivable.

My Information Storage

When I am asked to save something on the internet when using an web application or desktop application I want to asked where?

I want to save it to a public location as part of my profile.

I want to save it to a privation location as part of my profile either in my online environment or in a local environment. A local logical drive.

This should be part of everything I do on the Internet, I should have to think too hard about it.

Should just flow and be where I put it.

Track My Comments

I have had this discussion with a few people at different times. I have also seen other people talking about getting information on their commenting.

I would like all comments I make on public sites to tracked as part of my history. I want to know what I am saying out there.

Just like my search history I want to see each and everyday what I say to the general public at large.

Should of course be able to search this information and post cloud views of I am doing out there.

I post comments on Flickr, Youtube, Blogs, Forums, Q&A Site and many other place.

I should be able to see what I have done for the day.

Usage of My Public Profile Information

Since everything with my public profile is accessible to the general public in some form, there should be a easy profile page get at my bio and display links to all my public information.

You should be able to see my photos, videos, comments, social networks, etc.

Of course the ones I want you to see.

You should be able to review my resume and work / project history. You should know if I am looking for work or not.

All of this without really speaking to me. However, you should be able to interact with me as well.

People should be able to come get my information from me.

If I am selling products or offering services you should see that. Come harvest my public events. Come gather demographics on me.

If you like a video I have you can license it right there and utilize it.

Social Working and Job 2.0

If I want a job or some project work, why do I have to look on so many networks. Sure I can find all the places I want to look these days and accumulate some RSS feeds and monitor these channels.

However why should I? I should just turn on the available light and based upon my resume, work history and profile the work just comes to me. It knows how many hours I want and what sort of situation I am available for.

Employers can submit to talk more with me and begin an interview process.

The flip side!

I want to be able to just cruise for opportunities and see what is out there. Companies should have an open area of their company where they put projects and roles up for availability and I can pick up 2 hours of work, 2 days there.

My resume profile handles interfacing with the companies and lets them know I am qualified. I get the work done, and if all requirements are met money / compensation is awarded to my profile.

The work history goes into my profile and the employer if applicable can comment on my work.

Maybe Monster.com meets Mechanical Turk?

Job 2.0

Social Networking Profile Aggregation

I have seen a lot of discussion about the use of multiple social networks and how difficult it is to maintain your profile across these networks.

I don't want a different profile at each of these networks. I want my one profile and these networks to come to me.

I don't want to have go through a lengthy sign up process. I want to be instantly evaluated upon arrival and either let in.....or what?

Every application should treat me like this. I don't have to fill out a form and check my email to validate an email before entering a retail store or restaurant on the street.

I am authenticated at the door for the public environment or there is a simple ID or visual check to make sure I am a valid user.

Analytics for my Profile

I have this great public profile showing all my stuff.

Now of course I want analytics for all of this. I want to know who is looking at what. What is most popular and what is not.

Show me which images were looked at today, what audio people heard.

I want to be able to do this all without having to grab a piece of code from my Google analytics and paste it on a site.

I just want to know.
