Angling for Control in the Sea of Social Networks

Angling for Control in the Sea of Social Networks:
The Future of Venturing in the Community Internet

Saturday, April 18, 2009

at the California Institute of Technology
Pasadena, California

Like remoras around whales such as MySpace, Facebook, and LinkedIn, hundreds of thousands of smaller social networks flourish or struggle, based on diverse affinities of politics, hobbies, tastes, professions, and, of course, shared dislikes!

“Socnet” proliferation amplifies issues that increasingly worry users—“What access do friends of friends have? Is my content still mine? What about advertisers?” Along the way they become weary of repeated data entry, leery of ever-proliferating and incomprehensible “Terms of Service,” and angry when a site overreaches.

Meanwhile, smaller socnet sites want to exploit the behemoths’ reach while hoping for standards, the big guys seek to define the standard, and most all want maximal use if not control of user data.

Combining these concerns with blogs, Twitter, social shopping, and wikis yields today’s rich but uncertain techno-brew. Against this background of interaction and tension, today’s keynote, entrepreneurs and panelists will explore where we are going, including issues such as whether OpenSocial, data portability and other initiatives will succeed, how individual socnet sites survive and flourish, and the nature of infrastructural and other opportunities for entrepreneurs.

KTLA Directv signal drops

I’ve been having this problem with DirecTV since I had the service installed.
On the HD channel I will experience periodic drops to black and pixelation from time to time.
I’ve heard that it has something to do with the way DirecTV converts the signal to broadcast out over their network.
After many calls to DirecTV I still have not received answer and since the problem is sporadic.

Is anyone else having this problem in the LA Area or elsewhere.

Funnel Mill Coffee Syphon Brewing

Just learned about Syphon Brewing from Funnel Mill in Santa Monica.

Mission Statement

We specialize in rare blends of coffee beans and tea, and we emphasize serving them in the optimal manner while educating our guests. We brew our coffees one cup at a time using Syphons, and practice traditional Chinese Cha Tao when serving our teas.

This is from the Funnel Mill site:

Syphon Brewing

The first thing most people notice about Funnel Mill is the unique method we use to brew our coffees. We use a double glass chamber vacuum pot, which is also known as a Syphon, Cona, Vaculator, or Turkish Coffee Pot. We have perfected the art of Syphon coffee making, and our fans attest that our process yields a smoother, richer, and less bitter cup of joe.
Here’s why:

Syphons make great coffee because they optimize temperature, extraction, and contact time. The ideal temperature for brewing coffee is between 196 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit. We have found that our Syphons consistently fall into this range, releasing the full spectrum of aroma and flavor in the coffee.

The perfectly heated water makes direct contact with the coffee grounds before it is suctioned away by a vacuum force. The rapid evacuation from the upper chamber extracts the right amount of coffee solids and oils, resulting in more body and flavor. By comparison, a typical drip coffee maker simply pours water over grounds, a process that leaves behind much of the flavor.

Some brewing methods, like the French press, can overextract coffee, infusing it with a bitter taste and an oily mouthfeel. Funnel Mill brews its coffees for only 40 – 60 seconds, depending on the type of coffee. We use finely ground coffee in our Syphons, which require a very short extraction time. This means we can get a very full flavor without the sacrificing a clean feel and aftertaste.

Funnel Mill takes the art of Syphon brewing to the next level, taking an academic approach to coffee brewing. We have invented many techniques to elicit the best flavors of our beans and to suit the individual preferences of our patrons.
Make it at home

Our customers agree that Syphon brewing is one of the most stylish, inspiring, and exclusive ways to make great coffee. It is no surprise then that many like to brew our beans at home. For these fans, we offer a few Syphon models for sale.

Natural organic handmade soap at wholesales prices are made by Rogue Valley Soap and Candles in Grants Pass, Oregon. Handmade soy tealights, tealight
Natural Handmade Soap, Rogue Valley Soap and Candles Grants Pass Siskiyou Artisans Hand crafted soap and candles can also be purchased at Siskiyou Artisan located in the Rogue Valley Mall in Medford, Oregon.

Natural Organic Handmade Soap
Soy Tealights – Soy Votives – Hurricane Candles

Natural organic handmade soap at wholesale is made by Rogue Valley Soap and Candles. The organic hand made soaps are scented with pure essential oils.

Rogue Valley Soap Company is a small family-owned business located in beautiful Southern Oregon. We are dedicated to making the finest natural handmade soap at wholesale prices. Also available are premium handmade soy tealight candles, soy votive candles, and hurricane candles. We use only the highest quality ingredients in our hand made soap and in our soy tealights and soy votives. Our handmade soap is made in small batches using the”cold process” method, thereby retaining the natural glycerin that is produced during the saponification process. Glycerin naturally soothes and softens the skin. Many commercial soap manufacturers remove glycerin from their soap, thus leaving your skin dry and itchy after using their soap.

The base of our natural handmade soaps is olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil. We don’t use tallow or animal fat in any of our handcrafted soaps. The natural handcrafted soap is scented with pure essential oils that are distilled from natural herbs, plants, and flowers.

Because our soaps are handcrafted, they are very unique in size, shape and characteristics. Each bar of soap is hand cut and weighs approximately 3.5 to 4 ounces. Handmade soap lasts longer than the commercial soaps found in retail stores. The aroma therapy and therapeutic values of the natural, pure essential oils used to scent our soaps are listed in The Essential Oils Guide.

Most of the natural herbs used in our soaps are organically grown (pesticide free) in our herb gardens in Grants Pass, Oregon. The handmade soap is air-dried and aged for a minimum of four weeks to produce a mild, gentle, long-lasting bar of soap that is naturally high in glycerin. Our soap will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft, and re-hydrated.

Handmade hurricane candles are made from a high temperature wax to prevent the shell from melting. Real flowers (grown in my garden in Grants Pass, Oregon) are encased in the candle wax. Hurricane candles are hollow inside. Illuminate the hurricane candle by placing a tealight candle or a votive candle inside the candle.

Soy tealight candles and soy votive candles are hand-poured in small batches. These highly fragrant soy tealights and soy votives will scent and entire room. Soy tealights will burn 6 to 8 hours and soy votives will burn 18 to 20 hours or longer. Soy wax will liquify when burning, so a snug-fitting container is necessary when burning the votive candle. Soy wax is water soluble and easily cleans up with soap and water.

The natural hand made soaps, hurricane candles, soy tealights and soy votive candles can be purchased locally at Savannah Faire in Grants Pass, Oregon, and at Siskiyou Artisans located in the Rogue Valley Mall in Medford, Oregon. You can also find me on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Growers Market in Grants Pass, Oregon. I also sell at various craft faires and festivals in California, Oregon, and Washington.

Handmade soap makes great wedding favors. Soap labels can be personalized with the bride and groom’s name and date of wedding.

Check out their bios below and please join me in welcoming them to the team.

Pasolivo olive oil is produced at our family’s ranch in Paso Robles, located on California’s central coast. We have over 45 acres of olive trees under cultivation, in varieties chosen specifically for their excellent oil. Pasolivo is our family’s signature olive oil: an estate grown and pressed extra virgin olive oil made of Tuscan olives grown on our ranch. All of our oils are made in our own olive press, just steps away from our orchard. This gives us the ability to create olive oils out of the freshest fruit available – and we believe you can taste that in our award-winning oils.
