In which I appear at Do the Future and Futurismic

Talking in a rather up-beat fashion about the future.  Early last week I got to attend Microsoft’s tech-fest Day 0 and to chat with people there.  I wrote a post pretty specifically about that for Do the Future, and incorporated it into my monthly column over at Futurismic.  I am feeling a bit more upbeat and positive these days, and I think that showed through in these posts.  How do you feel about the future?

    Good idea Scott, and maybe to add to that Change the URI to scottgould.us !That would ermcabe your concept even more than the .me’ that you now have b7 06/10/10 at 12:04b7Alex VERY good idea. Trouble is it would mean I’d loose the authority that this site has in Google, etc, which I’m a bit concerned about. Also make people think i’m in the US..? Anonymousb7 06/10/10 at 13:34b7Could you run both in tandem the .us as a forwarding? I’m sure that people will quickly realise that the .us is us as opposed to US when they see the content.Understand the rankings thing, but maybe it’s a chance to see just how authoritative the site and community is in the digital world? How quickly could the collaboration and digital footfall drive a .us from inception to authoritative meeting place that is widely known.I imagine that’s a potentially scary step of faith and might just as likely be business suicide, but theere must be some way round it gradual migration from .me to a forwarded .us until the .us has the same google etc ranking and presence. I dunno how these things work but just threw it in.God bless, keep up the excellent work! b7 06/10/10 at 22:57b7Forwarding won’t transfer the authority unfortunately. I like the idea, and perhaps now would be the time to do it, seeing as this blog isn’t particularly well know b7 06/10/10 at 17:19b7Hi Scott!So you’re back on track!
