For instance, typical American Hollywood movies are very polarized. You can also ‘retweet’ someone else’s tweet (similar to forwarding an email) to your followers. Web 2.0 is the ‘golden fleece’ of increased web site traffic.
Increased web site traffic until recently covered a whole gamut of techniques that fell short of embracing the brave new world of social media. It was almost as if Web 2.0 was for ‘play’ whilst the serious ‘work’ of the internet would involve Pay per Click, Article marketing, safelisting etc.
Tempted to shout at them to be quiet, I remembered something one of my teachers had done to my class almost twenty years ago. I looked at the children, held their gazes, raised my hand and in my clearest, steadiest voice, began slowly, yet firmly counting. By the time I got to “five”, the class was quiet, and 22 pairs of large eyes were curiously looking at me, waiting for instructions. And then. I was in charge.
I believe Green is an easy choice over the other two finalists – the great Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings and Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins.
In the 2012 US election election between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Silver correctly predicted the winner of all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

We already knew he was a joke in the US, but I had no idea his comical reign was viewed in a similar fashion outside our borders. Let me set this one up for you: About 200 of us are listening to a presentation on “How to bring culture into your classroom.” The speaker demonstrated by providing a powerpoint that could work in any classroom. Each powerpoint represented a country. For example, for South Africa there was a drum and Desmond Tutu. For Australia there was a kiwi and an kangaroo. Then comes the US screen: Abraham Lincoln and George Bush.
Now, here’s a closer look at my three incorrect selections — Malkin for the Hart Memorial Trophy, Green for the James Norris Trophy and Murray for the Jack Adams Trophy.
If you consistently give value without always demanding a return, then people just seem to want to know more about you. Don’t forget the story of the Sun and North Wind, who had a wager on removing a man’s coat. However strongly the North Wind gusted, the man simply fastened his coat even tighter. The Sun merely shone sweetly. The man got hot. He removed his coat. Be a ‘Sun’ in Web 2.0, and increased web site traffic is the natural consequence.
