TED – The Rapid Growth of The Chinese Internet & Where It’s Headed By Gary Liu

The Chinese internet has grown at a staggering pace — it now has more users than the combined populations of the US, UK, Russia, Germany, France and Canada. Even with its imperfections, the lives of once-forgotten populations have been irrevocably elevated because of it, says South China Morning Post CEO Gary Liu. In a fascinating talk, Liu details how the tech industry in China has developed — from the innovative, like AI-optimized train travel, to the dystopian, like a social credit rating that both rewards and restricts citizens…..

Why Google Fiber Is High-Speed Internet’s Most Successful Failure – Blair Levin & Larry Downes

1.jpg

In 2010, Google rocked the $60 billion broadband industry by announcing plans to deploy fiber-based home internet service, offering connections up to a gigabit per second — 100 times faster than average speeds at the time. Google Fiber, as the effort was named, entered the access market intending to prove the business case for ultra-high-speed internet. After deploying to six metro areas in six years, however, company management announced in late 2016 that it was “pausing” future deployments……

Why Major Cryptocurrency Investors Are Betting Heavily Against Ethereum – Jeff Kauflin

1.jpg

Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency platform in the world, has seen its currency plummet 36% this year. But some major crypto investors think it has more room to fall, and they’re betting aggressively against it.

New York-based Tetras Capital, a crypto hedge fund that launched last summer and is known for in-depth analyses of cryptocurrency prices, has shorted ether, borrowing the coins and hoping they tank so it can buy them back at a lower price. Tetras started shorting ether in May 2018, when the price ranged from $572 to $659. Ether currently hovers around $470.

Last week, Tetras published a 41-page report explaining its reasoning. Forbes estimates the six-person hedge fund has $30 million in assets under management. The ether short is one of its two high-conviction positions—the other is its bitcoin investment, says founding partner Alex Sunnarborg.

Timothy Young, a former entrepreneur who sold tech startup Socialcast for more than $100 million in 2011, is shorting ether through his San Francisco family office, Hidden Hand Capital. Hidden Hand has more than $100 million in crypto assets under management. And Bay Area hedge fund Neural Capital also has a short position, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Ethereum aims to be a global computing platform, but investors like Tetras and Hidden Hand are concerned that its $48 billion market cap isn’t justified, largely because the network can only handle about 15 transactions per second. By contrast, Visa can handle 24,000 transactions per second. “Ethereum has an incredible talent pool of developers,” Young says. “In the long term, I think they’ll solve a lot of scaling challenges. But in the short term, there’s a disconnect between the price and underlying technology.” Sunnarborg agrees, saying, “Just because something is a good idea doesn’t mean it’s a good investment.”

Ethereum isn’t controlled by a single company, and decentralized applications (DApps) run on top of it. None of these apps have more than 5,000 daily active users, yet the network is nearly at full capacity. Network congestion can cause the fees required to use the platform to skyrocket.

For example, to perform a simple step in the Ethereum-based game CryptoKitties, where users can create digital memorabilia, it might cost $3. Those costs rose higher than $20 at the end of 2017. “An application call can be roughly 1 million times as expensive on Ethereum as compared to a centralized service like AWS [Amazon Web Services],” Tetras wrote in its report.

Ethereum developers are working on several solutions to improve network capacity. The Tetras team thinks significant improvements are too far off. “The most optimistic estimates suggest that Ethereum’s Layer-2 and other broad scaling solutions will not be fully functional, tested, or capable of supporting the most popular DApps for roughly another two years,” Tetras’ report reads.

Jake Brukhman, founder of Brooklyn-based crypto asset manager CoinFund, disagrees. He has been holding ether since July 2015, and the asset has historically made up between 20% and 42% of his firm’s first fund. Among Ethereum’s nearer-term scaling solutions like “state channels,” which allow transactions to happen more quickly, off the Ethereum blockchain, “a ton of improvements are coming to market this year,” Brukhman says. “As a blockchain technology, Ethereum still remains the largest ecosystem of technologies, tools and developers.”

Some data suggests that few investors are closely monitoring Ethereum’s technological progress. Casper and Plasma are two technical updates that will help speed up Ethereum transactions. “Casper and Plasma publish their meetings, and they still have less than a few hundred views on YouTube,” Young says. “I don’t think most people are either taking the time or have the technical background to really understand.”

Other big-name investors are on the fence about ether. Kyle Samani, managing partner at Multicoin Capital, says he’s “seriously considering” shorting it, but is already betting against ripple and litecoin and isn’t ready to add more short exposure. Longtime crypto investor and CoinShares chief strategy officer Meltem Demirors is “neutral” on ether. “We are nowhere near a bear market yet,” she says, although she thinks demand for Ethereum-based tokens and applications is largely speculative. “In the absence of more Enterprise Ethereum Alliance announcements in 2018, I won’t look to add more exposure.”

Tetras goes into many other reasons for its short in its report. Other well-funded Ethereum competitors like EOS, Dfinity and Tezos have recently come online or are planning to launch later this year. “EOS just raised $4 billion, and you can pay teams to build applications,” Sunnarborg says. “I don’t think people with big bags [investments] are going to let that die.”

Tetras also thinks the ICO boom has driven ether’s price up, since many ICOs accepted only ether from interested investors. Those ICOs are at risk of a regulatory crackdown, “which will dry up most of ETH demand,” the report predicts.

Sunnarborg believes ether would need to become a better store-of-value asset to live up to its valuation. He sees bitcoin as the more likely winner as the top store-of-value crypto asset, due to “crucial characteristics, including: security, political and architectural centralization, monetary supply, regulation, and liquidity,” he says.

What would it take for Tetras to change its mind and exit its short? “If Vitalik and Vlad came out tomorrow and said, ‘In our sleep we developed the perfect sharding [scaling] solution,’ we might change our view,” Sunnarborg says.

Or if a regulatory ruling gave Ethereum a competitive advantage—for example, if other platforms like NEO or Dfinity were classified as securities—he would rethink the position. He doesn’t see the SEC’s recent statement that Ethereum isn’t a security as an indicator of a competitive advantage, because the ICOs that launched on top of Ethereum are still at risk of being deemed securities.

The challenge Internet Of Things Poses for Enterprises

Image result for industrial Internet of Things.

Raman Sapra is a digital business leader at Sasken. He spoke with TechRepublic’s Alison DeNisco Rayome during LiveWorx 2018 about the industrial Internet of Things.

Raman Sapra: If you look at industry IoT, right … Industrial IoT is seeing a very fast pace of eruption. And, it is driven by either Industry 4.0 use cases, and as well, industrial companies are looking at industrial IoT to automate their factory processes.

Or, it is been driven by smart-connected products, where companies are looking at their existing products and making them smart and connected.

So, we are seeing demand for industrial IoT driven by both these two scenarios.

You know, I must also spend some time and give you and your viewers a quick perspective in terms of what has Sasken focused on, as far as digital is concerned.

SEE: Internet of Things policy (Tech Pro Research)

So, Sasken is an organization with a very strong product engineering services heritage. And, we are now in the process of scaling out the digital business at Sasken.

We are not focused on consumer digital. We are not focused on beta-suite digital. We are focused on industrial digital or B2B digital. And, we are delivering that to our customers through very focused practices of platform development, IoT, data analytics and mobility, and immersive reality.

The biggest challenge organizations are facing is the right use case. What should we start with? How do we get quick success, as far as a pilot is concerned? And, once you had success with the pilot, how do we quickly scale it out?

So, I think the critical thing is to define the right use case, so that one is successful, one can take learnings from the pilot, and then scale it out.

7 Obvious Things Marketers Forget About When Creating an Email Message – Paul Shuteyev

1.jpg

According to the latest estimates 205 billion emails are sent daily. Most of them are either business-related, some type of promotions or advertising. The number might seem surprising to some but if you think about, we use email messages so much – as invitations to events or webinars, as reminders, triggered campaigns, promotional campaigns or drip campaigns, that it makes sense. But all this email writing made us blind to some obvious things and lose our focus.

Your email messages can be improved to the point where they’ll help you convert within minutes. But this article is not about marketing “rocket-science” or some crazy hacks. The goal is to remind you that it’s the simple changes that produce the most results.

Which is why we have compiled these 5 tips that will allow you to improve your current email messages, or create new ones that will convert better than you ever thought. Do you use these rules for your emails? Read on and see.

Tip 1: Use conversational style

Are you tired of long introductions, enterprise-level style and terminology-packed emails you receive on a daily basis? That’s how most people feel when they receive emails written in the wrong style.

People love and respond to things that are simple and clear, so that should be your priority when creating your email copy. When we receive an email that sounds way too impersonal and corporate, we assume it’s automated or a bulk campaign, which doesn’t help the conversions. Your email shouldn’t just be friendly, it should seem personal – make it look like it’s been created just for this one person, as if in a private conversation.

Corporate style (the complex one) is only appropriate if you’re sending a message to a government institution or a massive enterprise-level company, but that is very rare even for those who deal with emails every day. In all other cases don’t be afraid to speak your mind.

Nothing converts better than a friendly email, as long as you keep it polite. Don’t be afraid to write “Hi!”, “Hey!”, or “How’s your day?” – we are all human!

Tip 2: Keep your emails short

This issue is closely related to the style of your email, as many marketers and salespeople still believe that they must put as much information in one email as possible. Do you read long emails? No, and no one does. When people see a long email, they usually can only get through the first few lines.

Studies show that an average person spends only a couple of seconds evaluating an email. Not enough to even get through your long introduction.

Keep your emails as short as possible. This will make your email look more personalized, as messages written individually are usually short. If you need to introduce yourself do it with one sentence. Then write one or two lines focused entirely on the email’s main topic and proceed to the main goal – a question or a CTA.

Even sales and promo messages can be short. If you want a recipient to reply – just ask them a simple short question. If you want them to open your link – briefly describe what they’ll get by doing that. The shorter your email is, the more information is digested by the recipient.

Tip 3: Make your CTA clear

Emails written by marketers and salespeople all have a goal. However, we often see promotional email messages cluttered with questions, buttons, links and more. That can backfire.

Your CTA should be concise and to the point. If your goal is to start a conversation, the best CTA is a question that pushes a recipient to reply to your message. If you want a recipient to download something, to fill in a form, or perform any similar action, just describe the advantages of them doing so and provide them with a link.

CTA is an essential part of a marketing email, so remember to add one in the first place. Adding extra information distracts the recipient from the main point of an email.

Tip 4: Consider the technology behind the email

Email messaging has sophisticated and complex systems behind it – IMAP and SMTP servers, filtering mechanisms, wording analysis, anti-spam filters and much more. These are essential in designing your email:

  • Avoid spam-words, such as – 100%, access, act now, as seen on, all natural, compare rates, double your, extra income, free access, free sample, giving away, great offer, etc.
  • Don’t include too many links. This includes links to your CTA, your website, your profiles or social media pages. 1 or 2 links is enough.
  • Allow people to unsubscribe, either through an unsubscribe-me link if you are sending a bulk or cold campaign, or just a line “Please let me know if you are not interested, so I don’t bother you anymore”. Make it easy for the recipient to unsubscribe, this will lead to improved reported-as-spam rates.
  • Avoid using scripts or code in your emails don’t overcomplicate it. When filters detect scripts or code in your email they assume it’s automated or promotional. Use graphics and HTML templates only when delivering messages to existing subscribers or clients.

Tip 5: Use Re: subject lines

If you are reaching out to a recipient with a second or third email message within the same conversation, or because the first email went unanswered, use the same subject line.

Subject lines that automatically start with “Re:” have higher open rates, because the recipient sees the new message as a reply to an existing conversation. Don’t try to fake it, only organic “Re:” generated automatically will work. Most drip campaign tools do this automatically by using the subject line from the first email sent.

Extra Tip: Examples

We would like to show you few examples of short, friendly email messages with clear CTAs. Email messages like these produce better open, click-through and conversion rates, and we recommend you try them for yourself.

Example 1

Subject line:

NAME, here’s a quick question.

Body:

Hi NAME,

Hope all is well! I’m John from Johnson’s Bureau.

Do you still manage a marketing team at COMPANY NAME? I would love to hear your thoughts on our new tool for marketers.

Best regards, and looking forward to your reply,

John

Example 2

Subject line:

NAME, see your invitation to a free webinar for gym owners and trainers

Body:

Hey NAME,

Hope you are doing great!

I’m John from John’s Gym, and we have a webinar for gym owners, gym managers and fitness trainers this Thursday, July 5. We will discuss and show ways to attract more clients to gyms through offline channels.

We know you’ll find it helpful. Here is your invitation to a free webinar – LINK. Talk to you soon!

Thinking About Becoming An Infopreneur – Michael Guta

1.jpg

You probably have heard “Information is Power,” and in today’s digital ecosystem it has become much easier to turn this information into a business. The new infographic by Kajabi looks to answer how this is the right time to turn your knowledge and expertise into a business as an infopreneur.

Titled, “Knowledge Commerce: How to Turn Your Skill Into a Thriving Business,” this infographic shows how the market is ready for infopreneurs. According to Kajabi, there is now a huge opportunity  for knowledge commerce.

And thanks to the confluence of current technology and knowledge these businesses can be easily and quickly established by anyone. As long as you have the knowledge and expertise, you can make yourself available to a global customer base looking to consume what you offer.

What is an Infopreneur?

When Harold Weitzen came up with the term infopreneur in the 1980s, the internet was crawling at kilobits per second and smartphones, social media and gigabit speeds were still years away.

Fast forward to 2018 and access to massive amounts of data is literally in the palm of your hand — provided you have a smartphone. This availability gives entrepreneurs the rare opportunity to provide information to a massive audience almost instantaneously — and this is where infopreneurs come in.

An infopreneurs are people who take the knowledge they’ve accumulated and turn it into a money-making enterprise by teaching, consulting, engaging in knowledge commerce or creating knowledge-based media.

The Knowledge Market

Kajabi is a company which provides a platform for creating online courses. And in the infographic, the company claims the market for knowledge commerce is growing.

The E-learning market is expected to reach $241 billion by 2022 and with so much potential, Kajabi says experts can use the many different resources available to them to start a business or provide a second income.

The company first recommends you figure out in what area your expertise lies. This could includes taking an aptitude test to help you find your subject area and clearly identify your field.

You then need to market your brand — in this case, yourself! The infographic suggests publishing content on social media, blogs, your website, or in podcast and on YouTube while managing your time efficiently. And as with any other business, you have to create a product in which your customers will be interested and make it available at a great price point.

As Kajabi points out, the market is big and the competition is fierce, but “It’s all about combining your unique knowledge with your unique personality and viewpoint.”

Become an Infopreneur

Take a look at the infographic below to get some pointers on how to become an infopreneur today.
