Beginner’s Guide to Digg

Screenshot_4.jpg

I recently read a great explanation of Digg by Neil Patel of Pronet Advertising. It’s called the Beginner’s Guide to Digg. If you’re a blogger and want to increase page views, you should read it…I learned a lot, anyway.

This cool image, by the way, is from Urlyart.

    Beginning to Digg

    Guy Kawaski is right. This is a good beginners guide to Digg. If you’re trying to explain Digg to someone who’s never used it, it’s a good resource to point them too. Tags: Digg | Guy Kawasaki…

    Hello Guy,
    Rules for Revolutionaries set me off on several billion $ sales efforts and I did not want the money and I now have too much IP, but I love the game. Is there anyone that is in the IP connoisseur market? It comes natural to me now.
    I specialize in Euphoric Recall Memory and Apparel that is woven with light and incredible edibles that taste good and entertain.
    Photon + retina + brain = action predictable. The big ad agencies in Chicago said write a book so I did a 52 page with the missing link showing just one innovation that was an inside job and all these years we thought it was logos , emotional brands and brand leadership when it is just a neural transmission firing at the right time and bingo… it’s mine. I own it.
    Can’t afford it? I’ll steal it. OK just kidding but it happens.
    Winston and Strawn (Wonderful Patent Attorneys and the CFO at Daimler Benz and a CEO of a Chinese corporation who wants to buy the new technology sign /TV business put the 8 IP’s which we are on 20 Patents batting 100% put us at $250 million.
    I have sold some patents (40% of Office Depot and Office Max I invented for 5 companies.)
    Predictions are $10 billion by 2009 to 2010 and I am meeting with an investor Friday for help. I can not do it all. I have retail tests and conformations that we will be at 10 billion from the IP (big deal) by 2009 – 2010 providing I can find the right team. I have a medical background from U of Chicago and have been a CEO for a Designufacturing Company and helped several critical start ups like Upper Deck, Discovery Channel Disney and their Movies. and can shift market share by getting into the involuntary visual reflex system of the brand and move 20% of a $5 billion co in 2 years up to even out the GM and the market place they excel in and the competition hasn’t figured that one out.
    For the last 20 years I have done is Strategic Innovation leaving the competition OK but rather tactical and forced to guess how to react because I masquerade the battle as a phantom they try to beat with price going down of course. I am looking for a fit where a person with 20 patents, 300 awards and 500 trade secrets can fit. I am told on a regular basis that change is awkward…yes sir but a blast. Would you know of any companies that would like a second string mini clone of some one creative. This is serious… Any ideas?

    Someone has to need an inventor and I do 3D in my head. Please see www.interactivevisual.com and if I can help someone let me know.
    You are the best at change and maybe I’m in a rut. I think change scares people. As a CEO I thrive on it like a James Bond movie and no one gets killed. I have a criterion that is proprietary also. They are 100%.
    Thank you, Guy.

Companies and I did all the clear poly origami for his brand. “Mind Bender.” 
    Thank you, Guy. I hope to meet you some day and demonstrate the technique. Several large companies had chemists or physicists working for 60 days on a prop for a Movie and a piece for Disney Cruise Lines and I did them in 1 week and 24 hours respectively. I have to file everything because legal fees are holding back progress. Lest get people working. I do it for fun not money.

    This article is also good for mainstream — or somewhat mainstream websites like the one I work on (quickbooksgroup.com), in figuring out how to handle ‘ratings’ systems and for moving beyond the traditional .. X number of thumbs up if you like a particular post, blog or article. So thanks for spreading the gospel about this one

    Only problem is, sometimes DIGG just misses the really cool stories because it’s getting too big. A story can be posted and buried in nothing flat. For instance, this story was posted two days ago and it just faded away: http://digg.com/tech_news/UK_Moving_to_Internet_Telephone_system
