The need for Independent News grows in urgency

Posted on June 20, 2017

Most would agree that the standard and accuracy of independent news as reported by the corporate giants has disintegrated over recent years.

It was not that long ago that we looked to the news media of day for updates on local and world affairs, absorbing each offering without question, unfiltered and believing it to be the truth. We may or may not have been receiving timely reports but we believed in and trusted the media outlets to provide unbiased informative portrayals of the truth.

This is not the case today.

Increasingly news sources and reporters’ works are being editorialised to meet owner’s biases.  The budgets of media companies are being slashed to maximise profits, forcing journalists to report on events based upon other media outlets news presentations.  Governments no longer believe in equality of distribution preferring to selectively brief preferred media sources, forcing other sources to rely upon rumours and fears. In short the concentration of media ownership, modern economics perversion of journalistic techniques and integrity combined with institutional political bias are restricting the availability, distribution and accuracy of reported events.

If you accept that even a small portion of my assertions to be correct, you are recognising the need to correct this corruption of news presentation. In so doing you are acknowledging the need for new local independent news sources. Independent journalists who can report on events and can be heard first hand across the globe. Thereby providing plain non-editorialised news to empower each reader to consider, absorb and react to without censorship.

Throughout my life

Posted on June 10, 2017

‘Throughout my life I have tried to be ethical, professional and loyal and most of all to keep my own council preferring to support and to empower those around me. My belief in team building and shared rewards combined with my desire to minimise confrontation and exploitation has led me to be construed by some adversaries as weak and lacking determination. This is not the case! It is simply that the filth and lies associated with the “pond scum” that masquerade as leaders in today’s economy and politics are creating a world that is increasingly unjust, uncaring and unethical and for me the world deserves better. I will not be drawn into their petty recriminations preferring to seek out those who desire peace, love and unity.

It is that desire which lead me to build NewTribeZ.net

NewTribeZ is FREE to join and use, it is a FREE online community and one that I sincerely hope, with your support, can be the catalyst for a more positive journey through life.’

Signup to NewTribeZ.net and support independent thought, music and small businesses after all we gain strength through diversity not through conformity.

Bill Gates Invests $2 Billion in RewFeed

Posted on June 03, 2017

Founder of Microsoft Mr Bill Gates has made an investment od $2,000,000,000 USD ($2 Billion US dollars) of his personal fortune into a tech start-up company called Rewfeed. With this investment Mr. Gates has acquired a controlling interest in the company. It is Mr. Gates belief that Rewfeed has the potential to shake the world’s economy more that the industrial revolution did.

Obviously this begs the question what is Rewfeed and what is Mr. Gates viewing it as a pivotal investment?

Rewfeed is software that plugs into all social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Reddit, VK, Tumblr, Pinterest, Myspace and more.

In an interview with CNN tech, Jason Clark the creator of Rewfeed, revealed how Rewfeed works and its intended use. “Rewfeed works like a team of spies. We have millions of automated robots that go on social media and gather real-time data – posts, images, text, videos and anything else people are publicly saying. Then we analyse all this data, looking for topics related to any publicly traded companies. Once we have a certain trending topic related to a big company, we analyse if the trend is Positive or Negative. If the trend is positive, we bet on the stock to rise, if the trend is negative – we bet on the stock to fall.”

Mr Clark also affirmed his belief that it was 100% Safe. “We simply ask for access monitor the newsfeed using automated systems. There is no risk of us posting anything or your behalf. And besides that, no real human will be reading your Newsfeed. It’s all just algorithms looking for keywords. We take privacy very seriously and will never take any risks to harm our users.”

In the same interview Mr Clark illustrated Rewfeed’s business model while still under consideration will not be for the average business person. The … “first 1,000 spots will be free. After that, for regular users, we are thinking of charging $10,000.00 monthly and hundred times as much for trading firms who wish to use Rewfeed. We do not want to disrupt the stock market too much so spots will be limited to 1,000 trading firms and 1,000,000 regular users.”

In this YouTube Video Mr Clark explains his vision;

I would contend that this is a very concerning development one that places even more power in the hands of the business elite and a concept that from inception has in Mr. Clark’s own words the potential to disrupt the stock market. Additionally while this is heralded as a commercial development the potential to redirect activities to dissident or to non-conforming political exponents should be abundantly clear. Therefor this company, its activities and its ownership are matters for real public concern.

Need for independent Media Sources

Posted on November 10, 2016

Recent events

Much is being written on social media of the surprise at the results of the US Presidential election. A result very few had seriously considered due to the overwhelming barge of information provided by corporate media blinding most of us to depth of feeling and desire for change.

The reactions to the result have highlighted our collective need for independent media sources. Clearly the wall of information provided by Corporate media services and pollsters missed picking up on the mood of the electorate and in so doing illustrating the need for independent sources to provide balance and “real” world insight into the events of the day. If we are to make informed decisions and to be part of the governmental processes then the growth of non-vested interest media sources and platforms for the distribution of genuine independent thought are essential.

The reasons behind my latest venture – NewTribeZ.net

Posted on September 25, 2011

Over the years I have been involved in various innovations most out of recognition of a market need and in order to fuel the next round of research; however in recent times my concerns have become more “social” in nature. My latest venture has evoked some interesting questions and in light of the impending release of a media interview I have created a blog which provides the full story in answering why and what led to NewTribeZ.net’s creation… 

NewTribeZ.net logo

Today we face increasing worldwide challenges; Climate change, Environmental degradation, economic calamities and ongoing military conflicts all of which have left us a little disillusioned, with less to contribute but with a greater need to see real change.

In thinking on such challenges the “Stone Soup” story came to mind.

A simple struggling family came to a village carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Arriving in a village they requested assistance from the villagers but they were unwilling to share their store of food with the family.  The family went to the nearby stream and filled the pot with water, placed a large stone in the pot and placed it over a fire. A villager became intrigued and asked what they were doing. Making Stone soup which tastes great but it does need a little garnish to make it fantastic replied the family. The villager who has a few too many carrots did not mind offering a couple to help them out, so they were added to the soup. Another villager seeing the pot also enquired and again the family mentioned that the stone soup while good could be improved with garnishing to which the villager offered a few potatoes he had but did not need. These too were added to the pot. As more and more villagers walk by and enquired they too offered that which they could spare and each offering was added to the stone soup. Finally a delicious and nourishing soup was created and the family having cooked too much offered it to all the villages to enjoy.

The message is simple; without coercion and through simple compassion a solution for all was found by each contributing as and what they could.

It is with the “Stone Soup“ philosophy in mind that NewTribeZ.net was formed; the gathering of individuals irrespective of age, race, religion, wealth or political bias contributing as and what they can when they can to in order to form one great new tribe for personal and mutual benefit as we move toward the ultimate goal of world peace.

Imagine what we can achieve if we just tried. Join NewTribeZ, its free and it asks nothing more than for you to enjoy a great community and to consider the opportunities that may empower you to make a difference in your personal, business and community life.

Development Evangelist – The missing ingredient

Posted on September 27, 2010
Greg C. Gibson - Development Evangelist

Greg C. Gibson – Development Evangelist

The Need for a Development Evangelist.

Almost daily I am introduced to great men who believing in a dream have invested in the potential of an idea only to find their investment has yielded little or nothing. Every day millions of dollars are wasted in companies because non-tech people and tech people either don’t communicate or completely misinterpret each other’s points of view. Such communication failures wastes millions of investor’s money and saps the creative juices of those who diligently try to achieve badly expressed or continually morphing objectives.

Too often the idea is assumed to be simple to enact by people who do not have an understanding of the fundamentals necessary to bring the idea to fruition. And do not have the communication and technical skills to motivate and direct those empowered to make it happen. But they have the skill to motivate and extract funding from trusting investors.

As such focus is spent on embellishing and marketing that which is yet to be attained and selling the idea over and over again in order to fuel not the achievement of the objective but the maintenance of the dream. This is not a new phenomenon but what is new is the shortage of resources to fuel such ideas and bring them to realisation. Today investors are more cautions than even and more skeptical of the “idea prophets” and their snake oil sales pitch.

There can be no doubt that ideas are what generate a great product but it is the design and implementation that makes it a reality for investors and users. To do this you need developers to innovate and mould the technical pieces into a functional fabric. Unfortunately developers get very little if any credit for their work as they are generally relegated to backrooms and treated as menial pawns rather than the ingenious thinkers they are. It must be remembered that the concept without the technical means to exist and to be brought to fruition is just a thought, it may be a great thought but it is just that a thought and without execution is without meaning. The importance of this lies in the recognition of the essential need to convey to the developers the concept and to empower them with the tools to bring the idea to life.

The world is full of dedicated highly skilled technical people that are ready, willing and able to solve technical challenges. They will amaze and astonish you with their innovative and cost effective solutions and will they work diligently to bring your idea to fruition but you have to know how to communicate with them.

What a Development Evangelist will do

Conveying information to the media, exciting a market, inspiring customer loyalty and freeing up the pockets of investors are talents but they are not the talents necessary to motivate, empower and direct developers. This is quite a different talent and invariably needs that rare ingredient, a person of experience, talent, knowledge and with the communication skills to speak both “geek” and “meek”. That person is a Development Evangelist. For those that are no familiar with the term, a Development Evangelist is a spokesperson, mediator, facilitator and translator between the idea originator and the technical staff entrusted to realise the dream.

Properly empowered a Development Evangelist will be the best player that any investor, entrepreneur or technical professional can have on their team. For he is on everyone’s team, it is him or her that will minimise the waste of investors’ capital, minimise the sapping of creative talents and maximise the probability of success.  It is his compassion and understanding for those that he is entrusted to guide that will bring the most out of the technical resources empowered to realise the dream and to do so in the most timely and cost effective manner.

If you are or you know of someone that is about to invest in or about to embark upon a venture to take an idea and bring it to fruition and they do not have as part of their team a Development Evangelist then do them a favour and warn them of their folly. There are enough damaged souls from ship wrenched ideas scatted on the reefs of reality, we need not inject any more carnage and hurt into the investing community. We owe it to the world to realise as many great ideas as possible, let us not waste what meger resources we have, especially when it will take so little to protect.
