Michael Dell’s Old Business Card Will Inspire You To Never Forget Your Roots

Michael Dell? Never heard of him. Used to be a Mike Dell down the road, though. Sold some newfangled devices called PCs for a while. Only lasted 30 days in that space, then he moseyed on elsewhere. Michael Dell went on to unequivocal success in the PC business, but judging from this throwback posted to Twitter on Friday, the founder and CEO of Dell still remembers his roots: My business card in 1984, year I started.

This Is What It Meant To ‘Be A Man’ In 2015

Judging from advertising and movies, being a dude is pretty simple: Have lots of sex, money and power. But is that limited conception of masculinity doing anyone any favors? Not so much.  A video published  on Thursday by The Representation Project reveals the good, the bad and the ugly of the messaging men receive about what it means to be a guy in 2015. The video is the  fourth annual installment  of end -of-year roundups from The Representation Project, each of which highlights the damaging impact of gender roles.  From advertisements to movies and media, the video reveals the conflicting messages sent to men about masculinity — some negative, some positive.  In order to “be a man,” guys are told to objectify women and be “macho.” So, basically: via GIPHY  Thankfully, there are some men who are publicly pushing back on these gender norms, and advocating for women and healthy masculinity.  “Having those traits that make me traditionally masculine doesn’t exclude me from wanting gender equality,” actor and outspoken feminist Matt McGorry says in a clip featured in the video.    Actors Terry Crews and Dwayne Johnson , and “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver  also make heartening appearances.  As Johnson says towards the end of the video:  “The most important thing that I can do with my daughter is lead our life with love — not success, not fame.”  Yes, yes and more yes.  Also on HuffPost:  — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

This Book Doubles As A Fully Functioning Camera

Although we know we probably shouldn’t, we occasionally — in desperate situations — use our books for purposes other than reading. Thomas Piketty’s Capital , among its other revolutionary uses, makes for an excellent doorstop. Ethan Frome , that slender, chilling novel, is pretty okay for fanning yourself on a hot day. And Kelli Anderson’s new project, This Book Is a Camera , is, well, a functioning camera. A one-page book self-published by Anderson with the help of a grant, This Book Is a Camera is little more than a black sheet of paper with a hole in it, yet it can be folded up to function as a machine that captures images. For those who are married to their Instagram apps, but need a refresher on how photography actually works : Anderson’s book is a version of the camera obscura, an early version of the shutter-driven machines we’re more accustomed to today

Time for a Tech Ethics Council

As technology continues to outpace society’s ability to keep up with and assess it, it’s time for the creation of a national Tech Ethics Council. Composed of expert scientists, engineers, computer scientists and ethicists, such a council is needed to make simple and clear recommendations about complex moral and ethical issues . Photo courtesy of New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) The recent misuse of technology — when terrorists likely used encrypted messages for attacks around the globe — was shocking but predictable. The list of things to worry about and how technology can be abused or create unintended consequences is getting quite long and needs to be addressed. Recently in New Jersey a drone crashed into a car near an oil refinery and, apparently, the drone operator just grabbed the device and took off. If it had crashed into that refinery, it may have been a homeland-security nightmare

How to Infuse Social Media into a Conference of Tech-Naive Attendees

Conferences have long been opportunities to connect, share information, develop new working relationships and uncover new ways to approach solutions to vexing problems. Before the widespread use of technology and social media, that information was limited to those in attendance. Even then, connecting with other attendees could be difficult. Anyone unable to attend the conference missed out all together! The rising use of social media (most commonly Twitter) at conferences, allows information to be rapidly and widely shared with audiences beyond conference attendees. Although Twitter has increased in both popularity and use at conferences filled with communications, marketing, technology, and business professionals, the use of Twitter at conferences for many other academic disciplines has been slow to catch on. In part, this may be because many conference planners don’t take into account the opportunity a proactive social media strategy could have in generating buzz, attendance, media coverage and other positive marketing outcomes

Age of the Customer and Social Selling

We’ve all heard the creative examples and call outs of well-known retail brands that are driving product sales through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. These examples need to become the rule. Every industry and every brand can — and should — use social media to connect with customers. An airline can see where passengers are facing delays and proactively send them to the right agents to book them onto new flights.

George Zimmerman’s Horrific Twitter Is Gone, And It Won’t Be Missed

George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012, has been suspended from Twitter. Twitter took down Zimmerman’s account, @TherealGeorgeZ, on Thursday after multiple sources report he posted topless photos of a woman he said was his ex-girlfriend, and shared what he claimed were her email address and phone number. “She cheated on me with a dirty Muslim,” Zimmerman wrote in one tweet. “She’ll sleep with anyone.” He also accused the woman of stealing cash and a gun. Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman, confirmed to The Huffington Post in September that @TherealGeorgeZ, is authentic
