CES 2009: AMD and Image Metrics [HD] AMD first shows the new HP dv2, a small computer that uses the AMD Neo processor, a 1.6 Ghz, 25 watt CPU that's part of their Yukon chipset. It's a very interesting little machine - far more powerful than a netbook, but starts at $699 USD, so not that much more expensive than most of them. AMD also talked a little about their new Phenom II CPU, and how it forms a pillar in their new Dragon platform. The Phenom II CPU has been overclocked to 6.3 Ghz with liquid nitrogen, and to 3.7 Ghz with air cooling. They stressed that they believe the experience of using a computer is about more than the speed of the CPU. I agree, except when I'm having to render a huge HD video file; then it's ALL about the speed of the CPU. They talked a little about the Fusion Render Cloud, but not in very much detail - I suspect this is still too new of an initiative to have much in the way of detail. After AMD talked, Image Metrics got up to show what they've been able to do with ATI GPUs - and the results are quite impressive! Filmed at CNTRSTG
Social media metrics with Jim Sterne, Chairman, Web ***ytics Association at SES London 2010 Byron Gordon, SEO-PR, interviews the godfather of online marketing, Jim Sterne, Chairman of the Web ***ytics Association and founder of eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit. Jim Sterne begins by describing marketing as the use of sheep and chickens. In the beginning, says Sterne, and for thousands of years, marketing and sales was two people bartering. That is how marketing was done and a price was reached. 150 years ago, the price tag was invented changing the dynamic between buyer and seller and giving the seller the opportunity to mass promote their product but ignore the actual needs and wants of their customers. Sterne says the Internet has brought back one to one marketing and the rise of social media now makes it necessary for companies to implement more than ever. Jim then gives goes on to give an example of social media measurement by citing Kentucky Fried Chickens use of their logo to measure their public awareness of their brand. Jim then goes on to discuss his upcoming book, Social Media Metrics, about classic advertising tools for awareness, reach, frequency, and to measure sentiment, influence, including the most influential topics relating to brand, and what are the business results and value of engagements using social media.

Article-Level Metrics at PLoS - what are they, and why should you care Article-level Metrics at PLoS (an alternate way to evaluate impact): A talk by Dr. Peter Binfield on November 9 at UC Berkeley The Impact Factor of a journal (a measure of the number of citations to an entire journal) is commonly used by scientists and administrators as one indicator of the quality of individual articles within that journal. With the advent of the internet it is now possible to measure the worth of an individual article via so-called 'article-level metrics' (metrics which include citations, usage, bookmarks, blog coverage, and post publication commentary for a single article), and in this respect PLoS leads the world providing the data to allow this ***ysis. Dr. Peter Binfield is Managing Editor of PLoS ONE (an open access title; the third largest journal in the world; and the recent winner of a prestigious award for 'publishing innovation').
