Digital business, no human sacrifice. CIO. Civics. Dad. Trail runner. Keynotes. Helper. Foe of sociopath tech, sacred cows, & bullies. How can I help you?
In this webcast, experts discuss the most effective approaches to securing Internet-enabled systemYou don't have time for cute little Facebook quizzes. But in your grizzled IT career, an OS or two has rubbed off on you: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, or Chrome OS? Your IT career has been an odyssey from server jockey to architect to having the C-suite in your sights. You can't help but see the parallel in how end-user computing's evolved from clunky beige CRT monitors to laptops to ultrabooks.
Post 4 of 10 in our series on what we think won’t work for digital organizations and what will. Benjamin Franklin famously said, “three can keep a secret if two are dead.” This, combined with speed of communication in the digital age, means that keeping secrets is just a stupid idea. How long does it take to get a message from San Francisco to New York City? Today, the answer is measured in the milliseconds.
I am a fan of business performance metrics the way that I’m a fan of maps and compasses: Too much focus on the map, and you forget to do things like see the sights. To stop and meditate along your hike. To greet others on the trail. To climb the tower and see if you still want to be going in that direction, despite all indicators showing you that you are still going towards the destination. Too little, and you might know where you’re going, but you have no idea where you are.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
