Thank you Madiba – your magic will forever be among us all. This was a common sentiment as people mourned the passing of a legend.South Africans lost their father and the world lost an icon when Nelson Mandela – Madiba, Tata – died at 8.50pm on 5 December at home in Houghton. It has brought tears, but also a celebration of his life not just to his family and friends, but to the world.Born 18 July 1918 in Mvezo, a small village in the Eastern Cape, Mandela was the country’s first black president. But he was more than that: he was a world statesman and a universal symbol of peace, unity, forgiveness and ubuntu. Tributes continue to pour out for the father of the Rainbow Nation.Bernard Fingwana says: “I am happy the man has finally reached the end of his journey and I thank him for all he has done, for not just us but the whole world.” He leaves a legacy that has changed the lives of many people throughout the world, but above all he has left everyone with the hope of a loving home for all.“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear,” Mandela said. His words inspired many people and changed their ways of thinking.“I feel very hurt knowing that he is gone,” says Phillipa TshabitsoPhillipa Tshibitso says: “I feel very hurt knowing that he is gone. I would like to say to all South Africans that, ‘Please we must all walk in his path.’ I would love to say to his family that we are crying with them.”Mandela’s message is universal: “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite,” he said in his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom.“We love you Tata and you will always be a part of everyone’s life. The nation will take all that you have done for us and keep moving towards building a world filled with peace, love and happiness… we are with his family, because Nelson Mandela is our freedom. We will pray with you and not for you,” says Mpilo Masokela.Again, Mandela’s words are inspirational: “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”Weeping, Caroline Nkamboyi says: “I did not want to believe that he was gone and as soon as I accepted it I became sad. What I would love to say to his family is that they must accept it because we are here for them too.”And his legacy lives on, urging ordinary people to do the extraordinary: “Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great, you can be that generation,” he said. “We must use time wisely and forever realise that the time is always ripe to do right.”“He brought freedom into every South African’s life,” says Selina Dikeledi (Images: Bhekumuzi Madakane)Bhekumuzi MadakaneSelina Dikeledi Kitsaweng says: “It all came as a sudden shock. He brought freedom into every South African’s life. I am where I am today because of him. Tata wherever you are, thank you for everything. In a way you brought me up too, so thank you.”Forever he will be missed, and the words “we love you Tata” are being heard loud and clear across the world. “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead,” he said. “I am the master of my fate and the captain of my destiny.”Gone but never forgotten, Madiba will live on in our hearts, his humility and humanity something which we can all strive to emulate. “When the history of our times is written, will we be remembered as the generation that turned our backs in a moment of global crisis or will it be recorded that we did the right thing?” he asked.South Africans – indeed all people – can follow his lead, working for others through his foundation, 46664, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, and giving of their time on Nelson Mandela International Day, and every day.But now, to the father of the nation, it is time to say goodbye. Hamba Kahle, Tata.
It’s one thing to have resolutions for the new year. I, for example, plan to lose weight, learn Python and design the perfect handbag. But since nothing satisfies like the quick achievement of a short-term goal, here are eight things every good nerd needs to to before the ball drops later this week.These tasks comprise a quick to-do list that will leave you feeling competent and prepared for the decade that approaches. Also, you can play the condescension chip and start chiding friends who haven’t checked off these items yet.1. Edit your privacy settings and friendships.Facebook’s maelstrom-causing privacy changes have given quite a few of us a head-scratching good time trying to figure out just how much of our private lives are to be made public. Before the new year begins, take a look at your settings on sites such as Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, LiveJournal and any other places you might be sharing personal content to make sure what you display is consistent with the public image you want to project. As more recruiters and employers hit the Web in search of info on individuals, it’s becoming ever more important to monitor and control our own identities. If you look back to the origin dates of some of your accounts, you might be surprised at what you thought was appropriate to share online in 2005.Also, while considering what’s private and public, take time to evaluate what a “friend,” “contact” or “follower” means to you and what types of information you share with different groups.2. Change your passwords.Safety first, friends. Social web security threats in 2009 were sweeping and surprised more than a few users with spam DMs, hacked accounts and malware of all kinds. Check out the password management tools recommended by a recently high-profile hacker (scroll to the last few paragraphs); for free or cheap, they’ll help you generate strong, random passwords and manage them from your computer.3. Own your name.I’ve conducted many a web search on many a professional geek this year, and I’ve been disappointed by how few of us have staked a meaningful claim to our online identities. If you haven’t already, buy a URL – preferably one that relates to the name you use professionally – and make friends with Google. If you don’t show up in the first results when you search for your name, get a crash course in SEO and ask friends to link to you. It’s good for your social life and your career if you seize the opportunity to tell the searching world about yourself rather than relegating that responsibility to LinkedIn, Facebook or some weirdo with the same name as you.4. Prune your feeds.When going through your RSS feeds, do you find yourself impatiently scrolling more than you’re intently skimming? Is your list of unread items becoming unmanagable? The end of the year is a perfect time to get rid of the content you’re not reading and group the stuff you are. Take some time this week to organize, delete and add feeds, thereby optimizing your feed-reading experience. Try tools such as NetNewsWire’s “dinosaurs” and “least attention” features that weed out unread or dormant feeds, and consider implementing tools such as Lazyfeed or Guzzle.it that can bring relevant results from fresh sources. And make sure the feeds you own are easy for others to find, too.5. Find a better mobile.If you don’t have a smartphone already, chances are you’ll desperately need one next year. And if you already have one, think long and hard about whether you’re happy with your service, network and interface.While you might not be able to run out and buy your dream device before 2010 rolls around, visit a few retailers, read some reviews and have your eye on a good mobile to purchase next year. Mobile tech keeps on booming, and you’ll want to ensure a frustration-free year as new apps and OSes roll out.6. Update copyright notices on your website.Here’s a simple, obvious and necessary reminder. Does your website currently claim a copyright year of 2007? While it doesn’t put you on the foul side of the law, it does look a bit silly as we head into a new decade. The Next Web has a good bit of dynamic code for site owners.7. Revisit your blog.That poor, neglected old beast might be long overdue for a design facelift, a blogroll refresh or even just a few new posts. While you’re at it, why not set automatic reminders to periodically bug you about posting in the new year? On a more mission-critical note, you’ll also want to make sure you’re using the most updated version of your CMS; not doing so can can lead to problems from broken plugins to getting hacked. And while you’re at it, the year’s end might also be a good time to consider switching up your CMS service altogether.8. Back up your data.Hacks and hardware failures happen. Before 2010, make sure as much of your data as possible is protected. From calendars and contacts to blog posts and work projects, more and more of us are relying on networks of servers and startups to keep us running. So, now might be a good time to download and back up files of LinkedIn contacts and WordPress posts – anything that’s valuable to you and portable. Think of it this way: You – or at least parts of you – live in the Internet. If the Internet caught on fire, what would you grab to carry with you out of the blaze?We hope this list helps you all get a few housekeeping items squared away in time for a great New Year’s Eve filled with peace of mind and a smug sense of superiority over your fellow nerds.

Sales were up 36% from the fourth quarter of 2011.Earnings also beat expectations, coming in at $10.65 per share versus the $10.52 that Wall Street was expecting.Sales for the full year hit $50.2 billion, up 32% from $37.9 billion last year.Looking AheadTo be sure, Google faces some long-term challenges as the world moves to mobile devices, where it’s more difficult to make money selling ads than on the desktop, where Google built its business.Nevertheless Google CEO Larry Page said in a statement that, “In today’s multi-screen world we face tremendous opportunities. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be at Google.”Some observers had become concerned that Google might fall short. A few days ago Google’s treasurer warned on the Google investor relations blog that some analysts were not correctly taking into account the sale of Motorola’s Home division. Some took the post as an indication of weakness in Google’s business.A Lot To LikeBut Google has much to feel good about these days. Its Android operating system now holds 75% share in smartphones, versus 15% for Apple. Android is also catching up in tablets.Google appears to be surviving the legal assault that Apple launched against Android back in 2010. And it recently managed to sidestep an investigation brought by the Federal Trade Commission by settling without making any huge concessions.As Page pointed out in comments during the analyst call, Google’s apps like Maps, Gmail and others have become among the most popular on Apple’s platform. The new version of Maps, he said, was downloaded 10 million times in its first 48 hours on the Apple App Store.In the past year Google has put a new emphasis on design, and “we’ve made real progress making more beautiful and intuitive products,” Page said.Image courtesy of Reuters. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now It costs money to provide your people with professional training. The better the training, the more money it costs, as you would expect. The bigger and the more important the outcomes, the more you are likely to spend.Coaching costs money, too. Really good coaching costs much more than you might expect. But if you want to identify the obstacles (always internal) and blast through to better performance, you have to pay the price. There isn’t anything that produces greater results faster than good coaching, but it isn’t cheap.But training and coaching are expensive in other ways. To provide people with training opportunities, you have to take them off the field. While your people are being trained, they’re not working. The same is true of coaching; it takes time. It’s hours away from the work you hired people to do.Change comes with a price, too. As you train and coach people, there is a serious lag time between the interactions and the results. It’s very much like driving on ice; you hit the brakes and turn the wheel, but it takes time for the wheel to catch. The time it takes for your people to produce new results is another cost.The Real ExpenseBut if you believe training and coaching is expensive, try not training and coaching your people. The real expense is having assets that aren’t fully developed. What’s expensive is the time you lose not producing the results you are really capable of producing. The opportunity cost far exceeds anything you might pay for training or coaching, regardless of the expense.You think training and development is expensive? What’s really expensive is not training and coaching your people.QuestionsWhy is training and coaching not considered an investment?What percentage of your income do you invest in your personal and professional development?How much time do you take off the field and how often?What do you do to ensure you get a return on your investment?
