I'm back. I'm back. I'm back!

There's a lot of exciting things happening with Mis Tribus and for me personally.  I've wanted to start sharing more, but most of belongs on X-cito.com, but my WordPress installation is fried.

Anyway, were to start.  Well the most exciting stuff right now is my research on Victor Vasarely, hyperbolic geometry, and M.C. Escher.  One of my all time favorites. Right up there with Picasso and Dali.

I'm currently challenged on how to reproduce some of the images by Vasarely or Escher in Microsoft Visio. Known as a strong technical drawing program, I believe that it has the flexibility to help me learn hyperbolic geometry.  It think it will be extremely helpful in figuring out how to build pleasing, or not, programs based on live video camera feeds.

In this sense, programs are not computer programs, but artistic programs based on Vasarely's Planetary Foklore and plastic alphabet.

Here's a piece I did with MS Photodraw.  I call it "Planetary Chicken Folklore no366", enjoy:

June Social Media Dashboard

In last month's version of this update, I only included my bit.ly statistics.  I've now been able to bring together a significant number of new metrics.  This is very exciting,  it's the first time I've tried to establish my social footprint.

I've been using my max-strategy for about 18 months, in that time, this is my social network:
  • bit.ly links created: 6,385 
  • bit.ly clicks: 1,649 
  • Engagement: 28.5%
  • Countries reached: 46
That's less links and less clicks than May, but a higher engagement rate.  Collecting my stats I saw a graphic on the bit.ly statistics page, the number of countries generating those 1,649 clicks.  I think that is amazing.  People in 46 countries are consuming my content.  Super cool!

New Metrics

I finally put together some aggregate statistics from the many social networking systems I use; they are also my social network.  I call this the "human limit;"  the most any one person can do to generate engagement.  I'm convinced, however, that any significant growth in my social network (or anyone who wants to exceed their own human limit) can only come from automation, robots, or agents.  Plain and simple, artificial intelligence (AI).  Much more on than soon.

Here's my human-limited social network:
  • Facebook Friends: 1,334
  • Mis Tribus Page on Facebook: 46
  • LinkedIn Connections: 939
  • LinkedIn Followers for Mis Tribus: 6
  • Twitter Followers (across a stable of accounts owned by Mis Tribus): 10,474
  • All Time Blogger Views (across a stable of blogs on multiple domains): 240,646
  • Paper.li Views: 4,981
  • Pinterest: 134
