KLM Royal Dutch Airlines uses passengers to be a social business with Meet & Seat
Chris Miller    

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines launched a program called Meet & Seat to passengers on select flights that allows you as the passenger to hook your LinkedIn and Facebook profiles to your itinerary.  The linking allows you to browse other passengers to change your seat to sit near others with similar interests or business opportunity.

The question of privacy should immediately come to mind and how they use this shared data. I dig into that and my theory of some futures they could offer. This first quote from their main initiative page gives the basic privacy understanding:



Profile and privacy

If other passengers on your flight have shared their details through Meet & Seat after you have, we will send you an e-mail.

You can always choose to show less or more profile details, or remove your profile details from the seat map entirely. Simply log in to Manage my Booking, go to the ‘Seating’ tab and click ‘Meet & Seat’. Here you can edit your profile details.

KLM will not use your profile details for any other purpose than Meet & Seat, nor will we share your details with third parties. Your details will be removed automatically 48 hours after your flight has departed.

You are able to change your seat as often as you wish for participating in this initiative, but if you cancel sharing or wait until 48 hours before the flight the seats become locked and you can no longer see passengers seats.

Does this make KLM a social business? No.  They are embracing social into their flight planning in hopes of making it more enjoyable for the passengers, but they do not monitor the decision making process in how you move your seat around.  I am thinking they will watch to see how many times a person moves seats and using the shared profile information the types of services they can build and offer to further make the flights productive for travelers.  This includes social interaction not for business purposes.

Could you see a social section on flights for gaming with a game catalog? A section for those interested in music with KLM providing a catalog of music to listen to?  Total quiet zones? The possibilities and ideas to take them a step above is endless.  It all revolves on how they treat the access to the data the passengers are sharing with each other since this is not linked to their frequent flyer profile.  Yet.

After reading deeper into the privacy controls it appears as if KLM will do nothing with the data and remove your linked profile within 48 hours after the flight completes. This includes sharing with third parties or even their own internal marketing.

IBM officially announced via a live event and webcast IBM Verse, formerly IBM Mail Next, as a new way to interact with your email using advanced analytics and a new user interface. There was a lot of anticipation and marketing put into the launch. Here are some of my thoughts and what the press thought. We can start with the IBM posting from the Social Software blog entry defining the design principles that inspired the work and the new personas they built to go along with it.

SOL REPUBLIC PUNK Wireless Bluetooth Speaker review
Fri, Nov 14th 2014 9:17a   Chris Miller
The SOL REPUBLIC PUNK Wireless Bluetooth Speaker did not disappoint for it's durability and ruggedness. We take our reviews serious and we have reviewed quite a few Bluetooth speakers (some with mics for calls too). The SOL Republic Punk met everything it advertised. We received it in black but it comes in a few colors. Setup was simplistic as expected being a Bluetooth speaker. We also connected it via the 3.5mm cable. Both provided the same sound quality as long as you are in range f [read] Keywords: archive wireless

IBM Mail Next versus Microsoft De-Clutter early thoughts
Wed, Nov 12th 2014 9:31a   Chris Miller
IBM is announcing Mail Next shortly and Microsoft launched De-Clutter for Office 365 today. Both promise to hide your email bring the important mail to the front for you to work better. The goal of each is to learn your email behavior and start working for you via analytics and consistent actions you perform in your email. For example, if in your organization tree your direct manager sends email, then the system would recognize you need to see that email from them constantly.

Braven BRV-X Bluetooth Speaker review
Tue, Nov 4th 2014 12:21p   Chris Miller
I was impressed right away with this Braven BRV-X bluetooth speaker. The sound was clear. It is waterproof and has an internal battery for charging your devices while you stream your music. Finding a bluetooth speaker that is outdoor ready can get very costly. Luckily the Braven BRV-X bluetooth speaker (available at AT&T stores and Amazon) solves this an many other issues. The waterproof capability is great for having it outdoors near the water and not being afraid of a simple splash. Ju [read] Keywords: archive

Whistle Activity Monitor For Dogs review
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 8:51a   Chris Miller
The Whistle Activity Monitor for Dogs is an interesting way to gauge how much activity and keep a diary of food and other notes about your dog. The Whistle Activity Monitor for Dogs device itself was sturdy, waterproof and stayed clasped with the double locking rubber strap. It kept the Whistle close to the neck and out of the way. We played with location a couple times on the collar to see where it didn't bother the pet and was out of the way. Where they wear it on the collar should not m [read] Keywords: notes archive password wifi

Private Meeting Information in the RnR Database in IBM Domino
Thu, Oct 30th 2014 10:32a   Chris Miller
Have you ever had a users private meeting information from their calendar show in the RnR database in IBM Domino? This is normally something most users would not want. Luckily there is an easy way to prevent it from happening. IBM has had a recommendation since 7.0.3 to place a server side notes.ini variable to place a new descriptor in the database so as to not show any potential private data from entries marked Private.The downside to this setting is that older entries already in the dat [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes database server

Protecting Directories on a Web Server
Tue, Oct 28th 2014 8:27a   Chris Miller
The Domino web server is still powerful (never mind the current POODLE and SHA-2 talks and fixes) and offers the easily ability to control access via File Protections Documents. Groups and users can be listed allowing or blocking access to files and directories served by the Domino web server. Since .nsf files already have their own access controls, these File Protections extend to files such as HTML, JPEG, and GIF that you can enforce file protection for that browser users can access.
