Found your twin . Everyone has a twin and Mark Joyner
,who is and has been a very successful online Entrepreneur for
many years. Even a New York Times BestSeller creation expert.
You will see him in the short Video at the attached link. Don't
believe me......see for yourself. And by the way this is a compliment
to you or maybe to him. Only time will tell.
PS: Value Added =Socialize Upgrade via Apptopia social Forum?
Do you think "assimilating" a few into SOCIALIZE as value added to
the Value add? You will see the connections I'm sure.
Keith, lol no I don't have a twin, but he is a good looking bald guy for sure!
What do you think about the content of his site? I'll have to dig into it.
The resemblance is not just a bald head, though thats a starting point. His"Mutiny"effort is his latest information/trend marketing product but I have not "vetted" it's particular content.His"Simpleology"site is his primary vehicle currently but he is a serial Entrepreneur that many consider a marketing wizard and even a pioneer in online commerce. Self Promotion is a forte of his which mirrors what I have seen you do along the way too.I am certain this Mutiny "product will provide some Futurist Alvin Toffler like trends spotting.
So that mirror image deficit is not nearly as important in the "Twin" comment.The Partnering he is doing with Apptopia and the "natural" distribution channel it represents through offering the Value Added stickiness anyone selling their APP would want and the increase in Sales Price they can get by adding SOCIALIZE. Thats what spurred this post.
Hope this helps and is a number 1+.
I am interested in marketing a few Domain Names.
They are SOC. IALIZE, SOC. ialized ,CO. NNECTED.,
and I recently added "ZIGZAGZAP, XUBERS.,and
Xtremium.. They are all dot COM's.
The ialize ,ialized, and nnected can
create more than just one word or
combination they have more possibilities.
My Imagination develops numerous possible
APPlications and scenarios,the first of which is
an animation that shows SOC. approaching and then coupling with IALIZE which represents SOCIALIZE functionality coming together with the APP. Same animation with CO.connecting with NNECTED. Once Soc.ialize becomes SOC.IALIZED it is also CO.NNECTED. GettingSOC.IALIZED is GettingCO.NNECTED .
APPTOPIA is a great name
and has the same positive vibe
as the 2 newest names I have available.
AppiPlanet . com
So, let me know what you think is possible?
I am not nearly as versed in promoting as I
would like to be and know I need help.

I'll check the Apptopia partnership out.
But in regards to domain names: Are these domain names you want to buy? What service would be behind the name? The name is only a starting point to the actual service utilizing the name -- that's where the focus needs to be.
They belong to me. Creating a "Possibility Stage" that gives vision to what they might become is the best I can do . The Animation as just a story board or cartoon strip could be a start.
The NetAppiness and the AppiPlanet evoke Happiness for the Net, The App world and the Planet. Instead of GDP which is a measure of a countries readiness to wage WAR their is work being done on a Happiness Index .
Socialize , who would know better than you, is a prime example of doing what you do
best while being both dependent and interdependent on and with other people.
The World of WAR and scarcity versus a cooperative Social functioning that enhances the user choices and convenience on a sustainable basis and not the Buyer beware framework of last century.
Buyer Beware even looks different as I span the bridge these changes in outlook create. But Back to Selling a Concept of possibility. "Just a Name" can and is the result of benign neglect and the assumption we know what we know. A definition can and does exist before the Word it will define
comes into existence. APP is proof of the melding process and the confusion we all go through searching for the "right word" to describe something. The action and what is not said are both difficult to put into words that then becomes an identity. A name is a platform of the sort that makes the communication exchange possible. The adage that a Picture is worth 10,000 words assumes we know what words are worth in the value exchange. Was the Picture first or were the words that are used to describe the picture the antecedent? APP goes beyond APPLE and is the magic carpet we ride to gain access to our wishes and desires. I might even argue that APP is representative of our "LIFE FORCE". Finding those who value what a good name provides is my underlying question.
If the right audience is not found even Shakespeare as a name means nothing.
Jonathanscard -- a geeky 2.0 take on the "give a penny, leave a penny" concept -- has been all over the news recently (if you haven't heard the backstory, this is a good place to start). I'm surprised at all the harsh words over my brother Sam's hacking of the social experiment.
For example, one HackerNews commentator wrote, "Did Sam Odio's blog get hacked? Because I refuse to believe that the Sam whose comments I've been reading on HN would steal from someone. Sam how is what you're doing different from what Anonymous et al are doing? However irritating Jonathan's experiment is, it doesn't give you the right to impose you idea of morality on them" and plenty of other comments.
And It's funny to see those comments on a site titled "HackerNews."

And It's funny to see those comments on a site titled "HackerNews." The $625 amount Sam transferred off of Jonathanscard onto another Starbucks card was the exact amount my startup, Socialize donated to the card to promote its SDK Speed Challenge competition. That was not an accident. Sam took a social experiment and ran a social experiment on it. The money that he transferred was funded by Socialize, and Sam's donating the funds to a good cause. The card has already been bid on eBay past its face value, garnering even more funds for Save the Children (which is an awesome hat trick.) Jonathanscard was a social experiment, so isn't what happened exactly the point? 8/14 UPDATE: Read Sam's update about the experiment and his Q&A about the reaction he's been getting
Hypothetical situation: imagine that you have a twin with the same goals as you. If you want to become the CEO of your company, so does he; if you want to date that cute girl who you always see at the grocery store, so does he; if you want to be the leading blogger on dog sweaters, so does he. You both have the same resources, too. He has a twin bank account, knows all the same people, and lives right next door to you.
Let's assume, too, that only one person can reach your goal. So if your goal is to run a marathon, and he does it first, you don't get to run a marathon. This makes him an evil twin.
The one difference between you and your evil twin are your methods. You have a plan, and he has a different one.
