NOTE:  Good article about this topic from a lawyer at:  http://snipurl.com/u40o2


One of the first times i used google to find a specific individual was when i needed to contact Drew Bledsoe, who at the time was the New England Quarterback for the New England Patriots, the team that had recently lost in the Super Bowl to Brett Favre's Green Bay Packers.  I had learned that Drew's agent at the time was Leigh Steinberg, who is often credited, as Wikipedia reports, "as the real life inspiration of the sports agent from the film JERRY MAGUIRE."  In fact, Steinberg is often credited with creating the era and industry of the Super Sports Agent.  Steinberg, in 1998, had a sports agency partnership which he later sold to a sports management group for over $100 million.  During his multi-decade career, Steinberg represented an elite group of clients, including Super Bowl winning quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger, Steve Young, Troy Aikman, and promising star Matt Leinart.  Okay, enough background.


My google search on Steinberg brought back at the top the following line:  "NFL Agent Leigh Steinberg Arrested for Drunk in Public ..."  Now that is not the type of headline that a super-star agent should want a potential big-star client to see upon searching for an agent's name.  This experience led me to form a business that created a number of websites for sports agents, including the agent for Barry Sanders, one of the most prolific running backs in NFL history.  But the problem was that most sports agents did not want to use the same company to develop their websites, as their business for limited stars is so competitive.  The risk of vital secret data being compromised was too great from their perspective, if one website developer handled many sports agents.  But that is another story.  Back to the google search story.


Have you tried searching on your name in quotations to see what the top google returns are?  Frequently, individuals find that rather than a promotion to CEO being highlighted, a tragic divorce rises to the top and the ugly details of the divorce proceedings, especially when disgruntled parties are involved and talk publicly. If you are not proactive at developing web content to push tangential and negative news away from top searches, you could inadvertently end up damaging your reputation, impeding business opportunities, diminishing business growth, and causing swirling rumors to spread that become impossible to contain (and haunt you for the rest of your life).  Once negativity creeps into the picture, it is frequently a losing battle to defend yourself:  The more you defend, the more guilty you look.  The less you defend, the more guilty you look.  We really want to avoid these situations if we are serious individuals passionately trying to accomplish major goals to help others.


I am exploring ways to gain mastery over the top 2 pages of google returns for a serious individual who wants to be creative and help others. When i first checked on my own name "Brad Acker," none of the first 20 entries were mine and there were 5,200 Brad Acker’s found.  After 2 months of work, most of the entries are mine, and with a continued strategy that i am employing via heuristic approach, i may soon be the only Brad Acker in the first 5 pages of google search returns on my name in another few months.  I am providing information about myself that is accurate, revealing, and that shows i am seriously committed to helping young talented artists and entrepreneurs leverage social network power to develop life-long income streams.  Any negative information or rumors started by envious individuals will not appear.  In another two months, i will have formulated a complete strategy, or the "magic formula," to help anyone who is passionate with serious purpose to gain a natural audience and secure income streams by leveraging the new powerful resources of the social web.

Ray Kurzweil is the best person i know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence. His intriguing new book envisions a future in which information technologies have advanced so far and fast that they enable humanity to transcend its biological limitations – transforming our lives in ways we can’t yet imagine.

Ray Kurzweil has been honored by 3 presidents for his bold pioneering technological advancements; 19 universities have awarded him honorary doctorates, and MIT has given him its $500,000 Lemelson Prize, the world’s largest prize for innovation.  Dr. Kurzweil predicts an arriving era, within most of our lifetimes, in which human intelligence is enhanced by nanobotic technologies and becomes trillions of times more powerful than it is today. Dr. Kurzweil sees the dawning of a new civilization in which individuals can vastly amplify their creativity and become eternally engaged in creative bliss. As nanobotic technologies allow us to rewrite the DNA code to organs in our bodies, we will transcend biology as well as politics. There will be no need for external authority or national governments, and Butterfly Anarchy will be upon us.

Daily Video Coming Soon

About June of last year, I began thinking about how one could make money making personal videos on YouTube.  Many YouTubers put their hearts into creating cogent videos that help them make sense out of an often confusing world, but that also help other people as well. Why shouldn’t creators be rewarded for their thinking and sharing? And why can’t we call be creators (if we have passionate desires)? 


The key question is this: How can creative people earn money on the Internet today, especially when so many people have been conditioned to get every good information product for free. My answer to this question and the motivation for establishing ACE is that the best creators need to charge a nominal fee, and individuals will pay a nominal fee. What is a nominal fee? $10-$25 a month! That’s my conclusion, because i personally witness almost everyone frivolously spending these amounts on coffee or dangerously wasting this money on alcoholic and tobacco consumption. If creators charged these nominal fees, in fact, they might help reduce deaths resulting from alcohol and tobacco!  I just realized recently that i am no longer watching cable TV, and I’m paying about $75 a month for what i do not watch. So there is where i can find the cash to pay creators!!! How about you?
