The Pioneer Behind @ComcastCares, Frank Eliason, Resigns

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Frank Eliason, the man behind the ballyhooed Twitter account @comcastcares, announced his resignation from giant cable and internet provider Comcast this afternoon. Companies interested in social media, and that’s just about all companies these days, have watched @comcastcares very closely.Eliason was named Senior Director in National Customer Operations at Comcast just one year ago and has only been at Comcast at all for less than 3 years. Stardom can be built up fast in the young world of social media, however, and as a widely studied ground-breaker Eliason could likely now get a job at almost any company in the world. A specific but unnamed opportunity to do social media work in the financial services industry, where Eliason has worked for years before, is next on his agenda, according to his blog post on the Comcast site.While “the man behind the curtain” has been a dominant metaphor for magic for many years, Eliason was instead the man in front of the curtain at Comcast. Working behind him were a team of people with personas like @ComcastBill and @ComcastBonnie. There was also a substantial amount of new social media tracking technology powering the ostensibly personalized customer care the company grew famous for.If you tweet about problems with Comcast, someone responds. Quickly. And they stick with you. It’s not just because you’re special though, or even just because they are. The Comcast customer service team uses the latest and greatest social media CRM (customer relationship management) software, behind the scenes.We described that technology in detail in April 2009, (This Machine Eats Tweets: The System Behind @Comcast and Others) at a time when the field of social media CRM was less widely adopted and discussed. Eliason and his team built an incredible amount of goodwill and industry admiration through their customer service work on Twitter. @ComcastCares will long be a case study taught in schools. Comcast hasn’t traditionally been a much-loved company and Eliason really made an impact on the public’s perception. (Was his resignation motivated by having been one-upped by the Old Spice guy this week and needing to do something new to regain his crown? Imagine if that were the case!)Can Eliason do something as marvelous in financial services? That’s no small challenge, and his next gig won’t be the first of its kind in the same way. It will, however, be interesting to watch.Starting today, you can follow Frank Eliason on his new Twitter account, @FrankEliason.

Suranjoy to open India’s boxing campaign today

first_imgOne year ago at the Asian Championships in Zhuhai, China, when flyweight Indian boxer Mayengbam Suranjoy clinched the title, he ended India’s 15-year long gold drought.This time around, when the Manipuri will step into the ring to begin his Asian Games campaign against Chatchai Butdee of Thailand at the Foshan Gymnasium in Guangzhou on Tuesday, he will be the best bet for India to help them end their 12-yearlong gold-less run at the Asiad Games.Digko Singh was the last Indian to win a gold at the 1998 Bangkok Asian Games. Now, as Suranjoy bids for the gold, his claim doesn’t look unrealistic.The 24-year-old boxer has clinched seven gold medals, including one at the recent Commonwealth Games, since March 2009 and is a clear favourite against Butdee whose claim to fame is reaching the quarter-finals of the World Championships last year and a gold at the South East Asian Games in Laos, also last year.The Thai is no threat to the mighty Indian, who is known for his electric moves and reflexes in the ring. But, at the same time, no Thai boxer can be taken lightly as the country is known to churn out the world and Olympic champions.On the other hand, Suranjoy is also fancied for the gold and he has the skills to emerge triumphant even against the best in Asia. His swiftness inside the ring often induces his opponents to commit mistakes. Unlike many Indian boxers, Suranjoy throws four-five punches in one burst and has better chances to log good scores.advertisementEven an ardent fan outside Thailand would know little about Butdee and at 25, he is known as the upcoming boxer. So, Tuesday clash against Suranjoy will be a test of quest for success for Butdee.last_img read more

Case of alleged spy for China tangled in prolonged secrecy disputes

first_imgOTTAWA — The case of a Canadian man accused of trying to spy for China is once again tied up in mysterious closed-door proceedings over confidential information.It has been more than five years since Qing Quentin Huang was arrested in Burlington, Ont., following an RCMP-led investigation called Project Seascape.Huang, an employee of Lloyd’s Register, a subcontractor to Irving Shipbuilding Inc., was charged under the Security of Information Act with attempting to communicate secrets to a foreign power.Police said the information related to elements of the federal shipbuilding strategy, which includes patrol ships, frigates, naval auxiliary vessels, science research vessels and ice breakers.Huang, who claims innocence, is free on bail.But the engineer’s criminal trial in Ontario court has been delayed as legal tussles over disclosure of information in the case play out in the Federal Court of Canada, the venue for deciding how much sensitive material can be kept under wraps.Ottawa recently filed a new application in Federal Court to shield information related to Huang’s case, although, given the nature of the proceedings, it is unclear precisely what the application is about.It comes two years after Huang asked a federal judge to release additional portions of a heavily redacted affidavit and warrant that authorized the Canadian Security Intelligence Service to intercept telecommunications at the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa.Huang was not a target of the warrant and had never been under CSIS investigation.However, the spy service advised the RCMP of phone calls Huang allegedly made to the embassy and claimed he “offered to provide Canadian military secrets” to the Chinese government. That prompted the police investigation resulting in Huang’s arrest.Huang contends the warrant opened the door to a breach of his charter guarantee against unreasonable search and seizure.His effort to find out more about the warrant continues after winding all the way to the Supreme Court, then back to the Federal Court for further consideration.Huang’s case grinds along amid fractured relations between Ottawa and Beijing. Canadian authorities arrested a Chinese executive of Huawei Technologies in Vancouver last year in response to a request from Washington, and China subsequently detained, then charged, two Canadians for alleged security infractions.Ottawa is also weighing the potential security risk of allowing Huawei, which employs hundreds of people in Canada, to help build the country’s next-generation 5G mobile networks.In a letter last year to the Supreme Court, Huang’s lawyer, Frank Addario, suggested the prolonged wrangling over document disclosure was endangering his client’s right to timely justice.The strict secrecy surrounding procedures for deciding disclosure mean Addario is excluded from closed-door hearings that deal with confidential material.A lawyer serving as amicus curiae — literally, a friend of the court — has been appointed to “represent the interests of justice” in these proceedings.A recent Federal Court order says the amicus will be allowed to present issues, arguments and evidence favouring Huang, as he sees fit, as well as challenge and respond to secret evidence from government lawyers.Addario wanted something more — an order obliging the amicus to act as if he were counsel for Huang.“This will reduce potential breaches of Mr. Huang’s fair trial rights and his liberty interest,” Addario argued in a submission to the court.Federal lawyers objected to the suggestion, saying the amicus is there to help the court, and “cannot also be obliged to represent and protect Mr. Huang’s interests.”— Follow @JimBronskill on TwitterJim Bronskill , The Canadian Presslast_img read more
