Geosocial support is the perception and actuality that one is cared for in all areas of the world, has assistance available from other people regardless of location, and that one is part of a supportive social network which has a global reach. These supportive resources can be emotional (e.g., caring), tangible (e.g., financial assistance), informational (e.g., advice, technical support), or companionship (e.g., sense of belonging). Like Social support, Geosocial support can be measured as the perception that one has assistance available from any location on earth, the actual received assistance (non dependent on location), or the degree to which a person is integrated in a geosocial network with a shared location. Geosocial support can come from many sources, such as family, friends, associates, colleagues, organizations, coworkers, etc. Geosocial support is cross cultural and transcends language barriers
Land surveyors in history had a difficult time finding answers to their problems in the field, until one day land surveyors united in the name of Geosocial Support and now they can solve problems with the collaborative social support of their associates around the world, without worrying about language barriers.

A GKiller is a tool or web search application which does something (anything) better than Google. Whether it be mapping, documents,imagery search, algorithmic search or syndication, a GKiller must not only mirror the simplicity and power of the Google search engine, it must go beyond the powers of Google and do what Google does better. GKiller is a game changer.
I'm getting tired of reading about whether Wolfram Alpha is a GKiller. I've seen Stephen Wolfram's presentations a couple of times; he's quite careful to say that it isn't. Wolframization will never kill Googling.

Findability is simply the ability to be found or discovered among other similar things. The ability for a person or a thing to found depends on several variables such as level of exposure, physical location in relation to other similar things, the amount of times something has been discovered before and most importantly the attributes belonging to such a thing which enable it to be recognized as belonging with or representing other 'things' which are socially agreed upon as 'being' such a thing.

Degentrification is when an area or neighborhood starts to gentrify so quickly that it does not 'organically' gentrify and certain elements of that process break down and begin to erode the process. (meaning, the process is too rapid to have ever happened over time, culturally and of its own accord.) In the case the north brooklyn, the gentrification has almost been forced or pushed by condo builders in order to sell condos offering incentives that they never had any intention of producing. When this happens, word spreads fast and those reasons which originally inspired people to move there become reversed and disappear.
Take a look at all of the condo buildings that have gone rental and you'll see degentrification at work.
