 The press release is just an intimidating wall of text, and the copy rough going, but from what i can sort out Intel is at NRF and showing off its take on the future of digital signage in retail. It just screams show me a video (not that one is included with the release) so I searched...
Standing at the threshold of 2010, I can’t help but wonder where our focus in technology will turn. In the past 10 years, we’ve had the fortune of many, many technology advances. Today, most everyone has a cell phone…and it seems most have traded a cell phone for a smart phone the like...
It’s been three weeks since I wrapped up teaching a course covering Interactive Marketing at Georgetown’s School of Continuing Studies. The topic for our last session was a doozy - social media, and in particular how social media can be used to achieve business or career-related object...
Marginal Revolution has a terrific post about giving advice. I find myself conflicted about the topic. Although I am an occasional consultant and adviser, I don't think of myself as giving advice. Sometimes I know stuff (or think that I do) or have opinions that I'll offer if asked...

Let's read the analysis of this Turkish newspaper Zaman looking for answers in the age of columnists. The older your columnist, the faster your circulation goes down the tube is the theory presented in the article. "Turkey has a young population, with almost half of its citizens under ...
At least a dozen times during the holidays I was asked in one way or another, ""What is this Twitter thingy and do I need to get on it?" This is my elevator pitch to people who ask me. I try to do this in 5 minutes or less, but there are a lot of follow-up questions. :-)

The definition I like best for the word “conversation” comes from Dictionary.com: “Conversation: the informal interchange of thoughts, information, etc., by spoken words; oral communication between persons; talk; colloquy.” But notice that the dictionary hasn...
We talk a lot about social media on Marketing Trenches. And for good reason - Social media seems to be at least one item on the agenda for about 90% of the meetings we have these days. Everyone wants to run 100 miles an hour to do something on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. I wrote ab...

During my college years, between 1979-82, I worked at Hürriyet as an editorial cartoonist reporting to Doğan Hızlan. I also published my political cartoons in Cumhuriyet and Gırgır. My first cartoon appeared in Oğuz Aral's Girgir in 1974, when I was 14, which was also the beginning of ...
As you head into to 2010, no doubt you'll be thinking about business goals. Perhaps you already have a mental to-do list: blogging and Tweeting more, networking more, starting a Facebook group or uploading video content. Once New Year's has worn off, you just want to jump in and get st...

Arguably, 2009 featured an insane level of “we will not let this story go.” Already saturated news stories were repeated - endlessly - way past the point of saturation. From balloon boy to Octomom to Gosselin vs. Gosselin to Amanda Knox, the same B-level stories were relentlessly beate...
Lots of companies – especially those in B2B – still talk about (or request) PR services that increasingly strike me as tired, fading or dead. Press tours & press briefings – yes, there are still industries where the press tour is alive and well (entertainment!) but most reporters, edit...
This year we have seen almost every company, every blogger and his duck, feverishly posting their "annual predictions" before the December 31 deadline, as if there is such a deadline, and as if anyone cares what they think in most cases. This is followed by a dozen or so 'paid' predict...
How can we make system administration more social (in the social networking sense)? And, more important, does anyone want to make it more social? I’ve been thinking about this recently because I’m using Twitter and participating in the community of VMware and cloud enthusiasts who are ...
I really don’t have any problems with Facebook whatsoever since I don’t really use it in any meaningful way (can it be used in such a way at all?). But that does not mean that Facebook does not have some serius security problems. In fact I could write a book about them if I could find ...

The National Association of Citizen Journalists was formed out of a need that I discovered as the publisher of a weekly paper in suburban Denver. For more than a decade, I published a popular, free entertainment weekly tabloid in Douglas County, Colo., that had lots of fun stuff to rea...
Social networking may be all the rage, but when it comes to sharing links, content, pictures and ideas—email remains the star. And not just by a little bit. According to a StrongMail study, "fully 86% of sharing activity related to social programs run on [their] platform in Q3 3009 was...
Think about what you do every day. And bare with the drama but... you likely get into a multi-thousand-point vehicle powered with explosive gasses, you head down the road with other similar vehicles, risking life and limb to get to and from work, the store, home, and road trips. Drivi...

In a city like Hanoi, people concentrate on their daily lives, with little regard to something as small as the power company digging up a sidewalk to bury high voltage power cabling. When you are concerned about your children getting to school on time, you do not concern yourself with ...
Everyone knows the tale of John and Mary. Let´s consider a more modern version of it. John is the best student in class, but is somewhat introspective. His top grades come from maths and physics. He is apparently shy, but very observant and with a strategic/analytical thinking that wou...
I think there is a deep cultural shift occurring that started somewhere in the early 1980s. I don’t have a source for that… just my thoughts. I think it started near the time when MTV began. MTV changed the way we were entertained. Throw in the internet, cell phones and a growing globa...

Human beings have an amazing capacity to adapt. But adapting too easily in the face of discomfort can leave us stuck in a no-way-out situation. It's the same in business. Our revenues are dropping so we cut some staff, then more staff. The next thing you know we're operating on a shoes...
Salim Ismail is the executive director of Singularity University. He explains that the U researches how to understand non-linear phenomena. I ask him whether that understanding has to be emergent.
