“Rudeness is a weak man’s imitation of strength,” said Eric Hoffer.
Actually, it seems like any negative behavior is a weak man’s imitation of strength. Or, it may be a function of all the past behaviors and baggage they’ve picked up along life’s journey, especially childhood!
Not that too many people care, but I think they do, mostly :). I mean, when you look at the fact that there is a fundamental economic shift happening.Information is becoming more valuable than tangible assets, products, services, and even money (to a certain extent).
“There are currently 141 unicorn companies globally. Recently, Mark Suster and the team at Upfront Ventures published their Venture Outlook 2016 report, which highlighted the insane pace at which billion-dollar companies are being created. With this in mind, ...
So far, these are looking interesting…soup, meats, yams, beans, stuffing, cranberry sauce, dessert, hmmm…
TBD: bread, gravy, mashed potatoes, and more…
This article is a very interesting way to look at computing.
“We analyzed many computing technologies to identify the principles on which they are based, and we studied how what aspects of computation are influencing other fields. From this, we concluded that computing principles can be grouped into seven categories:
Computation (meaning and limits of computation)
Communication (reliable data transmission)
Coordination (cooperation among networked entities)
Recollection (storage and retrieval of information)
Automation (meaning and limits ...
What is minimum excellent delivery (MED), and how is it different than a minimum viable product (MVP)? What about ROI? Where does that fit?
The purpose of this article is to answer these questions and offer a compendium of relevant resources and links, ultimately a) letting my brain run free, explore, and apply agile concepts in my current work streams and b) hopefully, in the process, proposing a way to expand the value of the minimum viable ...
There are many situations where people need to describe the data science process.
Much like my previous post, these 21 diagrams are curated from multiple sources. Collectively, thy provide a solid, visual representation of the data science process.
Considering these processes need to scale over time, this visual exploration begins “the industrial designer’s method” of exploration for innovative thinking.
Given the fact that these 12 diagrams (with one duplicate) explain or define data science and come from multiple sources, they do a great job collectively defining the discipline in pictures.
As someone who does product and content marketing for a few companies in the data science space, there is often some education or level-setting required to ensure people understand what data science is, why data science is unique, and what data science can do.
When creating content, when do we reach “good enough” versus putting in the extra time to make it great?
Many moons ago, I was working on a presentation for an event and would also be distributed online. Upon reaching a milestone, I had to sit back and wonder about our goal…what was the most effective way to get there…the optimal way? Was the output and preparation A++? Should it be? Of course, perfectionism is in my nature and probably a personality flaw. They say perfectionists are obsessive. ...
Wow. Haven’t been posting to my blog since September of 2014.
While I haven’t used it as much as I used to and mostly use this as a personal journal (i.e. not trying to build traffic), I’ve needed an important hiatus from all social media.
Looks like I might be a little more back in the saddle now.
A CMO, an entrepreneur, and an industrial designer walk into a bar…
- The CMO sits down and says to the bartender, “I’ll have a local craft beer. Our team needs new ideas for things we are capable of delivering to our customers.”
- The entrepreneur sits down and says to the bartender, “I’ll have a martini, shaken not stirred. I just sold this idea and need to go figure out how to deliver it to my customers.”
- The industrial designer sits down and says to the bartender, “I’ll have ...
An accomplished digital marketer and friend of mine, Eric Schneider, started this dialogue and article on ZDNet with Paul Greenberg (Social CRM).
The title is “Check out the Digital Factory: Forging engagement through strategy, data, and interaction” and is a guest post that Paul introduces.
While I don’t plan to get into to much detail on my own blog, I wanted to capture the initial thoughts here (mainly for myself).
Eric – Per your request…here are ...
As I was working on this case study about how Pinterest uses Redis.
By the end, I was so inspired that I decided to bling up a little badge.
Still, I am very happy with the result.
It was voted off the original post, but, in my heart, this little guy really deserves to live out there on the inter-nizzle.
Comments are certainly welcome! :)
