Wow – There are Quite a Few Unicorns – VC, Angel Investing, Startups – Do these valuations make economic sense? :)

Posted by:

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, ...

Another Perspective on Computing: Computation, Communication, Coordination, Recollection, Automation, Evaluation, Design

Posted by:

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 ...

Minimum Excellent Delivery: Why it’s Better than Minimum Viable Product or ROI

Posted by:

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 ...

12 Diagrams that Defne Data Science

Posted by:

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.

Presentations vs Acting and Theater for Inbound Marketing, Content Marketing, and Marketing Operations

Posted by:

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. ...

GIF Artwork: I’m In Love with Blingy Lemur in a Suit

Posted by:

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.
IMHO.

Comments are certainly welcome! :)
