    The '90s was an interesting time in computing technology. The computer was well established enough to be easily recognized, but not yet established enough to have a concrete form. As a result, there's a huge variety of speculation in pop-culture about what the internet would actually turn into. Here's a supercut of such clips.

    In upper Alaska, after the day's work was completed and supper had been eaten, it was time for those around the fire to lean close and listen. It was time to share a story. Storytelling is the timeless art of the of the Iñupiat people, who have lived in northern Alaska for thousands of years. Like many other Native people, the stories were rich histories passed through generations. But as Native Alaskans move into urban areas and away from their traditional upbringing, where can those legends still live?

    We expect authors, painters and singers to identify themselves, to sign the work they do. And surgeons and lawyers as well. What about managers, committee members, engineers and everyone else who makes something? Who made this policy? Who designed this menu? Who approved this project? If you're not proud of it, don't ship it. If you are, sign your work and own the results. We'll know who to thank. If you work for a place where work goes unsigned (internally, in particular) it's worth asking why.

One of the most popular category blendings recently has been the acoustic-techno jump. Here's an example: two acoustic guitars playing house, trance, and techno classics.

YouTuber MrSolidSnake745 played one of the most iconic songs from Super Nintendo's Super Mario World — "Athlete's Rag" — on eight floppy drives, using software to get the drives' motors to output a certain frequency in a series of mechanical hums. This isn't the first time the YouTuber has tried this trick; his previous tunes include Star Wars' "Imperial March," the Ghostbusters theme song and Game of Thrones' opening song.

    One of the milestones every entrepreneur passes is when she stops thinking of people she hires as expensive ("I could do that job for free") and starts thinking of them as cheap ("This frees me up to do something more profitable.") When you get rid of every job you do that could be done by someone else, something needs to fill your time. And what you discover is that you're imagining growth, building partnerships, rethinking the enterprise (working on your business instead of in it, as the emyth guys would say). Right now, you don't even see those jobs, because you're busy doing things that…

    Seth Godin

    Marketing works best when the effort you put into it is a little more than you think you need and a lot more than the market expects from your project. And projects work best when the amount you need to get done is a little less than the resources you have available. Marketing rewards a taut system, a show of confidence, the ability to be where you need to be with a true story that works. Projects reward slack, the ability to keep your schedule and your quality, to watch the critical path and to make smart decisions. The common errors, then: Pick too big an arena for your marketing, and seem…
  • The tragedy of the last 10%

    Seth Godin
    21 Nov 2014 | 2:29 am
    In a competitive market, if you do the work to lower your price by 10%, your market share grows. If you dig in deep, analyze, reengineer and make thoughtful changes, you can lower your price another 10%. This leads to an even bigger jump in market share. The third time (or maybe the fourth, or even before then), you only achieve a 10% savings by cutting safety, or quality, or reliability. You cut corners, certainly. The last 10% costs your workers the chance to make a decent living, it costs your suppliers the opportunity to treat their people with dignity, and it costs you your reputation.

There were Harley-type renegades before there was Harley Davidson. There were digital nomads before there was Apple. There were pop music fans before there were the Beatles and Rastafarians before Marley. Without a doubt, a new technology creates new experiences. But the early adopters who gravitate to it were early adopters before we got there. Our job is to find the disconnected and connect them, to find people eager to pursue a goal and give them the…

    On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I found myself observing many people who were dressed for their nights on the town as if they were starring in a movie or TV show about Vegas. They wore shiny faux-gold sunglasses at night (pretty sure they don’t do this at home). They left three or so buttons undone on their shirts (can you imagine that kind of look at your office?). They wore little black dresses and super high heels and they carried purses that glittered like warfare. As judgmental as I like to be, I am enamored with the idea because in all cases, people were allowing themselves to play, to…
  • Brown Fur Sweaters and Why I Wasted Over a Decade Mourning My Childhood’s Holiday Rituals

    Chris Brogan
    21 Nov 2014 | 6:48 am
    It’s the strangest thing: I’m sitting on a plane bound for Las Vegas where I’ll attend the premiere of a documentary that I participated in, and I am doing what I do mostly: observing people and their decisions. An older woman in the seat in front of me is on her iPad and using the in-flight wifi, a marvel of technology that allows us nearly unfettered access to the universe while at 30,000 feet! And here’s what she’s doing. She’s typed “brown fur sweater” into the search bar at NeimanMarcus.com . Continue ReadingThe post Brown Fur Sweaters and Why I Wasted Over a Decade…
  • Look Beyond the Sniper Rifle

    Chris Brogan
    11 Nov 2014 | 10:29 am
    I had the pleasure of interviewing Brandon Webb, CEO of Force 12 Media about many things: his writing, his web empire, his books, his view on ISIS, and a lot more. His background, such as it is, includes having run the US Navy SEAL sniper training program and training several of the world’s deadliest snipers. What ended up being interesting to me is that Brandon is often brought onto shows to comment as a US Navy SEAL, but they tend to underutilize his perspective, or ask general questions like, “Boy, it sure is hard to get through your training as a SEAL, isn’t it?”…

    I am fortunate to know people like Carey Lohrenz, the first female F14 combat pilot, who gave me the shirt in the picture above. She wrote a great book called Fearless Leadership, by the way, a Wall Street Journal bestseller about how to be a better personal leader and then how to lead others. She’s a top shelf kind of person to know, and I intend to connect with her as often as possible over the coming years. I added her to my Whatsapp account for that reason, too. I want to be able to connect with her when I need something, or when I have something to offer her. Continue ReadingThe…

    Here at Copyblogger Media, it’s safe to say that we’ve been in your shoes. As freelancers, consultants, content publishers, and small business owners … It’s in our DNA.

  • How We Built Our Careers Online (And What You Can Learn From It)

    Jerod Morris
    18 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    The two biggest concerns for the average blogger are obscurity and sustainability. In other words … for the vast majority of us who set sail creating content online, we want to first develop an audience; and then, once we have an audience, we want to find a way to earn a living from our content. The first concern can feel daunting enough, because building an audience isn’t easy. The second concern can feel damn near impossible — because despite countless examples of people who have done it, sometimes we struggle to see ourselves succeeding in the same way. Which is silly. So…

    Demian Farnworth
    17 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    The average blogger only has two concerns. The first is obscurity. She is a total stranger in a vast world loaded with people — unknown, inconspicuous, and insignificant. Odd, considering there are so many people online. But it’s a simple law: We all start at the bottom. One recent study discovered that the average British blogger had only 285 subscribers, received 18 comments a day, and earned about $120 a month. That’s the reward for someone who’d been blogging for two years and eight months. Yes, those surveyed also worked full-time jobs. In an informal poll,…

    Reader Daniel Conlan is overwhelmed with calendars and would like to do something about it. He writes: Last year, some people at my work set up a lot of Google calendars for our workgroup. We’ve since had a reorganization and a lot of these calendars are now unnecessary. How can I get them off my Mac and iOS devices? You can easily hide them or, if you like, get rid of them altogether. We’ll start by hiding them. One way to hide unwanted events is to turn off their calendar delegates.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

  • Why You Should Include Your Developer In The Design Process

    Paul Boag
    21 Nov 2014 | 5:06 am
    Should designers be able to code? This topic never seems to die, with its endless blog posts, Twitter discussions and conference talks. But the developer’s involvement in the design process seems to be addressed very little. This is a shame, because developers have a huge amount to add to discussions about design. The unfortunate truth is that many designers have a somewhat elitist attitude towards design. They believe that only they can come up with good design ideas. That is simply not true. Everybody has the ability to make good design suggestions, including developers. Admittedly, a…

    In the wonderful world of millions of mobile apps, many users suffer from ADD (app deluge disorder), and no aphorism looms larger for developers than “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” Once a large group of people are downloading your app, you’ve already won half the battle and have accomplished your primary goal.

  • The State Of Animation 2014

    Rachel Nabors
    18 Nov 2014 | 5:59 am
    The post-Flash era is hardly free of animation. CSS animation is quickly becoming a cornerstone of user-friendly interfaces on mobile and desktop, and JavaScript libraries already exist to handle complex interactive animations. In the wake of so much “CSS versus JavaScript animation” infighting, a new API specifically for web animation is coming out that might just unite both camps. It’s an exciting time for web animation, and also a time of grave miscommunication and misinformation. In 2014, I had the chance to travel the world to talk about using animation in user interfaces and…

    A few weeks ago, I posted a link to a very short video tutorial I did over on the new KelbyOne Blog on how to use a camera on a monopod, with a fisheye lens, and trigger it with a wireless remote (here’s the link) for a really unique overhead look (it’s a lot easier than you’d think).This week, a photographer named Konstantin Articus in Germany did something I so love — he took that monopod/fisheye lens idea that I showed for use in sports, and he took that idea and applied it to something completely different, and he got just wonderful results (see below).Thanks so…

    With my new camera I can set Film Simulation to black and white and the camera gives me a black and white view in the electronic viewfinder. I can also select the square format and see a square image. This is a great aid to composition. Finding and using helpful features like this is part of getting to know your new camera. I recently purchased a new camera and the process of learning to use it has been a good reminder of just how long the process can take.

Granted, different situations or travel circumstances may require different type of bags. It’s not the same to go out for a walk in your neighborhood as it is to go on an overseas trip. As I mentioned in one of my prior posts, I am a big believer in going light. During the years I have purchased, used, tested, abused and torn apart all kinds of bags. But only up until now, as I believe I have found my perfect…

    Jim Hamel
    22 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    Shutter speed is one of those things that is initially a problem to be solved, but once you do that it becomes a tool that allows you to take better and more creative photos. First you should understand how shutter speed works and how to change it. You will need to make sure it is fast enough that your pictures turn out crisp. But once you’ve mastered those things, you can start using shutter speed to your advantage. You can slow it down to create a sense of movement, or speed it up to stop the action.
