    Growing up digital can make it tough for some young professionals to draw the line when it comes to what they share on social media networks. When your job or career is on the line, though, it's best to learn exactly where that line is before you learn it the hard way.

    In Sunday's episode of Mad Men, titled “Lost Horizon,” women’s issues — including sexism in the workplace — were front and center as Joan and Peggy made the move from SC&P to McCann. Peggy, one of SC&P’s most prodigious talents, is assumed to be a secretary during the transition — and because of that, McCann doesn’t have an office ready for her, forcing Peggy to conduct whatever business she can from the gutted SC&P offices haunted by ghosts of business past (and Roger playing an organ because, well, why not?).

  • The angry teenager (your customer?, your boss?)

    Seth Godin
    2 May 2015 | 1:59 am
    You’ve probably met one. You might have a boss who is one, or customers who act that way. Someone doesn’t have to be in high school to act like a teenager. (Teenagers are supposed to act like that, it's their job. When adults act like this, though, it can get really ugly.) The angry teenager believes that rage is always justified. He rejects the rational approach, replacing it with hot flashes of belief instead. Facts matter little when they can so easily be replaced by emotion. The angry teenager doesn’t want to talk through an issue, he just wants to yell about it. He doesn’t care…

    When Napster first hit the scene, people listened to as many different songs as they could. It was a feast of music discovery, fueled by access and curiosity. Now, the typical Spotify user listens to music inside a smaller comfort zone. When blogs were fresh and new, we subscribed to them by the hundreds, exploring, learning and seeking more. Over time, many people stopped following the outbound links. When Twitter was new, just about anything seemed worthy of a retweet. Not so much for many people today.

  • The naked corn paradox

    Seth Godin
    30 Apr 2015 | 1:29 am
    Sometimes, the thing that's done to market something makes it worse. And so, the corn at the local supermarket is already husked, because it looks better, sells better but tastes worse. And stereo speakers are designed with extra bass, so they'll demo better, sell better but sound worse. The market isn't always 'right', if right means that it knows how to get what it wants in the long run. Too often, we are confused, or misled, or part of a herd headed in the wrong direction. It's almost impossible to bring the mass market to its senses, to insist that you know better. What you can do,…

I saw a plastic scorpion on the bowl of nuts, but I didn't see it, I just moved it aside and went ahead preparing dinner. A few minutes later, I saw a second plastic scorpion on the counter, but again, I didn't actually see it, didn't pause or consider it, I just moved on. It took until the third plastic scorpion before I said, "huh." This is one reason we feel the need to yell 'surprise' at a surprise party. Because we all have blinders on.

    Many bloggers write drafts and then ‘edit’ their writing – but ‘revising’ is a little different and is definitely a good exercise.

The industrial rendering, dated December 2014, points to a 12.9-inch screen iPad Pro with dimensions measuring exactly 305.70mm x 222.60mm x 7.20mm, or 12 inches x 8.7 inches x 0.28 inches.

Social Networks for Business I should note that most of my opinions have changed dramatically (180 degrees level) in the last handful of months. I’m basing this on business. Not on whether I like or don’t like something, unless I state it as such.Continue ReadingThe…

    I’ve been teaching online courses for the last three or four years. When I started out, it was because Julien Smith told me that I ought to teach people how to create their own blog topics. That evolved into Blog Topics: The Master Class, and since then, I’ve launched a dozen or so more. Continue ReadingThe post How Online Courses Changed My Business appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.
  • My New Blendtec Designer 725

    Chris Brogan
    28 Apr 2015 | 2:20 pm
    The folks at Blendtec sent me a Designer 725 super duper high tech smart blender. As a fitness and health guy, it’s a pretty cool thing to own. My parents own a competing brand of blender, and I’ve owned a much less expensive blender that I used to use to make smoothies until it died after about a year. So it was neat to get the chance to try it out. Blendtec Designer 725 For those of you who ask such things, I was not paid to write a review. They didn’t even ask me to write a review (which was weird, because they sent me a pretty expensive blender to mess around with). Yes,…

I would’ve said yes anyway, but they added to the story that Henry Rollins was going to be in this same ebook. Having read most of Henry’s books, to actually be on some other page in the same book as him was reason enough. The fact that the information’s really useful? Well, that’s another thing.

    Pamela Wilson
    1 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    It’s a good thing your mom taught you everything you need to know to become a well-respected, successful blogger, isn’t it? What’s that? Your mom never taught you anything about blogs? Because blogs didn’t exist when you were growing up? I beg to differ. I’m going to bet that she really did teach you everything you need to know. She just may have forgotten to say “when blogging.” Let’s take a look. Choose your friends wisely (when blogging) Did your mom ever tell you she didn’t like your friends?

    Bad news for Apple (a-gain). Some analyst adjusted his own numbers based on, well, let's say voodoo. It's not literally voodoo, but it might as well be. Business Insider reports "There is 'lackluster interest' in the Apple Watch, says UBS." (Tip o' the antlers to @JonyIveParody.) If you were wondering on what analysts base their far-fetched numbers of how many Watches Apple might sell, it's search activity.

The company has updated its Apple Watch support documents to note potential problems for some tattooed users, after complaints started popping up around the web. “Permanent or temporary changes to your skin, such as some tattoos, can also impact heart rate sensor performance,” the document now reads. “The ink, pattern, and saturation of some tattoos can block light from the sensor, making it difficult to get reliable readings.”To read this article in full or to leave…

    When someone lands on a page of your site what do you want that person to do? Where do you want them to look? What information do you want your visitors to notice and in what order? Ideally, you want people to see your most important information first and your next most important information second. You want potential customers to see the copy that will convince them to buy before they see the “Buy Now” button. You want people to be presented with the right information at the right time, and one way to do that is to control the flow of your composition1. Compositional flow…
  • Creating A Complete Web App In Foundation For Apps

    Stephen Saucier
    28 Apr 2015 | 2:00 am
    Foundation for Apps is a new single-page app1 framework from Zurb that is closely related to Foundation 5 (also known as Foundation for Sites, a widely used front-end framework). It’s built around AngularJS and a flexbox grid framework. It’s intended to make creating a web app very quick and simple, enabling us to quickly start writing the code that’s unique to our application, rather than boilerplate. Because Foundation for Apps was only released at the end of 2014, it hasn’t yet seen widespread usage, so there are few good sources of information on using the framework. This…

Recently, Brad graciously asked if I would be comfortable sharing a burglary/theft experience we went through in early February of this year.

Now that I’ve had it for a few days here’s my initial thoughts after wearing (and playing) with it for the weekend: 1. You do need to read the instructions – it’s not an iPad where everything’s so obvious. 2. It’s more thoughtfully designed than I thought. Some seriously clever design went into making a watch computer easy to use. 3. There are more apps than I…

  • 5 Reasons a Pro Photographer Sometimes Regrets Going Pro

    Mike Randolph
    3 May 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Following your dream is not always easy. Actually, it’s never easy. To be frank, I think the only way you can achieve a dream goal is to leave yourself no other choice. You can’t say, for instance, “I’ll try this for a while and see how it goes.” because you’ll always find a reason (often a pretty good one) to give up and do something else. You have to be fully committed. That makes it easier decision-wise, because you literally leave yourself no other choice but to keep going forward. But the process itself is still very hard. So, that’s what I did and now I take pictures for a…

Here are three shortcuts that I think will speed up that process for you. O and G : The G key will always bring you to Grid view in Lightroom – so we already know that one. The O key will bring you into People view. If you have your people scanning turned off in Activity center, this is the only time that the scanning will take place. Shift O: Once you have a stack of images collected in either the named or unnamed section, you’ll need to name them. You can…
