    There's not much overlap. Regardless of how you measure 'best' (elegance, deluxeness, impact, profitability, ROI, meaningfulness, memorability), it's almost never present in the thing that is the most popular. The best restaurant, Seinfeld episode, political candidate, brand of beer, ski slope, NASDAQ stock, you name it. Compare them to the most popular. Big is a choice. So is best.

    Exploited correctly, sound can elicit memory and good feelings. Done wrong--remember that noisy Sunchips bag?--it can send people fleeing.Just as sound is one of the most powerful tools we have to tell a story, the wrong sound is one of the most powerful ways to kill one. Simply put, sonic trash is any sound that diminishes your experience because it's wrong to you. As the multiple Grammy- and Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer puts it: "Get rid of the shitty sound.

    Just one more level on this game, she says. Once I get to level 68, I'll be done. Just one more tweak to the car, they beg. Once we bump up the mileage, we'll be done. Just one more lotion, she asks. Once I put that on, my skin will be perfect and I'll be done. Of course, the result isn't the point. The mileage or the ranking or slightly more alabaster or ebony isn't the point. The point is the longing. Desire can't be sated, because if it is, the longing disappears and then we've failed, because desire is the state we seek. We've expanded our desire for ever more human connection into a…

    The job is no longer to recite facts, to read the bio out loud, to explain something better found or watched online. No, the job is to personally and passionately make us care enough to look up the facts for ourselves.  When you introduce a concept, or a speaker, or an opportunity, skip the reading of facts. Instead, make a passionate pitch that drives inquiry. In the audience, in your employees, in your customers... The only reason people don't look it up is that they don't care, not that they're unable. So, your job is to get them to care enough. [You can even send them…

    There is famous and there is famous to the family. Cousin Aaron is famous to my family. Or, to be less literal, the family of people like us might understand that Satya the milliner or perhaps Sarma Melngailis or Peter Olotka are famous. And famous to the family is precisely the goal of just about all marketing now. You don't need to be Nike or Apple or GE. You need to be famous to the small circle of people you are hoping will admire and trust you. Your shoe store needs to be famous to the 300 shoe shoppers in your town. Your retail consulting practice needs to be famous to 100 people at ten…

    17 Oct 2014 | 2:28 am
    If you say that in a meeting, you've failed. You've abdicated responsibility and just multiplied the time wasted by the number of people in the room. When we go around the room, everyone in the room spends the entire time before their turn thinking about what to say, and working to say something fairly unmemorable. And of course, this endless litany of 'saying' leads to little in the way of listening or response or interaction or action of any kind. The worst example I ever saw of this was when Barry Diller did it in a meeting with 220 attendees. More than two hours later, everyone in the…

    This is a guest contribution from Mark Potter. Greggs is the UK’s largest bakery chain, famed for its sausage rolls and steak bakes. They have always enjoyed a strong social media presence, winning a Digital Impact Award in 2013 for a ‘Sandwich Maker’ Facebook app. As a relatively low-budget food chain, they are a popular target for online abuse. As a result, they have already developed a robust strategy for dealing with complaints and controversy: Things turned particularly sour in August, when the Google algorithm accidentally replaced the official Greggs logo with a highly offensive…

    iFixIt has conducted their teardown of the brand new Mac mini, finding that the new device is more difficult to open than previous models. They've also discovered that the RAM is soldered onto the machine, which was first discovered late last week. The team found that gaining entry into the new desktop is more difficult than previous models. Instead of a twistable bottom cover, the new Mac mini requires a plastic opening tool to pop off the cover. Underneath that is a new solid door that blocks easy access to the RAM and fan. The door uses what iFixIt calls "the smallest Torx Security screw"…

Cook noted that available data makes it unclear as to when supply will catch up with demand, and that the company was "not close" to having a balance between supply and demand at the end of Q4 2014. Supplies for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have remained tight since the launch of both devices last month, as new iPhone 6 orders still show a shipping estimate of 7-10…

Just like it says here at [chrisbrogan.com], “you can’t own your business, until you own your life,” I knew that I had to explain how one moves from that sense that you’re not quite making it to that deeply-felt knowledge that you’re on the path towards what you want to accomplish.

His intense level of dedication to his work brought him the success that he earned throughout his career. Lots of people argue that it’s difficult to reach those levels and still have a life or a family. Anyone who works hard is often cautioned that it will ruin your relationship, that…
  • What I’ve Come to Learn About Learning

    17 Sep 2014 | 3:15 pm
    I’ve come to learn that I’m somewhat different than other people when it comes to learning. I’m there for the candy bar, not the wrapper. And yet, I understand it, after the fact. Let me explain. People Want Their Learning to LOOK Very Formal In my experience, I find that the best lessons I’ve ever learned came during “between official moments” experiences, after hours, in the back rooms, quietly over coffee somewhere, or in other very informal places. When we talk openly versus with all the polish is where the best lessons come, OR SO I BELIEVE MYSELF.

  • Guest Posting Best Practices From Copyblogger’s Guest Post Gatekeeper

    Stefanie Flaxman
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Many years ago, when I began developing my personal guest posting strategy, Copyblogger sat atop my “Where I Want to Guest Post” list. Five years later, I achieved my goal. So, how did I spend the time between making my list and May 23, 2013 when my first blog post appeared on Copyblogger? Rigorously practicing my writing, of course. Although I had high hopes of guest posting for Copyblogger during the early stages of my online copy editing business, it was my rejection from Copyblogger that shaped my subsequent guest posting success. Ironically, it also led me to my current…

As of today, the page has 38,000 “fans,” but Copyblogger’s presence on Facebook has not been beneficial for the brand or its audience. Just over three months ago, Brian Clark reached out to me for some extra help on the page.

    Writing well-structured articles that inform, educate, and entertain is not as easy as it looks. There are billions of webpages out there that contain poorly written, unimaginative, boring content. But those aren’t the descriptions you want associated with the media you produce, right? As all content marketers who want to grow their digital media platforms know, audiences reward websites that offer special resources, whether they’re up-to-date blogs, in-depth ebooks, smart podcasts, or evergreen whitepapers.

  • Leeo Smart Alert Nightlight review: $99 is cheap if it saves your house from burning down

    21 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Okay, so maybe my headline is bit over the top. The Leeo Smart Alert Nightlight isn’t a robotic fire extinguisher (although Leeo CEO and co-founder Adam Gettings’ background includes designing robots for SWAT teams and other first responders). But the Leeo really can prevent your house from burning down, and that renders this $99 nightlight very inexpensive indeed. A smoke detector can save your life and property if a fire breaks out, and a carbon monoxide detector can save your life. But if you’re not home to hear those alarms go off, they’re not very useful. One alternative is to…

  • Using Cameras with Electronic Viewfinders for Close-Up Photography

    Andrew S. Gibson
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    I recently bought a mirrorless camera (the Fujifilm X-Pro 1) and since then I’ve been getting to know the camera, using it in a variety of situations to familiarize myself with the way it works. Today I’d like to offer a few observations, based on my experience so far, on using cameras with electronic viewfinders for close-up photography. 1. The light weight of the camera and lens is very nice. This is a camera I can carry around all day without it feeling like a burden. It’s nearly half the weight of my EOS 5D Mark II. 2. Manual focusing is very easy in the electronic viewfinder.

    Donut, American Apparel, NYC. Yes, someone thought this was a good idea. While it takes time to master the technical skills needed to excel at street photography, I think the most difficult aspect of the genre is trying to figure out what you are trying to capture. I get this question a lot, “What should I be looking for?” This is why street photography is a genre where experience is second to none. You can get comfortable capturing strangers candidly, you can learn to technically capture your images perfectly, but finding your voice is something that takes years of experience,…

This article is not about those times, but is an observation about how often I see them done the wrong way. As a photographer, you need to build the right foundation of skills before you can successfully veer away from them.

    Reducing noise in a digital photo is a hot topic, particularly for photographers who frequently shoot at high ISOs. Even if you’re not a typical low light shooter, the temptation may arise with some of the newer digital cameras that offer incredibly high ISO speeds which still produce pretty pleasing images, even with noise. There are many factors that can produce noise in your images, and there are many ways to reduce or sometimes even avoid noise all together. This article in particular will highlight one post-processing trick to reduce noise using a third party plugin called…

First off, a HUGE thanks to anyone that came out to Adobe Max last week in Los Angeles. The Max conference has a very creative/designer feel to it, and it’s a ton of fun. But it was great to see Lightroom making more of an impact. For example, my Lightroom for New Users class was packed.

    Apple may consider shifting even more of its iPhone production balance towards the iPhone 6 Plus due to higher than expected demand for the larger phone in China, reports Digitimes. The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus launched in China last Friday following a successful week of pre-orders, as the report notes that consumers have shown a strong preference for the larger device. As a result, Apple may be forced to shift more production capacity to the 5.5-inch model, said the sources, adding that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus supply ratio is likely to change to 55:45 from 70:30 or 65:35 set…
