That's what happened during this week's nor’easter, according to Irdeto, a Netherlands-based company that tracks illegal downloading for media clients.

    As your plans get more detailed, it's also more and more likely that they won't work exactly as you described them. Certainly, it's worth visualizing the thing you're working to build. When it works, what's it going to be like? Even more important, though, is being able to describe what you're going to do when the plan doesn't work. Because it won't. Not the way you expect, certainly. Things will break, be late, miss the spec. People will let you down, surprise you or change their minds. Sales won't get made, promises will be broken, formulas will change. All part of the plan that includes…

    Who is happy? Are rock stars, billionaires or recently-funded entrepreneurs happier? What about teenagers with clear skin? Either what happens changes our mood... or our mood changes the way we narrate what happens. This goes beyond happiness economics and the understanding that a certain baseline of health and success is needed for many people to be happy. The question worth pondering is: are you seeking out the imperfect to justify your habit of being unhappy? Does something have to happen in the outside world for you to be happy inside? Or, to put it differently, Is there a narrative…

    Very few people are afraid of speaking. It's the public part that's the problem. What makes it public? After all, speaking to a waiter or someone you bump into on the street is hardly private. I think we define public speaking as any group large enough or important enough or fraught enough that we're afraid of it. And that makes the solution straightforward (but not easy). Instead of plunging into these situations under duress, once a year or once a decade, gently stretch your way there. Start with dogs. I'm not kidding. If you don't have one, go to the local animal shelter and take one for a…

    It's quite natural to be defensive in the face of criticism. After all, the critic is often someone with an agenda that's different from yours. But advice, solicited advice from a well-meaning and insightful expert? If you confuse that with criticism, you'll leave a lot of wisdom on the table. Here's a simple way to process advice: Try it on. Instead of explaining to yourself and to your advisor why an idea is wrong, impossible or merely difficult, consider acting out what it would mean. Act as if, talk it through, follow the trail. Turn the advice into a new business plan, or a presentation…

Brands now have Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and on and on to promote their website and the blogs themselves.

And as I haven’t been invited to speak at a conference this week or next (where I get a lot of thoughts and ideas), I decided to put on a conference in my living room. The content doesn’t quite matter, because it’s my conference. People ask me all the time which conferences are the ones to attend? My answer: your own.Continue ReadingThe post Which Conference Should You Attend? Your Own appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

    I was lamenting the fact that business has been slow over the last handful of weeks (end of the year and first of the year aren’t exactly the roaring seasons for keynote speakers and professional development experts), but a little change of perspective really turned me around. Because there’s a lesson in it that would be useful to an owner like you, I wanted to share it with you. Measure Your Wealth in Options The last few weeks have been slow, yes. But that means that I can accept the following truths to go along with it:Continue ReadingThe post Measure Your Wealth in Options…

  • Do Lower Prices Lead to More Sales?

    Sean D'Souza
    29 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    Let’s say you’re choosing between three photography courses covering similar topics. The prices are stacked like this: $200 $250 $2,000 What’s going through your mind right now? Curiosity floods your brain. Even if you’re not sure you can afford the $2,000 course, you want to know why it’s so expensive, compared to the other photography courses. If we were truly happy with lower prices, we would simply snap up the $200 workshop, right? We wouldn’t so much as take a glance at the rest. But that’s not how we’re built as human beings.

  • Data Is Clear: To Be Effective at Content Marketing, Have a Documented Strategy

    Jerod Morris
    28 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    Talk is cheap. So it should come as no surprise that when it comes to content marketing strategy, simply talking about it is not enough. That is the big takeaway from the 2015 benchmarks, budgets, and trends study by Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs, sponsored by our own Rainmaker Platform. According to the study, only 39 percent of B2B small business marketers have a documented content marketing strategy. The rest either have a strategy that they have only talked about (47 percent), have no strategy at all (12 percent), or are unsure (1 percent). Here’s why this matters…
  • How to Learn From Your Mistakes

    Jerod Morris
    27 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    Everybody makes mistakes. And everybody should make mistakes. They are unavoidable when we step outside of our comfort zones. Avoiding mistakes means avoiding growth. But we can’t repeat our mistakes. We need to learn from them. When we do, we turn negatives into positives and move forward. When we don’t, we simply run in place. In this episode of The Lede, Demian and I share personal stories of mistakes we’ve made — some big and some small — and how we learned from them, and we describe the thought process necessary to do so consistently. We discuss: Recovering…

    At the end of the day, I just find your persona incredibly grating. Funny that I can still remember that comment word-for-word. It’s from an unsubscribe note to my email list dating back at least seven years now. I heard lots of good things back then, too. I was helping people, sharing what I knew in a way that was useful to my (then tiny) audience. But I don’t remember any of the good comments verbatim. Even back then, though, the note made me laugh. (Ruefully.) Because I knew that it was a signpost. A signal that I was headed in the right direction. The Internet is full of…

  • It's no Twitter, but Plague is an infectious social network

    29 Jan 2015 | 3:51 pm
    We’re used to social networks where we follow people and view what they post: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others depend on each user connecting with others in order for content to be shared. Plague doesn’t work like that at all, but it can be addictive despite its limitations. Plague is a new paradigm for sharing information. Through its free iOS and Android apps, users post cards, containing text (140 characters), photos, and/or videos, and “infect” other users who are nearby. These users, in turn, decide whether they want to spread the cards to other users near them: swiping up…
  • Apple now neck-and-neck with Samsung after monster quarter

    29 Jan 2015 | 3:12 pm
    The huge popularity of the new iPhone 6 pushed Apple and Samsung closer than ever at the top of the market for smartphones, according to two companies that closely track shipments of the devices. Earlier this week, Apple said it sold 74.5 million iPhones in the last three months of 2014 and on Thursday Samsung said it sold 95 million phones. That means Samsung remains the world’s biggest mobile phone maker, but its numbers include both smartphones and feature phones. Samsung doesn’t break out its smartphone shipments, but Strategy Analytics said Friday that it estimates Samsung shipped…
  • 1Password's update highlights the difference between two-step and two-factor verification

    29 Jan 2015 | 2:09 pm
    An update to 1Password brings time-based one-time passwords (TOTP for short) to its iOS app. A one-time password is typically used as a second element in two-factor authentication (2FA), a subject I’ve written about many times in this column. But, as noted in a sensible and honest post by AgileBits, 1Password’s developer, a second factor isn’t always a second factor. A TOTP requires a seed code that, when transformed through an algorithm that includes the precise current time, produces a number that’s converted into a short code, typically six digits long. In order to use a TOTP at a…

    29 Jan 2015 | 12:51 pm
    Few design projects are as nerve-wracking—and important—as designing your own business card. Just like the clothes you wear, your business card tells the recipient if you’re professional, artistic, or a big ol’ ball of cheese. Aside from the aesthetic message, you’ve also got to pack a ton of info into a tiny-teeny space and keep it readable. To put your best business card forward, try following these essential design tips.Pick a printer The first step in designing your own business cards is to pick a printer.

  • Five Characteristics Of An Innovation

    Victor Yocco
    29 Jan 2015 | 6:16 am
    The “diffusion of innovations” theory of communications expert and rural sociologist Everett Rogers attempts to identify and explain the factors that lead to people and groups adopting innovations (new ideas and technologies). Design teams that account for both usability and how people adopt innovation stand a much greater chance of having users accept and use their products. The diffusion of innovations is a complex process; design teams can use their knowledge of the theory to create a road map for how they will address critical factors in the design and marketing of their product.

    Last week, Microsoft made its biggest announcement for the web since it first introduced Internet Explorer in 1995: a new browser, codenamed “Project Spartan31.” So, what does this mean for us as designers and developers? What rendering engine will Spartan be using, and how will it affect our work?

    We’ve all seen hundreds of gorgeous photos of sunrises over beaches and beautiful landscapes. Of course they have the capacity to wow and inspire, but I would argue that it’s far more interesting to photographs cities at dawn. You have so much more to work with – buildings, graffiti, debris, rivers, glass, the odd person, roads, and greenery in the midst of all of this urban-ness. The possibilities to create unique photos are endless. So, if you combine all this intense city landscape with the wonderful and quickly-changing light of dawn, you have an amazing combination.

It’s about bringing out shadow detail in a big way using a workaround that does take a few steps, but it’s super easy (after it all goes faster than you’d think). Here’s what we’re doing:   STEP ONE: Here’s the original image. The area in the foreground is pretty dark, so to open up that area, we reach for the Shadows slider. STEP TWO: Here I cranked the Shadows slider all the way to +100, and it helped a little bit, but…
