    What are they for? Absolutely nothing. Well, that's not true. The fact that they aren't directly related to what you're trying to deliver is precisely why they exist. The 'nothingness' of their value is why they are valuable. An embellishment, a garnish, a filligree... it exists because it means you took a little extra time, you cared enough to add some beauty or rhythm to the thing you brought me.

    Doctors conduct postmortems to figure why people died. They do this to solve a crime, prevent the death of others, and satisfy curiosity. However, once somebody dies, it’s too late to help him. Entrepreneurs and their investors also often analyze why a product, service, or company died—especially if it’s someone else’s company. And, as in the case of dead people, a postmortem is too late to do much good for a defunct product, service, or company.

    At any conference, there are ten times more panelists than there are keynote speakers, so the odds are higher that you’re on a panel than giving a keynote speech. Therefore, rocking a panel is an important skill for evangelists, too. A panel looks easy. There are four or five other people on it, and it lasts only sixty minutes. How hard could it be? Herein lies the problem: because everyone thinks a panel is short and easy, no one prepares for it. In reality, a panel is harder than an individual speech because you cannot control a panel like your own keynote speech, and you get much less…

Today's images suggest that, on top of the Qualcomm chip's faster LTE speeds and increased energy efficiency, the iPhone 6s will include fewer chips that are collectively more efficient, updated NFC hardware for Apple Pay, and likely the same 16GB entry-level capacity seen on current iPhones.

Apple's new Music app focuses heavily on content discovery, with an entire "For You" section dedicated to recommendations. According to Apple, its music experts "handpick songs, artists, and albums based on what you listen to and like," and this content is what populates the "For You" section. Apple's explained that "For You" recommendations get better over time based on "whether you love a song or not," but the company hasn't explicitly…

    Just a day after the release of iOS 8.4, which includes Apple's brand new music service Apple Music, many users on both the MacRumors forums and Apple Support communities are finding that the update removes Home Sharing for music on iOS devices.

    My son, Harold, is huge into video games and video game culture. He knows more weird and deep-level memes and obscure details than you’ll ever know. Harold has convinced me to take him to the SCG Convention in Texas. To say he’s hyped and excited is to really underplay how he feels about it. As part of this, I’ve encouraged Harold to do as much of the planning and deciding as possible. Harold chose the Aloft hotel chain. Swell by me. He picked it because he loved the videos. I prepaid for the days of the conference. And then, I ran into a snag.Continue ReadingThe post…
  • The Biggest Competitive Advantage I Have

    I’m sprawled out on my bed writing to you. My son is reading a copy of Retro Gamer and my daughter is playing Splatoon (it’s a Wii game that your kid probably wants). Lately, I’ve been thinking about this blog, about you, about my business, about what I stand for. That kind of stuff. The Biggest Competitive Advantage I Have is Openness and Honesty But that sounds like I’m trying to be virtuous. I’m not. I just think it’s easier/better/faster to just tell you what I think and feel, instead of worrying. Continue ReadingThe post The Biggest Competitive…
  • How to Get Ahead if You’re Shy – or the Secret Magic of Puppets

    8 Jun 2015 | 11:03 am
    My son, Harold, found out quite by surprise that he really likes puppets. He pretty much had to have this Kermit the Frog puppet. What we did with it was quite interesting. And in the process, I found myself thinking about me, then you, and about us. About all of us. And about something I’m not sure I’ve yet shared in this specific way. The Magic of Puppets When you put a puppet on your hand, you empower someone else to speak for you. You can say things you might not say from your own lips. Because hey, it’s a puppet. Puppets are like a super power.Continue ReadingThe post…

In my circles, when people ask me advice about how to be a better professional speaker, I tell a somewhat backhanded and loving story about how I paid for a day of Dr. Morgan’s time, hellbent on having him make me a much better speaker. I loved everything he had to say. It was brilliant, full of really important details and ideas. And I couldn’t really make good use of any of it. Dr. Morgan mentions it in this post.

    I’m working on some interesting stuff as it relates to both bigger businesses as well as small businesses. I’m interested in how better use of data could open up a whole big slice of not-yet-tapped economic value for companies (again both bigger and smaller). It’s times like this where I feel bad for people who think I’m the “social media guy.” I’m thinking about velocity as it applies to marketing.

  • Think Fast! Using Heuristics To Increase Use Of Your Product

    Victor Yocco
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:34 am
    People have many tough decisions to make; whether they should use your application or website to accomplish a task shouldn’t be one of them. Your design team can take advantage of our knowledge of the human mind and human behavior by accounting for a number of heuristics, or mental shortcuts, that researchers have identified. You might be familiar with the term “heuristic” from the UX research method of heuristic evaluation. A heuristic evaluation involves experts evaluating the interface and interactions of a system based on accepted usability best practices. Forget about that for now.

  • Design Principles: Compositional Balance, Symmetry And Asymmetry

    Steven Bradley
    29 Jun 2015 | 2:00 am
    A balanced composition feels right. It feels stable and aesthetically pleasing. While some of its elements might be focal points and attract your eye, no one area of the composition draws your eye so much that you can’t see the other areas. Balancing a composition1 involves arranging both positive elements and negative space in such a way that no one area of the design overpowers other areas. Everything works together and fits together in a seamless whole. The individual parts contribute to their sum but don’t try to become the sum. An unbalanced composition can lead to tension. When a…

    Prototyping is one of the best things that can happen within a project, yet it is extremely underutilized. Prototyping makes a project better suited to users, elevates user experience, increases the quality of your final code, and keeps clients happy. The problem is that developers often see prototyping as a waste of time, since high-quality prototypes take considerable effort to make. I want to show you that by using WordPress, highly interactive prototypes with great visuals are not at all that difficult to make. 1 (Image credit: Jeff Sheldon via Unsplash2) (View large version3) First,…

We’re living in a world consumed by fear of the truth—but is there really such a thing as “the truth” anymore—especially in visual terms? It is fear of the unknown that causes people to judge and criticize—fear of an illusion created by our own experiences and teachings. One individual’s perspective may not be the same as another’s, because we process and interpret visual stimuli in a variety of ways. Thus, what is reality, if not a…

What about the second? Some of the more interesting photos (and artwork in general) moves your view around the image, and often brings you back for more.

Luckily, as a photographer you have more than a few…

    So my wife was wanting me to print out some of our family pictures to hang on the wall, and so when she had made her selection of images that she wanted, I had a few of them that were just small files for display on the web, and when I went looking for the large jpeg, I could only find the RAW image. So, I had to re-edit them using the latest version of Lightroom. The difference in the two images is pretty cool when you look at the detail in the clouds and the more precise way I could brighten the faces etc… And so my tip for today is to go back to some of your favorite images or even…

    This tip comes courtesy of one of our readers (thanks Randy F.) who pointed out in a comment here last Friday that the new Dehaze slider just added to Lightroom CC works pretty darn well for removing haze from Fireworks, and with July 4th coming up, I thought it was a perfect tip for today. I have noticed that the slider is much more effective (no pun intended) on images still in RAW format, versus those in JPEG (I did a comparison on the same file in RAW vs an exported JPEG and it’s a pretty wide difference). So, keep this up your sleeve for the Independence Day post-processing. Hope…
