    Fast growth comes from overwhelming the smallest possible audience with a product or service that so delights that they insist that their friends and colleagues use it. And hypergrowth is a version of the same thing, except those friends and colleagues quickly become even bigger fans, and tell even more people. Often, we get sidetracked when we forget about "smallest possible." If you make the audience you're initially serving too big, you will dilute the very thing you set out to make, avoid critical mass, and compromise the magic of what you're building. You'll make average stuff for…

  • Warm Pacific waters wash up sea lions, raising concerns on climate change

    Climate Central
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:45 pm
    Move over polar bears. Are starving sea lion pups the new face of climate change? This year's slew of hungry pups washing ashore in California, which has generated a slew of media coverage replete with heart-tugging images, has roots in natural temperature fluctuations in the ocean. But in the coming decades, human-induced warming could make these types of conditions more common. And sea lion pups are just the tip of a larger shift in the Pacific and the rest of the world's oceans if human emissions continue to warm the planet.

The future of his magnetic headphone adapter, Magzet, hinges on the answer.Over the past decade, untold numbers of people have taken a look at the MagSafe cable charging their MacBook and thought to themselves, "Wouldn't it be fantastic if there were a MagSafe for headphone cables?" It's a great idea that needs little justification, but time after time, companies that tried to make that idea a reality found themselves walking into a legal minefield of patents, the biggest of which was held by Apple itself.Read Full Story

  • Active listening

    Seth Godin
    26 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    The kind of listening we're trained to do in school and at work is passive listening. Sit still. Get through it. Figure out what's going to be on the test and ignore the rest. Your eyes can glaze over, but don't let it show. Try not to nod off. People are talking, and they'd like the illusion of listening to accompany that. Don't interrupt.  Passive listening is letting the other person talk. Active listening, on the other hand, requires that you interrupt when you need a clarification, and it requires that you ask a truly difficult question when the speaker is finished. If it's worth…
  • What is customer service for?

    Seth Godin
    25 Mar 2015 | 2:04 am
    Customer service is difficult, expensive and unpredictable. But it's a mistake to assume that any particular example is automatically either good or bad. A company might spend almost nothing on customer service but still succeed in reaching its goals. Customer service succeeds when it accomplishes what the organization sets out to accomplish. Google doesn't have a phone number, doesn't want to engage with most users. McDonald's doesn't give you a linen napkin. Fedex used to answer the phone on one ring, now it takes 81 seconds for them to answer a call. None of these things are necessarily…
  • Of course it's difficult...

    Seth Godin

    Students choose to attend expensive colleges but don't major in engineering because the courses are killer. Doing more than the customary amount of customer service is expensive, time-consuming and hard to sustain. Raising money for short-term urgent projects is easier than finding support for the long, difficult work of changing the culture and the infrastructure. Finding a new path up the mountain is far more difficult than hiring a sherpa and following the tried and true path. Of course it is. That's precisely why it's scarce and valuable.  The word economy comes from the Greek…

    Over the past couple of weeks, rumors have leaked pointing towards an Apple-branded streaming television service that could include 25 channels for $30 to $40 per month with partners like CBS, ABC, and Fox. NBC and parent company Comcast are not part of the negotiations, and according to a new report from Re/code, that's because Apple has not approached Comcast about a partnership. Earlier rumors about the streaming television service suggested NBC's absence from the upcoming package was due to a falling out between Apple and Comcast, but on Thursday, Comcast said that wasn't true in…

Sure, us nerds might point to Feedly or Flipboard, but that’s not “most people.” That’s the enlightened. Some of us get our favorite sites to our inbox. But that’s more rare than not. What seems most true, however, is that hardly anyone stops by someone’s actual blog any more (or say “site” in case you bristle at the word “blog.”) If people aren’t visiting blogs directly any…
  • Are You Going to Social Media Marketing World? SMMW15

    Chris Brogan

    I’m going to Social Media Marketing World in San Diego next Tuesday through Thursday. I’m doing two OFFICIAL things that I’ll stop explaining because I keep getting it wrong. Beyond that, most of my time is my own (I’ve got two other formal obligations and a few friend obligations). I thought I’d write out what my hopes are for the event, in case you and I have some shared interests we should cover. First and Foremost I’m definitely there to meet and connect.

  • How a $200 Chromebook Earned my Company $28,000 in Ten Days

    Chris Brogan
    21 Mar 2015 | 8:08 am
    This is the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111-C670. It’s about the size of a Macbook Air, kinda. It runs the Google Chrome OS, which means it’s pretty much like a browser-only deal. All the apps you use are web-based. And this device helped me make $28,000 in ten days. Could a Chromebook Make You More Money? I suspect you already know the real answer to how this worked. This Chromebook isn’t the most powerful computer in the universe. If you have a lot of tabs open, it doesn’t work well. So, I don’t have many tabs open.

  • What Writing A Great Sales Letter Taught Me About Everything

    Chris Brogan
    19 Mar 2015 | 8:26 am
    I can count on one hand the number of times that something I’ve tried to sell has been well-received by the people I serve. You know how some kids are a late bloomer? That’s me with most of the things I sell. People buy them years later sometimes. But this time, I really struck gold. How We Write Our Sales Letter Sequence I learned a lot while putting together the now-defunct webinar version of Online Course Maker. (Let me reiterate: the WEBINAR VERSION IS GONE). First, I learned that there’s such a thing as too much information for a format. I tried to cram way too much…

    Rainmaker.FM
    27 Mar 2015 | 1:00 pm
    In previous episodes of New Rainmaker with Brian Clark, Brian and Robert Bruce have discussed the “why” of starting a podcast (or podcast network). In this one, they talk about the “how.” As many of you know by now, it has been almost two weeks since Copyblogger Media launched an on-demand audio network called Rainmaker.FM. Thanks to you, things have gone pretty well in that time. What you don’t yet know is the story behind that launch — the planning, production, and marketing of the 10 distinct shows that are currently airing. Not to mention the next crop…

  • Can You Be a Writer and an Editor-in-Chief?

    Rainmaker.FM
    27 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    An editor’s job could be viewed as a writer’s safety net — an opportunity to catch and correct mistakes before the general public views a writer’s work. But what if an editor regards a section of text as a mistake and the writer regards that same section as an integral part of his work of art? Right before Rainmaker.FM launched, Editor-in-Chief host Stefanie Flaxman got the chance to talk to her co-worker, Copyblogger Media’s Chief Content Writer Demian Farnworth, about the fragile nature of writer-editor relationships.

    Someone in this room is going to change everything because they cared. Seth Godin and his round-framed glasses stared back at a room filled with ambitious entrepreneurs-in-training, and I looked around wondering who would be the next person to “change everything.” That’s how my experience at Copyblogger’s Authority event in 2014 began — looking into the audience like I wasn’t part of the audience. Still not seeing myself as someone who could take a chance and grow my own business. But that’s not how I ended my experience. By the conclusion of the…

    The Apple Watch will have its own sales space inside three major department stores in Europe and Asia, a move to get the product in front of potential buyers who may not be frequent visitors to the company’s physical and online stores. The locations, at Selfridges in London, Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo and Galeries Lafayette in Paris, will be staffed by Apple employees. The department stores Apple selected have reputations for selling high-end fashions.

  • YouTube's experimental 4K, 60 frames per second video will crush your computer

    27 Mar 2015 | 7:25 am
    A little over six months ago YouTube did gamers a solid by supporting HD video uploads at 60 frames per second. If you thought that looked amazing, well, you ain't seen nothing yet. Google's popular video site is now quietly playing around with 4K videos at 60fps. This is only a trial and YouTube's 4K/60fps experiment is limited to just six clips. The 4K/60fps videos have two different resolutions: 1440p (2560-by-1440) and 2160p (3840-by-2160), the latter being the 4K Ultra HD resolution that TV manufacturers have adopted.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    It’s just like that for your product, too: people rely on our products to work. Bugs erode trust, which in turn loses customers. So when we began updating Foundation, a responsive CSS framework, we wanted to ensure everything worked. Thoroughly. We know that many people rely on our software for their work, and maintaining that trust is paramount. In this article you’ll learn our methodology for testing responsively, not just on a case by case, page-from-PSD comp.

    Back in 2013, Google officially announced1 that it would begin to penalize websites that provide a faulty user experience on mobile devices. Specific examples included redirecting inner URLs to a home page when viewed in a mobile version of a website, as well as showing 404 errors to people attempting to access pages on mobile. Toward the end of 2014, a Google spokesperson hinted that the mobile user experience would become a ranking factor2.

    You’ve put a lot of thought, time and effort into creating great content, and you want users to have a great experience with your content. While you might have created the best content in the world, you don’t get to choose how users access it. That’s why it’s important to make sure your content works beautifully on every platform and device, desktop, mobile or something else entirely. Before you panic, I’m not advocating that you create individual content strategies for each device or network that your content is published to. That would be crazy, and it wouldn’t necessarily work…

    Responding to user input is arguably the core of what we do as interface developers. In order to build responsive web products, understanding how touch, mouse, pointer and keyboard actions and the browser work together is key. You have likely experienced the 300-millisecond delay1 in mobile browsers or wrestled with touchmove2 versus scrolling3. In this article we will introduce the event cascade and use this knowledge to implement a demo of a tap event that supports the many input methods while not breaking in proxy browsers such as Opera Mini.

    If you’re over a “certain” age, you remember creating slideshows for friends or family members to see. The viewing process required a projector and a screen, plus a darkened room to enable people to see the projected slides properly. Thankfully, things have moved on since then and it’s now much easier to show your photos to an audience. The advent of laptop computers, social media, blogs and photo sharing websites has rendered the old style of slideshow redundant. However, there’s still a place for the new style of slideshow – one viewed on a computer monitor,…
  • Finding the Best Quality of Light During the Day

    Barry J Brady
    26 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Light is the main ingredient in any photograph. Without light, you cannot make an image. Photography is all about drawing or painting with light. One book I read on the subject said that light IS the subject in photography, in many ways, this is true. Light is a difficult phenomenon to quantify. Most of the time, we don’t really think about light in our day to day lives. Shoot for the light… As a photographer however, light is your currency. Without it, you cannot create an image. If you were in a lightproof room, with no light entering the room at all, it would be nearly…

    The golden hour. Even if you haven’t been involved in photography for very long, you undoubtedly have heard the term thrown around. As photographers we are in the business of capturing light, and there is no better light to have cast on our subjects, than sun light that is low on the horizon. The golden hour is defined as periods of time; specifically, the hour after sunrise, and the hour before sunset. The length and time of these occurrences depends on your location on our planet, and time of the year. Regardless of the type of photography you do, natural light generally falls into…

    Original Image One of the great things about the adjustment tools is that you can add color to the affect. Heck it could be the only setting you applied to that tool. I rely heavily on Photoshop’s color picker/eyedropper to help me choose colors since I have been known to have some color issues. But if you use a track pad or tablet device such as a Wacom Intous in Lightroom and you click on the color swatch to choose a color… as soon as you move your mouse out of the color palette, and try to sample a color in the image… the cursor changes to a regular one and you…

  • Printing a Multi-Photo Layout? Consider “Draft Mode”

      When I’m printing a multi-photo layout (like the one you see here) I turn on “Draft Mode Printing” (shown circled here in red) which sends a low-res preview version of each image to the printer, instead of making you wait for each high-resolution image to render, so the print comes out MUCH faster, but the quality is still great because the size of each image is so small. Give this “Draft Mode Printing” a try next time you’re doing a multi-photo layout and you’ll be amazed at how great those images look even though they’re just the low…

    After talking with Tim Cook onstage at the March 9 "Spring Forward" media event, model Christy Turlington Burns has kept a weekly blog on Apple's official website with updates on her preparations for the London Marathon next month. In this week's post, Burns mentions in passing that the Watch will not only learn a user's stride after a few exercises when paired with an iPhone, after a while the Watch will be able to act independently in tracking fitness-related stats without needing to be tethered to an iPhone at all (via MacObserver). Burns shows off the ease of exchanging Apple Watch bands…

    After acquiring live-streaming video service Periscope back in January, Twitter today officially launched the Periscope app, which aims to compete with newly popular apps like Meerkat in allowing users to instantly live-stream right from an iPhone (via The Verge). In development for over a year, once a user syncs their Twitter account with Periscope, they can view a list of curated live feeds on the app's homepage and even replay streams that have since ended. Streams can be replayed up to 24 hours after ending, and broadcasters can opt-out of allowing users to view their stream after it's…

    After introducing all new emoji with skin tone modifiers in iOS 8.3 beta 2, Apple continues to make minor tweaks to the emoji library in subsequent beta releases. iOS 8.3 beta 4 released through Apple's public beta testing program on Tuesday now separates default emoji from modified ones when holding them down on the keyboard, and emojis with yellow skin tone now have a matching blond or gold hair color. The emoji keyboard also shows the "Recently Added" view as default again, making it easier to select from the emojis that you use most often for messaging. iOS 8.3 beta 4 also gains iMessage…
