Packaging And What Nots

Why Is It So Hard To Opt-Out Of History Repeating Itself?

Following on yesterday's entry about Facebook's Timeline and that old adage of history repeating itself, I feel like I am back in the end of the 20th century when it comes to assumptions and inconveniences laid before online and mobile users.  While much debate and consideration of best practices led to companies switching to Opt-In [...]

Google’s Motorola Mobility Deal Could Help Speed Up An Advertising Game-Changer

With all the buzz about Google acquiring Motorola Mobility, a lot has focused on the patents Google acquires and also on the set-top boxes.  What could be of key import is the set-top box.  Certainly, the patents have both short and long-term value, but their value is already known.  Depending on how Google moves forward [...]

Are We Giving Away The Opportunity to Truly Broaden Our Base?

Sort of following along the lines of yesterday's post - have recent trends and technological advances caused us to become less effective in marketing and the opportunities or choices available? It used to be that a commercial could run during a Broadcast Television Primetime Show and you knew the basic demos.  Not every commerical would be relevant or [...]

When Do Facebook’s Cavalier Policies Start Damaging Beyond Repair?

How long will Facebook continue to develop and institute new developments that cause irreparable harm for all others in the digital space?  I get it, at this point, we need Facebook as they have developed an unrivaled platform for social media.
