Size Does Matter at Least When Talking about Content Trends

Longer, more in-depth content is cool. We see companies planning for more of  in-depth content and whitepapers in their 2017 budgets. The 350 word articles or blog posts that no one reads just won’t cut it in 2017 …1500–2000 words with lots of value, credibility. Posts/articles/papers are less frequent but meaningful with long shelf life.

What is the future of technology?

With Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp for $19 Billion, I'm wondering is it the same old question about the technology or subscriber reach? WhatsApp definitely has the reach across the world with 450 million users but it also has the infrastructure in the application to use mobile broadband instead of fee-based telecom.

It's all about Telcom and who owns the pipe, always has been. But that got me thinking what about the future of technology? Why is Google and Apple all about the Robots and Artificial Intelligence? Anticipation of behavior? Modelling?

Ruven Cohen, Forbes Contributer, who I met a couple of times at SXSW really puts that question in a great framework. Read this article: What's Driving Google's Obsession with Artificial Intelligence and Robots

Ultimately, we want to be prepared to sell what people want in the future. The easiest and most intuitive way possible.

One Sheet is the coolest, quickest website maker for Bands. Period. is very cool. If you are a band, take one minute and setup your onesheet. Never has connecting all of your syndicated content, comings and goings, this and that been so easy. If you are not technically inclined, take 90 seconds and watch the video. You have to do this.

I have been a music lover, local band and venue supporter for years. I have a place for local bands and venues to add their upcoming events on Bands and venues can email me with the calendar they want access to and they can update.

Anyway, is supporting the bands. Very cool. Love love it.

Trading Flash for HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3 is Cool

It's about the mobile device, silly.

And, Flash is not accessible on most mobile devices. I can't stand going to a website through my Blackberry (my phone of choice) and the info is not there because it it is of Flash origin.

Don't get me wrong Flash is a great tool sites that need to run complex animations or web games. It's time to learn more about HTML5, Java and CSS3. Your website is going mobile...even though you don't know it yet.
