What if we just did away with the whole blog category thing?  
Plato said Socrates thought very little of the then-newfangled objects that were books, arguing that the written word impinged upon man’s ability to remember and to think. In the early 60s, Marshall McCluhan went on to write about “media determinism,” an idea suggesting that our communications technologies shape the way we think. Anyone who has […]

As a died-in-the-wool vegetarian, Arby's is lost on my.  But I sure appreciate the social media work they've done.

What a great idea to showcase the social mentions to the whole office. That must go a long way to getting doubters on board.

Though reductionist, still interesting rules of thumb.

Some wee changes to the Google SERP.
 
You may have noticed that Google Search on desktop looks a little different today.

Towards the end of last year we launched some pretty big design improvements for Search on mobile and tablet devices (mobile first! :-). Today we've carried over several of those changes to the desktop experience.

We've increased the size of result titles, removed the underlines, and evened out all the line heights. This improves readability and creates an overall cleaner look. We've also brought over our new ad labels from mobile, making the multi-device experience more consistent.

Improving consistency in design across platforms makes it easier for people to use Google Search across devices and it makes it easier for us to develop and ship improvements across the board.

Tagline
Artist, painter, drummer, writer, marketer, entrepreneur...
Introduction

I'm the CEO and co-founder of DragonSearch, one of the finest boutique digital marketing agencies in the world. On my way there, I've had over 20 years of experience in graphic design, information architecture, web development and digital marketing.  I'm fortunate to have created an organization that has attracted some incredibly talented individuals, which has enabled me to write books and provide presentations on what I've learned to audiences world-wide. In between, I'm a guest columnist forMarketing Land, Social Media Monthly, Sensei Marketing, BrandFlair, and other popular blogs. 

None of us are just one thing, though. I'm also a painter and artist (you can see some of my work here).

OMG - these guys charge $20 to have a payoff letter faxed. It's free if sent in the mail, $20 to fax? Stories like this are what we love when we're doing talks about bad customer service.

Maxwell's is heaven on earth for drummers. The staff is wonderful - knowledgeable and helpful. If you're a serious drummer, this is a must-visit stop when you're in NYC. Or even North America.
