Powerful TV Exec Vows to Fill Half Directing Jobs With Women, Minorities

Well, here's something. I like that he has a specific plan with his initiative - building and distributing a database of talented directors so that producers have something to draw from. No excuses.

The only mobile app conversion rate that matters

Clicks, and even clicks-to-installs are not really a good measure of conversions. After all, these numbers don't say anything about how useful or enjoyable your mobile app actually is, or whether you have the ability to engage with users repeatedly over time.

Install-to-value is a measurement that determines how valuable the user finds the mobile app when it comes to daily activity on their mobile device. Are they actually using it? Is it delivering value? This is much more difficult to produce results for.

This post covers the stages to measuring your app's use and marketing in the right ways to drive optimal results.

Why Haven't Video Game Consoles Died Yet?

It's a good question. It seems with all of the gaming options available today, the classic console would be struggling to maintain an audience. But, the opposite is true.

Mobile gaming has served more to open up the market to new audiences than to take customers from console makers. And, streaming capabilities are not up to par for delivering a consistently high-quality game experience right now. So, what consoles provide (including its online extensions) is still highly valued by many gamers.

Full breakdown of the market here: http://flip.it/1NlQE
This week, EA made headlines because they released an estimate which said that 55 million new-gen consoles had been sold so far. That’s a headline because when you take Sony’s freely offered-up figures of 36 million PS4s sold, that leaves 19 million Xbox Ones, meaning it’s being outsold almost 2:1. [...]

The Modern Approach To Branding

Is the purpose of a brand to focus on a small group of valuable customers—grow your relationship with those customers—and create products and services that appeal only to this small group? Or do we create a brand that is tangible for everyone, customers and non-customers alike?
Think about NASA. When I say NASA you might think exploration, innovation, ingenuity. NASA means something. It’s not just what NASA does that provides associations—it’s what NASA stands for, what it means. It meant something when we put a man on the moon. It meant something for people who had no participation whatsoever. [...]

I've gone for the 'cook your own dinner' before. Not my favorite experience, but that's me. Their wine is decent. But, the annual 2-day festival the first weekend in September is an event I never miss. Ever. Great atmosphere to spend the day with friends walking through the vineyard and listening to live music with a bottle of wine.

One of my favorite places to go for lunch when I'm in the area. Great food. The hot and sour soup is something I have to get with my meal every time.

Nice staff. But, I avoid going here because the parking lot is so torn up. Nothing but potholes everywhere getting worse year after year. If they don't care to fix it, I don't care to spend money here.

Went here for an early dinner on Saturday. It has a rustic look with wooden walls and furniture to compliment the wood-fired oven. The lights are in lanterns. Local craft brews on tap. Pizza is great. I liked the service.

First time here this morning. I went through the drive thru and got their "red eye" coffee with shots of espresso. It was really good. The service was friendly, and I like the original menu. I'll be going back again.

The decor of the restaurant is nice. Stone work, aquarium, framed photos of the city, etc. Like many restaurants, the lobby/waiting area is horribly inefficient with people waiting in line to get on the list several minutes before realizing that it wasn't a line at all, just people milling around waiting to be called to their table. The food is pretty much the same cookie-cutter food you would get at any American chain restaurant - you have your burgers, seafood options, appetizers that are the same as anywhere else. I know this doesn't apply to everyone, but there is a real lack of vegetarian options - either a plate full of sides, or the spag-lasagna with marinara instead of meat sauce. At the very least, it would be nice to be able to sub a veggie burger for meat in their burger choices. The food was average - I had onion rings (good batter), chips & queso, spinach dip, salad, and spag-lasagna. Nothing I would have to go back for. The service was good though, and the prices are fair.
