I Want My MTV

I remember when it came on the air. I watched a lot of music on that channel back in the day.
On August 1, 1981, MTV took to the U.S. airwaves, forever changing the landscape of American music and pop culture.

I was on a ship in the Indian Ocean on the day MTV premeired, but when we got to Diego Garcia, everyone was talking about it. Didn't see it for myself until October.

The Switchback

It's how we drive up the steep roads 'round these parts. Back in the day, on a snowy day, I did a pretty good fishtail coming around the corner in my Honda Prelude. Check out the moon over Baldy in the distance.

No.5 Google+ is Alive!

Via +Denis Labelle 
 
I don't often share press articles about our products – they rarely seem to say much of use – but this was just such a good case of a journalist Getting It Right that I had to share. Google+ is very much alive, and our recent changes are focused on making it be the best product it can be for what it's best at: helping people meet people and have great conversations about things they're passionate about. 

One particularly noteworthy thing in this article is its discussion of the "majority illusion:" people tend to assume that their friends are typical of the wider world, but almost by definition they aren't – for one thing, they all have one uncommon attribute in common, which is being your friend in the first place. And since people don't choose their friends randomly from the entire spectrum of humanity, one's friends are always a distorted sample. 

So yes, we have here a tech press article which (correctly) uses an important result in cognitive psychology to explain why lots of tech press articles are nonsense.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Tile

An early post for #caturday
 
An archaeologist at the Gloucester City Museum in the UK has uncovered evidence that even 2000 years ago, cats were determined to wreak havoc. A cat’s pawprint has been discovered on a roof tile was that first uncovered in Gloucester in 1969 and recently reexamined. Upon second look, the researcher spotted the small but telltale signs of cattitude.
Cats, ruining things since the beginning of time.

Green Means Go

Not too long ago I handed over some design elements to my programmer and he put a red button on the contact me CTA. I saw that and had him change it to green. It was so obvious to me, but for him...
 
One of the best blanket choices for a CTA button color is green.
Sorry, there really isn't one. But these five tips will help you increase your clicks and conversions.

Interesting observation. I try to limit the use of red on my site, so that where I do, it pops. This would be an interesting experiment.

I live in Breckenridge, Colorado and love to take photos and interact via new media.  I like to ski, hike, run, paddle and explore the mountains any chance I get.

I started out working three jobs just to live where I wanted to be.  I've worked as a ski / snowboard instructor, bar doorman, spa / healthclub, snowmaker, town rec center, snowmobile guide, lifeguard, climbing wall guy, nordic center, and outdoor educator.  

Then, I met my wife and became a small business entrepreneur.  I have been progressive in identifying the niche needs in particular markets and industries.  

I have many ideas for my field of work and hope to use technology to save people time, money, and have a great experience solving their problems and meeting their needs.

Join me in my journey to learn best practices, the latest technology, and how to market effectively.  I have just created an online resource and wedding blog for our local mountain area
