Batman vs Superman

http://moviepilot.com/posts/2015/05/20/batman-vs-superman-comparing-the-dark-knight-with-the-man-of-steel-2946515

Comparing Batman to Superman, Bruce Wayne to Clark Kent, is a very difficult process. Both their superhero personas and their alter-egos couldn't be more different. Yet at the end of the day, they are great friends and two legs of the Justice League Trinity. (If you think about all three leaders of the Justice League, Wonder Woman is again completely different from both Batman and Superman in more ways than just the fact that she's a woman, but I suppose that's a whole other blog post.)

Prioritization is the name of the game.
 
What Really Matters: Focusing on Top Tasks via Gerry McGovern #productivity #prodmgmt
Every piece of web content is important—or so every stakeholder insists. But what happens when dozens, even hundreds, of different tasks battle for space on your homepage and in your navigation? It’s time to make some hard choices about what does and doesn’t belong. Gerry McGovern demonstrates how to zero in on the tasks that matter most to your users.

Add your opinion to this poll: is Glass 2 coming at #io15?
 
Alright. What the consensus? Will we see Google Glass 2.0 at Google I/O next week? 

Personally, I think we might hear /about/ Glass at some point, but (unless I hear otherwise over the next few days) I don't think we're going to see an unveiling. It has only been a few months since Tony Fadell took over the project and I'm pretty sure—knowing Fadell—that he wants to build this out to be the consumer-ready product it has the potential to be. I don't think it's possible that the team has put anything together by now for a real announcement.

However, I did hear back in February (http://9to5google.com/2015/02/19/sources-glass-at-work-partners-testing-new-google-glass/) from a few reliable sources that Google was seeding /some/ model of Glass to /some/ Glass at Work partners. Could this have been a previous prototype that was being readied by the older team (and now scrapped)? Could we be seeing this device announced at I/O? No idea. But I doubt it. I think Google's going to focus on Cardboard this time around. 

Would love to be told I'm wrong if +Artem Russakovskii, +Derek Ross , or someone better connected than I has something to say about this.

Make your logo bigger, your CTA buttons brighter, and your forms shorter!

If only it were that simple.    :P

1. Understand both the conscious and unconscious parts of your customers' decision making process.
2. Realize that there's a negative message as well as a positive one.
3. TLDR; is a real thing! Make impactful headlines.
4. Options aren't always a good thing.
5. Happy customers are the best salespeople.
6. Curiosity is a powerful tool.

Reach is important, but conversions happen after a multi-touch conversation. Digital advertising is a journey. Help your customers learn more about your business and products until they are ready to purchase.
 
Google says that larger-screened devices are helping the mobile ad business

While Google’s ad business is definitely in a transition phase, largely due to the shift away from personal computers towards mobile handsets, Google’s Senior Vice President of Ads & Commerce Sridhar Ramaswamy says that the company is handling this move…

True. Windows Phones use predominantly black backgrounds, and when used with a Super AMOLED display like the ATIV SE, they get incredible battery life.

The web is a journey... not a destination.
Introduction
I love web content management systems and site builders!

Check out my personal blog at extremis.com.

I've launched web projects on nearly every platform/stack imaginable: corporate sites with massive, multilingual content systems, social blogs, financial sales pages, ecommerce stores... and, of course, websites on all the different site builders and hosts. But like my father used to tell me: it's about the journey, not the destination. My current focus is on driving traffic through digital advertising at Dealer.com.

I think the future is about wearable devices and ubiquitous computing:
    - Web / Cloud Computing
        invertedWeb.com
    - Wearable / Mobile Technology
        GoogleGlassFans.com
        LivingThruGlass.com

    - The Internet of Things
    - Robotics

I started a few Google+ Communities:
    Google Web Starter Kit
    Ubiquitous computing
    Android Wear
    Android TV
    Android Auto

I'm obsessed with: Q.bo, Google Glass, META, Moto360, Myo, Fin, Dash, Lumo Lift, ZBoard, Automatic, SmartThings, the Ubi, Nest, Bionic Power, SolePower, and K-Tor.
