Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
TV as we know it, is over. The formula that worked for years, works no more. The same way MP3s “killed” the music industry, modern technology, high speed internet, and companies like Netflix have “killed” TV. Now we binge!
If Shakespeare were alive today, what do you think he’d have to say about today’s literacy? All of these LOLs and OMGs, hashtags and 140 character snippets. He’d think we’ve all gone mad, turned back into cavemen—this is certainly not prose! Would he have a point? Have we regressed, or has our literacy just evolved?
After all the success the viral video on “how to be a Vancouverite” has had, I think it’s time time to expand the series with other major Canadian cities. After being born and raised in Edmonton, I vote the next in line should be “How to be an Edmontonian”.
Got a question? Got a problem? What do you do? Google it (sorry Bing). If your company has the answers people need, you have to rank first—or at least on the first page. Page 2 won’t cut it—out of sight, out of mind. Money can buy you happiness (if ranking at the top of a search makes you happy), but there is something you can do that won’t cost an arm and a leg It’ll give you an advantage when it comes to search rankings. Blog. Do it now, and do it often.
We knew there’d be a 5C, in many colors. We knew there’d be a 5S. It’d come in white, black (sorry, granite), and a new gold option—aka champagne. The numbers are in, and it looks like the gold takes the win, selling out almost instantly. Who knew? Not Apple.
When tragedy strikes, the news is where people used to turn for the latest and greatest—until the Internet. Then along came social media. This is the new News. Isn’t being hyper-connected great? What’s better than reality television than actual real television? Sadly, both can be equally as fake.
