A must-read. This article frames the conversation around what we think will be the key things that will evolve in 2015.

It’s January, and that means by now most pundits have shared their predictions around the biggest technology trends that will emerge this year. A few months ago, Gartner shared its list of the most transformative technologies of 2015, along with the ones that should command the most budget among B2B buyers. Prognostications abound around consumer digital trends, and many others have shared what they think 2015 holds for digital marketing.

If we look at some of the biggest tensions, opportunities and dynamics going on where all these technology trends intersect—and if we look at where many of the largest marketing war chests are already being spent—it isn’t all that difficult to see where some of the most compelling narratives are going to emerge around technology in 2015. Here are a few of the overarching technology storylines that will unfold this year—and that will give technology companies of…

Dusting Off the Cobwebs of This Blog

Instead of “retiring” this blog, I’ve decided to dust off the cobwebs and bring it back to life by writing about topics that interest me enormously.

With my other blogs, I write about social media marketing and all the different platforms within it; SEO; local search; and web design for the business owner audience.

Here, I will write purely for me, in hopes that others (like YOU, maybe) might find my articles interesting enough to read and maybe even share, if you want to (no pressure, really).

Topics I get super excited about (besides the ones I cover in my other blogs):

  • AI
  • Data
  • Data Analysis to solve problems
  • The Future
  • Technology
  • Patterns in our culture, in ourselves, in our physical environment and how these fit into big patterns
  • Predicting the Future by Using Data Analysis
  • Movies
  • Writers, Artists, Inventors
  • Drones
  • Video
  • Our Transforming World (on a broad basis and on a minutia basis)

I enjoy learning new things related to how and why humans behave the way we do, so if you have a subject you think I might be interested in, please suggest it. Thanks for reading!

The 5 stories that defined the big data market in 2014

I’m convinced that Data Analysis is the closest thing we’ll have to AI. In fact, I think that it IS Artificial Intelligence. It reveals SO much. All we need to do is know what patterns to look for and what questions to ask of it. Here’s a reblogged article from about the top 5 stories that defined the big data market in 2014.


There is no other way to put it: 2014 was a huge year for the big data market. It seems years of talk about what’s possible are finally giving way to some real action on the technology front — and there’s a wave of cash following close behind it.

Here are the five stories from the past year that were meaningful in their own rights, but really set the stage for bigger things to come. We’ll discuss many of these topics in depth at our Structure Data conference in March, but until then feel free to let me know in the comments what I missed, where I went wrong or why I’m right.

5. Satya Nadella takes the reins at Microsoft

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has long understood the importance of data to the company’s long-term survival, and his ascendance to the top spot ensures Microsoft won’t lose sight of that. Since Nadella…
