Reach is overrated

It might be the biggest misconception in all of advertising. The Super Bowl has reach. Google has reach. Radio has reach. So? Why do you care if you can, for more money, reach more people? Why wouldn’t it make more sense to reach the right people instead? To pick an absurd example, you can use a giant radio telescope to beam messages to the billions or trillions of aliens that live in other solar systems. Worth it? I read an overview that pointed out that one of the cons of Amazon advertising wa...

Free: Play the Original “Minecraft” in Your Browser

A quick heads up from Engadget: “Minecraft is celebrating its 10th birthday by making its Classic version easily playable on web browsers. You don't need to download any files to make it work, and you don't have to pay a cent for access. Since Classic was only the second phase in the game's development cycle, its features are pretty limited. You'll only have 32 blocks to work with, most of which are dyed wool, and it's strictly creative mode only. But who needs zombies, skeletons and oth...

I’m reading the free sample of Arabs: A 3,000-Year History of Peoples, Tribes and Empires, by Tim Mackintosh-Smith, that Amazon sent me for my Kindle (a very useful service), and I’m enjoying it greatly — he’s a fine writer with a deep knowledge of Yemen (where he lives) and history. But he has an unfortunate weakness for recondite words that will mean nothing to almost any conceivable reader and that (to my mind) are not worth the effort of winkling out from the resources of the internet.
