How High Can You Go? High-Hydration Challenge!

How High Can You Go? High-Hydration Challenge! Submitted by Amara on May 25, 2020 - 11:14pm. When I first saw this section, I thought it meant challenges like competitions, not challenges like struggles you were having. I'm obviously in the minority of that train of thought, but you can't prove that I'm wrong! As I have finally managed to restock strong flour via reaching out to local farmers and getting an enormous wholesale bag, I'm really excited to try out more difficult and cha...

Balancing SEO and Accessibility: Images, Videos, and Typography

When asked by a less digital-savvy acquaintance, “What do you do?” I usually answer by saying, “Connecting people and businesses.” Typically, that is what we do. In SEO, our job is to strategize and tweak our clients’ content to make it what searchers are looking for, so they click and convert—whether that is a newsletter sign up or SAAS purchase. But getting people to reach your content is just one part of the puzzle; they also have to understand it. Like longtail bottom of funnel keywords, it ...

Will Artificial Intelligence Take Your Job?

A PEW RESEARCH CENTER study found that Americans are roughly twice as likely to express worry (72%) than enthusiasm about a future in which robots and computers are capable of doing many jobs that are currently done by humans. Of course, people have always worried that technology would take over their job. Gutenberg’s press probably created more social upheaval than any technological advancement has yet to do today. The sixteen-century Vicar of Croydon warned, “We must root out printing or pri...

Marketing and the Tension Between Contrarianism and Traditionalism

I started and stopped this post four times as I tried to find the right way to open. Eventually I got tired of searching and figured it was easiest to just jump off the note I wrote to myself in Google Keep after the idea popped into my head: That might not make so much sense (yet), but like any good note it captured enough of the concept that I remembered what I was thinking when I wrote it. I jotted it down as I was prepping for a webinar I did last week offering up some predictions for marke...

Bringing in the Sheaves: Harvest Table Inspiration from Caro of Somerset

Holiday table forecast: botanical clouds ahead. Suspended like rustic chandeliers, artful bundles of grass have been cropping up all over Instagrammed party spreads from Berlin and Amsterdam. This season we’re taking inspiration from a Nordic supper staged by Caro, Natalie Jones’s design shop, a favorite Remodelista pilgrimage stop in the town of Bruton, in Somerset, England.

Happening Without Us

I love this so much: In fact, Microsoft would never have happened without Paul. In December 1974, he and I were both living in the Boston area—he was working, and I was going to college. One day he came and got me, insisting that I rush over to a nearby newsstand with him. When we arrived, he showed me the cover of the January issue of Popular Electronics. It featured a new computer called the Altair 8800, which ran on a powerful new chip. Paul looked at me and said: “This is happening withou...

‘Get Shorty’: Season 2 Teaser And Synopsis Released

Epix has released its first-ever promo clip for Season 2 of “Get Shorty.” The 27-second video teaser is something of a fake-out as it starts as a red-carpet photo op that suddenly transforms into a police lineup. Much to Miles (Chris O’Dowd), Rick (Ray Romano), Louis (Sean Bridgers), and Amara’s (Lidio Porto) surprise, those who are telling them to “move to the left” and “move to the right” aren’t professional event photographers, but rather members of the police.

Amara’s Law

I can’t stop thinking about Roy Amara’s adage about forecasting future technology: We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run. This couldn’t be more true in bitcoin and blockchain. The hype cycle is real and most of the projects that are coming up online will not be here in 12-18 months. Why? Because folks overestimate the effect (i.e. monetization potential, business opportunity, getting rich af…) and simply do not have th...

Meet The Love & Hip Hop Star That's Sparking A Heated Conversation About Race

Since the very first episode of Love & Hip Hop 's latest franchise edition in Miami in January, Amara La Negra has clearly been the breakout star.
