Are Your Webinars Changing With The Times?

Behavioral trends have been much on my mind lately. Especially in the ways that they affect the webcast/webinar industry. I believe it's possible that we are witnessing a fundamental shift in what people want from online presentations.Let's approach it tangentially. Instead of looking at webinars, let's look at other forms of communication. Infographics are the new white paper. Emailing has been replaced by text messaging (more slowly in business than in personal life). Text messages went from f...

Russia Is Helping Elect Trump Again, Intel Official Says

Intelligence officials briefed House lawmakers last week that Russian actors were interfering in the 2020 elections, once more to the benefit of Donald Trump. The contents of the briefing, which was first reported by The New York Times, sparked a series of dramatic events that have further eroded relations between Hill Democrats and the White House, and prompted the president—it appears—to appoint a top political ally to oversee the nation’s national security apparatus. The meeting, which took p...

After Brexit, Britain may finally lose its Marbles — specifically the ones they stole from Greece

In the early 1800s, agents working for Thomas Bruce of Scotland, the 7th Earl of Elgin, conveniently “removed” about half of the remaining marble statues from the Parthenon, as well as a few other Greek sculptures, and brought them back to Britain in the name of art history cultural preservation colonialism. Bruce claimed to have permission from the Ottoman Empire to borrow these artifacts, but others have insisted that this is total bullshit. This has — understandably! — resulted in some ...

The Times of Bill Cunningham Delightfully Captures the Fashion Photographer’s Artistry—and His More Sensitive Side

Even those of us who used to await and savor Bill Cunningham’s street-fashion photochronicle every week in the New York Times—where his work appeared from 1978 to 2016—probably had no idea how precious, in time, those photographs would come to be. Cunningham had two beats: society parties and, better yet, the polychrome cavalcade of fashion as seen on the streets of Paris and, most frequently, New York. His “On the Street” column, which featured candid pictures of individuals arranged into ...

Chinese Government Authorities Criticized For Stifling Early Response To Coronavirus
