Today’s either the last day of life on Earth, or the first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere… Either way, it’s officially 4 days until Christmas, and 10 days until New Year’s Eve! That said, I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas, happy New Year, and joyous whatever the heck else you may be celebrating!
I hope you get some time to kick back, relax, maybe read some articles on a new mobile device? ‘Tis the season for new toys, right? Here are a few of the articles, blog posts, etc. that I have bookmarked to read over the long weekend:
Disrupting Amazon: Rethinking eCommerce – You can’t beat Amazon by simply copying it. Another eCom giant will eventually beat Amazon’s model… but they won’t do it until they can disrupt Amazon’s model. Most companies are trying to do what Amazon does, only better. And let’s face it, that’s not working.
2013: The Year of the Online Writer – Good news, writers. Content marketing is going to be red hot in 2013. And you can’t really have content marketing with out first having content — that’s where you come in. Get ready to swoop in and write some heroic copy in the new year. I’m pretty sure Copyblogger isn’t just saying that to be self-serving…
Programmer Begins Selling 100,000 eBooks on Amazon with New Algorithm– I have no doubt that a algorithm can write a book. My question is: Can that book really be worth reading? Who the heck’s got time to read a boring book these days?
When I first heard the name Safari – I love stories about naming things, especially products, because it used to be so hard for me. It still is, actually. Why is it so freakin’ hard to name things? Maybe that’s why it feels so good when you finally settle on a winner.
