If you attended art school, I highly recommend a film called Art School Confidential. It follows a shy, but talented young man as he leaves high school and enters Strathmore College where he runs up against the usual collective of students who maintain “different” personality traits that aggravate him no end. A fellow student, played by the actor who was the über nerd from the film Grandma’s Boy and blue [...]

Following its victory over Apple in a major e-book antitrust case, the Justice Department has asked a federal judge to force the tech company to allow links to rival e-book prices and storefronts in, say, Amazon or Barnes & Noble iOS apps. Apple currently forbids such links, which could let users click away to make purchases that wouldn’t return a cut to the iPhone maker. (See also: Judge: Apple Conspired To Fix Prices Of [...]

Advertise here with BSA I heard a friend say the other day that web designers measure time in deadlines. Maybe that is an overstatement, but time is of the essence. They need to get a high quality job done as fast as possible. For the most part, a designer’s working process involves the use of acceptable images, and I believe I’ve found a great resource for this purpose: Stockfresh, coming [...]

Last night, as I watched “Jobs,” the new Apple-founder biopic starring Ashton Kutcher, I realized something: Jobs was not a disruptor. The movie doesn’t open until August 16, but Open Road Films, the studio releasing it, had invited me and the ReadWrite community to a private screening in San Francisco, after which I moderated a question-and-answer session with Kutcher and the film’s director, Joshua Michael Stern. Kutcher may be burned [...]

As a contrast to the many Web design articles that focus on successes and what we can learn from those triumphs, this article looks to the other end of the spectrum to explore what failures teach us. Along the way, [...]

We don’t have a mind-reading machine yet, but that’s not to say we don’t have the technology to create one. The technique of functional MRI (fMRI), which measure changes in localized brain activity over time, can now be used to infer information regarding who we are thinking about, what we have seen and the memories we are recalling. As the technology for inferring thought from brain activity continues to improve, [...]

Since its construction in 1889, more than 250 million people have visited Paris’ iconic Eiffel Tower. The highest monument in the world for more than 40 years (today that title is held by Burj Khalifa in Dubai), the Eiffel Tower remains the most visited monument globally. But not everyone has been or can hope to go—until now. If you’ve ever wondered what the view is like from above the City [...]

Sixty-five years ago today, the Manchester Small Scale Experimental Machine—nicknamed “Baby”—became the earliest computer in the world to run a program electronically stored in its memory. This was a flagship moment: the first implementation of the stored program concept that underpins modern computing. Earlier computers had their instructions hardwired into their physical design or held externally on punched paper tape or cards. Reprogramming them to do a different task entailed [...]

I’ll start this post off with my point: Dismissing search is ignoring demand from buyers & the media. A digital marketing exec I follow on Twitter shared a CMI article that posted this weekend: “Why SEO May Be Irrelevant When It Comes to B2B Thought Leadership”. As a long time realist about the role of search in online marketing, I wasn’t sure if this was simply linkbait or a well [...]
