I'm looking forward to traveling to Paris, France the week after next to provide the opening keynote to the Intersection Conference. Intersection is an intriguing new multi-disciplinary event organ...
Wow, wish I was headed to Paris for the Intersection conference. Nope, I might get a lunch at The Pit BBQ in downtown Raleigh. Paris, yeah no so much :). M

Happy ThanksgivingAs intriguing as the "cold tell you" title is the real reason sharing web design and Internet marketing secrets like these is difficult is how automatic the thinking becomes after 15 years.
Since it is Thanksgiving I wanted to SLOW DOWN and share 5 "inside baseball" secrets about how to create a new kind of real estate design for my realtor Stephanie Lane. *Five Inside Baseball Website Design Secrets*1. Use Wordpress Themes. 2. Solve the Umbrella Brand Problem.
3. Tease The Click Don't Drown it. 4. Test Video marketing.
5. Align nonverbals.
6. People and stories sell not cool tech. Hope these ideas share the "inside baseball" reasons we start with a certain design to achieve objectives. Every idea BEFORE people are visiting a website is worth LESS the moment real people are clicking, so you want that day to happen as soon as possible. https://plus.google.com/102639884404823294558/posts/aRn9V8dXVg4 Happy Thanksgiving!
My 3 post-cancer BHAGs are DONE! We launched the last of my triptych last week when http://www.curcancerstarter.org joined http://www.curecancerstore.org and they join my 2010 bicycle ride to "cure cancer" across America. So now that I'm a man of leisure I've decided to print a book about the Lean Design Movement in 3 weeks. Today I had an epiphany.
Thought it was a stroke at first, but nope an honest to goodness epiphany. Here are the links that will explain the Lean Design Movement:

I’ve invited great friends and writers to draft off of the concept feeding it into their particular expertise or loves. I asked @RobinGood to write about cool tools, Guillaume and Ally to share how creating a cool tool like Scoop.it helps the movement (asked Kelly and Paper.li team too). I am paying all printing costs and profits will go to the Story of Cancer Foundation. Will probably have my friend Meredith Pratt do the book design and print with LuLu (they are here in Raleigh, NC). Goal is to have a book about how the Lean Design Movement changes everything. I left an open chapter. If you would like to contribute 1,000 words by Halloween jump in and send your thoughts to Martin(at)StoryofCancer.org. If we receive more than one submission for the open chapter we will create a social poll or something. Here is your chance to be a published author and have your contribution along side some great writers and Internet marketers. I'm paying all publishing costs and profits, if there are any, will help cure cancer so jump in, write 1,000 words on how something you love and know well will be changed by the Lean Content Movement. Deadline 10.31 Send your submission to Martin(at)StoryofCancer.org
Six out of ten large companies want to be customer experience leaders, but only 5% of organizations earned excellent ratings in the 2013 Temkin Experience Ratings. What makes it so hard to deliver ...
Cool and haven't heard this term "people-centered" design but with experience being the new branding it makes sense to put people at the center of design.

Yeah this is cool.
We've received a lot of great feedback in CureCancerStarter.org's first 10 days. Some of that feedback tells us our current homepage video works better as an About Us video than an explanation of what crowdfunding cancer research is about and why the new cancer research revolution is so important. If you are a graphic designer who can animate we hope you will apply and win our 99Designs contest.
We all need a bit of design inspiration from time to time. If you're stuck in a creative cul de sac, take a read through these inspiring design quotes
