Ranking for Web Development Company (ies) and Firms...
Good feedback from Robin made me realize I didn't explain why this link is cool, why I scooped it into Curation Revolution. Here is why I included it:
- I liked the dimensions of the evaluation, the report card (especially the process grades for source code to industry standards, etc...)
- Like the Matrix Approach as it tends to normalize out the data a little (and that is the good and bad news :)
- One thing I like about putting stuff in a matrix is to see what pops
A massive amount of data about companies and process like this allows me to look for exceptions and then explore to see if there are ideas, passions or approaches that reinforce what I'm already doing, imply a re-think of what I am doing or something I should be smart enough to steal outright.
Picasso said Great Artists STEAL, good artist copy. What the master meant was when HE (Picasso) steals something it goes into an engine so unique that only Picasso knows of the theft. I hope my Internet marketing and curation process is just such an engine. If you can see through to the direct steals then I'm not doing my job. Ultimately the canvas we paint in Internet marketing is about what and how we LOVE and so my stealing ideas only makes what I'm up to that much more unique. Strange theory to think the more we steal the more orginal we become, but such are the times we inhabit :). Picasso would have been a MONSTER Internet marketer, curator and truly dangerous on Scoop.it.
The reason I LOVE this much data gridded up in this way is stuff flies off the page for investigation and in the world I live in (Internet marketing and my particular expertise is ecommerce) when so robustly represented. The irony, not lost on someone who believes Curation Is the Next Web Revolution, is curation's absence. I'm just crazy enough to belive the next time this matrix comes out all of us have impressed upon all of them the importance of CURATION as a category.
