The 10 Best Corporate Blogs in the World

The 10 Best Corporate Blogs in the World | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

My reaction to most company blogs: “Blah, Blah and Double Blah!”

 

I recently taught a class on corporate blogging at the amazing social media marketing graduate program at Rutgers University.  In my research for the class, I pored through hundreds of websites looking for examples of the best company blogs in the world.

 

Amid the coal pile that is the state of corporate blogging today, I did manage to find a few diamonds that don’t bore to tears with pronouncements, promotions and product announcements (the Killer P’s)....

My business storytelling colleagues at Sparknow in London put together this 4 min. video about their working with stories in an organization. The Museum of London participated and I love what the participants came up with!


This video is very thought-provoking because its the Museum folks themselves who are talking about their take on working with stories. And it's not all roses and rainbows. Thorny issues do arise.


The video gives us a taste of these and the links in the blog post give us other insights into the sticky wicket of working with stories in organizations. Plus I came away from these explorations with a few more ideas -- always a good thing!


Enjoy.

Furthermore, over one billion users watch six billion hours of video per month on YouTube, and US digital video spending is expected to double in only three years from $4.1 billion in 2013 to $8.04 billion in 2016.

4 Ways Wearable Tech Could Change Your Marketing Strategy | CMI

4 Ways Wearable Tech Could Change Your Marketing Strategy | CMI | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

...Given how quickly the wearables market is developing, Snodgrass believes marketers need to carve out a small amount of budget now to do what he calls micro-tests. “Focus half of your mobile team on trying to understand and explore how this new market works. At the least, the market share for mobile will flow naturally into the market share for wearables.

 

”Schonfeld concurs, saying marketing teams will benefit from some wearables-spurred experimentation — even if it doesn’t yet lead to integrating wearables in the marketing strategy. “For quantified-self wearables, it’s all about the data. How can brands tap into that data or enhance it to actually deliver value to consumers? Glass is more experimental, but thinking about ways to market on a heads-up screen could lead to broader insights about mobile marketing in general.”...

Americans Can't Even Focus On TV Anymore

Americans Can't Even Focus On TV Anymore | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Much has been written about the distractibility of the modern American. In the past decade, diagnoses of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorders have skyrocketed, the listicle conquered the internet, and there was even a report that goldfish now have longer attention spans than the average American.

 

Now it appears that watching television, itself a diversion, requires more focus than we can muster.

 

Forbes reports that a new study from the consulting group TNS found that 56% of Americans engage in another digital activity (playing with their phones, tablets, or laptops) while they are watching TV. That puts the U.S. ahead of the global average, which is 48%, but well behind Japan, where 79% of TV viewers are using a different device while they do it...,

Integrating social media with TV offers great ROI potential for marketers.

56% van de Amerikanen gebruikt dus een mobile device terrwijl e aan het tv kijken zijn. Da's veel, maar een wereldwijd gemiddelde van 48% vind ik toch ook best hoog! 

Nu moet ik ook zeggen dat menig tv programma alleen maar leuk is om naar te kijken wanneer je ondertussen via je mobiel of tablet Twitter en Facebook volgt om te lezen wat er allemaal over gezegd wordt.. Met name de verschillende (muziek) talenten programma's zijn pas weer echt bezienswaardig geworden nadat het gebruik van Twitter en Facebook gemeengoed is geworden.

Hong Kong: Want your bilingual kids to get ahead? Teach them a third language: computer code | SCMP.com

Hong Kong: Want your bilingual kids to get ahead? Teach them a third language: computer code | SCMP.com | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Whether or not they dazzle in final exams, students are expected to be numerate and literate, preferably at least in two languages (English and Chinese for most youngsters here). They may soon have to add a third language if they are to get ahead in the 21st century: code.

 

Computer programming, or machine language, code defines much of modern society. It drives all those apps which many rely on everyday to communicate, do business and navigate the world, and policy makers in developed countries have been working on ways to ensure that youngsters speak code.

 

In Hong Kong, some efforts have begun to instil code literacy. Ray Cheung Chak-chun, an assistant professor at the City University Apps Lab, has been running a series of workshops called "We Can Code", to teach secondary school students the ins and outs of creating mobile apps. At the same time, British entrepreneur David Greenwood started Code Club HK, a volunteer-run network to promote coding among children aged from nine to 11 at after-school activities.

 

That is far from adequate if Hong Kong is to realise its dreams of being a tech hub, let alone keep apace with global practices.

 

"I won't say Hong Kong is behind the rest of the world. But to become a leader, you need to do more than enough," says Yat Siu, founder and CEO of web-technology company Outblaze.

Dumbing down the Internet of Things with Spark OS | Colin Neagle | NetworkWorld.com

Dumbing down the Internet of Things with Spark OS | Colin Neagle | NetworkWorld.com | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

A little over a year ago, the people behind the Spark system for connecting everyday devices to the internet launched a Kickstarter campaign seeking a modest $10,000 in funding.

 

Today, the company announced $4.9 million in Series A funding, The Next Web reports. Maybe they’re onto something.

 

The funding coincides with the announcement of the Spark OS, which aims to make it easier for anyone – from seasoned network engineers and developers to hobbyists and designers – to build internet-connected devices.

 

The Spark Core, which has been available in beta since November and is already featured in a couple of commercial products, is a $39 board that runs Arduino code and provides connectivity to a previously disconnected device. The new cloud-based Spark operating system aims to make Core-enabled devices truly smart without becoming too expensive. Some examples, as shown in the ironic but sufficiently illustrative promotional video below, include programming lights to turn on automatically after sunset or doors to lock themselves after they've been shut.

 

The idea is not just to make it easier to connect the devices that people want to connect, but to make the best possible use of that connectivity. A cloud operating system, as pointed out in the above video, means this connectivity can extend beyond just the ability to control a light switch with a smartphone, and can make these newly connected devices communicate with each other in a way that makes them more useful.
