If Our Gadgets Could Measure Our Emotions

If Our Gadgets Could Measure Our Emotions | Washington, DC | Scoop.it
Our digital devices would be more efficient if they could respond when we are frustrated, bored or too busy to be interrupted. But they would also be intrusive in ways we can’t yet imagine.

LinkedIn Profile Service: Professional LinkedIn Profile Writers

LinkedIn Profile Service: Professional LinkedIn Profile Writers | Washington, DC | Scoop.it
LinkedIn Profile Service writers create professional personal profiles and company pages noticed by job recruiters. Examples of best LinkedIn profiles.
Carla Deter's insight:

For some time I've been a frequent user of ‪#‎linkedin‬. During this time I've taken a great fondness (no, seriously love) for the platform. Every day is new learning of all the hidden strategies that are available. The layers of search and filter ability goes deep and being certain your profile will be found is key! A well developed LinkedIn profile can do many things: solidify the branding of YOU, bring buyers to you and your products/service, expose a company in a well formatted, key word rich manner that gets your product or service to the top of search results. People are using the search abilities every second of every day and having your profile work for you is the super important part.
I love developing individual and company profiles from a multitude of industries. The most rewarding experience is when someone has decided on a job change and they realize their online LinkedIn presence is now very important! The preparation of the profile along with a well written resume compliments and is imperative to job hunters moreso now than ever.

Millennials Say Life Is Easier With Technology, But Makes Us Less Human

Millennials Say Life Is Easier With Technology, But Makes Us Less Human | Washington, DC | Scoop.it

A new study has found young adults, especially millennials who grew up with smartphones, iPads and other digital gizmos and gadgets, are increasingly tech savvy; but many who fall into this category also think technology is making people less human in the process.

 

The study was commissioned by Intel Corporation and conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, and it looked at global attitudes toward technology innovation challenges and existing perceptions. The research found millennials (aged 18 to 24) are the least enthusiastic about technology today but yet are actually optimistic for future technology, especially those that could deliver a more personalized experience.

 

In other words, millennials may be taking much of the technology they grew up with for granted, but are still somewhat excited by tomorrow’s advances.

 

The “Intel Innovation Barometer” further revealed the millennials globally show a stark contrast to their reputation as digital natives who can’t get enough of the high-tech stuff in their lives. In fact, the study noted a majority of millennials even agree that technology makes people less human.

Website Design: 100 Funniest 404 Pages | Washington, DC | Scoop.it

Never underestimate the power of HUMOR or its application. Here are 100 funny 404 pages, the pages users get when something has gone wrong. The ability to turn a page that is FRUSTRATING into a funny gambit is the difference between a site that makes a few bucks and one that is worth millions.

Design for engagement means thinking about the customer at all times. Thinking about the customer means BEING the customer and not the Master Blaster Controler. Have fun and design fun in especially where its a surprise and you WIN.
