READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE ON DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS You’ve heard it time and time again (and, you’re going to continue hearing it) … “We’re all different. But, we’re all predictably different.” As true as this statement is to our walking life, why would it be any different when it comes to social media? We’re on social media, because everyone else is. But, not all of us are on there to communicate. While Grandma is busy giving “love” to all of her grandchildren, others are networking. Some are trying out new recipes, and others are busy looking at stats. So, who’s doing what and why from a personality point-of-view? Let’s take a closer look. The Dominant Style “Ds” don’t always speak on social media as they use it mostly to accomplish a goal or find information quickly. When they speak, however, they’re most passionate about the subject. They’re jumping on our posts, soliciting unwanted advice or showing why they are most qualified to speak on a specific subject. “Ds” usually will share something related to business, politics, the sporting world — or maybe even religion. They’re telling us about their accomplishments or the lives of those they admire. Yet, they’re still […]

AccuWeatherIQ — The Randall Pearson of brands and advertisers

Weather Trader, Stock Market, Global Stocks, Weather, Accuweather, Predictions 2021, Randall Peterson, Sterling K Brown, This is Us

PUBLISHED TO MEDIUM The average American had never heard of a weather trader or how the weather could play a major factor in the Global Economy — and then, we did. In fact, almost eight-million viewers quickly learned what it meant to be a weather trader, as we became more familiar with one Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown), on NBC’s hit television series, This Is Us. We caught a glimpse at just how important weather economics were to both trade and the stock market, as Randall pounded away at the keys, making his predictions, and even burning himself out in the process. Investors may have found new ways to capitalize on this practice, as business owners became hip as to how the weather could be used to forecast products would sell, according to last minutes changes in the weather or climate, and its impact on the economy, overall. If you were paying close enough attention, those charts and graphs were painful to look at — and, maybe even to understand. But, Randall did so quite diligently, meeting his deadline, and the rest became history from there on out. New scalability with little-to-no effort at all Thankfully for you, AccuWeather, one […]

In a world where we thrive off of live experiences, it’s a wonder that most of us are still living in stereo. Sure, we attend live events. We might even know the soft spot at the movie theatre. But, on a daily basis, we are literally just getting by on “right, left, center” technologies, and so far — no one has done anything about it! Today, we watch movies in surround sound. We play games using our headsets. We live the virtual experience, but our audio keeps us grounded. The good news is… that’s all about to change — and, it’s thanks to Kickstarter, wearable technologies and a team of lifelong audiophiles. Meet Woojer. Woojer, a company based in Tel Aviv, has been dedicated to bringing biotechnologies to the world of consumer audio design. Their mission is to introduce consumers to immersive experiences and allow them to feel the sound just as they would in real-time. They do this by tapping into the acoustics and frequencies that we feel, but naturally, we cannot hear. Founded in 2008, Woojer has been working diligently to study, design and perfect those technologies in which are soon to become acknowledged as a standard for […]

Augmented Reality | Bringing interactive reading & learning tools to young explorers in real-time

Wonderscope, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, IoT, Connected Devices, Storytelling, Kids, Children, Innovation, Technology, Technology News,

PUBLISHED ON MEDIUM If you grew up watching Nick Jr., you already know how much of an impact interactive television shows, such as Blue’s Clues, can have on a young mind. Our children feel as if the characters on the show are actually their friends, and they quickly embrace the second-person experience, as a means for early-learning education. They become like sponges — easily engaged and encouraged by conversation. Intrigued by curiosity, they thirst for exploration. And while they quickly absorb the material and storylines presented before them, there is a huge divide between reality and storytelling that continues to leave a void out in the open. Augmented reality is changing all of that, allowing our children to thrive at levels we have never seen before. Our children learn in different ways, and yet reading is a major part of who we become as students, educators, and professionals in our fields. We learn visually, we learn through auditorial experiences and we learn through pure immersion, completely saturated in the overall experience. One company making a difference. Within, a Los Angeles-based tech company, has been taking advantage of this ideal, creating exciting new platforms and highly interactive experiences in augmented, mixed […]

PUBLISHED ON MEDIUM According to recent market research by MarketsandMarkets, IoT Connectivity Markets are set to reach more than $8.9B by the year 2024. Currently valued at an estimated $3.8B in 2019, the company has forecasted an 18.7% compound rate of annual growth (CAGR) with major factors set to increase the demand for connected devices over time. North American markets will take the reins, accounting for a majority of growth through 2024. North America is said to account for the largest market size during the forecasted period of growth. This comes, as the United States continues to be the leader in innovation and digital transformation, placing a high priority on large-scale implementation and enterprise services. Artificial Intelligence (AT) and cloud computing are additional factors, attributing such growth, as they are intimately powered by “The Internet of Things.” The demand for wireless sensor networks, necessary in creating smart infrastructure, has so-far been a major player in the demand for low-power, wide-area (LPWA) networks in IoT applications. People like to control things in their homes. Even more so, they like controlling things at home, while not at home, and find convenience in doing so through the fast-action swipe of their smart phones. […]

Show of Hands: Have You Heard of Google Classrooms?

Digital Pivot, Distance LEarning, Education, Google, Alphabet, FAANG, Google Classrooms, Remote Lectures, Technology, Techology News, Wimba,

Previously Published to TalentZoo’s Digital Pivot Of course, Google created an app for teachers. Who would have “thunk” it? Of all the great things Google has given us to explore, many of us were unaware that Google even had a mobile app for educators, allowing them to “create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently and easily communicate with their classes,” as Google so seamlessly puts it. For some of us, Google Classroom has been invisible, although it was actually launched last year. Teachers use Google Classrooms to host live discussions and classroom sessions. Classroom calendars remind students of important events and due dates. Google Documents and Forms are highly integratable, allowing assignments to be created and turned in directly through Google, eliminating the need for printing, or even a printer terminal, as Google Classroom is available only on mobile. Google has been listening to audiences and gaining feedback for evolving the Google Classroom’s abilities and third-party integrations. In fact, it wasn’t until yesterday, September 16, 2015, that many of us first heard of Google Classroom. Yesterday, Nearpod announced its official integration with Google Classroom. Until recently, it appears Google Classroom was designed more as a forum-based classroom. If the […]

Previously Published to Talent Zoo’s Digital Pivot What if everything you needed to know about a job site literally appeared right in front of you? Ask yourself this question: How much time would you save, daily, by having information appear in the “blink of an eye?” Last week, MA Labs announced a beta release for Google Goggles that will change the face of Warehousing, Inventory Audience, and Shipping…forever. A disruptive technology and one that will allow us to continue being hands-free in our day-to-day routines, MA Labs has announced the release of an open-source project, Maintenance Assistant — a way to “walk through [the] factory, scan equipment and instantly check on the status of equipment — including current meter readings, outstanding work orders and scheduled maintenance items.” This is all done through the standard commands of voice commands to Google Glass. This software platform also allows employees to have constant access to this information, as if they were in front of a desk and not in the field. That means increasing productivity and providing more accuracy in the supply chain with the end result of happy customers and clientele. This also means that all information will be centrally stored in a cloud […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO EXAMINER It’s been a week since the release of WebDAM’s latest features to their brand management solution, Brand Connect. On Tuesday, May 3, Examiner sat down with Jody Vandergriff, Co-Founder and CEO of WebDAM, to find out more about this game-changing platform and how it not only affects marketing teams and designers, but how it’s creating impact for the enterprise with individual contributors all over the globe! As globalization takes over the business world, the standard multinational organization is finding itself competing with scalable business structures that have centralized headquarters and thousands of work-at-home contributors. Some of these companies don’t even have a central headquarter location. The multinational now has to work in double time, making sure that overheads are covered in each location, while innovating to protect their position in the marketplace and keeping with consistency across the board. But, guess what? WebDAM, a Shutterstock company, has now created a solution that just may put them at greater odds against one another. If you remember, WebDAM released a Fifty Shades of Branding SlideShare last year to introduce their Brand Connect platform. We even covered it here. Since its release, WebDAM has been working extra hard to […]

PREVIOUSLY POSTED TO THE EXAMINER With traditional media being replaced by digital streams, major agencies are starting to wonder if their advertising dollars are being put to good use. At a time where we pre-record our shows, only to fast forward through the commercials – or when we wait for them to show on-demand – we prefer short 15-20 second videos overdrawn out commercials that we can’t click to skip after so many seconds. Because digital television allows agencies to redirect new customers to a call of action, digital television should be an obvious priority within advertising efforts. We are relaxing after a long day of work and school. Show us. Don’t make us do more work! On the April 1, Technavio highlighted three key trends in market growth: Data and Audience-Driven TV Advertising Popularity of Programmatic Advertising Real-Time Bidding These trends are known as addressable TV advertising. According to Soumya Mutsuddi, a lead analyst for Technavio, “Addressable TV advertising is gaining immense popularity in the US. It is helping advertisers reach out to their target audiences and generating great results in terms of ROI. Within a common program or navigation screen, this technique is capable of serving different ads […]

It’s 2016, and We Still Lack Preference for Virtual Meetings. Here’s Why.

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TMC NET’S REAL TIME COMMUNICATIONS With the mobile workforce revolutionizing businesses, both small and large, it’s becoming more conventional to meet our clients and business partners for a quick chat over the wire. While it’s pretty cool to think back to where we were just ten years ago, we’re still not as far as we would think. In fact, GFK, a firm dedicated to market research in Technology, reveals that only a quarter of U.S. consumers are regularly engaging in digital interaction and consider it just as good as being face-to-face. Overseas consumers reflect similar sentiments. Globally, women are more apt to welcoming virtual interactions than men. In the United States, it’s the men, who more strongly agree with the fact that meeting face to face is “just as good.” While it is true that nothing compares to human interaction, one can argue that with collaborative tools, productivity is actually maximized through evolved technologies and real-time communications. One could also argue that corporate dollars are being saved, where they previously splurged on luxurious business trips, both cross-country and cross continental. Not so surprisingly, only 20-30 percent of all consumers completely disagree. This leaves a majority of overall […]
