Internet week – NEW YORK CITY

#IWNY - [MAY14-21]

So, I've been lucky enough to have been asked (umm, obviously accepted) to go to New York City for 2012 Internet Week..! Internet week I'm told, (and according to my research) is everything digital marketing and more on steroids!

Very very excited to be in the mix and more importantly it'sactually quite more exciting to be working for a company that's not only hungryto learn what new tools, techniques and best practices are floating around theworld, but are willing to allow me to go on a quest to find out!

Seriously looking forward to bringing back some big gems; not only for my employer, but for you! I mean, how often do you get to go to the city that is the epicentre of well...everything; with the objective to look beyond the holiday goggles and sponge it all up.

Event I’m MOST looking forward to:
The 7th Annual Conversational Marketing Summit
Working for a product based B2B, still reliant on print, this might be what the doctor ordered, though with an additional price tag of over $1K, it better deliver!

Event I’m LEAST looking forward to:
SEO for Bloggers
It starts at 6AM…that’s all.

Stay tuned people!

So, if MOBILE was hosting a party, would you be invited?

To qualify for this party all you have to do is this:

At you company, simply think mobile first! By doing this, you won't only get an invite; mobile will be your best friend! So come along - there's room for all.

Not only is our mobile experience getting better and more engaging; our lives are getting better and more engaging.

Mobile makes us international Being a global citizen doesn't only mean our business' gets more exposure, but our personal lives do to! Last night I skyped a family member in Europe who was celebrating her birthday just before I headed out to dinner. Returning back home I jumped on Facebook and saw a few pics from the birthday lunch with all the family. I have never been so close to family overseas, especially considering , we only see each other every few years.

It's no different in business really, though there is still a slight preference for services to be delivered locally, when dealing with products, it's fair game wherever you are. …

It's Been a While, Let Me Explain...

So, I suddenly wake up and realise. I missed most of 2015. Not to mention all of 2016 and 17.

My last post (here at least), was mid-2015... In technological terms, that's about 3 decades. Like many things, life got in the way, yadda, yadda, yadda, now here we are about to sign off on 2017.

Here are some of the events I missed, during that time:

SpaceX lands the Falcon 9 rocket - the first reusable rocketScientists discover a previously unknown species of early human in South Africa known as Homo naledi Princess Charlotte of Cambridge is born while B.B.

Consciousness Vs Intelligence - The Future of Work

"As long as consciousness and intelligence go hand in hand, which is more important, will always be a popular discussion point for philosophers. With the pace that technology at today, it's quickly becoming an urgent political and economic issue." - Yuval Noah Harari, Author. 
After watching a robust panel discussion about the future of work last week, it got me thinking...
Is there enough of a debate, of the ethical impact of technology?
We are not only developing intelligence but a form of intelligence that is no longer reliant on consciousness. Whether it's playing games or driving cars, a computer via machine learning can now evaluate patterns better than we can. This has the potential to make us and our usefulness, about as redundant as the horse and carriage.
If intelligence is compulsory, is consciousness nonessential...?
The fact is, companies all over the world are already valuing intelligence more highly than consciousness. Is it really that simple though? Let&#…
