There’s a lot going on with video right now. For one, it’s taken over the Internet. Just last Saturday Periscope turned the Pay-Per-View “Fight of the Century” into a free-for-all for anyone with a smart phone. Barely a year ago the Ice Bucket Challenge morphed everyone’s backyard into a set piece for fund raisers dousing themselves in cold water and, in turn, catapulted Facebook past YouTube in video views. Twitter offers video now, as does its offspring Vine, and we probably shouldn’t dismiss Snapchat and Facebook’s Instagram beast. Trying to tackle this trend is where your .VIDEO comes in.Read More

There should be a business version of “stop and smell the roses” that goes something like “pause right now and talk to your customers.” Whenever we do we learn a lot, and Adam is no exception. We were excited enough to hear that a namer had won the Verisign .COM domain contest–well, he’s a semifinalist, but he has a check for five grand on the way–yet we were blown away that this is a guy behind the Singing Dogs because, for reals, he plays the saxophone and his dogs sing along. No, really, check out the video above.
We’re a bit giddy about the dogs, but we should tell you something about the contest. Verisign, the digital deities behind such Internet behemoths as .COM and .NET, challenged domain shoppers to get the best possible .COM domains...Read More
Let’s talk about “Obamacare.” Not the broad, sweeping health insurance program in general, but the word itself. It was originally meant to be derisive, painting the Affordable Care Act as the result of overreaching Executive power. At one point a Democratic Congresswoman objected to its use on Capitol Hill. But then something happened: it gradually took on a whole new life as a universal and sometimes affectionate term for the medical overhaul. The hashtag #ILikeObamacare trended when the bill was challenged in Supreme Court, and President Obama even started using it in his own speeches.
This is a classic example of one side making the best of an attack. They completely redefined it, and now they don’t need to get a .SUCKS.Read More

It’s arguably impossible to scale a product or business without building a community. Building a strong community early on does two great things for your business: (1) It helps you build traction because early users often become the best product evangelists. (2) It position your business for long-term success because your community will want to see you grow and succeed.Read More
