  • Why it’s better to be in Beta

    Why it’s better to be in Beta

    What do Steve Jobs and notorious architect Frank Gehry have in common? Would you believe us if we told you it was failure? Jobs was fired from the company he founded by the age of thirty and did not achieve his true creative potential until much later in life. Likewise, Gehry did not reach architectural notoriety until he was in his sixties. It would seem that time and iteration (and failing) play such important roles in the production of a genius.

    Are we evolving at such a high rate of change that generational schemata become irrelevant?

    Anne M. Schüller and Alex T. Steffen just released their book “Fit for die Next Economy: Sustainable with the Digital Natives”, which is currently only available in German, but got my whole attention, since it made me understand the so-called “digital natives” a bit  better.

    The basics for successful email marketing

    The newsletter is still the marketing tool with the best cost-benefit factor. No wonder then that email marketing remains one of the most popular digital marketing methods.

    Boon or bane: Sharing contextual data via the Internet of Things

    At the moment, IoT still focuses mainly on consumer-oriented products such as smartwatches and self-driving cars. In the long term, however, business-to-business applications, such as in Industry 4.0 or digitized logistics, will offer even greater potential.

  • Why IoT and Industry 4.0 need professional marketing

    Why IoT and Industry 4.0 need professional marketing

    So far, the Internet has primarily networked people, but with the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, terms which are currently on everyone's lips, we are by now on the threshold of total networking, where information can be exchanged between people and intelligent things (machines, products, etc.) for any purpose. The fact is that the fourth industrial revolution will certainly not be a self-runner, rather needs establishment in the market, the creation of new fields of application, as well as professional marketing and communication. We all know that only clear explanations and presentations of complex solutions pave the way for success, so obviously there is still a lot to be done.

  • It’s never too late to NOT grow up

    It’s never too late to NOT grow up

    Ever since our drawings of stick figures were hung up on the fridge at home, we’ve been telling the world what we want to be when we grow up. Even our dress-up toys (the little plastic stethoscope for a birthday present; fireman’s hat; the police badge) subtly beg the question: “What will you be when you grow up?” Yet, considering that many children at primary school today will end up in jobs that don’t even exist yet, the idea of ‘what I want to be when I grow up’ is more confusing than ever before.
