1. Excited to look at 6 chapter worth of experiments and new models by C. Zook and J. Allen REPEATABILITY →

    Authors build on the basic premise, complexity is the silent killer of profitable growth.

    Our data shows simplicity, focus and mastering the art of continuous change nearly always trump strategies of radical change or constant reinvention.

    In their second venture as author they bring a concise model, Iteration as the design principle to its "Triumph of Simplicity". The book starts with "Great Repeatable Model" to adaptability , as a basic form to rapidly adapt and change without succumbing to complexity.

    Spread over 6 chapters - 288 pages, is well edited and a very interesting read from Clay Christiansen model of disruption and change.

  2. messaging and content game

    Yesterday’s tweet on Twitter business ethics are relevant to the content strategy principles today. Twitter was a service before it reached the pinnacle with its API. Its seems to have done everything right to get here. What now?

    Simplicity is an ardent design philosophy.

    Rethinking the present strategy with just simplicity spells a lot better in reach and functionality (from a 5+ old service is a poor job).

    Biggest problem of twitter is its simplicity by its reach principle, much like its parent messaging service. Scaling these is the most difficult for twitter today.

    Only two aspects to this game remains. Twitter as a Service and Twitter the Content.

  3. exporting content w/ context

    Concerns regarding Responsive Web Design persuade prudent solutions towards exporting content; platform agnostic approach to mobile context and also its periphery. Seamless experience can be built only with total reach for every context across most platforms.

    The whispering messengers rise evidently in http://blog.comscore.com/2011/06/facebook_linkedin_twitter_tumblr.html . The content today is not in any search engines mercy, its plain relative reach, social. The consumption mode around these divergent technologies is never defined well. The assumption regarding the present media is biased to each others form.
    Instance: The most important approach to the bookmark policy is still prevalent. Recent blog statistics ( http://blog.zite.com/2011/07/zite-integrates-highly-requested.html ) with the aggregation and the likes, assumed on the <title> element, even with the contextual tag and hierarchy.

    • Two basic form of < title > element to keep context at glance “little visible context”.
    Example: <title>{Title}
    {block:PostTitle} - {PostTitle}{/ block:PostTitle}</title>
    Long tag and archive pages are even more susceptible to get lost without its intended context. This peephole concept is widely prevalent in mobile context and listings like ‘saved’ pages in opera mini. Context is an important element, do your best to save the hassles.
