What’s Google’s Biggest Fear? Native Search Historically, consumers have used Google for research in every step of the purchasing process, all the way up the sales funnel — starting with lifestyle search terms like [grass stains] to product consideration terms like [Tide reviews] and purchase decision terms like [where to buy Tide online]. In recent years, however, we have observed some interesting changes in customer behavior — one of the main ones being that consumers are starting to favor native search over Google search for lower-funnel terms. This is something retailers can take advantage of during the upcoming holiday shopping season — and, indeed, year-round. Note: These insights are based on my observations of changes in consumer behavior and Google’s actions — I have no inside knowledge that confirms this is actually Google’s biggest fear, but I do believe it’s up there fairly high among its concerns. ;) So what exactly is native search?

Travel 2030: Marketing to a growing and changing world population By 2030, there will be an extra billion people in the world, of which it is forecast 20% will be travelling.

Bureaucracy Bureaucratics is a project consisting of a book (ISBN 978-1-59005-232-7, now sold out) and a traveling exhibition that has so far been shown in museums and galleries in some twenty countries on five continents. The book and the exhibition contain 50 photographs and are the product of an anarchist’s heart, a historian’s mind and an artist’s eye. Bureaucratics is a comparative photographic study of the culture, rituals and symbols of state civil administrations and its servants in eight countries on five continents, selected on the basis of polical, historical and cultural considerations: Bolivia, China, France, India, Liberia, Russia, the United States, and Yemen. In each country, I visited up to hundreds of offices of members of the executive in different services and at different levels.
All Technology is Assistive — Backchannel Six design rules on “disability” In 1941, the US Navy commissioned the husband-and-wife design team of Charles and Ray Eames to design a lightweight splint for wounded soldiers to get them out of the field more safely. Metal splints of that period weren’t secure enough to hold the leg still, causing unnecessary death from gangrene or shock, blood loss, and so on. The Eameses had been working on techniques to mold and bend plywood, and they were able to come up with this splint design — conforming to the body without a lot of extra joints and parts. The wood design became a secure, lightweight, nest-able solution, and they produced more than 150,000 such splints for the Navy.
