Redefining Viral Marketing inShare2 In September 2008 at Web 2.0 Expo in New York, I shared something that many, to this day, believe to the contrary, “There is no such thing as viral marketing.” The declaration was empathetic in its direction to those marketers who have been on the receiving end of directives instructing them to create and unleash viral content. In parallel, the statement was aimed at those decision makers who assign such projects. Content, no matter how brilliant, creative, abstract, or controversial, is not inherently viral.

A successful Git branching model » nvie.com Note of reflection (March 5, 2020)This model was conceived in 2010, now more than 10 years ago, and not very long after Git itself came into being. In those 10 years, git-flow (the branching model laid out in this article) has become hugely popular in many a software team to the point where people have started treating it like a standard of sorts — but unfortunately also as a dogma or panacea.During those 10 years, Git itself has taken the world by a storm, and the most popular type of software that is being developed with Git is shifting more towards web apps — at least in my filter bubble. Web apps are typically continuously delivered, not rolled back, and you don't have to support multiple versions of the software running in the wild.This is not the class of software that I had in mind when I wrote the blog post 10 years ago.

Musing about sharing and social in business To paraphrase Peter Drucker, the primary purpose of a business is to create customers, people who are able and willing to part with their money to buy goods and services from you. To paraphrase Ronald Coase, the primary purpose of a firm is to reduce business transaction costs, principally the costs of information, search, contracting and enforcement. Words like “sharing” and “social” are often treated as fluffy and ephemeral and Utopian and otherworldly, dismissed as being too pinko-lefty-tree-hugger to make business sense.
Find the Postal Address of any Location on Google Maps With Google Maps Lookup, you can quickly determine the approximate postal address of any location on the world map. To get started, drag the red marker anywhere on the Google Map and the address details (including the latitude and longitude) of that place will display in the pop-up window. Reverse Geocoding with Google Maps Internally, the tool uses the Geocoding features of Google Maps to find the address of a particular point. When you drag the marker, the geographic coordinates of that place are passed to the Geocoding API of Google Maps which then translates the location coordinates into a human-readable physical address. 3D Tutorial — CoreS2 Software Solutions This tutorial is meant as an introduction to programming 3D computer graphics. You will learn how to program a 3D rasterizer (one of many different approaches to implementing 3D computer graphics): this isn't about programming a game or using the latest HTML5 features. It is, however, meant as a way to introduce you to how 3D computer graphics work "under the hood". Essentially this tutorial walks you through what OpenGL and DirectX have implemented in their respective code-base (and drivers), without system or library specific overhead. About & Goals
