We don’t need a time machine… to tell the future

2017-09-19T12:19:19+00:00

“All this has happened before, and all of it will happen again.” I love that line from the sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica because it’s so applicable to the world we live. When you look at history, you can see how things repeat. You can look for the signals of how things will change.  You can [...]

2017-09-19T12:19:19+00:00

By MATT SCHULER, Digital Architect, Marx Layne Do you have a smartphone? Does it have GPS enabled?  There’s been a dustup recently with the tracking that occurs on these devices.  Both Apple and Google were called before a U.S. Senate subcommittee to detail their respective mobile privacy policies.

We don’t need a time machine… to stay relevant.

2017-09-19T12:19:19+00:00

By MATT SCHULER, Digital Architect, Marx Layne At Future Midwest, Jason Schmitt’s topic was one that had me most perplexed.  “What New Technology Firms Can Learn from Detroit Rock and Roll.” “It is an unusual juxtaposition,” Schmitt writes on his blog. “I'll give you that. But yes, I am in fact having the gumption to [...]

Back to the Future Midwest – We don’t need a time machine

2017-09-19T12:19:19+00:00

By MATT SCHULER, Digital Architect, Marx Layne One of my favorite movie trilogies of all time is the “Back to the Future” series. Sure there are others out there that may have more drama, or more laughs, but there’s something special about Marty McFly and Doctor Emmett Brown that delights me. I love the thought [...]

2017-09-19T12:19:20+00:00

By MATT SCHULER, Digital Architect, Marx Layne “Social Media has created a human filter for quality content,” writes Vadim Lavrusik for Mashable. It’s the lede of his article on “Why Social Media Reinvigorates the Market for Quality Journalism.” I’d like to take the premise a step further, because social media really reinvigorates the market for [...]

Outsourcing Your Social Media Efforts Can Be Beneficial

2017-09-19T12:19:20+00:00

By MATT SCHULER, Digital Architect, Marx Layne If you’re running your own business, you’re living a busy life. 40-hour workweeks are a starting point, and more likely you’re pouring in 60+ hours. This doesn’t bother most entrepreneurs though, because their business is their passion.  They want to see a grand idea through to its end. [...]
