What We Have Here Is A Failure To Innovate: RIP Flip

The Flip cam was a great device - a year and a half ago. I’ve shot some of my most successful client videos on a Flip.  I still use my Flip, in fact it’s what I use to shoot the video posts on this blog. Today Cisco killed their video star, but October of 2009 [...]

Channeling Creative Disruptive Energy

You’re restless. You get frustrated that things don’t go faster. You don’t understand why your company moves so slow. I know because I have these same thoughts. I had these same thoughts even when it was my own company. Creative energy is a great thing. It fuels innovation. In excess it can also be highly [...]

Creativity, Innovation, Leadership and Market Disruption: Lessons From An Underdog

Please bear with me while I uncharacteristically talk about sports. I promise I won’t do it again for a while. My love of Boise State football is perplexing to most people that know me. Sure on paper it makes sense. I’m from Boise and am a two time BSU alumni, receiving both my BA in Communications and [...]

We Need to Completely Rethink How Business Operates Using Social Media

I’ve mentioned the book I’ve been working on. I’ve actually made considerable headway on the weekends (except I can’t come up with a good title to save my life) and thought I’d share my current working summary. I’d love to hear your feedback. I am looking for examples where social technologies have been used by [...]

Innovation and Disruption, What’s Holding You Back?

I have stated before that, while I don’t know the guy and have never met him, Marc Andreessen is probably the entrepreneur of my generation that I most admire. Today I came across a post on TechCrunch where Marc is quoted as saying that Old Media needs to burn the boats. I love this type [...]

Never chase a market leader. Instead start a new race.

Ignore the rumors and stop chasing Apple. Forbes has a good post on innovation. The irony is that the minute you say we want to innovate like Apple, you are no longer innovating. You’re iterating. Innovation Beyond Apple - Forbes.com When it comes to innovation, many executives in the consumer goods industry are chasing Apple. [...]

That’s a Stupid Idea.

Image by Tac Anderson via Flickr When pushing the envelope sometimes you and the people you work with say really stupid things and come up with really stupid ideas. It’s ok to say, “That’s a stupid idea”. When was the last time you said that? When’s the last time you said that and the other [...]

What is America the best in the World at?

Image by Getty Images via Daylife What is America the best in the World at? Innovation? Michael Mandel and my recent cab driver don’t think so. My knee jerk reaction to this article is to think the author is an idiot that doesn’t know what he’s talking about. But I’ve learned over the years that [...]

If Chris Anderson Can’t Reinvent the Publishing World, Who Can?

Wired Struggles to Find Niche in Magazine World - NYTimes.com Even as Chris Anderson makes a boatload of money of his ideas, subsequent books and high dollar speaking [...]

The only thing you should be doing

I originally wrote this post several months ago and it’s taken me this long to remove the excess emotion and get it to a point I thought it was ready to post. I still don’t know if it’s ready but I feel it needs to be said. The only thing you should be doing I [...]
