For many people, the term “artificial intelligence” (AI) evokes fictional characters such as HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey, or Rosie the robot maid from The Jetsons, or Marvin the paranoid android from The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Serious, real-life AI has had a spotty history, long on promise and short on results, that makes even the exploding droid in Star Wars: A New Hope look like presidential material. However, advances in the last few years have made practical AI a reality, with real uses that can be applied to your website today.
Don’t let your elderly or non-existent website thwart your business’s progress – there are lots of tools you can use to get it on track. If you’re thinking about using WordPress to launch your new site, you may want to consider the advantages and disadvantages to both the free and premium themes.
You’ve heard it before, but it bears repeating: Visitors hate slow-loading sites. If a page takes more than a few seconds to load, visitors tend to move on to something else. So anything you can do to speed things up will only help you retain visitors.
The best thing about WordPress: It’s an open-source platform, on which anyone with some coding chops can build something dazzlingly beautiful and stunningly useful to fill just about any website requirement.
The internet, we’re told, are supposed to make things easier. Socializing comes to mind, as does research (if you can dig your way through all the “fake news”). Collaboration is another. From project management systems to event coordination, the internet has been as essential as phones to communicate and work with others. So why, then, is working on a single document still an archaic process? For the most part, people still use email to share files, which really is not much different from handing a printed piece of paper to a coworker.
There are certain relationships that take a lot of work (marriage, parent/child, owner/Yorkshire terrier), but your relationship with your web designer shouldn’t be one of them. Here are 10 signs your web designer is less reliable than an untrained Yorkie.
“I’d love to change the world,” runs the old Ten Years After song, “but I don’t know what to do.” Recent events in the U.S. have caused many people to wonder what they should do, and the resulting wave of activism has become one of the great stories of this young year. No matter what side of any issue you subscribe to, there seems to be at least one organization promoting it.
By this time, you’ve probably heard of Bitcoin, and depending on what you’ve heard, you may either be intrigued by the idea or want nothing to do with it. But because increasing numbers of businesses and consumers have started transacting in Bitcoin, it’s worthwhile to give it a second look, and consider how it might fit in your business plan.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but a bad picture is worth only a “huh?” Here’s how to save your website from needless, confusing graphics.
Our minds process images more efficiently than words. We humans have been looking at objects longer than we’ve been reading, and it feels like we’ve been looking at the “I can has cheezeburger?” meme even longer. This being the case, it only makes sense that we incorporate images into our websites.
We get it. You’re a young company with stars in your eyes and a dream in your heart. You’re setting out to change the world, and you’re willing to take on any challenges standing in your way.
To put that in a more concrete way, you might be a startup with a groundbreaking concept, new software platform, or creative endeavor that you think could make a splash in the market. Good for you. It’s not easy to make your way as a startup, and we applaud your efforts.
You Design. We Code.
