Facebook Group vs Fan Pages for your 2013 action organization.

Fri, 22 Mar 2013 20:03:06 +0000

There is lots of remaining confusion about what is the best Facebook strategy to use for your organization. I was recently asked by a great conservative Texan politcal movement what our strategy should be here.

More Vindication on Mobile Trends

Mon, 12 Sep 2011 17:20:18 +0000

Like I have said for the last 3+ years, mobile functionality’s future is in mobile web, not in native app installs. HTML5 makes sense here of course. You still need to consider browser compatibility however, which too many people skip right over. Give me a ring today and we can discuss how to make your next iPad/Iphone/Android [...]

The mobile web… enough to make Facebook scratch and claw.

Fri, 17 Jun 2011 23:30:22 +0000

Back in 2009, I wrote an article discussing the future of the mobile web which was simply one of many similar screeds that I had penned on the Fourth Speaker. Ok, enough with the self- congratulating on the subject. I know you will soon be asking us to optimize your site for mobile, or you [...]

JanRain.. the social doorway for better business

Sun, 22 May 2011 17:13:26 +0000

Over the last 6 months, I have created a JanRain social login tool for two of my biggest clients, even extending the tool to the mobile version of Simple Foodie. The results were good, and I have been recommending it since to any client that has a registration requirement. Over the last few weeks however, [...]

Race to the bottom? Who wants to win that?

Wed, 27 Apr 2011 16:41:26 +0000

Everyday we are challenged with presentation decisions. Do we stay cheap and seek admiration for our frugality and meager margins in a tough economy, or do we invest in standing out to bring superior value for our customers? While these decisions need not be zero-sum equations, our world-view regarding how we run the race in [...]

Advanced Wordpress Development

Sat, 26 Mar 2011 22:29:19 +0000

I have had a few inquiries lately on our experience with Wordpress. It is one of those things that we are called on to deal with extensively and creatively, but these kinds of projects rarely make it to our portfolio page. For Wordpress integration, some of the more amazing things we have done in the last [...]

Multi-screen optimization

Tue, 22 Mar 2011 21:52:23 +0000

New update here is that we just recently redid the CGIPro site to optimize it for a very wide range of browsers based on the viewport width. Take a look at the rest of the site (the blog still has a few tweaks outstanding) in a pinched width and you will see the style automatically adjust [...]

Got Ajax problems with IE? maybe it is your Apache settings!

Fri, 03 Dec 2010 20:23:03 +0000

Yesterday I spent way too much time trying to chase down a problem for a new web project re-doing All my cool state/county selection prototype ajax stuff was working great on my test server in all browsers, and fine on my live server as well, until my client tried it on the live server [...]

More Smartphones than PC’s in 2 years? Is your website ready?

Tue, 10 Nov 2009 18:46:45 +0000

Bolstered by an article showing that 400 million smartphones will be shipped and active in 2011, the smart money is starting to drift in the right direction of building sites to succeed on the mobile web. The rapidly increasing number of web-enabled smartphones makes them an attractive alternative to PCs. Consumers are proving to be more [...]

Google Wave to transform our work

Wed, 30 Sep 2009 10:25:54 +0000

I am usually just a safe little tad behind the bleeding edge of advocating new site tools to our clients, so I can make sure the tools works for their business goals instead of just being another shiny object to clutter up their site. Google Wave is different. I just watched the 1 hour 20 [...]

SimpleFoodie iphone frame in for the web

Sun, 12 Jul 2009 21:00:30 +0000

Hello. This is a rough representation of what our iphone web app for SimpleFoodie looks like. I wish there were more established ways for iPhone apps to demo on the general web, but this method works great to demonstrate a mobile web app, provided you are not on IE. If you are using Safari or [...]

Updating the Old Portfolio, but going Local again

Wed, 08 Jul 2009 01:57:30 +0000

This is one of those things that I always enjoyed delegating, but always knew it was up to me to really dial in the messaging for. So time has indeed gone by since the last update, and every one of our clients has an updated story on their website. I am personally very honored to [...]

Fri, 13 Feb 2009 20:43:40 +0000

In case you haven’t already heard, there is a new recession in town. Just kidding. Well, what you probably haven’t heard is that until recently, CGI has been protected from the storm by a client with a huge language learning project called Echolearn. Unfortunately, for the time being, we have had to suspend that project [...]

Mobile Web Is Coming Front & Center

Tue, 13 Jan 2009 23:16:23 +0000

Like most people, the beginning of the year makes me think about my future and my role as a developer in the online world. I am imaging the world of the desktop fading, with everything going mobile. The days of waiting to get home to check your email are at an end - [...]
