More and more companies see the urgent need to lean into a data-driven approach to business these days. As ‘big data’ and ‘data-driven’ become more popular key phrases across business negotiations, companies are taking note of how adhering to data can be advantageous. On the other hand, we can see how reading data is getting harder and harder over time. With the amount of information we see as necessary, we collect and derive a ton. But we still can’t make good use of them. We have trouble finding insight from this data, even though it could make a large impact on our business.
Google search makes us lazy. We prefer checking everything on the internet instead of using books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, or asking someone in person. As a result, Google understands our intentions better and better, so we’ve started to type out long, specific queries instead of simple keywords. It is also shifting due to increasing use of voice search features.
Google search has become our adviser in any matter, we search for ‘the best food near me’, ‘the cheapest car’ or even ask for medical diagnoses. If we want to know something, we ask Google — even if it’s the most personal information or involves some important aspect of our lives.

Father’s Day is a bit of a weird holiday. Often derided for its commercial roots, Father’s Day actually began somewhere in the Middle Ages as a Catholic holiday celebrating the role of fatherhood in the family and in the church. Here in the U.S., the holiday didn’t take hold until the early 1900’s as a remembrance for around 360 men that died in a mining accident before fading into relative obscurity. It wasn’t until the 1930’s, in the middle of the Great Depression, that Father’s Day took on a more financial nature, as struggling businesses turned to Father’s Day as an attempt to drum up new business and new revenue.
Image carousels, or sliders, are hot trash. Not like cute raccoons and a talking puppet trash either, we’re talking actual waste. In spite of that, they still pop up all across the Internet, on all your favorite sites, happily scrolling across your screen unnoticed. So, if they’re not effective, why do people keep stuffing them into every web page they can get their hands on?
Getting in touch with customer service isn’t exactly at the top of my to-do list. Most of the time it means there’s some kind of problem, or worse, I can’t figure something out on my own. While I am a die-hard fan of hold music (“soft piano riff – 10 hour version” is my favorite), I’ve got better things to do with my day, like DM Wendy’s and hope they’ll roast me on Twitter. The point is, contacting customer service has never been the most streamlined or ideal process. So what’s the alternative? Sheepishly accepting the wrong order? Asking for help in person? Absolutely not.
