Josh Berkus | Scale Fail

With a good deal of sarcasm, Josh Berkus presents a sardonic critique about scaling tools that are trendy rather than reliable. Josh Berkus, CEO of PostgreSQL, gives a facetious list of do's and don'ts for database creation and application design that, while often popular today, are not stable techniques. In the same cynical tone of this short presentation, Berkus sarcastically places sexiness at the top of the list of qualities to maintain when scaling website elements. http://itc.conversationsnetwork.org/shows/detail4904.html

SXSW: Zombies Must Eat: How Genre Communities Make Money

SXSW 2011 presentation by KW Low of Dread Central and Skot Leach of Lost Zombies. Genre communities particularly the horror-themed ones are increasing seen by the entertainment industry as an important audience segment to market to. The success of 2009's Paranormal Activity can be attributed to this loyal and vocal community that used social media tools to share their passions with everyone else. Because of this additional marketing focus by the entertainment industry, there are even more opportunities now for horror genre community sites to get a piece of the marketing dollars. But then, which comes first, the community or the revenue? The panelists will describe how their companies found their target audience and what they did to generate revenue while keeping true to their audience, hence maintaining their loyalty. While the panelist will be talking from their experiences in the horror genre, the same methods can replicated to foster loyal communities in other genres and to make money there too. http://schedule.sxsw.com/events/event_IAP7221

Trends - the retail shop of the future

The retail world is undergoing a revolution with the rise of online shopping websites. How does a shop -- with bricks and mortar -- transform its purpose for the 21st century shopper? How do the buyers -- people who buy the clothes for us to shop -- look ahead and anticipate this change; and the experience of shopping in a shop, rather than online. http://www.abc.net.au/rn/bydesign/
