    Cities -- the best of which are bastions of transit networks, bike paths, compact apartments and chirpy baristas -- are growing faster than litters of sewer rats, exacerbating their already-high hungers for energy. The trend is so steep that a new analysis projects that urban centers will be burning through three times more energy in the year 2050 than was the case in 2005. But what sounds like a threat could also be viewed as an opportunity. The new study, by five European and American researchers and published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, pinpoints staggering…

    T.S. Eliot wrote, “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” While this may be an inspiring philosophy in many respects, it is a dangerous path for corporations that push the envelope by allowing potential risks to fester unchecked in their data. By ignoring the perils lurking in their information stores until forced to examine their data by discovery or a regulatory investigation, companies miss opportunities to identify and remedy problems before they create liability. The companies that do examine their data before litigation or investigations…

At this time of year, rain, snow and generally miserable conditions are the norm in many parts of the country.

    Richard Dannenberg
    27 Jan 2015 | 8:32 am
    Just over a week ago, we started a conversation about a slight shift in perspective that can produce positive benefits for your printing business. It’s a not so profound change in mindset that moves from project thinking to process thinking. In Part One of this short series, Process Thinking and Marketing, we talked about how the shift from a checklist approach to an understanding of marketing as a continual process can improve the effectiveness of your efforts. Today, the focus shifts from marketing to sales, and we’ll see how a similar perceptual shift can let you apply lessons learned…

    This isn’t going to be one of those profound articles that gives you great aspirations for the new life you’re going to live from this moment on. Nope. But for some of you, it might be important. Today, I’m writing about just a minor change in mindset, a slight alteration to the model that can help keep the machine running and move your printing business forward. Here it is: It’s Process, not Project. Semantics, you might say. Perhaps, but this simple perceptual shift can impact the way your business communicates in a couple of important ways: It can change the way you market your own…

Matthew Parker and Deborah Corn have been tackling thorny print sales and marketing problems from both sides of the pond for the last month or so and I’ve been following the correspondence with great interest and some amusement. About a week ago, the duo took on the question of how print companies might get more work from their customers (from a print buyer’s perspective).

    I talked with a businessman a couple of weeks ago who was riding a unicycle. The business owner didn’t understand the need for marketing. “We have a sales force. We don’t need to market,” was the particular statement that is still ringing in my ears. He runs a locally-focused printing operation that is struggling to come up with new customers. Like many in the printing industry, he’s seen volumes decrease in the past few years as products that were once mainstays have vanished and content has gone online. His average revenue per customer has declined, so the…

    In the world of business, millions of pages are being printed every day. The costs associated with these printing tasks are quite enormous. Many businesses across the globe have realized that they are spending a lot of money on printing services. For instance, if you print up to 500 sheets of paper, you could actually be spending £1800 on an annual basis on printing alone. One thing that you need to appreciate is that printing is a substantial business expense in the modern day. Ultimately, you have control over it and can therefore decide if you want to cut down on costs or not. If you are…

    Buying new ink printer cartridges can be quite expensive, therefore it’s advisable to use the one that you have so no ink is left in at all.

    When you browse the internet pages searching for information about 3D printing, there will be a lot to deal with. From rumours to speculations and falsified facts, the internet rage is definitely focused on this technology. While the hype surrounding 3D printing concept is within imagination, a lot of expectations and promising capabilities are quite far-fetched. Many people already believe this technology will allow us to print our own cloths and utensils at home which is profoundly an abstract idea. 3D printing allows production of certain components and was originally developed for…

    The member of the UK Parliament Sir Alan Duncan has begged Parliament to bring in a bill banning the reams of legal blurb at the bottom of emails in order to save precious Whitehall ink when, printing out one-line emails. "We have all been there. A short email comes in from a friend, colleague or company and we hit print. Then we look in horror as page after page spews out," he told fellow members of parliament. "The email itself is not the end," he continued before vainly trying to invoke Churchill: "It is often not even the beginning of the end – merely the end of the beginning." Duncan's…

    What’s the best Super Bowl ad of all time? The worst? Though the answer might be subjective, it’s fair to say many of us tend to agree which Super Bowl commercials take top honors – and are bottom-dwellers – as we approach Super Bowl XLIX. If we were privy to the results of each Super Bowl commercial, picking the winners and losers would be easy, at least from a marketing standpoint: we’d know which ads helped companies gain new customers and increased sales, and which ads put their backers on the brink of bankruptcy (at $4 million per 30-second spot, it would be easy to do).
