Dick Tracy & the future of the Internet



When I was a boy I loved Saturday morning cartoon’s. You know the likes of The super friends, Shazam, Hong Kong Phooey. Sunday morning I loved to spend reading the comic strips from the paper, most importantly Dick Tracy. 

Recently, I was at the bank doing what you normally do at a bank, and the teller a young barley out of high school girl was taking my transaction. I noticed she had on a white I-phone watch. Being the tech geek that I am I ask her how she like the watch.

“I love it!” The teller exclaimed. “I don’t know what I would do without it anymore.”

“Can you make calls? How do you talk on it?” I ask with curiosity. I never seen one live before.

The teller lifted her wrist just below her chin and stated; “you just talk.”

“Wow! That’s like Dick Tracy, coming true.” I stated.

The teller looked at me quizzically, and ask… “Who I s Dick Tracy?”

After I explained who Dick Tracy, was a comic strip detective series created back in the 1930’s who happened to have a wrist watch that was a TV and walkie talkie, just like the i-phone watch, with the exception of the walkie talkie.

 It got to thinking about how far we have come technology wise, in such a short time. The I-phone is just one of the future technologies among thousands, that were in the minds of early sci-fi writers.
  In a hundred years, humans may just go from the Jetson’s lifestyle to Star Trek. Instead of planes, trains and automobiles, you’ll just have your atoms scrambled and beamed to far off lands or maybe even new worlds.

For content curation and distribution today, there is only two ways you can get your blog posts in the hands of your network.

Email and/or RSS. Which should you use? 

With all seriousness you need Both. Some may not want to give you their email address and would rather just get notifications on their desktop or smart phones. Then there are those that use their email program all the time and don’t mind timely messages and updates. 
Cater to both, and watch your traffic stats skyrocket faster than a roman candle on the fourth of July.

Every blogger and marketer knows about email marketing and the value of the potential in the inbox. Do you know about RSS?

Symantec publishing grid

Many of bloggers know how to burn a feed. I learned about RSS my first year of blogging. Back then you burned the feed and you could for a price have your feed aggregated into the top 55 blog directories.  

Today, it is a bit different. That is why you need to check out this video today because the price is going to increase. This product isn’t just for blogging either, but video sites, social media. It gets into tactics I have never seen before yet pretty easy to accomplish. It uncovers the core layers of the Symantec publishing grid.


I wonder if the creator of Dick Tracy ever thought of a world wide web?


You know, it's legal for me to take you down to the station and sweat it out of you under the lights. Dick Tracy.
