Cash is great and is one of the greatest advancements in allowing humans to trade with one another, but I wanted to take you through a slightly different view when it comes to using it to convert your customers.
All good innovations and advancements start with a “what if?”
What if we could fly? What if we could walk on the moon? What if we could have a repository for the worlds knowledge?
The GDPR applies to ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’. The definitions are broadly the same as under the DPA – ie the controller says how and why personal data is processed and the processor acts on the controller’s behalf. If you are currently subject to the DPA, it is likely that you will also be subject to the GDPR.
This post sets out to explain how you can run tests and ensure they are statistically relevant and what to do when your volume of data is too low to prove significance.
The revolutionary new life hack to potentially increase life span
The key to improvement whether its for personal development or making better products is: get negative feedback.
It stands to reason that you can’t improve what you don’t know you are bad at. The same goes for when you are making product decisions. You need your users or customers to tell you what they DON’T like.
“Magic tricks work because humans have a hardwired process of attention and awareness that is hackable”. For those of you who have been watching Amazon’s Mr Robot we all know humans are the most easily fallible to a hack attack.
In years gone by you may have started on the web with a portal, remember Yahoo anyone?
Then came the search engine, which Google dominated and now depending on your mood and what you are looking for you may start your web journey with any one of the following:

Exit intent technology or exit technology is like the silent ninja of conversion optimization and reducing abandoned carts. You know when you move your mouse off the page towards the navigation bar and a “pop up” or “light box” appears with a message asking for your email address or offering you a discount/reward/free shipping – that is exit intent technology in action.
Daniel Pink is the master of motivation and helping us humans understand why we do what we do.

Netlogo and the God complex
I love Netlogo, ever since I discovered it a few years ago I keep coming back to it just to play around with what’s possible. Netlogo is a programming environment for building simulations. It allows you to create artificial worlds consisting of patches and turtles. You can think of these as simulated tiles on the ground and little people, respectively. You can then easily program the turtles to move around and/or interact with each other and the patches they come in contact with. The worlds you can build are limited only by your imagination and your ability to express the rules that you want in Netlogo code.
