Here’s to 2010 being a banner year for all of us, no matter what we call it.

+ Ecommerce and Mobile Commerce in 2010
Monday, December 28th, 2009

ComScore released data comparing ecommerce spending for 2009 with 20008 and it’s a bright spot:Spending rose about 4% overall. (Though I’ve also seen the data quoted as a 3.5% increase after accounting for this year’s extra shopping day.)

+ Security, Your Phone and Why Apple May Be Crying on Microsoft’s Shoulder
Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Is Apple really that good at security? We’re about to find out.

I generally try to write on topics of direct interest to our audience – business owners and non-profits trying to figure out how to use the Web to build their businesses. This post is a bit of a departure, but it’s fascinating and likely to affect many or all of us in the coming decades. […]

+ Is Google Analytics Illegal?
Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

It is in Germany, at least according to a handful of German government officials with jurisdiction over data security. I don’t read German and the translations I’ve seen have been pretty poor, but the regulators seem to mistake aggregate data for personal data, among other things so it’s hard to imagine this going too far […]

+ Mobile Commerce
Friday, December 4th, 2009

Although it’s a bit early to make a blanket recommendation in favor of mobile-specific commerce for every online retailer, mobile selling – with the unfortunate moniker “m-commerce” – has most definitely arrived. If you’re upgrading an existing ecommerce platform or creating a new ecommerce strategy, mobile should be a part of the mix. Particularly if […]

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Here’s a great interview on Guy Kawasaki’s AmEx Open Blog with social media guru, Dan Zarrella.
