Hired a new designer at DevBridge. He tells me that he’s had 3 concussions in a row while snowboarding, and that his mental capacity at that time was reduced to 15%. He’ll fit right in. We do need to get a helmet for this boy.
People at the office are making me say “Make me an offer I can’t refuse”. Have a presentation for an agency at 11am and I sound like Billy Campbell in “The Killing”.

DevBridge.com Takes #1 Spot on Organic Search
Try “Chicago Web Development” in Google. We just got bumped up to #1 result! Google uses multiple servers for result caching, so I’ve heard some people still seeing us in the second spot.

Benefits of Agile Development in Fixed Price...

Building Company Culture
One of the first things I wanted to establish at DevBridge was the elusive and saught after Great Company Culture. That wish was, no doubt, enforced by having recently read a book by Tony Hsie, the founder of Zappos, called Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose. Initially I wrote out key values and formed principles around them, but they did not feel authentic or honest....
Your Website Will Be Outdated in Two Years
When planning a website redesign you should assume that the technology landscape will change dramatically over the next 2 to 3 years (mobile being proof of this right now).

Innovation is Relative, Always Great for Marketing
I’ve had the pleasure to work with several companies lately that are exceptional performers within their industries. Transparency, focus on value provided to clients, and excellence were their defining traits, however web and mobile technologies were lacking from their operational toolset. When someone speaks to me of innovation I always think of the Large Hadron Collider or Quantum...
