I stumbled upon the topic of technology camps and had to delve a little further. First the term 'tech camp' reminded me of some of the sweat shops I've worked in, they could be described as a 'camp', but more I found out there are quite a few tech camps catering to all ages, genders and vocations.
When I think of summer camp, I envision a lake in the mountains where kids roast marsh-mellows, ride canoes, fish and generally relax for a week or two. What's becoming more popular are tech camps for kids ages 6 and up and they're taking classes like programming, audio video engineering, robotics, and app design. I found technology camps not just for kids, but for teachers and executives to tune up with. Instructional design is the way of the new classroom any anyone that's familiar and comfortable with technology is going to be well ahead of the game. (And there's even game development classes.) At the college level there are even more camps to excel or catch up.
Tech camps aren't a new concept, but are growing. Here's and article by Tony Wan from 2013 with a list of popular kids camps. Camps and programs like these may just spark the genius in your child or expand an executive's insight.
Putin, Netanyahu and Obama are flying on a jet back from a UN meeting and their plane crashes. They all die on impact, and since their politicians, of course they all go straight to Hell. When they arrive the Devil greets them and allows them to make one phone call since their world leaders, but they're going to have to pay for their calls.
Netanyahu goes first and talks for about 3 minutes, and the Devil says "That'll be 3 million dollars". Netanyahu says "What can you do" and pays him. Putin makes a call that lasts a little longer, about 7 minutes and the Devil says "That'll be 9 million dollars". Putin says "What can you do" and pays him. Obama talks for over an hour, he's carrying on with Michelle laughing with no concern for the time. When he gets off the phone the Devil says, "You've been on the phone for an hour and thirty five minutes, that'll be 1 dollar and 27 cents". Netanyahu and Putin are both outraged. They ask the Devil, "What gives, why does he get a break?" The Devil answers, "When Obama was elected as the President of the United States the country went to Hell, so it's only a local call".
Grow your company with premium technology domains. Technology is the fasting growing sector and a definitive part of your future growth. Whether your in the technology sector or realize it's where your organization needs a greater footprint, technology won't be a smaller part of anyone's future. Domain names as marketing channels surpass any other media and yield direct sales and instant analytics. Domain names are digital assets.
We are featuring the following domain names as a package or individually.
I keep an eye on web traffic coming into all of my sites and my clients' sites. Since the World Cup in Rio last summer, I have notice a sharp increase in the volume of traffic from South America. I didn't think much of it at first thinking it might have been stemming from the few posts I made rooting for the Netherlands team, but the numbers from Brazil remained high. Last week I had to take closer notice the volume coming in from Sao Paulo exceeded the what I was receiving from the United States.
In the domain industry there's a lot of discussion about Chinese domain names and the size and potential of China's market. I don't qualify as a player in the industry. There are fish, big fish and whales. On the scale of things, I'd be less than one plankton, just a single celled amoeba eeking out a living. As large as China is, I don't see a lot of traffic emanating from them. Very well could be I don't have the domain names that would attract their attention, but even on client domains that might, I don't see anything that significant from them at all.
Traffic from Sao Paulo was closer to 5 percent above the US traffic volume. Drilling through the analytics, best I could determine is strong interest in technology. Did you know Sao Paulo is the world's 4th largest city? I have heard of Sao Paulo, but had no idea they'd have so much going on and new tech growth. Take a fresh look at Sao Paulo, they're already the next big thing.
