When I first moved to Atlanta, I had the perfect setup. I lived right off the BeltLine, so I could walk to Ponce City Market, Piedmont Park or Krog Street Market. My commute was an easy 25 minutes through the beautiful cityscape of Midtown and Georgia Tech campus. I was living the ATLien dream life.
Picture this: late seventies. People actually go to the store to buy things, and yacht rock is at its unironic prime. To the average person, the word “computer” conjures mammoth machines that fill up an entire room, just to spit out long scrolls of calculations. That is, unless you were a user.
In 2018, GDPR shook things up for businesses around the globe. But in 2020, stronger data privacy starts right here in the USA.
Last year, California signed restrictive data privacy legislation that will transform commerce as we know it. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will require more transparency from businesses in the kinds of data they collect on their consumers — and how they choose to use it.
This change is prompted by the Facebook data breach that led to the compromise of a whopping 87 million users’ personal information. Though the GDPR and CCPA have similarities, they also have differing qualities, which means large businesses operating in both jurisdictions will need to comply with both. Businesses that are affected by the new legislation still have time to prepare before the law goes into effect in January 2020.
It’s Monday morning (womp) and you’re sitting in your weekly department meeting, walking through priorities. Next on the agenda: the project that has been challenging your team for weeks.
Steve Harrington is unarguably one of the best characters on Stranger Things. And believe it or not, there's a lot we can learn about paid media and email from Steve.
Hear us out.
Without giving too much away to those of you who have apparently lacked internet access since July, season three of Stranger Things features a goofy, lovable Steve Harrington who scoops ice cream and decodes Russian communications with his quirky friends at the Starcourt Mall.
Steve wasn’t always like this, though. Step back in time with us to 2016, when the Billboard charts were dominated by an apologetic Justin Bieber, Caribbean Drake and some group called The Chainsmokers.
