Architecture Innovations

Posted by Blake Nijs on May 27 at 2:30 PM Innovations today are seemingly endless.  You purchase a new phone and three days later is obsolete.  However, there is one area of technology that I feel is moving slower than the rest, architectural design for residential housing.  Since the 1950s it is there hasn’t been many substantial improvements in design, for the most part it appears to be at a standstill.  Isn’t it time for some new and more eco-friendly alternatives?

Green Cabs in Calgary

Posted by Blake Nijs on May 20 at 12:00 AM  There are a few hybrid cabs in Calgary but not nearly enough.  The question I have for the city of Calgary is why it is taking so long to become environmentally friendly?  Cities such as Vancouver and Toronto both have developed hybrid services that are already taking the steps towards becoming greener.

Growth of the Microagency: an interview with DMD Network CEO Rowland Hobbs

Posted by Jason Warnock on May 19 at 10:00 AM I am often asked where does DMD Green fit into the DMD Network?  How does sustainable consulting and things like SocialCycling® work with a network of PR, Design and Advertising Agencies?  This week I had an opportunity to do a little Q&A with DMD Network CEO Rowland Hobbs on the growth of DMD Green (www.dmdnetwork.com), I felt it was only fair then to turn the tables on him and get his thoughts on the growth of Microagencies and his experiences working in the fast lane of social marketing.

Lots has happened since February (read: Gulf Coast Oil Spill) and the social media sphere has been going crazy with content.  Our follow up analysis demonstrates how quickly and drastically the discussion changes with world events.  The Gulf oil spill is a terrible disaster indeed.  Never before has the news traveled the world as quickly as it has since the proliferation of social media.
