That's the old way of doing business. The future will see more customized, brand focused addresses. For example, instead of going to an internet address such as Boston.com /sports you would be directed to sports.boston.  Should you be more interested in local concerts you would go to music.boston and if you get a ticket on the way home you could go to dmv.boston.

We spoke a great deal about these upcoming changes in domains at the Digital Marketing & gTLD Strategy Congress.  The event, put together by Momentum Event Group, included an international audience with presenters from familiar names like Citibank, IBM, Google, L’Oreal, Neustar and the Boston Globe to companies you may soon here more about such as Donuts and DotGreen Community.  The attraction for the motley crew of companies was an opportunity to...

On March 13th, 2013, our CR team participated in Capital Link's CSR Forum "CSR & IR - Maximizing Shareholder Value."

We helped to put the event together because Capital Link has strong ties to the IR community, and we see value in increasing the conversation and understanding between CR and IR. The speakers included many leaders in the CR field, as well as both mainstream and SRI investors and analysts.

For example a sample panel on aligning CRS messaging included Dave Stangis, VP, Public Affairs & Corporate Responsibility - Campbell Soup Company, Curtis Ravenel, Global Head,...

Ahead of the Bell
Mrt 15 2013 | 8:09 AM

Ahead of the Bell: Dow futures are trading down 2 points and S&P futures are trading down 2 points.  Investors are taking a pause to assess the recent run up in US equities after the DJIA gained for a 10th straight trading session, while the S&P 500 closes in on its all-time high. Bank stocks will be in focus today, after the Federal Reserve ruled Thursday on its latest stress test.  Banks immediately hiked dividends and announced share buyback programs shortly following the news yesterday. Concerns over weaker economic data, along with inflation in China have dampened investors’ appetite for riskier assets temporarily.

André van Duin, alias meneer Wijdbeens, luidt de gong voor de campagne ‘Draag je steentje bij’ die Stichting Kinderen Kankervrij (KiKa) start op vrijdag 15 maart.

Kanker is nog steeds de meest voorkomende doodsoorzaak bij kinderen. Een op de vier geneest niet van deze verschrikkelijke ziekte. Het overlevingspercentage moet omhoog en dat kan. Door zorg en onderzoek op één locatie samen te brengen in een nieuw te bouwen kinderoncologisch centrum, het Prinses Máxima Centrum. Met alle gespecialiseerde zorg, onderzoek, onderwijs en opleiding op het allerhoogste niveau onder één dak, kan de ambitie worden waargemaakt om het overlevingspercentage op termijn te verhogen naar 95%. KiKa start daarom een grote landelijke actie om geld in te zamelen voor de bouw van het grootste kinderoncologisch centrum van Europa. Door het kopen van een symbolische...
