Maybe you’ve heard of the internet and intranet, but have you heard of a “sneakernet”? That’s the term for when data is transferred by physically moving storage media, like a USB drive. Sometimes it’s faster to physically carry a hard drive from one location to another than try to transfer it over a network. (In one September 2009 test, a messenger pigeon carrying a 4 GB memory stick over 60 miles was faster than a DSL internet service provider).
“Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.” We’ve all heard the adaptation of Henry Ford’s famous quote about self-belief. It applies wonderfully to an array of topics, and as live event/marketing professionals, it is quite important to our individual (and greater) successes. Personally, I see it in action all day every day.
