fantastic! I fully understood inkjet limitations today

"Inkjet will never fly" -- this is hands down the best Not Frank video I've seen to date. Not that I want to date Not Frank, but you guys at WTT are ever on the cutting (floor) edge.

Bravo! Bring back Not Not Frank! (I guess this means Frank??)

:)

Perhaps inkjet COULD fly if the ink was under very high pressure and the jetting systems were able to produce droplets in the shape of airfoils(?) I'll bet we can get the best engineering minds on this right away... What do you say (Not) Frank?

Joe, I never knew you had a standup comedy background too.

Thanks for the laugh.

I want to see Not Dr Joe

(Not) Frank is way off the mark in his description of "ink jet". "Ink jet" does not refer to shipping ink via jet planes. That's just silly. "Ink jet" refers to mega-droplets (pardon the oxymoron) of ink the size of shipping containers that are enveloped in a gossamar fabric and propelled by solar powered tiny "jets" arrayed strategically on their surfaces. When in shipment, each drop(let?) is drone-like-controlled making it possible for the supplier to "target" each and every customer "on-demand". This ultra efficient delivery system is just another example of how the Mensa minds of the printing industry continue to win the cross-media. Go Print!

Are You Ready for the MarTech Explosion?

Published: January 16, 2017

Marketing technology is exploding. Michael Chase of St. Joseph Communications says that there are now more than 3,500 providers of "MarTech" services. But, building efficient marketing platforms requires more than just cherry-picking technology solutions. Chase notes that all the MarTech in the world won't help if there is no content strategy in place to guide the effort. The first tasks are to define the kinds of content to be created and to identify the audiences to whom the content will be presented. Armed with this knowledge, says Chase, marketers can choose the right channels and work toward achievable outcomes.
