The 10 Deadly Sins of BtoB Publishing

first_imgMIAMI—Even in the face of a down real estate market, b-to-b residential housing and commercial construction publishing giant Hanley Wood is maintaining an aggressive business strategy. During today’s luncheon keynote at the FOLIO: Publishing Summit, CEO Frank Anton unveiled what he calls the “10 deadly sins” that have b-to-b companies in a “spiral of purgatory” in a down economy.Anton outlined the sins—underperformance, cowardice, technophobia, inferiority, complacency, coziness, stinginess, cluelessness, disorganization and dullness—with examples from Anton’s own experience in leading Hanley Wood.“Fear of failure for many outweighs the satisfaction of success,” Anton said of the “cowardice” sin. “Try things. Take chances. To grow a company you need to take risks. Sometimes you’ll fail but try. Learn.” Trade publishers that have underinvested in electronic media are now playing catch-up—and are paying the price, Anton said in reference to his ‘technophobia’ sin. Hanley Wood’s online advertising has seen growth over the last couple of years, and Anton expects that revenue to grow 40 percent this year, he said.In regards to complacency, Anton urged even successful publishers to continue to strive to be better. “Too many companies are making money and don’t care if their publication is the number one, number two or number three book in their segment. I don’t get that,” he said. “Being competitive and winning is fun. Be restless. Work hard to be the best.”last_img read more

Watch SpaceXs droneship catch a rocket part that fell from space

first_img SpaceX The fairing is part of the protective cover at the top of the Falcon 9, which shields payloads as they’re lifted into orbit. Once the rocket punches out of the atmosphere and into space, the fairing breaks in half and falls back to Earth. A droneship, stationed in the Atlantic Ocean, then attempts to catch the fairing with a giant net. We’ve seen SpaceX capture a fairing on its most recent launch and before that we’ve seen it fail a few times. It seems practice makes perfect and it’s finally getting the hang of nabbing the nosecone like a ship-sized Mark Waugh stationed in the slips (that’s one for our Aussie readers).A New Zealand-based spaceflight company, Rocket Lab, announced on Tuesday it would also begin attempting to reuse rockets. It won’t be capturing any fairings, but it will try and snag the first stage booster from the sky with a helicopter.

It was the third flight for the Falcon 9 booster and to get the satellite to orbit SpaceX had to do away with the booster — so we don’t get to see SpaceX pull off another dazzling booster return. However, we have got the next best thing: A droneship capturing the rocket’s fairing.Elon Musk, SpaceX CEO, posted a video of the daring fairing capture to Twitter on Tuesday.  0 Meet the SpaceX Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful rocket Rocket fairing falling from space (higher res) pic.twitter.com/sa1j10qAWi— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 7, 2019last_img read more
