Taco Bell’s #Belluminati Campaign: Online Reactions Split Along Generational Lines

Apr 19, 2018 | Robin Parrish

A recent Taco Bell ad campaign featuring jokes about the Illuminati has caused a considerable stir online. Younger viewers (ostensibly the ad’s target audience) enjoyed the commercial’s dark humor, while older generations take offense at its irreverence toward what they believe is a serious and dangerous subject. But strong reactions to this campaign have emerged on both sides on social…

The Journey to the Personal Cloud

Apr 10, 2018 | Dan Kelley

For developers and architects, the last few years have been truly amazing! I thought we reached a peak when I was able to use complex technologies—including a clustered database, queues, and topics—to build an event-based application over a weekend. Though the logic wasn’t complex, it was amazing to setup that infrastructure…

So far, so good. But how do you ensure…

Apr 5, 2018 | Jason Rivera

The recent introduction of Hub Sites in SharePoint signals a significant change in the way we create and organize site hierarchy. Traditionally when building SharePoint sites, one would create an isolated set of sites (site collections) and in those site collections would exist a hierarchy…
