Marketing Technology refers to the tools used for marketing efforts on the Internet. A futurist is someone who makes predictions about the future trajectories of current trends.
The two come together in the form of Jason Hope, Arizona-based entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist.
Hope has written about the Internet of Things (IoT) on many technology blogs and sites. His focus goes beyond pure technology. He analyzes the effect of IoT in terms of social, scientific and economic influence. One technology sector he sees IoT having an enormous impact on is Marketing Technology.
Hope believes that the marketing opportunities created by the IoT will drive innovation in the field of Marketing Technology. By 2020, there will be a predicted 75 billion devices connected to the Internet. These are phones, home appliances, watches, cars and things we haven’t dreamed about yet. All these connections translate to data.
Data is the life blood of Marketing Technology. Data drives decision-making. The Internet of Things generates data every second – what sites did a person visit, what did they buy, what did they post on social media about the buying experience, how much did they spend in one day at the mall.
Were all this data linked to a marketer’s database, they would have the ability to respond and interact with their customer. They would know what offers to make once the consumer enters a store. Companies would acquire a clearer view of who their customers are from all this data.
Hope believes that better data translates to higher returns on investment for businesses. Consumers will find their in-store or on-site experience improving as more individualized data is made available. Everyone wins.
Beacon technology will bring some of this vision into retail reality. Jason Hope is betting that it’s only scratching the surface.

Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch has joined the crew of Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man movie.
Hirsch is joining the project as a story contributor. This will mark the TV veteran’s first foray into a major animated film, though he is also a writer on the upcoming live action movie Detective Pikachu.
After working on the Cartoon Network series The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and then Disney Channel’s Fish Hooks, Hirsch created Gravity Falls, also for Disney Channel. The story was a huge success, notable for its use of an overarching plot, mystery and horror elements into what was otherwise a hilarious show about a pair of twelve-year-old twins in a town full of wacky supernatural creatures.
Fans should now be wondering how many of those elements he can bring to the upcoming Spider-Man film.
The upcoming Sony cartoon, which will be co-directed by Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey, is not to be confused with Disney and Marvel Studio’s upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. This project, as yet untitled, will be animated and focus on Miles Morales rather than the more famous Peter Parker.
Morales originated in Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man, a comic book series set in a different universe than most of their titles. In this world, Peter Parker died in a battle against his arch-enemy, the Green Goblin; inspired by his sacrifice, the younger Miles Morales, who had received powers similar to his, took his place as the new Spider-Man, donning a mostly-black costume.
While Hirsch’s involvement is currently only as story contributor, fans may wonder if he will also do any voice work; he played several Gravity Falls characters, including Grunkle Stan, Soos, Old Man McGucket and main villain Bill Cipher.
Wikipedia has come a long way from its early days as an open source encyclopedia that your high school English teacher taught you never to cite from. As the site has grown more affluent and dedicated to fact-checking, some…curious side effects have been observed.
Researchers at the Oxford Internet Institute sifted through nine years of data about automated editing programs at Wikipedia and found some amusing patterns. Specifically, many of the bots have been in personal editing wars, often against other individual bots. Publishing their findings Thursday, it seems amusingly that machines have gone to flame war, editing and counter-editing the same minutia for years on end before anyone caught it.
Wikipedia uses many automated programs, commonly “bots”, to parse through the site’s millions of pages and make small corrections to bring a page’s wording into line with the website’s standard, or to catch obvious attempts to sabotage a page. But most of these bots are user created, so once approved by Wikipedia, there is little linking them to each other.
The end result is the various bots going in to make minor corrections on web pages, only for another bot to scan the same page, detect an “error” from the previous robot, and correct it back. Over time these conflicting scripts give the impression that specific bots are targeting others, almost like a form of internet harassment. These findings could give us some insights into the internet as a whole, as on major sites like Twitter, bots generate almost 25% of all tweets.
While the machines may not rise yet, we should keep a wary eye on all the practice they are getting. Even if it is only trolling each other.

Japan is working hard to preserve its rich ninja heritage with a brand new museum. The nation’s official Japan Ninja Council is now working on a brand new high-tech museum dedicated to the legendary warriors. If all things go according to plan, this museum should be set to open in Tokyo in 2018.
The Japan Ninja Council was founded to celebrate Japan’s long history and encourage younger Japanese citizens to learn from the warrior tradition of the ninja. This new ninja museum in Tokyo will be a part of the “Cool Japan” initiative, an initiative which hopes to educate and inspire visitors with Japan’s amazing history.
Of course, with the Tokyo Olympics set to take place in 2020, the Japan Ninja Council believes there’s no better time to construct this world-class museum. People from around the world visiting Tokyo for the summer games will be able to learn all about one of Japan’s most famous traditions.
Unfortunately, ninjas are mostly a thing of the past in Japan. While there are a few true ninjas still in Japan, there are only about five or six masters that actually practice in the way ancient ninjas used to. If nothing is done, the modern day ninjas believe they will be totally erased from modern Japanese society within one generation.
One major modern ninja still teaching in Japan is named Jinichi Kawakami. Kawakami runs the Kogo ninja school where he tries to pass on his expertise to those interested in following the tradition of the ninja.
Ninjas were especially powerful in the 15th and 17th centuries. During these centuries, ninjas were often enlisted as covert spies for government officials. Today, however, practicing ninjas focus on the values of strength training, self-discipline, and humility.
Japan’s Aichi Prefecture is also trying to get the Japanese people interested in the discipline of the ninja. The Aichi Prefecture has set up numerous study centers where people from around the world can learn from modern full-time ninjas. People in the Aichi Prefecture hope these ninjas will help promote “warlord tourism” in the region.
