The Future of Hiring New Employees

This post originally appeared on Forbes.com. Technology and data are changing the ways companies do business but perhaps more interestingly is the way they are influencing how companies are hiring, and could be hiring, new employees. In many organizations the human resource department is considered the most important part of the organization. And rightfully so. A company is nothing more than the people within it so it should …

“My name is also Daniel Reich, and strange as it seems, I found your blog doing a bing search on my own name.”

This is a damn small world. The Internet makes it that much smaller. Just read the title of this post as proof (or see entire comment here from another Daniel Reich). For the rest of your life, everything you do and say will be public information and will be easily accessible. You can argue with me all you want but 10 years from now, if …

Monetizing YouTube and the Viral Effect

We used to live in what I will call a Media Dictatorship. A Media Dictatorship is a world where content is created by a few dictators (media companies), and as a result, those few dictators are able to charge a premium to advertisers for access to the eyeballs and ears of the people watching that premium content. This process is called television, radio, print, magazines, …

The Entrepreneurial Snowball Effect

Starting a business is very hard. In a matter of 24 hours your emotions can range from thinking that your business will be the next Google, to thinking how moronic you were for even contemplating the idea in the first place. In order to start a successful business, I believe you need two components above all else. 1. A Team Collective knowledge is more powerful …

Dear Ambassadors and Respected Representatives of UW-Madison and Education

In the back of my mind I’m always thinking about education and change. Below is an open letter written to some faculty members of my alma-mater about the importance in recognizing that change. (Before reading this letter, please note that I will be making this letter publicly available on my blog. Also, kindly take note of the recipients.) To: Chancellor Carolyn Martin – chancellor@news.wisc.edu To: …

Dear Jeff Jarvis – Here’s Some GoogleJuice

I recently finished reading What Would Google Do by Jeff Jarvis. This book is important for so many reasons, but the most important point of the book is that fundamentally, business in general is changing. Economics, supply and demand, manufacturing, education, fashion, government, finance, all of it is changing and unless you understand these changes and adopt a newer way of thinking, you will be …

Google and Social Networking

Until now, Google has been trying to identify efficient advertising solutions for social media. And rightfully so. Social media has become the premier medium for communication and media, and over the past few years, Google has arguably become the face of the internet. So Google figuring out the social networking issue is a logical and expected event. The only question is, what would such a …

Google, Microsoft head to MadTown

The amount of countless hours I’ve spent in UW-Madison’s Engineering Hall, should earn me the “GAL” or “Get a Life” award. Instead I will receive a degree in Electrical Engineering from UW-Madison. And perhaps the same reasons I decided to attend this University, are now being considered by Google, as they too plan on setting up shop in Madison, Wisconsin. In a statement to The Badger Herald, …
