Broderick Crawford Day

33 Dimensions Newsletter for October 4, 2013

Broaderick Crawford as Dan Matthews“10-4”

A friend of mine always calls this day “Broderick Crawford Day” in honor of the actor who portrayed the fedora-wearing character on the 1950s television show Highway Patrol. One of the signature shots of that series was Crawford’s character barking rapid-fire dialogue into the police radio, using brevity codes such as “21-50”, “11-27”, and of course “10-4” (meaning “acknowledged”). While these codes must have at first seemed like jibberish, millions of children from the fifties soon learned the lingo.

With the fast moving world of technology today, much of the lingo and newer terms may be confusing at first. This causes many to shy away from pursuing new technological pursuits and using the tools available. 33 Dimensions can help make sense of these technologies and guide you towards the appropriate channels to make your online presence a success. If you check out our updated Services page, you will see that there is no job too complex or too small for us to handle for you.

We Most Certainly Have Our Work Cut Out For Us

 

33 Dimensions Newsletter, Labor Day edition
September 2, 2013

SisyphusHappy Labor Day everyone.

In the literal spirit of today’s holiday, I am writing this brief newsletter to reaffirm my comittment to work harder than anyone for the success of my customers and my company. In all honesty, this has been a rather sluggish summer for business expansion, as some of the expected (or hoped for) opportunities did not quite break our way. Growing and expanding a small business has been tough due to the continued uncertainty in the economy and lukewarm consumer confidence.

However, as a firm believer in the promise of the future, I resolve to double my efforts and press forward in the face of these challenges. Right now, we choose to focus upon the optimistic fact that this is an incredible time for web technology with a fantastic array of new tools and technologies to forge the future of our business. So for the next four months, through the end of this year, we will work our tails off building this business and providing the best and most up-to-date technology for our current and new customers. Consider this a “New Year’s resolution” four months in advance, as we expect to be moving at full speed when 2014 arrives.

Stay tuned, folks!

Moving Day

 

33 Dimensions Newsletter
June 9, 2013

Moving BoxesJune 9th

This date has become known around my house as “Moving Day” due to the amazing coincidences of big events on this date through the years. Starting in 1996, when my wife Karyn and I moved into our first home on June 9th of that year. Two years to the day, on June 9, 1998, we bought our first home together in Drums, Pa, where we stayed for six years. On June 9, 2004 we signed a lease on a townhouse in Silver Spring Township as we migrated to the Harrisburg area due to my employment at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which began a year earlier on (you guessed it) June 9, 2003. Seven years ago today, on June 9, 2006, we closed on the sale of our current home in the Middletown area (where we plan on staying for a while). Finally, it was on June 9, 2011 when 33 Dimensions began to officially operate as an LLC.

So what’s in store for today? Well, while we’re not physically “moving” anywhere, we are vastly traversing new frontiers as an expanding small business, especially with respect to the new services we now offer our clients.

News from 33 Dimensions

It is estimated that about 4-6 weeks ago (sometime in late April or Early May), the threshold was crossed where more people access the internet via a mobile device than those who access using traditional desktops or laptops. Further, it is highly unlikely that this trend will ever reverse. With this in mind, 33 Dimensions is now developing websites using Responsive Design, which adapts and optimizes the site for any screen size, whether desktop, tablet, or mobile. We have also recently re-designed our own website using responsive design.

Some other new services which we are now offering include Video Editing and productions of montage style promotional videos, Graphic Design, and a full range of Social Media services.

Rock n Roll

Modern Rock ReviewToday is the 2nd anniversary of the official launch of Modern Rock Review on 10/10/10. Two years ago, the site kicked off with a first-of-its-kind profile of The Badlees, which examined their career on the 20th anniversary of their own debut EP in 1990. Since that launch, the site went on to do extensive profiles on Rush, Mark Oliver Everett, Lenny Kucinski, and Coldplay, along with many more articles, album reviews, and blogs.

Today the website also announced J.D. Cook as the new Executive Editor.

Classic Rock ReviewClassic Rock Review started off as a specialized section of Modern Rock Review in 2011 but has become its own distinct website with a clear mission. The site’s primary purpose is to review significant, historic rock albums in a systematic way, by dedicating particular periods to focus on particular feature years in rock n roll. Right now the year being featured is 1987, which will continue to be covered through October 28th with the album of the year feature on U2’s The Joshua Tree. Starting in November, the site will review albums from 1972.

In the Dark by Grateful Dead
A Momentary Lapse of Reason by Pink Floyd
Kick by INXS
Tango In the Night by Fleetwood Mac
