Email Backscatter

Marker Seven was recently inquired about an issue with a client's email account regarding spam email. The client's email account has seemingly been sending out spam mail, only to be bounced back into their own inbox as a delivery failure notice. However, no outgoing messages of the sort were found in the sent or in the outbox. After receiving an example delivery failure email and doing some research, Marker Seven has identified the problem and recommended a course of action to reduce the number of spam emails our client will receive in their inbox .

Drupal versus Wordpress

Every project we undertake has a unique set of demands, and we evaluate each on its own terms. When choosing a platform, we often find ourselves talking with clients about the merits of Drupal versus WordPress. 

Both WordPress and Drupal work very well as content management systems. Each provides a robust mechanism for creating and delivering straightforward content. However, as an overarching framework for more than simple publishing, Drupal has far greater capabilities than WordPress, as it is designed to be leveraged and extended.

Part 2 -- Thinking ahead for our clients with virtual and augmented reality

This interview is the second in a series of three where our CEO John Clauss talks with longtime friend and Marker Seven advisor Evan Kirchhoff about augmented and virtual realities. You can see the first part of the interview here.

JC: Science fiction has lots of examples of VR turning deadly. But in real life, is there any basis in physics for the possibility of a holo-game potentially causing physical harm?

Thinking ahead for our clients with virtual and augmented reality

Our CEO John Clauss sat down with Evan Kirchhoff, a virtual reality expert, and one of the members of our innovation team who has worked with us as a strategic advisor since 2001.

Their goal was to think together about the current and future states of virtual reality and augmented reality. Marker Seven is particularly interested in this line of thought because a number of our clients come from industries or are working on projects particularly conducive to AR and VR, such as medical equipment, educational platforms, and retail products.

KQED Learn: Media Literacy for a Blended Learning Experience

KQED, one of the biggest public media outlets in the US saw a challenge: How can we equip today’s youth with the tools to understand, analyze, author and engage with the media they encounter? To answer this, Marker Seven worked with KQED to help create an engaging digital product to help the next generation of media content generators practice these skills in a real work setting. The outcome was KQED Learn.   Through KQED Learn, students can interact with their classmates, as well as peers throughout the Bay Area, honing their media literacy skills.

Fresh Victor Launch Party!

Nothing says “party” like a great cocktail. But, until now, cocktail mixes have never been anything to celebrate – they’re typically full of processed sugars, artificial neon colors, and hard to pronounce chemicals. Enter Fresh Victor – a new fresh cocktail juice blend and, technically, an entirely new product category.
