Mercury Award Nominations Upcoming

The Barclaycard Mercury Awards are the only music awards I really care about, and I’m very excited to see the list of ‘possible’ nominations according to NME.com

My personal favorites:

Jungle – By Jungle

Solid smooth electronic music. Some trip hop elements that are pretty fun.

 

Wild Beats – Present Tense

Really great album, though their previous album ‘Smother’ is one of my all time favorite albums, but this is still a really good album.

 

Royal Blood – Royal Blood

Holy cow, a Rock album that just rocks. This album has become a great album to work out to, and it reminds me of Muse mixed with Rage Against The Machine with a slight Jack White vibe.

 

East India Youth – Total Strife Forever

Really interesting classical-electronic style music. Not easy listening but if you are into more ambient style music, you may like this one.

1st Rule: You don’t talk about A/B Testing.

Don’t tell your visitors they are part of an A/B test. It would contaminate the test and would make them feel awkward. Try to hide the test as much as you can. If you have redirects or URL parameters showing up, make them not too obvious to the visitors.

2nd Rule: You DO NOT talk about A/B Testing.

Stop talking and start testing. Way too much time is spent discussing what to test and how to test and not enough time is actually spent testing stuff. Start small and iterate. Every minute without testing is a lost opportunity to learn something.

3rd Rule: If someone says “stop” or goes limp, taps out the test is over.

If you are testing on a large environment and someone reports an issue somehow related to your test, you stop it immediately. You fix the problem…
