A little piece of inspiration

April 20, 2011

I’m always on the look out for things that force me to look at my apparently routine-bound days in different ways. Here is a site that makes me want to finish the six word stories posted everyday. It’s like a bucksfizz kick to the mind every morning: Six Word Story Everday

Pet rock eating paper

This morning it lead me to wonder what kind of person would have a pet rock?

webroot social sobriety test

How easy it use to be: as long as you got yourself out of the bar before you managed to combine the dignity-defying cocktail of one-too-many, an ex-boyf and loss of volume control, you were pretty much home and dry. Then came the mobile where 24/7 connection was made that much easier and drunk fingers automatically found their way to dialing or texting the result of the said dignity-defying cocktail. But at least then you were pretty much only communicating your hideous message to your ex-one-and-only.

Now you can broadcast that little message to hundreds, at a click of a button. And to compound your mistake, you can now go on to insult everyone you know, picking them off one at a time, again at a click of a button. But it’s okay the Social Media Sobriety Test from Webroot is here to keep your fingers away from the buzzer and your dignity and friendships in tact.

For Webroot, it’s a good bit of marketing mix integration. Developing one P (product of those of us who drank away our learned marketing theory years) to help another P (that would be promotion). It’s a clever innovation that will get them blogged about and passed around.

And there you have it, my post-rationalised reason why I’m blogging about it. Now, what was that webroot site again? http://socialmediasobrietytest.com/

The quote tickles me. Can’t abide the man.

August 2, 2010

Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones.

Can David’s Big Society benefit from rebranding already?

July 15, 2010

The online community’s generosity with their time and brainpower has always amazed my. Open source is one of the most powerful movements in the digital space giving little people access to big talent. Looks to me like we already have a BIG SOCIETY. Maybe Cameron should have considered calling his idea the OPEN SOURCE SOCIETY?
