The wife of co-worker of mine is recognizing the anniversary of her mother’s death in a thoughtful and interesting way. She runs a Calgary-based child photography business called Tot Shots and also has Tot Shots Blog. Coming from an enthusiastic, but hack photographer of my own child, I like her style a lot. She is [..]

There aren’t too many things that can get me to wake up early on a Saturday morning when it is my turn to sleep in, but a BarCamp in my town and seeing Guy Kawasaki are definitely two of them. Guy decided to rip through both his “Art of Innovation” and his “Art of the [..]

Mark your calendars for December 15th, because Calgary’s first BarCamp will feature Guy Kawasaki, author, VC, blogger, early Apple employee among other things. I have yet to see him speak live, but have seen several of the recordings online. I think a BarCamp with only about 50 people would be an ideal way to see [..]

Full Disclosure: I work for the company that produced this ad. I wll refrain from saying anything either positive or negative about it. I merely post this in the hopes that it may generate some comment about marketers participating in Internet memes.

Having just moved to Calgary I am not going to pretend I have anything of value to say on the municipal politics front, however I am fascinated by what Jeremy Zhao is doing.

Canada – Webwalker

I am late to the party on this one, but DDB Canada launches a new social media arm and has already started taking some constructive criticism from several of the Canadian Social Media types about how they are launching the division. I am happy to participate and interested in the subject matter, but also smart enough to know that there are others who will be in attendance far more knowledgeable than I on the subject To prep us Joe.

Who made an excellent point about it: “It is interesting though that in the days before the internet, something like this would almost never get seen. By virtue of being in the web business if I had to read and understand every ULA that I “agreed to” I could never get any work done. With the ease of distribution we all get to enjoy this fingerlicking goodness that one person was creative enough to notice..

While I wouldn’t exactly call these three trends “hidden” they are not easily supported with numbers. I have recently been turned on to The Kaiser Edition and he has some great posts. At great risk of just being a repeater of some buzz worthy content. Hisrecent slideshare post however was gold.

I would have loved to see the pitch for the WhopperFreakout idea:”So we are proposing that we take your flagship food item and take it off the menu and then film people’s reactions..
