Forwarded to me by my brother, Graham. 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. With the ease of distribution we all get to enjoy this fingerlicking goodness that one person was creative enough to notice.” So [..]

Was just alerted to this trend this morning. People using old album covers as masks and taking photos and upping them to flickr, facebook, etc. Great fun and gives me a reason to crack out some of my old vinyl again. Sleeveface Flickr Pool I know this makes me sound old, but this makes [..]

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 [..]

Interesting article in Emarketer on three hidden 2008 trends. While I wouldn’t exactly call these three trends “hidden” they are not easily supported with numbers (which is eMarketer’s raison d’etre). 1. Increased media fragmentation – important, but The Long Tail opened and closed the book on that as a trend. 2. Internet as central hub [..]

Garbage Terms of Service, ULAs and other forms of nonsense legal documentation drive me nuts. 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. I firmly believe that it is the responsibility of any web or [..]

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.

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.


Calgary – Webwalker

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. 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.


Advertising – Webwalker

In the race for media buyers to turn online video into something they are familliar with, namely broadcast TV, an important opportunity has been lost: the ability to really measure something. Only in the Age of YouTube could the people from stock footage be able to speak out about how their footage is used. Joe Thornley graciously invited me to the Roundtable he is organizing on Social Media Metrics and measurement.


Attention – Webwalker

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.. This “We didn’t start the Fire”format is getting a bit tired, the execution is not great, but I couldn’t agree more with the message. Just about everyone I know is spending considerably less time on Facebook these days comscore reports that the ads don’t work.
