charlesfrith says: Thats an interesting observation about the music/style worlds colliding on the show in the first Youtube clip. I don’t think that could or would happen now as there is a plurality which has somehow morphed into sameness. Not sure if I’ve captured what I wanted to say but no harm trying! There was a good feature in the Observer last weekend about rare footage making...

I remember vividly Mary Stow at HHCL & Partners urging me to push really hard on the VALUES of the clients we have in advertising and I’ve carried that important lesson with me for many years. All too frequently many ‘wannabe’ brands share only one common tangible value and that is shareholder return, or chasing money in plain language if you wish. There’s nothing...

Google has never advertised on TV, and actually don’t do any brand marketing at all. David Lawee, the Google VP of marketing figures he has the easiest job in marketing because all of his decisions revolve around answering one simple question: what’s best for the user? (This reminds me of one of the chapters in the Made to Stick book, on the Southwest Airlines philosophy, in which...

Wow, Kevin Rose has a list of people you might want to add when you are on Pownce (which continues growing faster than Twitter or Jaiku) and he says I’m a video rockstar on it.

Have had some brilliant conversations this week on the nature of blogging. An article I found mentioned that only 75 Australians are in the Technorati top 25,000 (Gavin and I some of those 75) but that seemed to make the journalist (and Ross Dawson) believe that the current state of blogging is some cause for concern. Since when did blogging become a competitive sport???? I’m a believer...
