Danish ad association pres View more presentations from lizstless. (via Danish ad association pres) Here’s a presentation I made at the Danish Association of Ad Agencies meeting at Advertising Week in NY this week. 5 trends in digital advertising! Plus some updates on what we’ve been up to this year since the merger. Let me know what you think!
Facebook activism succeeds not by motivating people to make a real sacrifice but...– - Malcom Gladwell in The New Yorker (via theweekmagazine) Haven’t read the article yet (tonight, promise), but seems to me it succeeds because it easily lets people stand up and be counted? I can imagine someone coming to me and pitching a means by which the majority of the population can...
New films in the works are guided by A-list directors, the kind who rarely...– New Team Alters Disney Studios’ Path - NYTimes.com David Fincher is becoming gloriously unpredictable.
I don’t know what to expect of you, but it is something in the way of a miracle....– Henry Miller, A Literate Passion: Letters of Anaïs Nin And Henry Miller, 1932-1953 (via fette) And then I’m going to leave you when shit gets a little crazy with World War II, that weird Gonzalez guy you started that press with in New York, and then your second husband. Though I was pretty...

healthmonth: Do you have the knowledge and desire to live healthier, but still never fit a way to put that into practice? Do you start new good habits only to have them fall by the wayside a little later? Waiting indefinitely for a kick-in-the-pants? Health Month is a new social…

The rumor is that Facebook will be generating a billion dollars in revenue....– Facebook is not worth $33,000,000,000 - (37signals) This, to me, seems misguided. First, a billion dollars in revenue is most certainly “real money,” by any measure of what that phrase seems to imply. “Real money,” to me, implies actual cash, it implies actual money flow,...
Marshall Haas: What is 8:36pm? →
bustr: marshallhaas: Within the last few weeks (25 days to be exact) I started a little project that is best named, 8:36pm. It’s quite simple, at 8:36pm every night I get a notification reminding me to take a moment to take a picture of what I’m currently doing right then. I’ve been uploading them to my flickr account… I love that other people are doing this, and making it their own. I love...
Iran Fights Strong Virus Attacking Computers -... →
One of TBG’s IT guys, Nick, told me about Stuxnet the other night. He had learned about it in January from the security blogs he reads, and so was blown away to learn, this week, that Stuxnet was probably made to specifically target a single nuclear facility in Iran, by an extremely sophisticated party. It’s pretty insane. The world’s first cyber superweapon. Madness.

Am I the only one that didn’t know about the FT’s Martin Lukes story? This is amazing!
I do not Tweet. Writing is work, and I take it seriously, and I don’t...– Tina Fey on TODAY (via today) No hatin’ on Tina, but that makes about as much sense as: I do not Tweet sketch. Writing Painting is work, and I take it seriously, and I don’t necessarily want to be dropping half-baked things into the universe all the time. And I don’t have time — I have a...
Barrett Garese: Cookies by Douglas Adams →
This actually did happen to a real person, and the real person was me. I had gone to catch a train. This was April 1976, in Cambridge, U.K. I was a bit early for the train. I’d gotten the time of the train wrong. I went to get myself a newspaper to do the crossword, and a cup of coffee and a… This is a major plot point of the new Ian McEwan novel, Solar. This story happens to a...
Climate change over geologic time is, Laughlin says, something the earth has...– George Will: Earth Doesn’t Care What Is Done to It - Newsweek This has been on my mind lately. The Earth really doesn’t care, it’ll shrug off human existence like a zit, after we destroy most of it’s resources and a few hundred thousand species. (via wreckandsalvage) This is very true, but once...

(via rickwebb) Interesting to think about how this kind of thinking spreads to all kinds of worldviews and opinions about how we should live our lives.
