This group means so much to me …

Time to (re)ground ourselves in substantial dialogue?

So, I wrote a three-paragraph intro to this link, talking about how this HBR piece resonated with me, and resolving to spend more time adding meat to this blog. Then, when I published the piece, my great thoughts were gone. Only the link remained …

It is going to take a while to digest this one.

The Atlantic's Tom Cochran on "Data as a Media Game Changer"

Cochran’s piece is not only provocative, but eloquent — making one realize how pedestrian so much of the text that passes as “thought leadership” really is. Great ideas simply cannot be expressed by plain language; they require equally powerful articulation to really live and breathe. Making this a very big “Note to Self” …  

Great quote from Cochran: “In order to survive the digital hunger games, media companies must acknowledge that they are data-driven technology companies. The product will always be insightful content, but the delivery methods require ever-evolving emerging technologies.”

Experimenting with Instagram … Why did an app that makes your pictures look older become so hot? Seems so counterintuitive somehow … But the results are fun — and am following some really excellent photographers there, such as Amanda Charchian and Bob Doran.

Great conversation around brands entering the mobile space (via @urbanairship). The pitfalls of CMOs and marketing teams… and how brands should be thinking about and approaching mobile.

I love the way this is filmed and edited … Want to try something like this with our clients.
