Taking a look at the two political themes conflicting in American politics today, I find the following messaging:

Republicans want to teach people how to fish for themselves,

Democrats wants to give people fish without them going out and fishing. Continue reading

Does Technology = DUMB ?

12 Aug

Had the opportunity the other day to sit down with a group of teenagers (a MULTICULTURAL sample between 15 – 17 years of age) that were all tweeting or doing the social stuff they all do nowadays. None were talking or tweeting among themselves, but all sitting in the same living room at a home I was visiting.

Interesting enough I was able to get their attention for about five (5) minutes away from their technology. Continue reading

While at the Detroit airport, I stop into a shop to grab a bottle of water and a pack of gum when out of the corner of my eye I see the current edition of Forbes Magazine, with Sofia Vergara on the cover. I’m not ready to confess if it was Forbes powerful brand appeal that caught my attention or Sofia. In either case, I picked up the magazine and thought, “Ha. That’s cool. I didn’t realize Forbes had launched a Latino offering.” A closer look revealed that this was no Latino offering. This was Forbes general market magazine. They decided to not just focus on Sofia, because that would be too easy and a cheap way to sell magazines, right? So they widened the focus to address the Hispanic economic opportunity largely unrealized by U.S. Advertisers and general market media companies. The headline reads: “The Next Media Jackpot: Murdoch, Comcast and Disney Battle for Control of the $1 Trillion Hispanic Market” Continue reading
