  • SXSW began as a music festival in 1987British singer James Blunt was discovered by producer Linda Perry while playing a small show at the 2004 SXSW Music festival, and was signed to Perry's Custard Records soon thereafter,[9] where he would go on to release all three of his subsequent albums.
  • In 1994, SXSW added a component for film and other media, named the "SXSW Film and Multimedia Conference".[3]In 1995, the SXSW Film and Multimedia Conference was split into two separate events, "SXSW Film" and "SXSW Multimedia".[3]In 1999, SXSW Multimedia was renamed "SXSW Interactive"

  • Smartphone sales overtook PC sales in the fourth quarter of 2010
  • Google Maps usage is 40% mobileLocation and contextual discoveryGoogle expects searches from mobile to exceed searches from PCs in 2013 – though that might happen sooner.Location-based services, including new releases of Maps for mobile, check-ins, deals and augmented reality, are evolving into quintessentially Google products. The world of "contextual discovery" – organising information, reviews and deals around a given location – is the local play on Google's longest-standing ambition.
  • (Late last year, Nicaragua refused to withdraw troops from a disputed parcel of land along its border with Costa Rica after Google Maps wrongly labelled it Nicaraguan territory.)
  • The explosive growth of smartphones, home wifi, laptops and tablets has provided the framework for widespread social TV
  • Smartphone sales overtook PC sales in the fourth quarter of 2010
  • Last decade for social layer frameworkNext decade for game layerAll about using dynamics, using forces to influence behaviour – what you do, where and how
  • Plus progression dynamics

  • Brand journalism is an editorial approach to brand building that is transparent and engages the audience. It is a non-fiction approach, that requires thinking like publishers rather than marketers or agencies.  Telling a story instead of pushing a message.It is changing the way companies and agencies approach public relations, communications, marketing and advertising.The use of dynamic online newsrooms for brand journalism escaped panel discussion, and umbrage at the use of the word “journalism” struck a nerve with many communication professionals, former journalists and journalists alike.
  • The Refresh Project accomplished everything a social media program is expected to: Over 80 million votes were registered; almost 3.5 million "likes" on the Pepsi Facebook page; almost 60,000 Twitter followers. The only thing it failed to do was sell Pepsi.The results are now in. It has been a disaster.Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Pepsi-Cola and Diet Pepsi had each lost about 5% of their market share in the past year. If my calculations are correct, for the Pepsi-Cola brand alone this represents a loss of over $350 million. For both brands, the loss is probably something in the neighborhood of 400 million to half-a-billion dollars.For the first time ever Pepsi-Cola has dropped from its traditional position as the number two soft drink in America to number three (behind Diet Coke.)In 2010, Pepsi's market share erosion accelerated by 8 times compared to the previous year.

  • A smartphone today would have been the most powerful computer in the world in 1985

    Horace Dediu, former Nokia Executive
    In fact, today's phones have about the same raw processing power as a laptop from 10 years ago. And every year they close the gap.

  • What brands can learn…
    from news rooms and political campaigns
    Working in real time
    new content every day that promotes and encourages dialogue with their target audience
    They must also monitor new blog entries, videos and other items using (for example) RSS feeds or Twitter
    and political campaigns
    Messages are clearly formulated, with daily news about the “brand”, but oriented toward current events

  • Seth Godin in 2004
    changing the marketing without changing the underpinnings of the business is almost always a bad strategy
    The marketer doesn't get to run the conversation. It's not really brand journalism that's happening, you see. It's brand cocktail party!
