  • 1. WHERE THE ARE
  • 2. Max had a simple room
  • 3. Then companies decided to tell Max about their products on his walls
  • 4. But soon there were so many that Max was getting confused.
  • 5. So companies branded the walls so Max could recognise them.
  • 6. They all fought for Max’s attention.
  • 7. And so, the companies and their brands talked a lot TO Max. Max http://www.flickr.com/photos/fotologic/1119391517/

  • 10. Max travelled to where the Wild Things are http://www.flickr.com/photos/jef/2750580371/
  • 11. Max had a lot of fun with the Wild Things!

  • 14. Companies and their brands can encourage us to talk about things – preferably their things, but most are devoid of conversation themselves. http://www.flickr.com/photos/imagesniper/2463857674/
  • 15. Only a real person can create and enter a whole world of conversation.
  • 16. Companies and brands are more interested in numbers than conversations. http://www.flickr.com/photos/declanjewell/2606490853/
  • 17. Companies and their brands need to learn new and different things. http://www.flickr.com/photos/aka_kath/1795794526/
  • 18. To talk with people and listen, for example. http://www.flickr.com/photos/clairity/152421481/
  • 19. And to be humble, perhaps.
  • 20. Then maybe they can go and play with Max where the Wild Things are.
