  • 7. It’s Not About the Plumbing [On the introduction of TV advertising] The boffins had taken over - they could bamboozle clients with all the technical jargon of this mind boggling new media. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed producer proved to be king. And these one-eyed men - and they were all men - were the kings of advertising. Until, that is, someone said ‘we need an idea.‘ And then the one eyed producers were found to be somewhat wanting... Hegarty 7 @RogerWarner / @ContentMotion

  • 21. The Creative Mission... Create joy and value - not by shouts or bribes, but by getting inside people’s heads (and shoes) and giving them great value - by enabling them to give to and share with one another. This is the core dynamic of great Social comms - helping people be benefactors, storytellers, sages, entertainers and more... allowing them to create personal kudos. Think Social Capital. These are the ideas that matter. (Big ideas are not dead - we just need GOOD IDEAS, fit for social.) 21 @RogerWarner / @ContentMotion
