  41. 41. Bing maps evolution • Silverlight makes it AMAZING! • Applications built on top of Bing Maps • E.g. see real-time Tweets in this location
  42. 42. #4 : practical philosophy
  43. 43. neuroscience and marketing • Pet rock success – do we need neuroscience to sell? • There are no such things as “super ads”, no mind reading • Use of smiley faces in ads show a higher acceptance level in ads than neutral faces • Not being able to decipher a facial expression makes us more curious (Monalisa, catwalk model?). Why? • Human brain can only process 2-3 images at a time. • Anything more than 3 gives us anxiety. Why? • Decoy marketing – a counterintuitive way to sell more • Dips and chips; the evocative moment of dipping the chip in the salsa; moment of the experience. • Ask the kids to study before going to sleep. Why?
  44. 44. too much math killing marketing? • Panel split “for” and “against” math • Right/left brain people see things differently (vid) • Moderator listening to audience tweets and responds in real-time • Most popular session at sxsw (‘coz they listen?)
