Learning Lunch. Prob won't make much sense without me wittering on in the background. About setting up the new business, branded utility, some Google stuff and a few pieces of inspiration (do check out the Royal Society Animate videos on YouTube, the one on time is incredible).

  • I feel like flow is ascen­dant these days, for obvi­ous reasons—but we neglect stock at our own peril. I mean that both in terms of the health of an audi­ence and, like, the health of a soul. Flow is a tread­mill, and you can’t spend all of your time run­ning on the tread­mill. Well, you can. But then one day you’ll get off and look around and go: Oh man. I’ve got noth­ing here.
    But I’m not say­ing you should ignore flow! No: this is no time to hole up and work in iso­la­tion, emerg­ing after long months or years with your perfectly-polished opus. Every­body will go: huh? Who are you? And even if they don’t—even if your exquisitely-carved mar­ble statue of Boba Fett is the talk of the tum­blrs for two whole days—if you don’t have flow to plug your new fans into, you’re suf­fer­ing a huge (here it is!) oppor­tu­nity cost. You’ll have to find them all again next time you emerge from your cave.

  • You have a medium-independent idea that feels al- ready press worthy without any execution. Based on this idea, which is usually of an event nature, creating TV spots, banner ads or funny Facebook apps comes easy. A good example for this would be Crispin’s Coke Zero campaign.The idea: “Coke Zero” tastes like Coke; that’s why Coke sues “Coke Zero” and thus, basically themselves. On TV, real-life reactions of lawyers on this were shown and online you were able to sue your friends for the same taste.

    21. 21. I BOUGHT AN IPAD STEVE JOBS @ D8 CONFERENCE "When we were an agrarian nation, all cars were trucks because that's what you needed on the farms." "PCs are going to be like trucks," Jobs said. "They are still going to be around but only one out of x people will need them." The move, Jobs said, will make many PC veterans uneasy...
    22. 22. ONLIVE IPAD DEMO D8 CONFERENCE
    23. 23. MODERN FAMILY D8 CONFERENCE Producer Levitan is a geek, though, and I was particularly taken with how the show team uses Twitter as an immediate feedback loop. When "Modern Family" airs live, the show team watches the audience "laughing on Twitter." He called it "Google Mirth," and thinks that social networks are "bringing people back to watching TV live (because) they want to participate in that program."

GOOGLE MOBILE APPS RESEARCH UNDERSTANDING USERS ANYWHERE, ANYTIME "R e p e t i t i v e n o w " "Bored now" "Urgent now" "Repetitive now" is checking for the same information over and over, like checking the same stock quotes or weather. Google uses cookies to help cater to mobile users who check and recheck the same data points. "Bored now" users who have time on their hands. People on trains or waiting in airports or sitting in cafes. Mobile users in this group look a lot more like casual Web surfers, but mobile phones don't offer the robust user input of a desktop, so the applications are tailored.

"Urgent now" is a request to find something specific fast, like the location of a bakery or directions to the airport. Since a lot of these questions are location-aware, Google tries to build location into the mobile versions of these queries.

    35. 35. 3 TRENDS Trend 1: Geolocation tools and the convergence of online and offline experiences They presented CatchAChoo case study, the trainer-hunt run for Jimmy Choo using foursquare and Twitter. There is a stat that says 80% of all data online has a geolocational element. In most cases this data isn’t used. The steady rise of smart-phones will make this data more useful to users and easier for people to add to. Trend 2: Increased focus on ROI Clients will increasingly focus on and want proof for the value or ROI of the work they do in social media. Brands should not be using social media unless they have a clear view of the business aims that social media can contribute to. Success and ROI is rarely a measure of how many people ‘Like’ you on Facebook or how many followers you have on Twitter. ROI comes from showing the impact your work has had against real business aims. Trend 3: Consumer resistance to brands on social media Increasing resistance from consumers about brands engaging with them in social media. Facebook is a place where people are often talking and sharing with friends and connections and don’t want to be interrupted by a brand. Better to choose the right place to engage in the right way. If not then consumers may start to filter out brands and brand messages and exert more control over their own experiences online.
    36. 36. USE THE POWER OF THE STATUS MESSAGE. The status message is the social megaphone of the digital generation. All you have to do is type in a few characters and the message is sent to the desktops of all your friends. While we distributed funny videos via e-mail a few years ago, this is done through our status message today.

    41. 41. KEY CONCEPTS FROM ECONOMICS STOCK & FLOW
    42. 42. KEY CONCEPTS FROM ECONOMICS STOCK & FLOW There are two kinds of quantities in the world.
    43. 43. KEY CONCEPTS FROM ECONOMICS STOCK & FLOW There are two kinds of quantities in the world. Stock is a static value: money in the bank, or trees in the forest.
    44. 44. KEY CONCEPTS FROM ECONOMICS STOCK & FLOW There are two kinds of quantities in the world. Stock is a static value: money in the bank, or trees in the forest. Flow is a rate of change: fifteen dollars an hour, or three- thousand tooth­picks a day.
