  • What an incredible opportunity we're faced with.
  • The internet is the most measurable communications channel there is.
  • It’s also fast becoming adisconnected channel
  • Not in the sense of... unconnected
  • No, in fact we've never been so connected
  • We wake in the morning,switch on our iPhones
  • have a quick check on our emails.
  • At the breakfast table we'll read the news
  • or update our Facebook status
  • On the way to work we'll download a podcast…
  • or watch the latest video news
  • At work we'll browse our favourite blogs,use Skype or IM.
  • Maybe at lunch we'll buysome stuff online
  • During the afternoon we might tweet about our day
  • On the way home, we'll scroll through our favourite RSS feeds
  • And then at home we might answer a few emails,
  • watch that YouTube video our crazy friend sent us (we all have one)
  • and then maybe we'll watch a movie ordered online.
  • All of this happened across multiple screens
  • All of this was fully connected
  • But all of this was disconnected
  • Disconnected from a single screen
  • Consumers today are demanding that the internet come to them
  • not them to their screens.
