The paradox of advertising.
We spend 90% of our money distributing an idea
and 10% on the content of the idea.
Yet we spend 90% of our time and interest on the
content of the idea and 10% on it's distribution.

distribution of money and attention.
What if we didn’t make an
artiﬁcial distinction between
the idea and its distribution?
The idea is the distribution.
The distribution is the idea.

Harnessing the power of the Nike+ platform and its massive online community,
Nike hosted the largest 10K race in history: the Nike+ Human Race.

The question rather becomes : do you want to own or hire
If the idea is interesting, people become the medium.
Brands need to evolve from broadcasting to facilitating.
