The vacation time is over, and now it's time to settle in to the new gig.
Thanks again to everyone that left a note below, it was great to hear from you all.
Just because I haven't been posting, it doesn't mean that I haven't been lurking. There have been some fantastic posts over the last week or so.
Here are some favourites:
Learning from Lennon - wicked post about music and brand thinking, which I have to come back to on a full post, as it relates directly to DJ'ing and the use of music to move people, to get them to feel a certain way. Make sure to check out John Grant's comments as well, brilliant.
Philosophy is Pointless - Well it isn't really, and this post by Wayne at Idea Festival reminds us why. Will have to dig out my degree again.
Review of Synthetic Worlds: The Business and Culture of Online Games - The book sounds great, of interest to anyone wanting to learn more about MMORPGs
Post on Creativity by John Grant - But culture seems to have some sort of homeostatic principle where stuff that answers needs becomes cultural favoured quick
The Little Girl Giant - First comes the great idea, or something truly interesting, then the different components can be put together. Good thinking.
Pit Stop for Doctors - Long live the cross-pollinator
Faris: Web Trends - Looking to the future
Definition of Art, Tennis and Advertising -His definition of art is especially insightful: "To make something exceptional...to produce out-of-the-ordinary reactions." And I can't help thinking, is this the aim of advertising? If not, should it be?
Top 10 Presentations - It's all about the presentation
Simplicity and Complexity - This comes from a weblog new to me, Comfortable Disorientation, and it's great.
Mark's review of The Innovator's Solution - Self-explanatory :)
LonelyGirl15 Mystery - Trying to make sense of it all, thanks AKI SYSTEMS 2600. Maybe one day I can actually sit through an entire clip without snoozing.
