Why Advertising Agencies Rule

Posted · 5 Comments

Embrace Experience. Breath Innovation. Produce Intimately. Sure the world has changed. But I think it’s time to realize that we haven’t changed much. A couple of years ago I was one of the people running around screaming that the world was coming to an end, that the traditional advertising agency model was over and that […]

Here Comes The Social Internet Bank!

Posted · 7 Comments

Money is important to us. Control over our life situation is too. But then, how can we possibly accept Internet banks as they are today. How can we possibly think that it’s okay to, say, not be able to get a visual overview analysis of our expenses and incomes? How can we possibly put up […]

Which Presentation Software/Service Rocks, and Why?

Posted · 2 Comments

Just found a “new” bus going door to door from my Sofo apartment to my Noho office. Perfect! Especially considering this mornings blizzard. (Ok. I’m exaggerating). Today is presentation day, and game days are my favorite days. Especially when you know that the keynote presentation on your MBP humbly kicks ass! Today is one of […]

We may have some exciting news in store for you for tomorrow, so today is a non-writing-all-working day. Instead I’ll show you my favorite clip from my favorite sport, which was posted on my favorite web service by one of my favorite tweeps. Enjoy.

Is Spotify the Darth Vader of Music?

Posted · 14 Comments

As Spotify launched their iPhone app, the crowd cheered. The talented SEO-expert (and comedian) Simon Sundén publishes the follwing graph of Spotify Premium sales that went viral amongst us nerds. Half us us thought is was true, and who knows, it may be. But even if this graphic joke isn’t true, it illustrates something quiet […]

Q&A From The BBH Labs Post on Honesty

Posted · 2 Comments

Yesterday, BBH Labs wrote an interesting post commenting on some of my thoughts on internet transparency and gossip. The post itself, as well as the comments, are well worth a read. Since it’s one of my favorite topics, I naturally wanted in on the discussion myself, but as I started writing a comment on their […]

What the World Will Look Like in 25 Years

When I went to ad-school I felt that the school was in many respects molding people into replicas of what ad-people were supposed to be. Now I feel that this is perhaps about to change. The other day I got interview questions from Hyper Island regarding digital trends, and today I got another question from […]

This morning I spoke at Esomar WM3 – an amazing event with 150 delegates from 30 countries. After the event I had the privelege to chat with people from all around the globe from China, to USA, to Italy, to Switzerland, Slovenia, to Iran and beyond. Fantastic. I’m already looking forward seeing these people and […]

Google’s New Move to Kill Facebook

Like Picasso, I paint in periods. While he had his periods like blue and pink, I have periods like the recent one on copyright policy, certain internet technologies, and psychology. If you are a long time reader of this blog, you might remember my Open Social and my Friend Connect periods. These are very exciting […]

Checkmate. Spofity Opens Up API To Developers.

Posted · 2 Comments

Finally it happened. Spotify released libspotify, thereby making it possible to develop third party applications to interact with the Spotify platform. I know we’ve all been talking about it since the start, and that it has been a long time ambition, but we were never quite sure if they would make the move or when. […]

Telenor To Become Hero Of Internet Liberals?

Posted · Add Comment

The mobile telephony operator Telenor are being threatened by IFPI that they’re going to be taken to court if they don’t block The Pirate Bay for their customers. I guess taking TPB themselves to court is one thing (though counter productive), but taking Telenor to court? It will be interesting to see how far IFPI […]

Is This The New Music Industry?

Posted · 3 Comments

I‘m not so sure record labels have a role anymore though. Artists need production, distribution and marketing. Production is cheap and easy today. Perhaps this “new production” will change the sound in some direction, but just like there is a sound of the 70’s for instance, this will be the sound of today. Distribution will […]
