"Lately, we’ve been referring to to our social-media-saturated era as “the age of outrage.” I think what’s going on is more complex than that. We don’t get to hide from the truth anymore. We don’t get to hide from the possibility of multiple truths. This is the age of knowing, of Pandora’s box blown wide open. This is the age of being unable, or unwilling, or having fewer opportunities to look away. This is the age of being confronted with what we are willing to do in the name of what we believe."

Useful, especially if you’re building for social media campaigns on a global level.  The vacuum chamber that (can be) the New York Tech scene sometimes gets too wrapped up in the platforms most prevalent in the states.

On Social Media Stardom

“I could preach the gospel of social-media rockstardom, which is that those of us who are actually, like, working, and really doing this stuff for clients and being successful, are not the ones who have 15k followers and a zillion hot photos taken at tech events by Ken Yeung and slick websites and have been to TED, BWE, NME, SXSWi, and Burning Man seven years in a row. We’re too busy. We work 60-hour weeks trying to get results for clients, keep our “utilization” up, and show our bosses that we’re indispensable so we can’t be fired. The last thing we want to do at the end of a twelve-hour day is put on a face full of makeup and some designer outfit we really can’t afford to go hobnob at DigitalLA events with people we don’t like or respect anyway. I want to go home to my cat and my boyfriend and make dinner and read and reboot my brain. “

- From a dear friend who said it better than I ever could. (via Matt Knell)

Great interactive advertising piece for Tipp-Ex, created by french agency Buzzman.  Reminiscent of CP+B’s groundbreaking “Subservient Chicken" work.  Brilliant stuff.

IBM can now provide analytics for how products are seen on social media. They can even analyze for emoticons :)

This is pretty dope.  (via lukrative)

Katy Kelley

Marinated in NPR, sauteed in Hip Hop, garnished lightly with Kung-Fu movies, washed down with a Guinness and served with a side order of cleverness. Has been described as “Mary Tyler Moore meets Pee-Wee Herman”.

Delightfully ambiguous with a dollop of intellect. Chilling in Brooklyn, NY.
