23 May 2011

The worn out and trite epitome of simple marketing suggests that “People buy from People”, although a quick google for this phrase suggests it may not have a single author to its credit.

Social media science and statistics will kill our creativity (please retweet)

16 Apr 2011

Yes, the topic of this blog post (and probably the content of the tweet you followed to get here) are completely loaded, horrid, spammy and designed to go after easy traffic.
