Its been a while, but I thought I would continue my little series on impressive superyachts. This is one that is very different to the first one (which was the ...
Recent beet.tv interview with me talking about audiences and video. http://www.beet.tv/2013/04/groupm-xaxis.html
Good video from a recent panel I participated on with Rubicon and the other agency trade desks at AdWeek Europe. Well moderated and good discussion. Worth a look. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xydai3_agency-trading-desks-guaranteed-delivery-the-1st-annual-real-time-trading-update-from-europe-s-buy-s_news#.UX5k0LXvtSK
Let me say right upfront that I absolutely loved this book. As someone who has spent 3 months living in Chicago, it was fascinating to read about the history, especially presented in this historical fiction format. Larson intertwines the two separate tales of the Devil and the White City, as well as the separate tales […]
Wow. What a fantastic book. I could not put it down. I’m not really an avid reader of history or war books, but was travelling in Cambodia at the time, and had read lots of books about that country, when I decided a dose of Vietnam war would help with context. I have no idea […]

Firstly, my apologies for the radio silence. I am going to try and put a bit more effort into my blog again. I have recently come across this blog post on the WSJ, and was absolutely fascinated by the absolute honesty. With lines like: “The first iPhone shipped in 2007, and we still don’t have a product […]
Of course I feel lucky that Earth did not get hit by the near-miss asteroid recently. But frankly, I’m also glad that the Canadian lego man with the flag didn’t get wiped out!

If you take a 5, 10, 20 and 50 dollar bill, and fold them in exactly the same way, you get frightening representations of iconic U.S. Government buildings and the trees that surround them, being turned into images of the attack on the […]
