Five for Friday | 五日(星期五) | 금요일에 다섯 가지

Things that made my day this week:

Naomi Wu on the nascent open source culture developing in China. It isn’t just about China taking anymore but contributing.

Ari Saal Forman’s Menthol 10s took a swipe at corporate culture and big tobacco.

The ambiguous nature of the male host business in Japan is highlighted in this interview. The client interview section is insane, an 18 year old having $100,000 to spend on drinks in a nightclub – for some people the bubble economy years of late 1980s Japan has never gone away.

A people’s history of computing in the US.

It’s the time of the year when 2019 consumer trends are trotted out.  JWT(WundermanThompson) have 100 trends. Trendwatching thankfully have just five.
