A Japanese TV vignette from 1997 featuring the dons of Japanese streetwear Jun Watanabe and Nigo.

A classic example of progress not being better. Tobias Van Schneider revisited Dieter Rams ten principles of good design and bastardise it with current digital design practices

A half hour edit of George Michael’s Fast Love. It reminded me of the way DJs and producers used to make extended edits of disco records to keep the dance floors moving. That was the origin of the 12″ single. It’s truly epic check it out

Louis Vuitton have been on fire recently. Their Master collaboration with Jeff Koons pokes fun at classic art. And then there is the collab collection with Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Fragment Design

Really nice piece of augmented reality marketing with a virtual cosmetics app to sell make-up

Links of the day | 在网上找到

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Nicky Siano on disco, drugs and DJing at Studio 54 | The Vinyl Factory

ESPN cuts familiar faces in major layoff – CNN – I wonder when this will trickle down to sports rights payments

Government ‘blocked’ from accessing Twitter data to help spot terrorist plots | Telegraph – Twitter pushed back against the surveillance state

Xiaomi phones won’t be heading towards the US anytime soon | Gizchina – not terribly surprising due to not having a patent fence to play rough with other vendors and the difficulties of adapting complex service offerings for US market from Chinese market

Andy Lau teams up with Tencent and Fox for Chinese financial drama | Marketing Interactive – interesting evolution of the Hong Kong TV and film industry

adidas and LPD Are Still Battling Over Failed Collaboration | The Fashion Law – this looks like an interesting collab gone bad

Why has the ubiquity of tech turned us all into divas? | Canvas8 – impatience, desire of immediate gratification

LVMH to Buy Christian Dior in $13 Billion Deal | BoF – raising the money through an expanded public offering….

China wants to restrict WTO rules on dumping, unfair subsidies | SCMP – I am sure they do, as they are most often on the receiving end of penalties

Now you can buy TV ads through Google’s DoubleClick | TechCrunch – this could sting agencies (cough cough WPP) who invested in an ad tech technology stack

Three kingdoms, two empires: China’s internet giants go global | The Economistwith the exception of political censorship, the internet sector in China is lightly regulated. Facebook, Apple and Google, in contrast, face increasing scrutiny. Chinese internet firms can achieve market domination of a sort that would attract close attention in other markets

Why is Foxconn Pushing Sharp back into the Smartphone Market so Aggressively? – Patently Apple – it would put a lot of pressure on Huawei

Barnzley Armitage and the bootleg Chanel tees – DisneyRollerGirl – snide t-shirts that accessorised the whole Buffalo feel of i-D magazine’s famous ‘Happy’ issue

Pathway into Cyber Crime | UK National Crime Agency Intelligence Assessment – more about kudos and moral / political issues (secrecy etc etc). Interesting that its being pulled into Prevent programme

Nothing new in UK Govt cyber security survey – Enterprise Timesin a blow for the government only 4% referred to Government and public sector sources. This is disappointing given the effort the UK Government has spent promoting cyber security

Barnzley Armitage and the Lost Art of Streetwear — the culture crush – great interview with the legendary stylist

I’ve been a bit quiet

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I’ve been a bit quiet due to work and life intervening.  Alongside my work in looking at strategy through a data-centric lens I have also taken on a content strategy role on a project.  This isn’t about:

  • Coming up with a few social ideas
  • Editorial direction

But a much wider approach that takes a systems approach to content. What it is, where should it be and how it should be refreshed. With this in mind I can thoroughly recommend The Content Strategy Toolkit: Methods, Guidelines, and Templates for Getting Content Right by Meghan Casey.

Meghan also provides a set of downloadable template to make your life even easier. I found the book relatively easy to digest but still have it about as a reference book on my current project.

I can also recommend the current British Museum exhibition: The American Dream – pop to the present. I really liked the works from the NASA art programme by Robert Rauschenberg that celebrated the Apollo programme.
