The ocean’s content strategy

Featured photo by Joel Magalnick Annie Crawley didn’t grow up near an ocean. The Chicago native had Lake Michigan just a few miles from her home in the city’s working-class Northwest side, but the first time she put on a scuba suit, in her early 20s, something shifted inside her. Show More Summary

Service for a Price: Most Brands Take a Shortsighted Approach to Customer Care

3 days agoMedia / New Media : Screenwerk

Customer service is one of my “issues.” Despite lots of data showing its importance to brands and marketers, it remains elusive — most customer service experiences (on the phone or in stores) are mediocre to bad.

For the last several years, they’ve been much quieter about their mind-disruption project. I sense that a soldier in Google’s flak army warned them that in voicing their fantasies they risked weirding people […]

Context collapse and context restoration

2 weeks agoMedia / New Media : Rough Type

Facebook has a problem. Its members aren’t sharing as much as they used to. At least they’re not sharing first-hand the way they used to. Instead of posting notices about what they’re doing or thinking, or where they are, or whom they’re hanging out with, they’re just recycling second-hand stuff — news stories, songs, other people’s photos or […]
