Interesting to see an agency come out with a technology platform.

What's up with the fact that you can't hyperlink text in Google+, Facebook, etc.? Hyperlinking was invented in the sixties and it's been around in its current form since Mosaic debuted in 1993. I doubt Goog and FB forgot this foundational aspect of the Internet. Anyone know the rational?

I like to be a contrarian, so I thought I'd pen something about Nokia on the day of the iPhone debut. Personally think that Nokia and Microsoft are going to do quite well in the long run, if for no other reason than the fact that there are few other places Apple could go but down from where it is now. The first crack in Apples Cement started to show through today with the iPhone 5 map app fiasco, which Nokia cleverly responded to. The simple fact is that Apple is just not that good at making software. Anyone who has tried to be productive in iWork or manage their images in iPhoto should know this. Even the exulted iTunes is pretty clunky.

Apple's mediocre software chops have been masked by it's insanely great design and hardware capabilities and a series of smart partnerships like the original maps partnership with Google. Even the very intelligent choice to adopt a Linux based operating system shows that Apple doesn't really do software. It’s just not their focus. Apple does the integration of software and hardware beautifully, but Microsoft and Google clearly beat Apple on the software side. Apple should remember that its many partnerships like Google Maps on the iPhone--despite the downsides--allow Apple to focus on what it does best, which is melding hardware with the software. No company or person can be a master of everything. It’s a hard and important lesson, one that I’m still learning.

"When we meet Don Draper, he is sitting alone in an upholstered booth at a smoke-filled, Art Deco-appointed nightclub, sipping an old-fashioned from a rocks glass and scribbling ideas for the Lucky Strike cigarettes account on a cocktail napkin." -Mad Men's Manhattan: The Insider's Guide

The actual location is the Lenox Lounge, just up the street, which always seems to stay the same despite the fact that everything around it is changing at a furious pace -- just like most of Harlem these days.

Thanks for the intel Josh. I enjoyed our drink there last week.

Do you ever look back at old photos and think of what was? In this Chernobyl montage you can still sense the ghosts of those working frantic at the helm as the reactor spun out of control and those that left everything to get out.

I expect people will be crawling over each other to invest after the Facebook IPO. The S-1 letter has lots of interesting names and info--$1 billion in net income for 2011. A really good read for a financial doc. It will be interesting to see whether Facebook can match the expectations that will come along with its new, and likely obscenely high, valuation.

Happy New Year from Zuzu, Lydia, and Adam! Thank you Francis for the wonderful photo.

What Makes You Want to Put More Money into the Machine?

"When you look up and you see that it’s a hit and that you’re going to get paid off, it’s a tingling from my toes on up to the top of my head that comes into my body. That’s what makes me want to put more money into the machines."

-From HBS Case, "Harrah's Entertainment Inc."

The impression of scarcity creates demand. Some rules of human nature are universal. What else can explain Method's "Limited Edition" dish soap? Yes, dish soap!
