hello there Marc. you dont know me at all my name is Kim Lange from Copenhagen Denmark, I picked you out for a Little advise, hoping that maybee you will be able to help me......
I am looking for a friend Danish girrl (woman) that moved to Canada in 1979 or 1980, I dont remember excact the year, but I helped her my self, I will give you short info....
Her name is (or was Britta Rosengren Rasmussen) I had a relationship to her, but thats not the reason, I despite eveything dont want contact because of that, but we are a lot of people WHO really misses her here in Denmark, I know that she started out as au-pair I believe or as I remember it was in Toronto, but then I talked to her later and she should start up as a stewardesss in a Airline but I dont remember which one.......
Marc I dont expect that you will write me back telling me that you know her....... but its a Little Lucky punch, if you might be able to tell me maybee how to search for her, in Canada I will be very happy....

Kodak was consistent, but was entirely irrelevant so their consistency had no value. Thanks to  +marc shillum for a fascinating interview of branding in the digital age

Thanks +Eliot Frick for sharing your incredible insights on building human brands!
Like old organizational design theory, panopticons drive efficiency but eliminate creativity and dehumanize companies. Your company CAN be different.
