Overpaid manbaby technologist Robert Scoble, famous for unapologetically wearing a face-mounted camera into public bathrooms, has outdone himself: as evidence that Google's face computers will be a hit, he recorded himself talking to a crew of eager high school girls.

+Michael Babcock  I don't subscribe to the modern Cancer called Oversharing just because it suits the Business Plan of Google and other Companies.

This is what should happen to all the ignorant hipster youngsters in Australia for their stupidity, Silicon Valley worship, and political apathy. It would cure unemployment problems quite handsomely.

Fortunately for the ignorant, we don't actually let this kind of thing happen at all, and we don't run usually run ads like this: it's a bad taste spoof that somehow made its way into contention. Grumpy old men like me working in advertising?

There is a back-story, though, about kids travelling in Asia and getting killed because they just don't understand nobody will hold their hands in countries like Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam or Thailand.

Sean Guillory and I don't agree on everything (he's much more economically left-wing than I am, and rather more pessimistic about where Russia is heading) but he's extremely knowledgeable, an excellent writer, and someone and whose opinions deserve to be taken seriously. He recently wrote a truly outstanding piece that [...]

Why do people write this kind of comparisons:

As with any advertising, getting a WTF reaction or going viral doesn't necessarily equal getting the message across. If this ad was selling a product, the success of it could have been measured by tracking a change in sales. But, as this one sells an idea of staying in school, tracking its effectiveness would be a challenge. I think today's teenager's reaction to this would be "Did you see that awesome new video, where those kids blow up and shit?" rather than "Did you see this new cautionary video, we better not skip school".

Divert YOUR Course

good, quite "authentic" (as far as I can tell anyway) Indian food... (service is very helpful and very friendly too - once they recognise me and accept the fact that one can order and eat TWO lamb vindaloos at one lunch... ;))
