When busted with shaving cream in my hand luggage by super-nice security officer Mari Elsa at Helsinki airport I learned that cake too classifies as a liquid. Who knew?

Finally the media agency industry (top contender for most deserving serious disruption) is being digitally challenged. Go forth, Blackwood Seven!
The relationship between traditional media agencies and marketers couldn’t be more strained, with concerns rife over agencies not being upfront about how much money they’re making from marketers. It is against this backdrop that a Danish media agency that is not financially dependent on how much an advertiser spends because it takes a fixed monthly fee is poised to launch in the UK following successful debuts in Germany and the US.

I love digital. But I will never stop reading quality newspapers and magazines (on paper/linearly). Professional editors are far superior to myself or any social media algorithm.
Social media has swallowed the news – threatening the funding of public-interest reporting and ushering in an era when everyone has their own facts. But the consequences go far beyond journalism

Finally! A major pay-for-performance contract in the advertising industry. More companies should follow suit.

Excellent food, good, attentive service and great wine suggestions. Not a cheap meal, but great value nonetheless.
