We tend to spend a lot of time outside and on-the-go, getting from one place to the next. It's no surprise, then, that the average global consumer is exposed to various Digital Out of Home Media for 14 minutes per week, and investments in the space are expected to grow 14.2% year-over-year between 2011 - 2017.

Facebook announced a new safety initiative today. The social network is partnering with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to send AMBER Alerts for missing children to its community of users.

The alerts, which will be sent to both the mobile and web versions of Facebook, will include a photograph and description of the missing child, plus any information about the suspected abductor. They will appear in your News Feed, but won’t trigger any smartphone notifications.

Here we are enmeshed in the World of Work in 2015. Among the many facets of this new way of working: a not-always smooth shift from officemates to virtually connected nomads who communicate and work via all sorts of virtual channels: social, mobile and video. A statistic that’s been reverberating [...]

Thanks Google, I just spent $1500 on the Glass project you've shut down, without a word on whether it's about to become a useless tangle of metal on my face.

Introduction
No business can really say that they stay on top of all technology and consumer developments. As much as you are in command of your core product chances are that your marketing strategy does not reach today's consumer anymore. 

This is where we come in. As a team of business planners, technologists and creative thinkers we help companies to understand how the platforms and tools consumers use have changed and help them adjusting their existing business models to survive in the future.

Simply put, we are organizing the world of digital for businesses small or large and provide a roadmap for the future of consumer behaviour. We provide access to talent and technologies to create brand experiences that lead to lasting consumer relationships.

I got married here. It was the most wonderful day of my life. Most beautiful sunsets.

Worst DMV experience. Ever! Ever! Ever! Meet Rick the security guard who told me that I am not supposed to help my wife with her paperwork. In fact, Rick threw me out of the building and when I asked to speak to his supervisor he told that he was the supervisor but if I'd not leave the building he'd get me arrested. After leaving the building and waiting outside for my wife they apparently told her that they would not process foreigners on the weekend.... which was total BS. After speaking to him again and clarifying the situation he insisted again that I'd leave the building again. About ten minutes later I was called back in - this time a by a DMV employee who needed my signature. To be honest, this guy was very helpful, professional and apparently very embarrassed about the entire situation. My wife finally got her license. I have never seen a more rude and disrespectful behavior. This is something I'd even would not expect in a third world country. Try to avoid this place unless under any circumstances.
