Check out our new consumer facing  #BigData  tool. It uses over a billion REAL (but de-identified) bank transactions to help you explore & benchmark your spending with peers - both locally and nationally [Australia].  We're really excited to be able to safely give the value of big data back to the people who created it :)   #UBank   #PeopleLikeU  
I just found out what people like me are doing. You can too!

Love this. Despite the trademark infringement, if this were my game, I'd be pretty darned pleased to know that it was loved so much they made real-life version!

Entertainment and Retail industries get higher CTR on mobile ads vs web ads: perhaps related to the activities the consumer is taking part in whilst mobile?

Interesting read. And to the annoyance of those around me, I'm one of the folk that didn't give up the pre-school obsession with 'Why? ...but why? ...um, why?' :)

Hmm! Very good read, and worrying for the US (and potentially here).
Asking why has been part of my daily routine for as long as I can remember, hence days lost forever in Wikipedia.

I'm going to say I have to disagree with this throw-away statement though:
One likely culprit is the number of hours kids now spend in front of the TV and playing videogames rather than engaging in creative activities.

TV? Sure, science shows that your brain does less when watching TV than it does when sleeping.

Videogames? Not so much. Even a lot of the seemingly monotonous violent shooters tend to encourage creative problem solving. Medical researches wouldn't be creating game-like representations of unsolved problems if they didn't recognise the kind of thinking that it promotes, and thinker that it attracts.

Can't see it working everywhere in the world but I absolutely love how a challenge that many would respond "not possible", went under the 'what if' knife, had consumer behaviours watched, identified the consumers challenge and solved the problem with both the consumer and the business in mind. Thoroughly awesome!

Hmm, interesting ad. Feels like a Hahn Superdry ad trying to sell a 'serious' message about sanitary towels. What do you think?

Redefining the Status Quo
Introduction

"I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter" - Walt Disney

Gotta love the complexity and power of the human mind, and the uniqueness of every one who walks this earth. So much opportunity, so much potential ...so little time as an individual to grasp and share it all!

From my very first experience, communicating to a complete stranger over my school's IRC in 1988, I was exhilarated by the unfathomable potential of the internet in its ability to globally connect the niche en masse, finally igniting the power of human difference rather than isolating it, and as a result, accelerating progress towards our possibility.

It was that vision that had me hooked.

In 1995 (pre-Google -- gasp!), I wed passion with profession by joining the UK's largest internet service provider, CompuServe Interactive; and I remain happily married to the cause of innovation and possibility realisation almost 20 years later.

Put my 2012 KX250f in for valve clearance check and fork seals. These guys are not your usual bunch of grease monkeys. Great communication and technical advise, they talk me through the hole process and what required doing on my bike. Paid exactly what they quoted.
