Antropoloģisks skats uz šodienas politisko un masu manipulāciju. Tai skaitā (un jo īpaši) par to, kā sākt karus un konfliktus. Vai atpazīt sācējus. Mājās un kaimiņos.

The Troll Hunters.

A group of journalists and researchers wade into ugly corners of the Internet to expose racists, creeps, and hypocrites.

Have they gone too far?

When Abbott stepped down in 1998, he pointed to the keys of running a great agency:

"You care about two things. You care about quality--in everything you do. From the chairs in reception, to the way you answer a phone, to a piece of typography, to the ideas you have, to the research you put your name to, to the meetings you hold, to the way you hang a picture, to the way you crop a photograph or write a line.

Quality is always possible and always under threat, but if you don’t seek and defend it you won’t be satisfied and you won’t be happy.

The second thing you must care about?
That’s easy. It’s each other."
The founder of AMV BBDO formerly Abbott Mead Vickers has died at the age of 75.

If traditional advertising agencies want to compete with the likes of Google, they will have to innovate, and innovation isn't usually a matter of old, white men making deals on Parisian rooftops
The merger of two advertising giants into the world's largest advertising company is likely to stifle competition and creativity

Sakarā ar kursa gatavošanu ir mazliet aizķērušās nākošās divas sērijas. Ļoti ceru, ka nākošnedēļ vismaz pirmo izdosies nopublicēt. Ar 4-5 vēsturiskajām (pamatu pamati)
