I read this at Guy Kawasaki’s blog today: What do you think would have happened if founders listened to pre-release comments about selling used printers online (eBay), creating the tenth search engine (Google), building personal computers for hobbyists (Apple), enabling people to tell their friends that their cat rolled over [...]
“FireTreToEn” is the new ad for Norwegian bank DnB NOR. It’s made like a movie trailer, with lots of action and some of the most popular actors in Norway, Pia Tjelta and Nicolai Cleve Broch. It’s open ended at leaves with some questions. “We don’t know what happens”, “We don’t know if the woman in [...]
I really thought I had found the worst Powerpoint ever presented by a CEO that should know better. But Seth Godin has found a worthy contestant.
Norwegian crime author Jørgen Jæger wants to kill you in his next book. But only if you want to. And you’re getting paid. Here’s what he says on krimjager.com (in Norwegian): Kjære krimvenn!

Ok, then do. His number is (+1) 602-435-3694. He wants his phone to call 24/7 and I’m sure he will make it. Excellent way to prove that as long as you have something new to tell, people will come to you. His video is embedded below, and here’s also the link in case it doesn’t [...]

They sell shoes, sportswear, bikes, skis, tents, helmets, rackets, balls etc. They have a quite good website at XXL.no where you can buy sports equipment online.

If you have a blog, MySpace, LiveJournal, whatever… DO link to the most stupid ad ever made. And feel free to call the link “most stupid ad ever made”. Here are the slogans that ends the first of two 60-second “masterpieces” (you can see both of them on the page as both QT and WMV). [...]
Nikon has started a new campaign called “Nikon Stunning Gallery”. It works like this: You upload your picture(s) to Flickr and tag them “nikonstunninggallery”. A team from Nikon looks through all pictures tagged “nikonstunninggallery”, picks out the best ones (preferably the ones taken with Nikon cameras I hope!) and publishes then on the Nikon Stunning [...]
Spend an hour watching this (An hour???! Are you nuts? This is the net, 20-seconds chunks is the most we can comprehend).
