Great post Tomi.

As a testament to the above, I personally spend most of every day being quizzed by companies all over the world about what Blyk means and how it will play a part in the future of 'advertising' (including the re-definition of it).

The cynics will always be around though - in fact, here in Tel Aviv I recently enjoyed a conversation with someone who, back in 1999, laughed at a bunch of students who thought they were going to 'download the entire internet and index it'.

The main joke being, these students had set up camp in a garage. A garage??!??! versus big fat office blocks with air con and personal assistants for the personal assistants.

NOBODY - however wise, however rich, however experienced, can account for instances of black swans....and, thank God, disruption grows in the dust cloud of speculation, replacing the competant with their arch-enemy; CHANGE.

Hi Tomi,

Great analysis and interesting numbers. So segmentation and profiling is the key to black gold, isn't it?

Great recap, I can’t even believe you were able to write that.I got so much anxiety just watching that and I thought I was the only one who had unnatural rage/hate for Kelly, glad I’m not the only one, as I was getting concerned. These women show that you can age without maturing.

The new brand of clothes are nothing like the old one. Right now, almost everything is done in different countries and then imported to the United States to be sold to consumers.
