The great E.O.Wilson once said:
“The real problem of humanity is the following: we have paleolithic emotions; medieval institutions; and god-like technology”
In short, we’re cavemen who think we’re supermen.
No wonder the everything’s so bafflingly screwed up.
And there’s so much posturing, conjecture and just plain bullshit out there that it’s difficult to know what the hell’s actually going on.
So this is an attempt to make sense of some of the interesting things that are happening at the intersection of culture, technology and communications.
It’s got a bit of a marketing slant to it because, in my spare time, I’m a brand strategist – ex Wieden + Kennedy, now working independently as founder and CSO of Untapped Strategy, a consultancy that helps brands turn problems into possibility.
