I am neither brave nor stupid enough to suggest that this replace the traditional and time tested marketing mix thinking, but the old framework doesn't embrace for digital as the fundamental and does not allow in its teaching digital first.

One-upmanship: The Game We All Play But Hate to Admit It

Not wishing to brag or anything, but I have a friend who works for a large investment bank. He recently snapchatted me a picture of his new Rolex (I assume time was of the essence when he felt compelled to broadcast the purchase). Aged 23, he appears to have decided the time was right to visit a Mayfair dealer and purchase a vintage timepiece with some of his £70,000 plus salary.

I Wear a Bib With Pride

I can either resent what I need or embrace them with a pride for understanding who I am. Why should I compromise what is useful to me because society is uncomfortable that the image the equipment I need offers, or that many professionals may be worried about the illusion of infantilism...

The sun is shining in Amsterdam. It's warming up to be a hot weekend in the city of cycling, canals and clogs. But really this heat, this heightened atmosphere and fun-loving spirit have nothing to do with the heat wave's return. It's all because Pride is coming to town.

Queerying Queer

Nearly every time I write an article (or talk on the radio) about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues, someone then contacts me to complain about my employment of the word "queer". Since summer is the season for LGBT(Q!) pride events, it seems like the ideal time to que(e)ry the term "queer", and to think about why it seems to be a word that divides opinion.

Vladimir Putin, The Czar of Homophobia

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, has signed into law the new homophobic Bill that criminalises gay freedom of expression. The adoption of children by foreign same-sex couples has also been banned and gay organisations that receive financial donations from overseas are being fined as 'foreign agents'. These are the latest examples of an escalating trend towards homophobic repression in Russia...

'Where's the Straight Pride? It's Not Fair!'

"Where's the straight Pride? Why do the gays get a special day to themselves? It's not fair." If I had a pound for every time I was asked that question, well, I'd have quite a few pounds... Straight Pride is taken for granted every single day. It's invisible, unshocking, quietly permeating everyday norms.

Love Alive in Art: Love Under the Banner of Patriotism

Patriotic Love has touched my life in profound ways. I grew up in the shadow of a tremendous giant, the Second World War. My childhood was cast into its darkness; it was only through persistence that I survived and was able to bloom. It was Patriotic Love that took the lives of family members and friends, those who fought in battle and those who were lost as casualties.

Would the frequently toxic nature of that crowd/team relationship not be improved if the players were really playing for the shirt and the cap, and nothing else?

Westminster Council and the End of World Pride?

Soho, as many of its residents will enthusiastically attest, is made what it is by its vibrant nightlife culture and thriving LGBT community. It would be counterproductive to have an overseeing institution which does not support this.

Union Jack Cushions Reduced - Nationalism Discontinued?

Scottee | Posted 12.08.2012 | UK Lifestyle

Is the future of our flag in jeopardy? Has our flag become a logo that flogs cheap apparel during times of nationalism decided by marketing teams? If Scotland gain independence do we need to change the flag?

When he was at that peak, defeat was not merely a stranger to Emelianenko, it seemed an impossibility for him.
