My small nuggets of wisdom; “Naporaisms”

Difference between a need and a want.

Need is a want driven to obsession.

A media futurist on the future of Social Media

I stumbled across this talk by Gerd Leonhard while looking for inspiration on how our future will change thanks to the role that social media play’s in our current daily lives. He has some very interesting views and opinions on how we, as a society, will change the way we communicate, receive information, interact with each other, and trade in the near future. He covers a wide range of topics, from the music industry, television, communication, social behavior, public relation, marketing, and more. It’s worth a look.

A few musical numbers from yours truly

If I feel the urge and have some spare time, I like to make beats.

These two came about while being really inspired by a load of great music coming from L.A., U.K., and France. At the time, their music made me feel that one can really achieve and do something special. With that in my mind, I decided to make these, rather than my university assignments. It’s pretty much a hurrah-optimistic form of procrastination…

Enjoy!

The Seven Blunders of the World – Mohandas Gandhi

Wealth without work

Pleasure without conscience

Knowledge without character

Commerce without humanity

Worship without sacrifice

Politics without principle

Rights without responsibilities

It’s nice to be suprised…

I want to share a very positive brand experience that I encountered the other day. I’m a keen vinyl collector (a physical music collection is so much better than a whole hard drive of mp3’s, but that’s another story) and as any collector knows, missing out on an item is one of the most frustrating things that can happen to you – a collection is not complete if you do not have the full set of whatever it is that you collect. So, to make sure I will get my hands on the new Jneiro Jarel EP, I emailed the online store that I usually make my purchases with, Bleep.com.

The response I got was more than expected; not only did they offer to email me when they receive the vinyl in stock, they also thanked me for my loyalty (see below).

Very well played Bleep – you got yourself one happy customer.
