Agnes Nairn on Consumer Kids at TedX Ghent – pretty depressing topic, but well delivered and full of shockers like: ‘Kids can spontaneously recall 200 different brands before they get to school.’ Worth a watch.
Bet4Balls.com – claimed to be the UK’s first charity betting website, will give £5 to charity for every bet of £5 or more, with £100,000 target. You couldn’t make it up.
Poverty Porn – A great piece on development images and messages, with some discussion of research into how Ugandan people perceive their portrayal in the Western media.
Conscious Capitalism – A fantastic reflection on TOMS charitable work and the consquences of charities embracing a business model that links progressive social action to consumer spending.
Russell Brand on revolution – In case you missed it, Brand’s editorial in the New Statesman. It’s not all roses (especially his gender politics), but it’s a good read: “We require a change that is beyond the narrow, prescriptive parameters of the current debate, outside the fortress of our current system. A system predicated on aspects of our nature that are dangerous when systemic: greed, selfishness and fear. These are old, dead ideas.”
Peak Advertising – when ads become more and more useless. A terrifying, exciting and short read.
