  • Quarter final super rugby and the stadium looks pretty empty. Sad state of super rugby in AU,
  • Agree with Mark - don't get it. Don't need to be reminded that my sandwich was a beauty chook. ,
  • I just published “The Cannes Conundrum” ,
  • Church in London has a little cafe in the entrance serving Allpress coffee. How good is that. God and coffee to go. ,
  • That flight to London is one epic trip. Thanks for an enjoyable flight.,
  • Must read for all marketers... ,
  • ... instead correlate TV to commercial outcomes, not online viewing ,
  • ... but buying TV so people watch you on YouTube while trying to sell Tide... that's more than strange ... ,
  • Another reason TV is so important a part of the Mix - spillover into online engagement ... ,
  • Well that's a change. Might be better to focus on the tech stuff though. And the need for lots of it. ,
  • Some beautiful coffee kit here... ,
  • Further evidence that the IRB are nearly as out of touch with rugby performance as the ARU ,
  • Acquisition is important for growth... But if its is just replacing loss, it isn’t growth – it’s just churn .. ,

Journalists In China…

It’s great reading Dan’s blogs from China. I recently spent a couple of weeks there with customers, media, and analysts. The comments here are really worth a read – especially those from his students.

Couple of observations from my last trip.

1. plenty of women tech journalists – much more than I encounter in the US. And, much like here, no discernible difference in aggressiveness or style. They all want a story and they want it before their competitors.

2. all the journalists are savvy to the big issues and don’t shy from the tough questions.

3. they have a keen sense of history – much more so than in the US. It feels like they are doing much deeper research – and they constantly refer back to notes from the last interview…

4. they’re quick to give competitors a call prior to any interview… a couple were armed with the same set of questions from the same competitor.

Like Dan I found the broadband in China a tad slow – but free, as it is in most places, is great. Moreover, wireless coverage is fantastic and high-quality. Much better than in Silicon Valley. Was also cool to step off the plane and have email flooding into my Blackberry. So, we’re one-all in this respect.
