Tumblr’s porn ban slams the door on women and other marginalized communities

After graphic images of child sex abuse appeared on Tumblr in November, the app was quickly removed from Apple’s App store (it remained on Google Play). And rightfully so. Child sex abuse imagery has no place online, and Apple was well within its rights to stop distributing an app containing it. Then, in a surprising turn of events, Tumblr invoked the nuclear option, announcing earlier this week that it would ban adult content altogether. In a blog post, CEO Jeff D’Onofrio wrote that “there are ...

Zippo Trademarks Its Signature Click and Celebrates by Going All In on ASMR

Unless you've been living under a rock that no one's lightly scratched their nails on, you've probably heard about ASMR--the oddly tingle-inducing audio technique that creates soft noises some find satisfying and relaxing. Ikea produced a surprisingly great ASMR (short for "autonomous sensory meridian response") video about dorm room decor last year, and several other...

Kris Lindahl Owning a Wingspan Trademark?

If you’ve paid attention to any billboards in the Twin Cities over the last year or so, you’re probably wondering why I haven’t discussed this one yet, knowing my passion for billboard ads: The Kris Lindahl billboard ads — especially this one —  are hard to ignore. They are almost as ubiquitous as a certain iPhone Xs ad. Plus, this one strikes a pretty distinctive wingspan pose. Apparently there is an art or science behind poses for real estate agents, but as far as I can tell from a Google sea...

On your mark. Get Set. Pause.

    Even if it turns out to be a cliché, the first time you hear a phrase it sounds, by definition, original to you. So when a business colleague said he often suffered from “Analysis Paralysis,” I thought it was a great combination of words; ones I had never heard before. Now, if you have been following this blog, you are probably anticipating me going off on a lecture about the danger of clichés and the value of ideas. But actually, to my surprise and yours, I want to make a different point. A...
