Watch: A Robot May Have Your Job By 2035

Forty percent of you will be "robo-replaced" by the year 2035, according to Tiana B. Holt, principal at Faith Popcorn's BrainReserve, citing an Oxford University study. Holt, a panelist at Ad Age's Next Conference, advises that rather than fear this, people should make peace with technology as "the evolution of humanity."In addition, Holt says that marketers are so focused on millennials that they are missing the boat with 50-plus consumers, who "control most of the wealth," but "we just want to...

Sorpa: Fangelsi

Sorpa: Fangelsi This is a campaign called Sorpanos for a waste management company called Sorpa (Trashy). This is a follow up campaign that won gold in Iceland two years ago. The characters in Sorpa's "Sorpanos“ campaign are a shady bunch. Quite possibly criminals but we never actually see them doing anything illegal. Instead we focus on their ambition in the field of recycling and sorting waste. The rest is up to the viewer's imagination. ...

There are pros and cons to everywhere

Kim and I moved to our new home in West Linn on July 1st. Although we’re only 8.5 miles (and about twenty minutes) from the condo we owned in Portland, I haven’t been back to our former neighborhood since we moved. Yesterday, I decided to spend a few hours hanging out at some of my old haunts. I stopped at the “pot shop” to pick up some sleeping aids. I bought Tally new chew sticks from the pet store. I spent half an hour browsing at the used book store for sci-fi classics. And I stopped to drin...

7 Ways to Make Reading Your Blog a More Positive Experience for Blind Readers

It may come as a surprise to some people that blind people read blogs, but in the age of visual information, blogs can be a great source of information for blind people, because they don’t rely on images as much as social media sites such as Instagram and Pinterest. For example, I have software on my laptop that reads the text of the webpage aloud to me. Other people use a device that makes the words appear in a series of dots (known as Braille) on a raised display, whereas others have some vis...

MediaLink's Chief Transformation Officer should know a thing or two about transforming. At Ad Age's Next conference today, Dana Anderson advises marketers and agencies to avoid freezing up when it comes to innovation, and instead just do it."The stakes feel so high that people do not want to animate on big-scale stuff, so they do pilots and go slow," she says. But now is not the time to hang back, she says. "If your partners aren't innovating, take the lead and you do it." Continue reading at A...
