So many Mondays

In 2002, the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers—now known as PwC—rebranded its consulting business. The move wasn’t entirely voluntary: The US Congress had just passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in response to the accounting scandals of the previous few years (Enron, WorldCom, et al.), and firms like PwC were feeling the heat. PwC worked with a global branding agency, Wolff Olins, and in June 2002 announced the consulting business’s new name: Monday. It was meant to suggest “a fresh start,” spo...

Missing Las Vegas yet? CES has been doing its best to replicate the aura of deal-making and industry camaraderie that its annual in-person event is famous for, but there’s no denying it is not the same; your home office is just not a cavernous convention hall with a 50-foot screen, and no matter how well-stocked your fridge is, it probably can’t compare to the Bellagio buffet. One thing this year’s all-digital CES is not lacking, however, is innovation. With 200 sessions and 1,800 industry-le...
