Dust Devil: Hello Engine’s Triumph TR6 desert sled

Hayden Roberts once quipped that when he moved from England to California in the early 2000s, it was “about 40 years too late.” His work testifies to that: as Hello Engine, he builds neat vintage Triumphs that look like they were transplanted straight from the 60s. And like many of the desert sleds from that golden age, his Triumphs are never stock under the hood. His latest project is this 1960-something Triumph TR6. And we use that designation loosely, because, as usual, Hayden pieced it to...

At last, printed menus and a chance to wear smoky eyeshadow again | Grace Dent on restaurants

‘Restaurants are back, back, back, so I booked breakfast to see off the misery of the past year’In the happy run-up to last Monday’s grand reopening of restaurants and pubs, a fleck of disquiet seeped into the shallower end of my brain. I have craved many things over these recent months of confinement – printed menus, petits fours, the chance to wear smoky eye kohl – but one thing I’d not missed was Fomo (that’s “fear of missing out”, should you not be up on modern acronyms). Fomo is the pernici...

Repurposing Consumer Marketing Tactics for Recruitment Marketing Tactics in A Post-2020 World

Prior to the extraordinary circumstances of 2020 – much of what we deemed “recruitment marketing” could reflect much of the same tactics we use to promote our brands. We wanted both consumers and job seekers alike to want to be a part of our brand – either through their pocketbooks or their desire to work for us. How we spend our time and money has drastically changed since March 2020, but how we market to those consumers and potential employees needs little changing to make a big impact. With ...

How Modern Marketing Prays on Insecurity and Why Long-Term Success Centers on Culture

You might be familiar with the acronym FOMO or fear of missing out. There's a version of it that tries to flip the feeling. JOMO, or joy of missing out is about finding balance in life. The JOMO journey began in 2012 when tech entrepreneur Anil Dash coined the term 'the joy of missing out' on his blog. It happened on my birthday, so I noticed. But FOMO had deeper cultural roots and hooks into our lizard brain. Hence why it perseveres. Modern marketing has capitalized on human insecurities. But i...

Busting the Myths That Keep Your Business From Reaching Millennial Customers

Even though the oldest millennials will turn 38 in 2020 (based on U.S. Census Bureau stats) marketers are still trying to figure out the generation. Assumptions about their “teen behavior” have seemed to persist (how long was this generation labeled “entitled”?) far past the natural expiration date. Does your business understand how to connect effectively with millennial customers? This is particularly challenging for B2B companies.

Writing More About Women

Following is an abridged email that showed up in my inbox recently that caused me to stop and think for a few minutes. I took a look back through your posts before I crafted this email.  So much of what you write about is focused on men who are succeeding, that I wonder if you are going to write something about women like Simone Biles.  She is doing some pretty amazing stuff on the mat, bars, vault, and beam.  I know you support women so I feel a little bad about calling this out but am curio...

JOMO – The Joy of Missing Out

Recently, I discovered a neat new acronym, JOMO, which stands for the “Joy Of Missing Out.” While FOMO is an endless part of all things technology, entrepreneurship, and investing, I’ve actively tried to ignore and avoid FOMO across all dimensions of my life. On balance, I’m more successful than not on this dimension, but it’s an endless challenge. I find it entertaining to turn FOMO upside down, backward, and inside out and actively experience JOMO instead. When I’m depressed, I ...

Weekend reading: The house that Jack built

What caught my eye this week. H ard to believe now, but when Monevator was born in the summer of 2007, passive investing with tracker funds was still a minority pursuit in Britain. Few investors did it. Newspapers and magazines rarely wrote about it, except in a “oh if you can’t be bothered you could buy an index fund and just accept the market return (you loser)” sort of way. The financial crisis didn’t help – it’s hard to sell index tracking when the index has just fallen 50%! All the talk w...

Three acronyms and an ism

The acronyms aren’t new, just new to me – as in last-two-weeks new. The ism appears to be a recent (and helpful) coinage.    BLUF. Someone – I regret I don’t remember who – recently retweeted this from the anonymous account “ScienceVet2.”   So. Hi new people! Apparently, we're gonna talk about sex. Like physical sex! Because... there's some confusion. First, sex defined: We're talking physical sex here, not gender. Body parts, hormones, and genetics (and more). BLUF: BIOLOGICAL sex is a...

Intentional Instagramming: The "New Age" Of Social Media

Over the last seven days, 21% of the time I've spent on my iPhone has been spent on Instagram.I devoted five-and-half hours to scrolling through my feed, mindlessly tapping through Stories, and watching yellow labrador puppies roll around in the mud on Explore. This amounts to more time than I've spent checking email, listening to music, texting, and Tweeting — combined.I found out about this because I looked at the breakdown of my iPhone's battery usage (Settings > Battery). Soon, though, I'll...

Google unveiled a bunch of new features aimed at curbing 'tech addiction' — here's what each of them actually does (GOOGL)
