2013 Marketing Predictions For The Rest Of Us

Pour a steaming mug of hot cocoa and drop in a handful of marshmallows, kids! It's that special time of year when Justice takes a look at the many facets of branding, marketing, social media, cultural trends and related offshoots, and tries to sound smart by prognosticating on what we can look forward to in 2013.

Diary of a Trend Stalker: Chapter One

Every day I wake up, look in the mirror and marvel at the gorgeous physical specimen staring back at me. I soak it all in and think about how lucky my wife is to have me. Then I shake off the remnants of that final pre-alarm dream and take another look at the disheveled guy with unruly red locks and badass Jedi boxers. That’s when I see the 40-year-old father of a 4-year-old daughter, a husband, and a friend to what seems to be an endless array of people. I am blessed with innumerable online "F3s" (friends, fans and followers) with whom I feel the need to connect in some way. I also feel hopelessly out of touch.

A Message To The Future Of Professional Blog Content

Starting something new is always exciting. Especially when it is something that you've built up from an idea and is just something you want to do. It has no client, no budget and no timeline, just passion. A while ago I wrote a post about why it seems that only people whoring up a book get credibility.

Mouse Wood

It's the little things in life that I get the most excited about. When my daughter says a new word, when my wife laughs (with me - not at me) and when Apple recreates something as basic, yet needed as the mouse. Enter the "Magic Mouse." Released today, with a new iMac, Mac Mini and MacBook respectively. This mouse, at least on the surface having not actually tried one, is yet another shift in taking something commonplace and pushing it even further.

Of course it's wireless and beautiful. However, the power comes from advanced "gestures" allowing the user to combine track-pad functionality and a standard mouse usability.

"When you use gestures, it’s as if you’re touching what’s on your screen. For instance, swiping through web pages in Safari gives you the feeling of flicking through pages in a magazine. And scrolling with Magic Mouse isn’t your everyday scrolling. It supports momentum scrolling (similar to iPhone and iPod touch), where the scrolling speed is dictated by how fast or slowly you perform the gesture."
