Advertising as a cultural flashpoint

I had the opportunity to spend four days in Barcelona last week on a hastily-arranged vacation. The time was short, but it was nice to have the change of scenery.
On my first day there, I noticed this huge, striking Nike banner draping one of the skyscrapers on Plaza Catalunya. It had two giant bell peppers in the team colors of Football Club Barcelona and a Nike swoosh. I thought, that’s cool, and made a note to myself to photograph it later.

New Orleans is a great invention. The music, the food, and the people all combine to form this rich amalgamation—a unique stew of so many distinct and ultimately complimentary cultures.

But, there is one thing that is most ubiquitous of all, and that is the face of the King Rama IX.
In 2010, Forbes estimated Bhumibol’s personal fortune to be US$30 billion, consistently placed at number one in the magazine’s list of The World’s Richest Royals. In the heart of the city, you …

The Advisors

So, everybody is talking about how Facebook is cool.
But have you ever thought about the power of networks like TripAdvisor?
I just came back from a one-month holiday (thanks, God, I always knew that you existed) and I realized how much it grew, thanks to its users, and how much money it is moving worldwide.
