Sienna Miller what a beauty!

Wow, I'm not the type that finds the skinny woman attractive. I rather lay in bed with a creamy one like Jennifer Hudson. But once in a while you can't deny ones beauty. With Sienna this is the case. She's such a classic beauty! And for some high res pictures you'll have to click the links :)

What some people do in their spare time! Read all about it here!

Our favorite new iPhone hack, the duiPhone, will let you know for sure whether you should hand the car keys to a friend after a long night in the bar…

Once you blow into the mouthpiece, the application will determine your blood alcohol level - either telling you you’re good to go, or that you should consider calling a cab.

We built this from a store-bought-and-hacked breathalyzer attached to a 3G iPhone - our first experiment with Tellart’s newest Sketchtool: NADA Mobile.

Nice :)

Neuromarketing - Understanding The Buy Buttons in The Brain

I stumbled upon an interesting blog, specially for whom who work in advertising. Read the quote and decide yourself!

Keys to Neuromarketing
Christophe Morin, co-author of Neuromarketing: Understanding the Buy Buttons in Your Customer's Brain, says entrepreneurs can improve their products, services, marketing and advertising by learning six keys to neuromarketing. These tenets stem from Morin's argument that most purchase decisions are made subconsciously, in the nether regions of the mind he calls the primal brain, areas where basic fight-or-flight instincts kick in. We buy, he says, out of fear.

1. We're self-centered:
Nothing triggers self-centered action like a transaction. "People are completely egocentric and all they want is something that will create a difference in their lives, eliminate pain and possibly bring them more pleasure," Morin says.

2. We crave contrast:

"The bottom line is, on any given day, we will receive about 10,000 ad messages, and only the ones that are huge contrasts will get any attention," he says.

3. We're naturally lazy:

Abstract advertising and marketing won't get through. Keep it simple, but strong. "Most companies tend to create abstract messages and use too many words," Morin says. "Reading is much more a function of the 'new brain.' We recommend that, of course, companies use a lot of concrete visuals."

4. We like stories:

Advertising and marketing with strong beginnings and ends create anchor points that we latch onto, so Morin advises entrepreneurs to sum up and recap their strongest selling points at the end of any promotional material. "The brain has a natural tendency to pay attention at the beginning and end of anything," he says.

5. We're visual:

Appealing video and graphic presentations can make the difference at cash registers where price and reason can't. "We process and make decisions visually, without being aware of them," Morin says. "Only later do we rationalize decisions we made."

6. Emotion trumps reason:

Give us the right emotion to ride on, and we'll buy what you're selling. "When we experience an emotion," he says, "it creates a chemical change in our brain, hormones flood our brain and change the speeds with which neurons connect, and it's through those connections we memorize. We don't remember anything if there isn't an emotion attached to that experience.

Malcolm Gladwell - 10.000 hours of experimenting will get you on the top of your game!

Interesting guy, interesting thesis, worth the whole 38 minutes!

About this video
Only Malcolm Gladwell could bring Fleetwood Mac into the design discussion and make wonderful sense. In his enlightening talk about innovation and misconceptions about what it takes to become a success, Gladwell uses this unlikely metaphor for creative synthesis in an entertaining entrée into the concepts of his forthcoming book, Outliers. Genius and creativity don’t necessarily spring forth unbidden, he says; they require time and support to experiment, to try and even fail. During this time of economic crisis and eventual renewal, he hopes that the design community will be able to “rediscover the true roots of creativity and innovation.”

Already Free - The new Derek Trucks Band Album

The new DTB single “Down in the Flood” will be available through iTunes and all major digital music providers Nov. 4, a little taste for those of you eagerly awaiting the new dTb studio album Already Free (due in stores Jan ‘09).

Already Free was self-produced by Derek at his new home studio in Jacksonville. In addition to the core members of the dTb, the album offers collaborations with a close circle of family and friends including Doyle Bramhall II, Oteil Burbridge, Susan Tedeschi, Duane Trucks and more. The album came to life organically in Derek's backyard as friends stopped by to write and rehearse in the new studio. Derek explained in a recent interview: “When we went in the studio originally it was just to write and kind of get comfortable in the space. It wasn’t to do a record, so there was no pressure. There were some times when everybody would go out to dinner and I would stay behind. If I got an idea, I would run into the control room, hit ‘play,’ then run out into the recording room and set up a mic. You’d hear this thing banging around and then this guitar part comes in. A lot of the album was completely done by the seat of our pants, and a lot of the sounds we got, it was just so in the moment.’”

Original material makes up a major part of this record, largely due to a luxury Derek isn’t used to: time off. His hectic schedule finally opened a window for Derek to write at home with band mates and friends. “Everyday I would get up, and me or Susan would drive our two kids to school,” Derek says. “I’d come back, have some coffee and then head to the studio and start messing around with a guitar and hope a song idea appeared. Somehow without fail, there was at least a song written every day, or some great cover idea that came to us and we recorded it. So there was a good three or four-week period where every day we were writing and recording a song. That was different for me.” In addition to the wealth of original material on Already Free there are some choice cover songs interpreted and revived as only the dTb can do, including the single being released in November. “Down in the Flood,” from Bob Dylan and the Band’s Basement Tapes, is a tune that may have more portent now than when Dylan wrote it in 1967. “That was one that was kind of an afterthought,” admits Derek. “We just went in and tracked it. I think it really turned out to be one of the most powerful songs on the album. Lyrically, it’s pretty timely. Crash on the levee, down in the flood, are significant post-Katrina. They are good metaphors, as there are in most Dylan tunes.”

In December I'm going to attend a forum called in Beirut Lebanon. I and a friend of mine are going to teach people there how to market their democratization initiatives in the Middle East. is a web-based platform that couples society changing projects, short, cheap and innovative, by a younger generation in the wider Middle East with individual donors in the West, the Netherlands who want to make a direct impact.

The mission of is to support ‘democratizers’ and democratization initiatives in the Middle East, local activists and initiatives that target society and politics. A democratic and inclusive society and political system is the main condition for peace, justice and human security in the Middle East. Democratization from below is the way to change stagnant states, social and cultural structures in the region aims to be an engine for social and political change that generates inspiration and ideas, resulting in concrete actions. An engine that fuels the capacities for political change and innovation in the region and creates links between East and West.

Now something different!

Brands fail when being to perfect!

Some interesting thoughts by Clay Shirky.


We need more vintage Hulk

Hi good folks,

We need more vintage Hulk! And with that I mean the uncomplicated, the reactions pure on instinct, more screaming, more yelling when you feel like it! The fun thing I think about the Hulk, which it also makes is interesting, is that even though he is a brute, he in actuality is a nice person that hates injustice. Hulk is a reactionary character that lives from the heart. Of course the world surrounding us is to complicated and we life by social rules of engagement. Still I feel that we should speak and act more form the heart, whatever it is. So If you always fancied hugging a tree but never dared too, hug a tree. If your mission in life is to gain as much economical wealth, go for it, but do it from the heart. Feel what you believe and believe what you feel.

That's what I mean by we need more Hulk!
