"Food for thought"

"Our technological devices, media habits and attentionspan may have changed, but our fundamental nature has not. (...) The headlines proclaim that advertising is dead; the future is interactive, digital,mobile, and social. These days, the cool kids are insight planners, communication planners, channel planners, creative planners, strategic planners, brand planners and, in exceptionally cool cases, brand anthropologists or brand catalysts. Call me a Luddite, but I still believe that we're in the business of communicating with people."
- Jon Steel, WPP

"The supermarket must die"

"Thanks to the smartphone-addicted consumer, GPS, apps, and the Internet, a new breed of startup is building systems that make it easier for producers to know just how much to produce, for shoppers to order just what they want, and for food to get from one to the other faster and with fewer stops in between."

"Food for thought"

"Too many of us in the industry have bought into the idea that winning awards is proof of creative effectiveness, so much so that we’re willing to sacrifice our integrity to get them."
