Moused over the google homepage image today - interested to see whose birthday it is/was... Turns out it's mine! (...which I did know - BTW)
How cool is that? They are my favourite search engine - now where's the link through to my horoscope...
This is a great example of personalisation - yes - some people don't like giving out this level of personal details - but when something like this happens you tend to forget about the identity thieves who hide under your bed (...they do! - it's official - the Daily Mail says so)

"Smeerkating" - It's been written on a piece of paper for the past month - and now I finally have time to blog it... Was it worth the wait??
[I don't think so.]
"Smarketing" is the phrase I've used for the past 8 years - merging solution sales methodology into the web experience - so covering CRM, persona development, UI/UX, Myers Briggs etc etc. (I saw the phrase being used by someone else for the first time last month :))
As the meerkats get more and more sophisticated with their sales/brand messaging - I think they deserve a made up phrase of their own.
More importantly - I always like googling my own made up words in a few months time to check that Google's algorythm is still working properly!

Went to see Eddie Izzard last night - it's exciting to see someone running in completely the opposite direction of the dis-enfranchised Tories' sudden embrace of UKIP and the right wing...
Proud to be British and proud to be a European - Eddie proves they're not mutually exclusive. We've got a number of clients whose HQs are in Europe and we love them.
You do have to be wary of any left wingers who don't like "Johnny Foreigner" - there's nothing clever about National Socialism!
