NEW! The decade of Nostalgia

It has been a decade of NEW.

With new things en technologies constantly around just the corner.
Just two examples: The Nintendo Wii & The iPhone.
I’m sure you’ll be able to make your own long list here.

The internet gained massively in importance and people have been adopting the new internet technologies faster than ever. Facebook and other social networks being some of them.

I wonder… will the next decade be one of NOSTALGIA, or will the hunger for NEW continue? …



Me-branding is something we all do. We use, buy, support this or that brand to show the world that we and our values are in line with the products’ or services’ brand values. We wear clothing with logo X, or we only eat food, imported by a certain fair trade label… We’ve been doing this for a long time, but now, more and more, people are me-branding over the internet.

No picture, than it’s not real.

A fun phrase used so often on the web is “If there’s no picture, it didn’t happen.” Meaning of course you have to be able to prove everything you claim has happened by uploading a picture to the web for all to see.

Real or not?

Echt of niet? Is dat een vraag die het publiek zich moet stellen zodat een filmpje succes kan hebben?
