This year for Xmas it's the NBA's turn to let the old play with the new in a beautiful and moving commercial.
As I always say: "Sometimes great minds think alike, but even if they don't it's still important to know how to imitate"

Six degrees of separation. this is a notion that refers to the idea everyone is on average approximately six steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person on earth, so that a chain of, "a friend of a friend" statements can be made, on average, to connect any two people in six steps or fewer. (Wikipedia).
But only a week ago a research conducted by facebook claims that the average person needs has dropped to only 4.7 connections to reach anyone on the globe famous or not. But what does it really mean? Does it mean that I can call, lets say Obama and invite him for coffee? Or maybe even sit down with Ahmewanijad for peace talks? I think not. The notion behind Six degrees of separation is nice and probably true but it is a theory because our "connections" lets say on facebook are not really connections.So I have decided to run a small experiment on my own. I want an appointment with (I will make it easy for you :-) ) Sean Parker. So I am waiting to see which one of you will pick up the glove and arrange this meeting for me.
You can even use 8 degrees, I will not hold this against you.

I think, as long as we'll keep on walking through the desert for a cold drink, enter white fabrics accompanied by a scientist or simply keep on copying from each other, we wont find our way back. But still there is hope yet...

Some go to synagogs to pray, some stay home and watch TV. Some stop eating and fast, some ride fast and then eat. But whatever you do, religious or secular you feel that there is something in the air. Maybe it the silence. All of a sudden there are no cars humming, no sounds from radios or TV's. Nothing. I believe if an align would have landed on Yom Kippur, he would think he came to an amazing place. It's sunny and green. it's so quiet and friendly, everybody is wearing white and drives friendly to the environment vehicles, people are communicating verbally and not via electronic devices, truly heaven.
I just hope it will be a one day visit. We do want them to come back.

When you're big, you can practically do whatever the f... you want, pay as much as you want to whoever you want. I guess that is why NIKE can... Just do it
The definition for "the cost of living" as stated by Wikipedia is: "a theoretical price index that measures relative cost of living over time or regions. It is an index that measures differences in the price of goods and services, and allows for substitutions to other items as prices vary". But what does it really mean? Well, when you look at it from my point of view as a husband and a father, this definition is all wrong. The real cost of living is what you actually pay for your earnings. You pay with the lack of quality time with your family, you pay with the absence of free time and you pay with the lack of deep sleep. You basically pay the price with your physical and mental health. Writing this blog from work is another cost of living. Living at the office that is.
So you start thinking to yourself, is it all worth it? Should I work for less but pay less? Is it possible?
Think about it and let me know... I'll be at the office :-)

But when I wanted to leave after doping my youngest at her new kindergarten, I figured, well now I have to be patient and relaxed. So when I tried to do what my friend did, look her in the eyes that is, and "transfer the responsibilities", she didn't even look up, she just waved at me while drawing something down on a piece of paper.
So what can we learn from all this. Well, If I was a psychiatrist I would probably say Nothing, because every child is different. But I am not one am I? So I just tapped myself on the back and said: "you've done a good job, once more"

OK what just happened? Have I been demoted? Well... you defiantly got a new boss. All of a sudden you are not calling the shots anymore and you are not your own boss. But OK you can live with that because you are happy, right? So, you get happier and have kids.
WOW hold on, have I been demoted again? Sorry "boss" yes you have. You now have another boss or two more or even... well you do the math.
So basically as you progress in your professional career and move up the ladder,
in your private life you are moving down (down the food chain that is). Think of it as one of those two sided ladders, where you can stand at the top with one leg on each side, but you can't really move like that and it's really not stable.
But hey at least when the night comes and everybody is asleep, you are the lord of the manor once more.
Well got to go now I need to prepare tea for the V.P

But when an homage is made with a twist, it's much better. Wikileaks will be facing it's untimely death unless they can come up with enough money to stay in action. so, they came up with a great homage to the famous MasterCard commercial. The outcome, well I think speaks for itself...

Now, some of Facebook's friends decided that at the least they like the way Google+ looks, and changed their own look to suit his.
When invited somewhere it's a common thing to be asked if you are coming alone or plus one. But how many pluses should one have? In Facebook we already have 500,000,000 friends that show up every now and then without sending even r.s.v.p. And if we already have 500,000,000 potential friends, why do we need more? And what is the plus? Maybe it is just that now you can meet these millions of friends in just another place with new decor and new facilities. Maybe it's just like changing a pub.
The only question here is: will we think its a Plus or we'll just Like it and not more.

Apparently the massive PR noise along with two digits raise in sales has turned (after a very short time) this into the newest trend of young people. That does'nt really surprise me, but what it does is show us again how a little bit of different thinking takes you a long way.

But... I will just say this: the next time you are about to pick a name for your company that supposed to see you through well into the future, think well, or you will be remembered but not in the way you hoped for.

maximum wingspan of 30ft, maximum weight including the kamikaze that is holding the... whatever he's holding should not be more than 205 Kg. Oh yes and be "powered by muscle, gravity or imagination. Regardless of how good (or bad) the designs are, ultimately they will all end up in the water, and for that reason all designs must be unsinkable and be built entirely from environmentally friendly materials without any loose parts".
Take a breather... now, it's true the fly boys (or girls) are being marked for their achieved distance, creativity and showmanship. But really come on, who in their right mind, both spectators and flyers care about the distance? All that really maters is how creative one can get and how fast the machine plunges to it's death. Throughout the years the Flugtag proved over and over again that there are very creative and imaginative people out there, all they really need to do is find the right outlet.
I may not be trying to fly myself into a "clean lake", yet, but I have found my outlet.
So you may not be able judge me by distance, but if you really feel judgmental, well...

As always there where lecturers and speakers and of course the award ceremony itself (with brunch in the middle). The thing is though, that as always, it was boring. This event holds in it the best creative minds in the industry, with a combined production capabilities and creative experience of at least 100 years, and yet as always it's one of the most boring and dry events you can imagine. Still, as always, it was fun to meet all your friend and see who moved where and who did what.
But those of us who remember the Adeaters nights that were held at the trendiest clubs in Tel Aviv, know that there is a another way and for you youngsters...
Anyways...congratulation to all the winners, who proves once again there is good advertising here, if you know where to look
Why does it bother me so much? People say it's an ego thing. I don't consider myself a person with an inflated ego (maybe that's...
