We are going on hiatus here at Think Small Media Conglomerate LLC Inc. International.
While there has been so much incredible thinking, learning and sharing in the world of planning, marketing, media and so on over the past few years, the internet lately feels a lot like turning on your TV the second week of August - mostly reruns with little original content. Frankly, it's getting tiresome to wade through the daily addition of more "experts" weighing in far far from the sidelines on my profession with new to them thoughts on how to avoid or embrace death of this, that or the other. Which is unfortunate when so much good stuff is going on.
So rather than perpetuate the drudgery and further clogging the tubes of the internet with more punditry and rebuttals we're going on hiatus for a couple months to focus on other projects. There is simply too much opportunity and appetite right now to do all the stuff we've been talking about for years.Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of great stuff out there about the interweb, it's just time to personally switch things up a little.
Additionally, I'll be getting married in a few weeks, traveling about Japan through May/June and in a few months plan resurface launching a retail concept I've been chewing on for a while. I want to see if we can evolve the utilitarian online commerce experience to adopt the spontaneity, delight and narrative of a good magazine with the sensory delight of a real world shopping experience and make it a media company unto itself. Oh, and spend less than $100 to launch it. Stay tuned for Vie & Monde later this year, featuring products for life.
Stay tuned for the odd image or travel update. The stimulating PSFK Good Ideas Salon thing will continue. Interesting Vancouver will get going with a new twist in the summer in time for the big night around the end of October. My pithy nothingness will continue on the Twittershere and I'm always up for the face to face version over a coffee if you want.
Bye for now friends.
