Europeans are cooler than us

Well...some will argue that England is not Europe...but you know what I'm talking about.

The Value of Free

Is free-dom killing America?

A very good business man once said, "if it's free, it has no value."

I look around at sharing that the Web 2.0 environment has created and I wonder if the "free" exchange of ideas, technology and information is what's killing the economy.

Think about it...back in the day, if you had a great idea, or figured out how to do something better than someone else, you packaged it up and sold it.

Now, people are developing technology, sharing information, providing services...all for free. And as stated above...if it's free, does it have value.

Take Google. I get on Google at work, type in the name of a company I saw over the weekend and get the scoop. I don't click on any ads...I don't buy anything, and the only "cost" is that of my company to the internet provider. Google gets nothing.

I really don't know where I'm going with this yet...but it seems to me that free nature of our economy is currently crashing on itself. and maybe what we need is less 'free-dom'...

Caught this vid from Seth at TED on the "importance" of being "remarkable". (actually, it was linked to a PSFK go there, too). The purple cow example is not new...but it's still striking, and it confounds me that more marketers, brand managers and product designers don't follow it. why do beer companies think that new secondary packaging will sell more beer when EVERY beer company is always changing their secondary packaging.

a great example was a brain drizzle i was in a few weeks ago and someone asked, "can we tell or show that we're are smarter than the other guys." and the resounding answer was no...we can't. we can show them we're smart...we can show them we're good...but we cannot show them we're smarter. what we need to show them, i argued, is that we're remarkable. we'll see how it goes....
