In the year 2030, I bought a future fish. One for my father, mother, brother and sister. One for each friend. One for my girlfriend. They swim together in the big aquarium. Each fish is connected to the mobile phone of the person it represents. In the year 3020, I am a future fish swimming in a big bowl with my family and friends. We don't talk much, we swim around and show each other beautiful colors by shifting the color of our skin. four comments

01 February 2003 Marshall Mcluhan quote #1 The ads are by far the best part of any magazine or newspaper. More pains and thought, more wit and art go into the making of an ad than into any prose feature of press or magazine. Ads are news. What is wrong with them is that they are always good news. In order to balance off the effect and to sell good news, it is necessary to have a lot of bad news. one comment

Soon we will get another chance to vote in the Dutch elections. Most of us try to decide what to vote by collecting and weighting as much factual information as possible. But the facts are often scattered, overloaded, or taken out of context. Doubt remains. The Zen Voting Strategy is an alternative decision strategy based on the quietness of watching TV. seven comments
