Hey There, Berghs Students


Every once in a blue cheese, a son of Ming the Merciless invites me to speak at an advertising school in Stockholm, Berghs School of Communication. (Yes, they have adopted an English name to sound cooler. No, they didn’t put the genitive apostrophe in. I find that really painful.) I talk about cyberculture, on-line communities and what advertising people need to know about the web.

As this entry comes on-line, I am standing in front of 30 fresh-faced Macbook-toting hipsters who will soon learn, to their horror, that Firefox allows you to kill all ad banners and flash clips.

During my talk, I’m using a link page that some people may find useful.

    Got to love an organisation that uses an aluminium replica beer pump for its corporate logo.

    Well, Asahi beer has a giant golden turd on the roof of their corporate headquarters:


    Most anything is better by comparison.

    Blogging from the front line! Exciting stuff.

    You might also explain to them that Macs are just recycled Amigas with a shiny plastic shell and a bloated price tag.

    Actually, these days Macs are just PC:s with another expensive operating system. Intel processors!
