hacking the education

this piece called “la campanella” I found in youtube is the one my music teacher at junior high desparately wanted to share with the class using vcr in my days. Just wonder how the music teachers around the world now are utilizing youtube for the class.

one of my favorite songs

i believe this song is still played at the end of Champaine’s Quiet Storm II on 107.5 WBLS in NY, as her ex-boss, the late, Frankie Crocker did when he was still on the show. Just found it in youtube. (sorry if the content won’t be available by the time you will read it now.)

the opposite of WWGD

Interestingly enough, new Google Japan seems to pursue the opposite of WWGD. Branding ad, Proprietary, owning distributing , owning content, .. following exactly what it took Yahoo Japan to be No.1 portal in the digital world in Japan.  My guess is it is the matter of time and Japan is probably about 5 years or so behind in many aspects.

Reimagine offline promotion

24/11/2008, originally uploaded by kenjimori.

Every time i got this kind of promotion voucher, i dispose it. Why? Because it will make my wallet or pass case thicker, which I hate.

So this time I took the picture of it, and plan to bring this pic showing 10% discount voucher to the sushi shop and see if they will apply the discount.

It’s a paper world we have get used to this and that kind of sales promotion.

But, now everybody has a cell phone with camera, and many of them have mobile email addresses (especially in case of Japan).  It’s you and I who have not changed the way we promote.  All the necessary systems are in place.  It is us marketers who have not think about it deeply.  And it is time to change.

its on and on.

Twitter banner ads in JP UI in IE only

Now Twitter comes with the banner ads in the upper right corner when you use IE from Japan IP address (presumably).

twitter banner ad japan ie

This is a great experiment for twitter how the banner ads work. However, I personally don’t like it makes it Japanese UI whenever it finds the user from Japanese IP address (which is quite common practice though). The same exact mistake google makes.

Update: They allow you t0 choose language in the settings.  When you choose English, Japanese UI and banner both disappeared,which is nice.
