  • The headache
Site specific artwork has always generated interest because of its ability to cause people to reconsider their preconceived notions about their surroundings.

Can Apple make newspapers cool?
I think if anything can, this marriage between Apple’s iPad and Rupert Murdoch’s The Times newspaper is well-placed in terms of their marketing and branding… both offer products and services that aren’t competitive on price but sell a lifestyle that (if successfully authentic and value-added) people will be happy to pay for.

Monocolumn’s forecast for 2011: The Digital Backlash Begins… the article highlights the growing feeling that mobile communications and the internet, basically, have taken over our lives.
