Staples Launch in Australia with Viral Video

I think this is a great little idea from The Works

They constructed the Sydney Harbour reconstructed entirely out of Staples Stationery and Office Supplies. Featuring 2,344 recycled sticky notes, 84 boxes of staples, 361 bulldog clips, 169 paperclips, 107 rubber bands, 132 coloured pencils and loads more.

I hope it gets more traction than the <1,000 views it has now. Maybe the seeding/media kicks in soon?

I also want to see photos of it and see it in real life as well, but that's just me.

Facebook Brand Pages For Dummies

Ad Age has posted up the report from Soap Creative (which is my agency) on Facebook Brand Pages for Dummies which clearly presents some simple to use tactics for anyone charged with updating a brand's Facebook page.

This is like open source code sharing. We hope more people will share their successes so we can all do this stuff better and generally give everyone a better experience. We can all blame all the bad banner ads for ruining banners for the rest of us.
