Here are my thoughts about the User Experience lab that I attended last week and how to apply the learnings of the lab to your workshop.
Here is a summary of what I learned during the Hyper Island's User Experience Lab in Singapore.
Everyone knows I live by gamification, whether it is Foursquare badges or Nike Fuel Band points. This week, Fourquare has revamped its homepage and it's just awesome. Find out what's new!
Good news! Twitter now gives the exact number of times you've been retweets.
On Friday, I attended CreativeMornings, a monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types. Each event is free of charge, and includes a 20 minute talk, plus coffee! It was the second event in Singapore (I couldn't attend the first one) and it was really great. Kudos to the organizers for the event - I can't wait for next month! Here is the summary.
Today was so inspiring, I felt that I was being at TEDx all over again. A great panel of young entrepreneurial women. Here are the take aways.
Yesterday was the start of Social Media Week in Singapore. The keynotes were presented by Henry Mason from Trendwatching and Alan Soon from Yahoo! SEA.
I just finished reading "From Social Media to Social CRM" report by IBM. Here is a summary and some thoughts.
You did it again Facebook. Everyone hates Facebook changes - every time, people spend days discussing about the potential benefits and the many disadvantages of the new design. This time, the change is radical.
If you have been one of Google’s 33 million unique visitors today, then you must have noticed the best ad placement ever: meet Google ad for Google Plus (with a nice big blue arrow!).
Twitter unveiled new email notifications. The good news? On a computer, it looks great. The bad news? On the iPhone, it looks like crap.
TED talks are a real gem. They make you think, cry, laugh and you already feel smarter after watching a couple (yes, yes!). Here are the videos that I have watched in the last couple of weeks. They talk about innovation, leadership, learning and challenging yourself. What are your favorite ones?
Today, I received an email from o2. O2 is a mobile carrier in the UK and from time to time they send me a newsletter. Last week, surprise, they sent me a "gift" because "There's nothing better than a present out of the blue" (I couldn't agree more). But today, the email was about "O2 learn: the place to revise for exams".
I hate revising for exams. This year, I thought I should make my revisions more fun. To revise for my marketing course, I will go through the theories I'm learning (which sometimes seem irrelevant in today's world) and explain their strengths and why (or if) I disagree with them. Join me for the ride, the first one concerns marketing warfare strategies.
