There Is A New SEO Sheriff In Town - Facebook Becomes #1 Web Destination

There Is A New SEO Sheriff In Town - Facebook Becomes #1 Web Destination | Curation Revolution |
We were more fascinated by our SEO game's rules than why we were playing then a giant snapped his fingers and Daniel Pink's new mind prediction was true.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Facebook vs. Google & The New SEO
Facebook becoming the #1 web destination is as much a VOTE for something (content and content curation) as against something (Google).

There will be a day when Google is as powerful in social networking as Facebook. People laugh at G+. I don't. I LOVE under valued tools because then I get to BUY LOW and SELL HIGH. 

Wrote this piece as Facebook's traffic line crossed Google's. You can see that infogrpahic here:

Facebook vs. Google Infographic  

If it feels like that event is bigger than it seems I agree. Facebook becoming the web's top destination is a statement about how TRUE Daniel Pink's book A Whole New Mind is and will be. Couldn't resist sharing thoughts on such a momentous event.

Marketing the Art of Shoes - Curagami

The Power of SHOES
Isabel Flowers wrote a fascinating post in Artforum about "sneakerheads" and the 1.2 billion dollar aftermarket for sneakers. Flowers' post got us thinking about flocking behavior, how weather-like the Internet is and what sneakers, baseball cards and art can teach us about marketing.

Blondie's New York - Curagami

Blondie's New York - Curagami | Curation Revolution |

Blondie's New York
Blondie's New York on the Smithsonian channel stinks but in a good way. If you can't smell, feel and remember NYC in the seventies while watching Blondie's band members stitch their 20-million selling Parallel Lines album together you weren't there. I was and I remember. 

I remember the crime, grime and sense of hopelessness that seemed to have a choke hold on NYC. But the ART was amazing. In a tiny rat-hole of a bar named CBGB the Talking Heads, Ramones and Blondie was born, nurtured, taught and honed. The Smithsonian's documentary tells several stories simultaneously. 

One story is the city's rotting corpse infecting the air and spirits with the thick fetid smell of death and dying. Yet despite or maybe because of the retching, queasy  feel great art was made. Art that defined the city, the bands and us.
