Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Community & OPC
After a great #CMGRhangout with @AllyGreer from Scoopit and Tim McDonald (@tamcdonald) from the Huffington Post on Friday I followed up with this post about OPC - Other People's Content.

Tim made an interesting distinction in our Hangout between UGC (User Generated Content) and OPC (Other People's Content). This post follows up with notes on places to find OPC and its overwhelming value.

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.
