Fast Company 01/25/10 - Happiness is contagious, and that “contagious” quality is where design meets the market. Coca-Cola’s Happiness Machine video is a perfect example of how viral happiness can be. The brand’s first viral venture captures what happened when they placed a very special vending machine on a college campus.
His latest “social forensic case” delves into just how “Davids” aka Underdogs (KC note: I just couldn’t resist using this image from one of my favorite childhood cartoons!) can defeat the “Goliaths” of the world with a bit of rule breaking, great effort, cleverness, a dash of the unexpected, and ingenuity.
For me, a story that can stitch together a compelling read using disparate tales of an low-skilled, girl’s youth hoops team’s rise to dominance + a Biblical tale of a “rule breaker” (aka David v. Goliath) + Rick Pitino as a freshman “bench warmer” at UMass + Julius “the Doctor….Errrrrving!” and create a painstakingly detailed, highly insightful, cleverly “penned”, joyfully unexpected reading experience for the “David-in-all-of-us” ... is gonna be a post on my blog!
Well shared, Malcolm…well shared!
Enjoy the read + break some rules!
