Blog recommendations: narrative places and fabulous food

A couple of blog recommendations for you, to drop into whatever you're using to replace Google Reader…

Adam's Apples

Adam's Apples - a blog Adam Scott is the creative director of FreeState and a master of brand-related storytelling. Remember my liveblogging from the Zeitgeist Project in Berlin? They were the people behind it.

His new blog Adam's Apples is a buffet of interesting ideas about narrative expressed in a physical context. Must-read.

Not So Thin Lizzie

Not So Thin Lizzie - a blog One of my (now ex-) students from the Magazine Journalism MA at City University has spun off her own food blog from the project blog she did as part of the Online Journalism module.

Not So Thin Lizzie is a journey through her interest in food. Pop over, salivate a little and give her some encouragement.

No 3 on the inbound marketing hit parade

I wrote the 3rd best blog post on inbound marketing this week.

This is, frankly, a bit of a surprise, as I have no idea what inbound marketing is...

Morning Coffee Reading: Jan 11th 2012

The coffee cupboard

I need to get back into the habit of doing these, before my MacBook collapses into a superdense mass and becomes a black hole because of all the tabs I have open in Safari.

So, um, to save the planet from being sucked into a black hole in the West Sussex area, here's some morning coffee reading for you:

Afternoon Coffee Reading: 13/12/11

Do stupid things fasterSome delicious, cream-filled linky goodness to while away the rest of the afternoon:

  • Driving by looking in the rear view mirror - an interesting cautionary note from Neil, looking at how predicting the death of things or viewing the future with too much reference to the past can skew your views. I remember the days when I though that RSS would allow us to build and have printed our own "newspapers"... 
  • More thoughts on magazines and publishing on the iPad - I like the pragmatic approach on display here. And I really don't like straight PDF replicas. 
  • Designing apps for tablets: consider the time of day - interesting figures. I think too few people are considering how and when people will use their apps right now. We're too used to the one-setting (at the keyboard) paradigm of the web...
  • Publish or perish McKinsey tells retail brands - I find the rise of brand content at the same time that traditional journalism content is on the decline to be one of the most compelling feature of the attention wars right now. For all that it's a tough time to be a journalist, content is clearly still in demand...
  • SoLoMo in the fast lane - I thought that the "local" element of Le Web's social-local-mobile theme was the least in evidence. Here's an argument that I'm wrong. 

Mmm. Links and coffee... ;-)

While you're waiting for iOS 5 to drop...

Middle class are some links to distract you.

And, finally, possibly the most evil app ever invented for carnivorous Londoners. Damn you, Sue Llewellyn for bringing this to my notice.

Commuter's Delight

For the first time in a little while, I caught the train from Shoreham-by-Sea to London for a day at Procter Street. That gave me the chance to catch up on my RSS feeds, and here's a few things of note:

Coffee from the wonderful Toast by the Coast. ;-)

Super Injunction Linkage

Not really had much to say on this, beyond what I said back when it was all about Trafigura. But here are some interesting links that have crossed my radar:

Any other links people would like to recommend?
