For a Glimpse Of The Future, Try Reading A 3.5-Inch Floppy Disk Tom Persky’s company, floppydisk.com, sells about 250,000 of the 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch square plastic storage cards each year. It has an inventory of about 1 million disks, many of which Persky acquired from competing companies as they went out of business. And he has no plans to restock them as they’re sold. “We stayed in the business through the good times of the floppy disk business, when it was a very common way to store media, through the trough of what we have now of people not using it very much at all,” Persky says. That's not to say floppy disks aren't still his mainstay. Any remaining modern demand for the once-ubiquitous floppy is driven by machines still made with old data inputs. The first floppy disks, introduced by IBM in 1971, were 8-inches big. The problem with digital storage--as the hundreds of people who ship Persky their floppy disks each year are finding out--is that it requires active upkeep. Persky’s data recovery methods are low-tech.

NAME THAT ART ! Les enfants expliquent l’art aux experts – LeLaboNet Blog A l’occasion du lancement de sa plateforme « Google Art & Culture » qui présente les histoires et les collections du monde entier, le célèbre moteur de recherche a proposé à des enfants de donner leur propre interprétation de l’art. La règle est simple, confronter les historiens à l’imagination des plus jeunes. Trois peintures. Deux experts de l’art. Un enfant. Très vite on découvre que les enfants ne se contentent pas de décrire les tableaux, comme le ferait un adulte. Une belle façon de prouver qu’il est important de connaître l’histoire de l’art pour mieux appréhender les oeuvres. Bien plus qu’un simple jeu, Alexa 5 ans et Chris 7 ans viennent de nous livrer une belle définition du terme storytelling très utilisé dans le marketing – raconter une histoire à des fins de communication – en plus de nous inciter à découvrir l’art autrement : J'aime : J'aime chargement… « Loving Vincent » le film d'animation aux 12 peintures à l'huile par seconde !

The Perfect Job Interview in 8 Simple Steps Le web au service des musées et de la culture - ​Wellconnect Après nous être penchés sur l’usage des réseaux sociaux par le cinéma et la science, intéressons-nous à la communication numérique des musées et de l’art. Des contenus à foison Les musées bénéficient de deux avantages importants pour développer une stratégie social media. Tout d’abord, ils bénéficient bien souvent d’une communauté déjà existante sur laquelle s’appuyer pour lancer une page Facebook ou un compte Twitter. Mais au-delà de cette communauté IRL, ils ont surtout à leur disposition un volume de contenus de grande qualité. Avec leurs collections et leurs expositions, les musées peuvent aisément mettre en place une stratégie de newsjacking. En plus de leurs collections, les musées profitent également des réseaux sociaux pour montrer les coulisses. Mais comme tout utilisateur des réseaux sociaux, les musées doivent se plier aux règles d’utilisation. Le Louvre séduit les YouTubeurs Ce trio est un choix particulièrement intéressant pour une première collaboration.

Cartoons on matchbooks I stopped into the MARVA matchbook club meeting yesterday to hand off some old matchbooks (as you know, I love ephemera) and the group was very welcoming. They usually have piles they trade amongst themselves as everyone has to specialize. I found a few of cartoon interest: 3 hillbilly gag cartoons, probably from the 1940s or early 1950s, on matchbook covers. "Won't Be Long Now" hillbilly cartoon gag on matchbook cover. A cricket that looks a lot like Disney's Jiminy on a "Li'l Cricket Food Stores" matchbook cover. Matchbook ad for Art Instruction, Inc, the school that Charles Schulz attended (via correspondence) and taught at before Peanuts. Interior of matchbook ad for Art Instruction, Inc, the school that Charles Schulz attended (via correspondence) and taught at before Peanuts. Cartoon matchbook spotlighting French cartoonist.

Ambassadors of Goodwill: Vintage Matchbook Advertising and Design I picked up this salesman’s catalog for the Mercury Match Corporation of Zanesville, Ohio, about 25 years ago at the big antique show in Brimfield, Massachusetts. I remember the purchase vividly—I was over the moon, but tried to act all cool as I attempted to barter the price down from $35 to the far more reasonable $25 I had in mind. But I knew that I’d have paid $50 or more if I had to; anything to get my hands on Advertise with Mercury Union Label Book Matches. I was recently online and saw the same book selling for $250, and hoped that even one of the other investments I’d made over the years had fared anywhere near as well. “Every time you pass out a Book of Matches,” the Book Matches Work page reads, “you are sending out an ambassador of goodwill directed to the very people you want to reach.” Related Articles: No Related Posts Found

Pireneas How Patagonia Makes More Money By Trying To Make Less It’s holiday season and retailers are gearing up with every technique possible to maximize revenue for the next few weeks. Some retailers will earn more during the holiday shopping season than in the previous months combined, and already this year’s Black Friday online sales set a record by topping $1 billion for the first time, according to comScore. Sales for Cyber Monday were expected to exceed $1.5 billion, another record. But in the midst of this shopping mania, one prominent retailer took a different approach. Instead of blasting sales prices and urging consumers to load up their virtual shopping carts, Patagonia encourages consumers to buy less by promoting its Common Threads Initiative on its home page, advocating sustainability. The company says: “We design and sell things made to last and be useful. This holiday campaign follows last year’s groundbreaking advertising strategy featuring an ad in the New York Times on Black Friday saying “Don’t Buy This Jacket.”

The Most Egregiously Bad Product Placement You'll Ever See--And How To Do It Right As viewers DVR through commercials, put themselves on "do not call" lists, and set their browsers to limit tracking, product placement (placing a product into a TV series or movie) has become an increasingly popular way for brands to increase awareness, preference, and loyalty. How popular? American Idol alone had 577 placements in 39 episodes in 2011. Product placement also links the brand to the image of the show and is able to be illustrate the product being used in "real-world" situations by celebrities. Generally a brand has to pay a pretty penny to get on popular shows and in movies. Coke, for instance, has been featured on American Idol since the beginning of the show. An important point here to take away is the long-term partnership between Coke and Idol. 2) Don't just be in show; shoot for plot integration. One example of good integration is Target's product placement in the "Express Christmas" episode of Modern Family. 3) Don't overdo it.Here's a brand that did.

WEEKISTO - Application mobile sur l'Histoire de France en balade How Elf On The Shelf Went From Family Tradition To The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Innovators often have those “blue sky” moments, times where they close their eyes and conjure ideas on the grand scale. But for three business owners, the actual sky was the backdrop for their biggest dream: to see a 46-foot tall inflatable elf sailing through the air during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Not just any old elf, though. Twins Christa Pitts and Chanda Bell and their mom Carol Aebersold wanted to see that North Pole scout from Elf on the Shelf become the first storybook character selected from an independent publisher fly in the parade since Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit (self-published in 1901) sailed down Sixth Avenue on the way to Herald Square. I Believe I Can Fly The trio own Creatively Classic Activities and Books, a Georgia-based company that developed the “Elf on the Shelf” Christmas book. “When we got together at that time to discuss our dream for the brand, seeing the Elf in the parade was the pinnacle,” recalls Christa Pitts, a former on-air host for QVC.
