Park life London…
Saturday. First up was a trip to BoB - the Best of Britannia exhibition in Farringdon. Lots of great British craft brands. A particular favourite was Lee Sinclair with a convertible table, a small coffee table, large coffee table, 2 person dining table, 6 person dining table all in one.http://leesinclair.co.uk/convert-coffee-table-to-dining-table.html
Then it was off to see the Moat full of poppies at the Tower of London - a striking and stunning visual of remembrance. Must order one of the poppies too http://poppies.hrp.org.uk
We ended the day seeing Gone Girl at the Genesis in Stepney Green. Amazing film, stands up to all the hype, I think having not read the book was a blessing with all of the plot twists and turns. It’s well over two hours long but didn’t feel it all.
I didn’t contribute anything to this project, but I like it and the guys behind it did a great job bringing it to life in a short space of time. I went along to the event to help out incase anything went wrong, but it didn’t.
Basically, Skylanders - a game I know nothing about has a bad guy called Painyatta. He’s a piñata, that spews out sweets and has a lolly pop for a weapon… Yeah.
Any way, at the launch event for the new game a few guys form the office built a tweet controlled bat with a piñata of Painyatta that was hit and powered by tweets - the whole thing could be watched in person at the event but more importantly via a live stream online. If you were the person whose tweet broke the piñata then you won the game and all the figures to go with it (I’m still not sure what any of those things are, but the kids loved them)
The build was slick, in physical and the digital form. Big hat tip to all involved in making it happen.
Curiosity about life in all of its aspects… Is still the secret of great creative people
At the barbers - SHARPS London, and a fine barbers it is too.
WAITING!… Just Waiting… On Friday night at Moor Park tube station.
Went over to Beavertown brewery for the afternoon, it’s located in Tottenham Hale and quite a different pub experience. Sat amongst the ingredients.
“You could have great content and know and own your knowledge but struggle to form it through your physical acts of communication.
If your content (knowledge) is good but your form (presentation skills) poor, you have probably been frustratingly overlooked and enraged at the success of hollow presenters (those with good skills but lack true knowledge).
Perhaps it is a sign of the times but I am increasingly noticing that the hollow ones are crumbling and failing while those with content are moving into the forefront as leaders. Let us harness both form and content for power.”
