Top 10 Daddy’s Little Girl Commercials of All Time

I love my son. He’s the best thing that happened to me. My son turned 2 last month. Extremely hard for the first year, but now I don’t know what I would do with my life without him. That’s why I want another clone. Wife and I are trying for our second. Hope it’s a girl tho. Always wanted a sister growing up. I remember watching a Kodak commercial when I was a little kid back in the day. Even as a child, I knew that the bond a daddy has with his daughter is something special.

Since I work in Advertising, I wanted to do a Top 10 List with one of my blog posts.

So here it goes…

Linsanity

When Linsanity happened, I just became a new dad. I remember watching the Knicks vs Nets game on my iPhone and just smiling. My son must have been just a few months old.

Jeremy Lin instantly became my second favorite player. I’m from LA so naturally Kobe will remain 1st. But during the Knicks vs Lakers game, I was secretly rooting for Lin.

I grew up a huge hoops fan. My dream was to play in the NBA. I always told my younger brother that I would buy him a sweet ride if I ever made it. I never told this dream to my parents, but I was going to get them a house.

Anyway, the documentary (Linsanity) wasn’t that great, but It was nice to relive those moments.

Watching it now, I feel something tho.

Shit happens in life. Good and bad. And when the moment strikes, go all in and it can quickly turn into something magical.

This applies to a poker hand or career path. When it’s time to go for the kill, give it everything.

We rarely ever get second chances in life, so might as well swing for the fences.

I’m kind of in a funk right now. Things are good. But I should be doing more. The rhythm is perfect. I got a great hand. I should double down and feel confident that I’ll win that hand.

Emoji Analytics

Was going thru my Facebook feed and came across an interesting article about the emoji subculture. Even clicked over to a really cool emoji tracker that counts the number of emoji’s used on twitter in realtime.

I first ran across emoji’s when i upgraded from iPhone 2 to iPhone 3. I saw that one of the top paid apps was emoji something or other. The icon had a whole bunch of emoticons and thought nothing of it.

6 years later it’s big business. I’m thinking that emoji’s are used more often than photos. Think about it for a second.
This tiny little square smiley faces are contain a lot of info. Apply this to big brands and you have something big.

Big Brands pay hundreds of millions of dollars to better understand consumer habits. Facebook, twitter, and other major platforms make most of their money off of big brands. Emoji Analtyics can provide so much more than, likes, comments, or shares. It can tell you if a brand makes consumers smile. Or if the brand makes the consumer angry.

This is one of my startup ideas. If you are interested leave me a comment below.

The future of jobs

I keep seeing hip hop artists and nba players talking about coding. What’s going on?

The world is changing. That’s what’s going on.

Old school standards for intelligence is changing. We no longer need to use our brain to process information.

We no longer need to memorize numbers or names. We have Google to take care of that for us.

The only thing skill that will be in need in the future will be the ability to communicate or interact with machines.

Google glass is just a side project at the moment, but it’s a game changer. Think about it. We will have access to Google all the time. I know some of you are saying that this is already the case with the iPhone. No it isn’t. We still need to take the phone out and punch in data to access info. Or to shoot a photo. With a Google glass type of device, it will be on all the time. Everything will be recorded. Every conversation will be accompanied by a never-ending feed of info.

You won’t have to remember anything. You won’t even need to do anything.

The way we search for info will also change. Goole will know what you want to ask before you even type or speak.

Scary shit but this is where we are headed.

Jobs? Our consumer based economy will keep our jobs safe for at least another few generations. But the good ones will be taken by people who know how to interact with machines. That’s where coding comes in.

Coding is like art. You’re creating something out of thin air. Complex games, full service platforms, online stores, are all created by some geek that understands a computer language.

The divide will happen here. Those who can’t create will have shit jobs. And those that have the power to create…the sky is the limit.
