Geek videos are cool

Posted on February 13, 2008


Random thought for the day… geek videos ARE, in fact, cool.  Take, for example, this one about Scrabulous:

Which brings me to something else — one of the BEST ways you can market to my generation is to take something away from us.  Scrabulous, Tom Cruise videos, whatever it is… deny us access and we only want more.  Now, I understand that this isn’t a new concept, see  "The Streisand Effect," but it remains brilliant.

I think it’s especially relevant in my generation.  If you take something away from me, I WILL find a way to get it back.  There’s just no reason I can’t have everything I want, when I want it.
