Pete Blackshaw reloads our buzzword bingo with The Official Social Media and Mobile Glossary of 2010

Finally we can burn the old ad dictionary as Pete Blackshaw has written The Official Social Media and Mobile Glossary of 2010 which contains such gems as spurned media, wiki wart and Oedipost complex. It's funny as hell.

TWEET-SHIFTING: Delaying or mixing Twitter posts so axe murderers don't know you're miles from home. Increasingly common as a spousal and family covenant among folks who travel with high frequency.

CURBCASTING: The almost unstoppable cacophony of loud voices barking all manner of silliness into the airwaves thanks to Bluetooth devices. You see this on every street corner and curb.


Predictions for 2010 in Adland

Everyone does it, so lets join in with the predictions pulled out of a hat. This is what we believe will happen in 2010. Make a bingo-card out of it and see.

  • 1 - Micropayments will finally come of age. They'll be used to pay creatives for their work.
  • 2 - Individuals as media channels , big brands on T-shirts are so 90s, now we want the consumer to Bambuse live as they shop at H&M and air this on their own facebook page. Someone is working on a campaign that encourages this type of behavior right now.
  • 3 -Crowdsourcing comes of age and the worlds first worldwide union, the CSGotW (Crowd Sourcing Guild of the World) enters the scene.
  • 4 - The full service ad agency will die a new breed of agencies will emerge, specializing in creating content for the types of media that are barely invented yet.
  • 5 - Your mom still won't understand, at family gatherings and as she introduces you to her friends, she never manages to explain your job right. Settle for "s/he works in advertising" and leave it at that.

    New bulb joke I haven't told you before.

    Q. How many designers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    A. I think really the issue is not so much the lighbulb in this case, but the relationship between the lightbulb and the ceiling around it, and if were to introduce a lighbulb at this point, what knock on effect would that have on the room in general. A lightbulb in this context may seem like a small addition but in actuality could have an effect on the whole which will require a considerable amount of subtle work to be carried out on the general interior design which would, of course, result in budgetary issues for you. Not saying we couldn't screw it in, but best to establish a baseline for this at an early stage.
