I went a big mad on Amazon last week, it's just how I roll sometimes.
As is usual with me, I managed to lace something simple with a flavour of muppetry and embarrassment. How? By forgetting to put my name on the delivery address.
That would have been find if it was just one parcel, but on no sir, not me. I bought from a smorgasbord of third parties, resulting in 7 parcels dripping in over 5 days, all arriving at work's reception with no name, meaning I had to continually do the walk of shame to pick them up, in answer to the 'all users' email, "Has some muppet ordered from Amazon without a name, who isn't Andrew?".
Two highlights. One is Baked In by Bokuskyof Crispin Porter fame. Have a look at their site for 28 recipes for modern marketing thinky stuff. I don't usually read or recommend 'work related' books, but this is worth a look. The site is a good example of 'un-book' too.
Another arrival worth sharing is the book of 'We Feel Fine'. The site is beautiful, but the book is thoughtful, moving and ably demonstrates how screeny, flashy, electronic stuff is all well and good, but there's nothing like touching something real. I love social study type things, this is one of them that works really well.
