Interesting stories about marketing and digital


3 stories worth sharing this week:
  1. Being Nice Is The New Punk
    Punk ideology is specifically anti-establishment and pro-individuality. It's vehemently against the idea of selling out by embracing mainstream habits. But if punk means opposing the current zeitgeist and fighting the establishment that means... being polite. It means being considerate, respectful, principled, kind and generous. Be everything the establishment isn’t. Polite is the new punk. Fuck the system. Be nice. [Politics, 4min]
  2. The Modern Trap of Turning Hobbies Into Hustles
    Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life work super fucking hard all the time with no separation or any boundaries and also take everything extremely personally. [Man Repeller, 6min]
  3. The Hipster Effect
    Complexity science explains why our efforts to reject mainstream culture merely result in a new conformity. The hipster effect is the counterintuitive phenomenon in which anti-conformists all end up looking the same. Similar effects occur among investors and in other areas of the social sciences. [MIT Technology Review, 4min]

A quote I'm thinking about:

“To be absolutely certain about something, one must know everything or nothing about it.” 

–  Henry Kissinger
