Likemind Friday in Copenhagen

Friday we had our first Likemind Cph. gathering at Risteriet.

Nine early risers made it this cold but sunny spring morning. Since it was our first Likemind I think it was quite ok to see that many faces for a premiere - mostly coming from the Danish planning community. The discussions where around many different subjects, the ultimate centre of attention though, where the Mattel Badge Maker - designed to make you do a badge on the spot.

Suggestions where many – from our Frenchman Bertrand’s “Vive La Stratégie” to the very optimistic Yes badge (Ja, in Danish) from Rikke. I’m sure we are going to see lot’s of very professional pre-produced suggestions next time.

Next time we hope to see lots of new faces and people from more diverse backgrounds (we would like to se both you Maria, and you Einar).

The Likemind date for next month is April 20th - same time, same place.

Likemind Cph.

We have just been officially uploaded to Piers Fawkes and Noah Briers Likemind worldwide coffee morning mafia ( I’m one of the hosts here in Copenhagen and the details for the first coffee morning are:

where: Risteriet, Studiestræde 36, Copenhagen (MAP)
when: friday, march 16 at 8am (CET)

For anyone not aware of the concept it’s an opportunity to enjoy coffee and conversation with likeminded people - likeminded as in people within the wider world of communication. Probably for the people that are both curious and conversational about topics like “what’s interesting in communication right now”. People coming from background as: planners, digital wizards, agency creative’s, designers, marketing department strategist or other similar backgrounds.

So please spread the word if you know anyone, who is in Copenhagen and ready to go.

Our newly formed CPG (Communication Planning Group) a Danish equivalent to the British APG is behind, amongst others. We are an association of planners from both advertising and media agencies who in the name of a more overall communication planning and media-neutral approach have gathered forces. So far it’s been a pleasure to have a closer collaboration and common agenda.

The Gondry Puzzle

Here is two of my favourite pop cultural things brought together in a little puzzle countdown. It’s Michel Gondry vs. The Rubrick Cube.

Here is the clip you should see first where Gondry does magical things with his feats

And here is the analysis and solution to the puzzle:

Youth Plnin - Create custom images

I’m doing a project that includes understanding of the wonderful world of teenagers and their relations to cell phones and more specifically to text messaging. Text messaging for me includes no codes, no abbreviations and often a lack of understanding of the messages I receive written in that txt stylee. But here is a little help to embrace the txt language yourself or get the txt translated to plain English:
