Webby for ASIS

Screenshot of prospective applicant

Congratulations the Government. ASIS took off a Webby Award for their site ‘The Most Interesting Job Interview’, a recruitment campaign for Australia’s spy agency. [Australian spies good. Foreign spies bad.]

400,000 people have taken the simulated job interview. Click the friendly-looking spy to join the club.

New Zealand also won a Webby for best use of animation on a website. Well done ‘bro. Just keep your evil spies out of our country.

Here’s the winner for Best Media Strategy: it’s Amazon Echo’s launch into India. A pre-roll campaign that promoted their music search capability without paying a rupee to music copyright owners. Sigh.

Gridlock: the opportunity

5K of gridlock in the Guandong province leading up to Chinese New Year. Nearly 3 billion trips over five weeks and still growing at 12% p.a. Interest in traffic (avoiding it) is at an all time high.

A hundred years ago

She looks up from the newspaper. “Darling there’s a job advertisement here; I think you should apply.”

Newspaper ad placed by Shackleton. 'Hazardous journey, bitter cold' etc

Actually, it’s a Fake Ad, according to the Smithsonian. Shackleton had lots of free publicity and lots of applicants, so there was no need to take out a paid ad. In spite of a reward, no-one has been able to unearth any evidence of the original ad.
