Not that there was enough whacky stuff on TV! NO! It comes even worse: K1010 – will start a TV program, as mediabiz.de (in german) reports. It is an interactive-gaming show, where you can play „online“ games. But the most astonishing thing is, that scholz and friends, a very respectablly ad agency, has major parts of k1010 gmbh. it seems that money has no shame…
It will start in few minutes: at 21 CET Mr. Bush will talk to his nation – and to the world in his „state of the union“ speech. In an election-year it is the most important speech! What he will take about? He will say just little about the worse situation in iraq; I think the cenatral themes will be of inner-political kind: he has to find a moderate position between the conservative and the democratic voters. maybe about health care? Anyway, let`s see, and if you are able to watch it: do it 😉
we all know about the major problem of the internet: find the right information you need. so, uddi.org is going to implement a new standard (basing on xml, …) to connect webservices. the goal i see in it, is to connect different businesses togehter: why should the internet customer book his flight, his hotel, his car,…, at different companies?connect them with one standard, and he gets nice holidays just by booking the hotel. the rest will be done automatically: based on the data the user filled in when booking the hotel, a car will be rented (by choosing the cheapest one from the different connected carcompanies), the flight will be booked (by choosing from the cheapest airline) and so on. it is a very interesting technology, and when you see, which companies stand behind it, you can guess, it will be a success (maybe..;-)
what an astonishing news: t-mobile started its first umts service on thursday. as n24.de reports, nokia is going to sell the first umts handy next week.
Due to the fact, that modern anti-copy-piracy technology burns each track twice on one music cd (one to be played in your cd-rom device, and one that is not able to be copied), news.com reports, that musicicians want to get the double amount of money. Well, somehow it`s logically, but it´s even more „chilli“ into the the „discussion-soup“ about music-piracy…

As news.com reports, morgan freeman is going to release his new movie same time in cinema and as a streaming in the internet. Well, in my opinion it`s the first step of a new internet evolution.
As adweek.com reports, the organization you might have heard of „moveon.org“ (which has just finished it`s „president in 30 second“ -campaign against the reelection of Mr. Bush). is going to buy the superbowl. It would be the first time that a political advocacy group would advertise in the Big Game!
As adage.com reports, alloy.com was able to make a MTV-Superstar in less than two month! I tink it`s quite astonishing, how the right marketing-mix is able to push it? Or is it rather frightening…?
