We still live in a world that's filled with opportunity. In fact, we have more than an opportunity -- we have an obligation. An obligation to spend our time doing great things. To find ideas that matter and to share them. To push ourselves and the people around us to demonstrate gratitude, insight, and inspiration. To take risks and to make the world better by being amazing.
- Seth Godin

What's the Buzz About Buzz Marketing?
Knowledge@Wharton

There's a new marketing catchphrase that's getting rave word-of-mouth reviews. From articles in the popular press to conversations in the classroom, huge companies to boutique marketing firms, suddenly it seems you can't talk about new products without addressing 'buzz marketing.' "People are buzzing about buzzing," says Wharton marketing professor Barbara Kahn. "People think it's cool. There is something almost empowering about the idea of being able to 'buzz' your way into the products people buy."

i-boy wins cross golf tournament in Vienna ... News at 11.

Well, actually, there isn't any "News at 11," but there is a new photo gallery from the tournament on crossprocess.com.

The fact that I am linking to my new photo site, crossprocess.com does not mean that I've officially lauched it. Let's just think of this as a well-planned leak for now, ok?

The 6 Myths Of Creativity
Fast Company

A new study will change how you generate ideas and decide who's really creative in your company.

These days, there's hardly a mission statement that doesn't herald it, or a CEO who doesn't laud it. And yet despite all of the attention that business creativity has won over the past few years, maddeningly little is known about day-to-day innovation in the workplace. Where do breakthrough ideas come from? What kind of work environment allows them to flourish? What can leaders do to sustain the stimulants to creativity -- and break through the barriers?

Personally, I prefer Risk and Die Siedler von Catan, but a couple of these look like fun.

Gated Content Now Drives 50% of Salon's Revenues -- Here's How it's Working
MarketingSherpa.com

When Salon gated off 20% of its site for paying subscribers only in an attempt to keep the wolf from the door back in April 2001, few media (including us) expected the tactic to really make a difference.

Three months later only 12,000 of its more than three million regular monthly visitors had paid up, and the site was out hat-in-hand again looking for investors to keep afloat during the worst of the recession. Subscriptions were not the golden pill that solves all ills.

Three and a half years later we didn't expect to be writing this story. At an estimated $2 million per year in subscription sales plus an additional estimated half a million in Day Pass ad sales, that 20% of gated content is now contributing roughly half of Salon's total income.

If Salon hadn't taken the gating step, it's doubtful they'd still be around today -- despite the goodwill of kindly investors. According to SEC filings for quarter ended Sept 31st, things are still a bit shaky. But for the first time, we've got real hope that the site is entering solid financial ground for the long-term.

We interviewed Senior VP Marketing Patrick Hurley to discover how the site's learned to make subscriptions pay off finally....
