As you might or might not know, I have another blog which focuses mostly on market research, social media and speculation about how the two fit together.
I’ve been really enjoying writing for it lately, and I think it’s got rather good. I try to do stuff that’s interesting whether or not you’re in the marketing loop. Some posts, I admit, are craven attempts to write in the punchily stupid style favoured by the modern business dude, but some of them I’m pleased with. Here’s a little digest of the best recent Blackbeard stuff:
– Humanists and determinists battle for the soul of research.
– The Twitterphant in the room
– The “Bulworth Effect” and the limits of representativeness.
– What we used to believe vs what we now believe about teh internets (this is part of a series called “Digital Colonists”)
