The Style in Berlin is No Fashion

The Style in Berlin is No Fashion

I like to rib my German friends in Berlin because they’re always wearing these silly Chairman Mao hats — everyone wears OD green and black caps. If you want some good advice to help you look cool while visiting or living in Berlin, please just dress like a distressed communist revolutionary student protester… blue jeans, Adidas soccer shoes, hoodies, leather coats or bomber jackets — dark colors — but you can wear these until you’re deep in your 40s so buying an assortment of them is a worthwhile investment. I like to call it “Vanguard of the Proletariat Fashion.”

Caught at Schneerot Bar: Libia, Kike, Frank, and Me

We four, from left, Kike, Libia, Chris, and Frank, stopped in for mojitos at Schneerot Bar last Friday night. It was DJ night so we were caught on film and ended up on the Schneerot Blog.

Today Was an Amazing Day (and Night) in Berlin

The last couple days have been great. I have spent some time away from work with Colombian visitors, Kike and Libia, friends of Clau and Frank. Some drinks last night and then brunch, the market, dinner, and then the night out on the town. You can watch it all via Twitter, with all the details, from the start to the end. I have to go to sleep now because tomorrow is another breakfast together. And then who knows what else. Also, I apparently know how to speak Spanish. Who knew!

Blogger Outreach is About the Permanent Record

At the end of the day, this is all about getting into permanent record. Second Life may be cool, and so may be IM, but these are all ephemeral — the web and the blogosphere is indexed and exists much longer and to greater effect the longer and deeper the penetration a site has into Google’s, Technorati’s, and Ask.com’s site indices.

Social Network Profiles are Not Fancy Personal Home Pages

Social Network Profiles are Not Fancy Personal Home Pages

Creating a space for your members to “show off” or “express themselves” is less important than giving members to interact. They crave connection and will pursue any perceived connection such as shared interests, hometowns, movies, orientation, or schools.

About Abraham Harrison LLC

About Abraham Harrison LLC

Traditional advertising, public relations, and marketing agencies are spending a lot of money and poaching a lot of talent to convince you they get how to reach folks online, but they don't. They're putting lipstick on a pig. Madison Avenue doesn't get it, 50-year-old firms don't get it, and your local PR shop doesn't get it either.

Manolo Blahnik Feminism: the Right to Choos

I call the new feminism Manolo Blahnik Feminism, which is a super-sexual, super-sexy, and super-confusing form of self-empowerment. Ariel Levy calls it "raunch culture" and I believe that it is going to blow up in American women's faces.
