Be the skin – be the game #LeWeb


Below is the Hugh graphic for LeWeb last year  “Faster than Real time” – and arguably louder than bombs -this digital, social, attention competing, infinitely searchable space is still as scatty as Hugh’s drawing.

Some times its nice to switch it off. Some times its nice to hold a book, break the spine, sniff the pages – but then I get really frustrated that I cant Evernote the content, I end up making Siri notes as I go along and I take pictures of the graphics so I can drag them into slide decks.

Thankfully my BT Broadband gets a tizzy at some point most evenings, and I loose you all for 5 minutes. But then Im lost – I’m still insatiable and still wanting.

In Hugh’s picture I like”

“This is the mountain I have chosen – this is the Mountain I will die on.”

Focus, choice, commitment, destiny.

Where do you find your mountain?

  1. Ah, I am not the only one taking pictures of (physical) book pages, then. Phew…

    PS – I am not sure you get to choose the mountain, though. I think the mountain chooses you, though we may rationalise it and say it was our informed choice.

  2. Taking picture is far more reliable than than taking Siri notes – some of the output is mind bending – “Did I really say that, Siri?”

    PS – I like the idea of “The mountain chooses you” you’re going to spend a lot of time together – it better be a two-way thing…
