Fragments for Friday

WIPO logo competition

The IPKat apologises for not having posted the winning entry for his WIPO logo competition yet - it's been one of those weeks when everything seems to take longer than it should and Jeremy is definitely running a bit slowly right now. The winner should be up on the blog by first thing next Monday at the very latest.

Slow down!

Next week (14 to 20 January 2007, that is) has been declared International Slow Down Week by Adbusters. The IPKat feels a little saddened that the Culture-Jammers' movement, which only a few years ago was making a serious contribution to the debate on where rampant consumerism was going and what could be done to counter it, is reduced to minimal impact activities such as this and its sister, Buy Nothing Day. What went wrong, he muses? Does anyone know?

Right, Kalle Lasn's Culture Jam - a wonderfully thought-provoking book that should be read by all serious consumers, manufacturers and media-spinners

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
