Love the “Open Debate” on the last page of the June issue of Fast Company magazine between Kevin Roberts of Saatchi & Saatchi and Brian Collins of Ogilvy & Mather: Lot of take-aways and food for thought. Some of my favorites:
“Screens are the campfire storytellers of today.”
“We’ve moved into the Age of Paradox—no more either/or, no more black/white. It’s all and/and.
“Screens may be hypnotizing, but design is humanizing.”
“Ubiquity destroys intensity.”
The debate itself is the playfulness of Le‘ale‘a in action, especially conveyed by the pictures of these two gentlemen in the print issue (Here’s the link if you are a subscriber, otherwise you’ll have to wait for it to hit the online archives, or grab the magazine at your nearest newsstand.)
“Resolved: The most powerful way to touch people is through screens.” is the byline of the article, but I beg to differ” I think Collins won the debate.
The Managing with Aloha question is, what about all the people in the world (the vast majority) who have no access to the screens they are talking about?
