Get your ad banned if you want it to pop (like a polar bear's...

The 'interwebs' are filled with commercials proudly and boldy described as 'banned'. There is almost no better link bait (he writes shamelessly aware of this very post's title).

Power business networking, Japanese style

If you've ever attended a networking event and been introduced to someone who spends the next few minutes looking over your shoulder at who else he/she could be talking to, know that it could be worse. You could have Professor Himonya's undivided attention.

Manager arrested for NOT tweeting

The advantages that some companies have gained from an intelligently deployed social media strategy has placed other businesses under increased pressure to get tweeting. However, while Twitter has become a permanent weapon in many marketers' arsenals, few users face the threat of arrest for not tweeting.

Labour Day, Bangladesh style

As Victorians head off for the Labour Day long weekend, this video -- shot by a tourist in Khulna, Bangladesh in 2008 -- is a good reminder that the concept of hard work is relative. You might feel like you've moved heaven and earth with the sweat of your brow this week, but it's unlikely you'd call transporting 22 bricks on your head just another day at the office.

I Just Made Love: Web users plot their love making online

There is a moment in the very 'lovable' French film Amelie when its main character (of the same name) tries to imagine how many people are making love in Paris at an exact moment in time. It's cute, it's quaint, it's strangely 'loveable' and, now, it's almost possible to get verifying data as to the accuracy of her guess.

Guy In A House With Too Much Time On His Hands

Some people have too much time on their hands. This is absurd, yet I cannot look away.

Wacky Websites: Wonder what you'd look like thinner? Just upload your photo.

ThinnerView.com doesn't promise to deliver you six-pack abs while you munch crisps on the couch watching trashy telly. It doesn't even promise to get you off the couch and into a gym. It invites you to upload a photo of your current self, then digital artists shave off the amount of kilos you wish to shed (2-50kgs) and you are sent the altered image - the thinner view of you - to pin on the wall and remind you of how much better you could look (fatty).

Is Steve Ballmer too kooky to be running Microsoft?

It must be difficult heading up one of the world's largest companies. Harder still trying to emerge from the shadow of that company's founder, one of the world's most famous men. And then there's the issue of a new competitor muscling in on your turf - one that can do no wrong in the eyes of the public. How frustrating!
