Following David Bowie's death on January 10, 2016 our television and social media news feeds were filled with posts that celebrated his talent and contributions to music. His creativity and artistry have engaged and entertained us for decades. However, Bowie demonstrated understanding and vision beyond the medium of music. This article highlights the accuracy of Bowie's Internet predictions and their relevance to marketing communications today.

I just had to share this terrific infographic and congratulate Joe Chernov, VP of Content for HubSpot and Robin Richards, of RIPETUNGI on this wonderful project. The visual impact and experience are as staggering as the data they illustrate. The infographic is too impressive to squeeze onto this intro page so I hope you'll click and read on for the full experience.

This drawing is dedicated to Caine Smith, an impressive 11-year-old PR natural who spoke out about bullying. Movie director, Lee Hirsch captured a video interview with Caine that continues to be shared virally, bringing more attention to his cause and "The Bully Project".I hope the drawing will help fuel more sharing through social media, draw ongoing attention to Caine’s story and "The Bully Project", and encourage more people to stand up, speak up and help stop bullying. Background on the story and an update on Caine are included in this article.
