Trends, Watching, Publishing Notes

Piers Fawkes has posted a quick blurb about trends, watching and publishing talk he gave to students at Parsons in New York. His comments on watching reminded me about what swissmiss recommended I do in NYC. She encouraged me to find a place and just stand/sit there. Take a period of time and watch all the things go by. It was great advice.

Piers comment on watching. “You can learn about trends from anywhere – and normally anywhere outside your cozy situation. It’s taking a step back and watching but also, it’s an active consumption of media: we live in an amazing info-saturated world where we have these amazing tools to dig for trend information: human edited blogs, search terms, RSS, buzz monitors and Digg.”
