    500 Most (Over)Used Passwords

    I wanted to repost this list from a blog that seems to have become defunct.

    The subject: passwords… and how as human beings we tend to gravitate to the same ones. Even the “clever” ones like ncc1701 (number of the Starship Enterprise) and thx1138 (George Lucas’ first movie) are not so clever.

    Approximately 1 out of 9 people use at least one password on the list and 1 out of 50 people use one in the top 20.

    So, if you see your password listed below, your should probably change it.

    Gauging Anxiety Around the World

    If you ever wondered just how nervous other countries are about terrorism and the economy then surf on over to AnxietyIndex. The site is brought to you by international marketing communications company JWT as a tool to help brands gauge consumer anxiety.

    In times of heightened consumer anxiety, what brands need is real-time data that can help them navigate a rapidly changing landscape—they need answers to new questions and a point of view on the types of businesses and business practices that will emerge.

    The index examines safety and security concerns—the threat of terrorism, potential and current military hostilities, crime, etc.—and economic worries, such as the cost of health care, the cost of living and job security.

    The idea is if you understand what consumers are worried about then you can make a more informed decision about your marketing strategy.

    Last Day Dream

    Truly enjoy the works of Chris Milk but the Last Day Dream (a man watches his life pass before him) is one of my favorites because it is so simple yet poignant.

    Produced for the 42 Second Dream Film Festival in 2009; I originally stumbled upon this video about a year ago. This is one of the things I love about the Web… I started out watching this Gnarls Barkley’s cover of Gone Daddy Gone (featuring a very sexy Nina Bergman looking all “girl next door”) on Vimeo, which in turn led me to this freaky little musical short Who’s Gonna Save My Soul, which in turn led me to Chris Milk’s Vimeo channel. But by the time I had the chance to post a link on this blog, Vimeo had taken the video down (not sure why). Fortunately, Chris recently uploaded it to his new YouTube channel.

    Anyway, enjoy! And yes, that is Pauly Shore punching you in the face.

    There are many opportunities to market your business to Facebook’s massive membership (400 million and counting). One of the more insidious ways is to insert your brand right into an established “ecosystem” where people are already actively engaged. The immensely popular social game FarmVille is one such ecosystem. Not only does it engage millions of players for hours on end but it has marketing “hooks” built into the game play itself.

    FarmVille is a free, browser-based game played through your Facebook account where you harvest crops, feed chickens, and converse with other farmers. At the time of this post, there are over 73 million people playing FarmVille with 26 million playing everyday. It is, in fact, the most popular game online. More people play FarmVille than World of Warcraft so it comes as no surprise that Zynga (the company behind FarmVille) has a revenue run-rate of $600 million. Even in the current recession, the video game industry did nearly $20 billion last year in the US alone.

    One of the paradoxical reasons FarmVille is so successful for Zynga is that players can sidestep the tedious task of farming (e.g. clicking a hundred times to harvest crops or plow a field) by “buying” equipment with FarmVille Cash, effectively accelerating the process of advancing your player’s XP. This virtual cash can be acquired by leveling up (one FarmVille dollar per level) or spending actual real-world cash.

    To promote its “decision engine” Bing, Microsoft offered FarmVille players free FarmVille Cash if they became a fan of Bing on Facebook. As a result:

    • Over 72% of players who clicked on the promo became fans
    • Over 59,000 people published the promo to their news feed
    • Over 70,000 clicks were received on secondary feeds
    • Over 400,000 new fans within 24 hours

    Microsoft stated social media goals are to increase Bing’s user engagement in a positive, intimate, and scalable way and to do this by providing relevant value. The company’s experiment with FarmVille achieves this in spades without being intrusive or overbearing.
