Splendid Sundays Volume 22

Sunday, January 10, 2010

A handful of splendid finds and interesting tidbits from around the worldwide web:

*The website for Engage!10 launches today with details on the conferences in June and October. Check it out and if you have any questions about whether or not this conference is a good fit for your wedding business, please feel free to email me at hello{at}thinksplendid.com (and no, my answer won't be an automatic "yes" - Engage is purposefully designed to not be for everyone).  

*Defriending Facebook (thanks to Rebekah Burder at Honeysuckle Life for the link)

*iPhone cases that actually have style (thanks to Christy at Junebug Weddings for this link)

*Can harmony be found between design blogs and design magazines from a business perspective? Elle Decor thinks so.

*Book of the week: Buyology: Truth and Lies About Why We Buy by Martin Lindstrom. From a review on Amazon: Lindstrom carried out a global survey of customers using brain-scanning so he could peer into their minds as they observed various logos and such. Along the way he presents intriguing, and at times devastating, scientific findings on brands (Apple computers light up the same region of the brain as do pictures of rosary beads and churches), subliminal advertising and tobacco, and most startling of all . . . that cigarette warning labels, rather than discouraging smokers, actually make them want to smoke.

Do you have any splendid finds to share?
