Material is added every day. It is far bigger than you could ever imagine. I don't blame you for backing out, with a polite cough. I'll never know."

"In 2004, we wrote about the most hated advertising techniques based on research conducted by Christian Rohrer and John Boyd.

A new commercial building in Tokyo where the facade is a giant QR code: "If a QR Code is static, what could we do with a dynamic device like the iPhone?
