Intel’s Visual Life Campaign

“The people you know, the places you visit, the things that inspire you… together, these represent your unique Visual Life, and we want to celebrate it! People from around the world have uploaded photos and videos giving us a peek inside their visual lives.” From Intel’s Website

Share Your Visual Life

Share Your Visual Life

Ad agency, Amsterdam Worldwide, unveiled a series of blogger films, called “Visual Life,” for technology brand Intel back in January 2011. The series showcased top bloggers discussing how they use technology and how it has transformed their work.

Campaign Idea & Buzz:

The first video of the series documented the work of fashion blogger and photographer Scott Schumann, The Sartorialist. The video generated around a quarter of a million views in its first two weeks and has been viewed more than 850,000 times on YouTube and the Intel site, helping increase Intel’s YouTube channel views by 200%.

A Case for Asking People to Keep Their Mobiles ON

Too often when attending talks or conferences, people are asked to turn off their cellphones in order to not disturb the environment there. While I do agree that hearing an out-of-tune symphony ring tone is annoying to say the least, and I encourage asking people to put their phones on silent, I also think that people should encourage the attendees to keep their phones ON and share their experience with the world.

This is by far the best case I’ve seen for this argument, because nowadays anything that doesn’t make a blip on social media, at least locally, was not worth holding and went completely unnoticed.

What do you think about encouraging people to share their experiences in conferences and meetings? Share with us your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below.
