t_exceptionallThis site’s free, diagnosis monthly Trend Briefings are not to be missed if you want to see the forest for the trees, showing the larger trends underlying diverse examples from around the world. A recent briefing cited corporate bloggers and tweeters, a San Francisco-based chocolatier that produces “beta editions” of its chocolates, and Google’s Latitude (which lets you see where people are geographically) as part of its “Foreverism” trend on how consumers and businesses are embracing conversations, relationships and products that are never done. For spot-on analysis, global perspective and big-picture context, this is your go-to resource.
