A Thought On: Storytelling in the CLOT X Terracotta Jordan 13s REVIEW – The Power of Stories and the quality of creativity

We go again,

Just saw these, thought they were amazing and deeped the concept and just loved it design application aside this is a real good concept with storytelling in pictures giving off a quality feel. If the oldest recorded history had sneakers they’d wear Jordan’s ūüėāūüėā, I’m literally laughing.

But that’s joy, me when I was 8-15 the history buff that I was this would have added to my story of where I am now. – In design, telling great stories; creating exceptional product – my 12 year old self would have loved the socks off of this Jordan, would have inevitably be the Jordan that would be my first.

Why do I say all of this because I’m my mo sneakers no stories I spoke greatly about the lack of stories and how that impacts the sale of sneakers, telling great stories (like songs) induces great ideas in young minds worthy of exploring. Once more the quality of the product almost comes secondary to the story told and association it holds. I’m in love with ancient history and things told before records were kept, have been enamoured with it for decades. Me as a kid who loved the Mummy films and knew much about the terracotta warriors would be immediately taken at 8 and now in my 20’s. Why? Because the weight of the association it holds is heavy and if in any form I can be part of that story I will.

This is a call to great designers and storytellers to work hand in hand on briefs to create product that speak to the imagination of the youth and adults. I right now am digging deep to find an outfit worthy of rocking the Terracotta 13’s all because of the story and nary because of the design.

A Tech Riff on Incorporating Drones into our Lives. 

we go again,

A tech riff on incorporating drones into our I’ve been sitting on this understanding for quite some time now. So I appreciate drone tech (& innovations in general) so I decided to ponder on what it would actually take to incorporate drones into commerce and have them viable for retail. This is what I came up with.
First there will need to be some air traffic control in case of theft and drones knocking into each other. You see amazon alone does around 1.6million deliveries a per day let alone all the other parcel delivery companies out there. The air space will be filled with a number of drones¬†collateral damage and shrinkage needs to be kept to a minimum so ‘parcel patrol’ is warranted – Receive your parcel will be significantly quicker depending on weight – something that also needs to be factored, the weight of a parcel and it’s contents must have a limit in weight or be contained in such a way that it will never drop. Because at 100m in the air the drop of a 5kg let alone a 30 or 50kg parcel will do significant damage. Another thing and the most intriguing for me on this point is. Routes, just like a commercial aircraft has routes so would these drones as well as controller hubs and communication devices. It will be quite the spectacle to analyse what would be the legal minimum for a drone to have to be used for retail.
Second point being the architecture. This is the reason I even started thinking about this and the most interesting part. The whole landscape of the architecture across the world needs to change. A fair majority of the population in major cities live in massive apartment complexes. This means enclosed spaces. There are a couple ways to go about this, create platforms for drones to be able to drop in a specific apartment. Get drones to go through the entrance like all normal human traffic. Or the most considered one in my mind have a reception depot at the top of most buildings – This one idea here will indeed create millions of jobs as respective parcel personnel would have to be hired, a significant amount of construction will have to be done for “parcel ports” to be created on top of buildings.
This covers much of my thinking on how I believe it will go down. The last one would be law consideration because all in drones are a very futuristic idea and will create a massive amount of tech jobs and business opportunities. For – and it a big ask – the government create law & consideration way out my expertise for the construction for most of these things for the sake of commercial viability. Because just as much as it is dangerous how I see it is that a closest step towards the next frontier of innovation that will happen within the next ten years.

A Thought: MICRO-INFLUENCER

We go again,

What I want to talk about isn’t a new thing, it’s not an astounding thing, it’s just something that exists. And exist in many forms. The micro-influencer is a cultural icon¬†and must be applauded for their placement and strategic influence in the social space. Whatever you like on Facebook, retweet on Twitter, or reblog on Tumblr¬†it is because a micro-influencer allowed you to see it.

Just like one of my favourite orators, Pulitzer Prize-winning Will Durant, this is a shameless worship of heroes, a light on these social heroes that stand high above the rest with their newsworthy exploits, like how they are literally exploited by “True Media” & “Real News”. Such big media outlets are not fast enough to actually pick up on such stories as these men women and trans people.

In a space where there is cultural relevance, there is a micro-influencer in the wing to cross the ball into the box for these misguided behemoths. All trends were made and given to the youth by the youth, when you’re of the old guard respect and play your position and listen to what the youth tell you.

The youth create, good or bad in your opinion it is a fact it was the cause of the old guard it is that way. You see descent and decay it was the cause of the old guard. Greatness and Potential, the old guard. The micro-influencer sheds light on them all, and when you have a cluster of them together the effect is Virality. It is a simple fact that a few or more “Mavens” (in the words of Malcolm Gladwell) have the potential to create phenomenon so much so quality is only a matter of taste.

For what it’s worth I find it all beautiful as a 20SMTHNG, the potential of my generation’s ability to connect across continents. Simply astounding and can’t wait to see where it goes. As long as the people’s media lives so do the micro-influencer.
