Of Post-It-Notes and noveau bush tucker

As expected, the Mother's Day marketing juggernaut is currently running at full speed. But 3M has taken a rather novel approach to promoting its wares: it spent two days putting up over 8000 Super Sticky Post-It-Notes on the window of Whitcoulls in Auckland's Queen St and then asked passersby to pen their own special messages to Mum.

3M, which also put up an arty, dotty installation on the wall of the Wellington City Art gallery last year, are giving away flowers to Mums whose loved ones have posted winning entries. Awwww. Post-It-Notes: for the mum that has everything.

Which is a perfect segue to Bear Grylls. He has a mother. And he also has a show called Man Vs Wild that's currently playing on Prime TV. DraftFCB has dished up this new take on bush tucker, a range of different wilderness infused takeaways that aim to promote the show and bring attention to the rather adventurous palate of the mad host (hat tip: www.mymodernmet.com).

And while we're talking about various cool things, if you haven;t seen it already, check out the interactive Shihad music video for Sleepeater that was created by the digi-boffins at Oktobor.

Social responsibility: Facebook in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque terror attack

Friday 15 March started out as a day of hope in New Zealand. Social media was awash with posts, images and stories about the nation’s teenagers taking to the streets to demand action on climate change. Tens of thousands of school students took part in the demonstrations, which stretched the length of the country from Southland to the Bay of Islands. However, by late afternoon, social media was filled with a completely different nationwide movement: an outpouring of grief about the Christchurch mosque terror attack.
