[nonostantement #136] - influencers & coffee / blanding / ai generated humans

Now with MORE funny animals!

Welcome to nonostantement:
a weekly newsletter with not bad, 
dishonest and memorable stuff found all over the Internet.

Buongiorno! Joele here, sending you nice links from the Internet. I collected them while working at online branding and advertising strategies. Please let me know what you think of this newsletter, you can just reply to this same email :)

Soundtrack? I don’t wanna grow up, Tom Waits. Directed by Jim Jarmusch. That’s all I have to say about it.

If you like this newsletter you can now offer me a virtual coffee to show your support :)

My little experiment – adding a “book a call” link to my websites to encourage informality and ‘serendipity’ and have random call with my contacts, to chat about… anything – will be still open for the next week. I already made 12 calls with awesome people!

You can reserve a slot here and we can have a chat about Online Strategy, Social Media Management, Content Marketing, Influencers, Editorial plans for your social channels… or whatever you want.

  • [Video] - Look, I don’t like T-Pain as an artist, but seeing him on Twitch with such a powerful intro it’s refreshing and fascinating. Video games and esports are huge. Supporting your favourite “creators” through small paid subscriptions is huge. This is something that the majority of brands, senior managers and simple users here in Europe still need to deal with.

  • So the question would be “How Can We Pay for Creativity in the Digital Age?”
    There’s still money to be made, but it’s mostly not the creators who are getting rich. I discussed about this a lot with people I met with during last week’s random informal calls I made. We didn’t find a good-for-all type of solutions, but we know a change must me made and we need to at least start discussing the matter.

  • The Instagram subculture of women hunters, “huntstagram”. This is something weird and interesting at the same time. Back in the region I come from (Tuscany) hunting is still a big thing, but it's not something so "glamorous" to think about becoming an influencer…

1960, Ruby Bridges became the first child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz elementary school. For the first 6 months Marshall's had to walk her to and from school due to lines of protesting parents threatening harm to her. She's now an activist and has gotten a presidential citizens medal


That's it for now.
