I love real-time marketing, but two things I love more are chocolate and how Australians sound when they get angry. So when I found out that Snickers in Australia ran a campaign to drive the Aussies' hanger up and the prices of their chocolate down, I got excited. Then when I read more about it and found out it used an algorithm to do all of this based on real-time topical messaging and social media posts I absolutely lost it. Kudos Snickers, you did good!

Hooray! A healthy Asian elephant has been born in Belgium and I can't wait to find out what they call him. It was such a tragic loss last summer with his sister, but successful breeding with elephants is so important to me as, well, an elephant! I'm thrilled to know that our population is growing, and that we're being well looked after with breeding programs.
