Beancast Examines Scott Montgomery, Benetton, Face Recognition, Infographics

You may have heard of the Beancast. Created and produced by Bob Knorp, it's a weekly podcast about marketing and advertising. Last night, I joined the show along with Womenkind's Kristi Faulkner, Hopkinson Report's Jim Hopkinson and AdPulp and TalentZoo blogger Dan Goldgeiger. We discussed the Scott Montgomery's Advertising Age article in which he claimed agencies take far too much time to develop creative, facial recognition and its application to marketing, infographics and why they have suddenly made a reappearance, the Benetton kissing controversy and the implications of the apparent domination of mobile usage by minority groups.

It was a lively discussion and you can check out the show notes here, link directly to the podcast here or grab it off iTunes here.
