Hi:

What a week for America.

I watched in awe as America changed faster than most of us could keep up.

  • The confederate flag started to come down
  • Obamacare was upheld as the law of the land
  • The Supreme Court ruled that “love is love”

All in a single week.

What I have for you:

  • I wrote a piece on my blog capturing the best and most popular reactions to the marriage equality ruling on facebook.
  • A few articles that show just how fast brands have jumped on the marriage equality bandwagon from Ad Age.
  • An incredible interactive graphic from Bloomberg showing how fast Americans are changing their minds on issues that we thought were never going to change.

PS: The Amazon Echo is now available to everyone! I wrote about it a few weeks ago and loved it. I still do ! Get one 🙂 !

Best,

Shaun Dakin – Dakin Associates
