  • Flea markets, swap meets draw crowds: “Flea markets have seen a 10% to 15% increase in attendance during the recession.”
  • Atoms For Bits: “With more and more of our artifacts being replaced by digital files, when do physical objects matter, and why?” Very interesting essay by friend of Murketing Carla Diana on creating (in essence) meaningful physical containers for our immaterial (digital) possessions. Consumed on immaterialism here.
  • On the Street and On Facebook: “In America today, even people without street addresses feel compelled to have Internet addresses.”
  • When women hide behind their children on Facebook: “A larger and more ominous self-effacement, a narrowing of our worlds.”
  • Links compiled via delicious, and repurposed here with plug-in Postalicious.

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.
