Symposium on Brand Sense

Since here at KMB we usually discuss a lot of advertisements and their brand worthiness, i thought this event would be a perfect followup to that theme.

Revelation proudly presents, for the first time in Pakistan
A groundbreaking must-attend training workshop for all marketers…

Brand sense Symposium by Martin Lindstrom
Build Powerful Brands through Touch, Taste, Smell, Sight, and Sound
16th September 2006 at Sheraton Hotel and Towers

    KMB Authors….
    Do not mind but I think you guys are putting out articles too fast. I understand the zeal and excitement of new authors but its too fast to digest. I think a reader needs more time to contemplate and comment.

    It is a pleasure to know about the symposium, I won’t miss it for anything:)

    and Yoyo I agree, I guess we are too quick in our postings or maybe Karachi has a lot to talk about :). I think KMB will get back to a more controlled pace in a few days.

    Well I would like to differ with Yo Yo. I think the pace is okay..this shows that so much is happening in our beloved city. I guess this also shows the pace of ‘development’ taking place all across the city.

    Arsalan..You have a good point. But the problem with KMB is that it has one webpage where articles from all topics are posted. If it was categorized according to genere. I think it would give more shelf life to a new article. Right now new articles are disappearing from the main page too fast for readers to comment and discuss.

    Hmm… good point… i’ll try 2 slow down the pace a little too..

    I honestly think the pace is just fine — YoYo, you must not be checking metblogs everyday unlike some KMB fans who do and who expect new material on the blog on a daily basis. (e.g. me).
    I have yet to see former posts pass on the next page, and even if they do, so what? It’s not difficult to check former posts.
    KMB posters, please keep your pace the same. Thanks.

    @YoYo:

    Try this(http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/2006/05/metroblogging_k_1.phtml),i did this to solve similar problem as it was very uncomfortable for me to open atleast two pages for visint multiple posts.

    Dear yoyo, I think the pace is going fine. Karachi is a “happening” city afterall. What can you do? And if you check out the bottom of the KMB page, you’ll see archives and title of every posted topic. I can bet, you won’t a miss a thing after playing around categories and archived topics.

    Mansoor dear, I am sorry…looks like I have hijacked your post.

    For Afreen, Danny and others I think you have a good point of view. I actually do not read KMB as a news source. But more as a way to intereact with others on a certain topic. This is the major difference between mainstream print/electronic media and the blog world. I read many interesting topics in DAWN but you can’t really discuss it real time. I find that when a post goes of off the KMB front page readers stop discussing and lot of questions go unanswered. Just my thoughts.


  11. mansoor (unregistered) on June 24th, 2006 @ 12:20 am

    yo yo: no problem at all… any discussion is a good sign :D


  12. danny (unregistered) on June 24th, 2006 @ 1:14 am

    Yo-yo – that is definitely a good point and I completely agree – While reading slightly older posts (ones that are not on the homepage), I’ll leave questions that go unanswered and notice other questions that have been unanswered.
    Readers seem to be most responsive only to the articles that are on the main page.

    A suggestion for the Metroblogs folks — maybe we can have some sort of way to show which posts have been recently commented on so that if readers have been following a certain post and are interested in knowing when someone’s commented on that post they will be able to know.

    This is not a new feature — it’s used in many bulleting boards online. What say?


  13. mansoor (unregistered) on June 24th, 2006 @ 10:22 am

    danny: this feature is already present here on metblogs. On the sidebar on your right, just click on “Recent Comments” that will show you all the posts which have recently been commented on.

    cheers!
