  • Bold moves from risk-taking brands like Red Bull with the #Stratos stunt (and world record)
  • More on ‘maker’ and DIY culture fueling the next industrial revolution
  • Related – how new e-commerce models are disrupting the traditional retail model through vertical integration, skipping the retailer entirely
  • Content, content, content – can’t talk about marketing today without considering content
