Less cost more fun!” - timechaser, London, UK • “Libraries are a treasure trove for free entertainment! Books, CDs, DVDs galore!” - jIL, WA “Ditch sodas and bottled water for regular tap water - improve your health, your pocket and the environment” - Michael Donohoe, Brooklyn, NY “Make your morning coffee at home and take it to work in a nice thermos, instead of buying one on your commute.” - Aimee, New York, NY “Instead of going shopping, I am hosting seasonal clothing swaps. I provide snacks, guests provide beverages. We all bring clothes.” - Kelly, Long Island City “I cancelled cable and installed Boxee. Now I watch TV for free with programs like Hulu. Savings: $84 per month.” -@jrharrell, via Twitter “Eating out at restaurants lot less...instead more BBQ's and pot-lucks with friends...actually way more social now because of it... ” - Paul, Brooklyn Spark Communications & MRCC January 12, 2010 7 7 Source: New York Times Recession Survey asks “How are you getting by in the economic downturn?” (MediaVest, April 27, 2009)

Virtual Enhancements to Physical Experiences Handheld reality (mobile) “When people aren't talking, texting, e-mailing, or socializing on their phone, they're generally engaged in a goal-oriented activity. They're searching for something specific, confirming a price on a new appliance, looking for the nearest restaurant, getting directions to the store, checking show times, or a myriad of other ancillary activities undertaken to support a larger goal. Immediacy, relevancy, and actionability are key.” - JasonSteinberg,Spark Communications Spark Communications & MRCC January 12, 2010 26 26 Source: Closing the Sales Loop with Mobile, by Jason Steinberg, Spark Commjnications (Clickz, Ocbober 2009)
