Observations from the Other Side of the World

I just came back from two weeks in Argentina and Uruguay. I’ll get to the   great wine, plentiful and cheap beef, friendly people and spectacular soccer later. Instead I have some marketing and technology observations.

  • Every billboard, poster, and often graffiti include Twitter and Facebook prompts.
  • I saw a few Android users (Samsung) no iPhone users, but plenty of people of all ages carrying Blackberry devices.
  • The city parks in Uruguay offer free public WiFi (or whiffy as the locals referred to it)
  • In Mendoza and Buenos Aries there are parks and plazas on ever blog. You can’t walk three blocks without a fountain, statue or grassy tree laden lawn. Each one of those parks has a Facebook page.
