Consumer Control Where the media landscape was once dominated by TV, now many of those ad dollars have been redistributed to other forms of media. 60% More than of consumers are in time-shifted environments, and an 92% estimated of TV ads are being skipped over. (* Maria Mandel, Executive Director of digital innovation for Ogilvy Interactive *)
TV Viewing To Fall 30% in 5 Years • It suggests that over the next 5 years linear television viewing may fall by 20-30%, to be replaced largely by the increased use of on-demand services. • A similar pattern is anticipated for audio programming. (* Ofcom *)

New Media Gets More Marketing Money 73% • Some of marketers now allocate up to 20% of their budget for new & emerging media (* American Advertising Federation study, BrandWeek *)
Where is the Online $ $$ going? Current Planned
Where is the Social Media $$$ going? Friends' brand mentions hold a lot more weight than standard ads, which is what attracts marketers to social networks.
SOCIAL NETWORK REVENUES will more than double this year to as much as $1 billion from $400 million in 2006, quot;so far, little advertising can be found on them.” (* Source: IDC *)
Brands & Social Networks 11.5% • The top 20 social networks grew by from January 2007 to February 2007. 6.5% • They account for of all Internet visits. Myspace, continues to be the big daddy. They have 8x the market share of their closes competitor (*Source: Hitwise *)

The 4 ‘F’s of Citizen Marketing •Filters •Fanatics •Facilitators •Firecrackers (* Source: Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba *)
Filters • The Filters are human wire services. They collect brand stories and then package this information into a stream of observations. • Filters maintain a steady objectivity like traditional news, but some Filters cross over into analysis. • Their work could be called amateur brand journalism. (* Source: Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba *)
Fanatics • The Fanatics are true believers and evangelists. They love to analyze the progress of a brand • The Fanatics praise great work -- but they will also criticize mistakes in full view of the world • Fanatics want to contribute and add value, they want to contribute and often do so, even if the company isn't listening (* Source: Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba *)
Facilitators • Facilitators are community creators. Facilitators are like the mayors of online towns, and some online communities exceed the populations of small cities • Facilitators create online communities mostly for fans to connect with other fans and offer support • The size or demographics of some Facilitator-created communities becomes attractive enough to interest advertisers (* Source: Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba *)
Firecrackers • Firecrackers are the one-hit wonders & attract considerable attention because they have created a song, animation, video, or novelty that generates a lot of interest • They may disappear as quickly as they arrived, the Firecrackers can have a measurable impact on a slice of culture or business (* Source: Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba *)
Citizen Content • The people are the message because their role as publishers or broadcasters hoists them above the boundaries that one-way media communicators have erected around themselves • They are not the balcony standers of one-way media, concealed behind walls of organizational privacy. • Participation is their medium and their platform. (* Source: Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba *)
•the future of advertising is about engaging your customers as co- creators, rather than expecting them to passively consume. Pete Cashmore, Mashable Blog

“The Fort Knox Five have had a huge impact on the international funk and breaks scene over the past couple of years. With the release of five critically acclaimed singles on their own independent label, Fort Knox Recordings, the FK5 have been thrust into the spotlight and caught the attention of music lovers around the world.”.
FORT KNOX FIVE SHOUT OUTS • “caught jon.h at halo this weekend. shit was fucking incredible. “ – k to tha, USA • “Fantatstic set you guys played last Saturday night @ Supperclub San Francisco” – Q to the DF, SF, USA • “your funk sounds everyday at Ibiza sonica radio - Igor Marijuán, Ibiza, Spain • “Big up, Belgium salutes ya, aye aye SIR” - Societe Anonyme.

“This album is seamlessly mixed, its relentless pace determined not to let your feet rest for one second. The Washington D.C. foursome of Fort Knox Five has rounded up tunes from, among others, Ursula 1000,Nickodemus, Krafty Kuts and Dynamo Productions. Apart from glueing all the tracks together rather incredibly, invisibly well, FK5 has also quot;reminted“ each one. Latin beats, brassy horns, phat basslines and punchy breaks supersize some already mean tunes. And don't forget double dollops of wah guitars for that extra funk flavour. Slip this into the sound system at your next party, then race to the dancefloor, 'cos it's gonna fill up very quickly. “
