And so my hope moving forward is simply that Anthropologie stops trying to be what everyone else is trying to be. Don't compete against the J.Crews or the Madewells, the Shopbops or the Targets, the Tuckers or the Free Peoples. Don't worry about answering the trends. Don't be concerned...

Thanks MindTouch! Over the last several days I've been mulling over exactly what it means to be innovative. It's interesting to compare MindTouch's list of innovators to their list of the most influential technical communicators, published last year. In their influencers list, they...

Do you think you're cool? If so, why? If not, why not? Do you care? If not, have you EVER cared? Do you know people that you consider to be eternally cool? What is it about them that makes them so? Did you ever believe that cool clothes would make you cool, too? Image is of Audrey Hepburn,...

What's broad spectrum in that?? So, US consumers had no way to know how much UVA radiation protection (if any at all) was offered in a product. You may have seen designations such as PA++ on products, but what does this mean and why isn't it on everything? It is a European designation for...

You see and hear this all the time, pH level or pH balance but what does it mean? pH actually stands for power (p) of hydrogen (H) molecule. Hold on, I know it's already sounding to techie but it's actually due to the elements role as a determining factor of acid or alkaline. The pH scale...

. Designers trying to outdo their last collection and outdo each other at the same time have caused some to raise the bar (a la Alexander McQueen) and fail miserably (not calling no names). But the question must be posed, when everything has already been done, how do you establish the next...
