So, this is pretty awesome.

How does Wells Fargo secure your communications channel?

With animated gifs.

Ladies and gentlemen, Wells Fargo’s security. And, not to put to fine a point on it, their opinion of how trivially gulled their clients are.

Are you a client of Wells Fargo?

I’m just asking.

Narrative Paralysis

Filed under: a/b,interfaces,life — mhoye @ 9:33 am

Yesterday on the subway I watched a man write “KEY INSIGHTS” at the top of a page in his Moleskine, and then just stare at the page unmoving for the next six stops. He hadn’t budged when I stepped off to switch trains; I have to admit that as the minutes ticked by, I struggled not to start laughing right there. “ZOMG Thought Leadership Liek Woah”, I was thinking.

This morning I realized I’d been staring at an email window with a “To:” line, a title, and a cursor blinking away in an otherwise empty editor for at least five minutes, maybe more.

Sorry, key-insights-on-the-subway-guy. The inside of my head could have been a little more sympathetic, it turns out.
