And the music goes on!

December 19th, 2012, Perfect Fools

2012 has been a very exciting year and we at Perfect Fools would like to thank you all – our clients, vendors and friends – and wish you all the best for the holiday season!

To round up the year we have some great news from the Metropole Orchestra in the Netherlands. As you might remember if you’ve been following this page, the Dutch government had decided to cut their fundings, which would have been a deathblow for the struggling orchestra. So the orchestra decided to reach out through social media, and invited Twitter users around the world to compose a day-long live-streamed concert performance using tweets, together with Havas Worldwide Amsterdam and Perfect Fools. (You can read more about it here.)

And it worked! The Tweetphony campaign made the national news, stirred debate, highlighted the issue and made a difference. The government has now done a U-turn and will fund the Metropole Orchestra through 2017. Now that’s the power of music and social media combined! :)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Told You So! A Christmas gift from The Fools

December 23rd, 2011, Perfect Fools

The holidays are a lovely time of peace and joy. But let’s face it: by bringing extended families into close proximity for longer periods they can also lead to the occasional… erhmm… difference of opinion.

This Christmas, instead of just sending a simple card or other thank you to those we hold dear, we at Perfect Fools wanted to give a gift with lasting human value. We thought: what better than something to promote global harmony for decades to come?

So, we give you the very first beta release of http://told-you.org.

TOLD-YOU.org is a world peace initiative of Perfect Fools. By establishing an independent, unbiased and incorruptible repository that records exactly who told what to whom, we think we may just have solved one of the most nagging, age-old problems of human existence.

If nothing else, hopefully it might someday help you to win an additional argument or two!

Now here’s to a VERY harmonious holiday for you and your loved ones, and a terrific 2012, from Perfect Fools!

All the best,
The Fools
