Coolhunting in New Scientist and in Vienna

The New Scientist just published a really nice article about trend prediction through Coolhunting with Condor. It took the journalists a few iterations, but in the end they explained the basic ideas in better words than I could myself (unfortunately the full article requires subscription).

I also spoke about Coolhunting recently at an event in Vienna, which triggered a thought-provoking blog post about trend prediction through swarm intelligence by Oliver Nitz and Werner Buhre (in German). The same Web site also has a podcast where Oliver and Werner asked me some provocative questions (also in German)
