Thinking outside the box, Yahoo (AU and NZ) put creative teams inside a box! Between November 3-17, 2005, team members from different advertising agencies will spend 4 to 8-hour shifts in a large glass box house. These advertising execs are "on the spot" to produce campaigns based on the requests (briefs) submitted through the website--within five minute!
The Yahoo! Think Tank is located at Customs House, Circular Quay, Sidney, Australia. Yahoo! Think Tank provides users with access to a collection of on-line resources, including, various communications tools, personalised content and branded programming.
This is really a good idea and I have been visiting daily. I think the Think Tank blog post for today (11/8/05) really shows how there really is a silver lining in every cloud!
