Larry Page’s “city of the future” has found its first home in Toronto. Sidewalk Labs LLC, the urban innovation unit of Page’s Alphabet Inc., and Waterfront Toronto plan to foster the development of a high-tech community from scratch along Lake Ontario in Canada’s biggest city. The area aims to become an innovation hub for technologies that improve city life, from green energy systems to self-driving transit and new construction techniques that can lower housing costs, the companies said. “This is the culmination of about 10 years of thinking about how technology can improve people’s lives,” Alphabet Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said at a news conference in Toronto on Tuesday.

- Seeing the light: Musical TV creative and light bulbs
Monday Aug 14, 2017
Longtime digital video marketers moving to linear TV video have an unusual creative task — especially for companies with a more business-to-business emphasis.
1000blubs.com targets electricians, maintenance professionals, building owners and architects that buy in bulk.
A highly musical number was the way to go forthe company. At MediaPost TV & Video Insider Summit, Jeremy Foster, vp of marketing and product development of the company, said inspiration for the creative came from marketers such asDollar Shave Club and Free Credit Report.
“When we watch TV, it needs to be distracting,” says Foster. “We need to be entertaining.” Opening video for the spotfeatures a guitar-playing big-box store employee.
Foster says the company is using Wide Orbit, the programmatic/addressable company, with the aim in “looking at low CPM areas thathave a lot of content, such as early news TV programming.” The super competitive nature of local TV station early news content was a good fit.
Overall, Foster says, “we don’tdo much with third party data.” He says the company tends to look at Amazon and Wal-Mart orders.
