“The key to great marketing … is ideas –not technology. While we eagerly gather data from every encounter with the customer, and while the Internet and information technologies give us unprecedented opportunities to gather data, such systems are not all knowing, all seeing, or all powerful. Certainly, they are not as powerful as a good idea.” — Dorothy Durkin, 2001
