Each month, “Christopher Lochhead on Different” episodes will explore the need to differentiate people, products, and services in a world that encourages a lot of imitation. A best-selling author, top podcaster, and former tech-industry CMO, Chris is a student of not only business and technology and marketing but also human nature, human folly, human genius, and very human joy.
Chris and I launch our monthly series with a discussion of the coming “niche-nado,” the storm of widely accessible and incredibly powerful technology that’s turning niche interests into big businesses and prompting some big companies to “un-scale” themselves. We also celebrate the idea of solving old problems in new ways. Plus, backyard chickens.
