3.  Branding:  We love TrendWatching.com’s monthly Trend Briefing reports. March 2012 focuses on the theme of Flawsome: the idea that brands that behave more humanely and show flaws are more well-received by consumers.  For a longer explanation, the research behind this idea and real life examples, visit: http://trendwatching.com/briefing/
