Best of the week: The Olympics show how media’s changed

Simone Biles went up -- all the way up -- in a gold medal GIF, created by media agency Cycle. This week we went deep on how the clip was created and why it did so well. It was a piece of ingenious Olympics-related content that succeeded where others -- notably Vogue Brazil -- failed this week. In advance of the Paralympics in Rio, the publisher promoted the games with a photo of two of the country's biggest soap opera stars, Photoshopped to appear as amputees.

The long road ahead for smart fabrics

Figuring out how to scale advanced textiles that use electrical elements or battery-powered technology is an ongoing challenge that transcends just the fashion industry. Especially when most consumers have a fairly basic relationship with fabric: They get dressed in the morning in preparation for the elements, perhaps selecting a moisture-wicking shirt before a run or a thermal jacket to stave off the cold. But for smart fabrics designers, these everyday textiles have the potential to do much, much more.

A day in the life of The Economist’s head of social media

As the Economist's community editor, Denise Law works to grow its paid readership and brand awareness using social platforms. But when she began a year ago, one of the biggest challenges was getting reporters to understand the importance of social media for content distribution and to show them that she was more than just a "tweet-churning factory." Now, Law is focusing on a big push in the U.S for the presidential elections.

Lastminute.com bets on video to get advertisers spending

When Swiss travel company Bravofly Rumbo Group acquired Lastminute.com in 2014, the bookings site was worth £501 million less than its last sale in 2005. Now, the group is banking on video content to find a new revenue stream and cut marketing costs. Headed by ex-eBay exec Alessandra Di Lorenzo, Lastminute.com's team of freelance content producers will make branded videos that will then appear around its network. The sell: Lastminute.com group knows its young, cash-rich travelers really well.
