    Just saw on the news that Lisa Brummel (our VP of HR and my boss's boss's boss) is one of the new owners of the Seattle Storm. Cool! News here , here , here, here, here.

    and launches viral campaign that jokes about cancer. Wow. I'm not sure what excuse is acceptable (not meant to be "publicly available?" Is it acceptable in private?) but perhaps just an admission of incredibly poor judgment and lack of taste? That would...

    I need to sit down and write an article today and unfortunately. there's a bunch of random junk floating around in my brain that I need to get rid of or I'll never be able to concentrate. The only things more distasteful than constant updates on Britney...

    Bill's Last Day

    Spoof video shown at CES on Bill's last day . I'm still kind of amazed that we can get some of these people to do this stuff. (edit: looking for a better version of this)

    Celebrity Apprentice Task 1: Selling Hotdogs

    • 15 Comments
    OK, here we go, kids. Apprentice recap time! First off, after yesterdays realization of what “celebrity” means, I want to say a few words about karma. And I am directing this at you Mr. Trump: you get the celebrity participants that you deserve. Perhaps...

    You Know You Have Been in HR Too Long When...

    • 12 Comments
    HR intrudes on your life. I was trying to decide if this was going to be one post with lots of comments or a tag/category. Definitely a tag/category. Because I hope that some of my colleagues participate. And the rest of you can laugh at us. Anyhoo, kicking...

    This is what happens after the holidays

    • 6 Comments
    I start to care about stuff that would ordinarily bug me. For example: Iowa caucuses. I was trying to read the words on the screen at the Pro Club last night after my shuffle de-juiced. It's actually quite interesting how the whole thing works. The bargaining...

    Sick of hearing about Scoble

    • 24 Comments
    I'm sorry. I'm sure this is offensive to someone, but I am really sick of hearing about Robert Scoble . The whole tech blogging with insanely heavy doses of ego doesn't appeal to me. I've met him a couple times and he seemed nice enough but that doesn...

    Transgendered in life and at Microsoft

    I read the blog of Megan Wallent over the holidays. Megan is an exec at Microsoft and used to be called Michael. She discussed in frank detail her decision to present as a female and what that means for her at work. You might want to do what I did......

    Missed marketing opportunity

    Whole Foods employees are fired if they touch a customer. Oh settle, down. I was talking about hugs. Hugs, people. What? You don't want a little cuddle in the dairy isle? It's cold there.

    Getting a "facebook strategy"

    • 3 Comments
    And no, it's not about getting dates. I am going to take some of Paul's recommendations . I'll have a little bit of a hard time with #2 trading off between facebook and blogging (cheater!). Just did #4. Really want to focus on #3. And also, throwing more...

    You ready for some Celebrity Apprentice?

    • 21 Comments
    I'm not sure that you are. I just looked at the line-up and I'm predicting a level of sassy and snarky that you may not be ready for. I just realized that the show debuts tonight because I saw a promo for it during the Today Show (which is so bad in it...

    ...but I've gotten 2 full nights of sleep. In a row! Two...full...nights.I'm not sure if it's the fact that I am back on the j-o-b that makes the difference but it's delicious. It's my equivalent of crack. I wake up in the morning and I still feel wonderfully...

    I love everything about this, especially Anderson's nervous laugh. Kathy Griffin + Anderson Cooper + a little Earth, Wind and Fire. Someone pinch me.

    Writing effective job postings

    Partly free advertising for my pals at TheLadders and partly because they give some good advice about writing job postings (not to be confused with job descriptions...there's a subtle difference). Pasted with their permission, of course. If you...

    I will like to think of it as a to-do list for 2008... ...still enjoying my current role but have not developed a long term career plan. Now's the time. Gotta get it done. ...realized that my new-ish affinity for imperfectness has to do with the...

    I'm ready for facebook to grow up a little

    • 10 Comments
    For all my facebook love, I'm ready for it to stop being such a skanky kid. I know that it's just people writing these facebook apps, but when I get an invitation to an application involving "meet(ing) new people", I don't really want to get cheesy flirt...
