    Something about pen and paper

    • 10 Comments
    I still like to carry a date book but wish it would sync with Outlook. I like the paper and the pen and the book; the smell of books and the heft (yay, vocab!). I like these things like others like the crack. My attention and amore is starting to grow...

    But I just want to pay!!!

    You can never know what happened in this case , except for the fact that it was caught on film, so you totally can know. I won't even talk about employee screening processes because honestly, an alleged "crazy person" (oh take it up with Gawker) can slip...

    Facebook, whining and having a sense of humor

    • 4 Comments
    I know that neither Fast Company nor Facebook is assuming that natives of the UK, Canada have no (or limited) sense of humor. But calling the use of mood-related status update words a "happiness" indicator is a little nuts . I understand cultural differences...

    The part where I acknowledge a minor obsession with a particular snack food

    • 0 Comments
    It's part of my childhood (where have you gone, taco flavored Doritos?). And sometimes it's lunch. Someone recently brought to my attention the prevalence of salty, cheesy snack foods in my facebook updates. Yeah, I know. Also, I really...

    Microsoft Women to Watch: Julie Larson-Green

    • 0 Comments
    I'm changing the title from Women *Worth* Watching, because really? There are many more that are worthy; some at lower levels, some because we can find something to trip over, even if it's not there (wait, what? Me?). I'm going to look past the references...

    Finally! An explanation for the Gates-Seinfeld Ads.

    Todd Bishop gets to the bottom of it with David Webster, our Brand GM. Look, we get a lot of crap for our advertising. I know this. Some deserved, some not. But I totally got the Seinfeld ads and I thought they were funny. I can understand that people...
