    Eat Pray Love Buy

    • 6 Comments
    Have you escaped the Eat Pray Love marketing onslaught ? It may be because I am in the target demographic (yeah, forty-something), although not sad as it has been suggested. Yeah, I read the book. But I felt a little dirty when Oprah recommended it. ...

    Does anyone else think that Mark Hurd could have made more money from suing HP than taking his severance package?

    • 8 Comments
    What am I missing here? 1) HP investigates a sexual harassment claim that they found to be without merit. 2) HP looks into Hurd's record and finds that there were potentially fraudulent expense reports, but they can't say whether Hurd submitted...

    I'm saying that your cheapness has turned you into a liar, fakey bag buyers. Geez, well isn't buying a knockoff kind of lying to the world about who you are and what you can afford? OK, well I am an over-sharer so I will be honest about just about...

    The Search Engine of Mostly Wrong-ness

    • 0 Comments
    This is right up my alley. It appeals to my love of random data, my professional expertise with effective search engine queries and my affinity for telling people they were wrong. Hey, I think that if you don't know, you probably shouldn't speculate...

    The JetBlue PR Response that Wasn't <golf clap>

    • 0 Comments
    I have been watching only a little TV lately. A few things on my DVR and that's about it. No morning news or anything. So, I got only a little info on this jetBlue flight attendant thing (thanks interwebz). And I find all the glamorizing of this persons...

    There are three things I want you to know about this: 1) I think that annoucing something like the introduction of a new studio via a job description is excellent PR, if it was intentional. See interwebz, sometimes leaks can be good. 2) There's...

    Movies as PR

    Just saw this article about the aging workforce of mainframe programmers . And I started to feel my age. About three years into my recruiting career, I was staffing contractors for a consulting firm. A part of my income was commission-based and while...

    In a world where the only way to identify the "real" you is by the bar code stamped on your forehead. Above your one eye. Thanks Google and global warming.
