November 29, 2010 – Off goes Off The Books.
I’ve always prided myself on being a bit of a “friend of the everyman.” I have a tipping policy – I tip in direct proportion to how much I don’t want to do a job. In other words, cabbies and … Continue reading
November 28, 2010 – No logo.
I’ve been meaning to read this book for a long time. I admire Naomi Klein, and her intellectual take on most subjects. That having been said, however, I think I might be a little “too close” to this book’s theme … Continue reading
November 27, 2010 – A good man, indeed.
I really enjoyed the Peanuts cartoons as a kid. There was something that connected with me in a way that other Sunday Morning comics didn’t. In hindsight, it was the adult psychology and timeless philosophies that Charles Schultz connected with. … Continue reading

Well – it’s finally happened. I’ve succumbed to iPhone fever. Got my new iPhone – and that means the Blackberry is headed to retirement. Here’s to technology that lasts. As I look at the Blackberry, it’s my reminder to take … Continue reading

November 23, 2010 – Random marketing books.
Starting to clean out the work library as well now. The books above are books I’ve kept in my work office forever. But I never reference them. Time to RID. As I’ve been preparing to RID my workplace of the … Continue reading
November 22, 2010 – Notes on giving. And on the word “meta.”
My favorite word is “meta.” My other blog is kind of a “meta blog.” That is, a blog about other blogs. So…with that explanation, today’s RID is a meta-RID. A RID about ridding. Someone gave me this book to encourage … Continue reading
