  • The Corporate Bulls*** Generator.  Sadly, I suspect that quotes were not computer generated but actually copied down in meetings by real people.  ;-)
  • Here’s my  marketing idea of the week:  For every 50th? 100th? 1000th? download of your product’s trial version, give that person a free license.  It would only cost you the opportunity cost of a free license, and would certainly garner some interest in your trial.  I don’t know – maybe it’s crazy – an idea worth what you paid for it.  ;-) I guess you’d have to defend against bots some how, but an interesting idea in theory.
  • By the way, my last post probably should have been titled “Getting the Internet into Another Room” or “Getting a Switch….”.  I didn’t really need to get a new router in there.  And it continues to work marvelously.  I heartily recommend the solution.
  • Hey, I thought I did a pretty good job here on my personal website, but this guy….. wow, very cool. And the Minesweeper game actually works. 
  • Nick’s Advice for the Week: Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.  Actually, my wife said this one – I have to give credit where credit is due.
  • Geeky Post of the Week: I thought this was a very interesting post:  How Not To Sort By Average Rating.  I particularly enjoyed the “Sites that make this mistake” part.  ;-)
  • Controversial Item of the Weekprivate is the new goto.

A Pithy Quote for You

"If we seek merely swollen, slothful ease and ignoble peace, if we shrink from the hard contests where men must win at the hazard of their lives and risk all that they hold dear, then bolder and stronger peoples will pass us by, and win for themselves the domination of the world."    –  Theodore Roosevelt
