Friday Is My Day

Okay, But What Will The Fourth Half Be?
At some big Google supergeek festival yesterday, Master of the Universe Sergey Brin said he wants Google to become the "third half of your brain."

More Eco-Scammers
Last week we wrote a post called The Eco-Marketing Scam about the hypocrisy of "green" corporations. Well, they're not alone. Our civic leaders are apparently equally capable of eco-hypocrisy.

While on a trip to Detroit last week to promote green jobs, Jesse Jackson’s car was stolen and stripped of its wheels. His car? A Cadillac Escalade SUV.

Ready? Three...Two...One...Duh
"Anita Elberse teaches marketing at the Harvard Business School, and is interested in how the Web is changing the ways companies reach customers... It turns out that things are changing less than is commonly believed. The new world of social media may be a lot like the old world, if not more so...
The correlation between online trailers that were popular and the movies or games with the biggest budgets was very strong, Elberse found. In effect, the videos that got watched the most on the Internet are those that bought their popularity through traditional offline advertising, especially on TV. "
Hmm, seems like I've heard that somewhere before...

Nitpicking As A Lifestyle
Every once in a while I get an email from someone asking me to publish my whole blog post via rss feed rather than just the first few sentences.

Is it too much freaking trouble to click your damn mouse? Is that too much of a freaking burden? Am I being too demanding?

I spend hours (okay, minutes) every day dreaming up stupid crap to keep you entertained and what do I get for it? Diddly. Nada. Bupkis. The only satisfaction is watching the numbers pile up on Statcounter. And if you don't click, I don't get numbers. So quit complaining and click your goddamn mouse.

By the way, what are nits?
