Marketing and manuals

Creating Passionate Users: Why marketing should make the user manuals!

I thought this article was insightful.  The illustration that they use is excellent.

I can’t tell you how many things in life are marketed one way and then perform another.

People can be that way sometimes.

I can’t remember the last “compelling” user’s manual I’ve read.

Thanks to my friends The Davises, I’ve been using Flickr a lot more. I just added a new group of “Notable” photography. It’s where I will keep what I think are my best shots.

The Germany Pics

Please checkout the Germany 2006 pictures.

These are from our trip to attend Debbie and Carsten’s wedding.  It was also in celebration of my in-law’s 40th wedding anniversary!

The Internet/Anti-progress-tool

This is on target. I’ve never seen it stated so succinct.

The Internet can be both a boon to progress and a BIG time hole to toss precious hours of your life in the trash.

Article about risk.

Death by Risk Aversion

Quite a wonderful piece of insight.  I loved the description of the ideal boss maintaining the difficult balance between meeting business needs AND keeping morale high.  I also love the imagery of branches and leaves.
