Marketing Needs A Pride Parade

Fri, 25 Apr 2008 16:28:26 PDT
Sometimes marketers get a bad rap. We’re often seen as a necessary evil within a corporation, and mistrusted among consumers. With both audiences, we are often dismissed, disregarded and disrespected. In reality, marketers are simply misunderstood. Ours is a job...

LA Weekly Sans Comics?

Fri, 25 Apr 2008 16:28:57 PDT
So I haven’t picked up a Weekly in months, not so much because it sucks or anything but because the newsweekly recyclers hit the stacks near my house before I can even grab one. (It’s a huge racket in the paper biz–one delivery guy drops off his papers, then grabs everyone else’s & recycles them for cash, ’cause, well, he’s broke.) But a little bird just notified me this is the fourth straight Weekly without Tom Tomorrow, Kaz, Lynda Barry, Tony Millionaire or Carol Lay. Wot? Srsly? Is this

Will The Global Warming Nuts Please Just Go Away Now.

Fri, 25 Apr 2008 16:30:45 PDT
Robert108 has a post up about the scientific progress of measuring the temperatures of the oceans. In fact, 80 percent to 90 percent of global warming involves heating up ocean waters. They hold much more heat than the atmosphere can. So Willis has been studying the ocean with a fleet of robotic instruments called the Argo system. The buoys can dive 3,000 feet down and measure ocean temperature. Since the system was fully deployed in 2003, it has recorded no warming of the global oceans. “Th

Homophily, serendipity, xenophilia

Fri, 25 Apr 2008 16:33:51 PDT
There’s been a small but fascinating blog conversation going on surrounding the term “homophily”. Journalism and media critic Amy Gahran encountered the term in an interview I and Solana Larsen gave with Chris Lydon of Radio Open Source and explored the concept in an extended riff and a set of bookmarks. Tom, an educator living and working in Ankara, weighed in with a moving story about learning from a Guatemalan colleague. Michele Martin, an education blogger, worries that the internet as a wh

One hundred Inuit teens. Ten hip-hop dancers. Five days. Sheesh, we just have to start getting more sleep. But wait, this isn't a really weird dream after another cherished soiree of beer and extra saucy wings.

Oil up! Freak out! Dow up? Shut up!

Fri, 18 Apr 2008 13:28:14 PDT
The state-run media in Canada (and the citizen-owned media who do their best to compete with them) all lament, daily (with intra-day lament updates, all day long), the price of a barrel of oil, and the resulting price of gas. (Of course they don’t have the foggiest clue what they’re talking about, but they pretend they do.) Even as I was writing this, the state-owned CBC did a story about the latest rise in gas prices. Apparently it’s getting higher. You can tell because they const

CBC: It’s a “bungle”! No it’s a “blunder”! Hang on: it’s a “gaffe”!

Fri, 18 Apr 2008 13:28:14 PDT
It ain’t good, that’s for sure! Just yesterday I had to update my Monday blog entry because the fair and balanced state-owned CBC Newsworld kept changing its mind about the Conservative government’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Maxime Bernier, and how to officially describe his, um, verbal malfunction. On Monday I showed you how Canada’s cable news networks—the state-owned one and the citizen-owned one against which they compete—instructed us to think of the Conservative Minister of For

Rotten Timing of Bands and Heart Attacks

Diary time again. Wednesday afternoon, I ended up doing something I had never done before, and the only reason was because the Pope was visiting America. Normally, I would be indifferent to such a thing, and it was exactly my complete indifference that drove me to this point. You see, when I eat lunch in my house, I eat in my living room, usually around 12.30 or 1.00, while I watch television, often the news. It's usually the only television I watch in the course of a day, unless it's Thursday,
