Totally. I’ve noticed the ugly black rubber case that Apple sells helps a lot, though.
Anyone wanna go to this?

I am one of those people. But let me explain something to you. The telephone was an aberation in human development. It was a 70 year or so period where for some reason humans decided it was socially acceptable to ring a loud bell in someone else’s life and they were expected to come running, like dogs. This was the equivalent of thinking it was okay to walk into someone’s living room and start shouting. it was never okay. It’s less okay now. Telephone calls are rude. They are interruptive. Technology has solved this brief aberration in human behavior. We have a thing now called THE TEXT MESSAGE. It is magical, non-intrusive, optional, and, just like human speech originally was meant to be, is turn based and two way. You talk. I talk next. Then you talk. And we do it when it’s convenient for both of us.

Math.(via mikehudack) Ah but Math is the essense of negotiation. All negotiation theory, game theory and the like has math at its root. Math is the foundation for negotiation. And at the negotiation table math is at its most fungible. In a negotiation math becomes a weapon to be deployed, not an insurmountable fact. 2+2 will always equal 4 on paper. But a great negotiator can fix the game so 2+1 equals 4 in his/her favor. (via evangotlib)

“We’ve got to get the site to communicate Roush Fenway as an entertainment and marketing entity, not just a race team,” said Benjamin Palmer, CEO and co-founder of The Barbarian Group. “A lot of people might not realize that Roush Fenway puts together these very integrated, customized marketing programs for their clients and we’ve got to find ways to tell that story.”
Telling that story will begin with a redesigned website later this year that will put the NASCAR team’s business side front and center. The team is spending close to $500,000 in startup costs to begin the relationship with Barbarian and convert a space in the race shop into a video studio, and five executives have been reassigned to focus on the relaunch, Roush Fenway President Geoff Smith said. The budgets dedicated to online efforts for most NASCAR teams are in the middle to high five figures.” —
Love to see that we’re makin’ good progress with Roush Fenway, after having met them over a year ago at Webby Connect! Exciting!
