Prison Poker solves Cold Cases?

I want to know who it was who was sitting around and asking himself (herself) the question, “How can I leverage prison inmates’ obsession with poker to solve major crimes?”  We may not know who asked the question, but the question has been answered: By issuing playing cards that highlight unsolved murders.  The approach has … Continue reading


DO NOT CALL me then, DO NOT CALL me now, DO NOT CALL me

Yes, as a person that has spent the past 22 years in one form or another of sales, I have done cold calling. I have even called people at home (though it made me feel dirty). And, of course, I have also received my share of such calls. The federal DO NOT CALL list was … Continue reading

I love the idea of! It is a perfect example of a “disruptor”, changing–practically overnight–the ways in which we think of CRM (customer relationship management), placing it on the web and offering a wonderfully scalable solution to growing businesses. And, of course, I love anything and anyone who challenges Microsoft.

Outside the box

The world is changing at hyper-speed and yesterdays answers don’t make for reliable solutions tomorrow. We must continue to think in new ways.

Not all of them

Just most.  Okay, okay, rules can be good (I can think of some commandments that I don’t want to mess with).  And they have managed to keep my little boy from burning himself on the stove (not the fireplace… but that’s a different story for a different time).  But many of the rules need to … Continue reading
