on the tragic news, for some, that the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, the organizations that jointly manage Broadway’s annual Tony Awards, have decided to remove the first-night theater press from the ranks of Tony voters. Some hand-wringers charge that the demotion aids the demise of theater reviewing in major newspapers and magazines. They feel that critics, by asserting high standards, were valuable additions to the Tony decision-making process. Feingold’s eminently sane reaction is flat out happiness that, no longer obligated to be a conscientious Tony voter, he doesn’t have to sit though a lot of what ...
and a number of new underlying operating system features, yet still be compatible with the vast majority of existing Mac software. Development began in 1994 and was underway in earnest by 1995, when the system started to be referred to as System 8 or Mac OS 8 . During development the system started collecting new features at an alarming rate and the completion date continued to slip into the future. In 1996, Apple's newest CEO , Gil Amelio , hired Ellen Hancock away from National Semiconductor and put her in charge of engineering in an effort to try to get development back on track. Instead, she decided it was best to ...
Doc Searls Weblog · On the Continuing End of Business as Usual
Cluetrain influenced an entire generation of net-heads (as generations are reckoned in what we called “Internet time” back in the paleolithic era), for better and for worse. Better: entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, and accidental entrepreneurs who discovered that talking with people in the normal, recognizable, human voice was both possible and superior to the old third-person/passive-voice corporatespeak. Worse: the floodtide of marketing jerks who mouthed “Markets are conversations” even as they infiltrated blogs and other social spaces with badly disguised corporate communications beamed in from ... market research, surveys and trends

signals the end of business as usual for the establishment. This publication happens to target the military establishment, but its reverberations will be felt in all parts of society, and eventually, in all countries and regions. Back in the sixties, all the singing and dancing and growing of long hair didn’t really impact the establishment very much. In the big picture, not much has happened since. The released Afghan war diary database contains a description of essentially every single event that happened in Afghanistan for some years. The good, the bad and the ugly. But more importantly, it’s the raw data, and ... market research, surveys and trends


cluetrain manifesto - chapter one
You will never hear those words spoken in a television ad. Yet this central fact of human existence colors our world and how we perceive ourselves within it. "Life is too short," we say, and it is. Too short for office politics, for busywork and pointless paper chases, for jumping through hoops and covering our asses, for trying to please, to not offend, for constantly struggling to achieve some ever-receding definition of success. Too short as well for worrying whether we bought the right suit, the right breakfast cereal, the right laptop computer, the right brand of underarm deodorant. Life is too short because we ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Talent management: trends that will shape the future. | Labor ...
Talent management practices have developed and adapted throughout the years in response to many changes in the workplace, from the industrial revolution and the rise of labor unions, to affirmative action, globalization, and outsourcing, to name just a few. The 1990s ended with a call-to-arms to fight "the war for talent." While the war for talent clearly has cooled in the early stages of the 21st century, dampened by economic doldrums and concerns with global security, the real battle to attract, develop, motivate, and retain talent is going to heat up considerably. A looming demographic time bomb will make ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

WASHINGTON – In a letter to heads of the government agencies charged with implementing Wall Street reform, Senators Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.) today urged strong implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act, particularly the Merkley-Levin provisions limiting conflicts of interest and high-risk proprietary trading. “The law is clear: the risky and abusive financial practices that drove our country into an economic ditch must end,” the senators wrote.  “Now, as you set out to implement this legislation, the American people are counting on you to fully and faithfully follow that ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

I've always had pretty good luck staying in close contact with past customers. They are usually the ones who have friends and relatives that are thinking of buying or selling. In my opinion, there isn't much we can do to stimulate the market. It is usually job security and life changing events that cause people to buy or sell a home regardless of interest rates. posted 3 months ago I believe we need to promote the low interest rates and keep in touch with our clients that we just worked with to help the family and friends pursue their dream home as well. posted 3 months ago Staying in contact with customers and clients ...
