Marketing Warfare Revisited

In unconventional warfare, manipulated beliefs are used to displace inconvenient facts. When waging war by way of deception, false beliefs are an oft-deployed weapon. Recall Iraqi weapons of mass destruction? Iraqi ties to Al Qaeda? Iraqi mobile biological weapons laboratories? Iraqi meetings in Prague with Al Qaeda? Iraqi purchases of yellowcake uranium from Niger? All these claims were reported as true. All were later proven false or, worse, fabricated. Yet all were widely believed . Only the yellowcake uranium was conceded as bogus before the invasion of Iraq. As the U.S. crafted its response to the provocation of a mass ...
about products, customers, competitors and any aspect of the environment needed to support executives and managers in making strategic decisions for an organization. Key points of this definition: Competitive intelligence is an ethical and legal business practice, as opposed to industrial espionage which is illegal. The focus is on the external business environment. 1 There is a process involved in gathering information, converting it into intelligence and then utilizing this in business decision making. CI professionals emphasize that if the intelligence gathered is not usable (or actionable) then it is not intelligence. A more ...
Tom & Tom and the (Auto)biography of 'Knight and Day' |
I’ve always liked Patrick Goldstein: In the old days (the ‘80s) when the Los Angeles Times barely admitted the “industry” existed, he was one of the few capable of giving you an inside look. Of course Patrick (like any good reporter) had an unfair advantage -- he had embedded himself in the industry by being married to the head of PR for Paramount, at the time the hottest studio in town. (That was when Barry Diller, Michael Eisner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Don Simpson and Dawn Steel were shaking up the industry with surprise hits like “Flashdance,” “Footloose” and “An Officer and ... market research, surveys and trends

and my responses to many of the counter-arguments put forward in the comments afterwards. Please do not think that because I have not changed my opinion, it is because I have not listened closely and thought deeply about all of your ideas and objections. And please do not take personal offense when I say that, on the whole, no one replied with a counter-argument that I had not yet considered in coming to the conclusions I did (in fact, some I even directly addressed, however parenthetically, in the original post itself, and I will attempt to point out where I did so whenever I can). The Shape of My Argument [ 1 ] One thing that ... market research, surveys and trends


A Bad Deal Revisited — Obama and FDR
online edition on January 13, Daniel Gross complains: "Even before President-elect Obama takes office, critics are circling his yet-to-be-released stimulus plan." The most "emphatic objections come from conservatives, who question the utility of deploying old-fashioned fiscal stimulus ... [to] boost demand and right the economy." Gross primarily singles out those with "ideological" objections. "Amity Shlaes, George Will, and assorted libertarians cling bitterly to the notion that the New Deal didn't work, that FDR's policies of regulatory reform and sharply increased government spending were an abject failure, that the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The American Way of Death Revisited, Vintage, Jessica Mitford ...
"Mitford's funny and unforgiving book is the best memento mori we are likely to get.  It should be updated and reissued each decade for our spiritual health."— The New York Review of Books Only the scathing wit and searching intelligence of Jessica Mitford could turn an exposé of the American funeral industry into a book that is at once deadly serious and side-splittingly funny. When first published in 1963 this landmark of investigative journalism became a runaway bestseller and resulted in legislation to protect grieving families from the unscrupulous sales practices of those in "the dismal trade." ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

~ Flashblock for Chrome ~ - Google Chrome Help
This is the single most important plug-in for any browser. I cannot browse web pages with Flash ads spinning around a page. It gives me headaches. I like the Chrome interface but will stay with FireFox until this plug-in is developed. I still find it annoying that flash ads are "forced" on the user. I do understand the importance of a constant barrage of marketing content; yes, I have money in my pocket, but annoying me with a flash ad is not going to persuade me to buy a product. I honestly find the forced-animation approach annoying. We should be able to stop Flash animations with the "Esc" key, just like animated ...
