Are you Older and Wiser.  Do you fear or embrace change. Baby Boomer / Change / Popped Culture / Science / Technology

Or Too Old And Too Wise to Change? (The final post in my Baby Boomer/Change set.   And I still believe the terms are NOT mutually exclusive.) A former boss of mine sent me the article below.  We worked together in the eighties; he was in his mid-thirties then and I was in my mid-twenties.  He seemed a lot wiser than I was but that...

Facebook Needs a Handle Change / Popped Culture / Technology / Uncategorized

If I’m Mark Zuckerberg – I’m Pissed They used to call what we do advertising. Then people started to double-down on the fancy terms to make it sound like more than it is. We’re really just professional communicators. We use words and pictures to try and change the way people think and behave. But it’s complicated. Depending on the client you ask, we’re either good at...

HP is Using AI to Keep My Ink Filled and It’s Creepy   The email was innocent enough; in fact it was so innocuous that I almost deleted it without reading.

Was Sneakers A Film Sony Should Have Watched? In 1992 Universal Studios made a picture called Sneakers.  It was considered a pretty fantastic and far-out story about a maniacal corporate leader that had come by a little black box capable of crashing all of the critical computer networks in the US.  In the film, Robert Redford leads an aging and dispirited group of 60’s radicals...

Notes from the Internet Apocalypse Entertainment / Popped Culture / Technology

Notes is not for your regular Book Club. Yes, I am “pimping” a book called Notes from the Internet Apocalypse or for this piece just “Notes”. I don’t usually promote anything (well, I did become a bit obsessed with “Boyhood” but it was a great film) because peoples’ tastes are so damn different and because mine rarely sync up with anyone else. I’m not sure...
