My guess is that Chuck Jones would have either tried to drop a boulder on my head or blow me up with some Acme dynamite.

I also ran a speaker's bureau of sorts in college, and we brought in (I'm not making this up) Mel Blanc.


Except Mel called in sick and we ended up with Joe Piscipo, who was a total jerk.

Thanks for the kind words and a solid review.

Econ 101 teaches us that people will do what's rational to maximize utility. Unfortunately, economists use money as the least-worst proxy for utility which ignores the psychographic benefits that people get from doing stuff (of course, those blasted Utils are so hard to measure!)
One of the most powerful benefits that people seek is the sense of belonging; and that sense is such potent driver of choices, including the choice of where to work. I suspect that the whole 2.0 ethos of societal atomization, individual empowerment, content creation at the network edge, decline of traditional community in favor of community-of-interest, etc will only make the tribe-impulse that much more potent (and attainable) going forward. People are joiners in search of a shaman-chieftain; we're just hard-wired that way. The beauty is that today it's easier than ever to join (start?) a tribe and proclaim to the world why your tribe is da bomb!

According to Seth, tribes are started by heretics of sorts. They are not blinded by the status quo. They are not afraid of failure. They are true believers in what they are doing. And they barrel forward without concern for the potential consequences of the decisions they are making. They lead by example. And they are unendingly generous to their communities -- giving of their time, their ideas, their selves. In short, these heretics are great entrepreneurs!

@-@we'd all like to believe that people buy what we're selling simply because it's a great product. Wine makers have a lot invested in believing that their wines are terrific. And some fermented grape juice is better than others.\**/

Great summary of what it is really like - it's not perfect, but with a little creativity and help from the employer - it is a great step to providing the best nutrition and protection to our children.

I ordered the ring in a size 6 to wear on my middle finger. I rec'd it and it fits just like my size 5 rings - so i wear it on my 4th finger instead. Fits perfectly there. At first I was disappointed, but then saw how great it fit on my other finger and was happy.
