Marketing today is much more like sailing than driving. Your boat is the brand. If you point your boat in the right direction, follow the winds/currents, and steer, you will get the boat to go where you want it.

A prominent mention in The Wall Street Journal a couple of weeks ago garnered me a whopping 40 visitors.
More content will be created today than existed in entirety before 2003.
Let's face it, we're skunk drunk and it's because of money. It's almost like we all need to enter Betty Ford Clinic 2.0 together. This time, it's not stock market money but private equity, M&A, VCs and to some degree the reckless abandonment of logic by some advertisers who are perpetuating what is
So as I thought about it, the most important "tool" you can have today in business is insatiable curiosity. The minute you lose it, you're dead.
The bigger story here is that the fabric of the Net has changed; itâ€™s a place for people to connect up around shared interests and then collaborate towards some sort of action.
There's not much there on yogurt, but it's all about a higher calling, which is women and children's health.
I don't buy a lot of these projections. Marketers can be fickle. If their competitors experiment and succeed with programs in these arenas, then the dollar flow can increase rapidly.
The iPhone has completely changed how I interact with information on the go. When I travel I leave the notebook at home.
I just want to repeat that there's nothing that we've proposed that would make it harder for you to purchase a firearm.
I think that it's important for judges to understand that if a woman is out there trying to raise a family, trying to support her family, and is being treated unfairly, then the court has to stand up, if nobody else will. And that's the kind of judge that I want.
Jobs was brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it
Nobody likes taxes. I would prefer that none of us had to pay taxes, including myself.
Libraries have a special role to play in our knowledge economy. Your institutions have been and should be a place where parents and children come to read together and learn together. We should take our kids there more.

Sometimes they're nothing, sometimes they're something, sometimes there's a connection that years later may show up. All of this information is useful.
[America] will stand steadfast with Israel in pursuit of security and a lasting peace.
We cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself...
Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity, until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country.
Obama's response when asked to define sin: "Being out of alignment with my values."
I think that one of the things that we all agree to is that the touchstone for economic policy is, does it allow the average American to find good employment and see their incomes rise; that we can't just look at things in the aggregate, we do want to grow the pie, but we want to make sure that pros
At the dawn of the 21st century, where knowledge is literally power, where it unlocks the gates of opportunity and success, we all have responsibilities as parents, as librarians, as educators, as politicians, and as citizens to instill in our children a love of reading so that we can give them a ch
One faction of one party, in one house of Congress, in one branch of government, doesn't get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election.
In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school, two years at a Catholic school. In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell my mother that I made faces during Koranic studies.
America, we are better than these last eight years. We are a better country than this.
I think we can provide common-sense approaches to the issue of illegal guns that are ending up on the streets. We can make sure that criminals don't have guns in their hands. We can make certain that those who are mentally deranged are not getting a hold of handguns. We can trace guns that have been
I have fought against spending. I have fought against special interests. I have fought for reform.
I'll turn the page on a growing empire of classified information. We'll protect sources and methods, but we won't use sources and methods to hide the truth.
The Freedom of Information Act should be administered with a clear presumption: In the face of doubt, openness prevails. The Government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed, or becau
