Some Excellent Links


The first mention--this well-written post by Ann Handley. What a story teller! With her re-cap of a recent volunteering experience, she brings the concept of people working best when they fully understand their roles in the workplace to life. Not our normal marketing blog, but very insightful and a fun read!

And, because it's so topical, we thought you'd be interested in this post from the Seeking Alpha blog. Author, Erick Schonfeld, provides an interesting analysis that shows how the combined Microsoft/Yahoo compares to Google, financially speaking.

At the end of a long, hard work-week, this post from Advertising for Peanuts, Being Tough, hit home. While not always obvious to people who might have more physically grueling careers, those of us in marketing ARE some pretty tough cookies! We deal with deadlines, demanding clients, travel and lots of stress. This post recognizes it, and I enjoyed it.

Finally, if you simply can't wait until Sunday's main event--you know--the Super Bowl advertisements, the Adland blog has archived several for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy your weekend, and the big game!
