Finally a little extra time to catch up on blog/tech news reading.
Chad has an interesting story about cleaning up after the so-called expert consultants. I think everyone has gotten a bad consultant or two in their time, and I think that’s why the best way to handle consultants is to hire them to do the work, but make sure you understand, at least on a cursory level, what work they are doing.
After reading a bit about the Grammys, I have an observation, and a prediction. Some of the same people who have taken an anti-war stance will watch their sales slip and turn around and blame it on “being oppressed” because of their political leanings. As if they are being martyred for what they believe. But the truth is that their sales go down because after making some really silly and nonsensical statements, people will see that they’re supporting an idiot and stop buying their stuff. Not that I’m saying all people who hold anti-war positions are idiots, there are some very good reasons to be against the war that I can respect, but have you seen some of the quotes of these people? They have absolutely no grasp on reality.
Case in point, Sheryl Crow from the American Music Awards:
“I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies.”
What the hell does that have to do with the present situation? We have enemies. There are people in the world who want to kill us. Are we supposed to let them so that others don’t hate us? Is that what she actually thinks? If she and her security people were confronted by a man with a knife would she turn and say to him “I don’t want to be your enemy, I want to be your friend”? Or would her security team kick the $#%^ out of the guy? That’s a “preventative strike”. 🙂
OK no more political ramblings for today..
