The Drama Jocks̵...

It’s not quite May, and the stories of two baseball franchises are just about written: the Minnesota Twins opened a new ballpark, and haven’t lost a series yet.  The Milwaukee Brewers have blown out, been blown out, or blown a save with shocking regularity, and are knocking on the...

Info Burnout

Recently, I was leaving work and flipped around the presets on my radio dial as I pulled out of the parking lot.  Within a block, I turned it off in disgust.  I got home and fired up a web browser for no real reason but to do it, and there was nothing that I wanted to see.  Well, that’s...

The Effectiveness of...

I realized how much the way I interact with ads has changed in the last couple years. I think online ads work better on me, in part because I have the internet front and center, to do more research or get more details.  I don’t interact with my TV the same way.  This also serves to help...

And The Happiest Place On Earth Is… – 60 Minutes – CBS News. The key to happiness may be in our own brains.  Perhaps our hopes for life are too high.  The Danes have this figured out.  They don’t expect much out of life, therefore, they’re disappointed less...

CNN Fails to Stop Fall in Ratings – NYTimes.com. What’s wrong at CNN?  By my assessment, CNN is pretty balanced and not as shrill as it’s competitors.  Is that the problem?  What if the market doesn’t support an attempt at balanced...
