Hello Fr(eye)day my old friend
The firm rolled out a new website and when I first saw it I was all wow that’s big fonts and stuff. Gee it’s pretty ugly. Found out at lunch today that it was designed for mobile devices … because clearly no one uses desktops or laptops anymore.
That’s not mine (mine’s older than five years); rather, that’s Too Many Cooks.
A five-year old Tumblr that hasn’t had anything written on it in 3.5 years. Awesome.
Maybe it’s a sign that someone should write something. :) It was a wonderful experience.
For those of you who came in during the TMC commercial break it was a collaborative writing project with some amazingly talented Tumblr people playing in the literary sandbox together. Go check it out.
When I see telephone poles full of staples and thumbtacks I hear music. So many poles like this around New Orleans announcing which band will be at which bar which day.
from a bad shot through a shop window on City Island. They had some cool ship models but it was not a good time of day to be shooting and reflections and glare and whatever. Just taking a break from writing a white paper to play with some black and white photo editing.
or the continuing saga of tales from the dark side of my office. I was meeting with some people in my office and caught an email notification out of the corner of my eye. It looked like spam. The subject line read “ZQ.” I’m guessing male enhancement spam perhaps … a play on GQ?
Anyway, I eventually look at my email and see the “ZQ” email and notice that the From has the tell-tale messaging indicator next to it from our Microsoft Lync integration so the email was COMING FROM INSIDE THE OFFICE.
The text of the email simple says “Sent from my iPhone.” It is addressed to the group email for everyone in the NY office … all roughly thousand of us. It is from the director of the department that handles, among other things, communication.
Yep, we were butt emailed by the head of our communications department.
