Price Competition, Commoditization... Phooey!

Sat, 12 May 2007 11:08:23 PDT

This weekend I had a strange dream ...I was many years older than I am now. What was left of my salt and pepper hair was snow white. I walked with a beautifully decorated hickory and silver cane.

Thu, 05 Apr 2007 23:11:42 PDT

I do a lot of critiques, and by far the most common criticism I have is directed at the sheer length of the copy people seem to be writing these days. It seems they think they need to write a book to sell a $39 ebook online, complete with a 74-word headline.There is a time and a place for long copy, and there is a time and a place for short copy.
