You're an oracle.
Every once and a while, Elijah will come home with a newly acquired joke from school or camp.  This weekend he dropped this nugget on Diana: “Hey mom.  Boys go to college to get more knowledge.  Girls go to Jupiter to get ...

Such a smart idea. Focus on mastery. Not grades.
The adoption of the Common Core could usher in a new era of standards-based grading.

Hi Mike,

I did take mine in and they told me it was normal. I don't like the way it sounds. The dealership gave me a brand new MCS with 250 miles on it, and it sounded exactly the same. Just don't like the sound of it. Good luck.

Adopt me.
I don’t think I’ve ever printed a retraction on HamannEggs.  Mostly because this is really all about me and I never misquote myself.  However, I recently blamed Hannah the Nanny for introducing Elijah and Luca to the foul...

Story
Tagline
If you can't act on an insight, then what's the point?
Introduction

I was most recently at Bassett & Partners — an award-winning brand and design strategy firm based in San Francisco. As VP of Strategy & Insight, I designed and conducted in-depth human-centered research to unlock rich, emotionally packed insights. I translated these insights into impactful strategies to inspire the design of new products, user interfaces, brand identities, user experiences, marketing communications — or whatever else needed to be made.

I have spearheaded projects around the world for clients including Sonos (future experience design) Nike (brand innovation), Anki DRIVE (user exploration), Seyfarth Shaw LLP (brand & positioning) and Microsoft (ways of working).

Before joining B&P, I headed up strategic planning on Wrigley's global 5 Gum advertising and was instrumental in developing and launching Alert Energy within Wrigley's innovation lab while at Energy BBDO. I also led strategic planning on Porsche Sports Cars and Heinz Ketchup advertising at Cramer-Krasselt.

My career in strategic planning started at Saatchi & Saatchi LA where I worked on all things adrenaline; from Toyota Trucks to motorsports and gaming. I was a thought leader on the “biggest launch in Toyota’s history” – Toyota Tundra, as well as Toyota’s entrance into the most American motorsport: NASCAR.

Great place to play pool and have a drink. Decent music - not too loud - not too soft. Had a blast with a couple of friends.
