This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire "The Real Mad Man Says: Creating Buzz is Not Creating a Brand"

Keith Reinhard is unlikely to confirm speculation that he's the legend behind the legendary Don Draper on AMC's long running Mad Men — even on the eve of the series finale.

After all, Reinhard has yet to confirm another piece of eternal speculation: A rumor that he paid a guy at his ad agency $50 to chase a "beautiful young woman, now my beautiful wife of 38 years, into my office."

The latest "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire: "Ex-Ford Visionary Scott Monty Tells You His Social Secrets"

It's not every day you get to sit down with an "an unstoppable force of nature" — a guy Alan Mulally, the CEO of Ford Motor Company, described as "a visionary."

But those effusive words seem less important to Scott Monty that a few simple realities. He describes himself as a husband, a dad and "generally nice guy," who enjoys writing about the changing landscape of business, technology, communications, marketing and leadership.

"Kate Cox: Why You Should Care About Net Neutrality" The latest "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire.com

"Cox says she 'make words about tech, politics, government, regulation, consumer stuff, video games, and lots of other things,' mostly for Consumerist, a site owned by Consumer Reports. In recent weeks, it's also become one of my favorite sources of information on Net Neutrality, thanks to Cox. I caught up with her last week, after the Federal Communications Commission reclassified broadband Internet and she shared her thouights on Net Neutrality and beyond.

"Paul Sagan: The Trick Is to Understand What Customers Want"

The fact that Paul Sagan is a very smart guy shouldn't surprise anyone. It runs in the family: He's a second cousin of the late Carl Sagan — the astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist and astrobiologist.

A pioneer of the broadband and digital media industries, Paul Sagan is a three-time Emmy Award winning newsman who helped build Akamai Technologies into an S&P 500-listed tech giant.

Happy Birthday Billy Joel
 
"I’ve learned that if you ask most rappers what music they were listening to while recording their latest opus, they’ll plump for the Piano Man." http://www.billyjoel.com/news/billy-joel-and-rap-affair-ages-concourse
Here is an inclusive list of things rappers like to rap about: weed, money, luxury consumer goods, spending money, places they’ve visited that rhyme with whatever they rapped about in the previous line, their exceptional prowess between the sheets, and Billy Joel.

The latest on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire: "Doreen Lorenzo: What a Cat Herder Can Teach You About Leadership"

Doreen Lorenzo is a little quirky – and not just because she lives in Austin, Texas, the city that embraces weird like no other. Her eccentricity is mostly professional (with a nod to the fact she describes herself as a kitten herder on Twitter.)
But here is the bigger bit of quirkiness: From 2013 to 2015 Lorenzo was President of New York City-based Quirky, where she oversaw product development and operations for this fast-growing invention company.
