Lexus doesn't get it. Clearly, neither does its ad agency.

Clearly, this isn't coming from a Japanese ad agency. Introvert personalities are valued over extroverts over there.

Be still my heart...You mean a newspaper is HIRING, rather than FIRING, an arts critic?! Kudos to the Dallas Morning News.

Jonathan Franzen's recent essay for the UK's the Guardian, "What's Wrong with the Modern World," is receiving quite a bit of backlash. As Maria Bustillos says in this article in The New Yorker, "Franzen has a real gift for getting people into a tizzy." She goes on to throw some support Franzen's way: "... what Franzen is railing against is not mere tech obsession but, rather, the intellectual and spiritual poverty, the weakness and the obedience, of soi-disant 'creatives' who buy what they’re told rather than rage against the machine, who are too infatuated with their wonderful little toys even to look up from them while the world burns. Very few of us aren’t at least a little guilty of that. Or a lot guilty.

"Even though Franzen is one of the world’s most famous and most talented writers, his genius consists in part of an uncompromising, austere, four-eyed skepticism about his own hype. He knows himself to be utterly, terminally square. And the cool kids, called out for their own vapidity and cowardice, can smell that kind of healthy self-doubt from about a mile off. He’s a very easy target."

Interesting (if much too long) article on "technology intellectuals," who "end up writing bad books because any interesting arguments they might have in them are overwhelmed by their need to position themselves in the attention economy."

Something worth looking forward to: "A forthcoming documentary and related book, both titled “Salinger,” include detailed assertions that Mr. Salinger instructed his estate to publish at least five additional books — some of them entirely new, some extending past work — in a sequence that he intended to begin as early as 2015."

Chronically curious marketer, writer, and strategic thinker. Next-life careers: Motown backup singer / Pantone color-namer / czarina
Introduction
Marketer, writer, and strategist by profession; perennial learner, artist, and (recovering) perfectionist.

I aim to live life with intention, to do work that energizes me and makes a difference, with people whom I enjoy and respect, and to roll that rock up the hill without too much cursing and with a good haircut. It may help to know...

I'm an award-winning marketer who, for more than two decades, has been helping professional services firms, nonprofit organizations, and entrepreneurs grow their profits and find and expand their markets.

I work with companies and individuals to build business development programs that engage buyers and yield results; create marketing materials that engage audiences; and design positioning and branding strategies that capture a client's vision and personality. 

I led the marketing departments at three international law firms, where I worked with the firm's leadership to increase market and client share. Along the way, my team and I won awards for branding, positioning, advertising, and public service campaigns.

I've written for and been quoted in major industry and business media and been a frequent speaker at industry conferences.

And...as always,

I'm perennially optimistic that The Answer involves yoga and chocolate.

I initially came to Dr. Whittington because of debilitating back pain. I had decided that rather than let the pain subside and passively wait for the condition to return--this is a recurring condition that seems to be getting worse with time--I would address the underlying problems. After having x-rays to rule out other issues, I had an extended appointment with Tom. He used the x-rays to walk me carefully through the condition of my spine, including the existing damage, and the areas that we needed to address in order to minimize the potential for future damage. He developed a plan for me that I've now been following for over six months. His treatment has not only addressed my initial concern, but made me aware of other areas in my back, shoulders, and neck in which I carry stress, We're addressing these as well, and I'm learning new habits for taking care of these sensitive areas to keep stress at bay. I look forward to visiting the office for my adjustments, since I know I'll feel better when I leave. I also appreciate the attentiveness of Tom's staff.
