WEE JOCK McFrock, the bekilted engineer, hasnae been seen for many a day since VNU bought theinquirer.net.
But he’s nae dead, nor is he forgotten. We had an emissive from him just today and he is looking forward to skilleting many a fish in the year of our Lord 2010.
As he said to me when I chatted to him on McSkype: “Och, ye cannae put a guid mon doon.”
He asked to be remembered to all of his “auld friends fit he met in bonny Lost Wages a muckle back.”
He asked me specifically – “Mike, can ye nae find that picture of the rainbow and the crock of gold at CES fit ye published a thae years back?”
It took me a while to go through the archives, but here it is, in all of its snowy glory. ♥
Someone who doesn’t wish to be benchmarked as a person has tuned us in and turned us on to Nigel Dessau’s ——-Three Minute Mentor.
Nigel is a marchitecture guy at AMD. Get ready for this. The latest – episode 24 – is “How do you write a value proposition”. I listened. I learned.
I learned that people need to be benchmarked. I learnt that in three minutes Nigel said the phrase “value proposition” 20 times in three minutes. Once every nine seconds. Now that’s value!
