Every now and then I stray, unashamedly, from the work-related stuff. Tonight is one of those occasions. Just had to give some love to my 2nd oldest daughter, who helped lead her softball team to first place in their division. And, she was voted to represent her team in the All-Star Game this weekend.
Yep, I'm a proud Dad. And even if she didn't smash the ball farther than anybody in the league...and, even if she didn't have the best glove in the league...I'd still shower her with… Continue

When I started as a recruiter in 1993, my first job was to develop an IT contract staffing business to complement the agency's existing direct IT placement business. Over the next 3 years, I was able to build a substantial business, and saw the advantages of the contract side of the business. The ongoing, growing revenue stream was the best part.
By 1996, my comp plan was "changed" by the agency owners, (not in my favor). This change pushed me to consider starting my own firm to… Continue
Everybody has their weakness, that one irrational fear that triggers an uncontrollable-squeal-like-a-little-girl reaction in you. Do you know what I’m talking about? There’s no explaining this fear; it’s primal and undeniable. For some people this fear is manifested in spiders, or snakes, or even squirrels. Mine is frogs.
I’ve always hated frogs, ever since I was a little girl. Strangely and perversely enough, one of my dad’s more “interesting” hobbies was frog jumping. My dad would… Continue
There were two priests travelling together. One was old and the other young. On the way, they came across a shallow river. A young ravishingly beautiful lady was sitting by the side, waiting for help to cross the river. The old priest without hesitation lifted her up in his arms and carried her over the river. Seeing this, the young priest was much agitated. Once on the other side, he rebuked the elder, questioning his morals, values, etc. This went on frequently, every… Continue

It’s certainly possible the YHOO made the right decision with regards to their newly announced Google deal. They’re smart folks who obviously have deep domain knowledge of their business. Of concern, though, is that this is a tactical but not strategic move. If they were punting on search because they couldn’t match GOOGs ability to capture/structure data that could be a fair concession — they’ve… Continue
