Missing the boat again?

So I just read about AOL and Microsoft teaming up against SPAM in the Washington Post. And I have to wonder where we are on the matter at work.

There's a lot of talk about anti-spam stuff. And we have assloads of anti-spam tech and the hardware to make it all work. But I don't have a clue what our official position on legally prevening, punishing, and otherwise banishing those who spam really is.

And that bothers me a bit.

The Real Message?

When I look at an advertisement, I try to find the real message it holds.

Take, for example, this page. I guess that hot women use the phone, so it must be good. And, wow, they sure are having fun!

For some reason, that image just seemed rather out of place on a page about a cell phone and its specs. Maybe we're supposed to focus on her specs instead?

I dunno... You be the judge.

Old School

I just got back from seeing Old School.

Damn, that was one funny movie. Much better than I expected. The critics may not like it and the plot is pretty thin, but I don't care. I laughed my ass off.

If you're into that genre, go see it.
