  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    You are exactly right. I was there in Fallujah. $1 Trillion dollars wasted on some of the worst human beings this planet has ever produced, and lives wasted.

    Good article. It's too big to fail though, not to big to fail.

Other measures include demanding that unsecured creditors accept a haircut of over 90%, and cutting pensions for active and retired workers. [View news story]

  • Facebook IPO Analysis: Thanks, But No Thanks [View article]
    Great article. It was particularly interesting to me as I was thinking along the same lines when my 19 year old Manhattan hipster daughter told me she had taken herself off Facebook for a variety of reasons and was moving on to other sites I know nothing about. I am on Facebook but thinking the same thing as her. There is really not much of interest going on there. But I think it has a way to go before people lose interest. On the other hand, it is embedded everywhere now. I wouldn't buy the stock but it will be interesting to see what it morphs in to.

  • Bye Bye Blockbuster, Not So Fast Netflix [View article]
    Blockbuster is more a lesson in customer service and basic customer satisfaction. I am sure there were hundred of thousands of people like me who were absolutely delighted to switch to Netflix and never step foot in a Blockbuster ever again. They treated customers poorly and their late fee strategy was a case study in angering your customers. Other lessons are probably true with technology, but I think the lesson is old school - don't screw your customers.
