About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

Trade Secret: Writing Effective Business Presentations
Saturday, July 17, 2004
I really oughtn't be giving it away like this, but what the heck-- what are the odds one of the five of you ever pitches agsinst me for business, right?  Anyway, I've managed to distill the outline for 90% of effective business presentations into 5 simple bullets.  Here they are:
--Shit that's happening
--What it means to (us or you)
--What we plan to do about it
--The expected outcome of the plan
--Conclusion: how the outcome deals with the shit
And that's really it.  Of course don't actually put "Shit that's happening" into your presentation; call it "environment" or "background" or "situational analysis," or something equally business-sounding.  They especially like "situational analysis."
You may think I'm kidding-- I'm told it isn't always clear-- but I'm not.  If you are staring at a blank screen and that big presentation is due tomorrow, work off this outline, and I'm betting you get it done.
Usually I get paid for gold like this.  But its yours free, for A Penny's Worth.
