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.

My Photo
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.

Dell Sucks: Turns Out I Was Right
Tuesday, August 29, 2006
Remember back here when I noted that Dell sucks?

Well, a few days after that I got an email from an actual person at Dell-- not one of those "auomated response, do not reply to this email" emails, but a real email from a real person with his contact info and everything. It said that Dell reads blogs and chat rooms and such to see how they are doing and it had come to their attention that I was dissatisfied, and how could this guy help?

First it creeped me out a little. Then I figured, they probably deployed 'bots to trawl the web looking for mentions, and that this was essentially world class Word of Mouth Marketing, which I am actualy into, so I could appreciate the effort. I wrote to the guy that I doubted he could help me unless he could make Dell stop sucking; that service and quality had nosedived, and it had gone from "You gotta buy from Dell" to, "God help me if I have to deal with Dell." (But I should have asked him for a new wireless keyboard and mouse because mine is all broken now, and if they write again, I will.)

Anyway, check out Business Week's article about Dell. Seems I was exactly right about the whole sucking thing. But then, you already knew that.
