Ugh. Strunk and White Me, Please

Through the miracle of licencing I have my hands on the Nielsen Norman Group report on Intranets.

Which is interesting, helpful, yada yada.

It is also over 350 pages long.

350 pages of the same thing. Over and over again.

Please, someone give them a case of "The Elements of Style" for Christmas.

It's too late for me, but maybe the poor fools who read NEXT years reports won't drown....

(no, the picture isn't me. but it is how I feel. to a t.)

That same phenomenon happens in the tax business - we call it "pay by the pound" tax returns. Every conceivable worksheet and supporting schedule gets attached, regardless of their usefulness or bulk, in attempt to make the client feel that they got good value.

Um, yeah, that was me. "Sign in to Google" apparently doesn't know me, even though my Gmail / iGoogle account does.

Did I happen to mention I agree with all the "Google is poorly integrated" posts?

There's no TEAM in Google. That's my line, and I'm sticking to it.

Well, that and the thing about Wonder Woman w/o Joss....
