Posted by Scott July 19, 2010

The following is a blog entry from Seth Godin's Blog by .

Posted by Scott June 29, 2010

The following is an excerpt from a column in Smashing Magazine by .

No matter where you go in the known universe, there is design-by-committee. It has become a pecking order of disaster for the society that used to pride itself on being a mover and shaker and that allowed its mavericks and dreamers to innovate their way to success. In a business climate fueled by fear and the “Peter Principle,” as it is today, a decision not made is a tragedy averted.
