eCommerce Holiday Season – “Hooray! We suck less!”

Date: Thu, Jan 1, 2009 Wine Tasting

Image via Wikipedia Is there ever an occasion to celebrate sucking?  I’m hyper competitive and I can personally tell you that typically “sucking” is not an option.  Let me strike that, I’m hyper competitive with a smidge of lazy.  So … Continue reading

Date: Tue, Dec 2, 2008 Wine Tasting

Image via Wikipedia There is endless analysis out there and supposition/assumption that social media is important to the wine industry. Some people claim the vision is over-blown and that traditional sales methods will dominate for a very long time to … Continue reading

Ahhh, “Dear Abby“…what ever happened to that in this age of near real-time social media…anyway, here’s one thats worth a chuckle (but not worth the e-mail bandwidth its probably taking up!). Maybe this is a way to reduce traffic on … Continue reading

Lots of “Analysis” on how to “use” social media, is it missing the point?

Date: Tue, Nov 18, 2008 Wine Tasting

When did iStockphoto start to suck?

Date: Thu, Jul 10, 2008 Wine Tasting
