Damn. Here We Are.

[buy the print etc] [newsletter]

A CEO would need a lot of cojones to hang this one in the office.

It’s pretty contentious. Culturally speaking, its nitroglycerin.

But the thing is, there are two ways of reading it:

[One:] Oy vey, this company is a mess. Somebody please shoot me.

[Two:] Guys, becoming a company where this KINDA  stuff happens is JUST not an option, and if I hear about it, I’ll be really pissed off.

How it got interpreted, good or bad, would all depend on the company culture.

A junior who hung this in their cube without permission would probably get fired.

A CEO, however, could maybe get away with it. A brave one, anyway.

Hell, it could even do a lot of good.


  1. These are actually enormous ideas in about blogging.
    You have touched some pleasant points here.

    Any way keep up wrinting.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
