“How to make your business a better version of itself”

[A nice piece of ‘signalling’ we did for Rackspace etc.] Nice to see Harvard Business Review confirming what gapingvoid has been telling clients for years: that language affects the culture (and therefore the bottom line) of your business. This includes art, of course. From a language point of view, it’s a form of signalling. This […]

“Brands become interesting to us once interesting people start using them, not the other way around.”

[Back in 2004, I tried merging The Cluetrain with the ad industry, perhaps a couple of years before the world was really ready. Heh.] One of gapingvoid’s favorite collectors, Havas International CEO David Jones wrote a nice article in Advertising Week recently about how we need to kill the idea of “consumer”, replacing it with […]

“The more we all buy from the battery farm, the sooner we all end up living in the battery farm, ourselves.”

[I know all about the churn, Darlin'...] This made my day. The wonderful Liz Spears (who in the early days of blogging, was rightfully considered one of the best in the business) wrote an epic post about how NOT to launch a “content battery farm” to compete with the likes of HuffPo, AOL, Gawker, Forbes […]

Testimonials

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.

The New Republic
Lydia Depillis

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.

Len Schlesinger
Former President, Babson College

"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."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

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