Love Matters: Rackspace

  Dave shows off his latest Rackspace swag, a black snuggie blanket and my latest “Love Matters” t-shirt that we recently made for them. Like I said before, I know it embarrasses the grown-ups to say this, but… Love matters in Business, as much as anywhere else. Rackspace knows this as much as any client […]

What is a “Cultural Object”?

[More thoughts on The Rackspace Book…] 6. ROB LA GESSE Rob La Gesse is the groovy cat who first hired gapingvoid at Rackspace. He’s also the guy who hired my friend, Robert Scoble. He’s a lot like me and Scoble, i.e. very much his own man, very much an individual. I suppose that’s why we […]

“Love, Regardless Of Cost”

We have a new t-shirt in the works: “Love, regardless of cost.” You can order yours here. We are nothing without love… We’ll do anything and everything to find it, and for a good reason. It truly completes us. Countless songs and poems have said it all… But only Hugh could turn it into four […]

“Love Matters.”

The groovy cats at Rackspace asked me to design a new t-shirt for them; this cartoon was the first (but not the last) idea I came up with. I know it embarrasses the grown-ups to say this, but… Love matters in Business, as much as anywhere else. Rackspace knows this as much as any client […]

The Geek Princess T-shirt

[Get the t-shirt here] I designed this T-shirt for all my favorite Girl Geeks that I’ve known over the years, Kathy Sierra, Hermione Way, Sarah Lacy, Alexia Tsosis, Arianna Huffington, Sarah Lamb, and too many others to mention. I love girl geeks. They make the world more interesting, prosperous, happy and fun. The world needs […]

Re. How most people hate their jobs, and how to avoid that

Our latest t-shirt design is up on Teespring. At time of writing, you’ve got 9 days left on the offer… I got good at cartooning (and later, was able to turn it into a wonderfully blissful, full-time career), not because I had that much born talent (I didn’t), it was just that I loved, loved, […]

After that, no Mayan Apocalypse t-shirt for you! [Disclaimer: gapingvoid assumes no responsibility for the world ending on December 21st. Just in case you were thinking […]

“Treat it like an adventure. An adventure with sharing.”

[The “Mediocrity Can’t Be Squeezed” t-shirt. Very appropriate for today’s post etc.] “Treat it like an adventure. An adventure worth sharing.” Like I’ve said often before, that’s my favorite line in my second book, Evil Plans. It’s been my overall marketing philosophy for the last decade: Find an adventure worth having, share the adventure with […]

@FranklinBBQ t-shirt

Another t-shirt idea: Franklin Barbecue. In case you don’t know, this is Texas’ favorite new global microbrand. Think of an Austin food truck that people are willing in wait two hours in line for, every day. You know when hipsters line up outside the Apple store for their new iPhones? It’s like that, EVERY DAY. […]

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.

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.
