[“New York Story 1″: Part of The Marfa Project. Click here to enlarge etc.] Kate Helber over at Future State (a seriously smart woman, by the way) makes a good point about Change Management: A lot of it is neurological. Like many people, at the time I tended to think of organizational change as […]

Our new Techcrunch Disrupt video

Very cool. We just did this awesome little video for Techcrunch Disrupt, the great tech conference in NYC and SF. This is going to be huge… N.B. The dinosaur’s name is “Thyroid”.

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.
