CultureMail (TM) is rockin’

My business partner, Jason and I were thinking, if people like our daily newsletter so much, it would be awesome to take what we’ve learned from that, and create something useful for our clients. Ergo: Introducing CULTUREMAIL (TM): “Just like our own gaping­void news­let­ter, but for your own busi­ness and peo­ple.”  [You can read more […]

what’s your coping mechanism?

Lum’s Barbecue, Junction, Texas. This is where I normally stop for lunch when I drive between Alpine and Austin. Just over halfway. That smoker’s been there over 3o years, they tell me. And the guy who smokes the meat has been there even longer. One more reason to love living out here. People were quite […]

stormhoek bottles

[A print idea for #evilplans. Click on image to enlarge etc.] EUREKA! I had my EVIL PLANS road trip idea, but it was lacking the social object it needed to really work. Sure, driving around Texas with a video camera and an idea about “Dream Big” was all very well, but it needed something to […]

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.
