[Sent out today on the newsletter. Buy the print here etc.] The benefits of Consumer Capitalism- the dominant ideology of our age- are pretty self evident: Lots of people having stuff, lots of things being invented, lots of livelihoods being attained, plus the greatest measure of them all- life expectancy- being increased. But there is […]

“we love startups”

[Download the printable version here etc.] For the past couple of months, I’ve been trying to capture the Rackspace essence in a single, 550-pixel-wide cartoon. So what is THE ONE THING they need to let the world know? Above all else? My opinion? That they love startups. Hence the cartoon above. Bada. Bing.

RT @robyvandamme: http://twitpic.com/igf1m – My @gapingvoid #dinosaur print has arrived. All I need now is a good spot.

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.

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.
