This blog gets mentioned! KR for Mayor?

Great piece on KR, his many amazing successes and, somehow, this blog gets some PR!   And he’s bored with ad:tech – tell me about it.

Guilty about Gilt

The Gilt team. I knew Kevin was behind it, and after reading about them in a recent BusinessWeek, I checked out the site. Dwight had invited me “over the wall.” I checked out the exec team and sure enough, Melanie Hughes was the head of HR. I dress way too casual to ever work there, and even browsing the site, I felt lost. But, luckily for them, the rest of the free world, loves what they do.

More KR infomercials on managing?

Thankfully, I wasn’t canned by KR.. and KO once told me that it’s better that he left, KR was more the guy to do the whackings that were needed.  Some points of dispute:

  • Not sure that it was 4 rounds of 250
  • Was it 2,000 to 1,000?  Perhaps
  • Morale was deep in the shitter, that’s dead-on
  • BusinessInsider seems to be running these as a series..

MediaPost Publications AdMeld Platform Leverages Dynamic Pricing, Advanced Targeting 04/02/2009. – Nice to see Brian Kane’s new haunt picking up some good press.

And KR speaking at a conference on start-ups.. he has 37 of those, so seems to be a good fit.  😉
