itunes audio book: Business Category

was just going thru the itunes audiobooks store.

the last book (by release date) is seth godin's "The Dip (Unabridged)" Released May 10, 2007.

and the one before that. "The Big Moo: Stop trying to be perfect..." by... you guessed it again. Seth Godin (and the Group of 33).  Dec 02, 2005

and 3rd in line. John C. Maxwell's "Thinking for a change: ....", May 23, 2003.

is this the blackhole of itunes category? i'm wondering what kind of volumes sold.
looking at the audience size of itunes... can it be in 4 years, we have 3 audio books released under the "Business" category?

News of da day: Zappos pays new employees to quit.

Why Zappos Pays New Employees to Quit—And You Should Too - Harvard Business Online's Bill Taylor

Cut & Paste:

So when Zappos hires new employees, it provides a four-week training period that immerses them in the company's strategy, culture, and obsession with customers. People get paid their full salary during this period.

After a week or so in this immersive experience, though, it's time for what Zappos calls "The Offer." The fast-growing company, which works hard to recruit people to join, says to its newest employees: "If you quit today, we will pay you for the amount of time you've worked, plus we will offer you a $1,000 bonus." Zappos actually bribes its new employees to quit!

Why? Because if you're willing to take the company up on the offer, you obviously don't have the sense of commitment they are looking for. It's hard to describe the level of energy in the Zappos culture—which means, by definition, it's not for everybody. Zappos wants to learn if there's a bad fit between what makes the organization tick and what makes individual employees tick—and it's willing to pay to learn sooner rather than later. (About ten percent of new call-center employees take the money and run.)

screenshot of da day:

anyone else have noticed the newly revamped ?

i can imagine the brainstorming sessions...

"i want.... colors!... pastel colors, i want it to be vibrant! alive! bright! "

and hence someone delivered THAT.

someone gotta nominate them for some kind of award... i don't care what kind...
but that color scheme deserves an award... even if it's for craziness or something..

"avant garde gov website of the year!"

Seth's Blog: In and on and 'a'

Seth on "How to sound smart when talking about the Internet:"

'Friend' is a verb. "I'll friend you," is a totally valid thing to say.

A blog is something you have (unlike a Facebook). And blog is also a verb. As in, "I have a blog, this blog, which you probably found by googling me. I blogged about Facebook (which I'm on but don't use often). I don't IM, and I'm impossibly lax about friending people."

brings back a whole load of primary school memories...

"don't friend you anymore"
"friend, friend lah"

cmon.... can we bring back "bell ring"... aka "bell ring already, let's go for recess!"
