A footnote to the SteveNote

8.24.2011 by Kevin Creighton

Now that Steve Jobs has moved on as iCEO, I wish him the best, and hope that the cancer that has dogged him as of late will continue to decline.

But oh, how I'll miss the SteveNote addresses at MacWorld. A SteveNote wasn't just a product launch, it was a part pilgrimage, part celebration, part Sunday morning worship at the Triple Rock Church. It was a gathering of the faithful to hear a message from our High Priest.

Gonna miss it. I'll still buy Apple products, of course (heck, I bought a IIci and a Lombard, so my sanity has been in question for quite some time now), but it will be out of duty and not out of love.

Thanks for the memories, Steve. Thanks for saving Apple when no one else could.

Planning to fail

Strategy isn't a goal, it isn't a business plan. Strategy is how you deal with reality. And in the past 14 years, nobody's done it better than Apple.

"So if you really want to be like Apple, drop the fluff- filled vision statements and magical wishes. Pretend your company’s existence is at stake, coldly evaluate the environment, and make choices. Stop thinking of strategy as meaningless verbiage or financial goals and treat it as a serious design challenge."

VERY useful.

Social is a lightweight plugin for WordPress that handles a lot of the heavy lifting of making your blog seamlessly integrate with Facebook and Twitter. Through the use of a proxy application, you can associate your Twitter and Facebook accounts with your blog and its users. Once you publish a new post, you can then choose to automatically broadcast a message to any accounts authenticated with the overall blog or your current logged-in user.

Well done, Mailchimp, well done.
