I learned that leaders lead. They do not sit at desks pushing pencils and yapping with their feet up letting others do the work.

Why I admire hs intern

Heartside Ministry is a great place to take an online class, job search, or get help with all things computer-ish. The hsIntern will help you post a resume, write a cover letter, teach you html, graphics, internet searching, help you with your term paper and help you fill out your FAFSA. Best of all, it was all FREE! Thanks, hsIntern.

Follow-up: Not only did this story generate alot of hoo-ha but having taken a second look after checking the above post to make sure it showed, I took a second look at the packaging. The bottle is well, Dark. Reminiscent of a dark beer almost. Minimalist design makes it sortof mysterious. Perhaps the package design alone will motivate the first try?

Influence the Blogosphere Revisited

So my digg feed is relatively recent and today I'm poking around for research sources to provide raw fodder for the term paper mill and what do I find? I'm tagged as a spammer on digg already. Below is the recap:

When exactly did consulting become anathema? I use digg and the rest of the alphabet soup to gather information useful to *me*. I do not represent myself or my feeds as professonal journalism. However to be fair to you, I will give both your articles opining on the more general topic of rss a thoughtful read, fair enough? Slapping me with spamishness without further comment feels like being smacked in the face with a fish.

Perhaps I should preclude my own research with a pre-claimer?

Sheesh buddy!

I guess now I'll have to review his stuff and report back. When I have time...after the rough drafts of two term papers are, well drafted. Wait, raw research, compare and contrast paper, Hmmmmm.....should I source packrat........? Interesting....

Well anyway, If I do there'll be an update. For now I expect the subject has died a quiet UN-dugg death.
