One of my more popular efforts – a blast from the past, so to speak. I’m sure many haven’t seen it and I had a lot of comment on it (mainly on Facebook, where my blog also appears).
Are cable companies next? All over America, the little red boxes and the home computer are building market share. The old ideas, once new and exciting disappear.
I can hope (and my hopes get dashed regularly) that this new environment will actually feature competition. For in America, the free market is like Christianity, a great idea that we haven’t quite got around to yet.
I would like to see the day when the exorbitant rates charged by cable for “packages” designed to maximise their profits while providing dozens of channels no one wants is all a thing of the past. Customer satisfaction and product excellence are also much discussed and preached concepts. Not only a shallow religion but once again not often practiced.
David Yamada blogs regularly on the subject of workplace bullying (among other issues). I very much respect his work and this piece is particularly eloquent and I recommend it to your attention.
I would like to praise the article but the power of the article and its raw emotional power is beyond my poor powers of description. You should just read.
