Should the plentitude of data the information age affords us be all that drives corporate decision-making? What about the ability companies now have—more than ever—to connect with their audiences in a more human and direct way? The real question is, does being dedicated to data somehow exclude more "human" approaches?
Edwards Deming would be so proud. The man who endowed the Japanese with a passion for quality after the Second World War might appreciate the level of perfection his protege Toyota now brings to the fine art of corporate self-destruction.
Recently The Big Idea posted this remark: "Opening up domain names to end in any word and be created in any language will only create confusion, fraud, and phishing".
I commented on it, and part of my comment showed up on the Fast Company lead-in, but it certainly made me pause and think when I saw it. And laugh, long and hard.
The quotation read, "I don't see that domains ending in "almost" any word would cause confusion, there being some, like the 7 "forbidden ones", that wouldn't...."
Think about that. Indeed, those 7 "forbidden" ones would not cause any confusion.
