Making Google Better-1

It's time to build the Peer-To-Peer Google...

The time has come to build the new Google!

A peer-to-peer Google that lives in millions of super desktops and super laptops and super mobile devices worldwide, with the "Google OS" under the hood. A Google that is immune to both censoring and terror strikes, and will stay up even if those huge Google data centers stop working.

Sergey and Larry, are you listening?

The Ultimate Competitive Advantage (Ask Google!)

"Brand is culture, culture is brand. It’s an iron-clad connection.

The Only Way...

"In an age of hyper-competition and non-stop innovation, the only way to stand out from the
crowd is to stand for something truly unique.

The idiot's guide to Lifetime Customer Value

"The other day, I got an e-mail from Amazon.com telling me about a new Internet marketing book they just got in stock.

They knew I might be interested in it because I'd bought other Internet marketing books from them before. And I was interested in that new one, too.

In fact, as soon as I got the e-mail, I immediately clicked through to the site, checked out the book and bought it. And in doing so, I boosted my lifetime value to Amazon by another 20 bucks."

"What are you doing?"
"Can't you see? I am sawing down this tree."

"You look exhausted. How long have you been at it?"
"Over five hours. And I am beat. This is hard work."

"Well, why don't you take a break for a few minutes and sharpen the saw? I am sure it will go a lot faster."
"I don't have time to sharpen the saw. I am too busy sawing."

Stephen Covey, "The seven habits of highly effective people"
"Nobody can prevent you from choosing to be exceptional"

The Fred Factor
"Hard work never killed a man"

Ralph Waldo Emerson and Thomas Carlyle once went for a walk through the Scottish countryside. When Emerson saw the poor soil around Ecclefechan, he asked Carlyle, "What do you raise on land like this?"

Carlyle replied, "We raise Men."

Laughing all the way to the bank...

"You can debate how much humor to use, you can debate when humor is most affectively inserted, you can even debate the type of humor that should be used. But you cannot deny the power of laughter as a universal bond from human to human, and from human to sales order form."
