Geek Humor (reprinted from the Metro Spirit 2-7-13)
Geek Humor – A physicist, a biologist and a mathematician are sitting in a street café watching people entering and leaving the house on the other side of the street. First they see two people entering the house. Time passes. After a while they notice three people leaving the house. The physicist says, “The measurement wasn’t accurate.” The biologist says, “They must have reproduced.” The mathematician says, “If one more person enters the house then it will be empty.” –Anonymous
Who Do You Trust? – The Ponemon Institute released its annual survey of the Most Trusted Companies for Privacy. The study asks consumers to name and rate organizations that they believe are committed to protecting personal privacy. For the 6th year in a row, American Express was rated the Most Trusted Company, followed by HP, Amazon, IBM and the U.S. Postal Service. Health Care was rated the top industry, with WebMD being the top company within that sector.
The study also held a couple of nuggets with regards to consumer behavior. To start, 78% of respondents stated they believe protection of their personal information as important or very important. However, the behavior indicates otherwise as 63% admitted to sharing sensitive personal information with an organization they DID NOT KNOW OR TRUST! (D’oh!) Of those that admitted sharing, 60% did this SIMPLY FOR CONVENIENCE!
I dare any of these folk to ask me why they get so much spam.
Super Tweet – Currently, I am sitting in my office with a glass of milk and a box of Oreo’s. The lights are off. While my first attempt was a miss, I can confirm the Superbowl tweet: You can dunk in the dark.
