Sorting through old emails, I found an article describing a feature of Internet Explorer that I somewhat worked on as a Program Manager at Microsoft. “Not that it’s mind-blowing or anything” the author states as he explains how the feature “COULD” be critical. After shedding a few tears of pride, I decided to put it here to make it easier for all posterity to remember my legacy.
In an interview about her upcoming movie Pitch Perfect, Elizabeth Banks had this to say about Penn’s greatest a cappella group (full disclosure: dld):
“The big group on our campus then was the Penn Six-5000 [Banks attended the University of Pennsylvania]. I went to one of their shows and I remember watching this guy sing “Rocket Man” better than Elton John, and thinking, This is the most amazing version of “Rocket Man” I’ve ever heard in my life.”
So I’ve somehow never been to a Wal-Mart in my life. Being a business school student, we discuss Wal-Mart a lot. I know all about its process innovations, its distribution amazingness, and its supplier rape. But stepping into the store for the first time was still very overwhelming. What doesn’t Wal-mart sell? Health insurance? Diving boards?
It must be great to be a member of this family:
I’ve spent a couple of hours perusing the Wal-Mart company site for a video we were shown in management class, but I can’t find it anymore. If anyone knows where I can track down the clip about vendors/suppliers selling their souls in Bentonville please give me a heads up.
I have about 5000 bookmarks. I have a folder in my bookmarks called “blog this” that contains too many things that are all outdated. However, I will try to intersperse my posts with something from that folder. Sorry if you’ve read about it elsewhere, but I just think that some things deserve some more mentions.
