Love Thy Links
1. Kansas University fans rally the faithful to protest the new font on the school's sports uniforms. People are passionate about a font? Yes! Remember that the next time you wonder if your customers could be passionate about your "boring" B2B company.
2. RealNetworks is stealthily paying three bloggers to write about live web feeds from the Big Brother 8 house. RealNetworks charges $40 for access to the show's feeds. Paid word of mouth is bad. Undercover paid word of mouth is lame.
3. What helps close more open-source software purchases? According to a recent study, better software documentation. Long live the technical writer!
4. Talk about a buzzworthy culture: At Netflix, employees take as much vacation as they want, they're paid salaries considerably higher than their peers, they determine their own percentage of cash to stock, and stock options vest immediately. One marketing manager there calls it a "fully formed adult" culture. It's that, and more.

LOL! Too funny Jackie. I hated losing Cowher, but Tomlin seems to be doing a fine job. The Rooneys definitely know how to hire coaches!
