How To Win A Tech War

If you got a tech product, do not, we repeat: do not talk to CTOs, talk to the CEOs and CXOs! Place your ad in the Wallstreet Journal!

Of course, this does not apply to tech combinations packaged for the consumer. You'd need the super bowl for that. And CTOs and software engineers have higher profiles now than 30, 20, 10 years ago. You still gotta talk to CEOs because "at the end of the day" it's them who make the decisions and nobody sells mass market products without partners.

Want prove for the advice? Here's an educational video. You gotta watch through it though to really learn all about it. If you are too impatient and just want the essence and soon forget it again, watch from about 13:00 or even more to the point from 24:30.

Crush the Competition!

Geschichtsinn

Dana International/Yaron Cohen (1. Platz 1998) ist lange vergessen und Verka Serduchka/Andrij Danilko (2. Platz 2007) wurde hierzulande nie wahrgenommen.

Die entsprechenden Suchergebnisse in nationalen österreichischen Medien haben uns dann auch ein wenig enttäuscht:

Auch das Fernsehen hat uns diesbezüglich natürlich nicht befriedigen können. Damit aber die beiden obigen Damen doch nicht ganz vergessen seien, hebt Youtube wie meistens alles auf und kann man einfach nachsehen

Verka Serduchka - Dancing Lasha Tumbai

(Ist übrigens einer ihrer schwächeren Songs)

Dana International - Diva

(Ein guter Song, finden wir)

Mrs Maas and Ms Zieman

Mrs Maas

One summer afternoon Mrs Oedipa Maas came home from a Tupperware party whose hostess had put perhaps too much kirsch in the fondue to find that she, Oedipa, had been named executor, or she supposed executrix, of the estate of one Pierce Inverarity, a California real estate mogul who had once lost two million dollars in his spare time but still had assets numerous and tangled enough to make the job of sorting it all out more than honorary.

Oedipa stood in the living room, stared at by the greenish dead eye of the TV tube, spoke the name of God, tried to feel as drunk as possible. But this did not work. She thought of a hotel room in Mazatlan whose door had just been slammed, it seemed forever, waking up two hundred birds down in the lobby; a sunrise over the library slope at Cornell University that nobody out on it had seen because the slope faces west; a dry, disconsolate tune from the fourth movement of the Bartok Concerto for Orchestra; a whitewashed bust of Jay Gould that Pierce kept over the bed on a shelf so narrow for it she'd always had the hovering fear it would someday topple on them. Was that how he'd died, she wondered, among dreams, crushed by the only ikon in the house? That only made her laugh out loud and helpless: You're so sick, Oedipa, she told herself, or the room, which knew.

Mia

Ms Ziemann

Mia Ziemann needed to know what to wear at a deathbed.

The net counseled simplicity and sincerity. Mia was a ninety-four-year-old Californian medical economist, while the prospective deceased, Martin Warshaw, had been her college sweetheart some seventy-four years previously. Mia could expect some prepared statement. There would very likely be a bequest of some sort. Conversation would involve an attempt to put Mr. Warshaw’s life into retrospective order, to supply the sense of grace and closure so desirable during life’s final chapter. She would not be asked to witness the actual moment of death.

A deathbed reunion of long-separated lovers was a challenge to etiquette, but the late twenty-first century shone in social tidiness. Dilemmas of this sort were exhaustively debated in endless rounds of calls for commentary, working papers from boards of experts, anecdotal testimonies, ethics conventions, sworn public hearings, policy manuals. No aspect of human existence escaped smoothing over by thoughtful, seasoned, and mature counsel.

About the Need To Sleep Long Enough

According to Wikipedia, in 1990 this erstwhile Roman Catholic and Canadian Vogue do Brasil covergirl uttered "We1 don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day" in a conversation with a certain Jonathan van Meter in American Vogue. She thus created the second best diva quote in known history, which is no mean feat with so many trying so hard.

Linda E. on Vogue do Brasil

Go figure Ms. Germanotta, there are still idols to reach out there, for in terms of divaness you as well as Ms. Kidman but also Ms. Klum and even Ms. Ciccone are far to obviously ambitious and diligent for that particular sort of elegance as regrettably we would have to say now. There is a lesson out there for modern talented ladies to check out.
1: "We" refering to herself and fellow supermodel Christy Turlington.
