Guy ignores me
Last Updated Jun 18, 2009 1:19 PM EDT Welcome to Guy Vs. Guy! In this recurring feature, Rick and Dave square off on the business and technology issues of the day. This week's topic: Twitter. It's everywhere these days, but does it have any practical value? Can businesses (and business people) leverage it as a cheap, unique marketing tool, or does the dearth of active users make it much a-tweet about nothing? Rick: When a technology lands on the cover of Time Magazine, as Twitter did last week, you know it has officially "arrived." It took a couple years, but Twitter has definitely entered the mainstream consciousness. And herein lies an awesome opportunity for savvy business users. You can go ahead and call Twitter a "pointless waste of time," but remember: That's what people said in the early days of blogs and social networks, too. Dave: It's interesting that you are using Time, poster child of the Old Media, as some sort of yardstick for measuring tech relevance. The fact that Time … [Read more...] about Guy Vs.

Last Updated Oct 14, 2010 5:43 PM EDT By Richard Laermer, CEO, RLM PR, New York City My PR agency, which creates and manages campaigns for technology firms and entrepreneurial ventures, has been around for 20 years. We've got 15 staff and about $2 million in annual revenue. I've also written 12 books and spend half my time doing speaking engagements, and so I've made influential connections. I'm guessing a lot of people view me as an authority in a bunch of fields, and so I get sought out a lot for plain old everyday advice. The trouble is the Internet has made it too easy to contact people and that ease translates to inherent laziness. Back when we sent messages through the U.S. mail, about a million years ago, we all needed to think through what we wanted to say. Now our written communication is disposable. We push buttons -- our thoughts appear and vanish like spit on a griddle -- and we rarely, if ever, consider how our messages are received. As a result, I lose half of my day … [Read more...] about My Business Philosophy: I Won’t Help You Unless You Help Me
DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband has not worked in months and seems happy to live off me. If I raise the subject of money or him finding work, he starts shouting then will ignore me for days. We’ve been married for five years. He says he loves me but his actions don’t match. I pay all the bills and I pay for his drinking and smoking. I’m also gradually paying back money he owes. He said he was depressed so I paid for him to see a counsellor. He went a couple of times and then told me the counsellor said it was OK for him to drink nine cans of Stella a day. His moods really stress me out, both at work and at home. We’re both 28. Is my marriage a sham?
