Slacker

I know. I’m a slacker. I swear I have a good excuse. We’re getting ready to roll out some big changes in the IT rookie arena here at Franklin College, so I’ve been trying to put it all together. Until I write about our new endeavor, let me just give you a brief update on a few things worth commenting on.

I came across a great blog post comparing my favorite sport to it’s lesser counterpart and the marketing lessons we can learn. I gave my two cents on the racing bit, but the marketing aspect is genius if you as me. Check it out here: http://doteduguru.com/id230-marketing-lessons-learned-ndy-500.htmlĀ (Oh, and don’t believe all that Helio talk! He’s an open wheel guy for sure).

I’ve been doing a lot of twittering. I find it lets me vent and also give/receive quick information. I’ve never been totally interested in the WWDC, but yesterday I was hooked on what they were announcing. So I found out on Twitter! Well sort of, I found out of summarize, but that’s neither here nor their. The point is, I really wish I would have waited on the iTouch, because now there’s a $200 iPhone. Oh well. My birthday is coming soon… Maybe the best husband ever will let me get one! I’ll just have to be sure his Father’s Day gift if fabulous! Any ideas? I think he wants a GPS.

OK, back to contacting students, office retreat summary, project work, and GPS research. Oh wait, it’s lunch time… Maybe I can do all that after 1! šŸ™‚

    Hey Tiffany,

    Thanks for the link! I don’t know how genius it was, but it was definitely pushing the limits trying to find a relationship between Higher Education and IndyCar and was somehow able to pull something out of it. šŸ˜‰

    Don’t believe the $200 iPhone hype. The price on the iPhone actually went up by $40, just that it’s now bundled in mandatory activation with AT&T (with a monthly $10 data plan on top of the regular monthly fee).

    That means unlocking and using with a different carrier isn’t an option. The marketing makes it sound cheaper, but I think that comes out to the iPhone costing $40 more, plus taxes/service fees šŸ˜‰
