   It’s ALIVE!!

Twenty hours after my Adsense Nonsense post, the following surprisingly humble bit of contrition arrived (I’ll give it the same conversational treatment I gave original notice):

Hello Mr Stock,

Please accept out apologies for an erroneous notification that was sent
out to you on January 28th in regards to your site

I love getting “out” apologies. That is way out, man!

Seriously, nice to see a typo in there. It’s a relief to realize that some human is involved in this process.


Adsense Nonsense

I’ve spent nine years promoting the Google brand worldwide — creating a viral marketing phenomenon to Google’s benefit across tens of thousands of channels, in dozens of languages — including venues from grade school coursework, to academic papers, to off-Broadway shows. Today, I’ve been rebuked for doing so.

The complaint came from… well, can you guess? No, not Microsoft — neither nor Apple nor Facebook nor Twitter. The complaint came from none other than Google itself.

I wish I could address this response to the person who sent me the complaint. But, for reasons that will become obvious, I can’t; they’re anonymous and unreachable. So, I’ll blog it instead. If enough readers like, cite, link, and retweet this article, perhaps Google will get the message.


Morgan Stanley Dope

Here’s why people see Wall Street as a con game:

   Google Added To “Best Ideas” List At Morgan Stanley – Eric Savitz – Tech Musings – Forbes.

Forbes shows the idiotic audacity to insinuate that “GOOG is up $14.15, or 2.5%, to $592.51” because “Morgan Stanley analyst Scott Devitt” likes it? Consider the implications of asserting that, “shares are getting a boost this morning from Morgan Stanley analyst Scott Devitt”? (Hmm… which is the source of the idiocy, and which of the audacity: Forbes, or Eric Savitz?)
