Brand reinforcement isn’t always about gaining leverage using ad-space and “push” advertising, but about making the brand highly visible within the digital context.

WTF are digital contexts?

Recently, I called for a special session to address ethics rules for Virginia state officials. Thus far, Governor McDonnell has disagreed with me. I am hopeful that he will change his mind on this front. There would be no better way for him to demonstrate that he’s committed to addressing the…

Well this is certainly all cooch

Mike D’Angelo (last year):

All hail young, skinny Alec Baldwin. His character—inexplicably called Blake in the credits, rather than Fuck You—doesn’t exist in the play, and he only appears in this one scene. Yet he arguably sets the tone for the entire movie, providing a much more concrete sense of the pressure these salesman are under. Baldwin gives the monologue a marvelously practiced ring, as if he goes around performing it for various seedy offices around town; he’s the motivational speaker from Hell, determined to either increase productivity or inspire suicide. And Baldwin knows how to put his own arresting spin on Mamet’s famously repetitive dialogue. I read the shooting script long ago, and the line as written was “You think I’m fuckin’ with you, I am not fuckin’ with you”—quick, stabbing, emphasis on not. Baldwin transforms it into more of a slow ritual disembowelment, separating the two sentences with a curt head-shake that seems to nullify his victims’ entire existence. (I also love the way he shoots a glance at Levene’s crotch before asking, “You call yourself a salesman, you son of a bitch?”) Vocational terrorism has rarely been so delectable.

Did not realize the best scene in the film was not in the play — and D’Angelo makes of number of arguments as to why that’s the way it should be.

Friday Flashback: The First Computer in the House
These days, in absence of computers it would be hard for Capitol Hill to conduct any business. But in the late 1960s, the new technology was a novelty in a world of typewriters and the ever-reliable pen and paper. In this 1967 photo, Speaker John McCormack and House Majority Leader Carl Albert learn to use the first computer in the House. That year, just three computers were on Capitol Hill, according to the Office of the House Historian — one for the Senate sergeant-at-arms, one for the Legislative Reference Service and one for the clerk of the House. The machines were used for inventory, payroll and other accounting work, according to the historian’s office.
