I've struggled with writing about the Maker Faire for about a month (I'm press- not a journalist). It's easy to gush about the wonders of tech's open pastures, or tougher to diametrically write existentially about future doomsday scenarios, which I admit is much easier for me.

The presidency is not a corporate CEOship where authority is checked only by the board and internal political foes. However this all plays out, I admire Carly for her tenacity; as she has demonstrated great balls. We just have to collectively decide if they belong in the White House.

"That was after my time," Fiorina said. Interesting. First, Redington Gulf was named Wholesaler of the Year for HP in 2003, when Carly Fiorina was very much the CEO. Second, this is a totally different answer than the one she delivered a week ago, to Chris Wallace.

Mark Yzaguirre

Here are the questions that need to be asked of Fiorina. Has any company asked you to be its CEO after you left Hewlett-Packard? If so, which companies did so and why didn't you take any of those offers? If not, why do you think other companies haven't been interested in hiring you?

Carly Fiorina Lies To Fox, Has A Bri-Wi Problem

Eric Schmeltzer | Posted 09.21.2015 | Politics
Eric Schmeltzer

Carly Fiorina has a big problem with the truth. More specifically, she has a problem with embellishing the truth, in a manner very reminiscent of disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams.

Donald Trump says exactly what the GOP believes. It's a simple axiom: personal wealth accumulation is everything. It's just that when The Donald expresses their credo, he ignores the shinola and emphasizes the crass.

The iconic device not too long ago defined ubiquitous, at least in the business world. Make no mistake: its legacy is alive and well. For my money, it is responsible for creating the expectation that we are always reachable, a problem that haunts us today.

A marketing consultant has to sell a product that most don't understand, to people that are not sure that they need it, and are skeptical of its value. So why would anyone want to do marketing consulting? Good question.

When you look at the data, you find that much of the advertising that is done is not just mediocre ¬- it doesn't work. When I make this statement to my clients and students at the beginning of an engagement or course, they don't believe me.

Asians have been fueling American high tech since the late 60's, and today the trend continues. The Asian mindset of humility and quietness puts many Asians into low paying jobs with long hours, which does a disservice to both their livelihoods and their respect.
