Phil Martelli Quote

This is beautiful…

When the Hawks won Thursday, Martelli’s family was in tears, overcome with emotion. If the Hawks win Saturday, Martelli might even cry.

“This is the time of the life for us,” Martelli said. “My family is as invested into this as I am. I’m a basketball coach, but who I am is Phil Martelli, and I give up so much of my family time to do this. To see them so emotional and enjoying this with us — because we may never be here again — touches my heart.”

Such raw feelings will swell from everyone involved … if the Hawks win.

Journalism and War

Journalist killed in Iraq war justified

Reuters said it could not agree that the death of Dana, a prize-winning Palestinian cameraman, was justified and called for the urgent implementation of recommendations in the report to improve the safety of journalists in war zones.

What does the journalist expect. It’s war dude. People are shooting big guns at each other with the intent to destroy one another. Yes, it is tragic…but what do you expect – it’s war. Covering that shit is at your own risk in my opinion. Don’t expect young men that are killing or be killed to recognize you as a 3rd party every time.

“You are not Ditka”

Talk to my old friend Brian Moreth this morning. He is coming out to PDX in May to go golfing with Ernie Kent and me….I won it as an auction prize at the 2003 CPY Auction.

We talked of going for a few runs while he is here. I said that I wanna be careful since I am a big guy and running is hard on the knees.

He said, “Keener, you’re not Ditka, relax”

Ditka is the former Bears coach, has 2 fake hips and fake knees…I thought it was funny.

Good Experience Quote

I get this newsletter: Good Experience – the part about Graphic Designers resonated with me.

Create a good customer experience.

Which is to say, many companies base their user experience on the wrong things: office politics, “me-too” reactions to competitors, the “rules” of information architecture tactics, inertia (“we’ve always done it this way”), the ego of the graphic designer (who just wants to work at a print magazine), serving advertiser interests at the expense of the user, and a dozen other excuses for why they just can’t afford to pay attention to the customer.

Emeka Okafor Quote

“I’ve heard people say that success can be your first step toward failure. You can get complacent and you forget what got you to where you are. So I have to remind myself, ‘Keep working. Keep working, Keep working.’”

“We can talk about it all we want. But there comes a time when you just have to get it done and quit talking about it. There’s been a lot of talk here and not enough doing. ”

I have been back in the USA for about 6 weeks now. (was in Southern Hemisphere for 2 months) – something that gets to me after a while is the general braggart of what everyone/everything in America. Rarely is a person or company understating what they do, what they are or whatever. Universally it is how great they are, how great this/that is. It gets tiresome. Shaq telling me how great he is….company x telling me how great there software is…person y telling me how many countries they have been to and how wise they are now.

I reckon it is better to watch a person’s actions than to listen to what they say. Of course, when I get hammered with verbiage all the time, it is hard to watch the actions.
