Make Marketing History

The views of a marketing deviant.

I've never bothered to fill out a social networking profile beyond the bare minimum but if I had, then Warren Zevon, Carl Hiaasen and David Letterman would all have featured. So I knew already that the three were intertwined in real life - even though I came to each of them individually and by unconnected routes.

But reading Zevon's biography, I was surprised to see how many other people I like were also part of his life at some time. In similar vein, I'm frequently discovering that people who've become friends turn out to have a read the same obscure business book as I did years before we met.

I don't know what this means or how it happens, but it's not coincidence.

you're right - it's not a coincidence, it's the start of a conspiracy theory. i think that book should be registered on the FBI's list of unnatural searches and you should be warned when someone borrows it from any university library or adds it to an amazon wishlist.
