  1. when LEGO caught the Cluetrain how adult fans changed a kids toy company
  2. The views in this presentation do not reflect the opinion of anyone but the bonehead you see standing in front of you. These opinions certainly don't reflect the opinions of any clients or employers (especially that drunken cabinet maker from high school - man that guy was weird). If any of the information in this presentation is helpful, that's due to the sheer brilliance of the speaker. If anything is incorrect, questionable, or problematic, blame my past employment agreement for not allowing me to properly share the deeper details of the project with you. Nothing in this agreement is a trade secret, but if the insights scare you, please don't sue me.
