Neo: Indeed I don't think it is ethical for a CEO to act as Mackey did. See my several posts on "Wacky Mackey" in this blog from 2007 and 2009, for example: http://jon8332.typepad.com/force_for_good/2007/07/wacky-mackey-ep.html

ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Felix rapidly strengthened into a dangerous Category 5 hurricane and churned through the Caribbean Sea on a path toward Central America, where forecasters said it could make landfall as “potentially catastrophic” storm.
Felix was packing winds of up to 165 mph as it headed west, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. It was projected to skirt Honduras’ coastline on Tuesday before slamming into Belize on Wednesday.
“As it stands, we’re still thinking that it will be a potentially catastrophic system in the early portions of this week, Tuesday evening, possibly affecting Honduras and then toward the coast of Belize,” said Dave Roberts, a hurricane specialist at the center in Miami.

David Byrne (former singer of the Talking Heads, now New Media Renaissance Man and still musician) is a prolific online uhm, "Don't Call it a Blog" award-winning Journal Writer- perhaps the word "Blog" will fragment into more specific categories, (don't know yet what those words might be) but somthings along the lines of "Clog" for a culture blog - (ok, not the best example) but other spinoff words could be on the horizon just to help narrow down and categorize the 100,000,000 "blogs" out there...

It is high time for us to move past the "blog" moniker. The term is loaded with misunderstanding, for one. It's really just a community website that's actively updated. So what's a good word for that?
