Bill Hicks on Marketing: "Go Kill Yourself"

I've seen it before, and unfortunately a lot of people have this opinion (or else a comedian wouldn't be making jokes about it).

And that's all it is, comedians making jokes.  I've worked with multiple companies in a marketing position, and not a single one of them employs less than moral tactics.  And at the end of the day, marketers respond to market trends and demand, because they're interested in one of many things, (such as increased brand awareness, loyalty or sales) and all of them are positive results for the company.  Selling arsenic to a baby (a joke I know, extreme example to prove a point), would not be good for the company.

Back in My Day...

How I don't miss cassette tapes...
If you're one of those people that complain about the way things are today and claim it used to be better in the past, you might want to skip this post and move on.

Actually, no.  You're the kind of person that NEEDS to read this.

We always remember the past as better than it was, and worry that the future will be worse than we expect.  However both are rarely true.
