Spam poetry

History[edit] Several writers have claimed to have created spam poetry, and consensus has not emerged about a single origin. Some early examples come from a spam poetry competition held in 2000 by the website Satire Wire.[1][2] Animator Don Hertzfeldt began writing spam poems in his production journal in 2004.[3] Translator Jorge Candeias wrote Portuguese "spoems" daily, between 5 May 2003 and 5 May 2004, using spam subject lines as title and inspiration.[4] A book entitled 'Spam: E-mail Inspired Poems' by Ben Myers was published in 2008 by Blackheath Books [1] Myers claims to have been writing spam poems since 1999.

When Yonatan Adiri's mother fell down a bank and briefly lost consciousness when travelling in China, an initial diagnosis suggested she had a few broken ribs, but nothing more serious. Doctors were keen to fly her to Hong Kong for treatment. But Yonatan's father was worried and took photos of the CT [computerised tomography] scans of the injuries, emailing them to his son. Yonatan showed the images to a trauma doctor, who instantly diagnosed a punctured lung. "Who knows what would've happened if he hadn't taken photos?

How sense and respond organizations differ from make and sell organizations.

Because adaptive behavior is typically unplanned—often ad hoc– it is intrinsically inefficient and therefore persistently undermined by the existing efficiency-centric management paradigm. The metrics and practices fostered by this industrial age model frustrate attempts to empower people, inculcate a customer orientation, leverage adaptive technologies, and respond to unanticipated change. Those firms that have made a degree of progress in becoming more adaptive (or at least more agile or resilient) have typically relied on what Bruce Harreld of IBM called “the heroic model” of management – counting on exceptionally talented people to break the rules without breaking too much glass. Sense & Respond is a robust replacement of the legacy managerial paradigm. The Transformational Foundations of Sense & Respond. Hero's journey.
