The Bricker’s Haircut

Hello.

As you are no doubt aware there is a terrible internet "content crisis" going on. Not enough content on the net. "They" won't give us anything fresh and new, regardless of how loud the cries of consumers become. Well I was getting a haircut the other day and thought about what my friend Keeks said -- "I want to put some content in the internet. Deep in the internet."

I realized that if this content problem was ever going to be solved we had to stop waiting for those lazy guys at Time Warner to get on it. I volunteer to step up to the plate and offer the enclosed content, a picture of my new haircut, to the internet.

Please feel free to share this photo with anyone who is feeling content starved. It isn't copyrighted or anything. If you want others, just let me know. I leave you with this simple question:

What are you doing in the internet??

P.S. If anyone has Rod Grams address, this would no doubt be something he would be interested in.

Yes! Yes! Yes! (exclaimed with the same fervor as found in the content laden Herbal Essence ads). I was busy emailing one of those all-important life-improving chain letters to all those I hold dear when I received this very crucial message from Keeks and Jim: let's put more content on the internet. Well, attached is a picture that is so heavy and thought provoking that you may just have to take a smoke break afterwards to discuss it with your co-workers....

Here are some other sites that are authorities on all the phony stuff that gets passed around. The first two are for urban legends, the other two are specifically for virus hoaxes.

Just a reminder, all pools are due back to me (along with $5 entry fee) no later than 11:00 on Thursday morning, as the games tip off at 11:15.

Good luck. If you still need sheets, get one from my mailbox #243.

The law students have been bragging that we MBA's don't know what the hell we're doing. I'd love nothing more than for two MBA's to take first and second. And, since I'll be taking first, I am looking for a fellow MBA to take second. Don't be late, because I'd hate for you to pick all 63 games correctly and yet hand your sheet in at 11:01 and be thereby disqualified!

Good luck, and go Florida A&M!!!!

Subject: CIMS Reports

To All My Favorite Colleagues:

In my last class on Monday, the students raised some questions about the CIMS Reports -- written and presentation.

With respect to the written "two-pager per instructor," I told them that the general thrust of each report would be to describe the lessons learned within the faculty member's area. I also told them that each faculty member could provide more explicit instructions on how to use the two-pages -- [Tim: you also get a Value4 printout.].

If you want to be more specific than "lessons learned in ____," please send an email to the students by sometime on Friday.

With respect to the final presentations, I told the students that:

(a) the presentations are to be made to the Board of Directors

(b) the focus of the presentation on the logic of adding value to their company. In doing this there would be two perspectives. The first perspective is historical ... as they examine the two years of their experience what lessons did they learn in how they created (or destroyed) value. The second perspective is, if the Board lets them continue to manage the company, how will they go about creating value in the future. In both the historical and future perspectives, their presentations are not just to summarize the numbers of the value created (or destroyed or to be created). But, the presentations must be a managerial interpretations of their actions in their competitive environment and how these created (or destroyed or will create) value.

I told them that they should plan on no more than 20-25 minutes of presentation time with 15-20 minutes of question-and-answers.

Finally, I told them to have some fun with the presentations.

Norm

Hello Norm,

Thank you for the information about our reports. Though you haven't yet given me a grade (since I just finished the last test in your class), I feel compelled to share with you the following web site.

http://members.aol.com/dpointer1/haircut.html

It was set up this afternoon by a cross functional group of my friends who feel they haven't seen me in a while. Trust that it hasn't borrowed from my attention to your classwork (though I would appreciate if you don't share this with Dr. Nantell whose exam I am about to prepare for), and that it might bring you a smile.

Warm regards,

Jim Bernard (aka "Bricker")

Yes we received the card, and cake is one thing she did not think was necessary, however Gayle has taken your advice and has included that in my diet of malted milks, Hot fudge sundeas, Sirloin steaks, baked potatoes, and pie.

I haven't dropped any weight in a week, so apparently her force feed program is working.

I'm a little confused. I responded with E Mail the day we received the card but apparently it didn't get out.

Hope school is going well. Keep your nose in the books and spring break will be here before you know it.

Thank you for your support of current content on the Internet.
