Mal, a request

DocUD 2:52pm, 9 September 2006
Hi Mal:

I want to use this group and two of your pictures and some discussion as a case example for the power of customer communities. This will involve presentation to a roomful of consumer psychologists at the end of the month..

May I?

You mean we have relevance?!

Shocked, excited, and delighted. :)

Though Kittster was the creator of this fangroup so I believe her vote counts more, as an admin I have no problem with using this group in your presentation. Thanks for asking, and for coming up with the idea for your presentation.

I knew DocUD was studying us. Well, even if you aren't, I can see how we are a market segment on our own. The anti-trend segment. Of course, eventually that becomes a trend, too.

But how do you market to us? Actually make good products and make normal advertisements that don't insult our intelligence or have no relevence to the actual product?

Naw, it couldn't be that simple.

Ha ha... Well, I have been away.. just got back.. The conference is this weekend.. Will keep you posted..

CM, actually I am a "participant observer" in Mal's tribe.. and more a participant than an observer..

Jay, excel??? No, Powerpoint perhaps, with some nice slides....

can you do a webcast of your presentation?

i am thinking of using this as material for a study too, especially after the "confessional" today. i am intrigued at the idea that people feel obliged to justify their lifestyle to a bunch of strangers rather than just maintain anonymity. i will have to read up on cult psychology, group-think, society's influence on the formation of the psyche... oh the list goes on. but i need something to do, rather than harass strangers at dodger games.

Despite all my rage, i'm still just a rat in a cage.

Mal, I will be in LA next week and I have a request... If you see me walking in my crocs, please point your camera in the other direction.

Will you be wearing camo as well?
Adventures of Tintin 12 years ago
is that a request? you should have told me earlier.
Adventures of Tintin 12 years ago
you've just given me an idea. maybe a camo would help blend me with the environment, making me difficult to spot. gotta go get one at old navy now.

Make sure there's writing across the seat of your camo pants. Preferably in lime green, or failing that, navy blue... which could be hard to find since most of the asswriting is pink or white.
