@Adrian_Dayton I understand where you are coming from as that was my first initial reaction. After realizing the gravity of the situation (an entire country trying to liberate itself from an oppressive regime) it angered me as an American just as much as it was a bad PR choice. The entire rest of the world reads things like that and thinks, "Typical Americans". I would urge you to go read more about the situation as I think you might be a bit uniformed.

Great stuff as usual Gini. I don't shop solely (pun intended) by brand so I can't say I've actually ever purchased KC shoes, but I probably won't now. I kind of feel like this might be equated the Monica Lewinsky scandal. I hope not, but if their stock went up 2.5% @JaimieField who knows. I don't know if this will keep people from buying his shoes or not, but I do think people just think he's an idiot for saying what he did. He just doesn't seem like the kind of guy that I would want to have lunch with.

We've got to do this. All great suggestions and super relevant. Passed this on to the higher ups. Hopefully we can adapt/look into some part of your 4 suggestions. Thanks.

All of this does seem a bit odd, but if I got a tweet/text from Seth Godin, I might actually go do it. The status definitely helps. Thinking about the actual scenario, I think most people would be pretty willing to do it. It's something different, it's someone different to engage, and for selfish reason, I might get re-tweeted by Chris Brogan. I think as narcissistic as Twitter can be sometimes, I think this would work more times than not. Sure, there's not a great ROI, but i'm going to have to agree with @markwschaefer . I think this is a good attempt at something different, and engaging a few people you might not have engaged with in the first place. But I do agree with you @ginidietrich that this is definitely not a viable income option. If you look at it as a promo/deal/contest, it comes across much more viable.

Great stuff again Gini. I'll be interested to see how it plays out.

Well said, "Rachaelseda". This is obviously the line that Wikileaks and the rest of the world is trying to walk. Who do we have to blame for this? Who can we pin this to? In this case it is Julian Assange. "Gregorylent" could you explain better what you mean by "full transparency"? Not sure I quite agree with that wording.

I agree with the others here that transparency is a good thing. It either provides an actual motivation for people to do business honestly, what a novel concept, or it forces people to become more cynical and trust in the inherent good of others less. Seth Godin has been preaching this for years. Wouldn't it be easier to just do business honestly? Isn't it way harder to be deceptive (it definitely takes more work and provides a much higher level of stress)?
