Oh, @ginidietrich i'm just not that surprised. As someone noted below, we've already been through this at Augusta. Until big business decides it's an issue and members pull out - - don't expect any change at Augusta.

I'd really have to see that Remnick knew about this agreed to go-ahead with the review. Just doesn't sound like him - at all.

@ginidietrich @TheJackB @HowieG @KDillabough @bdorman264 @KenMueller Ok, third time trying to post this comment.

Let me just say, on behalf of pocket-protector-wearing, abacus-using, social-media-paranoid, bean-counters everywhere - - I'm offended.

@HowieG Howie, so glad you liked the post. It is an incredible time to be a finance pro, isn't it? And figuring out the value - - that is indeed the trick.

Last comment has it. Spend your money on improving the business--don't get suckered into allure of SB by ad folks who have grown up dreaming of getting into the big game.

@lauraclick @ginidietrich I actually don't believe we have the right for social media at work...only that we have the right from our government. ;)

@3HatsComm I live in an industry that doesn't listen to its critics. It is soooo hard in developed industries/countries to take on new ideas, because they don't support the status quo. Only the enlightened can push past... ;-)

@Doug_Davidoff @40deuce And whether or not clients can translate 'what they hear' into profit (or more sales, or better customer service, or whatever.)

There you are again, leaning to the right. Great post, though Les.

I believe Doug Davidoff has the appropriate response---"It must translate into more business." (I'm paraphrasing, of course.)

So SM, too, will evolve. Highly complex, adaptive systems always do. That, plus the genius of our economic model, will determine which Face Book or LinkedIn's you should be involved with, Les. That is unless you want to be stuck selling buggies in a post-auto-industry world. ;)

@ginidietrich @Doug_Davidoff Ah, but you're wrong...I work for a for-profit! I've just seen it in the best CEO's I've worked with in my philanthropic endeavors. :)

@ginidietrich @Doug_Davidoff @thebrandbuilder And with that Gini, you described (insert the field here) why some rise to the top and some don't. How can you (IT, PR, finance, marketing, engineering, etc) get above your siloed expertise to now integrate and drive the organization forward.

And btw, the BEST non-profits and non-profit leaders get this too.

@Doug_Davidoff Now that working with Gini part? That must be difficult.. :-) Seriously, if only more clients were as up-front with their marketing/PR/insert-consultant-here firms as you, we'd have a lot more effective businesses/organizations. Just. Expect. Results.

@LFJeremy Yes I do believe loyalties played into the Jay/Conan situation. But loyalties to blind spots--Instead of thinking clearly through the fog on that particular issue. Egos got in the way of clear-level-headed thinking. Agree?

Well that was poorly worded. :-)

Meant to say, "Being able to nimbly adapt to the situation, and play against type in the moment, can often be very effective."

Les: Agree, though remember Zucker was considered an entertainment and leadership 'genius'.

HowieSPM: What a story, fascinating. Chaos - I love it too. It brings clarity to purpose.

GD: You're too kind. Re: not calling - that doesn't surprise me. Egos at that level often fall prey to not wanting to be perceived to be the weakest. Be able to nimbly adapt to the situation and place against type in that moment, can be often very effective.
