Doing Things Right!

Wow I had a great meeting with a publisher in downtown DC, the General Manager is just the person this group needed to provide vision and push through a solution to build their online publishing business. What makes him so great? Well it's simple, he understandst that his data is king, that he needed to take his material and convert it from Word to XML format, this makes any future development for his company much easier. It amazes me how many companies don't understand the importance of moving their information into a standardized and portable format. It would be fantastic to work with this group in some fashion, I think that they have a lot to offer me, but I know I have tons I can offer them with my past electronic publishing experience. My biggest weekness in getting the work is that I don't have a lot of "Ad" expereince. I know this is something that I could pick up quickly though (I'm plenty of things and despite my protests that I'm an idiot, I know I'm anything but an idiot).


In the developing good Karma department, when I got back to my car from the metro, I saw some poor guy looking for a spot to park (I've been in that position before), I told him to follow me and I gave him my spot :). I also might have found a position for one of my friends who is also looking for work, I hope it works out for him, he's a good guy (though I'll never tell him that ;)).
