Explain corporate intellectual property
In the wake of the recent defeat of ACTA in the European Parliament, the key questions are not just what the European Commission will now do, but what lessons the EU and US will learn from it, especially in the wake of the equally dramatic derailing of SOPA earlier this year. At the annual meeting of the Transatlantic Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Working Group in Brussels last week, both the EU and US agencies and rights holders let slip a few hints about what they are really thinking.
Here, for example, is how the EU views the post-ACTA situation, as reported by Intellectual Property Watch:
here IP rights once was a field for experts, now it drives the masses to the streets, the European Commission said referring to recent protests against the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA). Without a much stronger commitment from rights holders, the rejection of ACTA would just be the beginning, Commission representatives said according to observers.
This is extraordinary: rather than taking on board the concerns expressed by tens of thousands of European citizens about how ACTA was negotiated, and the way it sought to preserve outdated business models by weakening online privacy and freedom, the European Commission instead wants rights holders to fight back against this wave of protests

You can tell whose competant and who's not.
There are too many SVP types who wear the suit, get the checks and (with barely a high school diploma to justify their credentials) assume authority in that position with no knowledge about it whatsoever. Recruiters are this bad too.
I've had recruiters who were not able to tell me what the job descriptions are because they couldn't compr...hat tells me something about that company.
Corporate America turned into a scuzzy, ghetto mobscene.-they're not even 'underachievers' because underachievers can figure out the obvious. But recruiter types are the kids who proudly drove to Jr. High (and you snubbed in High School)-and they insist on being your boss. It's a total joke. I badly wish I had the capital to start my own company.
Not sure I agree, trebor... (Part 2 of 2)
...just like steel, railroads, and manufacturing never came back to the US, neither will hi-tech.
I think this comes down to how we define the much-too-vague term "high-tech".
It's certainly not going to be life as we knew it, that's a given. But "high-tech" will return to the U.S., in the form of innovation, inventiveness, and entrepeneurship (assuming that investable capital...of what you knew or even what you know, but instead a matter of what you can learn. And that, I firmly believe, will be on the comeback trail. There are many of us who have already proven that we're smart, we learn fast, and we come through; we already did that in one IT world, and there's no reason to think we can't do it in the next IT world, whatever --- and whenever --- that turns out to be.
Uh, short term (usually overnight) Fed loans
Are the backbone of our financial system. I'm not going to explain it to you because, well, I don't feel like it and you proly wouldn't understand. But the article itself makes some good points....
The Fed always does this in times of crisis.
The balance was more than 25 times the Feds pre-crisis lending peak of $46 billion on Sept. 12, 2001, the day after terrorists attacked the ...ity, there was only one place to go.
And they were promised confidentiality, which is kinda important when talking about bank runs!
Even banks that survived the crisis without government capital injections tapped the Fed through programs that promised confidentiality. London-based Barclays Plc (BARC) borrowed $64.9 billion and Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) got $66 billion.
How can SV fix its diversity problem?
Most people know there has been a long, and often rancorous debate (with Mike Arrington right smack dab in the middle as usual )
But people agree, there is a lack of diversity, what isn't clear is why and what the solutions are if any.
At the risk of oversimplifying this complex debate, we can see two ideological camps.
One holds that Silicon Valley is a purely race- and gender... as a kind of venture capital or high-tech corporate affirmative action, is expensive and inefficient.
The other believes that biases in the culture and active discrimination prevent qualified women and minorities from entering the field and rising the only way to explain the terribly low numbers from those groups among professionals in STEM generally and in Silicon Valley in particular.
How to explain...
Not so much with the corporate marketing side of things but in financial services (assuming personal financial strategy preparation is the goal) ups and downs are tough to deal with... make a wrong decision or... more likely... allow a client to make a poor decision that wipes out a big chunk of their capital and that's heartbreaking if you're in it for the philanthropic side of the equation.
Marketing heartace should have been said as more of a headache - between managing client expectations/projects/budgets/etc... it gets to be a lot of responsibility - often you'll be asked to wear many different varied hats.
