Finally, a noble use of an iffy strategy
Does the end ever justify a means like clickbait?

 

 

 

 

populist plots
Back in September, the wild detectives, booksellers from Dallas, Texas put out their bait on the Facebook community.

Provokative populistic lines, published as clickbait. When users clicked on the links, they were directed to a blog post that included the text of the entire book.

“You fell for the bait, now fall for the book” the video concludes.

In notorious observation of my very own behavior, I’d lean toward reading a couple pages on a random basis but won’t likely pick up the book.

I have yet to discover a social media campaign that sells. Imagine Apple iiTunes movie trailers would be a campaign instead of a service. I check in on movies regularly once a week but haven’t seen a movie lately.

Test driving cars will sell cars but reading books online won’t sell books. But watching trailers on Apple iTunes will make you go see a movie. Perhaps you figure the difference in tomorrow’s blogpost.Read in fullby Angela Natividad

The story takes place on Christmas Eve, with Brody as the conductor on a train full of passengers travelling to join their loved ones for the holiday.

Alas! The arrival time is being delayed for 11 hours…

“There is a huge amount of work to drag Federal Governments and State Gonverments into the 21. Century.”

 

Vignette

 

„The Gap between the talent in the federal government and the private sector is actually not wide at all. There really smart people who work really hard here and are pationate about their work.

The technology gap is massive (laughs)!”

 

Vignette

 

“ Make it at least as easy as ordering a pizza or a airline ticket for you to be able to file your taxes.”

Oktober Fest
During the opening weekend of this year’s October Fest in Munich, you could get into any of the tents (usually the tents are so crowded, the can’t fit more people unless some are leaving). Lots of visitors in the tents but they are not overcrowded as they usually are. Small vendors and ride owners are suffering serious losses.

Security is so tight a woman living on the fair ground wasn’t allowed in with a jar of pickles she carried home. The fair ground is fenced in due to the Munich ISIS attacks. Enter or exit at the main gate only.

Ride owners and small business owners plan to turn off the lights at 9 pm tonight to protest the security measures they claim to ruin their business.

Have a seat in any of the Oktober Fest tents. Because this year you can.

At least you could until Thursday.

After that everything was back to normal.
