Pogo redux

Years ago, Walt Kelly immortalized the phrase, "We have met the enemy and he is us."

Weeks ago, Art Kleiner wrote of product death cycles, cheap, disposable products, and the risks they bring. Mike Docherty replied with his recipe for a cure.

Hours ago, Mike Benbow suggested an alternative and founded a movement.

No, this isn't about boycotting products from certain countries. It's about doing things well and rewarding those who do things well.

Which brings me back to Pogo: no matter whether we're a CEO or not, we're all people of this world, and we all have some say in the direction this world takes, no matter how small that say may seem. We can use our best reasoning, wisdom, and insights to understand the impact of our decisions. No matter what our budgets, we can make choices that lead towards better directions or those that lead towards worse ones. We can choose to pick well.
