The Comunicano Communique

 
 

It's Monday, and I have to wonder how many people are really back to work versus being "at work" this week. Well, your trusty curator has been sniffing out the stories and making news myself in CommPro.Biz and realizing how great it is to not be traveling this holiday season.  Today we'll look at the best commercials and ads from 2015--love the Nike spot and the Atlantic spots--, read a piece about celebrity endorsements-good or bad, a rant from pal Dean Bubley and much, much more.

Have a view on the news today? Please let me know what you think....Andy Abramson

Dean Bubley's Disruptive Wireless: New Year Rant: 10 Awful Tech-Industry Terms to Stop Using in 2016

 
  In the spirit of the holiday season and New Year, this is another list about 2016. There's a bunch of words and concepts used in the technology industry that make you look like a fool, or at least lazy and sloppy.
