All Americans should applaud TED and Audible for providing a platform for ideas to be spread anonymously. We must also remain vigilant lest this important freedom be destroyed.

IM: The director [Jonathan Levine] wrote it. I’ve not been directly involved as far as collaborating on it, but I’ve been consulted a lot, a lot more than what’s normal, from what I’m told. When they first hired the director he had lunch with me and just chatted about his ideas and vision for the whole thing, and he’s been interacting with me as he wrote the script.

My suggestion is: use those recently-bequeathed iTunes gift cards you’ve received, tucked into stockings and envelopes, to buy yourself this companion for the cold months that are coming. And hope that it is not 5, 10, 13 years before the next Kate Bush release.
Look back over the past year — longer, if the business is well-established — and see how it’s described: giant, survivor, upstart, fading star, confused? Longer profiles, which tend to be deeply reported, are especially important. Are they generally neutral, or consistently critical? Neither one is a deal-breaker, but it will help to understand their reputation — and gauge your own tolerance for working at a company that’s criticized. Alternatively, is the company invisible? That’s not necessarily bad: a young company in stealth mode, or an older one turning around, should be quiet. It’s not a good sign for a company to crave attention indiscriminately. There is such a thing as bad press!
