RIP Wayne Hurlbert

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

It was with great sadness that I learned of the recent death of blogger Wayne Hurlbert, who suffered a massive heart attack while at his computer, waiting to start an episode of Blog Talk Radio. Wayne was a long time blogger on business, blogging for business, business books, and other topics. While it was not the only impetus, this was one of the factors influencing me to take on a revival and redirection of this fallow blog.

We’re All Business Bloggers Now

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

I’ve been wanting to kick of my return to blogging here – but with posts of substance rather than the CotC stuff now elsewhere – with a post observing/opining that business blogging is not only not unusual or niche anymore, but that it’s rampant in this economy or lack thereof.

The boundaries between political and business/economics blogging has also blurred further. Again, the circumstances we are in make it inevitable. Government always affects the business and economic climate and activities, if seldom so negatively, and whether it ought to or not. That’s shown up in my selections for what now passes for CotC.

At any rate, it sometimes feels as if anything I can add or opine here would be superfluous, and perhaps there won’t be much or often, but the itch is getting more intense. Time to scratch it.

We both began blogging just shy of five years ago, and some of his observations are also my own.
