Everyone hates you. Good job!

Filed under: — The Hierophant @ 1:01 pm

An interesting post on phenomena, passion, love, and hate.

Honestly, I think I’m ready to retire the phrase ‘drinking the Kool-Aid’. I’m just not sure what to replace it with. Suggestions?

    Corporate America, and by that I mean GE, is totally into the idea presented in the last figure there. We just call it Net Promoter Score. NPS is basically the “would you recommend our product or service to you friend” rating scale. You only get meaningful data when your customer is passionate about your company. Love and hate responses return results. That zone of mediocrity is basically meaningless data. It means you are neither doing something wrong nor right; when no one tells you anything it’s impossible to grow.

    For replacing ‘drinking the Koo-Aid’, how about ‘politely suggesting someone convert to linux’?

  3. The Knight of Cups Says:

    As a long-time fan of actual Kool-Aid, I wholeheartedly applaud this measure.

    That reminds me. I haven’t had Defcon Kool-Aid in like three years. My pancreas has probably recovered enough by now that I could try it again.
