    heh, two things this morning.

    1) awesome track workout. From being miserable on Monday afternoon with a summer cold, to kicking ass on the track Friday morning is a great reminder of how quickly things can turn around. I think I'm becoming a speed junkie.

    2) Got my grade back in my tech writing course: normally I don't care a whole lot about this, but for our business plan assignment I decided to do up a business plan to revive New Coke - via an underground indie company. My act of subversion got a high A and was judged likely to succeed with no modifications (that said, there's a hefty amount of BS in there). So, if the CPA thing doesn't work out, I can always do the indie hipster beverage thing.

    T-bone, cool idea. Here's the theme song for the campaign: Isn't It Ironic?

    Just realized, long weekend next week and also our anniversary. Can't wait. I know this will be shocking but already have a tasting menu meal booked :)

    I'd almost think coke might go for that...

    Considering how many brands are owned by the same few companies already, why would they be opposed to giving someone the recipe and helping with the distribution in exchange for an ownership stake (but of course with no liability if it fails).

    Put it in a red can, call it just "New" or something but let the media make sure everyone knows it is actually new coke. Might not be a beverage that makes it long term and is around in 20 years...but for a while it could see success.

    finally got things on track at work, which means I don't have to go to work during our extended holiday weekend, which means I should get the bike from the shop later.

    yes!@ The whole plan evolved from the target market, being pushed towards those who were too young to remember the horror that was New Coke, the first time around. Everyone likes to cite the lessons of New Coke, but so many people never actually tried it. Well, let's remedy THAT oversight, shall we?

    The marketing materials were the first thing to come to me, which then evolved to the target market, which then dictated the advertising strategies, distribution, and manufacturing. In other words, really, really low-budget, low-tech, under-the-radar. No one would ever get rich from it.

    For a foundation, I took Jones Soda Company and asked: what if they didn't 'sell out'? It was a fun mental exercise in how far I could color outside the lines and still make it all make some sense.

    Good things are coming my way. Excited for classes on Monday, getting some jeans today, and a possible promotion is in the works. :)

    SRY NEO but you posted to the wrong thread. You should post this to "Things that are making you fat"
