Waste Management Open in Phoenix – Not Your Regular PGA Event

This PGA Tour event is one of the more popular events on tour each year.  And also the most unique, as evidenced by the following videos.  It’s great to see these players lightening up a bit and having some fun!

Caddy Races

I hope this kind of thing continues at this event for years to come.  Maybe I can make it there some day.

Super Bowl Ad Faves 2013

I decided to keep a list during the Super Bowl of my favorite ads.  Here’s this year’s list.  I think the Montana Stain from Tide was my winner this year.

Enjoy!

Oreo

My wife is a soon-to-be ex-librarian, so I thought this was a good one.

Volkswagen

I guess this had some backlash.  Calm down, mon.  The dude is from Minnesota, after all.

Taco Bell

I have this vision that this is what goes on in the retirement communities during the winter.

Tide

The magic Montana stain was a brilliant and funny concept.

Cars.com

This one reminds me of the outpost.com ad of many years ago.

Here’s the cars.com commercial:

The ads are fun, aren’t they?

3M Technology Changing Medicine

Some of the cool stuff we are doing at 3M in software are some of the industry’s best kept secrets.  One example is our Littmann 3200 Bluetooth Stethoscope.  My team worked with the division to create this system.  This telemedicine technology is some really cool stuff.  Here’s a link to a great video about this project.  Also, it’s getting some great press from healthcare leaders, highlighted by a great post coming out of Microsoft.

We’ve got several more examples of great software technology coming out of 3M.  Stay tuned as I intend to share more about what we are doing!
