If you go to YackTrack.com today, you might notice some minor differences. First, if you are not logged on to YackTrack, you will no longer see the Dashboard tab. I did not like the idea of a tab that did nothing and just redirecting you to the Login page. It just felt awkward to me.… Read More Just Some Minor YackTrack Tweaking

Today I wanted to present the 10 most talked about posts on this blog. This list contains the 10 posts with the most number of… Read More RegularGeek 10 Most Talked About Posts
In the current issue of Inc Magazine, there is an article about customer feedback. The basic idea is that customers tend to be vocal about the products they use and buy: Whether they are out-of-control cranks or out-of-the-blue evangelists, customers want to have their say. And if you won’t listen to them, the Internet is… Read More YackTrack Highlighted in Inc Magazine
