Post 28:08 Go on. Sponsor my podcast

Some readers may know that I now podcast.

It’s called SmartCall and it’s a weekly half hour about the customer service and contact centre industries.

Listen to it here, if you dare. You’ll be one of a surprising number of folks tuning in.

Long story short, we are looking for sponsors. Drop me a line of you or your clients are at all interested and I can explain what’s on offer.

Post 24:08 Why is my hair is so valuable?

There’s no getting away from it: I am a hairy man.

But it seems my hair is more valuable than you would imagine.

My silly moustache When I grew this horror for Movember last year I raised a few hundred bucks.

And I have just come back from the Kickstart Forum at which folks paid nearly $1000 to see my back shaved.

I suspect now is the time to scuttle off and find your copy of Cryptonomicon and the passage about the significance of beards if you want to figure out why people are prepared to pay so much money for me to do silly things with my facial hair.
