Blog: Money for Nothing - 2010-03-04
A recent post on Marty's blog contained a promotion piece for the Bridge Publications Library Donation Campaign. The promo piece claims that the Library Donation Campaign has placed "millions" of books in libraries. Of course what they don't tell their potential donors is that most of those books go in the library front door and right out the back door into resale bins, where they are sold for pennies on the dollar or pulped. They don't make it onto the shelves.
But what is interesting is the cheesy "contributor status" scale they have designed, complete with super-corny clip art. Some promotional genius has decided to "position" the contributor statuses with the Roman Empire, with status "levels" of Legionnaire, Centurion, Senior Centurion, Leader of the Legion, Commander of the Legion and Lion of the Legion. That anyone would fall for this sort of super-corny stuff is hard to believe, but it brings up the "tech" these people are using.
