The Proposed SONY-BMG Settlement
The proposed settlement for CONSUMERS is interesting – and we take a look at the impact this may have to the long-term health of SONY-BMG, as well as what it may mean as a trend for corporate accountability.

2005 in Review – and what to do with this knowledge!
Rather than just recap some of the top trends, we go a bit deeper and look at what it means for those of us in the trenches – and what we might be doing about it next year. Even though some of the trends are negative, the results I found to be quite promising — especially as we look forward to an exciting and productive 2006.

Have a safe and Happy New Year!
