Knowledge @ Wharton reviews Gonzo Marketing
...you'll enjoy many of Locke's potshots at business as it is done today, such as his comments that:

  • "Microsoft has hit on a unique strategy for maintaining its position on [the list of most-visited web sites]: millions of customers trying to figure out why their computers stopped working."
  • Corporations have spent millions to develop e-commerce sites that go unvisited while a page of dancing hamsters that pulled "eighty-three bajillion hits in two weeks" cost all of $29.
  • "If the business notion of best practices had been applied from the dawn of civilization ... the Sistine Chapel ceiling would say 'Bank with Medici' and instead of a torch, the Statue of Liberty would be brandishing a tube of Preparation H.
