I’m in the process of moving my blog to wordpress. You can check out the beginnings at jenbokoff.com. I’m always open to feedback; it’s a work in process. BUT, I would love to have you follow me over there! Please take a minute to follow me over there if you have an account; I don’t want to lose this amazing community!
THANK YOU for your loyal reading!
It amazes me how many people think that I’m the president of HP. Anyone who really knows me, after all, knows how much I really, really hate computers. (And don’t get me started on tracked changes. But I digress.) Other people think I work for the Packard Foundation, or for any number of other organizations that have either Hewlett or Packard in the title. When I first told my mom about this job, she couldn’t understand why I would leave the law school to go into the home printer business. To solve this annoying brand confusion problem, we are going to propose a merger with the Packard Foundation, the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, the HP Foundation, and HP itself. The new entity will be named HF-PF-LPCH-HPF-HP.
The new .NGO and .ONG domains will be released late Summer 2014. Unlike .ORG, the new domains will only be available to NGOs, charities, and nonprofits, which will form a nice international index of verified NGOs. The new domains will be released on a first come, first serve basis, so fill out an expression of interest form today to help you get your first choice.

Instead of flowers, Walt would hope that you will do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for some poor unfortunate soul in his name.
Muenster is Muenster, no matter how you slice it.
Europe’s making a big stink over cheese. The EU wants to ban the use of names like Parmesan, feta, and Gorgonzola on US-made cheeses because ours isn’t as good or as original. Our cheese is becoming an international threat to sales and cheese identity. Our cows pale in comparison to theirs.
Getting this The Onion-worthy ban enacted would inevitably mean tough times on American businesses (especially small ones) and confusion in already chaotic supermarket aisles and on restaurant menus everywhere. It can’t happen…can it?
Government trade relations, folks!
