Vuvuzelas, A Farewell to Steinbrenner, and Small Victories

Now that the World Cup is over and Spain has been declared the winner (disclosure: I appreciate the sport and the athleticism involved, but my viewing was sporadic to say the least), it’s time to pack up the vuvuzelas and move on. All-things-tech giant Mashable estimates $7.36 billion was lost in productivity during the World Cup, which is a whole lot of lost moola. A healthy work/play balance is important to one’s sanity, though, and it seemed to unite the people of the competing countries if only for the length of the game. It was also great to see America’s diversity in the teams they support, as we are a conglomeration of heritages here, and once the US was eliminated, many folks seemed to fall back on that heritage in choosing who to support. Thank you for helping us unite as countries, World Cup.

Speaking of saying good-bye, news broke today of George Steinbrenner’s death. Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that George had a way with running a business, whether it was the Yankees or a horses. After purchasing the Yankees in 1973, George was a polarizing figure in the team’s lore. Brash and unapologetic as he was successful, George always went for perfection, and I have to believe that didn’t change until his death today at 80.

Anyway, this is what’s impacting the world as AirCut inks deals with Amazon and Overstock to expand our own empire. We may not do it with the harshness of Mr. Steinbrenner or the piercing decibel level of a vuvuzela (good thing for that), but we are building a good thing, brick by brick, every day. How are you impacting the world?
