Website data (aka “Big Data”-gag) is probably the most talked about and most misunderstood information as it relates to usefulness to the average user.  We can extrapolate how many people visit a website daily or what part of the world they come from and none of that matters to the average user unless it ties to the sale of a product and or service.   Many bloggers, for instance, use this information to attract advertisers to invest in their site.  This is how successful bloggers could have earned an income.

As we’ve often spoken of on this site the tech and startup bubble popped and so has the blogger bubble.  Interestingly for the same reason: smoke and mirrors. From the startup side it’s the use of hypergrowth and how investors manipulate that data to attract unaware buyers who think the hypergrowth will continue and they’ll get their ROI (return on investment-or money spent to purchase a startup) back in months or years when in actuality hypergrowth cannot be sustained and the purchaser never earns their return on their investment but instead experiences great financial loss. An excellent example of this is Acclarent, a startup out of Menlo Park, sold to Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon in 2010 for $785 million and projected by Gary Pruden (Ethicon Executive) that same year Acclarent would be a billion dollar company by 2017.  Not. Even. Close.

The blog world followed a similar pattern on a much smaller scale, in that many purchased fake followers as a manipulation to attract the less than savvy marketing departments, who in turn never saw the pull through to sales (meaning people who visited a blog never actually purchased products advertised) in part because fake followers do not buy real products.  It is much harder to gain followers organically (naturally) and many took short cuts to get to the money.  Something bloggers didn’t know though is that company marketing departments study that data as it’s tied to sales and projections or for lack of a better word “quota.”

The problem is that no one wants to see themselves as a “victim” or abused in the business sense. Large companies like Johnson & Johnson would rather write-off the loss to shareholders than admit fault or possibly worse, internal collusion as money is still being funneled to these same type of programs; and, certainly people from small marketing departments don’t want to admit they got had by a mommy blogger. Remember the lies we tell ourselves are far worse than far than the ones anyone else could ever tell us.

In short though, a few bad apples have ruined the startup and blogger cart for those who were running their businesses ethically.

Killing My Career is unique in that it doesn’t sell a product or service directly to consumers and it doesn’t make money from marketing or advertising.  The goal of this site it to make patients, consumers, employees and taxpayers alike aware of corporate abuse and fraud so that we don’t become abused or victims. Which means the data obtained for this site is used differently than sites that use data to generate revenue.  The data from this site is used to force accountability. Those corporations that employ tactics from The Sociopathic Business Model™  borrow another term from the psychology world: Narcissism-is the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one’s own attributes. Also known as a lightning rod to the fraud compliments of the search bar.

Those engaged in unethical and or illegal activity must constantly look over their shoulder (even if just virtually) and are fearful of the exposure of the truth and often hire additional accomplices to help keep the truth hidden. Those that are frequent readers of this site know though that all accomplices eventually become victims and it’s not a matter of “if” it’s “when.”

Skadden Arps etc.

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP …. nearly 2,000 attorneys, it is one of the largest, most prestigious and highest-grossing law firms in the world. It’s always nice when a law firm refers to itself as “prestigious” so humble not unlike those who employ tactics from The Sociopathic Business Model™.

Sample data shows the same IP looked at this site three times with certain targets tagged:

Bill Facteau Former CEO of Acclarent

Bill Facteau, president and CEO of EarLens, a Menlo Park, Calif.-based manufacturer, was a bit more restrained in his criticism of the feds.

“We’d like to have a lightly-regulated industry,” he said. MedCity News

 

and

Earl “Eb” Bright J.D./M.B.A.

Earl Eb Bright 12 15  2014

If Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom Llp had been retained by individuals (tagged from their firm) to sue myself or the site data shows they’ve been aware of the information since October 21, 2014 (if not sooner) and have yet to take legal action which could negate claims and in fact look retaliatory if acted upon in the future.  

Or perhaps the person at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom Llp IP 162.90.144.200 is just really bored. 

Really…really bored.  

Skadden Arps etc second time 12 15 2014.

Ohh and back again? If Bill Facteau and Earl Eb Bright MBA hired Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom they should be more than a little disappointed by the firms activities and why would they need such a “prestigious” firm to represent them?  If they didn’t hire them-well then the bigger question is who did and why? This is not necessarily an indictment of any wrongdoing though.

Guess who’s back? Back again?

    Yep. Probably doing “image triage” for their client. You are on the radar.
