Jason Alba vs. JibberJobber (aka, My Silicon Valley Trip NEXT WEEK!)

February 14th, 2008

Jason's travels A lot of the submissions I’m getting for the branding contest talk about Jason Alba, not just JibberJobber. I know why, and I know how it has happened, I’m wondering if that is ultimately good. Why? What if there comes a time when Jason Alba can’t be JibberJobber (I cringe as I write this)?

I have received some extremely thought-provoking e-mails and submissions, thanks to all who are following, participating in and learning from this. It’s been a blast for me! But now, let me help muddy the waters a little by giving my schedule for next week. The reason I give this schedule is because it shows part of why and how Jason Alba and JibberJobber mix (because I try and get out there and my public face influences the JibberJobber brand).

  1. name says:

    There’s something wrong with your website. The left side overlaps the center column. I use Firefox which is a standards compliant browser.

    I’d be willing to go to some event, but I’m not paying that kind of money especially since it’s for a book I don’t want. Facebook holds zero interest for me and has too many issues with regards to users privacy. I MAYBE would have paid a smaller fee for a good networking event, but no money for a book. Sorry.

    Good luck.
