Last night our long-time client Hartung Brothers, Inc. of Madison was awarded the Wisconsin Family Business of the Year award in the Large Business category. I’ve been working with HBI for 18 years now, and I’m happy to call the people there friends as well as clients. They’ve been supportive of Irish Rose and have really helped me to build the kind of business I wanted to build. It’s been a great pleasure to watch their success. They exemplify what is best about rural businesses. Well deserved!
I’m in Green Bay this morning to present at the Leadership Wisconsin 2012 Conference, Rewriting the Rules. My talk is on social media analytics and tools, “Is Social Media Working for Us?“
Doing web development I often have a need to convert a huge batch of existing HTML files to more simply-formatted text files suitable for importing or pasting into a CMS like WordPress. I finally found a great tool to make that job easier. Detagger, from JafSoft Limited costs less than $30 and has an incredible array of configuration options to get the output files you need. In the one case where I had some difficulty, the developer provided an almost immediate response and fix, on the weekend no less. You can pick up an evaluation copy or buy a copy at the JafSoft web site at http://www.jafsoft.com/detagger/html-to-text.html.
