I seldom watch TV these days but Liz Fraley recommended the Showtime series “Homeland” to me. The premise seemed far fetched, so I came up with my own ideas for shows:
1. Hometime – about sinister lemonade
2. Homestead – about sinister subprime mortgage predatory lending
3. Homespun – about sinister knitting using sustainable materials
4. Nomeland – about sinister Alaskans
5. Gnomeland – sinister gnomes with one them possibly being a troll
6. Mobile Homeland – about sinister women in tube tops yelling at drunken men in dirty t-shirts
7. Homeless – homeless moles
Liz then came back with her own show ideas:
8. Nursing Homeland – about sinister doctors experimenting on the elderly
9. Homebase – A coming-of-age-romp set in high school (Rated: MLV)
10. Homeplate – about children of the corn little leaguers
11. Homebody – about sinister gardeners
12. Homecoming – also set in high school only (Rated:MLV)
13. Homecraft – about sinister craft fair circuit regulars
14. Homely – about sinister pageant moms
And a super special bonus from Liz:
15. Homemaker – about a sinister baker who always brings her special “almond cookies” to bake-sales, starring Jodie Foster.

On Thursday March 26, 2009 in Cupertino at the University of California Santa Cruz Extension Campus the STC Silicon Valley Chapter hosted Liz Fraley of Single Sourcing Solutions. Her topic was “Repurposing Content for Multichannel Publishing”.
Managing documents can get really complicated really fast. A single product can have a dozen models or versions and sold in over a hundred countries. Fraley helped a client cut their translations costs from $20,000 to $6700. It can be done and she can show you how.
