Emotionally Intelligent signs (a campaign that Dan Pink supports) are showing up

Once again, Dan Pink leads us to take notice of "what's trending."

A year ago, Pink told us about emotionally intelligent signs...

The principle is "can we use humor or humanity to get a message across?"

Have you noticed how Youtube announces that "your videos are ready for viewing"?   

My wife calls this "MooseJaw" style.  Look at and see the cheeky headlines and text in the catalog's descriptions of items.

Bravo to Youtube.  Let's see how we can make our signs like "Keep off the grass" and "Do not enter" and "Visitors must report to the office" and "No talking in the library" and "No food in the computer lab" more human...
