I guess I prefer to see things in the concrete and simple terms rather
abstract pieces of marketing bunk like the following from I suspect a
soon to be ex-dot.com (perhaps symptomatic you might say of the
"business" gibberish these past 3 years).  Try not to laugh to hard:

   "Xxxxxx is the world's first company dedicated to using the science
of     experience strategy, design, and technology to create
extraordinary results    for our clients.
   Our entire team is committed to transforming our clients'
businesses through the creation of multi-channel experiences that
inspire and strengthen dynamic connections among people, businesses,
channels, and communities."

Seems pretty clear to me - sign me up!!! :>)
