It is funny to see everybody going nuts over ever Google update. Yes, things shift a bit but it isn't ending the SEO business and just as there was no way to "bitch slap" Panda for sure I doubt that there is some key that can unlock crazy easy rankings in Penguin. Hard work is always the key to success. That and persistence.
I think Google gives these updates cute names and announces them out loud is so that SEO people go nuts, waste their time trying to analyze it and openly talk about what they plan to do for counter-measures.
Take a deep breath and calm down lol. And lets get back to business as usual around here
