Now that people know it is open to DDOS attacks, Twitter will be down more often…. or is it just me.

Just recently returned from Italy! What an amazing trip…. There was great food, lots of gorgeous days and excellent shopping. I especially enjoyed Duomo area within Milan. I am going ot try to get a photo bucket or flickr feed of the pictures once i figure out that widget.

iTunes & App Store Nubie February 13, 2009

I have been using iTunes since Christmas and I have to say it is a really well thought out system. I am having some troubles though…. I have downloaded several “Apps” including Remote, Facebook and a currency / exchange rate widget, which were all free. I use Gift Cards to top up my iTunes account and it is also a great way to budget in these less than favorable economic times. Unfortunately I can’t seem to purchase items from the App Store with my iTunes credit. It wants to have billing information attached to the account. Am I doing something wrong? Can you use iTunes credits to buy stuff on the App Store? It seems likly given that the “Redeem” screen pops up sometimes… which is by association attached to iTunes credit.

In any event, it is a “seam” in a so called “seamless” system.

A while back I got a parking ticket. The cause of the ticket seemed so absurd that I actually decided to dispute the ticket. The reason for the ticket is as follows. “Park[ed] in a metered space while metered space was used by another vehicle.”

How can I have been parked in a space if another vehicle is using that space… Did I park on top? Did I fold my car up and toss it inside the other car? Better yet… Did I park on top or underneath the other car? 

All sarcasim aside the people at city hall forgave the ticket even after I had disputed by fax and failed. I told them they should have ticketed the other car as that car was really parked in my space. Ha Ha.

I was looking through my Linkedin profile today and noticed that Will Price is at widgetbox.com. I checked out the site and it is pretty interesting and the team looks smart. I had the opportunity of presenting www.terapeak.com and AERS Inc. businesses to Will a couple of years ago although we actually didn’t need to raise money. They ended up investing in Infopia, which is a great company that we work with as well.

I also noticed that Michael Dearingis listed as a independent board member. We have a few eBay contracts that have his signature on it from when he was still with eBay. It sometimes feels like a small world after all….

No more Privacy March 19, 2008

Privacy is the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves or information about themselves and thereby reveal themselves selectively. Privacy – Does not exist!

Too many businesses have a vested multi-billion dollar interest in knowing each and every consumer. What they want, is to know you better than you know yourself, and to sell! sell! sell! to you….

So what I have decided to do is reverse privacy and just let the information go. This means keeping facebook, linkedin, zoominfo, flicker, and many other accounts online up to date and full of juicy info.

I’ll let you know if there are any adverse reactions!   🙂

When I read this I thought, does anyone else get the shivers? Is this like the titanic where everyone says… “this ship is unsinkable”, and then… bad thngs happen! As an economist you look at the connections between all the variables. I am curious to know how big this house of cards is…

Hot Yoga February 11, 2008

So in the last month I have been getting to the GYM at least 3 times a week. Today I did hot yoga! It is awesome. I was surprisingly flexible. (Little tip, I did Gymnastics for a few years when I was 8 or 9). In addition I have made a pretty significantly change in my diet. NO MORE refined sugars. No sugar drinks, just water or milk. I also cut my servings in half, and eat a lot more fibre. All together I feel great. And surprisingly enough I have not really had a problem resisting the fun foods in my old diet. I have been sleeping a lot better as well.

The Hot Yoga was pretty intense. The time went by pretty quickly. You move between poses quickly, and it really pushes your physical stamina. I have good things to say about the activity.
