mobile blog posting?

February 4th, 2009 · 1 Comment

So I am sitting here at John The Baker’s, an Italian place up in Stamford, CT. If you ever happen to find yourself in Stamford I recommend it. Fast service, friendly people, tasty pizza. I also recently discovered the WordPress application for the iPhone. This opens up a whole world of possibilities, like liveblogging from […]

will it shred?

January 28th, 2009 · No Comments

Found a fun link today to a company that makes huge industrial-sized shredders. They’ve also decided to make videos depicting that their shredders will shred just about anything. Given that I’ve just changed the banner photo to a bowling picture, I think this video is relevant. If I ever have any industrial shredder needs, these […]

For those who don’t know, woot is a website that pioneered the “Deal a Day” concept, where starting at midnight Central, a new item goes up for sale until they either sell out or it hits midnight again and the pumpkin will turn into something new, like a talking animatronic Elvis. Last year they jumped […]

July 25th, 2008 · 6 Comments

What are your odds for winning $1,000,000 by playing Plinko during The Price is Right Primetime Special? I thought about this the other day as I was watching The Price Is Right at night, where they have two chances on every show to win $1,000,000. On this particular show, one of those opportunities came during […]

looking for book suggestions

July 17th, 2008 · 4 Comments

I’m taking an open call on books that I should read. I’ll be taking some trips soon that will involve lots of travel time and lots of free time, and since I can’t sit still for more than three minutes at a time, I’d like some books to read. E-mail me or leave a comment.

mommy, where do billionaires come from?

June 8th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Forbes released an article a couple of weeks ago talking about what universities billionaires went to. http://www.forbes.com/2008/05/19/billionaires-harvard-education-biz-billies-cx_af_0519billieu.html Because I like the new charting functionality in Excel 2007, I went ahead and plotted those schools out on a chart. It makes sense that Harvard, Stanford, and Penn are at the top because they have ridiculously strong […]

flight of the conchords

May 16th, 2008 · 1 Comment

My friend Kate introduced Flight of the Conchords to us this past summer. If you don’t know who they are, they’re New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo. They were number three, but the tribute band ‘Like of the Conchords’ has taken over that spot. They have a show on HBO which […]
