Dropping More NYC

Monday, August 15th, 2005

Most of the folks who read my weblog know I travel to New York City often, sometimes for business and other times for pleasure. A couple of times a year my wife has to go up for the NY Gift Show as well as the Extracts trade events for her business, so what could be […]

Trick App: Meetro

Saturday, August 13th, 2005

Check out this new service called Meetro. Launched by Meetroduction, LLC, the software allows you to find like-minded individuals that are in close proximity to you. This could be interesting.

“Technically speaking, Meetro is radius and proximity based software. Untechnically speaking, it finds like-minded people around you instantly. Wherever you are. So whether […]

Podcasting Gets Fundage

Thursday, August 11th, 2005

Well you have to admit, this is certainly interesting. Looks like the money is backing the podfather and company’s venture Podshow. $8.85 million to be exact.

Also, Odeo has secured some funds as well. Looks like things are starting to happen and people are certainly placing bets that podcasting will pay off in the future. […]

Friday, August 5th, 2005

Here are two interesting tools that I found on a couple of the blogs I am subscribed to:

Pell On Odeo

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005

Dave Pell on Odeo:

“I know that it’s called podcasting and that suggests the use of an iPod, but my favorite thing about the well designed Odeo is that I can just press the play button right there on the web page….

…It’s about the content, not the container.”

Isn’t that the truth. I personally listen to more […]

Talking Wine Labels

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005

This is an interesting idea that I came across on Iconoculture. Italy’s Modulgraf Printing is releasing a wine label that will transmit audio information about wine. The concept works very much like a museum tour or a city tour. Wine purchasers can listen to information about a wine’s origin, what foods it will go […]

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2005

On a completely different note, apparently England has a new licensing law for governing the sale of alcohol and the people who run the businesses are not down with what they need to do. There are over 100,000 establishments being put at risk of being shut down due to new paperwork.
