How Wired Are You?

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

Have you become callous to technology and the use of the internet? Can’t imagine life or running a business without it? Then read this and think for a sec:

“It may sometimes seem like everyone is on the Internet, but one in five Americans say they’ve never been online and a third say they don’t even […]

$91 Billion Conversation

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

Fortune Magazine has a great article running dubbed “Billionaire Buddies: The $91 Billion Conversation.” A conversation between two billionaire buddies, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. I find it fascinating to get inside the minds of truly amazing people, especially two individuals who have generated great wealth in their lives. Both of them are similar in […]

The Art of Execution: A Primer

Saturday, October 22nd, 2005

I am working on writing a couple of essays, mostly for the pure enjoyment of writing, which is why I started blogging in the first place, but also, to keep on learning. I find that when I write on a particular subject or topic, I learn infinitely more about it then when I simply read […]

Aqua Vino

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

This is really wild, Chilean winery Viña Casanueva, has spearheaded a new way to store wine, dubbed aqua-cellaring:

“Viña Casanueva cellars its wines underwater off the Chilean coast, where several seaside restaurants send divers to retrieve bottles of the ocean-aged vintages when diners order them.”

Text Messaging Addiction?

Sunday, October 16th, 2005

I am convinced that if you can do something, then there is an addiction for it. The BBC reports on a Scottish teenager who is being treated for text messaging and email addiction. Thats nuts, but it appears this kid definitely had issues:

“In the space of a year, ‘Steven’ spent £4,500 on text messaging.”

“He was […]

Treo Update: Like Clockwork

Saturday, October 15th, 2005

My Treo has returned! My LCD screen was replaced and the team at Palm was also gracious enough to replace the entire plastic casing of my Treo, so all of those little knicks and scratches are no longer :-) The device was supposed to be returned to me by Friday and actually there was an […]

Trick App: Tagyu

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

I am digging the fact that many people are now using tags when writing their blog posts. About a month ago, I started using a WordPress plugin that allows me to tag my posts in Technorati. By simply clicking on my own tags, I have come across many new blogs that I enjoy reading and […]

Food & Beverage Bloggage

Tuesday, October 11th, 2005

I love affinity blogging, you know folks who take one niche subject and blog the heck out of it. Today I would like to share two blogs that I recently came across that are definitely on topic. Up first in the food category, I found out one of my colleagues in the online marketing […]
