Trick App: A Long Link Solution

Friday, August 19th, 2005

Here is a very practical application of technology. The best offerings to me are ones that solve specific problems or issues. Behold URL123, the easy way to send long URL’s to people. This is a problem for many folks, especially me. I often try to send clients or colleagues URL’s via email and inevitably […]

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 […]
