My brother surprised me today with tickets to the 1st round of March Madness here in Dallas. We saw two match ups. NC State vs. Cal and Texas vs. Penn.
My bracket was 1 up and 1 down afterwards. Very close matches. Hardly enough words to describe having been there. Perhaps in my podcast.
No, I do not expect you to go looking for someone like our cute cubicle worker, Dilbert. But, check out this recent posting by Scott Adams in his Dilbert Blog. He contemplates a dating site based upon two criteria. His two are listed and I am sure he will get plenty more suggestions. In fact, I suggested hair and siblings. Hopefully he will post my comment so that you can read more.
Just started another book today. 37signals just released their new e-book Getting Real. I read the intro, and it is targeted toward folks who are using, interested in, or own an online application. Jason Fried from 37signals comments:
It details the business, design, programming, and marketing principles of 37signals and is packed with keep-it-simple insights, contrarian points of view, and unconventional approaches to software design. This is not a technical book or a design tutorial, it’s a book of ideas.
I just started a new book. Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephan Dubner. I will let you know what I think as the days pass by. The introduction was very thought provoking, so I have hopes that the rest of the book will be as good. A mental adventure. oh, and if you are interested in buying the book, take a look to the left and you can click through to Amazon.
I just finished reading the book Naked Conversations by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel. I had written before on this book a week ago. Unfortunately, as I read the book from cover to cover I found myself becoming less "Wow'd" by the content. The first few chapters convey some interesting facts about blogging and business. This was good background and interesting due to its stories. The middle few chapters were less intersting give case examples of right & wrong in the blogosphere. By the end, information seemed to be regurgitated and no longer keeping my attention.
All in all, a good read. I handed this to my father (not a blogger) and he was becoming very curious about starting one for his singles ministry at his church, but was beginning to wane from that idea as he read about the "rules of right & wrong." More geared toward folks who have not, are not familiar with blogging.
