I’m not too sure where this belongs, but a website mentions a custom bag manufacturer: Zugster bags. These are real custom, made-to-order messenger bags right down to the pockets, pads, and the stitching.
Yes, it’s expensive and the wait is going to be like three months but flipping through these bags gives me a big smile:
Derek’s “Heart of Pennsylvania” bag next to Jonny5’s Baileyworks with zeropergallon.com patch. These bags highlight two things close to my heart: Western Pennsylvania and bicycling.
I mention this because they are using Flickr for hosting images of these bags as they’re created. Here is the set for their messenger bag line.
I promised Bess I’d mention that I’ll be at WebSIG’s “Wiki Technology and Trends” event taking photos and generally making an ass of myself.
Admission is free with RSVP do it!
Because it is Halloween, there is a suggested dress code of being an Agent which I’ve mixed feelings about. On one hand, I don’t have that sort of tie and dress shirt lying around; on the other hand, I look devilishly handsome in a suit.
I finally created a Facebook account. Someone mentioned FaceBook being the new MySpace just one e-mail before Aaron (who has been working at Facebook for a couple years now) sent me an invite.
I took that as a sign from God.
Mitch: [As the voice of Jesus] …And from now on, stop playing with yourself.
Kent: It is God…

Here’s Brian Solis’s blog I ran across because of the latest Lunch 2.0 event (oDesk): PR 2.0. Since I’m not a PR/Marketing type I don’t understand it, but other readers might find it useful in finding there is more to Web 2.0 marketing than “viral marketing.”
Actually, I’m hurt that in PR 2.0’s latest article, Jeremiah credited Joseph with co-founding Lunch 2.0 instead of me. He deserves to be boinked for that one, especially because I distinctly remember explaining to him how four of us founded Lunch 2.0 before I blacked out at the del.icio.us party.
Here I’m telling the Lunch 2.0 story to Kay. Obviously she is overpowered to be talking to the guy who ponied up all the venture capital for Lunch 2.0 ($2.95 for the domain name). I only had three glasses of wine at this point. Still sober.

For you photography buffs, this FotoPRIX commercial is simply amazing. Continue reading
Google buys YouTube.
Is a buyout an admission that Google Video got their asses kicked in?
Not sure about the price, but it makes some sense. No media company is going to touch YouTube with a ten foot pole and the biggest cost for YouTube is bandwidth, which Google has gobs of.
Does this mean I have to find another source for my Daily Show/Colbert Report fix?
Now about those copyrights…
Someone is putting together a photographic height and weight chart.
The UI is really bad, but the idea is stellar. Continue reading
Björn Schotte just contacted me via Skype.
Besides the obvious “Europeans are more hip to this Skype thing than us American’s” comment, it gave me an opportunity to find out what he’s been up to since I haven’t seen him for two years. Continue reading
If any of you can watch any of these videos to the end, tell me about it.
I’d file this under humor but, I have no idea if any these are funny. I watched the first 12 seconds of the first few and felt that was a pretty good exercise in willpower.
Let’s just say YouTube is the modern day Gong Show.
Indeed.com’s Salary Search just got dugg because Walt Mossberg mentioned it.
I didn’t learn anything that I didn’t know back in April. But that’s because this feature has been available through SimplyHired for a while now (and I suspect SimplyHired’s may be a bit more accurate). Continue reading
