September, Day 2. A day of work - many meetings, conference calls, status reports to read and write and review and reply to... I was frazzled all day, my todo list is now longer than when I started, and the one thing I had to do - for which I am on negative time - I never did. I love Mondays, especially when they fall on a Tuesday.
In the Asia Times, "Spengler" explains How Obama lost the election. You might disagree, and events may prove him wrong, but it is certainly an interesting and well reasoned point of view.
So like everyone (probably like you?) I tried Google Chrome, and I liked it. Very fast, very clean. Worked really well and I encountered no problems, and I liked the extra real estate and lack of clutter. But then I chanced to load a site with ads, and I suddenly remembered why I prefer Firefox: Adblock. There is simply no contest when Firefox extensions are added into the mix. YMMV, but I doubt it.
Today's picture of the day: Atlantis breaking the sound barrier.
Jason Calcanis explains how to demo your startup. Ten simple rules, starting with "show your product within the first 60 seconds". I so believe this. And later, violating his own stricture to keep it simple, he adds how to demo your startup, part 2, with eight more rules :) They're not bad, but not as fundamental as the first ten, IMHO.
Here's an interesting twist on online dating: Psismic. The idea is that you post stuff you like, and other people do too, and they match you with other people who like the same things you do. Seems like it might work?
Remember I posted about Dash? This is a GPS unit that makes realtime decisions based on traffic. Each Dash subscriber not only receives updates, but contributes to the traffic database by sending telemetry. Sounds like a great idea - and guess what? - today I received an email telling me I'm under consideration for beta-testing Dash in the L.A. area! Wow, how cool is that! Anyway I filled out their survey and we'll see what happens - stay tuned...
