I hate marketplaces

9, Dec 2007

I am so sick of people either deluding themselves, or trying to pull in big words in hoping to get you to look at their [for sale] listing. Classic example: ‘MV-M.COM a premium name for sale’ In what reality is ‘mv-m’ a premium domain? Hell the domain was registered just over 10 days ago – […]

The #3 site on Google UK for ‘ipod’ (and #1 if ‘UK only’ is ticked) is Beyond the decent name, the question is – how do they get there? Good ol Yahoo Site Explorer reveals all. It seems like the good people at decided that they needed authority. They also realized that getting […]

Now – what Digg does is hide old comments from Wen product? Thoroughly the canada brand viagra was morning no the […]

ILM:07 – and UGC?!

1, Dec 2007

Whew – its 2:10 am, and I’m finally home. We were stuck in the plan for roughly 2 hours due to excessive rain. Overall – great show. I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot. But – lets start off with the one negative (or I guess two). I listened in one […]
