I am now beginning to understand why community manager's stick with it. Just as the direct blows to your responses or blog posts can take you out and towards the bottle, it's also true that the comments and enthusiasm of... Continue »

We have been cooking up some new features in the TypePad test kitchen with our beta testing team recently. We were so excited that we couldn't keep them to ourselves. Here's a sneak peak into... Continue »

I have a background as a mathematical and science Perl programmer and Typepad still allows me the kind of nice interface to create a functional and flowing blog. Typepad Theme Builder gives me the ability to CUSTOMIZE my blog with certain colors, navigation, and widdgets and MORE. I like customization because it reflects me and when I look at other blogs I say to myself if this was me I would have had a link here, I would have put another category. With Typepad Theme Builder I can do all of that. I dont know anything about CSS but I... Continue »

Michiel Frackers is an old friend of mine since the early days of our respective internet careers (he let me stay at his apartment in Amsterdam in 1994 when I was over for a conference where we first announced the launch of HotWired). At the time, he had just started Planet Internet, now the largest ISP in Holland. We've remained close ever since and both ended up many years later in the blog business. I went for tools and advertising, Michiel for content. Among his many projects is a weekly video show and I was thrilled to participate a few... Continue »

This weekend, I made this delicious bread, with Penelope's help. Isn't it pretty? And tasty--fresh bread is the best. It's pain à l'ancienne, recipes here and here. The first of those is adapted from Peter Reinhart, who's written a number... Continue »

via blog.summation.net Check out Auren's latest post, To Grow a Company, You Need to be Good at Killing Things. Moving on from things that don't work was the hardest career lesson for me to learn. I always wanted things to work and assumed that "hard work" would make it better. (Corresponding lesson: hard work doesn't equal good work.) I've seen the same lesson in tech, finance and retail. It might be as small as a marketing campaign that you worked months on or it might be as big as a business line that you've pinned your hopes on, but knowing... Continue »

But it turns out that readers have more exalted tastes, according to the Penn researchers, Jonah Berger and Katherine A. Milkman. People preferred e-mailing articles with positive rather than negative themes, and they liked to send long articles on intellectually challenging topics. via www.nytimes.com Continue »

via www.youtube.com The awesomeness of Google's super bowl ad made me try the similar search query Impress a Japanese girl. The result was that I should go to Izakaya for a nomikai. Hrm, i bet that's not a great way to impress a Japanese girl. Actually if you do that for the first date i guess you'll be doomed. My friend suggested that I should modify the query to say Impress my Japanese girlfriend to avoid the part to hook up with. Oh well, now google tells me that I have to learn about Matcha, Japanese tea, to surprise your Japanese girlfriend. I bet that doesn't work, unless you're a gaijin ... :) Finally just in case, I just changed... Continue »

"I fuck around and have you sleepin' underneath somethin'." - Beanie Sigel, Me, You, Him, and Her This is by far the VAGUEST way to threaten somebody. Here are the 3 other vaguest ways to threaten someone... 1) Don't you do stuff or it's gonna be weird for a guy. 2) Watch out for these things or you'll be thinking about stuff maybe. 3) If you look at me some way I may or may not try thingys.

"Maybe it's time to put this pussy on your sideburns." -Nicki Minaj, Bedrock by Young Money I'm pretty sure it's never time for this because this isn't enjoyable for either party. As a side note, if this is going to be suggested, it should be done without a maybe. Filed under: So insecure / Not fun at all Posted by Chris Macho Listen/Buy "Bedrock" Continue »
