OK, so maybe we sent one of our remote employees - let's call him Hippy McNeckbeard - a replacement laptop with some extraneous equipment included in the box. And by "extraneous" I mean a half-eaten chocolate candy bar, some floppy disks, a postcard of Prince William, an inappropriately adorable background image, CDs with drivers for items you would only find in an antique store, a 2008 SF Giants calendar, and various other useless items. Now, I.T. professionals know that remote employees are a special challenge. These employees are usually very smart, but far too ugly to have in the general... Continue »

So last night, I was on the hunt for a TV. I found one on Craig's List that looked promising and after a few emails, I told the guy I'd be on my way over to check it out. He lives in the Haight, which is a short drive over from where I live in the Mission. I don't have a car though, so I started heading over there on my scooter. Knowing that despite my incredible ability to move large objects on my scooter (I once moved everything in my apartment to a new place using only a '79... Continue »

The following are 37 really interesting stats about social media. [Note: just as an aside, if you are looking for a great free e-book about SharePoint, check out THIS LINK. No registration required; a free resource to use. For a full list of all 124 "8 things" posts, go HERE. Also, make sure you "LIKE" this blog -- upper right hand corner -- and I'll give $1 for each to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.] To give credit where credit is due, I had NOTHING to do with their creation. It might be that everyone else has already seen the presentation -- it was released while I was on vacation -- but worth re-highlighting even if everyone else has already seen. I saw the original blog post on a site called Committed Sardine, which has some great content -- well worth tracking. Here is their original post. Their citation was back to a YouTube video by Socialnomics09 that can be found at THIS LINK. I'll embed their video at the end of this post. Here's the text list of the stats from the Committed Sardine site: By 2010 Gen Y will outnumber Baby Boomers….96% of them have joined a social... Continue »

I've been enjoying Flipboard the past few days: the design is engaging, the flipping animation addictive, and their content channels are well-packaged. The most interesting feature, of course, is the social aggregation. Flipboard isn't the most efficient way to catch... Continue »

DJ Chall, I'm looking at you! Ok... so you start the game by picking an artist (band or singer). Then everyone writes down ten artists they think will come up when you listen to that artist's station on Pandora. Then, you listen to ten songs on Pandora. The person with the most hits wins that round and picks the next artist. I'm thinking of calling it "Pandorette", but I'm open to ideas. Continue »

Well, first of all, the Iphone app. The original idea behind Oleboo was mainly centered around mobile phones. Reality and practicality pushed us to launch a... Continue »
