I’m staying home sick today. Not the only one. I couldn’t get to Twitter to report that (Twitter is the new way to call in sick, cause my coworkers and employees are on there). But, this is a good chance to try to catch up on email.
Hotmail’s connector to Outlook isn’t working, though. So, that’s forcing me to compare the Web interfaces of Hotmail to Gmail. Maybe there’s an interesting post to come out of that.
In the meantime, there’s a lot of good new blogs this morning on all sorts of geeky stuff. Again, I keep the noise down and the signal high (I only posted two posts on the Google API stuff, for instance, even though over on TechMeme there’s a lot more).
Stuff posted last night on ScobleShow? Sarah Blow gets interviewed by Maryam. She’s a real geek (is an embedded systems programmer and started Girl Geek Dinners, which are much cooler than my own dinners, I’ve gotta admit). I hate my laugh. I’ve gotta stop laughing so much, it really is annoying. So, here’s the deal. After January 1st everytime I laugh I’ll put $5 in a bucket for charity.
If you’re an entrepreneur and wondering what the basics of dealing with Venture Capitalists are, Philip Baddeley helps entrepreneurs in Cambridge, England, deal with getting funding. We have an interesting talk about VC 101.
Ken Thompson does the BioTeams blog and is an interesting guy (lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland). He studies animal behavior and sees what lessons he can apply to making teams more efficient.
Hope you are enjoying these videos from Europe. A few more are still to come.
I can’t wait to go to LIFT in February. Maryam and I are both going and probably will drop in on Frankfurt, Germany, to see my mom’s sister too so I can see another beer drinking tour with the geeks. Something about beer and geeks that always works.
Anyway, if you want me, use firstname.lastname@example.org instead of my Hotmail address. Gmail is still working with Outlook. Anyone see the irony in that?
