My New Favorite Website: Simply Breakfast

Friday, February 1st, 2008

I don’t remember where I first discovered it, but I have quickly fallen in love with Simply Breakfast. The premise is simple: every day the author of the site takes a picture of her breakfast. Sounds simple and it is. Amazing looking shots that make your mouth water… For a sampling, check out fried egg [...]

I do loves me some Twitter

Friday, January 4th, 2008

As I mentioned the other day, while I wasn’t really active around marusin.com I do post/read a lot over at Twitter. What’s really slick (and scary at the same time) is a little script that auto-generates some stats based upon your Twitter usage… With that said, here’s my Twitter use in a nutshell for 2007! [...]

Testing Out Joost

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

I am lucky enough to be one of the “chosen few” (which means I was at the right place at the right time) to get a beta account for Joost. If you’re not familiar, Joost is basically online television. Everything is interactive and on-demand. Joostâ„¢ is a new way of watching TV on the internet, [...]

Just what the web needs… Another URL shortener!

Sunday, February 18th, 2007

Like there isn’t a zillion of them out there already… I was bored the other day and wanted to create “my own” URL shortening utility and decided to throw it out on a site that I’ve owned for a bit (and did nothing with)… If you’re looking for a URL-shortening utility (you know, to “shrink [...]

With all of the craziness that has been going on lately, I haven’t had a chance to mention my friend John’s new website -> coachKidsSports.com I think between John’s passion for his kids and sports, this site is going to be awesome. He has a lot of great ideas and I am really interested to [...]

Chris Launched gada.be

Monday, October 10th, 2005

A lot of us on the net have been holding onto a secret for the last couple of weeks. Chris Pirillo “privately” launched his new service, gada.be, to his Braintrust community a week or so ago. I’ve been playing around with it since and have to say that it’s a fantastic service… So now that [...]

Membership Has Its Privileges

Monday, April 18th, 2005

Flickr decided to give me a gift! An extra year on my Pro Account and two free Pro Accounts to give away… Now who has been nice to me lately? :)

43 Things

Friday, November 19th, 2004

I was reading Signal vs Noise this morning and stumbled upon a posting about a project that 37signals have been working on with a company in Seattle named Robots In Seattle (how cool is that name for a company?) :) The project is called 43 Things. (not to be confused with Jay-Z’s “99 Problems”) Anyways, [...]

Subservient Chicken

Sunday, April 18th, 2004

http://subservientchicken.com/ may be the most disturbing website I’ve ever seen… It also may be the coolest… I cannot describe it other than head over there (and know that it’s owned by Burger King)

Yup, I’m a “Tagger”
