Gary Vaynerchuk at Web 2.0

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

I have been following Gary Vaynerchuk for quite a while and the more that I read him / watch him, the more that I’m inspired…. “There is no reason in 2008 to do shit you hate…” damn, i get fired up after watching this video… not kidding.

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! [...]

Trying to Venture Into Chumby Development

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

So I got my Chumby a week or two back and have to say that I really love it (for what it does ~ sits on the counter and delivers me content that I care about)…  I think that’s what is so cool about this device:  It can be as basic or as advanced as [...]

Tempted By The Chumby

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

I’ve been very intrigued by the Chumby since it was first announced/privately released at FOO Camp back in 2006. I signed up then to be notified when it would be available to the general public. Since then there has been bits and pieces of information released as to the device and the features/functionality it would [...]

Testing Out Blogging Clients (Round 2)

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

About a year ago (give or take a few months), I was putting out the blog feelers seeing if anyone had any advice on desktop blogging clients. I got a bunch of responses and opinions, but then went right back to working right out of my WordPress Administration pages. A couple of days ago, MarsEdit [...]

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, [...]

12 Hours on Rails (I could easily have done 24)

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

I survived. It was a long day on paper, but it felt like it was about 15 minutes. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of spending 12 hours in a hotel conference room learning all about Ruby and Rails at the Softies on Rails Workshop. I know you’re immediately saying to yourself, “who would send you [...]

Softies on Rails

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

Hey all, just a quick note to see if anyone reading this (or finding it on the web) is going to be attending the Softies on Rails Workshop that is going on this Saturday (01/13/2007) in the Chicago-ish area? If you are, let me know. I’m really looking forward to this event and getting a [...]

TECH cocktail 3 Announced

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

TECH cocktail 3 has been announced! The festivities go down on January 25, 2007 at Amira (in the NBC Tower). I’m really looking forward to this event as I haven’t been disappointed yet. I’m not familiar with Amira, but hopefully it’s a little larger (space-wise) to accommodate the throngs of cocktailer’s that have been showing [...]
