When you start dreaming that you’re blogging…

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

Over this past weekend, I had two of the strangest dreams that I can remember. I guess they’re not really strange (at least to me) as they are extremely detailed. In these dreams I found myself typing out blog posts on this site. They were very surreal in that I remember key details about them [...]

Hey, Mr./Ms. Blogger… Where’s your search box?

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

I’ve been noticing more and more that people are excluding search boxes/searching from their weblogs? Yes, I’m too lazy to seek them out right now and link to them but trust me, they’re out there. Keep your eyes open. They are missing from lots of sites. This seems strange to me since every major piece [...]

Kicking Vox’s tires

Friday, July 21st, 2006

I was lucky enough to get invited to check out Six Apart’s new blogging service, Vox. With that said, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I don’t know how much is going to go on over there, but you can check out my site at http://marusin.vox.com So far, it’s pretty slick and has a very [...]

Motivation and Opportunity

Sunday, June 11th, 2006

As you may or may not know (I’m guessing you know by now if your kind of nerd-ish), Robert Scoble is leaving Microsoft. There’s tons of buzz going around the blog world. With that said, Mr. Scoble just published a post that, frankly, got my heart pumping and honestly brought a tear to my eye… [...]

In the words of Nike…

I had a post sitting in draft mode, but JR took my thoughts and beat me to the punch… I couldn’t have said it much better.

I just saw on Scoble’s site that his new book, “Naked Conversations”, is on sale today at 800ceoread.com for half off (and free shipping) today only (01.20.2006). I just ordered it for the low price of $12.47… I’ve been really intrigued by this book and couldn’t pass up such a deal. Alright, you have 2 [...]

(*)Camp

Sunday, November 6th, 2005

Who would like to help setup/organize an event like MindCamp or BarCamp in the Chicago-area? I’ve been trying to figure out how I can get involved with an event like this and it finally struck me that I should try and organize it… Is there something like this going on? If so, I haven’t heard [...]

Blogspot Spam Really Does Suck…

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

and I’m not the only one who has thought about it lately… Back in September, Matt Haughey noticed the problem. Just the other day, Chris Pirillo noticed the problem. Evan seemed to take things a little personal. Mark Cuban “REALLY” noticed the problem Search engines are useless when they have to filter through more crap [...]

Time For Some Upgradin’

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

The rumor going around is that Movable Type 3.2 is out. Forget Google Talk, Windows Vista Beta 1 and anything else that has recently come out: this is what I’ve been waiting for… I’m very interested in this upgrade. I’ve been toying with jumping over to the WordPress world and this may be what keeps [...]
