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 [...]

Glad I made it to TECHcocktail

Friday, July 7th, 2006

Last night I made the trek last night to the inaugural TECHcocktail event in Chicago. For being such a big city, there never has seemed to be any sort of techy/webby/bloggy community that I was ever able to find.

Tagging arrives (a year late)

Thursday, May 4th, 2006

I’ve been doing some experimenting with things and have started implementing tags over the last couple of days to my posts on marusin.com. I just flipped the switch for them to actually display on the site. I don’t know how I feel about things so far, so we shall see if I keep them or [...]

“Damn, it feels good to be a gangster”

Monday, May 1st, 2006

Please note my updated resume page. Quick Update:  Someone asked me why I did this.  It’s primarily to ward off the clueless headhunters who just learned how to use Google (and also because something in that quote from Scoble has really stuck with me).
