Age Transformation Software

Click Here, download your photo and see what you will look like in 10, 20, even 30 yrs. I am not posting mine because it is just that bad. (Normally I am not vain, but I don't want to give any one nightmares)

The Itty Bitty Browser

Yet another fun web tool. You can think of this like picture in picture for a web page. Search the web without ever leaving the page you are already on.

Chromasia Does it Again...

I have posted about this site before and I am always surprised by the work I find here. I think what I like most about the site is 1) its super clean, a minimalist modernist's dream 2) all the photos are links to the previous day's posts.

Here are links to my two fav photos as of now 1) a lake 2) sunset

Fordham Crew Stats from St. Valentine's Day Massacre 1998

I don't know if any of you know this, but I used to row for Fordham. I have some great stories from those rowing days. There was the time I fell in the Harlem River and the time Mandy and I flipped a skull in Miami during winter practice. Well I loved the workouts and I loved the drinking parties after races. I met some really great people because of it. Did anyone know that some of our stats are posted on line?  I wonder what else is out there.

Veronica Meets Kofi Annan's Wife, Nane @ the United Nations

As you may or may not know, I went to a breakfast/Conference at the United Nations. It was great. The panel was excellent.

Nane Annan and I - Thanks for the picture. (on a side note, I had asked her body guard to take the shot. He said no, and I realized why he couldn't) She is very nice and has been a huge proponent of many social issues.

Teens Face Felony Charges for Hacking HS Laptops

Link: http://www.berksmontnews.com

"Thirteen Kutztown Area High School students are facing felony charges for tampering with district-issued laptop computers. According to parent testimony and confirmed by an otherwise vaguely-worded letter from the Kutztown Police Department, students got hold of the system's secret administrative password and reconfigured their computers to achieve greater Internet and network access"

Blogs that Double As Resumes

There is this Venture Capitalist, Andrew Anker, that has a few web blogs. Now I know some people have spoken about how they use the web to do due diligence on people they are interested in hiring. Well Andrews central blog reads like a resume.

"I have worked for over 17 years in a variety of roles including company founder, venture investor, investment banker and programmer"

What a great idea to have a resume blog especially if you are involved within the web/tech community. Your resume would be more like a dynamic robust portfolio of your accomplishments.

He has links to people that have posted about him or quoted him. He mentions several success stories in his career as well as his education. He even has a baseball blog with the MLB and a Venture Blog.

Now clearly he has one to many blogs. I mean one for me is enough to manage right now. But I do like the idea of having a centralized page that links all your TrackBacks and various other forms of web presence otherwise referred to as the all mighty "blogosphere". Very strange though. For all the blogs this dude has, he has no comment code anywhere except on his live journal blog.

Why Should You Care

If you put all the cool stuff you do on a site somewhere maybe one day someone will stumble upon it while doing some due diligence and something good might come of it.

Lisa's Birthday Get together Rocked

I just had to post this. We all went to the Irish pub on 7th Avenue last weekend, and it has become a sort of tradition. I have no pics, but I had a great time. All I have to say is single malt and never confuse your Roman Gods with Greek Gods.
