ScrapBlog — A New Way to Blog

ScrapBlog

Just in case you haven’t heard via the web, Scrap­Blog has just launch their pre­view-mode per se. Nick Gon­za­lez has writ­ten an announce­ment regard­ing the launch over at TechCrunch yes­ter­day. He men­tioned that you may go to the pre­view mode via http://www.scrapblog.com/preview.

I haven’t tak­en a detailed look at it, but from what I’ve seen, it may be suc­cess­ful like a catchy tune in the sum­mer time. So yeah, take it for a spin. You can even watch Robin Good’s YouTube screen­casts of Scrap­Blog before hand.

All From the Same Tree

Just want to share this quote w/ every­one. I found it just brows­ing a minute ago…

Only when you drink from the riv­er of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the moun­tain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you tru­ly dance.

Should we all con­fess our sins to one anoth­er we would all laugh at one anoth­er for our lack of orig­i­nal­i­ty.
Should we all reveal our virtues we would also laugh for the same cause.

— Khalil Gibran

Virb.com — The MySpace Killer?

Well, what else can I say about this new site—Virb.com. Bril­liant!

I was going to do a write­up about the new site that is going to be com­pet­ing with the giant in online com­mu­ni­ty, MySpace.com but I just found this review arti­cle by Kevin Sylvia, Virb — Advanced Social Net­work­ing.

Here’s my pro­file, virb.com/sherwin. Time to switch =p

Happy Thanksgiving and Damn You Amazon Customers!

Hap­py Turkey Day! It’s been one hec­tic day already. I don’t know if you have heard about Amazon.com’s new gig, Cus­tomers Vote, but I heard it first from Ryan ear­li­er this week. He not­ed it because of the Xbox 360 deal for only a low-down-and-dirty $100 (core sys­tem). That’s about a $200+ sav­ing from its MSRP.

Any­ways, it was one excit­ing and dis­ap­point­ing morn­ing at the same time. Not only was the deal adver­tised on Amazon.com’s home­page, but it was every­where! I mean every­where as in: radio, vlogs, blogs and maybe even on TV. There were only 1,000 units for the deal, and that ain’t a lot. In terms of inter­net-store for a deal this great, that’s less than a sec­ond or two in terms of the deal’s life­time.

Any­ways, enough of my stats talk. I guess the rea­son why I was so upset in not get­ting one (oth­er than I can make a quick $200 or more on ebay if I sell it) is that I got a new toy. I was hop­ing to use the mon­ey from the Xbox to feed this new crack, or at least make it free for me so I would­n’t feel bad about spend­ing some mon­ey on “non­sense” items. Then again, it is from Cost­co.
