Tips for Dads to Promote Girls' Sports

Sat, 23 May 2009 17:42:02 -0700

I have daughters and I am always on the lookout for articles such as this so I felt compelled to share. Years ago I bought a book called Dads & Daughters and it has taught me much. I literally grew up at the tennis club in Stockton, CA, often being dropped off in the morning and picked up at closing. I loved it. My eldest daughter is now playing tennis....and as a one father to many, its different with girls. So, here is an unedited top 10 tips for dads to promote girl's sports. I hope those with daughters find...

TechCrunch – Get your daily dose

Wed, 07 Jan 2009 09:20:42 -0800

I am a long time fan of the top technology blog called TechCrunch, and like any curious, aware, and informed technology CEO I read it daily. It’s a must. Actually, I read it more than daily as I have an icon on my iPhone that take me directly to it so if I’m stuck in line at Whole Foods, I generally will take a peek at the recent stories before I look even at my RSS feeds. I am a startup junkie, no doubt about it. Despite the economic doldrums that hammer us all day in the news – many...

Portland is better with Panels!

Mon, 15 Dec 2008 19:38:21 -0800

Image via WikipediaIt's time I started following Guy’s Kawasaki’s pointers rather than just telling people how useful they are. In particular, some time ago, Guy posted some tips about blogging. One of his main pointers was to use numbered “lists” as the foundation for one’s post. He still does this most of the time to this day, and for obvious reasons, it works. Now, enter Panels, and a much more interesting way to post about things that are of interest to you and your readers. As you explore these panels, please make sure to try out adding a review yourself...

Panels v 1.0, circa 1999

Tue, 18 Nov 2008 14:37:00 -0800

It started here, with the nutrition panel, in 1999. It was actually the winter of 1999 to be exact, and it was around the time I shook hands with the CEO of ImageX (then a high flying newly public company) to sell my company – Extensis, for about $140 million. Extensis also started and owned, the first portal for the creative professional market segment. This is important for the story, as you see Extensis/ had grown to be an industry leading, profitable $24 million business selling graphics software to creative professionals all over the world. Funded by Adobe Ventures...

Panels Widget Preview & Reviews

Mon, 06 Oct 2008 19:10:39 -0700

Its been about three weeks since we started quietly rolling out panels and overall feedback and specific user behavior continues to exceed our expectations. Most recently, we've again updated the system and can offer a peek at a few more things: We have enabled our "community reviews" capability, so to check it out simply go to any panel you encounter and be the first to write a review right inside the panel! Try rolling over this Home Depot panel to get a quick look at the "Reviews" tab! (Look for integrated "Yelp" reviews soon too!) Widget Preview: Notice here, on...

Introducing all-new "panels", no blog should be without it!

Thu, 11 Sep 2008 12:45:48 -0700

Dear friends, investors, partners, former colleagues, bloggers, and those that may have just stumbled here for the first time…I am ecstatic to informally announce that our latest endeavor, “panels” is close to launch. We’re in a small private beta phase right now so if you’d like to try it out on your blog or web site please contact me ASAP and I’ll get you on the list at In the spirit of “show me” versus tell me... simply roll over any URL that has the panels icon (several are in this post after various company names) to see our...

Transparency vs. Stealth...that is the question

Thu, 06 Dec 2007 01:26:05 -0800

I saved this wired article by Clive Thompson earlier this year about corporate transparency. It explains what "transparency" means in this web 2.0 world we are living in ranging from the CEO of Red Fin's utilization of transparency to shake things up in the residential real estate market to how some "venture capitalists now demand that CEOs be fluent in blogspeak." I doubt they demand it, though it is worth noting that I did have to explain what a blog was to some of my VCs not so long ago. (And I'm definitely not going to be transparent about that...

Information overload in business!? Web 2.0 in the enterprise inevitable?! No shit.

Wed, 31 Oct 2007 10:43:13 -0700

So, despite being off on another project since April of this year, I still get my RSS feeds and google alerts for anything touching the enterprise RSS space, attention (which is also gaining some steam), Attensa (which I and some pals co-founded a few years back), NewsGator, and KnowNow. I was surprised and thrilled to see that finally the media is paying attention to what has been going for years - yes years - in the enterprise with regard to RSS. There were no solutions until NewsGator and Attensa showed up with our respective Enterprise Solutions. It is a big...

A picture worth a thousand me anyway

Mon, 10 Sep 2007 10:46:59 -0700

So, having just dropped the kids off at school a few hours ago, I encountered a big ugly garbage truck. It was blocking the road and I was forced to wait. I am impatient so I didn't wait long. I don't personally write out the bills so I was unaware who collected our garbage...turns out its RSS! I laughed out loud. No, I haven't given up on RSS, far from it, as my new gig will utilize it in a variety of ways. But as far as moving on to a new chapter in my professional life, with things really...

Dave Winer thinks FeedBurner is in trouble. Me too.

Mon, 23 Jul 2007 15:25:08 -0700

I have been a FeedBurner fan for a while now, and, I think I still am. Unfortunately though, its because there is no viable alternative. Google had earlier acquired the only other similar service, MeasureMap, in early 2006, which near as I can tell was the only other game in town - then or now. I posted a few months back on my so called love for FeedBurner, and I recommend it all of the time to folks, but Dave Winer's two posts on the subject made me think about it a little more clearly. But first, the posts. Winer's...
