It has been a couple of weeks since I last made a “notes” post. I guess that’s what happens when you’re in the middle of launching a product and travelling to a trade show! Anyway, here are this week’s notes:
- I got my Moo cards in the mail! Wanna make your own? Go here.
- Allergic to cats but want one anyway? If you can get approved, try purchasing one of these genetically modified, hypoallergenic cats! I’m a dog person myself.
- Remember hearing a while back about that ringtone that only people under 30 years of age could hear? Well the inventor won the Ig Nobel Peace Prize for it.
- Rexall has donated a bunch of money to the University of Alberta for the pharmacy program. Daryl Katz is good like that.
- Do you hate partial text feeds? Want full text feeds only? Sign the petition! Not sure what the hell I am talking about? Read this.
- This look at a Chinese military site is a little old, but interesting nonetheless. Makes you wonder what else China could be up to!
- Anyone know anything about Jesus Camp? Seems to be stirring up quite the controversy.
- Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!
Favorite songs at the moment:
High Energy Song: “Ready to Fall” by Rise Against
Low Energy Song: “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol
Random Song: “Anything” by JoJo (it samples heavily from Toto’s “Africa”)
“The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time” by Jeffrey Sachs
“The Wisdom of Crowds” by James Surowiecki
I finished the book on the plane on the way to Ontario, CA for the Portable Media Expo. I thought the book was great, but that’s not surprising, because the main idea he presents is just so darn intriguing. I highly recommend this book.
